not exactly, there are no brick building system with Minimates, it's just blocky action figures.

Very addictive blocky action figures that are compatible with LEGO and other blok lines. They've been going since around 2001.

They also have done a lot of stuff with them....

DC Comics (though sadly were halted by DC because they didn't sell well enough)
Marvel Comics and Movies (which has been their longest going line in the Minimates brand)
Lord of the Rings
Thundercats
Back to the Future (even did a few versions of the car)
Ghostbusters (both the movies and even the animated Real Ghostbusters)
The Walking Dead
Star Trek (all of the stuff, but mainly the Original Series)
Knight Rider
The Munsters
Universal Monsters
Tomb Raider
Battlestar Galactica (modern and classic)
Street Fighter
Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Rocky
Terminator 2

And aside from the upcoming TMNT, which I'm pumped for, Aliens, Kill Bill, and Pulp Fiction are also getting Minimates.

Here's a website that shows every single figure that's been made to date...

http://www.minimatedatabase.com/default.php

I actually have high expectations for the TMNT Minimates given how if you look at the Marvel Comics ones and how they evolved and became so detailed and awesome. Seriously, I gave up collecting Marvel Legends years ago because the Minimates are so much cooler with all kinds of classic looks for characters with options.

Here's a few really cool ones to show off what I mean....

Minimates are made by Diamond Select Toys, who also make the Marvel Select line. Minimates are over 10 years old. And it's main line is the Marvel line, though it had a brief DC line and LoTR lines, as well as some Knight Rider and Back To The Future stuff. They are excellent little figures and have a lot of detail. My favourite is the Deadpool and Wolverine one in wave 28 (Deadpool has a plethora of weapons, is highly detailed and comes with a second mask, with his actual head underneath, while Wolverine is just the best Wolverine minimate IMO)

AND YES! TMNT MINIMATES

looking at the existing Minimates, I don't see any appeal in buying these...but I guess I'll see how the TMNT ones look.

If you're a huge Disney fan, they also made some great Peter Pan ones.

I am a huge Disney fan, but Peter Pan just happens to be one of the movies/characters I don't like. If they made a series of classics (Mickey, Donald etc.) or a series of the princesses, than maybe I'd go for them.

As for Minimates in general, I just don't see the appeal of blocky figures.

The only big problem I have with series 2 is that Spike has no face printing and it looks bad , while the chucks don't look as good as they did before they have better posing options.

Hey all,

My series 2 are on the way, but I thought l'd post a couple shots I took from my series 1 minimates. I did pick up Shredder too, but I just photo'd the brothers. I intend to pick up April and some Foot clan in a couple months, when I have some extra cash.

Looking forward to messing around with my series 2 minimates!

Hope they make the LARP turtles in S4, along with stockman fly with mousers, Leatherhead, Tigerclaw and Dr. Tyler (monkey brains)Rockwell. Then maybe Renet for the exclusive to set up S5 with the space turtles! Even though a Metalhead would be so cool!

Working on Series 4 and 5 now, and they will at least partially cover Season 5.

We may also see the return of the highly sought-after Kraang.

It's not highly sought after. You just completely f'd it up to the point where only some of the people who wanted it could actually locate and purchase one at MSRP.

That's not high demand. That's extremely short supply. But thank you for giving me a reason not to collect your line. If you're going to take a terrible decision and rephrase it as HOT COLLECTOR ITEM! like it's something to be proud of, I'm done with you.

Don't even bother replying. Save your smug replies for the Multiverse.
