TJ’s Toy Chest: Star Wars Mini Mugg Bounty Hunters

I have been a huge fan of Hasbro’s Mighty Mugg line of figures since their inception. With their mostly standard issue bodies, they remind me of MiniMates in the width and breadth of what they can do with a basic body shape to create characters from Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe and Marvel. I picked up select favorites like Hoth Han Solo, Mace Windu, Cobra Commander and Mola Ram and others, but noticed that the line seemed to all but dry up this year. Well, I was surprised and excited to see that, instead of completely going away, the Muggs made a return to my local Target in the form of 3-pack Mini Mighty Muggs. I strongly hinted to the missus that these would make great stocking stuffers and she came through with the Bounty Hunter pack featuring IG-88, Boba Fett and Bossk. Like a lot of Star Wars fans, I’m a huge fan of these characters and their brief appearances in the movies. One of the few Star Wars books I ever read was Tales Of The Bounty Hunters which took these characters along with the rest and gave them more depth. The figures are pretty basic and do feel like shrunk-down versions of the larger toys, the only real difference I notice is that the guns are part of the figure and can not be removed, which doesn’t bother me in the slightest. Fewer parts flying around and getting in the hands of our daughter who will be joining us this spring is probably for the best. They might not have a ton of play value, but they look rad on a shelf!
