Using weights or not?

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.

Using weights or not?

Postby Dsho333 » Sat Sep 12, 2020 6:59 pm

What are everyone's thoughts on using weights? I think using a scale in a store is bad, but what about after you have purchased? Should you sell ones you have weighed and haven't open since you don't need that weight? I just see so many posts of people selling tons of duplicates and wonder if they feel using weights is morally wrong. I was testing some weights of the alien remix and when I thought I had a certain one it was off and got a different character. Seems like there was enough variance between 0 to 2 grams sometimes.

I say weigh on! If you don't, the next person will. Plus Funko giving us more of that 1/6 BS making us weigh more. No one wants to waste money on duplicates. If they did 1/12 or higher ratios, I'd be more incline to not weigh as much. Or even 1 1/6 minis....but not 4...and I've spent quite a bit in the past before scaling. In some cases, I like the surprise factor sometimes and go in on it blind but depends on mood...haha

I agree, the point of all this is hunting and collecting, not selling off your dupes

I weigh all mini sets i buy, all boxes i see. I have a box of dupes from doing it without a scale, just not worth it.

Also, since Funko makes it so buying a case is a stupid idea, scales are the only option. 4 of the same figure in each crate or more, makes no sense.

Personally, if people dont want to scale, thats great. Ill take the 1/72 they leave behind with my scale. You know what they say, one born every day.

Yeah definitely opening the boxes is a big no no. I've walked into some stores and had boxes just destroyed. Also happened with mystery boxes at GameStop and Barnes and Noble.

Yeah I don't like how the odds aren't actually odds since they are filling the cases on purpose and not randomly. They should go back to the odds of all 1/12 and maybe some 1/6. Then have exclusives at 1/12 and 1/24 and 1/36.

I should be able to get all the regular ones and probably hot topic/box lunch but I might have to just buy the Walmart ones from resellers

I have never scaled before and have spent way too much buying the Disney Afternoon series. I have a ton of extras because I was looking for on last character (that I ended up buying from a reseller because I had spent too much). It stopped me from buying the HB sets because I didn’t have the money to devote so I skipped the collection and wish I had not. I think I might scale next time there’s a collection I cannot miss. I like the surprise but when you just need a few last ones, it can be very frustrating and takes the joy away.

I'm not a fan of scales or weighing your toys. I wish, instead, that Funko would get rid of 1/6 and go no higher than 1/72.

Personally, if I'm only looking for one or two, I'll hit up ebay and the BST pages. If I want to collect a majority of the set, I buy singles until I get a dupe, then go to Ebay or the BST pages.

I guess what I'm saying is that I find it much easier to just buy what I want on the secondary market.

Yeah it definitely takes away from the fun to not get all the characters if possible, I was intimated before because I didn't want to waste a ton of money to just get commons

Yeah that's definitely a option most people have to turn to, it would be nice to get it all for myself, that's what collecting is for me, I told myself I wouldn't buy a chase second hand until I found one I wanted myself

No weights for me, it takes the fun out of the gamble. The suspense and ultimate satisfaction of pulling something you want is part of the fun.

I used to roll the dice, but with the current ratios, weighing is the only way not to waste a bunch of money on doubles. And because everyone gets the exact same doubles, it's almost impossible to trade or sell them so you're typically stuck with them. It also comes in handy if there's just one or two pieces you want from a set. Not sure if there's a huge difference between weighing in store or weighing them at home and then returning the unopened ones — just fewer steps. And it typically just comes down to the store policy.

Yeah, it seems like they make the sets almost too hard that it pushes more people away than it does pull them in, I've started to notice too that alot of cases have the rarer ones on the top layer so if you get to a case late, you are really screwed

I agree I like the hunt but if I only need one or two to finish my collection, I would be tempted to do it. I don’t mind the random buying at the beginning and like I said before, I haven’t done it, but I seriously would consider scaling for the last grail to keep me engaged. Otherwise I would probably never buy any more and that’s not what Funko wants. They need us to :mir1: :mir1: :mir1: so they can make more for us to :mir1: :mir1: :mir1:

It's alot of give and take, I think people spend too much on one set and then that turns them off from the next, maybe one day we will have a good balance of rarity and accessibility

I don’t know how I feel about weighing, seems like cheating to me. But at the same time, it sucks getting doubles you can barely give away.

I don't get a ton of dupes. And when I do, it's part of the gamble. If I'm going for complete sets, I usually pick them off of eBay one by one or in lots. It's more economical to me that way. Plus, I would feel weird busting out a scale at the store...lol

I have never done it. I have heard of it being done. I wouldnt even know where to look to check for a list of the weights. I dont see anything wrong with it. I use to be one of those parents squeezing and manipulating the lego blind bag, making all kinds of noise for my son, so we would get what he wanted and not end up with a duplicate. To my this just the same. I wish I knew more about weighing when my son tried to collect the avengers MM’s!!!

Yeah I would weighing is about the same as feeling the bag, no guarantees but can make some eliminations. You can join some mystery minis groups on Facebook, and sometimes here on the boards people will post them.

I've started using a scale since 2015 when I kept getting doubles of horror and sci fi. Just seemed to make the most sense. Now I have a Bible of compiled weights from almost every set. Does me well.

I definitely weigh. I usually buy 1 full case and try to get a feel for the layout from that and then I weigh in store if the store doesn't have a problem with it. I used to try to go on layout alone, but with all the consolidated and mixed cases in stores I one time ended up with 4 of the same mini from one case. If I only want a few from a case I tend to just post my wants and buy from other collectors. The dupes are seriously no joke, I must have sold 100+ dupes, and I think I have at least that many again.

Yeah I'm afraid of having just so many dupes that I'll have to sell them for so cheap I'm taking a huge loss. Especially with 6 exclusives for The Office, there no way I can just open every box I come across.

I've sold and traded my doubles in fb groups, sold older rarer figures on eBay, sold at conventions when we had them. I don't take back my doubles that's for sure.

Make sure to get a scale that weighs .01 and not just .1
When I weigh my minis I create an actual weight spread for a figure. Ex...

I used to try to go on layout alone, but with all the consolidated and mixed cases in stores I one time ended up with 4 of the same mini from one case. If I only want a few from a case I tend to just post my wants and buy from other collectors. The dupes are seriously no joke, I must have sold 100+ dupes, and I think I have at least that many again.


I have done and will continue to do the same. I love weighing a fresh case just to analyze and figure out the layout and grab the figures I need most.
