Just released from Bandai toys, here we have this super fun set of eight Finding Dory collectible figure "blind bag" packs (series 1)! I was really looking forward to this collection, so I was totally thrilled to have found a complete set of these at Target just a couple days ago.
The eight characters included in this series 1 are: Marlin, Dory, Becky (a new loon character), Crush, Pearl, a sea otter, Hank and a hermit crab.
Though these are technically classified as "blind bags", they actually have a little window on the back so you can see who you're buying. I love that! I like that it gives you options; you can either live on the edge by seeing who you get once you open it (like a traditional blind bag) or you can cheat (like me) to make sure you get them all.
I personally like the best of both worlds. I like to make sure I have them all there at the store (plus I hate getting repeats), but then I open each of them without looking once I get home (so there's still a little element of surprise).
Lets have a closer look at each figure! These are really nice. I love the sculpts and the overall stylized designs each character. They have really decent paint jobs too. As for the material, they are made of hard plastic and do not have any articulation (and no, the hermit crab's football helmet is not removable). Retail price is $2.99.
So far I've seen these at Kohl's, Target, Walmart and Toys R Us, but I expect them to be available elsewhere as well. Keep your eyes peeled!

I'm really hoping for a series 2 later this year. What do you think? Who would you want to see in a future assortment? Do you prefer to open them blind or do you prefer to peek at who you're getting? Shout it out in the comments below!
