My hope is that since Ebayer and MM are not rares; they end up as Toppers in the wave they show up in. Gadzooka is a Topper in the Two packs.
Walmart sometimes does not stage their stock correctly and takes awhile to get new product out.  We see this with Hot Wheels from time to time.

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!
you got the mix of politician answer and a lie neither of which aligns with responsible advertising.  Complete bait and switch and now she has people running off the buy the remaining stock at walmart, very clever.  In no way shape or form should titles be reserved to waves of specific sales channel ie walmart, amazon, Target.  None of this was in any way shape or form disclosed in any material describing odds of getting these items.

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....

tubs = cups?  Why do you say this is wave 1 when it was a wave 4 box with Ratz?

That was from the file.

According to the series 1 thread, Dr popper was wave 4 and Ratz is wave 4 and I don't see target suddenly having wave 1 so my money is on this being a wave 4 cup.

What file?

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!

Amanda Lao

Vice President, Marketing and Communications

I appreciate that she responded, but I can't even imagine ebayer and minute mud are "there".  When none of us has found, seen, or heard of one, it's not there.  Good lord, we've known about a "Furgetaboutit" gold Windhex and not a single ebayer or minute mud?  She's seriously misinformed or lying.

And it would have been nice if she said how many gold Windhexes are out there :(

It's probably unlikely, but her "promise " of Ebayer and Minute Mud being at Walmart almost seems like they would be mixed in with series 2.
Otherwise why would she make a bold statement about 2 random
titles.

I have not paid close attention to the sticker prices, but from what little I've seen, there almost appears to be no rhyme or reason to them.  Some seem to go crazy high for no reason and others don't sell for .99.  I certainly don't get it.  I'm close to being done with all I am going to collect for stickers for series 1 and hope I get lucky selling extras on ebay.  I just have no idea how to price them or what to expect.

I doubt they would mix anything from Series1 in with Series 2 and WalMart won't have Series 2 for Two months is the last I heard.  My money is on WalMart still sitting on pallets of Series 1  Wave 3 and having no plans on shipping out Wave 5 until they sell their Wave 3 inventory.

But since Walmart hasn't put out Wave 5 yet, we don't know how to tell the difference between Wave 3 and 5 cups there, right?  Super Insult is too nice, I call Super Insidius!!

there is almost no possibility all nearly 200 walmart distribution centers are sitting on wave 5 inventory without distributing any to any stores.  If that was possible and zero walmart stores were ready to take another wave of product, Walmart would have sent back the product to SI unless SI has an agreement with walmart that instead of taking returns, walmart can issue a chargeback and blowout the inventory at or below cost.  Did anyone verify that walmart that was rumored to be blowing out inventory at $1 a case?  I am hoping walmart returns the product as it would serve SI right.  If a wave 5 does appear, it is much more likely that SI lied and that shipment of wave 5 was only recent.  I hope this latter event is true as it plays well into my claim against them, they withheld some of the titles while providing no information as such causing an inflation of their sales. 

The guy blowing out lots of 40 cups at $129 are walmart cups.  He has at least 7 blocks of 40.  He got them at his local walmart on clearance!  Now we are hearing more stories of walmart clearance sales on these!  Why on earth would walmart take another wave when they need to clearance sale their existing inventory?  this guy just told me he has never seen ebayer or minute mud on the top of any of the near 300 walmart cups he has nor has he found those in any cups he opened.

you mean they're implying that there is yet another "wave" in Walmart, that should
contain eBayer and Minute Mud?  Are we sure they weren't just talking about the
stickers but rather the figurines themselves?

I'll bite the bullet and get a few more tubs in Walmart if I see them, but I hope
Super Insult is not just telling us a story?

I come back to the fact the non-rare mini's usually end up as Toppers and we need to just wait till we see cups in WalMart with a different mix on top than Wave 3.
We all know what the Wave 3 Toppers are as we've seen them a hundred times at WalMart. Once they get in a new assortment; it will be obvious to us.

Well, I have only been in Walmart twice in the last year because they have made it very difficult to park and get in and out, so I will appreciate any tips on what might be obvious to others.

I think "we all" refers to like 3 people....you are over estimating the interest in walmart cups.  Yes, if a new wave is sent out, one would hope it is clearly distinguishable but as I said before, why would Walmart consider taking a new wave of a product when they are already stuck with stale inventory which is the rationalization for why walmart hasn't put out this new wave yet?  Clearance sale wave 3 so they can put what appears to them to be the same product out for full price and then series 2 right behind it?

I stand corrected and apologize for the error.  I will advise the team when I deduce that the last wave has landed at Wally. If one of the other two board members who frequent Wally discerns that the last wave has arrived I trust they will alert us also.

LOL, but think about it, if they are commons and thousands of them are yet to arrive at walmart, they will be plentiful and part of the stash that sells for under $1 each so there shouldn't be a need to rush other than to be first to sell them on ebay before the price crashes like gamestop.

follow up to my post above, every person I have found blowing out large lots of cups on ebay found them on sale at walmart so there are multiple examples across multiple states of walmart blowing out excess product at steep discounts.  I asked each of them for any evidence of ebayer or Minute mud showing on a cup suggesting I would buy their entire supply of they did and 100% of them said there were none showing. 

Does anyone need any more evidence that SI is full of liars?  Andrew may be right that yet another wave is coming that might contain these final two titles which would be incredible that Walmart would take and put out more product that it has been forced to put on sale.  I am more anxious than ever to find out if this sales tactic by SI is legal.

Ernie,

I checked out the BBB website, and SI indeed has a profile (I take it that is because of your hard work and persistence!)  But what I found odd is that not 1 complaint nor 1 review is posted--not even your complaint that opened the profile?   Curious on your thoughts on this.

Yes their profile was just created recently.  My case is still open so it won't post until closed and since I have an open complaint, I can't also leave negative feedback.

I called Super Impulse today as the Attorney General of PA insists all communication channels be used before filing complaint with them and I had not actually called SI.  I hit #2 to talk to sales and reached someone named Susan.  She exactly resonated the liar culture of SI.  She says plenty of minute muds and ebayers have been found and numerous collectors have told them they completed series 1.  She told me when one million(don't know if it is $ or cups or pieces) are sold, a series gets discontinued and series 1 is officially discontinued. 

She admitted ebayer and Minute mud are walmart exclusives.  I told her thousnads of walmart cups have been purchased and walmart is dumping its excess at discount prices and ZERO of these dumped cups nor has ebay turned up these titles.  I also told her it is bait and switch to withhold titles as exclusive to walmart when no such communication has been available for 7 months and it is not communication at POS checklists, display boxes anywhere.  She claimed she has never seen my emails to them(liar) and she started to rush me off the phone and told me to email her directly(susan@superimpulse.com).  I have emailed her full details on our findings.  My obligation to work with them is done and I am filing with the state attorney general of PA today.

I received a response from someone who claims he is the president of SI:

I made claims that one can not collect them all from Target boxes as they contain less than a full set
I made claims that one can not collect them all from Walmart boxes as they contain less than a full set
I said a collector couldn't know this based on readily available info from SI nor any info provide at the point of sale
I presented Partrick's distribution chart in my email to them.

He has claimed:  "Every one of your claims is completely without merit. "

"Every Wacky Package Mini shown on our check list is available at retail. Not all styles are available in all packages or all stores, but a dutiful collector can find them all, and without as much drama as you seem to like to generate for yourself. The distribution of our product is consistent with common and typical distribution of similar products. We are not at all misleading nor are we fraudulent in any manner.
We run a very forthright business, and have zero concern about your threats to the BBB, State Attorney, or any other regulatory office. If you file any false or malicious claims, as you threaten, we will respond with appropriate legal response. We can easily support our production and distribution methods, and demonstrate that your claims are without merit. In fact, your claims are libelous, and we will protect the good name of our company against any claims to the contrary.  This includes any notices for public review making continued false claims and accusations.

I strongly suggest that immediately cease your baseless claims and harassment. I also suggest you cease contacting our company."

It's very difficult to prove fraud.  There are just so many loopholes in the language, like Bill Clinton's argument on the definition of the word "is."

 

anything
