Spotlight On: Evilos’s Blind Bag Series 3

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Evilos’s popular Blind Bag Series is back for a third series! We recently talked to Evilos about what to expect and how and when you can purchase your blind bag.

Destination Vinylmation: What is the Blind Bag Series all about?
Evilos: First, thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about my latest project! It’s sites like yours that bring content most collectors would never get to read about to the Vinylmation community.

The Blind Bag Series is all about creativity, excitement and mystery! Creativity in the way of one of a kind customs by 21 artists from all walks of life. The artists were more than happy to donate customs to the project and tasked to create holiday themed customs for series three. The customs that have been sent in have blown me away.  Artists have really raised the bar this series.  I’m very proud to have them as a part of Blind Bags Series 3. We will be having a “Best Of Show” event that fans will vote on their favorite custom of the series. The winner will receive a Custom Evilos Trophy proclaiming that artist, “Blind Bags Artist of the Year”.

Artists will also be entered into their own separate raffle to win great prizes like figures and gift cards, just like we did last year, to say thanks for being a part of this project. The greatest joy for me is to give exposure to these great artists that may never get a unique spotlight to display their talents on this level. Blind Bags provides that outlet to them and many commissions have come out of being a part of my series.

Excitement is brought about in the way of cool prizes and side inserts like “The Puzzle Challenge”, which collectors will be challenged to complete a 12 piece puzzle. Each Blind Bags Series 3 box will contain one puzzle piece. There will be a total of 8 complete puzzles.  All the complete puzzles will have the same image making it possible to complete with some effort. Collectors will have the challenging task of collecting all twelve pieces to redeem a prize through buying, selling and trading for pieces. The first collector to send in a complete puzzle will win an Urban 1 complete set with cards. There will be seven other prizes for each completed puzzle sent in including 9″ one of a kind customs and other prizes such as gift cards to the Disney Store.

The mystery of not knowing what each box may contain in terms of figures and prizes makes Blind Bags even more exciting. There will be cool inserts from my personal collection like Park 1’s, Chasers, Variants and other various figures from retired series. There will be many great one of a kind customs including:  9″ customs from John Ward, Javier Soto, Evilos & Gerald Mendez. Blind Bags Series 3 offers a fan something very unique to this hobby, which at this time has not been offered anywhere else. It’s truly the dream product for any Vinylmation fan!

DV: What can people expect from BB3?
Evilos: Each box will have 5 figures, which will include 1 Custom & 4 Random Figures, One puzzle piece, One promo pack of artist business cards that may contain other “Prizes” such as pins or gift cards. What will you get?

DV: How much does a blind bag cost?
Evilos: Price: $100 (USA) Shipping Included

DV: How and when can people purchase a bag?
Evilos: Boxes will be sold Friday September 21st @ 9am (PST)/ 12noon (EST) on the Blind Bags 3 website. There will be a strict limit of two boxes per address. These will sell out fast!

  • I can’t wait for these to go on sale. BB3 really amazing work from the artists. I just contacted Celeste to make one of her custom 3″ for me. I saw it on the BB3 web site and had to have it. I’m still planning on buying atleast one BB but I thought my 100 to 1 odds where not good enough. I really like this idea, I love to see what artist can do. I check evilos sight just about every day to see if more of the pictures of the art work for BB3 is up. I really can’t believe what the artist are coming out with. Great work. Like the one with the bubble gum or the hand sticking out of the head, just great. I want them all

    • Thanks Robert for the kind words about the project, I put 100’s of hours into it and the artists really have stepped up in Series 3. All the customs are fantastic!

  • I bought in on series 2. Well worth the money. Had so much fun opening the figures. great custom figures along with rare and valuable chasers and varients

  • Just wanted to post an update, Blind Bags 3 is SOLD OUT. In just under 10 minutes all 100 boxes were exhausted from our inventory. I would like to thank Nick & MC for their support, all the artists involved and the very supportive fans. Still lots of work ahead but can’t wait to release more info on the series over the next few weeks for the luck ones who were able to purchase. Thank you.
