  • Classic Minis - who is getting them?

    I think they are a little overpriced but I'll end up getting them.

    I'll pass. I think they will be good for bringing in younger fans though. Would be a nice way to introduce MOTU to a new generation.

      I'm on the fence about them. They feel so overpriced at $20, even with the build-a-castle pieces.

        Probably I'll pass on them as well, unless if they go on sale or I'll find them discounted somehow.

          I'm passing on them. I really do not need another Matty line to aggrevate me. I'm assuming that they are a Matty line of course...

            Certainly not.

              No, and for two words....Masterpiece Transformers. With all that is coming this year, I sometimes wish I didn't sub for MOTUC, I actually am well more excited for the MP Transformers than I am for MOTUC, I've waited for 30 years for both lines, but now that there are fully articulated G1 accurate figures....I can think of nothing more amazing, MOTUC are just figures....cool and I love them, but standard Action Figures nothing more.... MP Transformers....Transform, and do it so damn accurately and are for the first time fully articulated. So, no, passing on these way too small for the price fails. If they were the original size as the SDCC ones....I'd consider them, but as they are....no.

              MOTUC before MP Soundwave and the 280Z bros was my first love, Transformers second, now....it's reversed.

                  No mini weirdoes for me ! I don't like silly characters or super deformed MOTU characters. And even if I did, I'd be repulsed by the bigger SDCC mini-masters vs. the now smaller mini-masters. One more epic fail from Mattel design and Mattycollector !

                    It's ironic how Scott even tried to bash Bandai's Thundercats line - on a RGD episode - due to the change in scales. At least Bandai is able to produce proper fitting armor and female leotard bottoms.

                      I guess it depends on who is made. I'd grab a Battleground Teela mini-masters to put on my desk. But that might be the only one I get. I wouldn't collect them as a line.

                          I like the idea of mini figures, but I don't like the cartoony proportions of the Mini Masters. I'd rather just smaller, less articulated versions of Classics figures.

                            Yes I'm getting 2 sets. One MIB & the other to open that my kids will enjoy. I told my youngest boy they were coming out next month. He said he's very excited to see how Mer Man looks.

                              I like Mer-Man, but I don't know if $20 is worth spending just for him. I wish they sold these at stores for kids instead to get the brand name out there.

                                I completely understand what you're saying. They are expensive but at the same time my kids enjoy them & there isn't anything MOTU in stores for them to enjoy. They like the vintage & 200x figures but they just enjoy the weird style that they're in.

                              For me, this is an easy pass. This feels more like an item for younger kids. If they sneak in smaller characters like Imp that could go with my MOTUC collection, I might buy a few, but that's about it.
