Mighty Beanz Zoom into Your Collection
Mighty Beanz is a set of collectible toys that were widespread in the early 2000s and are available on eBay. These tiny, pill-shaped toys feature wacky and colorful designs, and the toys contain small weights that allow them to race down tracks. Each Mighty Bean has a different character painted on, and the Mighty Beanz personas belong to different editions in the collection.How do you use Mighty Beanz?
The two major reasons Mighty Beanz can be fun for both children and adults are:
- Entertainment: The original set of Mighty Beanz went on the market in 2002. The Beanz can offer plenty of fun because they roll around in a way that is unique from other toys. They also include heroes from Star Wars and the DC Universe on some Beanz.
- Competition: One of the main ways to play with Mighty Beanz is to race them down tracks. The Jump Track, Flip Track, Collision Chaos, and Super S-Bend are four racing courses for the Beanz to compete on. These tracks are also available on eBay.
Each Mighty Beanz toy is a unique personality, and each pack of Mighty Beanz involves the chance to unlock a rare or an extra-rare Mighty Bean. Some packs expand to include ultra-rare Mega Beanz, which are another type or version of each Bean. The racetracks also include secret, special Bean editions. Some sets, like those based on television shows or movies, have an added potential to become collectors' items.What editions of Mighty Beanz are there?
Since the toy's humble beginnings, Mighty Beanz has expanded into multiple normal series and editions. The Simpsons and Star Wars have gotten their own specialty sets of Mighty Beanz, giving you Bean versions of your favorite characters from these universes. Some of the preowned Mighty Beanz editions you might find on eBay include:
- Mighty Beanz Series 1-5: These were the original Mighty Beanz sets introduced between 2002 and 2006 that included the red collector's box, the glow-in-the-dark Bean, and the famous Flip Track. Many of the original Series 1 toys are considered collectibles, especially the aforementioned Flip Track and Mega Bean versions of some Beanz.
- Star Wars Mighty Beanz: During the time of the 2010 relaunch, the toy company partnered with other franchises, including Star Wars. An entire set of Mighty Beanz Star Wars toys was produced. Some of the notable Mighty Beanz Star Wars models include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Yoda. Other Star Wars champions are also available.
- Marvel Universe: Another partnership resulted in Marvel Universe Beanz. This series included famous superheroes like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four represented as Beans.
