Mattel Batman v. Superman Mighty Minis Series 2 Silver Batman Mini FigureGlyos-compatible! But not intentionally. A few series of DC Comcis Mighty Minis are out there, and I picked up Silver Batman an a pile of clearance wares for $0.75 - which is about my speed. I love miniature figures and trading toys, but retail on these is pretty high at $3-$4 each - as recently as 2 years ago, you could get a fully-painted 3 3/4-inch Batman for as little as $5. As such, this isn't a good deal, unless it's on sale in which case it is awesome. The head, shoulders, cape, and legs pop off with a grand total of 4 points of articulation. I got my money's worth.

Mattel has a good history with miniature figures, especially with MUSCLE and CUTIE figures from 30 years ago. These are, arguably, better - fully-jointed and swappable parts is a figure dork's fever dream, although MUSCLE were 4 for $1 and these are $3-$4 each. Personally, I'd rather they be cheaper, but these are also painted. As a seemingly chase figure, Mattel created a way to make the unpainted figures more desirable - by telling you that you can't have them. Unpainted is something of a misnomer, as Batman does have a big grey bat symbol on his chest. Other than that, he's bare silver plastic - and those arms pop right in a Glyos Pheyden shoulder socket if you have one handy.

On an unpainted figure I can get a better look at the sculpting. The figure is cartoony with broad shoulders, and - surprisingly - not a bad Ben Affleck likeness. Take a look at that chin up close - it's actually pretty decent. He's a little back-heavy thanks to the cape, so to keep him standing you'll want to swing his hands forward a tiny bit. There's a decent sculpting job on the outfit, especially for the size - the plastic isn't too glossy, so it seems to work just fine as a visual.

Mini collecting is sort of its own thing - it's a fun diversion, it's reasonably cheap, but they're expensive relative to other products from the manufacturer. Is this $3 figure really better than a $15-$20 full-size 6-inch fully-jointed figure? Probably not - but you can get a whole collection for cheap, scratch that itch, and store them all in a small box until you sell them or start finding display shelves for tiny 2 1/4-inch figures. Whenever I start buying minis - and lately, I've gotten a bunch - I can totally see converting to this toy lifestyle because of the costs and space savings. At least if you buy 1,000 of these things, you won't have to do more than kit out a decent sized cabinet to fit your needs.
