Title: NECA TOY CAPSULE UNIVERSAL MONSTERS TRINKETS
Post by: Anton Phibes on August 08, 2021, 01:13:39 PM
Available at Wal mart. Not sure as to what an "entire collection" would consist of, as there isn't a checklist I am aware of.

Breakdown: 9 balls in a bag. $9.99.

I bought one for the heck of it, and will give them out at Halloween to my nephews. This blind lot consisted of: Dracula sticker, Dracula shoe laces, Dracula Key chain, Wolfman mini embroidered patch, Bride of Frankenstein eraser, Frankenstein head key chain, Frankenstein rubber wrist band, Mummy logo metal pin, Creature mini magnet. Good luck and happy hunting thrill seekers.

I'll just wait till they turn up, individually, on eBay and buy the Creature stuff.  ;D

One has to wonder, how much product in how many different categories was produced? IE...are there a set number of say 9 categories, and each monster get s a product in said category...or is it all just random hodge podge? Gonna make collector's heads explode methinks,lol. :blank: :blank: :blank:

These are great for Halloween Party prizes.

Those really are great Halloween prizes and they certainly seem cheap enough to give away with some candy. Much better than just handing out sweets and if I was a child I'd be really happy with these.

Where are these located at WM?

In the "collectibles' section (in electronics) at the location I frequent.

Thank you!  No luck at my store, but they still don't even have any Franks.

Today's kids would get these in their Halloween bucket and say, "who is this?".

And then they get online looking up info about the old monsters and become fans  ;)

Of everything out right now, I think I am most excited about these.  Holy cow...  Wish I could find them!  If anyone finds them online (for retail), let me know.

If anyone buys a bag, compare it to Anton's, because other people seem to be reporting that the bags contain like contents.  It would be interesting to know.  Disappointing news if true, but good to know.

Found some at Walmart yesterday. I grabbed a few bags. I opened one. I think they're pretty fun. Only $4 a bag. I'm down.

Are those near the trading cards or in the collectibles section... and why do they appear to be on clearance?   :o

Just found some today at the local WM here in York, PA. A lot of the capsules were open in the bags so I could see the contents. Looks like all the same items as Antons.
Picked up a bag for myself either way!

Yes, in the collectibles section. Not sure why the clearance price.

Okay, I will keep looking in electronics.  For some reason, I never see the other stuff in the pics in my collectibles section, so I wanted to make sure they weren't putting them elsewhere at some locations.

Walk all around the Electronics area. They put stuff on shelves all over the place.

Good suggestion!  My store are just abysmal though.  They get things in three months after the fact.

The shoe laces are about 31 inches long, so you are going to need to tie a pair together to use them in an adult sized shoe. I am glad I bought two sets.

Just as  disappointing as the first bag🙁.    Who picks the graphics that go on thiese items?  Some still look like early 2000s style guide images.

Some Walmarts dont carry "adult collectibles".  Neither of my local Walmarts do.😕

Here is a picture of all the second edition items. There are a couple of "top shelf" items in the mix (I like Dracula pin & patch, as well as the Mummy keychain), but most of the stuff is the calibre of old Cracker-Jack prizes. Pretty cool, overall; but $5 would be a more realistic price-point.

The front side of the bag prominently features the Creature, just as the First Edition Frankenstein bag featured The Monster.
