Looks like the Popeye one is only in the 12-pack...

I have little hopes that Target picks these up again, nor do I have any faith that we'll ever see the Monsters or Aliens lines.

Cool to see the insert, thanks for sharing. Someone said something about Walgreens before, so maybe these will show up there.

I think my Target is done with them because I don't see any on clearance any more. Target still had a lot left last weekend. TRU on the other hand still has a bunch, and the price is at its original cost.

At every Walgreens near me where I saw them, they sold out very quickly. I never saw them reach clearance at a Walgreens around here. So they may have had success with it overall, just not in certain locations.

Never even saw them at Walgreens... but Walgreens does seem to be the place to find the "obscure" blind bag toys. It's the only place I have found Kre-O TF Microchangers.

Walgreens clearanced them, as they were intended as "seasonal".
I haven't seen a Walgreens carry any 3-packs or 12-packs yet, though... I only ever saw the single packs on sale there.

After the Easter push last year, they got rid of all of their single-packed "Easter Basket Stuffers".

I saw this post from George on OT:

Hearing series 5 may not make it to stores. Those leaked images were removed, and no word on whether it will make it to stores now.

I pre-ordered series 5 12-packs, 3-packs, and the carrying case sets on Entertainment Earth after reading that. I've got 3 sets for me and my two kids covered as long as EE gets them. I'm not saying everyone should pre-order from EE now, but figured I would pass along the info.

Was super stoked to walk into the aisle with S.L.U.G.s at TRU and see they'd been restocked and even got 2 additional pegs devoted to them.......all of series 3. Damn you for getting my hopes up TRU, damn you.
