I am not even in to minecraft, but I had to have one of the burning zombies from series three. It reminds me of old monster game 8-bit nintendo sprites.

I picked up that one, the Ghast and Skeleton Horse for myself too from series 3. I have about a dozen figures from the three series and I'm not into the game either, other than I like the music and I appreciate that it's a good game for kids to play.

My daughter is going to flip. Her birthday is on Saturday, too, so that works out perfect.

 

You should have told me this a week ago! I could have sent out that package a little early as a birthday present!

God dangit.

This toyline just expanded into all the expected territory.  Gotta give it to Mattel for getting people hooked with 3 series of figures before hitting us with the seemingly obligatory playsets.

 

First up is the carry-case / playset.   Props for being both.

 

One half of the item is a display and the other half is a playset.  Concerning the display, it holds 32 figures under plastic. All 16 from Series 1 and all 16 from Series 2 fit perfectly.

 

The other side is a "mine" play area.   It is six levels high and three levels deep.  The left side will hold a maximum of 16 figures and is rather well designed.  The right side sucks.  It will hold 14 figures.  The design on this half is weak because they inexplicably left multiple doubled vertical spaces and even one triple space. The only way to utilize this space is to stack a figure directly on top of another figure.  Why they didn't notice these little flaws, we will never know.

 

Anyway, the thing folds together into a cube.  I love the use of squared numbers in displays, and both squares and cubes as design elements. As far as any company-designed display case and/or playset goes, I think this is probably the best I have ever seen.  (Again, the right side of the terrain could have been a lot better though.) 

 

Retail is about $24-30.

Welcome to the newest toytrend: 

 

Figures marketed specifically for you and your kids to make stop-motion videos. 

 

Genius. 

 

Stikbots are doing it, and now Minecraft Minis are doing it.  I expect more toylines will follow. 

 

In this case, the "free app" gimmick is not just a game.  It is a way for you to create and upload content. 

 

It is presumed (as I think it should be) that you and your kids have a smartphone/tablet, a computer, an internet connection, ties to social media, a desire to create with their trademarked characters, and a desire to share those creations.

 

It really is genius. 

 

Lego is already way behind at marketing this gimmick since people have been making stop-motion Lego videos for decades.

 

But here is the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator playset:

 

You get a backdrop, 15 props, instructions to get the app ("required" to make the videos), and of course the tried-and-true gimmick of including exclusive figures!

 

And notice that the formerly static one-piece Steve ,now has interchangeable accessories! 

 

Ready for your directorial debut!

 

Price $35-40. 

 

Just think, the Steven Spielberg of 2040 will have found his love for making movies with this playset!

AliExpress delivering some quality shit as always:

And for those of you wanting the bigger figures, but not wanting to pay full retail:

http://www.aliexpres...1444_5,201409_4


A vendor at a flea market had a bunch of Minecraft figures in Chinese baggies for $4 a pop today, so I knew they had to be dirt cheap somewhere online. My daughter bought a creeper and the joints are a little loose but it otherwise looks and feels what I think that it should. (We don't own any of the actual legit stuff from the stores.)

Aliexpress does not take Paypal? WTF

 

IF you can find an ebay link to the bootleg minis, I would get them for sure.

Couldn't manage a better pic of this for some reason, but here is a preview of the S4 Obsidian series mini figures. Says they will be released in 2015. The S3 three packs still haven't hit stores in my area yet.

Found a new box of the series 4 blind boxes at Target today and picked up 2 each of the exclusives to put in my kids' Christmas stockings. Good timing with Target having 20% off on toys through today. Picked up a few extra boxes trying to get the ones that I like, and got lucky with my 3 favorites from the series. I also want the pumpkin helmet Skeleton.

 

Codes on these end with:

C4 Screaming Enderman

D4 Sneaking Creeper

E4 Zombie at Door

1. If anyone still needs Series 1 the Grass Series -- they are at Big Lots right now.  Same price as most other places, $4 each.

 

2. The SDCC Gold Creepers are now going for $30+ on ebay, so holy shit to that.

 

3. I have yet to see S4 in any store either.  But whatever, no rush.

 

4. Target now has the display cube that comes with 10 figures.  None of them are exclusive as far as I can tell.  They may be gone -- I know it was part of their Black Friday deals -- but probably worth a look.  They were/are $40.  The packaging also has a checklist with images of all figures in S1-S4.

I finally found S4 at Fred Meyer yesterday, but more notable were the mid-aisle tower-style cardboard displays that are designed to look like a hillside in the game or whatnot, with multiple little windows to pull the blind boxes out as though they're blocks in the game. The ones I saw had at least S3&S4 mixed together too, might have even had S1&S2 (I didn't crouch down to see the ones on the lower tiers. Have to give props to Mattel for the cool idea.

Super disappointed to discover that the door, the cage, and the rocks are not accessories, but rather glued to the figures.  LAME.  I boiled them up to see if there was any hope of removing them.

 

The rocks and the creeper are both rubber.  You could basically salvage the rocks if you were willing to damage the creeper. 

 

The zombie is rubber and the door is hard plastic.  You could free the door if you were willing to destroy the zombie.  He is glued at the feet and the nose -- no hope of separation and keeping him intact. 

 

The cage is hard plastic.  Boiling did not separate the glue at all.  I do not see a way of opening it without destroying it.  Of course, the spider is loose inside the cage  You could destroy the cage and have a mint flaming spider if you really wanted.

The zombie at door is just the zombie from series 1. I like that the door is stuck to him instead of trying to display him with it as a separate accessory. Having the creeper separate from the blocks would have been cool, but I still like it the way it is.

 

I finally found some series 3 three-packs at Toys R Us this week, and they have 20% off Minecraft stuff right now. I wish the packs for series 4 would hit stores before Christmas, but I doubt it.

I thought the zombie would be holding the door. It looks like his hands would attach into it, so there would be no trouble displaying it or getting it to stand -- plus, then you could put any other baddie behind the door.  Or in the cage.  Or creeping from behind the rocks. 

 

But what am I talking about?  Then they couldn't sell you a dozen more variants.  Golem with door. Pigman with door.  Etc. 

 

Also -- super lame -- they did not paint the stripes on the tabby cat!

 

Go to Walgreens for S4.  I should have mentioned that above.  Walgreens: The Pharmacy America Trusts for Toys.

Do you remember the Walgreens price on the 3-packs? Blind boxes at a Walgreens in my area were $5.50 compared to $3.50 at Target.
