While there is not much sculpt to speak of, keeping the figures simple is perfect for the smaller size of the MiniMates. There is not much detail other than painted expressions and muscles, but that is all that is needed to define these tiny heroes. The figures stand two inches tall and their likeness to their comic inspiration is spot-on which makes each hero easy to recognize.

MiniMates can be taken apart, but only in the ways they were designed to.  You can switch legs, heads and accessories of MiniMates easily, making it possible to create your own superhero out of the current offerings. There are plenty of MiniMate sets ranging from superhero to sci-fi allowing endless possibilities for creation.

MiniMates have a broad appeal for both the young and young at heart. There are a range of play sets, vehicles and accessories for the children eight years and up, but their 14 points or articulation make them perfect for posing and displaying for collectors. Articulation is tight, so they retain their poses, making it easy to create miniature dioramas of comic moments both classic and imagined.  MiniMates comfortably fit into any avid Marvel fan’s collection. They are great for their price and appeal to any generation of comic book enthusiast.
