Just for fun, I'm interested in how you guys got the collections you have. I'd say mine is about 20% from the collection I had as a kid (I found them in my attic about 10 years ago which reignited the spark) and the rest from ebay. I've read that some of you have grabbed a few from Instagram as well as car boots. I've been to a few car boots over the years but never had any luck...

Childhood, eBay, and buying from friends/random folks off here and Facebook. Sadly have not seen MIMP or Boglins in the wild since they left shelves though.

I found a MIMP Pocket pouch jammed with MIMP at a bootfair last year. Was a rare find though. Nothing really rare but still a good find.

Thrift shops can also occasionally be a good place to find stuff, most obvious is collectors fairs. Yeah, prices can vary but always nice to get the odd piece your hunting.

I've been to many flea markets, thrift shops and Goodwills but never found a MIMP on this side of the pond since the 90's. Not even at a Comic Con.

You should set up your own collectors fair, its an idea I've been thinking about for some time now. Theres enough collectors of mini figures out there. Even if its just a one off the day would be pretty amazing for those with a passion for it

I remember having about 10 or so mini boglins as a child in school, but could only find 2 in the loft a couple of years ago, and they were the same sculpt  :rolleyes:

I did find my 2 larger puppets though. Although no boxes, and my red haired Plunk was really torn. Took a while to glue him all back together, and he's fine for display now.

 

My complete mini sculpt set I have recently achieved has mainly been from eBay, I think 8 or so came from members here.

 

Not seen any in the wild :( , and I goto boot sales fairly regularly.
