    If every character is made within a reasonable timeframe, then yes.

    Not sure how big of a market exists for 'em, but since I already own and enjoy several Marvel, DC, and LotR Minimates, personally I say BRING 'EM ON!

    I'd actually MUCH prefer to see good mini Battle Scale Figures done instead. About the same scale as the botched Mattel ones, but conceptually like the LotR: Armies of Middle Earth figures. That way we could get all the characters, giants, vehicles, beasts, castles, environments and so on in scale and fairly affordable.

    Can you imagine the battle scenes??!!

    If McDonald's somehow got back its MOTU license then I'll continue with those.

    I hate these style of figures. The things I like most about my toys are good, accurate sculpts. So I always get cranky when some of my favorite licenses (Futurama, Pulp Fiction) get picked up and these are all that is made.

    Of course, that wouldn't be the case with MOTU but I still won't go anywhere near them.

    I just want small MotUs in Imaginext or Armies of Middelearth style. Everything else can't add enough coolness to the brand for me.

    Let's see, what else can the 4H get away with in their contract? Christmas Tree ornaments, cake toppers, fridge magnets, candles, erasers, pencil sharpeners, pencil toppers, night lights, air fresheners, etc..

    I don't like the minimate so I won't buy some but I'm neutral here because if I would have been a fan of the minimate I would probably be happy to have MOTU minimate.

    Yes for me. For some reason these appeal to me.

    I dont like Minimates. Oh, they're cool enough, but nah. Funky little figures I dont need. Add to that if they had MOTU Minimates I may feel like I had to have them. And I dont want my collector nature sickness exploited to buy things I dont want. :P Kinda like the MOTU Hotwheels cars. Dangit.

    So Yeah, I'm saying I would not want them to make them so I wouldnt buy them. Kinda like the much cooler tiny guys they revealed at Comicon. Except those I want. Still hope they dont make them, to save me from my purchases.

    My 2012 sub is going to cost enough already.

    So here is my question. Would you want the armor painted on like older Mini-Mates, or actual removable pieces like the newer ones?...

    I had to vote "NEUTRAL".

    They are cute, but like the Polly Pockets I don't really have a use for them. I think the action features of an action figure would be more appealing for a child to play with than these. If they wanted to produce a child friendlier version of the MOTU property, I would rather they do something else.

    But, if they make them I might buy them to support our beloved MOTU. I guess I could make christmas ornaments outta them.

    I say make them affordable, then give us playsets, like Castle Grayskull and Snake
    Mountain, and make them both online and mass retail available, just so whoever can
    get everyone they want, and not have to miss their favorites. I personally think based
    on the lack of decent figures out there now....I mean of course you could buy Justin
    Beiber dolls instead.......but I myself prefer a decent variety, now Thundercats are back,
    more Transformers are always on the way, there is a new TMNT coming..now is a perfect time
    to get them out, I for one will buy 2 sets, one for me, and one for my son.

    I think along with say some mass release basic looking Classics with less detail of long released
    characters, like the 2 packs, but single releases, the Mini Masters would be a welcome sight at retail,
    and give me a decent affordable retro based line to get my son into, so he can say he grew up on
    He-Man and Transformers as well. Because as of now, until I am gone he is not touching my Classics,
    and they are way too expensive to buy just to give to a kid to destroy.

    Nope. Uki don't do the Mini-Mates.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
