Harry Potter S3 MM

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

I've picked up 4 boxes so far (I'm a teacher, so I can't buy cases at a time, unfortunately) and the first three boxes I opened were all Diggory ](*,) before I got Filch on my last one. So, if anyone needs Diggory, I've got two to spare! lol

Seems like the first stock has come out, and might already be picked over. Best to wait for a restock, or you can try your luck with an online order (not suggested, it's limit to 2 per order and there are so many 1/6s).

Just got my first HP (Target) Mystery Mini from my oh so sweet hunny and it was Harry Potter himself! I suppose this is a good way to start off the set! lol

I see a lot of peeps talking about the B&N series which I am for sure interested in...I'm usually pretty good with snagging Pop's but this is newer territory for me so any advice is helpful!!
I just like smiling...smilings my favorite

Looking For:
*Buff Rick & Buff Summer YAY!!
*Freddy Flux's Smiling & Winking
*Metallic Cereal Pops (Boo Berry, Count Chocula, & Franken Berry)

Here's the link for Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/toys-g ... 9698312110

That number at the end (0889698312110) is their item number, so if you go to the store, you can ask them to look up stock by this number. There have been rumors that you can't fully trust the stock indicator in the "Find In Store" section, so if you can call or go in person and give them that number, that should help.

I did manage to get all 3, but it took going to 3 different B&N to get them. I'm still trying to help out a friend who only has one B&N in her area, and it got picked over before she could get to it. So far, the other B&N I've been to haven't gotten a restock and are either picked over, or don't have what she needs. Thank goodness B&N is good about restocks, I know it's just a matter of being patient!

I would also add - look for in stock #s in multiples of 12. If you get a stock of 18, that means someone bought 6 - chances are good, they took the sweet spots already! Still worth trying for, you get random attempts and kids that don't know, and maybe they took the bottom right corner and middle left because they felt lucky (this was actually me with my first HP mini purchases, 3 years ago....boy oh boy have I learned since then!).

Haha oh wow...ok so you're saying there are better chances of pulling more rare minis if I choose the bottom right and middle left?! Sheesh I have a lot to learn!!

I found 2 Myrtles. One was 59.6. The other 58.6. Fleur is in this range also but with a bit of a shake you might be able to guess as Fleur has a big hat and Myrtle doesn't.

I found a fresh case and ended up with 2 Toms! There were a couple loose boxes so I'm guessing a couple got mixed. I had been to HT earlier that same day and pulled the HT Tom!

Oh goodness no, don't listen to 3-years-ago me! She didn't know what she was doing (or what she was getting into!). Since then I've learned about ratios, case layouts, weights and store exclusives! My first 2 pulls (Padfoot & Hermione, I think?) I didn't even realized how great it was I'd pulled an exclusive.

Sadly, I purchased nearly the entire series 3 set from various resellers. I was out of town on vacations when both the HT and Target exclusives hit so I basically gave up. Found Myrtle in the wild but that's it for good pulls. I left Krum and MN until the end in case I found a bundle deal.

Congrats! Wish I had your ISO, but if you're looking to sell Tom, let me know! He's one of the few I still need. Thanks regardless!

Good point. Though, as the stores restock, the numbers are harder to go off of. They could have 18 because they had 6 from the previous batch, but got one new box in. Always good to call and check if they got recent stock in.

Ugh, the frustration of bad timing! And a double whammy on top of that! Hopeful that nothing was too over the top for your purchases, at least. And that hopefully this means S4 will be your turn to score nothing but good pulls!

Another good point! So with that, I'd go with - don't just trust sweet spots then. And good luck!

Thanks synergy56 and bakivali for for the info re: Buckbeak and Series 2. I’ll keep my eyes peeled but it doesn’t look good.
My B&N Tom Riddle finally arrived so I am now complete with S3 (but he has a slightly raised right foot and so wobbles a bit, hate it when that happens, but better than nothing!).
Best moment for us with S3, lifting up the Basilisk box, you just knew it was in there before even opening it, so much heavier!
Worst moment of S3, opening a Target box to find it had a Quidditch World Cup Hermione loose head!! It took a second to realise that the body was in there too. Luckily it popped back on with no problem lol

Try fixing Toms feet with boiling water if you havent.

Boil water, dip feet, let it straighten out and then dip in ice cold water to set. If the feets dont straighten as soon as they hit the hot water you can also gently mold them in the right direction after dipping in the hot water. Ive used this on my own minis without harming the mini or my hands/skin. Good luck.

Seriously though - I'd have freaked out! Glad you were able to fix her!

I did freak out at first, the high of yesssss it’s QWC Hermione to what!?! she’s just a head!?!!!! If it hadn’t popped back on I would have been so disappointed, but I guess for all those with multiple S3 doubles you could have some fun swapping the heads and trying some new looks! lol

I've seen that from a couple different people with Toxic Morty. At least you got the foot included.

Yeah, I saw some help posts for how to cast a few foot from clay haha. It was interesting to see that they really can be popped in and out though. Customs should be pretty easy to make since it's just pegs into holes.

My B&N Tom Riddle finally arrived so I am now complete with S3 (but he has a slightly raised right foot and so wobbles a bit, hate it when that happens, but better than nothing!).
Best moment for us with S3, lifting up the Basilisk box, you just knew it was in there before even opening it, so much heavier!
Worst moment of S3, opening a Target box to find it had a Quidditch World Cup Hermione loose head!! It took a second to realise that the body was in there too. Luckily it popped back on with no problem lol

I thought it was just me. His foot popped right off and nearly went under my fridge. Luckily I had some crazy glue and fixed his foot right up.

I think I was lucky that there is toxic slime around his foot because I accidentally overfilled the hole with super glue and it oozed out but it looks like it was part of the mini lol.

Does that mean she's NEARLY Headless Hermione? lol

Seriously though - I'd have freaked out! Glad you were able to fix her!


I did freak out at first, the high of yesssss it’s QWC Hermione to what!?! she’s just a head!?!!!! If it hadn’t popped back on I would have been so disappointed, but I guess for all those with multiple S3 doubles you could have some fun swapping the heads and trying some new looks! lol


Absolutely! I've seen some really cool customs lately made out of extra commons. I'm so in awe of people who can do things like that - I am distinctly lacking in talent in this area..!

I did manage to get all 3, but it took going to 3 different B&N to get them. I'm still trying to help out a friend who only has one B&N in her area, and it got picked over before she could get to it. So far, the other B&N I've been to haven't gotten a restock and are either picked over, or don't have what she needs. Thank goodness B&N is good about restocks, I know it's just a matter of being patient!

That’s what’s up. I’ve only tried one store and got dupes if krum so I had to throw in the towel. It sucks since I’m so close to completing
950+ pops, dorbz, minis, psh, patches, and pins.

Anyone hear word of B&N restocking lately? It's hard to go off of the store tracker on the site since some of the area stores have leftovers from the first stock.

Defiantly tired after these 3 waves. Honestly might sell all mine. Hunt is getting tiring and never cared for the style but it's HP and I go back and forth all the time.

GameStop has their Mystery Boxes up online for sale. The Boggart/Snape and Professor Trelawny are a ratio of 1:2. Same as the Pop, so I ordered two boxes hoping to get both as I need them to complet my set. Both turned out great!

I was thinking about ordering two as well, but with my luck, I'd end up with the same exact box two times over!

I'm really hoping between all of us ordering 2 boxes each, we'll be able to make trades and help each other out! Really wish though that they'd been kind to us and just put both minis into each box.

Just updated my post, I was going to ask if anyone could get a box for me, but think hailmary25 is right on other HP post and hopefully there’ll be a few on eBay soon, as long as they don’t become as rare as Buckbeak it should be ok! [-o<
