2008 Toy Awards: Best Mini Line
What's the difference between a regular toy line and a mini line? Well, other than the obvious answer - the height - you can buy a whole bunch of these for the price of one regular vinyl figure. So, here are our top five picks for the best mini line featuring figures under 4" in height.
5. Alien vs. Predator Cosbaby (Hot Toys)
Out of all of the Cosbaby series that were released this past year, the AVP was our favorite. The Predator figures include a number of accessories, which doesn't happen often in mini lines.
4. Boogily Heads Series 3 (Rocket USA)
The 3rd series of Gus Fink's Boogily Heads brought their strongest assortment of characters to date. A pumpkin head and a robot? Gotta love 'em!
3. Galaxy Bunch [Virus Series] (Michael Kwong)
This line of 9 figures with various sculpts was one of the under the radar releases on the past year. It's a strong lineup of fun, different characters.
2. Baby Treesons (Crazy Label)
The original Treeson was one of the most popular - and raved about - vinyl figures of 2006. This past year saw Crazy Label release 4 new mini characters in 4 different colors. One of the cutest lines of '08.
*WINNER* 1. Glyos System Series (Onell Designs)
Onell Designs' Glyos System Series is still one of our favorite lines...several years after being introduced to them. They continue to release new and exciting colorways as well as adding new head sculpts to the lineup.
