Collectors have made MINDstyle's Scavengers mini-fig series (1 & 2) by Kathie Olivas one of the hottest in recent memory. Perhaps the hottest of all is the Two-Faced hazel. The original black chase from S1 is in high-demand and currently commands prices north of $150 if you're lucky enough to find one.
To add even more excitement to the hunt, MINDstyle and Kathie Olivas have recently dropped three special Hazel minis -- silver, blue and red. Each edition is available through its own way. The Silver Hazel Mini edition will be available exclusively from Kathie via circusposterus.com as part of a special Book set.
The Red Hazel Mini is a friends and family edition, given out to celebrate Chinese New Year and is not for sale (NFS). "It's our way to say thanks to fans and friends who have made the MINDstyle's Scavengers mini figures series a huge success," stated Emi Uchiki (MINDstyle's Relations Manager). " The Red Hazel will also be available to Art Toy Society (ats) members with renewal and to all new members. If you would like to join the ATS, please email info[at]mindstyle[dot]com. Finally, we're pleased to reveal as a special bonus and thank you, the Red Mini Hazels will be randomly packed-in with the 9" Two-Faced Hazel FDR figures which were sold through Vinyl Pulse Exclusives and will be shipping shortly.
The Blue Hazel Mini is available as randomly packed-in chase figures (1 in four) with both the Asian and European editions of the 9" Two-Faced Hazels. So that's two opportunities to score the Blue Hazel mini for free (no additional cost). The Asian edition is currently available from retailers in Asia. The European edition will be released through select MINDstyle EU retailers in late spring and later online through Cardboard Spaceship.
