    Infinity War

    I’ve stopped looking beyond stores in my daily driving radius until I see these show up a little more wide spread. Coming up with nothing fast.

    Infinity War

    I’ve seen those awful full set listings as well. You’ve got the right idea keeping eyes on eBay though for a decent indicator of when and how thoroughly these hit stores.

    They probably weren’t made aware of his actual screen time at the time these were planned/solicited. I mean in the trailer they had him placed in Wakanda charging with the other heroes which was obviously a red herring. wouldve been happier with him if they gave him that surprised/scared look he had after a certain someone did something to him.

    Again I make my semi-annual plea... if you find the latest wave at Walgreens, please tell us the state and at least the approximate city. This helps other people by letting us know if the distribution is occurring anywhere close to where we live and shop. “Found these near me” or “found these at two of my stores” isn’t going to help anybody else out.

    Sounds like DST benefited from some good timing. TRU must not have taken delivery on this wave just yet. In my mind they were in containers or trucks and probably days away from delivery when the liquidation news broke. A lot of vendors are trying like hell to get TRU to return any unopened warehouse stock instead of being allowed to ship it to their stores to liquidate it. TRU owes vendors a whole lot of money. And those vendors know there’s a slim chance they’ll see any payout when the liquidations are over and the bankruptcy is settled, so they want their shit back. DST must’ve said screw it, pull them back, we’ll have a better chance of getting money for these elsewhere. Guessing TRU already owes them a boatload even without this shipment arriving. Anyway, I ordered from Luke.

    With the movie 6 weeks out I don’t think there’s any doubt TRU already took delivery on their stock from DST. The question is whether they started distributing that stock regionally or not. If they have there’s still a shot they push that stock out to stores and liquidate it themselves as they clear out the regional distribution centers. If they haven’t it’s more likely they just liquidate the entire lot to a wholesaler and we’ll see them show up in the TJ Maxx, 5 Below or Dollar General type stores. With the chaos of the last few weeks who knows where they’re at.

    eBay says no TRU sets are out yet. I found the Walgreens set today in central MA.

    TRU 25

    Nothing in Massachusetts yet. Although the BP wave is around. And wave 24 restocks. Time now for my semi-annual pet peeve rant... if you find these please tell us which state at least. “Found these at my local TRU” helps no one.

    Black Panther Movie Minimates

    Found the Walgreens and tru sets today in south east Massachusetts. Also found the newest Walgreens animated wave. No signs of TRU 25.

    tru wave 24

    Thank you so much for the heads up. Glad to not have to chase these anymore. Pro tip: pick up a couple extra sets of mini mates to get your order to $30 and one of them will essentially be free because then the free shipping and kicks in

    tru wave 24

    Anyone in New England come across these? (If so, where?) Getting a bit tired of the hunt for these. So much Wolvie wave still out there everywhere. Some stores got Ragnarok, some got Homecoming restocks, none have received TRU24 though.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Any sign of the TRU sets yet? Saw the Legends ragnarok stuff there but no sign of the ‘mates.

    Toys R Us closing all 800+ US stores

    ...and given their debt to profit ratio it looks rather bleak for them. We could be losing one of the biggest backers of minimates on the retail level. ?

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Took me half a dozen stores but I tracked down wave 6 today, saw just one full set at a store outside of Boston, MA. Picked up 3/4 sets. Left spidey / IF because as someone already mentioned the paint on spideys chest was rough, to put it mildly, and I'm not impressed by the looks of that IF.

    NYCC exclusive Contest of Champions 'mates

    Thanks Zach! Got a friend attending multiple days, hoping he can grab them both for me if they aren't for sale.
