Mini Series 3 Consipiracy Theory!?!?!
« on: February 14, 2022, 03:41:13 PM »
Well,

I opened most of mine over the weekend.  The usual placement and topper of Muellers was about to let me score and.......
Out of a SEALED box and SEALED container....... this EMPTY wrapper with a hole in it?

Coincidence??  Is it possible there are thieves in the production line that know what is going where?
I just find this ironic that a "known" hit container and I find this....... Talk amongst yourselves......

     Richard, this is extremely disturbing. Are you going to report this to SI? Not like anything would ever happen, but you never know. Maybe something positive could result like getting some free product.

I had not intended to bring this up but since you all are reporting things like this.....

As I was opening my case....I was very surprised at how easy the plastic sealed top of each cup came off.....disturbingly easy compared to the previous two series.
I had also noted that the tape on the case itself looked odd.

Im sure its nothing but just super odd compared to the previous series.

Anyone else notice this?

Yes, the cap tops were very easy to open compared to series 1 and 2.

I got a case from Rylees Attic.  When I opened the shipping box the case was open with a cardboard sheet on top and the display cardboard was loose (the one that gets inserted into the back for retail display). It's the first time I ordered a case and thought it would have been sealed in plastic or something.  Is it suppose to be sealed or is this how they usually come? 

Yes, I also thought the plastic seal on each cup was barely glued down and opened way to easy. (compared to series 1 & 2) 

And whoa....how crazy you got 21 of the same sticker!  You may have the market cornered on Swiss Mess stickers. ;D

My cases were the same, with the backer insert separate.  This last case was packed upside down in the box, but remarkably, the cups were all in place.

I got a cup missing a mini.  The topper was Muler's, upper level, bottom left corner.

Richard, you should definitely put that one on eBay.  It fits in with all the other "error" Wackys that are listed there because they are  1. missing a border so it has no copyright, 2. Has a torn border so it's a printing error,  3. miscut so part of another sticker is showing,  4. punched out so the sticker is missing,  5. What else have I forgotten?

I did notice the tops pealed off very easily, especially compared to the other two series.

I'm glad you mentioned the box, because my SI box, while it was shipped inside a very nice Toy Wiz box, had damaged cardboard under the sealed tape.   It was very strange.   Like someone had taken a torn-open box and resealed it.

The lids peel off very easily on the Target ones I found today as well.

I've opened two cases, both from Rylee's Attic.  I don't think I found anything amiss with the possible exception of one cup having two stickers (same title) and the fact that one case didn't have a "really rare" in it.  Don't think either of those two things could truly be called "amiss" so I either got lucky or anything that is truly amiss is the exception rather than the rule.

I had one case without a "really rare" and agree that is probably not indicative of a problem.  I really do have to wonder about the cup that was missing a wrapped mini.  That had to have happened at the factory.

Im halfway through my Rylees case, and have hit FOUR Ivery Snow minis out of 12 cups….Also two Mrs Smalls fish sticks minis in the same cup. These could be random errors, but i believe Pat mentioned she also got two Mrs Smalls in the same cup…..Curious…

Considering there is hourly dialogue and a clear search to find these in target, that sure was a subtle way to announce a target finding.....

I posted my Target finds in the main Series 3 thread for all to see! I only posted here about the lids being easy to pull off and other QC issues because some thought SI was tampering with these from within....which is not happening. Not sure why Bandaches is defending Napoleon Dynamite. :]

I agree. Full on hunt for these in target and the first to find them casually slips a minor mention of that in a comment.  That was worthy of a News Flash Moment.

It sounds like it was more formally announced in one of other 100 threads on Minis and the presumption is that everyone reads all comments in all threads before going back to comment  :-X

I received a cup in a case that had no sticker AND no top mini; just the plastic holder for the mini and 4 unopened minis inside the cup.

The inner display box does not come sealed/ wrapped in plastic.  I haven't seen any mini cases I've ordered from SI arrive sealed inside the cardboard packaging.
