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.

I think Ducko Cement could be figured out, too.

I am not understanding how people are feeling packages. It sounds like something I should be against. Arent the minis sealed inside a cup and therefore you cannot feel the bags?

We just mean that once you open a cup but before you open a pack, you can sometimes tell what title is inside by the shape/feel.  Nothing nefarious,  it was just mentioned to point to the lack of unique shapes in this series.

I left a bunch of Series 2 pieces sealed, and gave them out at Halloween.  But, I definitely opened every Windhex!  The easiest piece to identify by shape is Burden.

I have been to 4 Targets 4 of the 5 days this week including today.

2 Have had GPK - Pat - I THINK $6.99 but did not pay attention as they are not in my sphere.

NO MINIs Series 3 - What is left of the S2s are still there.... hopefully Monday or Tuesday - WAS hoping to be stuck with them while stuck with this white crap coming our way......

Nothing here in the mid-west. It feels like its just too early yet.

Someone should shake loose of some cool reissue items I can occupy myself with buying lol

As requested by several people, here are pics of the top and bottom levels of the case I opened earlier this week, along with the positions of the cups of note.





I pulled the really rare black Fibby's from the top level cup with Hurtz Bird Seed showing.  The STD rare red sparkle was in the cup with Goonman's on top.  The cup with Creep on top included two Mrs. Small's minis.

On the lower level, the cup with Foolite on top had the rare red sparkle 6-Urp.  The cup with Argh on top included another Argh.

Pat, I think those GPK's were 6.99 as well, as someone else stated?

Cool to find series 3, usually we get them up here early on.

I read a post from one of the GPK collectors where the item wouldn't scan, so the cashier just rang them all up at $1 each.  :o

I wonder if that lucky person then bought themselves a lottery ticket?

Wow, that's a cashier who is not very well attuned to what things cost!  Keep him/her off The Price is Right.

I'm still waiting for my case to arrive.  Should be here today or in the next day or two.

I've checked maybe one Target per day on average this week and have found nothing.  All seem to have the GPK cases at 6.99 each with none missing from them.

With none missing?  That surprises me.

Boy that was a quick turnaround. Just on Wednesday I saw their preorder ad for shipping in July and wrote them. They said yes they are getting them in July. I told them they were out now. They said that sometimes happens big chains like Target get them first.

You can use the code "5OFF" for 5% Off at checkout. With tax and $12.00 shipping it still winds up to be $140.00  :'(

I thought I remember the pre-orders for the last series being in the $79.00 area. Was I imagining that? I thought the pre-orders with shipping and tax were around $110 to $120 for series 1 and 2. So it seems like a jump in price for series 3.

Oh, I never did pre-orders for these so I can't help you.  I bought Series 1 and 2 cups at retail, where a case was about $156  :o

So $140 for a case….i assume you get the display…vs. $155 at retail $5.99 x 24 plus 8 percent sales tax…and they might not let you have the display box…am I crazy or was martian hats shown in promos? Did anyone pull a  martian hats? Pat, am I to understand you pulled 62 titles from a case if 120 minis??? That sounds like an awful lot of doubles…

I did pull a Martian Hats mini.  As for lots of doubles, I thought this wasn't so bad, since I got 62 different out of 72 commons, and 3 different rares out of 10.  I've already made a trade for 4 of the commons I didn't pull, and am sure there will be more trades forthcoming.

Not a bad price and I'm tempted to buy one.  But, for only a little more, I can buy one at Target and, I'm thinking, get it sooner.  Timing is important and I wish I knew for sure when I could get a case from both.  But my assumption is Target will be quicker at this point.

I agree. Timing is super important with these, especially with the distribution model. I tried to skim through the threads... but has Target gotten them? I haven't seen them in the stores.

None have been found at Target yet.  I've checked about a store per day, and others have been checking as well.  I keep thinking any day now, but that may be blind optimism.

I had hoped to check a larger Target near me today, but the roads and parking lots are all snowy and icy messes.  I'm sticking with mail order for now.

Even though I ordered the case, I plan on trying to restrain myself and open 3 or 4 cups per day.  Keep the thrill going all week.  :]
