who are Mighty Muggs aimed at? you would think small children, but action figures with small parts are for ages 4+ and Mighty Muggs are suitable for children 6+. I don't get it. and what the hell is "recycled awesome?" is there some meaning behind Mighty Muggs that they aren't describing on the package that I am missing?
It's this whole "designer vinyl figure" toy craze that's going on. It's a collector thing, primarily, but as far as I can tell it's not usually your normal run of the mill action figure collector that's into this type of stuff. It's a bit more of an artsy/urban type of thing.
I don't dislike them (I mean, vinyl figures in general) but I'm just not interested in collecting another line when there's so much new stuff coming out, not to mention a TON of vintage stuff I still need to acquire. I don't need to have GI Joe "other stuff" (ie: posters, etc) when there's so many actual action figures and vehicles out there. How much shelf space to people have after all?

These aren't for all tastes. They're a great mash-up of urban design, retro, and a variety of licenses. And the price is much better than most "designer" toys. I have most of the Muggs so far, and I love them. My self looks great with Indy next to Han Solo next to Captain America.
Great description, could not agree more. So far I have the SW waves (MM) and will get the joes one and perhaps a few transformers. Right now I have my kidrobot gorrilaz next to my iron man and gree MM that I got at SDCC. It is cool to display them. I am glad that we are getting these and already pre ordered mine as well as the combat heros, more Joe stuff to enjoy IMO.

think of it like this mighty muggs are like a blank canvas and you paint on them....hasbro has opted for comic characters....in the urban art world it would not be somethign that is licensed, artist would do something that they wanted...like a painter or artist drawing on paper...but the paper is this figure.....look into and ull see that this type of of "collectable" trend is huge and is very sought after and can go way up more in price than any figure...cuz these are considered art.
