New 5 Surprise Mini Brands toys have hit shelves, offering miniature versions of household food and drugstore products in metallic or glow-in-the-dark versions.
Zuru, the maker of these toys, reports that manufacturing them isn’t all that hard but is far from effortless.
Ultra-rare items are defined as any item with less than 20 visible examples in existence, typically obtained through competition prizes, staff gifts, compensation or promotional items that have become part of Habbo trading culture. They tend to be more costly than regular furni and may feature unique characteristics like being able to hold more items or having special backgrounds.
Mini Brands products with limited-edition run are highly collectible. Some examples include the notoriously ugly McMaggot Burger, Babybel Cheese and Mentos Container with gold wrapper; all three products are immensely popular among kids despite their obvious flaws; children often rush to purchase the plastic spheres containing miniature replicas of grocery store products that they eagerly peel apart to reveal five big surprises within them – which usually feature both the product itself as well as plastic shopping cart or basket to practice real grocery store shopping!
Contrary to popular belief, these items are not simply reprints of original cards but rather entirely new versions with unique artwork. They typically use holofoil printing – which gives a shiny reflective appearance – giving some cards Colorful Rare status while others use silver-colored foiling which matches regular Rare cards in terms of reflecting light.
Quarter Century Secret Rares, commonly referred to as QSrRs, feature parallel foil patterns on their names and a 25th anniversary watermark. There is another similar effect called Starlight Rares that have polarized foil treatment that creates an almost cross-hatched appearance to them.
Holofoil effects can also be found on the card ‘buttons’ (depicting card type and level for monsters), which have been embossed to add depth and texture. Furthermore, all art, borders, and card ‘buttons’ have also been given texture for enhanced visual appeal. Additionally, there are cards with metallic finishes which have a different sheen than standard holofoil cards and some older sets contain cards with special foil treatments for their names and artwork. Secret Rares can be easily identified by their silver foil name stamps with “secret rare” text underneath the art, originally printed for Duelist League but no longer offered; some early printings of the game featured cards with foil name stamps of other colors, known as Colorful or Ultra Rares.
