Do Vinimates have any articulation?

The neck is ball-jointed.

Found the Hot Topic wave at the Danbury Fair Mall in CT. Got Mummy Boy and Behemoth for $4.25 total, through some odd combination of Buy Any NBX Item and get the second for $1 and maybe an unadvertised 50% off sale? Receipt accounting is confusing. Definitely left a Mummy Boy, not sure about Behemoth or Elf.

Does anyone need help with the last wave of blind bags?

Yes, I need the Behemoth and mummy boy still. I would take another elf too if you find one.

Four are TRU exclusive (Musician 1 + 2, Igor + GID Fink), four are specialty exclusive (Musician 3 + Sea Gal, Devil + Corpse Boy), two are shared (Snowman and GID Oogie), and one is unassigned (GID PJ Jack).

Nice wave, hope they arn't too hard to get I have really been enjoying the NBX mates. The only odd thing in my opinion is that you have gone green and not white for GITD ooggie boogie

Well, he glows green in the movie, and while I'd like to see the toy a bright green (like Speed Force Hulk), the translucent plastic supposedly makes them glow BRIGHTER, so I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

And they will be blister two-packs, so hopefully that makes them easier to acquire at specialty.

Will Hot Topic be taking more of these?

Zach, can you please clarify Wave 4?  BBTS still has the blind bags up for pre-order and they also have 2-packs sets for preorder, but there are only 3 2-packs in the set.  Is that correct?

The blind bags were cancelled. It looks like they may have only been OFFICIALLY cancelled this week, but they have been cancelled for a while now. Hopefully that info will get out to retailers quickly.

The Series 4 two-packs are only three two-packs, yes. But, there are two exclusive two-packs at TRU, instead of one, so the net number of different figures is the same. Seven new characters between the two.

It's cool to hear that the blind bags are done, at least with NBX. I ended up with so many extras. But I was able to make a few different Jacks with all of the extras, so that was nice. Plus an upside down printed face on Pajama Jack.

From the C2E2 panel:

Regular wave:

TRU:

It was mentioned that Igor would be a glow version at TRU. This is strange since we haven't gotten a regular Igor yet. Not sure if this was a mistake or if we will be getting regular Igor later (or maybe at Hot Topic with the glow Pajama Jack)?

Perhaps Igor was meant for a Hot Topic blind bag wave that may or may not happen?

Anyone willing to sell a GITD Reindeer or Torn Oogie Boogie?

Do you still need a GITD Reindeer, would you trade?
