TheGodBeast Kabuto Mushi Mini-Mushi Swarm 4-Pack Assorted Colors Minifigure SetIf you like mini figures, particularly the Mordles, TheGodBeast's Kabuto Mushi Mini-Mushi Swarm 4-Pack Assorted Colors is probably just the thing you need. They feature no paint or articulation, but are about 1 1/4-inches high and are made from the same plastic material as the Kabuto Mushi and other Glyos figures. Quite literally - I'm pretty sure they were squeezed out of the same tooling, too.

TheGodBeast Kabuto Mushi Mini-Mushi Swarm 4-Pack Assorted Colors Minifigure SetOn launch day, you could buy 5 different Mini-Mushi 4-packs. Solid colors were up for grabs, or this pack of one of each - and while the big guys sold out in minutes, the little guys stuck around for a few weeks. I sort of understand why, with the rampant popularity of most new Glyos-compatible figures, but the little guys are really cool.

Each small figure looks a lot like an underfed, unarticulated Laser Beasts figure. There's a little orb in his chest, and the pose makes the figure look as if he were a distant cousin to the Beastformers. No accessories are included, but the sculpting matches most Glyos toys with claws sculpted on the bottom of the feet. The detail in the head may remind you of Transformers Bombshell who, probably not coincidentally, also turns into a rhinoceros beetle-like creature.

TheGodBeast Kabuto Mushi Mini-Mushi Swarm 4-Pack Assorted Colors Minifigure SetSince the figures look good and stand well, there's not a heck of a lot to say. The quality is typical Glyos-level, with somewhat hard plastic. They're not as soft as the OMFG or Mordles lines, but the horns probably won't snap off easily, either. My one complaint is that a little deco would go a very long way - painting the eyes would do so much for these figures, because as it is you have to get in really close and squint to see them. The Mordles proved that you can get a lot out of a couple of paint applications, and if some day we saw $2 fully-painted Mushi-Mini figures I'd be inclined to buy them all. As it is, I may pick up more as they become available but it's tough to know for sure, there are so many high-quality indie toys coming out of the Onell/Glyos factory in China that it seems increasingly prudent to skip a few in the name of space.
