Each week we get our hands on some of the coolest toys around. This year's Toy Fair is currently underway and as we await news on the new products coming out, we thought we'd take a look at a line from just a couple years ago: The Mighty Muggs from Hasbro.
Mighty Muggs are basically super-deformed versions of your favorite characters. Because it was from Hasbro, they had the luxury of putting out lines from the different franchises they held the rights to. Besides the seven waves of Marvel (plus various exclusive figures and some Mini-Mugg waves) there was also nine waves from Star Wars (plus more exclusives and a Mini-Mugg wave), two waves from Indiana Jones (plus some exclusives), three waves from G.I. Joe and three waves from Transformers (plus some exclusives).
They stand at just over 6" (with the Mini-Muggs about half the size) and they are full of cuteness. They are almost hard to resist. The good news is, Hasbro will be putting out some more waves. We'll have to wait on the full details this week. Norm and I pooled our collections together to give you guys a look at how simple and cool these guys are.== TEASER ==
The packaging is pretty simple.
Check out the Mini-Muggs. Some aren't as crazy about these as the full size ones. They almost come across as being even cuter. If you went to San Diego Comic-Con last summer, you might have seen the Mini-Avengers set with a regular sized Giant Man Mighty Mugg (guess who's kicking themselves for not picking it up?)
You can also see an example of the exclusive waves (Mini-Bounty Hunters from Star Wars).
Of course when Hulk is around, you can always expect trouble.
That's it for this week. How many Mighty Muggs do you own? Be sure to look for the next installment of Awesome Toy Picks.
