These do not seem to be available in the US at all.  

Ok - So I jut did a bit of googling and it turns out that anko is K Mart's in house brand.
I also found out that it does not exist in America because K Mart Australia and K Mart Us are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COMAPNIES 🤯

Apparently Australian parent company Westfarmers had a license agreement with the parent company of the US's K Mart to use the name until 2017, at which point they bought the name outright for use within Australia. The two K Marts have completely different parent companies and so despite the name, there is no link between them. 

TL:DR - this product doesn't look like its available in K Mart US. So my previous post appears to just be for my Australian plastic crack addicts. Sorry folks

Apologies if this is not the best place for it, but happy for a mod to move it as needed.I found these display stands that I thought might work well for minimates.
Anko seems to be the in house discount brand in KMart here, so not sure if it'll exist in the US or UK.

They're designed for lego-style mini figures. Each display has three shelves with a sliding clear plastic window on the front. The shelves each have 4 little 'lego' plates in them to peg peg mini figures on to, but they're removable if you wanna put minimates in there instead.
The case retails for $20.00 here, so I imagine it'd be about $10 if available in the US.

I'm based in Canberra. It's the nation's capital, but isn't very well known outside of Australia. LOL

I’m familiar! I lived in Sydney as a kid and my family migrated back in the 2000s. I’m impressed you find Minimates there! I usually go back for Christmas every year and have to bring them to my collector friends and nephews.  Would you mind taking a photo of a mate in there so I can see size? Please and thanks.

Of you have a look at the third picture, there's a sneaky little Cable-pool minimate in the middle row on the far right (next to Phoenix) for size comparison.

.... YOU ARE A GENIUS! Thank you. Now ordered and have to think about how/when I'm going to get them back to the states.
