Part of my problem with this is... I just don't "get" Minimates, or the Mighty Muggs for that matter. (And I DO like stuff like Robot Heroes.) But I don't get the appeal of these things at all. I don't understand what they're supposed to be. They're just these...things... that are painted up to look like other things. My first thought would be that I'm getting old and not "with it", but these items appear to be aimed at my age group.
