These look absolutely great. Platform toys like Dunny and Qee can be real nice, but I always love seeing new sculpts with mini figures. I'm going to check tomorrow to see if Robot Love here in Minneapolis will be getting them in.

Who else is really looking forward to getting their hands on these?

my wife just pulled a School Girl outta a blind box - question: on th ebox it sez the ratio is 2/20 - but on the character card inside it shows a color variant of whats on the box and lists it as a 1/20 - mistake or rare?

I'm guessing she's a rare variant. i noticed a similiar thing with the little old lady. one figure says 1/20 and the other says 2/20.

ok, I got the case and the box is HUGE. I was surprised. Anyway, the only ones that I didn't get are the chase school girl (black face) and the chase city maid (brown shirt). The only extras that I have are a blue face school girl, air freshener, the poet, egg keeper, the boss, and beggar - all common ones, it seems. More or less, the figures are laid out in the box like they are pictured on the front of the case (not the individual boxes) starting with the blind tea lady in the front right spot and moving left...so, if anyone comes across an fresh case, you might get lucky and get the rares that way.

So do we know definitively how many of these (including colour variants) there are? I got two different Jellycats in my case, the regular magenta with green eyes (called Maa on the card) and a black one with pink eyes (Gemm). The black one was in the fourth row down extreme right position in the case.
Is the "little old lady" that Playdoh is referring to the City Maid?

What an AMAZING set these are!!!!

I don't know that there's anything official yet, but from what I've seen so far, there are 3 chases...the maid, the jellycat, and the schoolgirl.

Here is my case...not all accessories shown and some of my doubles aren't opened, but you get the jist.

heh, not surprising...not sure if these are supposedly randomly packed or not. i did just notice that the hair color on my 2 blue faced school girls is 2 different shades of purple.

It's interesting that so many of us seem to have Blind Tea Ladies (1/80) and doctors (?/??) in our cases - are we just really lucky, or are the numbers all mixed up again?
For the folks that got the Schoolgirl and Maid chase variants, where in the cases were they located?

My case had the Dr., the City Maid in Pink, and the Schoolgirl with Black Face along the bottom row, next to the red Jellycat.

I was fortunate enough to get the Tea Lady and Glassblower in blind boxes, so my set is complete and I am a happy guy.

I also got an extra pink City Maid and Schoolgirl with Black Face (and doubles of all the comons, of course), and would trade for something interesting. My Nathan J collection is small, and I need old Hazmapos and a Thundermutt 1.0 too - pm me if you have anything to trade.

Steven

In two cases, I got doubles of all figures apart from the Blind Tea Lady, Glassblower and the alternate colourway of the Schoolgirl and City Maid.

The Blind Tea Lady and alternate Schoolgirl were both in the front right hand corner, and the alternate City Maid was next to The Doctor- instead of the Glass Blower.

The cases seem to be pretty random as far as the front row goes though, as I know someone else that got a case that had two alternate Schoolgirl figures and an alternate City Maid- but no Blind Tea Lady, Glass Blower or Doctor.

...I was lucky enough to get myself a second Glass Blower (blind) from the City Folk exhibition in Melbourne last Saturday, which I got signed and sketched on by Nathan!!! :rock:

Weird, I didn't get a card in the one I picked up today :(

I only have the one (girl with the owl in her hair) and am looking for the rest. Let me know if you have extras you'd like to sell or trade!

Thanks :)

Out of the front row of a new box today, I pulled the Dr., Glass Blower, reg edition Jellycat, and Blind Tea Lady. Good score!

Now I just need Air Freshener, Boss, Egg Keeper, and the beggar. Shouldn't be too hard.

Also, not sure if this is obvious to everyone or not, but the Jellycat's shell can be removed to reveal the delicacy underneath. Pretty sweet!

awesome! good score indeed!!!!

that's the best the cases get i think, though those cases don't have the alt. city maid or alt. schoolgirl in them which are usually in the front row of cases as well.

I've bought two cases of cityfolk figures and haven't got a tealady a doctor or a glassblower. I have however got 10 school girls black and blue. Needless to say i'm a little more than dissapointed in the nature pf "randomness" in the blind box when in almost every row i got two doubles. Example: First row: Schoolgirl(blue),Schoolgirl(black),Schoolgirl(blue),Schoolgirl(black). I don't care about a different colored face. I just want different figures.

Wow- I can understand your disappointment!
However, in Kidrobot's defence, I have only heard of one other person getting a similar case, as I posted above, though there was an alt. City Maid in the front row, which seem to be one of the rarest figures.
