Scavengers Mini Figures Series 1...coming June 20th...
When is Series I being released? Friday, June 20th, 2008
Who will have the figures available? Of course, all MINDstyle Premium retailers will have the figures and just about everywhere fine mini figures are sold.
What is the display ratio? 3/15 MASAO 3/15 WINSTON 3/15 BEAUMONT 3/15 DEXTER 2/15 AUBRIE 1/15 NIGEL ????? SECRET (There are only 300 randomly inserted in displays) ????? Select retailers will carry the color variants and exclusives
What is the production size: As with most mini figures -- the production runs are traditionally open. We can tell you the following: There are less than 2000 of any one figure made of Series I; There are only 300 secret figures randomly packed
What is the suggested retail price: SRP: $11.99
Who will have the exclusive figures? As of this announcement, the retailers with exclusives are: Cardboard Spaceship (Santa Cruz)
De La Barracuda Shop (Hollywood)

FX Show (Orlando)
myplasticheart (New York)
Rivet Gallery (Ohio) Rotofugui (Chicago)

Just how limited are the exclusives? Only 200 pieces of each exclusive will be available worldwide and in a few cases, there could be more, and there even may be less in other events with extremely rare color ways.
What is the price for exclusives? SRP: $15.00
Why do exclusives cost more? Exclusives are produced separate from the production run; and in limited amounts by industry standards. Traditionally, there are minimum quantities set by the factory to open production. So, with only 200 or even less, the figures simply cost more to manufacture and are instantly of greater value.
When will the exclusives be released? There will be two exclusives available at SDCC with additional versions on a monthly basis
Can I buy exclusives released online or where I live? It will depend on the retailer but all show exclusives are available to Art Toys Society (ATS) members.
Who did the box design? Again, Rob Schwager worked with Kathie on an amazing design.
Who does the packaging? MINDstyle creative takes pride in working with the respective artist on bringing their vision to market from concept to finished product.
What is the special packaging all about? The flip top gift box is closed by a magnet and comes with a slip cover. We've found collectors find the packaging equally as important, so we've made every effort to create something that is worth keeping. Kathie's products are high in demand and quickly rise in value, why doesn't MINDstyle simply produce more figures? In most cases, the production run and color ways are discussed with the artist at the start of a project not knowing the demand. At MINDstyle, the artist has final approval on all products manufactured. Our goal has been to produce quality products that meet our high standards.
How can I make my own custom? Fans and collectors will be happy to know that DIY do-it-yourself versions of MASAO, AUBRIE and DEXTER will be available for a limited time at retailers and events.
When is Series II be released? The exact date has not been set, but it will be in the 3rd quarter of this year.
