I am wondering if we are going to be seeing 4-packs at Walgreens instead of 2-packs in the future. I would be completely fine with that. I am still patiently awaiting for the X-Men animated minimmates. Hopefully they show up soon. I sure hope that we see numerous packs from those cartoons. It would be the perfect opportunity to get out the Jim Lee era X-Men again.

The X-Men Animated packs will not be at Walgreens. We are looking for a new home for them. Once we do, hopefully they will be easier for people to get than Walgreens sets. 

So, does this mean Walgreens is ending Minimates? They seem to be disappearing from shelves, as in, multiple pegs of mates that have been there for over a year are suddenly almost entirely gone....

Try out Gamestop again? Would very much appreciate the ease of getting them that way 😅

Hopefully we will be able to order them online. I am really looking forward to X-Men animated so hopefully they get a new home soon.

Any update on the Logan & Laura 2 pack? Thanks!

Damn. Is Walgreens done?

 

Sounds like it. Too bad for the line but it was definitely a pain trying to get some of the Walgreens exclusives. Hopefully someone picks them up. Maybe Joe and Transformers will help invigorate minimates and they make it through this.

Not sure about others, but I always see Minimates at Walgreens.  The problem is that the popular ones folks seem to want are never around.  Not sure if they just get gobbled up more quickly, or never make it out to the floor because the older ones are taking up the space.

When searching for minimates at all my nearby Walgreens I started getting the new Marvel Lego minifigures. Went to Walgreens website and sure enough, they have listings for which stores have lego minifigures. I know Gamestop has this tracking low jack system with Funkos and other products, or like Target.com will do the same thing, even listing the Aisle number. 

Just imagine all the time saved if Walgreens did this with minimates. Or just sold them on their website like that one Marvel wave (wave 26).

We are looking at online for some,  other retailers for others. That includes Logan and Deadpool.

Could the Deadpool and Logan sets be sent  to Luke's so he can get them into peoples hands?

I believe the plan is to make them orderable by retailers like Luke, but I will keep everyone posted. 

So when you say this, do you mean all minimates will possibly go this way for the foreseeable future?
