Hello! I would have liked to waited for introducing myself properly, Im currently getting all my MIMPs together (waiting for some buys to arrive, for my mother to bring me some from home, etc. haha). I'll show you my humble collection later these days I guess.

I've been reading this forum intensively and I think that I've learned a lot thanks to you guys. Seeing all this hardcore fans of these figurines made me want to finish what I started when I was like... 6 years old. But as I said, I will introduce myself properly later.

With what I've learned: do you think these are real Promotional Figures of the board game or maybe some italian/southamerican items? Look at that chunk of plastic in the upper tentacle of the Kraken, for instance.

What do you guys think?

Looks legit to me, just chewed up. And one of the figures, behemoth, is missing. Gotta say the game looks pretty ropey too so you'd be paying $50 for two figures.

Thank you for your quick response. I've got to train my eye more.

Yeah, the game is almost dust. Crazy prices nowadays.

Hey, just spotted this one on eBay from UK. Has all 4 of the pieces that came with the game and more, box looks to be in better condition to, also looks to be cheaper

And it is now in my possession! Mwahahaha!

I wanted the premium figures and the box mainly, to keep all my other premiums in but I just opened it and the game is mint and complete. The box is a bit dented underneath and one corner is bumped but still....
Oh and it came with 84 mimp including the 4 premiums and 9 regional colours. A pretty good haul overall.

Yes, definitely legit but the price is terrible for condition. I would highly recommend Behemoth's mimp collective to brush up on your mimp knowledge. I would also highly recommend that you keep your childhood collection separate from any new figures you collect. If I still had my childhood mimp; they would have thier own display case. They are something to be cherished and not mixed in with random figures in my opinion.

The only mimp I've found from my childhood collection were the twelve from the monster clash game. I keep them separate.

I have to admit I'm not really interested in much past the figures and I didn't even own this game first time around but I got a warm fuzzy feeling from opening this.

I have to be honest, I know I have done 'The Dance' a few times when I finally score the things I've been looking for
