Just come across another little bag of figures, thought they were muscle men, but they have panosh 85, 86 on the back. Think they are NINJA mites?! doing some websearches there seems to be a whole world of little figures out there. heaven knows what they are, but they are in ninja poses and various colours, flesh, dark pinky, and a sort of blue.

Which ones were muscle men? I remember in the mid-nineties getting rubber figures of cartooney wrestlers from packs of Frosties...

Also had some slime monster things which came in various bright colours and also a few of the figures that this thread is about (I think).

Reckon they all got chucked ages ago - 99.9% certain that they're gone.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

:shock: :shock:
Panosh Ninja Mites?????????

Well, the market's not as crazy as it was - around a year ago, you'd be getting $50+ per figure, but now you're looking at... £15 per figure? Either way, very lucky find. Congratulations :D

I always wanted the Female Vampire, was it called Vampiria memory is a little hazy..[/quote]

The name's Lamia and she comes from Greek Mythology and had a reputation as a baby killer. But she started off as a mortal queen if you want the back story

I have a full set of series 1 along with a volcano storage/display thing. Also most of series 2.

They're in my dad's garage somewhere. Might pop home and see if I can find them...

Weirdly enough, I signed up to that board this weekend after finding a load of Ultraman. Dragon Ball Z and Godzilla little rubber guys (like MUSCLE/Kinukuman) that I'd got in the early 90s (most still in their boxes/capsules). I'm a bit too old to have experienced MIMP and MUSCLE but I love the detail and imagination in them and can feel myself getting the urge to pick up some more.

Pah! ebayed the whole lot only got £15 for them all!

...but I came across a whole bucket full at the weekend of even more MIMP, including Wrestler, Ninja ones, Puppy in my pocket, a whole load of kellogs exclusives and a load I just cannot ID. Maybe ebay will be my friend this time round! :lol:

Are they more of the same ninjas as last time, or those big colourful Monster Ninja In My Pocket things? If the latter, could I take a look at them before they're flogged?

Ooh, you got some Thingz as well? The only ones of those I need to complete the set are The Thing That Ate My Toothpaste and The Moth Ball Thing.

Don't suppose you have those?
