I've looked at these in the vending machines and almost bought one a bunch of times. Once I saw series two I decided to get all of them. They're cheaply made of course, but they're pretty fun for what they are. It's like cheap little knock off Mighty Muggs or something.

Now, of course, I want more.

Here's an ad for them that shows how they work. They come packaged as a ball with the base body inside. You open up the ball/head and then snap it back together around the neck-peg-thing.

How much did it cost you to get the full set, I like the looks of these but there is no gaurantee you are going to A) Get the complete set without buying it from the second market, B) And from the little blurb some of these don't even come with the bodies for the little guys.

Those are AWESOME! Almost like little South Park inspired Marvel Superheroes.

Yeah, I didn't buy them from the vending machines. I ordered full sets off of ebay. It was just over $20 including shipping for both full sets, which isn't bad considering these sell for $1 a piece in the vending machines and you don't know what you're going to get. I saw one place online selling sets of series 2 for $6, but I didn't look at the shipping cost and they didn't have sets of series 1, so I went to ebay.

How dare you sir, how dare you? Those are so much less cool than these. :) (if they were officially licensed with real DC logos I might buy those for the right price :) )

I want those Wonder Woman party rings that show up below the ducks.

For 20.00 dollars for both sets is pretty cool, yeah I thought I had saw that they retailed for a 1.00 dollar a piece, and you got all the leg parts as well which is pretty cool, I am definitely tempted as these look cool.
