Alright everyone lets change the direction of my whining thread into something more productive. Please post the contents of your Mutant Mania packs taking special note as to what figure(s) were visible so that we can all have more success collecting these guys.
Alright guys here's the deal. I love, Love, LOVE mutant mania. I have been going to TRU every Saturday to buy them since they came out.
Wk1: I bought 6x 4 packs and 2x single cans. Great Pulls, 1 double.
Wk2: went to different location that carried the 8 packs. Bought 6X 8 Packs and 2X Single cans. A few more doubles but still lots of excitement over opening and seeing all the new figures.
WK3: 6X 8 Packs, Battle Arena, 2X Single cans. Out of 50 figures from the 8 packs and singles, I ended up with only 13 that I needed and 47 doubles!!! (not counting 2 that come with the arena) Bummer...
Wk4: 7x 8 packs. Out of 56 figures, I get 2 that are not doubles!!! TWO!!! Excitement over the franchise drops to zero. What a waste of money...
I mean seriously how can they take advantage of their customers like that!?!? I get the fact that its a blind box, random-ish series which is part of the excitement, I get that you will get doubles, and I am good with that. However, I am not good with Blatantly packing their "Random" blind packs with such a massive bias towards pulling doubles. I get that they make money that way by making you have to buy more packs. But when buying more packs goes from excitement to anger and frustration; then what is the point? I think I am done at this point. I mean why beat my head against a wall and waste money just to get no enjoyment and no value for the money spent? If they were decent about it they would have my business as long as they kept doing things right; but now I am done. So because of blatant greed; they lose cash flow. It's just so disappointing... So now instead of supporting the franchise with my money, I am forced to resort to trading for my missing figures.
Out of 120 figures, not counting exclusives and the impossible to get limited edition figures. I currently have 71 unique figures. That's 59% of the collection. Nowhere near a complete set.
My set looks like this:
Common 31/49; 63%
Rare 21/31; 68%
Ultra Rare 11/24; 46%
Special editions 8/16; 50% (I count these because there is one guaranteed per 8 pack.)
Anyway, I just needed to vent a little I guess. It's just so disappointing to wait all week for something just to have it be such a huge let down.
On another note I am probably going to catalog what I have and start a trade thread if anyone is interested.
