So I'm taking a break from sports cards for a few posts and keeping with the same topic as the last post....
I know there are quite a few mini-figure collectors out there. To be honest I'm just a fledgling collector. But if you read the blog regularly you know I love the oddball and the mini. I started doing some research on minifigures and it can get a little overwhelming. There are the Lego Minifigures, Megablok minis, Kreons, Kenex has mini's as well, Kubricks and Minimates. I'm sure I missed a few but the cool thing is there is so many subjects and genres there's really something for everybody. The only mini's I haven't seen yet are the sports mini's. Where are the mini Albert Pujols, Ryan Braun, Mickey Mantle? I think someone is overlooking something here. Anyways a while back I was checking out the card aisle at Target and noticed these in a gravity feed next to the Topps Series 1.
I had no idea what these were about but for $1.99 I figured I grab a few. Well that started a slippery slop and next thing you know I'm trying to complete the set. For those of you who have never heard of CB's or Character Building, it's a British company that holds the license for Doctor Who and Deadly 60, which is a British nature show, and also put out a line of British military minis too. You can find their website here.
JDNA is a Canadian import company. There website is here.
You'll notice if you click on either one, neither has any information on these mini's. Since there is a Series 1, I guess we can assume there will be other Series' to follow. Maybe.
Here are the insert sheet that comes with each blind pack.
1 White Astronaut - Common
2 Orange Astronaut - Rare
3 Race Car Driver? - Common
4.Construction Worker - Rare
5. Black Soldier - Rare
6.White Soldier - Uncommon
7.Special Forces - Common
8 Red Ninja - Rare
9 Black Ninja - Common
10. Knight - Black with red trim and red cape - Rare
11. Knight - Red with black trim and black cape- Common
12. Zombie monster - Uncommon
First you'll notice there are as many "rare" minis as common and only 2 uncommon. I'm only missing the Construction worker.
Lets have a look at the real figures.
1. White Suit Astronaut - Common
2. Orange suited astronaut - rare.
3. Race Car Driver? - Common
I think it's a race card driver.
4. Construction Worker - Common
Don't have yet.
5. Black Soldier - Rare
6. White Soldier - Common
7 Special Forces Soldier - Uncommon
This is another soldier not featured in the HM Armed Forces line.
8. Red Ninja - Rare
9. Black Ninja - common
10. Knight - Rare - Black with red trim and Red cape (Castle on Shield and Chest)
11. Knight - Common- Red with black trim and black cape with a Lion on shield and chest.
12 - Zombie - Uncommon
There you go. If anyone has an extra construction worker I'd be willing to trade for it. I have multiple white soldiers, special forces soldiers, white suited astronauts and an extra common knight. If anyone sees Series 2 out let me know. I've started a new stand alone page to try and keep track of my mini's.
