Say what now? 

Over in the SDCC 2018 thread Zach acknowledged the issues Walgreens has had with all waves sharing a SKU and seemed to imply that they are working on getting mates available on the website. 

That said it sounds like it may also take time as Walgreens just bought rite aid stores and is working on improving their website.

Are we compiling "Help Lists" for Animated & Infinity War?

I'd like to get on them, please.

Been thinking a new thread for that may be in order?

Keep a separate list of what people have and what people are looking for?

I just came here to suggest something similar... maybe changing the name of this thread from "animated mates" to "Walgreen mates" since we now have animated, movie, and comic waves.

Secured the Collector/Enchantress/Kraven/Hobgoblin wave at a Walgreens nearest to my place. I actually gave up on finding these. It was the just the right place at the right time.

To all Floridians, they're out there! :D

October. But online may be an option

Cool! Thanks DSTZach. I really hope by then the walgreens has got everything fixed or as close to fixed to keep minimates goin for a long time! 😁

Just got this message from a friend of mine:

"I found a new set of mini mates at Walgreens this morn. Already sold 2 for more than double i paid

Starlord/collector spider/kraven enchantress/skurge hobgoblin/black spider"

Why are people paying so much for these?  Now we have people that aren't even Minimates collectors scalping these things.  😕

That's frustrating. And it's not like Walgreens cares so long as they make a sale. Hurray, capitalism.

Hopefully board members can find some and start redistributing the wealth before supplies run out.

Also, according to Instagram the line isn’t supposed to be out until next week on the 1st. Whoopsie.

Why on earth is there a street date of August 1st on these? Was the lesson not learned before?

Because I have a 20% off entire purchase coupon that expires on July 31st, that's why. 😡

Where did you get one of those?

I picked up a couple cans of Arizona iced tea (2 for $1!) and it printed at the end of my receipt. Glad I took notice just in case one of my stores restocks within the next week.

Well damn now I need to pay attention to receipts?!?

Interesting.  Normally there a coupon prints out of a completely different printer near the register.  I will have to start looking at my receipts!

I'll double check but I'm pretty sure it was barely attached to the receipt. I do remember separating it. Then again I'm old. Sometimes lint gets in your eyes and creates ghoulish shapes...

Has anyone had any luck finding the newest wave recently? I’ve searched about a dozen or so Walgreens within 30 miles of my home and haven’t found anything

Right?

Manufacturers and retailers should never underestimate the importance of momentum, especially when it comes to catering to collectors.

So, I just ran by the closest Walgreens to my house, the items worth noting are:

2 Nighthawk packs

1 Man-Thing pack

the rest are Ragnarok and the first IW wave. 

If you need any of that, let me know. I’m willing to help for cost plus shipping.

I have hope in finding the newest wave! I finally found one Enchantress/Skurge set. It was literally the only Minimate set on the shelf. So here’s hoping they restock with the newest wave and not older sets

FYI. I went by one of the many Walgreens I have been searching for the new waves last week and talked to one of the workers there. They only had two packs on the pegs (old peg warmers) and none in the back but they saw that the warehouse had Minimates in stock so they ordered them for me and said they would be in this Friday. I swung by on my way home from work and both wave 8 & 9 were on the pegs so I was finally able to get the two sets I was after and one my kids were after (they just recently caught the minimate bug & I have been guilty of enabling them). I can try to swing by tomorrow and pick up the others to help people out if they are still there.

Anyway I just wanted to say it sound like 8 & 9 are in the warehouses you just might need to ask your store to order them.

Now if only I could find IW wave 2. I have to hunt down two sets of those one for me and one for my kids. IW is what sucked them in although now they really want more comic versions as well. According to them you can mix and match any of the pieces except mixing movie figures with comic figures. Their biggest beef though is that the good guys outnumber the villains (not just in Minimates it’s across the board with toys).

Not sure what folks are still looking for, but I found several wasp/modok sets, along with black panther/Whitney frost, spidey/screwball, and spider Gwen/jackal. There may be some other IW that I didn’t catch. If any of those are of interest, happy to pick them up for cost/shipping, just pm me. They were $8.50 each (in NYC so I think a little more expensive).

does anyone else use the walgreens app? i used to be able to get an idea of when a store would restock, but now when i do the search store feature, it tells me there's nothing around. is this an common issue?
