Retro Toys 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.

2 Target Exclusive Glo-Worms (Normal green), 2 Target Leatherheads, 2 Normal Leatherheads (Not even advertised on box?), 2 Mr. potato Heads, 1 Mrs. Potato Head and 1 Shipwreck. Very weird

EDIT: And neither glo-worm glows. But I just read others comments and it seems to have swapped again. Still weird that my case was mostly 1/6's.

The glo worms don’t glow and are misprinted on the box. The exclusive is the pj worm that isn’t on the box! It appears to be a 1/24. At this point, I’m wondering if Target messes up on purpose


Glow worm in PJ glows it is the 1/72 target exclusive. Jumbled Potato swaps with my pet monster for the 1/24.

Confirmed from unopened case.

Has it been confirmed that Pajama glow worm is 1/72 or Target Jumbled POtato head?

i don't know the name of the specifc g.i. joe characters, but the the breakdown was

regular glowworm green x 2
messed up face potato head x 2
tan suit gi joe x 2
green suit gi joe x 2
gi joe guy with parrot x1
pajama green glowworn x1
mustache potato head x 1
flower ms. potato head x1

pretty bummed. this is kind of why i'm selling stopped collecting and am selling off most of my minis (email me at smkinchy@gmail.com if you want a list of what i'm getting rid of)

Wow that's weird....I went through 2 full cases sealed and brought out from the back from 2 different Targets and no jumbled pOtato head in both new cases. Other members have confirmed that jumbled Potato Head also wasn't found in some cases. Found him at a Target case that had 4 minis in the 70-71g range. Usually that's 2 common Potato Head, a Mrs potato Head, and then the jumbled 1/72. Ratios are all wrong. There is no Stretch or Pet Monster in the Target cases. But you see him on the back of the box as an error. Same error on why you found a Pajama glo worm and the pic isn't on the back of the box. This set's ratios are all off. PJ glo worm is 1/24 and Jumbled POtato Head is the 1/72. You must have gotten a lucky fluke case with 2 jumbled POtato Head and if that's the case, kudos because those are the rares.

Yea, definitely not. Got an untouched case F and had the 1/72 glo worm, and the 1/24 snake eyes. Jumbled potato head in multiple boxes, and can't be a 1/72 in that case. Appears they are both 1/36, or 1/24. But a 1/72 can only be in one case configuration, appears the OP had a mixed box and got two of the 1/24 jumbled face.

Either way, the ratios are off, so no one knows.

Congrats. I really want the specialty series exclusives, but a full box with unknown ratios is a bit risky. Need Mr. Monopoly.

Ratios seem to be off in Specialty Series too. Got all 3 exclusives, and a snake eyes. Got jumbled Potato as the rare spot. Stretch not in box, yet on back.

Monopoly weighs 62.0. Found at Go Calendars. Good luck hunting out there.

I don't understand any of these ratios, and exclusives... Everything seems to be completely wrong... Don't even know where the Flocked Monster Pet is actually available...

They are off, but still not too bad. The flocked monster is in specialty series boxes and is 1/24

I realize that its never to late, but I am so behind on many sets that I am finding I am regretting not starting some of them. Perhaps in 2021 comes and my debt is paid off that I can reprioritize time to begin hunting again!

Surprised there's no Transformers in this line... Oh god... They're probably going to do a full series of just Transformers. My wallet, it's doomed! I may hesitate on Pops, but never on minis.

I was browsing WG yesterday.... and I found some retro minis. I do scale... but I couldn't find any solid weights.. but I had a few... There were only 4 in the collection that I wanted. I got 2/4. I was pretty happy about that. I have been itching to hunt for quite a while, but lacked the motivation. It reminded me how much I loved hunting. I think that if I come across some in the wild naturally then I'll grab them, but I dont have the energy anymore to hunt like I used too.
