Some of the smallest Mighty Max sets were the Micro Heads. They are really small, and have space for exactly one Mighty Max figure, although in some cases it is kind of tricky to fit the figure inside the case.
Each head of these micro sets represents one of the well-known monsters or some recognizable horror icon: Dracula, the Mummy, Frankenstein, a skull, a zombie... what makes them very attractive to all horror fans. Each head opens revealing a very small scenery including the moster (casted) in it. The Mighty Max figure that fits each set mostly has some accesory in its hands that fits the theme of the adventure: a stake in the Vampyre set, a spray can in Insect, pliers for Lobotix…
Another interesting feature is that the figure fits almost milimetrically in the case, it took me quite a while to fit all figures in their correct positions, it might be quite challenging. I haven’t found out how to fit the figure in the last set (Insect), if anyone knows…
Here are the eight sets’ interiors. Note also the nice combination of colours in each set and altogether. There is a great production design behind this toyline.
