Did anyone win their Facebook contest?
Looks like they only responded to 3 people unless I'm missing something.

I think they are handling the contest like they handled the distribution of the 2 pieces. Fraudulently.

They are also running the same raffle on Instagram.  You can enter both. No win on my end.

Thanks, I didn't know about Instagram. 
There has to be a better way to distribute these.

Greetings.
This is my first real post of any merit.
I have been bitten by the wacky package minis bug and I started to buy some Thursday of last week.
Iím about 8 away at the moment. Maybe less today I was able to open these thanks to tips and tricks on this forum.

If there are any tips on Burden and/or Crust Iím very interested.
I know ebayer and minute mud are ghosts.
I found some double packs. No gadzooka showing but Iím hopeful itís in one of them.

Soon I begin the task of figuring out what stickers I have.

And hopefully scoring a bunch of the larger stickers to use in my display.

Thanks for the good info so far folks.

Best of luck in the mini hunt. The stickers are cool. You have to decide if you want the redline versions as well as the blackline versions. Also, There are ten sticker titles that do not have corresponding minis. Check out the master list.

Likely gonna try just to get one of each product. And not worry too much about red lines or rich color.
Master list is really useful.

Have you seen the master list for Series 2? That might be just as useful.

I have. It seems other than the black and gold chase series 2 is easier to finish just have to have solid luck at Walmart and Amazon.

I am new to the Minis ... Sc(o)t sent me a bunch just because he's a nice guy. Was thrilled to see a few of my concepts were included. Kraken of the Sea, Rice Krispbees, Milk Drone, Skimpy (reboot), Slacker Jack, Silverfish. They did a decent job with these things, but from what I'm gathering they made it impossible to collect? Of course they did. Oooo, and there are stickers, too?

Nice score. I purchased a full case of twin packs when they came out. I pulled a crust from one of the cups.  I think I got three gadzookas from the case.
No one one knew at the time they would not resurface.

If you knew what was the topper on the crust that would be amazing.

These as best I can tell werenít randomized . And how many was in a case?
Presume your three gadzookas was 1 topper and 2 mystery?

No info on the crust Topper. 12 2 packs per case.  I believe it was one Gad as topper and two as mystery.

Solid info. Now to find some intel on the milk jug and I should be at only missing the 2 insane commons. Assuming I can get the crust which is totally possible I think. I have a bunch of 2 pack minis I didnít open because they werenít rectangular.

SCAM ARTISTS.. So they did the final "Giveaway" of eBayer and Minute Mud... Was this to cover for them never releasing these two in circulation? Total scam.

I want my money back for the hundreds of dollars I spent on trying to find them. Does anyone have any info on the class action lawsuit? I want to participate.

some good news for once, I thought the Attorney General case was dead but a Supervisor from AG will be contacting me soon so it seems this got escalated perhaps others finally filed similar complaints.  AG office moves slowly so no timetable on this yet.  will keep everyone posted.

So look at this failure.




Those donít look like the two packs.
Just two cups bagged together
Letís take a closer look


Two Walmart cups. Bagged up like they are the 2 packs.

Returning these. All of them.

I certainly don't defend Super Impulse's way of marketing these, but I understand the need to combat collectors who build lists of what cups have what desirable minis, then go and buy sight unseen online and return the ones that won't have something they want.  On a side note Bob, yours is a different story; you didn't get what was advertised as two-packs. 

I suppose one way to combat this would be to truly have them randomly inserted into the cups so there were no useful lists.  Then it would be like the good old days of two stickers and one checklist in a pack, and you got what you bought.  You had to keep buying until you got that Bandache, never knowing until years later that it was short printed - but not on purpose. 

I don't know if it's more expensive to randomize the cups rather than the way they are inserted in patterns now, but I imagine it must be or someone would have done a better job of it.  Maybe it's all a conspiracy.  There seems to be a lot of talk about that going around lately.

So a competing product called mini brands do a fairly good job of making money while also keeping fans semi happy. They do fairly randomized blind balls with 5 items in each and a checklist.

Itís hard to cheat at them. Date codes give some idea if you can find certain selections of items. But not as precise as knowing that all 0820 5200w putrid cups have a, b, c, d  and x sticker.

I'd never heard of them, so I checked them out online.  It looks like they would've done a much better job of making the Wacky Packages minis than Super Insult.  They even have shelves and check out counters - maybe Ernie should look into those for his daughters instead.  If they weren't so expensive, I'd show them to my 3-year old granddaughter.  She'd love them, but she's a little young for small pieces like that.

I think I may have every series 1 -16 title in peeled form on magnets.  I had this vision that I would put magnet strips all around my basement for this but it never cam to fruition.  It took a long time to gather this.  The box they sit in weighs like 50 pounds!

My daughters raided my Super insult collection as I had no interest in completing it once I realized it couldn't be completed.  They love some of the titles.  Like you said, they easily could have acknowledged their error, made good on it immediately and kept collectors in good graces and this really could have taken off but the president clearly has too big an ego to admit he was wrong.  He is a multi millionaire so I am sure he doesn't much care.

Maybe the two missing ones are out there in the most recently produced twin packs?
So I finally got a hold of some more of the actual twin packs.
Imagine my surprise.
They have new production dates and no red border stickers.

Outer box had 1020 date


Inner cup has 0820 date


I have opened up 3 two packs. And same toppers have same stickers. But of three I opened of same topper was two different assortments inside there. With pack outs I havenít ever seen.

I donít think itís fully random. Just that there is a few variants for each topper.

I also took a video of opening each and will add on as soon as I have a good way to do so. These came packaged in Series 2 envelopes raising doubt to their claim these were released into stores in series 1... as if more doubt was needed.











Here is a link to my post on one of the WP Facebook pages that includes the opening videos,

Any chance you could take a photo of the minute mud next to say the hungry jerk pucks?  And I donít think there is anything similar to the ebayer.

Congrats on the win. Thatís amazing
