So, there does not seem to be any actual policy, or at least one that she was able to articulate, but be aware if you go there that you may not be able to get what you want. I was very annoyed and to top it off, of the 5 I did purchase 3 were the same one (watermelon).

Off to find a retailer that actually wants my money...

I think they started to limit the amount you could buy because their stock started to get really low. I think there were at least 4-5 cases in the stock cabinet below and 2 opened cases on the table on Friday.

Since a pic of the other 2 Mystery figs were posted: Flocked and GID Spiderboom, I've updated my pic with the 3rd Mystery Spiderboom unblurred.

Hi! Here are a couple sites that someone posted on David's blog. www.myplasticheart.com

www.giantrobot.com

Also Tenacious Toys are selling them, not sure if they're on the website yet.

For the not-so-new-anymore-but-still-hopelessly-naive-newbie, what does "flocked" mean?

A suede like texture on the surface. Feels furry. XD

I ordered four blind boxes. I am hoping for the best as we've been lucky lately. These are so adorable!

Uh-oh... looks like there is a 4th Mystery Spiderboom that might be even rarer than all the others. See Erik Nakamura's GR blog (link below). He posted a pic of it there.

Yep! Noella is correct... I do have a Clear Smokey Spiderboom.
See the group pic of my Spiderbooms in this thread.
And I am not the only one too... at least one other person I know has one.
I'm gonna have to take a close up pic of mine and post it.

Now I really need to get one of those Clear ones!

=) David even used my pic of the box art and put it on his blog.

This is the perfect next step in the D+SM universe. I love these, and they're perfect for those kids/collectors who feel like they need to get every one. (raised on Pokemon?)

Can't help you out right now (we are having a really hard time keeping these little guys in stock!), but we should have some re-stocks coming in either tomorrow or wednesday (latest). :)

Nope... there are 4 Mystery Spiderbooms. David posted on his blog with a pic of them. There are 16 Spiderbooms in the set (12 regular and 4 mystery).
1) Flocked
2) GID
3) Smokey Clear
4) Clear

From what I can tell the Flocked and GID seem to be the most common of the chases; Smokey Clear slightly rarer and the Clear might be the hardest to get.
