Gamestop Exclusive X-Men mystery minis?

Great things come in mini packages, but which great thing will it be. It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Went to Books-a-Million last night and saw that they had more X-Men Minis! Felt the boxes (which were scattered all over the place!) for the heaviest and finally scored a (non-decapitated!) Juggernaut! Woo! Now I JUST need the Hot Topic Exclusives to have all of the ones I wanted from this series!

...And if anybody has extras of those, please PM me! It honestly isn't looking like my local HT is getting them. :(

My HT never got the X-Men MMs either. I noticed they've significantly cut back on the number of MMs they carry overall, so I don't think I can rely on them moving forward. They have not sold well at that location. For awhile there it seemed like I was the only person buying MMs from them.

That's really disappointing. At this point, I have more Minis than Pops. I'm more into the variety of them, I suppose.

Found a full case at my local GameStop and grabbed the exclusive locations and got Kitty, Cable, and ... Beast. I'm guessing the top row got shuffled around. I still need a Brown Wolvie.

Beast and Storm might be reversed because my son grabbed these out of the box before I could stop him, and I'm not sure if he put them back correctly.

BOTTOM:
Back: Emma Frost | Logan
Middle: Sabertooth | Professor X
Front: Juggernaut | Magneto


Thanks for this. Only wanted Juggernaut, found a new case this morning at Target and got him.


I just found a case on the shelf at my Target. It was still shrinkwrapped, so I know nobody messed with it. The weights on this layout didn't feel right to me — the spot where y'all's Juggernaut was felt light — so I looked on YouTube. I used this video to find Emma Frost, Juggernaut and Magneto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfv5qN3Pskw

I can't vouch for the other nine characters being in the spots where this guy found them, but the three common exclusives were exactly where they are in the video.

Here's his layout:

TOP
Back: Emma Frost | Sabertooth
Middle: Juggernaut | Storm
Front: Logan | Wolverine

BOTTOM
Back: Beast | Magneto
Middle: Colossus | Mystique
Front: Cyclops | Professor X

It looks like there's more than one layout, but it should be easy to figure out which one you have by feeling for the Juggernaut spot.

Right out of the package, his head was totally severed. The top looks like the glue never dried to the spring and it was just loose. I'm really disappointed about that, as Juggernaut was one of the figures I wanted MOST in this line. Does Funko have offer replacements for defects like this? Because I really don't know how else to get another Juggernaut. There are no stores around me, aside from the one I ALL READY bought it from, that carry the common case.


Same with my Juggernaut! I just found him at Target, and his head was unattached. This also happened with the Beast I got in the full case I bought at Hot Topic. But honestly I have so many issues with Funko gluing the bobbleheads off-center that at this point I'd rather get all the heads unglued. That was I can do it myself. My Sabertooth's head was practically sideways, and my Colossus' head was flush left. I was able to break them off the little nub at the end of the spring and reattach them. Also my Cyclops and Storm have similar issues, but they don't look quite as bad. I tried breaking off the plastic nub, but it won't budge. I'm worried about applying too much pressure and puncturing the actual head piece, so I've been trying to bend the springs into a more satisfactory posture. The things we do for/with our toys, right?

My Barnes and Noble got them in right before Xmas.

I finally found a Gamestop near me that had the exclusive case. They sold out fast around me and all restocks at GS were of the common which I thought was odd. And even better, the box was untouched so I was able to get the exclusives. Thanks to all for the layouts.

That said, I have to echo that the paint apps and quality are all over the place. My brown Wolverine's paint isnt the best and his head placement is weird bc the spring isn't placed in the right spot, so his head is way too far back.

Now to find the HT ones, even though I dont have a HT in my area..

Toys R Us.

I was tempted to collect these but reading all these stories about the heads being detached or glued on improperly will kill my OCD lol

I haven't been able to find a untouched box yet but if my HT still has some when hot cash starts I will pick up what they have left.

I went to my local TRU just now and after searching for a while found a disheveled x-men case with one box missing. I was trying to find the heaviest one between two boxes that had been squished up when I spotted an even more squished up box underneath some other minis and it was much heavier. So I bought that one and it was juggernaut! Really weird that someone would take the time to pick out the juggernaut, destroy the box trying to feel it up, and then just put it back. Worked out for me though.

Maybe they were hiding it until they could pay for it lol

From what I've seen online, there's at least 2 distinct layouts for the standard case. I think the best method is to test the Juggernaut spot in case. If that mini doesn't feel substantially heavier than the rest, then check the other layout to see if that one works.

Yeah, Juggernaut is distinctly the heaviest in the common case. You'll be able to tell whether or not you're holding him.

I pulled some of these from a standard case at Walmart and got most of the ones I wanted, but I am very disappointed with the quality of these compared to previous Mystery Minis that I have collected - TMNT, Sci-Fi 1 and 2. There were lots of inconsistent paint applications and marks, as well as poor color selections for some of the characters. For example the pink on Magneto was a very light pink and Cyclops had neon yellow and light blue. Both should have been a bit darker than they were. I am not impressed and will be getting rid of these.

While I'm going to keep mine as I love x-men, I agree the paint apps are the worst I have seen in a mystery mini line up.

My case had at least four figures with unpainted sections or big smudges across prominent areas. Please don't let this be a sign of things to come Funko.

Iceman is 52.9g and Psylocke was 52.4g for me Good luck! (Just watch out because Cyclops is 52.3 so that is the only one that is close in weight)
