Years ago I used to write for Art Asylum and I have the good fortune to remain friends with them.

The work they do on action figures is unmatched. The Star Trek line has been beautiful and wait until you see what they've developed for the Next Generation. But so far the most popular product they have is the Minimates; little 'block figures' that look like Legos. In two years they've managed to make tiny versions of Marvel, DC, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, even Ozzy Osbourne.

And they've got fans. Here's a whole website devoted to these figures and a forum of people who love them. Go over and see how many cute little characters you can turn a simple two inch figure into.
