Venom Mystery Minis Possibly coming soon

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.

It was a case from down under. Nothing stateside yet. smh


The constant hunting of Walmart’s is the something I do not look forward to.


No, but if they'd like to drop next month, I'm tentatively planning a road trip and can hit WMs on the way there! That would be great of them...!

Agreed. Nothing worse than walking in and seeing the same stuff sitting on the shelves for 6 months. ](*,)

Ah man! I have those types of people out here as well. I call them the probers. They poke a hole in the box and tear the bag to see what’s inside.

It’s quite irritating. Makes me wonder how much the stores have to write off because nobody will buy them open.

Yup, or walking in and seeing your personal Walmart still doesn’t carry Funko product.

It sucks, thankfully Walmart’s are a dime a dozen so I don’t have to drive all that far to find another store.

Common Captain Marvel, yes. Only one of my local GS got stock on these, everywhere else is at least 1/2 hour away! At GS, I ended up with my 2 Thanos, a Cap and an Iron Man. Everyone else was from BL, and I have no idea how I ended up with no Hulk. I don't hold out a lot of hope on finding the WM minis, I'm still looking for the Spidey set!


Thankfully, you have me out there hunting constantly on this set. In fact, my GS ordered me a couple of boxes and I have since picked up what I needed from the set in trades. I’ll let ya know what I pull and see if you need any of them.


Very much appreciated, thanks! Think my GS options are tapped out here, unfortunately. Found one store with 5 cases left - took my chances and pulled Miles. ](*,) I'll keep looking though, since you never know, right? Hope your Wms are nicer to you than mine are to me! In their defense though, my WMs seem to be disproportionately populated by what I term 'animals' - people that open the boxes right then and there, people that smoosh the boxes, etc. Very frustrating to come in after them and see the mess they left behind, and know that it's making my chances of finding minis I need less likely!


People blow me away. How rude must you be. I get picking up a mini, giving it a shake or even weighing it... but to open the box and then just leave it there is beyond reason. I really dislike people sometimes.

Agreed! Do they not realize this only hurts them in the future? If they continue to do this crap the stores will just stop carrying the product.

Right? Went to a WM a bit out of my normal area, and they'd actually installed a security camera and monitor that I could see myself on! I would hope that would be enough of a deterrent! Kinda hoping more WMs get them so they'll go back to stocking our minis!

I'm not sure which I'm more jealous of, WM roadtrip or ECCC? Good luck at BOTH!

Exactly! It's so weird, too, since it's the opposite of what we have going on around here! The worst I ever encountered was at WM for the Infinity War line - like 8 of them opened, boxes shredded, plastic everywhere. It was like someone let rabid wolves in! And then I come in here and people are offering to help each other, sending minis to fellow funatics, checking stores for them...I just love it in here with all our peeps!

This leads me to believe it’s people who are wanting them to resell. I am glad we have each other here to help out.

So true...they often have bigger problems to deal with, as well! Worth a try though... even if the signal goes nowhere, I'd think it was a deterrent.

Oh I would agree with 100%. The possibility of it being connected to something will at least deter the younger criminals.

Yeah, but it's also pretty easy to snag the case and walk away with it. I've done that a few times when I wanted to weigh the minis, but didn't want people hovering over me. The real question then is, if you were to snag them and walk off, will someone come searching for you pretty quickly after that?

I wouldn’t think so. I have also walked away with the case at times to weigh in private. Again, I just don’t think the employees care all that much. They see a lot of weird stuff to begin with and somebody walking away with the whole case is nothing odd comparably.

Congrats! Does your complete set include the Walmart exclusives?



unfortunately not, I just don't count Walmart until I actually see them in my area. there's too many sets that I just don't see that I don't count. If I see them pop up on ebay for reasonable prices I'll get em after giving it some time for them to make it to my area. I still haven't seen spiderman far from home minis get to my area yet :(

Congrats! Does your complete set include the Walmart exclusives?



unfortunately not, I just don't count Walmart until I actually see them in my area. there's too many sets that I just don't see that I don't count. If I see them pop up on ebay for reasonable prices I'll get em after giving it some time for them to make it to my area. I still haven't seen spiderman far from home minis get to my area yet :(


Sorry to hear that. Thankfully with this set if you manage to find a fresh box you will be able to complete the set for sure.

I'm watching Venom right now and just thought how cool these minis are.

Oh I would agree with 100%. The possibility of it being connected to something will at least deter the younger criminals.


Yeah, but it's also pretty easy to snag the case and walk away with it. I've done that a few times when I wanted to weigh the minis, but didn't want people hovering over me. The real question then is, if you were to snag them and walk off, will someone come searching for you pretty quickly after that?


I wouldn’t think so. I have also walked away with the case at times to weigh in private. Again, I just don’t think the employees care all that much. They see a lot of weird stuff to begin with and somebody walking away with the whole case is nothing odd comparably.


Well, and honestly, they don't know that we're not buying the whole case. I doubt they think anything of it, if they even see it. They got stuff to do!

Ugh, I feel your pain! Not sure why WM is so hard! It's obviously do-able (thank you, Target!), but WM is always a disaster for minis! I'm not holding out a lot of hope (seriously, like 5%!) to see these anywhere other than ebay. Bleh!

On the bright side though, my local comic dealer got in a full set of these - cases A-F. He still had an untouched case F, where I (after some fails, thank you Deadpool, Captain Marvel and Black Panther) managed to pull an X-23! At least I also still needed Black Panther. And then the case he had out had (with 1 missing) had Loki! Score!!! Thanks to some trades, I scored the GITD Hulk and GS Rocket, so now it would just be common Hulk and those WM ones if I want to try to finish. Not bad at all for a set I really didn't think I could find!

That’s the truth. Plenty of other things on their plate to worry about the guy carrying around a box of minis.

Nice scores! I wish my Comic shop ordered like that. They usually order one case total and call it good.

Thanks! There were 2 happy dances in the store - 1 for X-23, and then a more embarassing happy dance over Loki! I'm hoping I'll be able to find someone who wants to trade Hulk for my extra Miles. And then start planning which kindey I'll have to give up if I want the WM exclusives!
