Kelloggs Minimates

So, I recently discovered that there were some prototypes made of a wave of Kellogg's Minimates. It's a real shame that these didn't see the light of day. Any chance that they could be revived as some kind of exclusives?

They looked so awesome.

Yeah, they were pretty cool. Tony the Tiger would have made my Hobbes custom a helluva lot easier, that's for sure.

I think, unfortunately or not, that the collectibles market figured out pretty quickly that there just isn't enough mass interest in these types of properties to support toy lines. Notice how I said "properties", not "characters", because they really aren't characters, are they? Anyway, I think these would have worked really, really well as cereal box pack-ins. Sold at retail, not so much.

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. I have to say I really want these to be brought back into light. Please minimates if you are listening, give the kelloggs minimates another shot. I think most collectors would want these. I mean come on.... how many of us have/or eat kelloggs ceral?

They would be greeeeaaaattttt!

Kubrick collectors enjoyed 3 series of Kelloggs' characters* & it took me several years to finally attain the final pair of 'secrets' . One is a Puffa Puffa Rice kubrick ,which was in fact a bearbrick .  I had often seen that bearbrick  on ebay yet never twigged it was a 'kubrick' ....if you see what I mean ?  

The other secret that I had big trouble finding is the secret 'K' which must be amongst the weirdest 'mini-figures' in any line, anywhere , a big red 'K' which is, believe it or not ,articulated?  

Despite their faults, kubricks always used sculpted heads where necessary & to great effect. Looking at those proto Kelloggs Minimates I can only give my humble opinion that they fail miserably, especially when compared with the kubrick production items .

*lots of tigers as well

I do wonder why Kubricks just suddenly stopped without ceremony. Add another headstone to the brick fig graveyard.

I have no answer to that . 

They have not completely ceased production, the latest offering was a single-packed figure sponsored by the US 'Supreme' brand featuring 'The Crow' . In fact there were 2 offerings ,one standard '100%' kubrick & a massive '1000%' version with a massive price-tag .  I know little of the 'Supreme' brand but I know that they themed,several years ago, one other kubrick,  a Supreme t-shirted 'Kermit' . That regularly sells on ebay for over $250 which ,to me, is quite bizarre . Bizarre is a word often used when I discuss kubricks .

None of the Crow unfortunately . I'd love one but out of my league ($1500-2000??).

I do however have a 2 feet tall Andy Warhol 1000% which ....you guessed it....is totally bizarre ...but far & away the best (unknowingly)  'investment' I ever made .
