Cryptozoic has a new line of collectable toys called Cryptkins. The 2.5 inch Vinyl blind box series features beasts of legend. Cryptkins are cute versions of mythical creatures like Bigfoot, Chupacabra, and Nessie. To celebrate the new series Cryptozoic ran an online contest and I was lucky enough to be one of the random winners.
They do exist! The subject of folklore and tabloid headlines for decades, Cryptkins have been discovered and the world will never be the same!
I got a blind box and some coins for the Quidd App. Each blind box contains a Cryptkin and bio card with habitat information. There are 10 characters and 2 rare versions plus an ultra rare figure for a total of 13. I cannot find how common or rare each one is.
The packaging resembles a wooden crate with air holes. The sides are stamped “Caution live shipment” and the back has a checklist with the rare versions blacked out.
And I got one of the rare Cryptkins ..Phoenix!
The Cryptkins are 2.5″ or slightly larger than a mini-figure.
Cryptkins have a release date of March 15 and a suggested retail of $5.99. Cryptozoic also makes the DC Lil’Bombshell figures and various DC trading cards and Deck building games.
Quidd is an App, where you can collect digital figures, trading cards, and stickers.
And now the Phoenix in the wild!
Will you be hunting for these?

Groove Bricks reports that Target will have a Hobbit DVD/blu-ray pack with an exclusive Bilbo Baggins mini-fig. So I know where I’ll buy my Hobbit Blu-Ray set. Now do I wait and buy in store or preorder? The release date is March 19. A week later the Empire Strike Out Dvd will be released with an exclusive Darth Vader mini-fig.
Groove Bricks post.
Also this week Target has a few LEGO sets on sale. The Spider-Man’s Spider-Cycle set, Superman vs. Power Armor Lex Luthor set, Batman Arctic freeze set, and Star Wars AT-RT set are $18.00 each. These sets are usually 19.99. It’s only 10% off but since I was already there so I picked up a set rather than use my LEGO VIP card. There maybe other sets on sale. When I checked the weekly ad online they didn’t show up. But they showed up on a Google shopping search.
I checked Target’s Easter section. Their seasonal polybag is the same as they had for valentine’s day. It is Winzar’ pack patrol from Legends of Chima.
The mini-fig was posted here, Winzar’s Pack Patrol
Updates: The Droid Escape set also shows up as a temporary price cut.
I just got back from Target the temporary price cut sign on the sets said 3/3-3/16 so there’s a little time to grab some of these sets. Now I just need to sell a bunch of prints so I can get these sets and DVDs.
There was a 19.99 LEGO City fire truck for $18. The Easter section had a Friends polybag and the KRE-O GI Joe figs.
