The Mass Effect trilogy gets a series of Minimates figures to collect in the most annoying way possible. Diamond Select Toys has an entire line of Mass Effect figures coming out, with the first wave of seven tiny space commandos and friends. But that's not the annoying bit.
They're arriving in blind bags — opaque plastic sacks containing a random figure. Unless the bags are coded somehow, that means I'll be spending a lot of time squeezing bags to make sure I don't get doubles.
The first wave includes male and female Shepards, Garrus, Wrex, Tali, Ashley and Liara romance options and the Illusive Man. In keeping with his name, The Illusive Man will be rare in the assortment — just feel for the tiny fist with the cigarette in it. Gotta love the adult collector's market.
