Magic Box: Muppets Minimates Series 2
A very big thank you to Diamond Select Toys for sending litlgeeks and MUReview these fantastic Muppets Series 2 Minimates to look at. They are all fantastic, and at least one falls under my personal category of favorite Minimate ever! Even better…we’re going to give some of these away, so check back often. For now, let’s see what the litlgeeks thought. Scroll down to see what I thought, and It’s time to light the lights!
Kermit (Reporter) / Rowlf The Dog
- Adorable trench coat.
- Microphone fits well in Kermits hands.
- Kermits hat looks great!
- Diamond Select Toys absolutely nails Rowlf, he looks Muppet perfect.
- Excellent scale / sizing.
- Adorable doggie face.
- Very cleverly implemented ears.
Doctor Teeth / Animal
- Brightly colored.
- Another perfectly captured Muppet character in Minimate form, right down to the gold in his mouth.
- The hat makes the man!
- Animal wins Minimates for me. Marvel, Aliens, Alice, Turtles, Animal wins all.
- This is the coolest headpiece on a Minimate ever, the hair, the chain, amazing.
- Drum sticks fit perfectly in his hand.
- This is Mini Animal! NO DRUM!
Statler and Waldorf
Statler and Waldorf
- That’s right, I’m going to talk about them both together. They are both great, but essentially the same figure, so everything really applies to both.
- Their suits are screen perfect.
- Their grumpy faces convey exactly that, to a ‘t’.
- The only thing missing is the balcony, but if you get the Muppets Select version, it comes with that!
Crazy Harry / Mahna Mahna
- Crazy Harry is a fantastic, simple, understated Minimate.
- While understated, he once again is captured perfectly in Minimate form.
- Face design is dead on with the character. Crazy Harry is defined by his eyes and DST kills it here, perfect.
- Good luck…you read his name, now the song is stuck in your head forever.
- Another brightly colored, perfectly replicated muppet… Mahna Mahna.
- Muppets Series 2 carries the Muppet Minimate flag forward in every way. Excellent character selection, incredible execution, result in a toy series that anyone should be thrilled to own.
