Yeah, I'm liking this guy more than I should. :lol: :lol: The really really need to make Boo Berry and Yummy Mummy. Maybe a 3rd figure to get Fruit Brute.

My only real nit is the sides, top and bottom of the cereal boxes are just plain white. I'm absolutely going to find pics of them all and putting them on.

Got Franken Berry today. He really looks great. I've got a few nits, though. He should be taller than he is compared to the Count. His shoes aren't painted right, and I think the chains could have been done better. I've got some tiny chains I may swap them out with. Still, despite my nits, as I said, he really looks awesome.

One very cool feature is his drop down legs. At first I thought there wouldn't be any forward or back movement, but move them down and they have great motion.

To anyone else who has these, how does the leg articulation feel? I just picked up Count Chocula & he's an absolute marionette below the waist. I'm super disappointed, he can hardly stand. I also picked up a couple of Jada's Universal Monsters & they're excellent, so I wonder if I just got a dud.

Yeah, their legs are a bit weak. Franken Berry has fallen down twice on me.

Here's a couple of fun shots. Oh, I took high-res pictures of all 4 sides of the real cereal boxes so I can shrink them and add them to the toy boxes.

I think everybody who has these in hand, myself included, bought them at Meijer, a Midwest grocery/general store

Jealous of everyone who has these already! I have them on pre-order but now I'm hoping I see them in stores first.

I finally found Frankenberry today. Not as great as Count Chocula but def not bad. Suuuper weird neck ball joint, I get why they put it where they did but wish the hole in the head was a bit deeper. Love these figures, I hope we get Boo Berry and the retired monsters. I love these two.

I just found these in store after totally forgetting about them. Lucked out and had a $5 off coupon at Meijer so I got them for $15 each. I really love these guys. Only issue I have is the insanely difficult-to-remove heads and that neck joint that feels and sounds like it's going to snap anytime I move it. Will have to fix these issues.

Took me a while to notice the mural on the side of the boxes which gives me much more hope they will make more than these 2 figures. I don't see them going through the trouble of that for just 2.

Meijer had them at a regular price of $20 or were they marked down/ on clearance?

$20 is the regular price. Only place I've seen not charging $25. I've only seen the actual figures in 1 store, but I have seen the shelf stickers for them are the same at all stores.

General Mills is putting Frute Brute cereal back in stores, I assume for Halloween time - maybe a harbinger of an action figure...?

I hope we get something--Booberry at the very least. I was surprised (not really) we didn't hear anything at SDCC. Fingers crossed the show ain't over.

Really hoping they finish these out. Only three characters!

Anyone know of a way to get these to stand more effectively?

Found the cereal, I would really like if we got Boo Berry and Frute Brute, even Yummy Mummy. Loving the cereal, i'd definitely buy toys from it.

BTW there is a promo where you can get little KAWS figures if you get the cereal, just put in the code every day. I won a set, super excited to get them as it will be my first Boo Berry merch lol.
