Default GPK Minikins - Gravity Feed...

My cases don't come in till next week - so I picked up a gravity feed on the way home. Collation is horrible for the painted figures.

I guess the yellow 'parallels' are the least common? Does every pack come with one colored and one "rare" color figure?

I picked up 2 packs at Target looking for BNS3 stuff, and I have to say I like them more than I thought I would. Can't see forking out the money for an entire gravity feed though. Probably end up spending just as much picking up a couple packs every time I stop in

Yes, you get one solid color per pack. I have 32 boxes coming next week and have almost pre sold out of base sets.

I have to get my hands on one of the Dead Teds!

They made small figures like this way back when the original series was out (or thereabouts). If I remember correct, they were packaged with candy? I've got a handful somewhere.

Some of those GPK Cheap Toys are worth big money - I would dig them out.

Shoot me your adress and I will send you a Dead Ted.

Yeah it was a prize won by one of the most arrogant people I've ever seen on a message board. He is constantly running his mouth about he is one of the few 'real' collectors out there and talking #@#@#@#@ about anybody who sells anything. Supposedly some huge GPK collector... Wins a 1/1 gold Adam Bomb minikin and the thing is up for sale to the highest bidder in just a few weeks.

They are about 1.5 wide x 1.75 tall with the same image as the card on the front (no border, no logo, no name). The back of the sticker has the character name and some personal information about the character...

"All you need to do to get Buggy Betty to visit is leave a festering pile of slimy garbage outside your door. She just can't resist the sour smell of decaying vegetables or the ptoant musk of rancid meat. But then again, why would you want her to come over?"

I like them actually. I kinda want a base set of figures and stickers. Really could not care less about the rare color figures (sorta like how I feel about color parallel cards).

For being so small, they have an amazing amount of detail.

My four year old daughter has already liberated a few of these off of my table. I found them with her Hello Kitty erasers this morning, and it looked like one huge family. lol

Are you planning on selling any? I'm interested in an unpainted Adam Bomb, doesn't matter which color.

I bought a few packs of these, and I must say that they're ridiculously overpriced. Maybe if they were bigger, they'd be worth it...but they're no different than something you'd pay 50 cents for in a prize machine. And it kind of boggles my mind that the unpainted are the "rare" ones. I'd think it takes more money/effort to paint one, so why isn't it the other way around? Either way...I was initially pretty excited for these. But I'd say they're a huge letdown based on the size and price.

This has actually been one of the best product I've done all year. Pre-sells were very strong - I actually had to raise prices and limit how many of the neon sets I would list (I only pre-sold 1/3).

Painted sets just went crazy. I don't think I will have a single set left after next week.

Congrats. How many gravity feeds/cases you bust so far?

1 Gravity feeder.

Right now I am working on my 2 cases (just finishing my first case). The're the 16 box, 24 count pack cases. The issue I am seeing though - is a few of the figures are not easily found in the packs. It seems that 6 of them were mainly used for the jumbo packs (they were used for the display figure). This may cause a slight issue and I might have to hit up some Targets.

Edit: I did hit a box with 4 yellows - so that was fun.

I swung by Target on my way home tonight to see if they had the GPK BNS3 rack packs and bonus boxes yet. Nope, but I did see 4 pack minikins with one figure in the window and three mystery figures for a better value than the 2 packs in the gravity feeds. Picked up two packs - Nasty Nick displayed and Leaky Lindsay displayed. Both yielded 1 colored, 1 blue, 1 red in the mystery figures. I'll probably pick up a couple more. I did notice most of them were displaying Russell Muscle.
