welcome to the mini series that just won't end....

Wave 4 of the Series 3 minis has recently been released.

As with the other Waves, this one is specific to a chain store - this time Family Dollar. The Item # also reflects this:  5200FD

The company that distributes a lot of products to Family Dollar is Midwood Brands LLC

I mention that because they are making it very well known that they are involved.
Not only is their info added to the sides of the cups, but even worse -
it's been added to all the stickers!!!!




here's the UPCs of all four waves of cups. The Family Dollar cups are also easy to spot, as they all have a large $5 on one of the sides.

Good lord!  I wonder if SI simply had too many of these Minis sitting around the storehouse somewhere or there actually is a demand for them.  Sounds like Family Dollar is at least charging a buck less per cup.  I don't think we have too many of those around Madison, WI, where I live, but I may pick up a couple cups for the heck of it if I find them.

I don't think they were sitting around sealed with those logos preprinted. Kind of a weird situation. Just why now? Isn't 4 about to be released?

Right, it doesn't make sense that they would have been sitting around (at least not in cups; maybe it's possible they had a bunch of loose ones, but who knows).  Definitely a weird situation.  I wonder if the presence of these series 3 minis is why series 4 was originally "scheduled" (speculated?) to be on sale by now and why it's been pushed back to some future undisclosed date.

It will be interesting to see if there are any new variants in this Family Dollar wave, similar to the Commie Cleanser, which I believe was only found at CVS and Meijer stores. Meijer is how I found my Commie Cleanser mini and sticker!

Don't know about this, but I went to my local Family Dollar and found a 6-pack box of cups there...so, bought them all for fun. Didn't find any new variants that I noticed, but in those 6 cups, I got 4 rares (Black Libby's, Blue Pupsi, Red STD and Red 6-Urp, if I remember right). Just thought the odds there was a tad high...

those odds are just right.
the cups and box arrangements have been identical for Walmart and CVS and now for Family Dollar
A tray of 6 cups will get you three of the red/green rare pieces
The black Really Rare are 1 per 12 cups (two trays).
You did well getting the black Libby's!!

I wonder if those six cups got switched around a bit.  I took some pretty accurate notes and I don't recall a "six pack" with those exact titles showing (even with one of the cups showing a sticker and not a mini).  But the three red/blue rares and the 50% chance of getting a black really rare one fits with what I was finding.

Were the cups $5?

I went to the one Family Dollar in my city and didn't see any cups.  Was curious to see what was there and pick up a few just for the sake of it, but may check back in a week.

Yes, they were $5 per cup. They were with the Toys, fairly hidden on a bottom shelf.

I saw this on Ebay, didn't see them available on Amazon.
Any idea where these might be available?

Good lord!  Don't tell me this is a new kind of packaging for series 3?  I don't recall seeing these anywhere, but it's so hard to follow Super Impulse that I forget what is what.  I'm curious, though, if anyone buys these if they reveal anything new or different than what we've seen before.

Seems like those would show up on Amazon eventually?

I can only imagine how crushed the larger S3 stickers are in those small slots!

Have those multi-packs shown up anywhere, Amazon or otherwise, before?  I don't recall them, but it is hard to keep the various series and waves straight.

These are new for Series 3.
Seemed inevitable that they’d show up after SI had similar multi packs for both S1 and S2.
Surprising how long it’s taken for them to be released.

I’ll update the Master List to show a Wave 5.

The seller said he got 2 packs in a grouping he bought.
Not exactly a helpful lead on where they might be distributed.

It won't matter to me if they are, I can't get excited about collecting creased and crumbled up new stickers. Lol

I doubt it will matter to me anymore, either, but I am curious!

Do you need Scrapple? I've got one that's a little off-center to the right. I've also got five Series 2 minis: three Old Skool ones- Dr. Ono, Eviltime and Ultra Blight - and two New Skool ones - Nuttin' Butta... and Clodlike - if you need them.

Series 4 damn well better not be series 3 repackaged. They are probably trying to squeeze every last dime out if Series 3 before their massive fraudulent Series 4 rollout…

merged this thread with the larger Mini Series 3 topic, and added info and pics of these three new pairs into my post on the prior page that has the initial 12 pairs
