Yeah, that does look pretty dang close :D

However, I like the proportions of these more.

Yeah, McFarlane is coming out with some stuff that could be Muggs cousins. Guess it's an easy bandwagon to jump on.

Hehe, these look cute :)

The legs seem kinda far apart, don't you think?

Go Smurf! (He's the mascot of my school house :D )

I've always wanted to post here ... I'm a virgin-poster & it's quite exciting :no: UK ebay has a custom Ghostbusters Mugg http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Custom-Ghostbusters-...1QQcmdZViewItem

That's it ....really enjoyed my visit :)

Edit: Didn't want to start a new thread .

People have started threads over less :)

Looks hideous, but very Murray-esque at the same time.

I believe that would go in the mighty mugg thread or the non-minimate ebay thread.

Have you tried the search function? :P

Stinking Noob ... Newb ... rascally varmit.

Just what we always wanted: a Master Chief totem pole.

I agree that these suck, but if they did the right license (Metal Gear Solid?), then I might pick one or two up. . .or maybe not. At least these aren't as blatant a rip-off as the Smurf ones.

Ohh I could really go for that Hellboy and Dracula Mez Mugg thingys.

I had no idea that Mighty Muggs were so popular

They were all going on sale at Wal-Mart/Urban Outfitters not long ago. So, who knows? Maybe these guys really underestimated the Muggs' popularity during its height last year or something.

Definitely interested in the Mez-Itz Jason Muggs-thing, and the Freddy and Dracula ain't too shabby, either.

I really don't like seeing Mezco follow someone else's lead. They are normally a pretty creative company, but these are pure knockoffs. I guess it would be cool to have Mugg Vader facing off against Jason Mugghees. Mezco at least has some pretty nifty properties. The original Mez-Itz, though fairly Kubricky, felt more inspired than these. Hmm. I guess Hasbro, with Star Wars, Joes, Marvel, Indiana Jones, and Transformers, is really at the forefront of the market. It's almost like everything else HAS to be compatible with those lines. And while there is a lot to be said for compatibility, there is also a lot to be said for diversity.

Mez-Itz seem to get some excellent licences but they all look like Meh! Shitz! :sick: I looked for the laugh there but they are rubbish . Sorry I never usually slander any toy but they are lame. My love of Muggs is well known but at least I understand the love for them

True, the only thing worse than a Mez-Itz is a Kubrick. Blah.

And with the Mezco mugg-thingies, I like the idea of 2in ones. If the Hasbro Muggs were smaller and a little cheaper, I think they would've been a bigger seller than they have been.

Yup.

And when I got up today, I saw my shadow. Looks like it's gonna be six more weeks of Kubrick bashing.
