I don't like that they are based on Minimates. If they were 100% newly designed figures, I would definitely be interested.
I'm not too keen on this either. I have the universal monsters minimates, and they feel cheap and kind of crappy. They come apart, don't balance well and their parts can get in the way. The appeal of minimates is they're little versions of things you know.
Making completely original designs on a toy that really is mostly a parody does concern me.
I do love the papo mutants, they're 4-5 inch solid figures, they're anthropomorphic warriors, more a medieval theme, though the gorilla is a a cyborg.
So I'm interested in a new line of animal warriors with possibility.
