So far we've only been able to find two new 8-packs, and two new 3-packs (I was thinking there might be three 3-packs like the release earlier this year). We haven't found any new blind bags yet. As usual, the minis are only available at WalMart here in the US.
Here is the list of characters the new Fall 2015 packages of Thomas minis contain:
THOMAS MINI 3-PACK #1:
Old School Spencer
THOMAS MINI 3-PACK #2:
THOMAS MINI 8-PACK #1:
Old School Salty

I actually don't have a whole lot to say about Series 4 Imaginext blind bags, lol. This time, they actually stuck in a couple of female figures, and the lack of female figures has been a complaint among toy bloggers in the past. But it was weird because for the first time Fisher Price split up the numbering on the blind bag codes, and made the two girls totally separate.
I just really love it when Imaginext makes the super quirky or unusual figures, or the clearly movie and TV inspired ones, and there just wasn't a whole lot of that this time around. However, the space monkey was a huge hit in our house and could possibly be based on Planet of the Apes.
There's often a sports player in each series, and this time there was both a basketball player and a boxer. Separately, there are also often extreme sports players, and it's interesting and awesome that they made this one, a snowboarder, a female.
There seems to always be an alien of some sort, despite the fact that they make an aliens series that is not blind-packed, so I always find those ones incredibly boring.
The witch is super cool! The witch face comes off with her hat a leaves just a regular green Imaginext figure face.
So, what do you think of Imaginext Series 4 blind bags? Not one of my favorites. We found the complete set at Target and it seemed to take forever to land in stores after seeing the initial rumblings online.
