Infinity war minis

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.

Infinity war minis

Postby Woodyisasexybeast » Wed Sep 19, 2018 6:13 pm

So I was just curious if anyone here knows if the infinity war minis are still being produced? I can't seem to find them anywhere at this point and I'd really love to complete the set. I've never seen any at hot topic and I've only ever seen one Target exclusive box which contained iron man, unfortunately. Sorry if this is the wrong way or place to post this, I'm new here.

Unfortunately, I don't know that there will be any restocks on these. Hot Topic and Target haven't gotten in any new cases in several months. Target actually clearanced theirs out a few months ago. I've seen the occasional case at FYE and Barnes and Noble, but those are of course just the common cases.

Target is clearancing out theirs Its done. If your store has a case in the back, itll be clearanced with no more to come.

Maybe I was just really late to the party but I feel like they didn't last very long.

Nope, they didn't. Most Targets only got in one, maybe two cases. I don't think HT restocked very much, either. Wal-Mart also never restocked them. It's like they were a one-and-done wave.

The only good thing about this set is that, since the ratios were so unkind to us, you can at least get the base set pretty inexpensively on evilbay. The exclusives though...that's a whole other issue! Good luck trying to track them down though!

yeah, the base set is still easy to obtain.

I was lucky with the exclusives, for the most part. I never got the wal-mart Iron Man, or HT Bucky, but I got all of the Target ones, and the other HT and WM ones.

Only missing the HT Cap to complete the set! Started a bit late to the party but did a few trades here and there, now I just need one more lol It was pretty difficult to nearly complete tbh.

That is absolutely lucky - 7/9 is a great ratio! I never did find a Falcon or Black Widow in the wild, had to make trades for them. That whole series was tough! Good luck keeping a look out for the last ones you need!

There were very few restocks for the Infinity War line, Target only got one restock and they were done for good, at least in my area. After hot cash period, when the IW line was still a thing, IW minis disappeared from Hot Topics as well. I saw a bunch at FYE though, long after they stopped showing up at Target and Hot Topic. Kinda sucks though cause the only hard ones to find in the common IW cases were Doctor Strange and Hulkbuster. As for walmart you might get lucky and see some there, but most of the ones i've been to have been pillaged by heathens that open them in store and steal the 1/72 Iron Man and 1/36 Falcon.

I started putting together a YouTube video recently regarding the infinity war mystery minis. My Walmart had a ton of them on clearance for 3 bucks so I bought 50 dollars worth and recorded the opening while simultaneously educating people on how these minis worked because I found the whole exclusive concept to be quite confusing when I first started collecting them. Especially with the multiple ratios on hulkbuster. I generally don't like those kinds of videos either because I feel that there's way too much uselessness in the video. Unboxing a case of minis shouldn't equate to a 20 minute long video. So I trimmed the crap out of it and sped up the moments where I was actually opening the boxes. I was thinking about posting that video here whenever I finally got around to finishing it. Maybe it'd be helpful to less experienced collectors. I know it would've been very helpful to me at least.

Anyways. I managed to snag corvus glaive in that run. I haven't finished the video just yet. I wanted to get some high res, close up video of the figures first. I think it's important for people to know what it is they're buying. I didn't realize how cool the minis were until my sister gave me one for my birthday. I had no idea what they were like and I definitely would've bought more if I did. I did manage to grab the Walmart exclusive iron Man and most of the base set. Excluding doctor strange, hulkbuster and cull obsidian. No luck on falcon either, unfortunately and as I said in my original post, I've never seen any at hot topic and only one box at Target.

That's terrible that people just take them though. Filthy animals.

That's sucks that you weren't able to score the falcon, but luckily you did score the Iron Man which was the rarest one out of the Walmart exclusives. The aftermarket price on the walmart Iron Man dropped significantly too, which means the falcon should be even cheaper to get on the aftermarket. The target exclusive 1/72 and hot topic 1/72 will cost a lot though. I was lucky enough to score captain america at hot topic using hot cash. But i paid $100 for the groot and now he's worth even more. So this set will rough to complete especially now.

I saw Gamestop and Barnes and Noble got restocked with the non-exclusive sets a couple times, but the exclusives were only stocked once or twice (Target only once around here, HT twice). This set was extremely hard to complete.
