ordered the 2023 advent calendar from amazon the other day. hopefully this one arrives in better shape than last years.

only 6 new minis from what i could tell, and nothing from series 24 which is disappointing.

Once again, I appreciate the heads up as I never seem to know if they’re officially done with the minis or not. What’s the significance of series 24, sun? Is there some from that you don’t have yet?

hey, reivax,

i was surprised to see it, too. the guy on twitter i follow hasnt posted an update since october last year, so i thought they were done and dusted.

series 24 has never made it to nz, so i only have a couple from last years advent calendar. i refuse to pay nearly $300NZD to import a single box from the uk.

well, color me impressed! i checked the tracking, and it was marked as delivered. sure enough, it was on the front step. 4 days from america to new zealand. that is mindblowing.

reivax, if you buy one, can you please post a photo of the chrome percy face? my one looks really odd.

I’ll be buying one soon. I’ll post a pic of the Percy. I’ll take note of series 24 when I wander around stores. I still see the most random series floating around each store I go in to. I’m certain there are series 24 boxes around here.

thanks, that would be good. if you find a full set of 24, that would be amazing.

two new boxes of minis at the supermarket, the ones with the clear windows in front, and the price has increased .50c. i picked up edward just to have an example of one, and will snag a box when they empty enough

Yeah, I got a couple clear package ones for the collection as well.

Here’s the face of the new advent Percy I got.

thanks for that. yours is marginally better than mine. neither are close to the face shown on the box.

ok, i caved and ordered a box of s24 from an ebay seller in the UK. the box arrived pretty quickly, and i set to going through it. it appears the pandemic did a number on distribution more than we realised.

there were 48 bags in the box, as there should be. normally, that would 2 per bag of almost all characters, and then a single or two due to the exclusive.

i laid the bags out in numerical order and pulled up the wiki page. not a single code i had matched the wiki site even remotely. one number i had 5 or 6 bags of! that turned out to be classic thomas. i did not complete one single set out of the box. my set is missing 3, and a second set is missing 5. not sure how many more partial sets i can make, too tired to try right now.

i did have a mini panic with the codes as the one listed for the metallic james was not in my case. i eventually found it, and then struck gold with a second! i opened the second as i thought my eyes were playing tricks. i was looking through the white parts of the bag to see who was in so i didnt go opening all of them.

so now i am searching ebay for the missing 3, and will resort to asking the multi-pack sellers if they have the codes i think i need.

You can take the Mini's from the Store shelves...
But you can't take the Mini's out of the hands of an Old Collector. 😁
