Curious if anyone else here collects Mighty Muggs? I picked up the Hulk before Christmas thinking that would be my only one, but like everything else I ended up wanting to get them all (the Marvel and G.I. Joe ones at least).
Not too many new ones out right now aside from the Iron Man 2 Toys R Us exclusive Iron Man/War Machine figures (which I can't find yet, can anyone help me out?).
Here's a few examples of Muggs if anyone hasn't seen them.
Odd timing... aren't these pretty much limited to exclusives now?
I picked up a few (I have the original Spiderman, a classic Optimus Prime, classic Starscream, and Vader that can switch his head), and I guess it's mainly riding on the big vinyl market. If they were smaller, I think I'd have collected more (as they're simple enough that you wouldn't lose anything by shrinking them), but they're a bit too big for me to start another collection. I have been sorely tempted by the Galactus, though.

I really had only picked up Hulk because I saw him in the clearance racks of Wal-Mart. So yeah, I think their time at the major chain stores is about over. Toys R Us still caries quite a few.

I've got a bunch that I keep at my cube at work: Hulk, The Thing, Captain America, The Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Indiana Jones. I also have Jigsaw, but he's still in the box, sitting on a shelf in my closet.
I'd still like to get Darth Vader, Wolverine, Thor, Spider-Man (black costume), and Iron Man. Maybe Snake Eyes, too. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. when I saw him once at Wal-Mart.
It's a shame that these didn't really take off, as there are other characters that I'd love to get in Mighty Mugg form (Nightcrawler and Colossus, among others).

I've got Megatron; Darth Vader; and Cobra Commander. My 1980's Axis of Evil.

Just Galactus. Wanted to collect more but don't see them anymore in stores.

I picked up all the Indiana Jones ones (minus the last 2 exclusives), and another handful of other random ones I liked. I agree that they're spiffy, but I don't have the room for them at all.

Just picked up a Thor and a Dr. Doom for $20 from a guy who had a lot on eBay. Thor was incredibly difficult to find cheap so I'm pretty happy about that.
This is my collection... I'm hoping to build shelves for my trades and HCs at some point and put them on display along the top: Spider-Man, Spider-Man (black), Iron Man, Captain America, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Hulk, Human Torch, Thing, Vision, Ghost Rider, Silver Surfer, Punisher, Jigsaw, Red Skull, Thanos, Galactus, Doctor Octopus, Skrull, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Destro, Storm Shadow, Duke, Baroness, and Darth Vader.

I've been posting pictures in the DVD & Blu-Ray "bought" threads for years with some Muggs in them. I don't even think they make these things anymore. My favorite collectibles now are the Eaglmoss lead figures. I love how highly detailed they are & that they are small so I can put them anywhere.
I have a lot more (I gave that Wolverine one away because I always hated Wolverine). My favs are still the Iron Man, & Cap, and also the Henry Jones.
I found this thread today and decided to bump it to see if anyone is still collecting these. I have been scouring ebay and amazon the past few days and have picked up over 50 different characters. I had a few muggs before and a few mez-its characters as well but for some reason decided to go all out and get me some more before these babies really become hard to come by at a decent price.
Here is a pic of the Star Wars ones I received today in a lot that I bought for right at 50 bucks including shipping.
Here is the Galactus and Punisher I picked up together used for 20.50
I'm still waiting on about 40 more figures to arrive including the Comic Con Spider-man with removable mask and Iron Man with flip up mask to reveal Tony Starks. I will post more pics as I get the figures in.

I really like the newer smaller size ones. I would have collected them a lot sooner if they were this size from the start (as I said in my original post). Tempted by the avengers movie ones, which is the only series out now, I think.

These are about a year old, I have a few more now, but i love the mighty muggs and really wish they would stop messing with the sizes...I saw that this fall they are getting even smaller and are going to be Micro Muggs
