Maybe I am more of an oddity than I realized because to me GI Joe seemed like it would be a perfect fit for minimates. There are no real scale issues since pretty much everyone is an adult human. You have plenty of unique looking characters (lots of them can double for army or civilian characters in other collections) and plenty of army builders. Vehicles would work great and there are tons of easy exclusives (Tiger Force, Python Patrol, Night Force, etc.). Obviously it looks like the market does not agree with me. It does make me wonder if maybe the line would have had more success if it came out back when TRU was still around and had that exposure. I mean when you look at all the different properties that have been made into minimates it’s hard to believe that GI Joe cannot get past wave 2. There were 3 waves of Muppets!!!
I might just be a curse for minimates. My favorite has always been Lord of the Rings (2 waves with promos shown for a wave 3, I still search EvilBay in hopes of finding them some day).
