Thanks. Do you remember if the Jerksons was in a 15 pack or 20 pack?

My Jerksons came from a 15 pack.

You don't. you order a bunch to try and get the one you want and if you don't want a particular one, you can return it.

If you buy them in the store, you can pick the one you want if you know what to look for. Same as people who knew which cup to pick in the boxes, if you were lucky enough to find them. I was never able to find them in the targets or walmarts by us.
15 packs were for sale in target and walmarts?  I thought they were Amazon only.  Neat strategy, just order tons of 15 packs and then return them.  The key is for these to be returned to SI so they can get the message that people are sick of their process.

My Jerkson's mini also came from a 15 piece Pack. I pulled Burden from 20 piece packs.

Super Impulse promotes the hell out of the minis on social media. Here’s an ad that appeared on Twitter today. Minute Mud!

   LOL, I was at a Walmart today they actually had 11 cups so I bought the one that has Exceedrin. Toy aisle was void of any product. I am still hoping Minute Mud and the others show up. Crazy stuff dealing with SI.

The 15 and 20 piece boxes now come in 2 paks on Amazon.
Could this slightly new configuration include the missing series 1 minis????

I believe these "bundles" are just a 3rd party retailer selling 2 single packages together at a slight discount.  Not really a different configuration from SI...but who really knows for sure with this product...

The two pack I saw (a 15+20) cost more than two singles. How is that going to sell?

I do not think they are available elsewhere at present. I was wondering if they will end up selling multipacks with Minute Mud and Ebayer exclusively on Ebay?

That would not surprise me.  Ne evidence of it yet though. I still think we need to stage a protest in front of their Bristol PA HG.   :]

That's odd - the 2 packs of the 15s are about $3.00 cheaper than buying separately....

there seems to be a jillion mini threads so wasn't sure which one to post but I found some cups at 5 and under, the case seems to have no repeated tops on either layer.  Anyone have any success in nailing down where rares might be?

Series 1 which is why I posted in the series 1 thread.  $5 per cup.  Ratz case suggesting wave 4?

Here is my latest email to SI attempting to get actual info on the last two mini's from series one:


Hi Susan,

   I hope all is well with you. I now only lack the Ebayer and Minute Mud Mini's from series one. Can you please advise if there will be a release of series One that contains those last two titles? Maybe an Ebay exclusive?  They are not in the latest wave to hit WalMart or Target.  Looking forward to completing the set. If your answer is that they are already released; I have to advise you that that is not correct. The team from the Wacky boards has been continually buying cups from WalMart and Target and we still have not found those two titles. Lastly, can you advise how many of the Gold Windhex Rare Mini's were made for Series Two? So far only one has been found by a Wacky Forum Member. Is that title limited to 10 made?

Thanks,  Andrew

I think this part of your message has her saying "Mission accomplished: I knew releasing them in waves and hiding two would get them to buy more!"  After all, once you get them all, you'd quit buying, correct?

It's like that watch that we saw in the bubble gum machine as kids.  We kept pumping in our quarters and getting the cheap rubbery creatures that were only worth a nickel instead.  Except now, the quarter is $6.  I call it Marketing 101 - create a demand and make it difficult to achieve.

She has given you politician vague misleading answers before why do you think you're suddenly going to get a direct truthful answer?  No matter what her answer is it makes them liable for deceitful advertising.  They have not responded to the Better Business Bureau so that case will close as unresolved which I then will forward to the State Attorney General

She has also told me when they were shipping to various retailers so maintaining communication is still beneficial in terms of being able to gain some intel.
I also collect World's Smallest Hot Wheels which have not been sold in a dishonest fashion; so I want to keep the communication channel open.

I totally get keeping the communication channel open, I just don't understand why you are asking questions historically you know she wont answer ie what is your expectation?  think about it, every possibly answer she gives will make her look bad, if she says they were never issued, bait and switch having them on the checklists, if they are only being issued now, bait and switch as every collector had an expectation these were attainable in previous purchases, she might lie and say they have been released and our entire community just has bad luck....and even with her lie, you will still support her business.  How about the money be spent on products issued by Topps directly and support the artists?  At some point, that is the decision people will have to make here.

I ask the questions because time has passed and the answer may change.  As for supporting Topps directly, this is a licensed product so Topps makes money on every purchase.

Did the wave 4(ratz) Target boxes have 24 different cup tops?  The box at my local Target that just arrived look somewhere to the five and under box, no repeat tops.

I didn't know the terms of the royalty payments were publuc,  it can be a flat fee or can be a percentage of sales so we know for a fact it's a percentage of sales?

Here is the reply I just received from SI. My contact is now forwarding any inquires to the PR Dept. I guess this is a stemming from some of the communication they have received around this product.

Hi Andrew,

So great to hear from you and I’m glad to hear you’re close to completing the collection.

You will find Ebayer and Minute Mud at Walmart. Keep a lookout, they’re there, I promise!


As for the Gold Windhex, this is a “Fuggetaboutit” Rare – the most rare of three tiers of rare in the series 2 collection.  I am SO excited to hear someone got it. It truly is a special rare, and not many will come across this while collecting!

I don't know what to make about her answer on Ebayer and Minute Mud
about being at Walmart, however her reaction on the gold Windhex
makes it seem like there's only 10 or 20 made

Based on her answer of “I promise” do you think there was a Walmart wave we missed? I think in a previous post you stated that they told you that they are done with series 1 as they are promoting and selling series 2 now. This is SO FRUSTRATING.
When I was a kid the last sticker I needed was Minute Mud to complete the series. Now it haunts me again!

I know I say this occasionally, but it seems very strange that if they are out there, we would not have seen a listing or two on ebay, someone here on the forum tripping on one, or someone taking a victory lap on one of the public forums. Maybe Walmart has a newer wave at distribution centers that haven't made it to stores yet. I check out two local Walmarts about once a week. The have not restocked any minis since the last wave.

I just saw a box of Wave 1s at Target yesterday. I picked up one tub for the Dr Popper that I didn't have and found a Jail-O, but with a scratch. I checked the bottom of the tub and its the same as the previous Series 1 Wave 4 and also had the Ratz in the window display. Was hoping that this was the same as the Walmart next wave but it may be the same as previous. Next time I'm there I'll take a picture of all of the tubs. I don't want to buy anymore Series 1 minis though....
