Hey man, yeah its extremely difficult to kick the mimp habit once you get started!
Aye no probs matey, always happy to lend a hand and give helpful info to a fellow LRG enthusiast! Regarding other rare premiums, series 1 has the most by far, whether its neons or ones from the Decipher board game and Nabisco Frosted Wheat Squares (USA). They're similar to second series colours except for green which is a lot darker or "pine" coloured.
I take it you're unaware of the unreleased figures from the third series then? For those just starting out again and getting to grips with rarer figures, I find this is a really useful page:
There you'll find Jabalius (AKA The Beast of Gevaudan) plus many other strange myths and legends you weren't have heard of as well as the ones that were actually made into production. Now these are a LOT more expensive believe me! More often than not you'll find sellers listing their goods for sale at exuberant prices like these for instance:
I believe a good expression for this is known as " Pie in the sky pricing". Behemoth told me this when I showed him a link to an auction a short while ago. And he's absolutely bang on the button when it comes to stuff like this, and the fact these sellers don't even give potential buyers a choice of making an offer is frankly ridiculous.
That's enough of my ranting for now anyways! lol But yeah, all you need to know about the mimp toy line is in the link I provided above. Oh and one more thing, if you ever start collecting them with their original packaging like I do, then this is the best page to scroll through: http://www.raumhafen...s/mimp/mimp.txt
At least this way you'll already be aware of what's hiding inside the "secret" boxed sets before you take a sneak peek inside. Hope this helps you out on your mimp quest!
