My two local Dollar Trees recently each had a single gravity feed box of 4-pack Series 1 Minikins.  I took my share from both and they are currently gone.  Both have shown no signs of replenishment.  Anyone else notice these 4-packs on the cheap at $Tree?  I was stunned.  Hoping for refills or better yet Series 2 arrivals.  I have checked a few other $Trees outside my hometown and found none.  So I don't know if it was a local thing where a department store wanted them out of their storage space and made a deal with $Tree or what.  I am interested to see if this has occurred elsewhere.

I wish we'd get these over here, at any store, never mind discount stores. Such awesome little figures.

I hit 2 today and didn't find any.

 

I had high hopes for the one I went to because they used to have the 4 packs of cards a few series back.

 

There is one more I need to check out that may have them. Its the only one that had a box of crashlings in a few months back.

I was there again the other day.  Gravity feeder still empty.  Next time I am going to ask if they have more in storage that may be brought out.

The box says 2 figures but they were actually the 4 packs (1 visible painted/3 blind).

Just went to Dollar Tree and found the box that Phantomeye posted.

Bought my 2 year-old some. She's going crazy over her new "babies!" (She got Stan Alive and Michelle Muck.)

Dude I've been to 5 more today...That about exhausts the stores near me in 100 mile radius.

And did you take note of what figs came with each painted figure???
No notes???
How many packs??? How many yellow???
Any black?!
There's method to madness!

Jackpot!

Bought all 13 packs they had!

The exposed painted figures had lots of doubles so I'm nervous. I'll post updates when I open later

Left most figure in each set of 4 was exposed.
Hope this helps. The bags I got don't even advertise black figures.
Worth it at a quarter per fig though

for what its worth, none of the bags ever advertised black figures inside them. several people have been pulling blacks, so you do have a shot at a black in the dollar tree packs for sure.

Thanks for the pic.
You can see that a number of the packs had the same figs in them just different color ways.
So if you need a certain color fig you can find them by looking for a certain visible fig
