|Wrex, Liara and Tali|
Still, being solidly in that market myself, it was probably only a matter of time before I ended up with one or two (or twenty, but that's a story for another post), and on Saturday three of the figures from their Mass Effect series came home with me.

The Mass Effect Minimates are a Gamestop exclusive blind bag release of seven figures. I'm normally not a fan of blind bags, but these are at least true bags (unlike the boxes that some lines are using these days), so it's possible to guess the figures inside by feeling the bags.

I picked up Wrex, Tali and Liara, all of which had enough sculpted detail that they were easy to identify through the bags. I wasn't able to find Garrus, but I think he's be equally easy to recognize by feel. Luckily I'm not a completionist collector, so I wasn't interested in the human figures (I don't play default Shepard(s) and Ashley died in 6 out of my 7 games), although I think they could probably be distinguished by the differences in their hair.
Each figure has the basic 15-piece body (Wrex has the most obvious scuplted extra details, but Liara and Tali have sculpted heads as well) Each figure also includes at least one accessory: Wrex has a firearm, Liara a handgun and biotic blast, and Tali a handgun and omnitool.
