Tied and Toad are both in the 3rd series. Not very inventive. Triks looks great. At least we know you can get a free Triks with every box!

     It appears that there are zero new shapes this time. Mostly boxes and cans, smh.

That’s okay, my local Target literally doesn’t have a card/pog aisle…

Series 3 minis are showing up on eBay. Seller "Gymbokiddo" has them individually listed...
https://www.ebay.com/sch/gymbokiddo/m.html?item=194769312299&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m3561.l2562
I don't see any other sellers with them though.

I wonder how this person got them when they are not out yet…an in at the company? They “fell off a truck?” They dont seem to be pre-orders. I am NOT optimistic at seeing $50 fir a 6 Urp! what will a Pupsi go for? $100?

I pre-ordered a case from a private seller and they arrived yesterday.  As mentioned in another post, no really new shapes, unless the Soda cans having a pull tab on the top counts.  I feel that many titles seemed to be the wrong shape/size.  I was really looking forward to Shrunken Donuts, but the shape is completely wrong.  And Rowdy is nearly twice the size that Jail-O was?  The wrap titles could have been a little longer.  It was cool though to immediately recognize each title, which didn't always happen when I pulled New Skool titles in Series 1 and 2.

I pulled 61 different "commons" from the cups; too early to be sure, but Killette may only be available in the display window, like Rotz was in Series 2.  I also pulled one really rare (Fibby's black) and two Rares (6-Urp and STD Oil, red sparkles).

The minis are heavy on detergent and soap.  And with so many boxes and cans, there aren't many titles you can identify by feeling the packet. 

The stickers were a big disappointment.  The blue background is distracting, but worse, they were jammed into these cups carelessly and are very bent up.  Many of the ones I pulled are popped along the kiss cut.  I got 20 different titles out of the 24 stickers.

I just realized that one of my Sicken of the Sea minis has the label upside down  :P

I also forgot to include that two cups contained duplicate minis.  I had a topper match a wrapped mini (Argh) and a cup with Creep on top had 2 of Mrs. Smalls in it.

Pat, My story is almost identical to yours. I received 61 different mini titles and 21 different stickers. Stickers were packed terribly. Only two rares in my case... Pupsie Cola and Mountain Goo.

I haven't decided yet whether to keep the rares or sell them   :-\

I'd say Target sooner than Walmart.
The Wally World shipments have been months behind the Target on the last two Series.

The set is supposed to be 72 commons, of which 66 have already surfaced, and 10 chasers: 6 rares, 3 really rares, and 1 fuggetaboutit.

Thanks!  I'm afraid that means there will be six "regulars" that will be quite tough to find.  I hope I'm wrong and some of those will not really be hard to find, but I fear SI's past will be present once again.

I ordered a case from a woman named Deborah in FL.  Mine has not yet arrived, but I also ordered one from her for series 2 and I did indeed get a display box and I'm sure I'll get one for series 3.  I'd pass along her info, but I believe she has no cases left.

Now that you mention it, Killette is not on the checklist, is it? Or did I miss it?

If it’s Killette Fright Guard it’s on the online checklists.

It is on the bottom row on the side with the 6 "rares," 4th from the right, as Fright Guard.

I got my case from the same person, and I got her last case.  I sent her a message this morning telling her that I think she could find some more customers here.  Will post what I hear back.

I know we have a very limited sampling but so far (a few cases here and a handful of ebay lots), but the only titles I have not seen someone confirm as  pulled (besides the rares) are:
   Choke King
   Heavy Trash Bags
   Ivy
   Hurtz Crazy Canary Food

Duh, My brain was thinking Fright Guard rather than Killette on this one. I did pull this one out of a cup

So it sounds like all of the commons are probably in the initial case release since that leaves only Ivy. I wonder if that means Walmart may not be carrying them this go around or at least didn't lobby for titles only available through them. Perhaps some of the rare titles will only be available only through Walmart.

I dont love wal mart’s business model….However, the good thing about Wal Mart is they are everywhere…. I dont know much about retail, but neither the Wal Mart or the Target in my medium  sized city (metropolitan area of 300,000) have a card aisle any more. Unless one of our 4 Wal Marts carries them near the registers, i will be buying them online…Nothing against the person selling on e-bay, but $5 per mini, plus $3 postage, seems awfully high…

I have a case coming and would be happy to share what I find in terms of the rares.  Anyone else willing to do that here would be greatly appreciated.  It sounds like there may only be one "regular", Ivy, that may be tough to find.  That's certainly an improvement over the previous two series.

Well, at $8 with shipping, ebay takes $1 and postage is at least $4.25, which leaves max $2.75 before you account for the bubble envelope/box and the person's time.  It works out a LOT better if you buy several pieces and can pay just the one shipping charge.

Excellent point. I suppose You folks who bought a case cannot confirm whether the retail price will be $5.99 or $6.99 per cup. If they went up a full dollar and have fewer unique shapes, seems like they just want to maximize profits…those fiends!

I was reading on a GPK forum over the weekend where people reported that Meijers (sp?) was charging less than Target.

Well, there are more differently sized rectangles than before  ;D  Mr. Bog Bread, Broken, Creep. Fright Guard, and Windax may be the only titles identifiable by feel while in the wrapper.
