So I remember seeing reddit had a redditgifts exchange for these. At the time I ignored it (I only do the + exchanges) but I got to googling random stuff the other night and I think I might wanna get into this.

Unfortunately (well, maybe fortunately) I don't have any place nearby that sells these so I'll need to buy them online. I was thinking it'd be fun to buy one every other week or something as a small reward to myself. I enjoy collecting stuff, but I tend to get out of hand with it sometimes :lol:

Do any of you guys buy these? Which series' are your favorites? I'm into graff and street art and stuff, so a lot of these seem to really follow the styles of stuff I like.

Also, where do you buy from online? I'd like somewhere with free shipping if possible. Spending $5 out of my check to treat myself to a little surprise sounds like fun.



Edit: Looks like I found some on ebay for $10, not $5...but ah, that equals $5 per week anyway. Theres some futurama ones I think I'd like to start with...

I unfortunately buy into these. Usually for series that I like. Futurama, Disney stuff, Nintendo stuff and Transformers/GI Joe. I have 2 Bender keychains and a Sal for my troubles. No Zoidberg for this guy.

The Ninten'Dohs are cool.

I'm a sucker for blind bags and boxes. I've been buying the Disney Mystery Minis and have had good luck so far except for ONE double.

At my local comic book store, when you buy a blind box and don't like what you get, you can trade it for one on display.

Thats an awesome policy *__* I wish I lived close to a good store. My nearest one is a 80 minute round trip :cry:

I buy lots and lots of LEGO Minifigures. I've probably spent over $150 just on them alone.
If the TMNT bags come to the US I will buy them like crazy.

Which TMNT bags? I've gotten the Mash'em blind bags at Target and Wallgreens already.

Little bags that Playmates made. They have mini figures in them:

The only one I really like is the foot soldier...

I love blindbags. Often buy the LEGO minifig series, also a huge fan of the Portal Turrent blind packs and re-ment food.

Also have a few of the WST Transformers figures

My favorite blind bag/box figures would have to be the Futurama mini vinyls from Kidrobot. Love the show very much and I was fortunate to pick up Zoidberg, Fry and Bender who happen to be my favorite 3 characters from the show. Kinda pricy but they also make other figures from other shows like South Park/Simpsons/Family Guy etc.

I picked up one of the Walking Dead blind boxes at Target on the fly on Halloween.

Not bad, I got the Screwdriver-in-the-eye Zombie. The sculpt is neat, I'm looking forward to the Horror Movie blind Boxes that'll be a similar series.

I found some new ones: Hobbit Chibis. I got some Avengers ones, so I got a pack. THEY ARE SO AWESOME AND CUTE. I got Gandalf, Bombur, and Kili.

Man, today was a blind box day. Two Zelda blind balls, and two Funko Mystery Mini Disney figures.

Got Mom today...

She's my least favorite and I get her second box I buy (first was Nibbler).

Ah well, if I wanna complete my set I'll need her, right?...

Will be buying more, but my PS4 broke me this (and next) week.

^ That's awesome! If you're trying to complete the whole set, I wish you the best of luck. Robot Devil is gonna be a doozy to get, unless luck is on your side. I'm also on the same boat as you, I also have a PS4 preorder which my fiancée wasn't too happy about me preordering.

Which Disney figures did you get? So far my collection consists of:

2 Open mouthed Mickeys
1 Arms raised Malefecient
1 Standing, eyes closed Pooh
1 Eyes closed hula Stitch.

Eyes closed Pooh standing, and Angry Mike.

I really want to get a Stitch.

I occasionally will buy Transformers Kre-O Blindbagged minifigures. They're the LEGO Transformers we never got.

Since I posted this I've gone a bit crazy with these lol. I bought a case of 2013 dunnys and the big hypnotoad >_< got a few Simpsons boxes too.

Definitely plan on buying a case of the evolved Dunnys next time I get some cash on hand too.

I love those guys!
Like that Hasbro puts little ID numbers on the bags, so even if you don't have a list of who's who you can still avoid getting doubles (or army build if you do have a list!)

Cheers,
Doug

I friend just passed me the link for this project too.
650 participants is good enough for me, so I may join.
What do you guys think?
