Toy Story: Mattel "Minis" Blind Packs (Series 1)
The Toy Story "Minis" collection from Mattel began last Summer with the Toys R Us exclusive 10-pack which I wrote all about HERE. Right around the same time (maybe a little after), the same exact figures started showing up at Walmart stores in blind bags beginning with/dubbed as "series 1".
Though series 1 mostly just consists of repackaged figures from the Toys R Us set (as seen on the back of the package below), there is one awesome addition: a "special edition" black and white (Woody's Roundup) Woody figure! Of course that was the only one I needed from this initial blind bags series since I had all the others. And here he is! I was able to track him down a few months back.
Again with these, when they say mini, they mean mini. Woody here, like the rest of the characters in this line, is just over an inch tall. His head can move slightly from side to side (his waist can also be twisted) and his hat is removable.
Now over the last month or so, series 3 of these blind bag figures started showing up at Walmarts around the country (which I'll be showing off in tomorrow's post). But wait...what happened to series 2? That is the question a lot of us fans are asking. There is an image of the package online HERE (notice that it includes a special edition black and white Woody's Roundup Jessie) but no other info can be found. I haven't heard of anyone finding series 2 and I've never seen them for sale on eBay. For now it's a mystery.
Anyway—be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow's series 3 post, featuring a bunch of awesome new characters to collect. A video unbagging will be up soon as well. Until next time!
UPDATE: Here's a link to my series 3 post! I've also added a video unbagging below.
