Imaginext has its own blind bag series and I pick up a few as the fancy hits me. Series 6 features a Godzilla-esque character.
The figure comes with a headpiece that mimics a Godzilla head. Without the head, the figure looks like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cosplay. One nice touch is that when the headpiece is on, the red visor looks like the inside of the dragon’s mouth.
One nice aspect of Imaginext blind bags is that there is an identifying code on each packet. Godzilla’s code is 00.
This line has had some wonderfully wacky characters over six series, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s coming in the future.
Take a lot of snow and a little geek and you get…
For a few days, the Fisher Price website had pictures of figures for an Imaginext blind bag Batman series (you can see them at actionfigureinsider.com). For some reason, the pictures are no longer on the FP site. But it reminded me of some Imaginext customs I had made, so here they are.
The Red Hood (from before the new 52 reboot) was made from a blind bag punk rocker, and Batman Beyond is a simple Batman repaint.

The Batman Family, Imaginext style
While Imaginext isn’t one of my primary collections, I couldn’t resist some of the blind bag series and some of the DC figures. I finally found a series 4 Space Ape the other day. For some reason the idea of a gorilla in a space suit just made me chuckle.
Series 4 Package
So when I opened the package and saw this….
Space Ape unaltered
…I was disappointed. With the face shield opaque, you couldn’t see that a monkey was in the space suit, which killed the humor. Then I remembered that I customize figures and that I could fix this.
Space Ape fixed
A few minutes with the exacto knife and it was all fixed. The fact that the gun looks a lot like a banana was a nice touch.
Blind Bag collection
My collection of Blind Bag figures seems like an old 60’s Hanna Barbara cartoon. “Space Ape and his friends, XR-9 and Paul the Bigfoot, roam the galaxy in search of adventures and hijinks!” These toys are just plain fun.
