Disney CMFs spotted in USA Targets

Posted by ,

The Disney Series of Collectable Minifigures is now starting to appear at Target stores in the United States; ahead of their official worldwide release on May the 1st.

Some people have even done video reviews of the series already, with a complete set of eighteen in their hands. For example, here's a video review with accompanying photos by just2good, who found them at a Target in Florida.

Read after the break for a handy guide to finding the series early! And stay tuned, because coming soon I shall be reviewing the whole series right here on Brickset!


Of course, it can usually be rather difficult to look for new sets before their street date hits. However, Brickseek is a very useful tool for finding out if local stores near you have received shipments of sets.

The DCPI code for the Disney Series is 204-00-1379. Copy this into the text box on the site, enter your zip code and then see the results. After checking, you might want to call ahead to make sure the store really has the minifigs, just in case. Be sure to ask them if the packaging is blue.

When you arrive at Target, you may need to ask staff to take the series out from the storage room if they aren't on the shelves yet. They may or may not sell you the figures early; some stores are lenient with the street date while others are not.

Also be sure to check out this post on Reddit for sightings.

Best of luck on your hunt!

Will Brickseek work for stores in the UK as well, or is it just a US thing?

I came across some in the City Target in downtown San Francisco, CA yesterday, for anyone in the bay area that is interested. I was able to price match them down from the listed price of $4.78 to $3.99, so please pressure Target into doing so to save money!

Someone on the Lego subreddit also confirmed they're on the floor in the Target in Emeryville, CA (east bay area).

Hope this info helps!

If my memory serves me correctly, the product number listed here is the same number target has been using for CMFs for a while. So while I do LOVE brickseek to hunt for sets, it isn't always the most useful when looking for figs. Note that if a store was previously wiped out of CMFs, but is currently showing some multiple of 60 in stock, then it's very likely you're looking at a new sealed box back in the store room. Which as mentioned previously... some folks are ok with breaking a street date, some are not.

Going to TRU tommorow, I really want Buzz, the Alien, Stitch, Donald Duck and Mickey!

I'm not good at feeling them out. When they pack the box they split them all up right? So if I grab 4 packs in a row they should all be different right?

Some tips for feeling the packages based on my experience so far:

As a general rule, first start by isolating the legs as a starting point. If they're short, you've narrowed it down quite a bit since only Stitch, Cheshire Cat and Pizza Planet Alien have short feet in this set. If it's a sloped triangular 2x2, it's Maleficent. If they're normal-sized and movable, feel for single unique pieces. Some examples:

-Ariel is among the easiest to tell, feel for the folding clamshell piece that's bendable in the middle.
-Ursula's trident, pretty obvious. She also has no legs piece in the bag.
-Hook's sword is a dead giveaway, as long as you can find it. His hat and hair are a single piece.
-Alice has a small 1x1 flat circle piece, a hard plastic frilly skirt piece and a smooth bottle.
-Buzz's wings are two separate somewhat trapezoidal pieces, and his curved helmet is separate from his armor. If you can stick the front of your finger into a somewhat tight rectangular space in the middle of a giant single object, that's probably his armor.
-Cheshire Cat is difficult. He has short legs and his head is similar to the Pizza Planet Alien's head, but more pointy all-around and lacks the narrow upward point on top.
-Aladdin has a lamp and normal-sized legs, Genie has a lamp and no leg piece.

I've had 100% accuracy following these guidelines so far, opening about 16 packages.

USA -> California -> Walnut Creek Target store employee reports that a customer grabbed *all* of the Disney and Series 15 figures and tried to stuff them behind products in another department to hide them. When confronted, he went ahead & took them to checkout. A large number of stores in the San Francisco East Bay region I checked today report hundreds of figures on the floor in inventory management, but there are none to few physically present. All are either sold & suspiciously not updated in the system, or stolen.

I saw this article and then immediately made an arrangement to go to Target after my wife picked me up when I got off work. I picked up 32 Disney CMFs (the friendly Target employee went to the storage in the back and found about a half dozen for me that weren't on the display). I'm still missing three, but excited that I got two Stitch CMFs!

THANKS for the heads up Brickset! :-)

Found some at two local targets. I was really surprised! Went back today to see if I could get a Mickey, and they were all gone, I think they realized it was too early for them. My favorite is Maleficent, not sure why but it's just very well depicted IMO

I have also found them at my local Target in Omaha, NE if anybody wanted to know. The target employee was just putting them out on the end cap display.

I live in Illinois, and I haven't seen them anywhere yet... Hopefully they're coming here soon!

SnappedTogether - which Omaha Target did you find them at? I found some in Bellevue last Monday.

None at either Allen Texas Targets this past weekend. The labels where the current series CMFs were located had been changed though to say "May Series".

Checked 4 Pittsburgh Targets today. 1 was sold out already, 2 didn't even have a spot for them, and 1 had two left. Scored the Genie and Daisy Duck.

My local target in Colorado had them out. About 30 to 40 there. Picked up 16 of the 18 in total could not find Daisy duck and Peter pan. Called 2 days ago said they had them but could not put them out until may 1st but someone did today lucky for me.

I picked mine up at my local Target in Pensacola, FL. One store had them but wouldn't sell them till May 1st. The other had 50 out. I got every figure except the little alien man. Great Minifigures, my first true complete collectable set!
