Paka Paka - Fruit Bats

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 thought December but who knows at this point anymore...


Well, no December to this point.

In the meantime though, surprised to see how few of the Fruit Bats were in stock at Hollywood today! Someone obviously got there before me and snagged a bunch! Did buy 5 - 2 new, and 3 duplicates. Down to needing the 1/36s, and the Kiwi bat. Not too bad! Hope is still alive!


I can't wait to receive my zoops

Yeah I have decided no matter what, I won't look to complete. I will get what I can budget and be happy with what I get. If I don't do this, it could get super expensive for sure.

I always say I'll be okay if I don't complete, and then I end up doing crazy road trips and just one more attempt! So far only one set that isn't complete for all my minis, not counting this round since I haven't given up yet. It may come to that though - we'll see!

It sure can get expensive! Even though it wasn't quite as much fun, I think it was cheaper ultimately to order an entire case and sell off my extras. Trying to not think to hard about what I've spend so far on this batch! lol

Yep, time to move on to the next set! Seems like these are coming out a lot faster than they did originally, must've gotten the manufacturing down by now!

The blinds are fun up to a certain point, but after the 4th duplicate of a particular point, they definitely stop being fun!

Yeah, pulling multiple duplicates is exhausting and not as satisfying to complete a set!

Yeah, there are only so many you can give away or talk (con!) friends into buying off you! Just put 2 of my extras into holiday gifts for friends. If they don't like them...oh well! I tried, right? lol

It did.....

But just when you think you're out (and going to ebay!), they suck you back in! GS has all the blind stuff BOGO 50% off! So of course I bought 5. Why not, right? Delivery not expected until at least next week at the earliest, but I'll be keeping my fingers crossed in the meantime!

Finally bought myself 3 Fruit Bats from Amazon! I think I'm going to end up buying a couple of more later. I wanted a pineapple, strawberry, and dragon fruit. Can't believe I pulled the white strawberry, but still ended up with a duplicate pineapple. Can't wait for Soup Troops! I kind of want all of them.

I say you can never have too much pineapple, though it is my favorite fruit.

On GS, or for me?

Ugh, these bats are out to get me. I did a quick mall run this evening to pick up an online order, and ducked into BL for the first time in MONTHS! Was doing well until my friend pointed out the bowl of bats there. Took a chance and bought 3 to get the B2G1 deal - guess what I pulled? 3...yes, 3! of the watermelon bat. Bah! We'll see what happens with my GS order, but I really do think that's it for me at this point, these are more frustrating than fun at this point.

Crossing my fingers for you! My last batch will supposedly be here on Thursday, though we'll see - the other GS products I ordered arrived today, so I'm not sure I trust that Thursday date! Really hoping whoever picked my batch had some good luck going. And especially hoping I don't get any more watermelon bats!

I was the same, waiting for all of December. Finally gave in when they did the B1G1 half off last week, but only because I had my monthly reward to sweeten the deal! Their paka sales haven't been fabulous since that last B1G1 round. I miss that!

I was thinking I should do the Paka Paka - Fruit Bats Dance. Similar to the rain dance but it get's you all the rear ones.

I think that doubles ship has sailed, unfortunately. But my incoming order of 5 will be my last no matter what, since they are getting ridiculous! I may end up sticking my extras to the ceiling in the guest room to freak out visitors! lol

lol how quickly we move on to the next pakas! Meanwhile I'm over here still needing 3 of my fruit bats!

I haven't even seen a fruit bat in any of my stores yet.... I'm still waiting in vain for gamestop to have one of their Paka paka sales so I can buy a case lol


I was the same, waiting for all of December. Finally gave in when they did the B1G1 half off last week, but only because I had my monthly reward to sweeten the deal! Their paka sales haven't been fabulous since that last B1G1 round. I miss that!

Yeah thats what I've been waiting for, last time the did b1g1 the fruit bats weren't out yet and I wasn't interested in the other lines. I think they knew lol, gotta make me wait....

If they weren't going to do it before the holidays, you'd think they'd do it after when we all have gift cards??? C'mon, GS! Get with the program! lol

Lol that does feel like a legit strategy, I guess maybe they sell well enough they don't need a big sale. We just need people to pretend not to like them so I can get my sets :)
