Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Mystery Minis Series 1

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.

And my niffler luck has run out. Down to needing Queenie and 1/72 Niffler, and pulled an extra Tan niffler instead. Alas! Looking forward to going hunting for those last 2 this weekend!

I just need Queenie. Luckily a few Gamestops in my area haven't gotten them in yet, so there's still hope!

Why does it seem like the Brown niffler and the niffler with the blue gem are the hardest to find. I’m hoping to not drop 20$ each on eBay, I was hoping to make a trade but at this point I would settle for a decent price.

The tan Niffler is still avoiding me. I went out tonight and 1 GameStop did not get them and the other had sold theirs as they had the empty case left. I had good luck last Sunday and Monday finding new cases but now it seems more people are on the hunt. I am just glad I found both of the 1/72’s (Niffler and Queenie) and even pulled 2 of those Nifflers.

Let’s start a prayer circle for these to pop up at other stores.

Super long shot... but I have extras of Chupacabra and Blue Gem Niffler. My only remaining ISO is Queenie. Anyone in need of those two in exchange for Queenie? Doubt anyone has an extra Queenie, but wanted to check. Thanks!

EDIT: Both gone, but still need Queenie haha

These should hit everywhere eventually, right? Hit a bunch of GS, and a couple BL this weekend, and they were either picked over already, or had blue gem Niffler. And since I already have 3 of blue gem Niffler, that wasn't as exciting as it would have been, otherwise!

Would really appreciate it if they started showing up at HT, BN, WM, Target, etc., just to give more hunting options! Otherwise I seriously have to expand my GS hunting area in the hopes of pulling standing Niffler and Queenie!

I wish I had your blue gem niffler issue, im the opposite, all my stores are picked over as well but my traders cant move a blue gem and im not ready to pay 20 on ebay yet . Im hoping they roll out to barns, HT and maaaaaybe even target. I never thought there would be the day I wish a funko product would hit target.
I also wonder if maybe Micheal's will get them since they are getting the newt with post card pop

I’m not at the point I’m ready to pay much more over retail, a price point no one is willing to sell at, I’m content to wait it out. I keep saying I need to invest in a scale, this would be the perfect timing since I only need one

Nah, the scale only gives you a ballpark, you still end up with wrong minis on occasion - hence my 3 blue gem nifflers.

If I manage to track down my last 2 that I need without needing to trade a bg niffler, I'll sell one to you for cost + shipping! So fingers crossed for us both!

The nifflers are so cute in this set I could die. I only want them. I don't really like the Fantastic Beasts stuff but I HAVE TO HAVE ALL THE NIFFLERS.

Yeah, this set is tricky because the nifflers are all around the same weight. But a scale would help you narrow it down a bit! Good luck!

Queenie and the 1/72 Niffler. Of course, right? Always the 1/72!! Should be able to go hunting tomorrow, so we'll see what happens then! LOL - good luck to us both!

I must admit the latest mystery minis that came out looks great but I'm afraid to start might not be able to stop myself. I'm already a funko fanatic but a mini fanatic sounds awesome

Wohoo!! Went to 4 GS tonight, and managed to find the 1/72 Niffler! Down to just needing Queenie!

He is adorable! So glad I was able to track him down!

Found these at FYE, finally! Bought all but 2 that I'm thinking are the other half of the 1/6's. Have to wait until the wifey gets home to open them...

Update: I left behind Grindlewald and the owl thing, and ended up with Dumbledore, Chupacabra, and blue-gem Niffler as my higher-ratio figures. Not a bad start!

5 Gamestop quest Saturday, and happy to have pulled a Queenie and completed the set! Now to wait, content, and see if they throw a curveball and announce some exclusives...!

Took a friend questing with me, and she decided she had to have all the nifflers! Managed to track them down for her during the quest - I tried to explain to her how rare the pulls she got were, and the case ratios, etc...I don't think she got it. And of course her favorite, which she named Scruffy, is the 1/72 niffler. ](*,)

I wasn't planning on collecting this set, until I found a couple full cases at different Gamestops. Now I'm so close I feel like I have to finish it out lol

Still missing the 1/72 Niffler, 2 of the 1/24s, and most of the commons I figured I could trade for later to save on some funds.

Can't guarantee it, but I think the new Walmart displays include the Fantastic Beasts minis. Want to say I saw them when someone posted a pic of one of their local displays. Can't be certain though, sorry.

I have to think they'll flood the market with these closer to the movie. Seemed like BL and GS got theirs kinda early this round!
