Harry Potter Series 2 (Mystery 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.

Oh nuts! I know I said I was ready, and I do want ALL THE THINGS, but I'm so not ready for this!

Also...crap, what did I do with my scale? I am NOT ending up with an army of Hermione this round!

I did a double take reading this since I was about to write the exact same thing! ! lol. I am so not ready for a new series and I will most certainly be weighing everything to avoid a second army of Hwrmiones. She was positively insidious last time. Of course I want to aee pics of this series, but the worry is in the rarities and where the exclusives are. Commence the mini stress!!

Great minds! (Alternatively: give me back my brain!)

The biggest bright side for me this round is that I'm here! This place is super informative - last round I didn't know about the exclusives until the first round of B&N had come and gone. This time I will be well informed thanks to my fellow Funatics! I'm going to hope that these don't come out during SDCC (the date range started in July - NO!)

I still have 2 Hermione's and 3 Crookshanks that I need to go away somewhere else. Anywhere else. Sheesh!

We are Borg. lol
I ended up giving away all those extra commons for Halloween. Hopefully for series 2 we will all be able to help each other out....and there won't be any B&N exclusives lol

Resistance is futile!
Good to think that this round will be a team effort, rather than alone in the dark like I felt round 1 was! As for exclusives - HT was great about it, and kept restocking. B&N really made the whole process a lot of work, which I don't think they needed to do! But I guess I'd rather stick with them than some of the other options out there?

Just as my wallet was starting to recover !!

Of course super excited, and likewise very glad to be here this time around.

Predictions? I think we'll definitely get a Neville and Luna, maybe a Ginny? Buckbeak would make a really cool figure too!

AGREED! Got super lucky (and smart with the scale!) and scored 2 - 1 for myself and 1 for my friend that I addicted to these, right after B&N finally restocked. Made sure to get there before their HP event, and sure enough - after that, those mini boxes disappeared again!

I wonder if Barnes and Noble will try to do an exclusive set again. I haven't seen them try to do any other mystery mini sets since then.

That's a great idea! Thatd be cool if they did the different patronus and if they glowed in the dark!

Her prices went crazy! I was going to buy another one since the one I got from a box has a paint flaw on her cheek, but I'll keep the flawed one instead. The Hot Topic ones just seem to skyrocket whenever they stop getting the exclusive boxes in store.

I am hoping that there is only 1 retailer exclusive set to chase this time instead of 2 retailers. Hot Topic and Barnes & Noble were tough ones to complete but I lucked out on both. Yule Hermione was the last one I needed and found here at HT on a day they happened to get a new case in that no one had touched yet. And I found Dumbledore at B&N on the weekend of the Cursed Child book release when they restocked the stores with more HP product.

Personally I am hoping for Hot Topic, maybe Barnes and Noble again (if we know they'll do a restock again). I would really dislike it being Target or Walmart since they don't seem to stock the minis ever. Gamestop isn't so bad, but I can't see Gamestop wanting to get into Harry Potter.

Agreed! If they do retailer exclusives, I really hope they keep it to the larger retailers. I dread the thought of a walgreens exclusive. Gamestop, HT and B&N are fine - or at least, I think they are. I feel more confident in trying for all of them now, since I feel I'm so much better informed by hanging out in here! My local Gamestops are where I got most of commons last round, since everyone else had sold out of their initial stock!

I think it's time for me to invest in a scale for Mystery Minis, especially if the box layouts are going to be more randomized.
I'm sure there are suggestions on the site, but I didn't find any after a few searches.
Any recommended scales with URL's for me to check out?

I personally use this one: https://smile.amazon.com/American-Weigh ... B0012LOQUQ

Since it is compact, sturdy, and a bit more sensitive than others. Some people swear by the 600 series (which goes out one decimal place).

Perfect. Thank you so much. I ordered the 100g, 0.01 sensitivity one. It does not appear many MM's exceed 100g.

Yeah, for the most part they stay below 100 (there are a few outliers but typically if they hit over 100 you know which one they are, like Venom from the new Spiderman set or Maui from Moana).

That's the scale I use, as well, and it saved me with this set! I just found it today while cleaning things off my dining room table, and got all excited and set it aside (easily findable!) knowing that series 2 is coming!
