Anyone collect these? Honestly, they remind me of Beanie Babies and I can't stand the look of them. Without it saying on the box, you can't even tell who any of the figures are. My kids will buy the odd one with their own money at toy shows and such but I won't let them pay more than $5 per figure. Idk, anyone think any of these will retain any sort of value?
It's an interesting product line for sure. A novelty super-deformed series for the masses, which became a hit. I think the variety of IP's is the key, since you can collact a vast amount of fictional and real characters.
While I do like designer toys, this is not my cup of tea. I can't stand the aesthetics and it's way over-hyped. But, people collect what they want and I appreciate the loyalty of their fans.

I can't stand these or other cutesy poo super deformed type toys. No idea if they will retain value but there's some that are already insanely expensive on the secondary market. I guess if you wanna waste your money on nondescript chucks of vinyl that's your prerogative but I don't get it either.
Everytime you mention these ... things, a vintage action figure dies.
I ... can ... see how others are interested, if I really try. Dependent on the individual, but the idea of one in my room, regardless of the IP, makes me feel doity.
I walked past one doing work in a client's house, if it wasn't for the Dr Who library next to it, I could have spent the rest of my life guessing. Just looked like 'generic office worker with her hair parted a certain way'. Hell, I'm not even sure if it was Dr Who anymore.
They made a Wynonna Earp one of these. With a chase figure. I reckon that says everything.
Bonus knowledge: you can send away for custom ones of yourself.

i have never been a fan of super deformed figures at all for one thing. i also dont like how genericly they all sort of look the same. i dont like how limited the movement of them is. i mean honestly i pretty much personally dislike every aspect of them. but i guess people are going to like what they like. as a strictly 3 3/4" scale collector i also dont really like their reaction figures either. i think both lines have the same thing going on, nice licenses lame product.
