CollectA Blind bag with AR App
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:08:31 PM »
Okay, just came across this one. Never heard of them before, but it looks cool. Not sure if this series is new, or when it was released, but it looks like a blind bag set of the mini figures that comes with a card. There is an App you can download to use and scan the card.
Once scanned, it will bring up the dinosaur in full animated form, pretty cool.
The animation is very basic, but it looks pretty good.So, anyone has or have tried this before? Are they only available in Europe ( I assume)?
Here is the link tot he Youtube  video

I did notice them on the Collecta website a while ago, but didn't think they were particularly interesting. I believe the figures are simply those from the mini sets that were commercialized in the previous years, so if you get the sets, or if you got them first time around, you don't need these blind bags. The app I think is a bit useless, frankly.

I absolutely can not afford to buy those blind bags. It is a waste of time and money already having the figures. In fact in a tablet (I do not have it) or in a computer can be observed dinosaurs in movement and in three dimensions.

I am satisfied with having the figures (and I have them) that are miniatures of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals very well achieved.

Obviously I will not buy them.

These are actually pretty cool. But clearly, i am not the only one here that hates blind packs! I refuse to order blind packs online because it is a huge waste of money! Great share though I have never seen those!

Well, those are kinda pointless if they are identical to the tube versions.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

A while back I started a thread on why blind bags are a scam: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3810.0

Especially if these only contain figures you can already get in the tubes, I say we shouldn't reward CollectA for marketing figures this way.

Do we know that that's all they are?

I guess we don't know for sure, but I think if there were new things in the blind bags we would have heard about it. I think CollectA would have made that a big deal and promoted it.
