Anyone ever find any wild mimp, specifically in the uk? Any good hunting grounds? Ive taken to wandering round charity shops everytime I go somewhere hoping to find a board game. Obviously there's bootfairs too but I haven't had any luck yet.
If I ever find any I'll probably scream like a little kid and pay whatever they ask. I'm that bored of eBay lol.

Nope, not ever. I still dream about finding some, but never do.

I found about 40 awhile back at a swapmeet at the bottom of a toy box, that was pretty sweet.

Yeah I find series 1 original colors with some frequency at flea markets around here, and I even found a super scary box a few months back at an antique shop in upstate NY but it was over priced

Being Canadian, I've stumbled across a couple S3 figures.

I have also found the odd one at my local shop or flea markets. Almost always common figures are priced at something crazy like $5 a piece.

I bought a few substantial Lots on Craigslist years back, but other than that I've never seen them in the wild other than toy Expos or collectible shows.

I'd be happy with commons and dinosaurs, maybe a blemmy or two, anything outside of ebay would be welcome tbh

Three bootfairs this weekend and I found one mini boglin. At least it's a step in the right direction.

I picked up a ghostbusters ecto 1 companion in a bundle of mimp from eBay. Didn't have a clue what it was until I looked it up.

My best three wild MIMP finds are as follows:

- NY Griffin, absolute mint condition and given to me for free by the lady (a very uncommon series 1 neon)

- GITD Ghost, which I paid 20p

- Premium cyan Winged Panther that was filthy, but scrubbed up very well
