Same here, saw a fresh box last night and was able to pull Buzz, Ariel, Ursula, Syndrome, Hook, and Pan. The mainstays like Mickey and Minnie are hard to feel for me. Ursula is super easy, it's generally the thickest pack. I found buzz by feeling the round hollow helmet piece.

I've found them at four Wal-Marts in central Georgia. Got three Malificents and two Ursulas, both of which are super easy to feel for. I accidentally got a Minnie looking for an Alice, and a Mr. Incredible looking for Aladdin. I should've spent more time but workers kept walking by and looking at me, haha. I'm really looking for Alice, Aladdin, and Ariel so if anyone has any feel tips please share. I'm terrible with kinesthetics and can typically never feel these things right, haha.

I managed to find only a few at a Berea Walmart. There wasn't many left. I picked out a few that I wanted... Malificient, Ursula, Pan and Alice. Still looking for Hook, Stitch and Aladdin.

Anyone knows how to get a box in Toronto, Canada?

For the first time, I would like to get a box of the minifgs series.

I would try Bricklink (www.bricklink.com) or Amazon, the later would probably be the better

For me (accurately buying the right minifigs since series 2) the key has always been a lot smaller scale--see which accessory the character you want is holding. Most sets don't have many duplicates.

This time around it still holds true; Alice has a pretty unique bottle, Aladdin has a lamp and Ariel has both a seashell and a round 1x1 piece. If you can't find the accessory piece shake the bag a bit and see if you can isolate it to one corner. There are several without accessories like Stitch and the Mickey, etc. If you don't find any accessories you may be holding one of those, and I think you'll be able to tell them apart by which have round ears and which are longer (stitch).

Takes some practice but I haven't bought a minifig I didn't intend since I started back in series 2 once I realized the accessory was easier to isolate. Don't worry about the employees, I tell them I'm trying to guess which is which. TRU employees are usually more understanding and sometimes will ask if you can find them a specific one; happy hunting!

Double check. Most walmarts I've been to have gotten two boxes. I was able to get two unopened cases off the shelf and get a complete set from another box. Huge Disney fans in the family and friends. Still need one more complete set, going to use six extra from one box to trade at the May 16 Nashville store and hit another box up for the remaining six at my local Walmart this evening.

Walmart UPC - 067341925186

Dunno Target, and have no plans to purchase from them.

Like a previous poster stated: Most Walmarts (and TRU's) will get at least 2 if not more boxes (at least on the initial shipment). It's Disney so I would expect even more, but who knows. Each box has 3 complete sets plus 6 "extras". So buying a full box if you are looking for multiple complete sets is the way to go IMO. At least that is my plan. Usually I hunt/peck for specific figs until I find a sale. In this instance, paying full price might be worth it, as I think this series will be constantly sold out and very picked through.
I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.

Bought a few from a mostly full box at Virginia Walmart.

Lego.com is showing as "Sold Out" now.

Had my local Walmart run the UPC. 50 listed in stock, nothing on the shelf. They said they're constantly getting stolen.

Wow, I didn't realize that Walmart sold CMFs. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for them

Two fresh boxes at Walmart. I grabbed one for myself (54, not sure it was the original number in it). Pulled almost 2 full sets (only got one Buzz and one Chesire Cat)

I'm really disappointed they didn't put "Eat Me" on Alice's mini-cake. :mrgreen: They put "Drink Me" on the bottle tough.

True story. I used to grab the entire box when a new set of CMF's came out and take it to the register. Almost always the clerk would just scan the bottom of the box and it rings up as $3.97. I've always had to remind them to scan them individually. They've finally started ripping the tops off the box so the clerks can see it is individual items, not just one.

That and of course these are always found on the shelves ripped open and looted as well. Toys R Us and Walgreens started putting them in security boxes. Walmart hasn't done this at any location I've seen yet. I really wish they would start. These sets are now coming out in a much more limited number than before and thievery is causing them to dry up quicker than they would otherwise.

I asked someone at my local walmart to scan one of the packages and she showed nearly 200 in stock, but only like 20 left on the shelf. She was nice enough to check in the back for me and came out with the box sealed inside a Lego cardboard shipping box with the "Do not put on shelf before may first" sticker on it. Awesome customer service!

I bought it and brought it home. Now I just need to decide if i really need 238.20$+tax worth of Disney Lego minifigs...

Thank you so much! This greatly helped. I managed to get an Ariel and Alice yesterday and got excited by the lamp I felt and didn't browse the rest of the bag, so got saddled with a Genie instead of an Aladdin but I'll take it.
