I haven't seen them in person yet, but I'm sure they are invading toy shelves around the country as we speak. It's the Crashlings from Wicked Cool Toys, and I admit, I really dig these guys. In their initial set, they have 150 minifigures to collect, from aliens to monsters to dinosaurs and insects.
They come pseudo-blind bag form with a blister package revealing a one or two minifigures to set your collection. The rest are hidden inside rubber meteors that function as a popper for your Crashlings. Separate your meteor in halves,turn one half inside out, place a Crashling inside, and watch it fly through the air. Cool gimmick, I suppose.
The big draw for me is that haven't gone overboard with the Crashling minifigures themselves. They are almost fully unpainted, which is a plus for classic collectors, and they look to be the right 1-2 inch size. They do have paint applications on eyes and tongues and such, but that doesn't kill it for me. If paint was covering them, then maybe.
There are also rare variants that are molded in a metallic silver or gold plastic, which is always a welcome addition to a set. Chase figures are always fun to pull from a blind bag, box, or in this case meteor.
I certainly look forward to collect these little guys when they crash land in my area.
