I'm hoping that some of our Spanish collector friends might be able to help me out.

I've recently been introduced to Little Mates (http://www.little-mates.com for those that are interested) and I WANT MORE!

I've gotten Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, Hawkgirl, and Martian Manhunter (albeit with a cross-eyed paint mistake) and I want the rest of them.

Unfortunately, they don't turn up on ebay all that often (currently there are 4 auctions going ..

http://cgi.ebay.com/Wonder-Woman-little ... 3f082c1048
(hands off please, I'm gunning for this one :wink: )

http://cgi.ebay.com/DC-EXCLUSIVE-LITTLE ... 20b730e073

So, if there are any Spanish friends that would like to help me complete the line up (Batman, Robin, Catwoman, Joker, Harley Quinn, Aquaman are all that are left that I know of) I would be very much appreciative.

...at least that's what the seller is calling them, do you guys know anything about them?... They do have a DC stamp on them, but I don't see any other marking for a manufacturer in the pictures (though I would guess it's Mattel/Fisher-Price considering all of the other Mattel items the seller has). I have J'onn on the way (was the only one the seller had at the time I bought, hopefully it'll be here today or tomorrow), I'll try to get some comparison pics up once he's in.

Yeah, I do. (because I started this thread in the Foreign Objects forum a year or so back ... not that I'm bitter or anything ...)

They are from a company out of Spain and the website is entirely in Spanish (if anyone can go check them out and translate for us that would be great)

The figure set includes:
Batman, Superman, Green Lantern (Hal), Wonder Woman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Joker, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Hawkgirl.

They have Aquaman and Robin shown on their website but I have never seen them offered on eBay so I have no idea if the figures were actually produced.

Lately, there have also been solicts for Beach Towels and Coffee Mugs featuring the characters in this style popping up on eBay.

The figures themselves usually don't go for too much on eBay, but international shipping out of Spain, Italy, and wherenot make them a bit of a pricier item to pick up.

Harley Quinn (the only figure I am currently missing) in particular is the hardest figure to acquire without a major upcharge, but you can pick up full cases or figure sets for a relatively fair price.

That's all the info I have for now. I can post a bit more (links to the company's website, etc.) when I get home and pull out one of the boxes.

Hope that helps.

Now I see why I missed this... Posted two weeks after my folks' house burned to the ground, I was a bit preoccupied...

Thanks for the info here, Ben, especially helpful since the seller I got MM from had no info on where these came from.

Ouch, sorry to hear about your parent's home.

Hopefully, everything ended alright and, aside from the loss of mementos.

There's an English version of the site: http://www.little-mates.com/index_en.php

You can access it by clicking "EN" on the Spanish page.

It would be so nice if I could just order the products direct from them off that site.

I love the little downloads and coloring/activity pages, but I want the figures man.

Agreed.

I tried sending them an email to inquire where I could possibly order in my region but have yet to hear back from them.

Got J'onn on Saturday morning. These things are cute beyond words but, damn, are they tiny!

Got a set of Little Mates. Individual pics and maybe even a short write-up to follow soon.

Hmmm?... The J'onn I got was in a little baggie with some info printed on it and a folder showing the other figures. No box or name plate stand.

Jim - did all your Little Mates not come with stands (as shown in your photos above)?

All I've got is J'onn. He's still in the baggie. I'll try to take a pic when I get home.
