  1. Ah well that makes sense why I never saw them! D'oh! I must have missed that somehow. At least I can stop looking for Spot now, lol. I've never had any luck finding Minimates on Walgreens website, so I'm sure I never bothered to look. I saw Luke had decent-ish deals on some. I still like the idea of actually being able to go into a Walgreens and finding them, though. Maybe I'll hold out a little longer for the Ghost Rider, there was such a mix of figures it's certainly possible one may show up otherwise I guess it's secondary market.
  2. Hopefully this is the right place for this. A couple years ago I went pretty crazy into Minimates, I was a late starter and not the type to complete series or groups or anything, just bought stuff that I liked, some junk for customs, etc. Anyway, at the time I spent a fair amount on Minimates. A lot of it is still in boxes, but I digress... Over time I kinda lost the passion for it. I'm not a huge Marvel guy (nothing against Marvel, I like them and the Mates but it's not a huge thing for me) and so I mostly collected TMNT, Aliens, Predator and the oddball stuff, Beetlejuice, Elf, etc. I was happy as a clam when the Classic TMNT was set to come out and I kinda stopped buying mates in anticipation of spending a few hundred dollars on all the new TMNT mates I was gonna get. Yeah, well, we know how that went. Then I was super stoked about Bruce Lee mates, and then, well, you know how that went. Anyway, slowly I lost interest. Again, with Minimates sort of just becoming a Marvel thing, I bought less and less. Picked up some Spidey stuff here or there, but it fell to the back of the list. I'd still look on occasion at Walgreens but some of the characters I didn't know or were outfits I didn't care for, etc. Anyway this is a POSITIVE post... Point is, I recently decided to make some new customs. Which led to me needing a few different figures, some different pieces, buying some stuff. Then I fell down the damn hole again. I went from buying stuff for my customs to, oh hey, I'd like a set of those, and hey I can get a few of those for a good price and hell I never even knew they made those but that's cool... And over the last few weeks I've dropped a couple hundred bucks on Minimates. So what's the point of this post? Just to say that I love Minimates and I hope things continue to grow. It's a line you can kinda fall away from and rediscover and waste lots of your paycheck on.
  3. Hit every Walgreens in town today trying to find Wave 10 Ghost Rider set, but to no avail. The new Black Widow movie mates are everywhere and a hodgepodge of other stuff, but I've never found the Spot wave or much of 6, 7 and 8. It's frustrating.
  4. Happy belated recycled birthday!
  5. Very curious about the Sci-fi set! pics please when you get them!
  6. I heard these characters make Discovery... So I'm not shocked to hear they are doing a spinoff that's basically going to be classic Star Trek.
  7. I need some possible help again and since people were so kind in the Aliens thread, thought I might chime in here. Anyone know if any other figures have Carl's hair from Wave 6 Carl? Carl who came with the Flaming zombie. The hair without the hat!
  8. Lotta cool stuff there that could possibly be used. I'm curious too haha.
  9. Thanks for the help guys! This place is the best!
  10. Cheers! According to the Minimates Database, it's a similar hair piece, but not the same one. Unless I'm looking at something wrong. Might work for my purposes though.
