I really feel like I have to start a Minimates collection. I really dig these uber-cute things -- especially when they pick movies that seem unlikely. Currently, you can get everything from Marvel zombies to Marty McFly. Now /film reports that there's going to be Minimates for the Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs. How cool is that!?

The figures to be included in the box set: Clarice Starling sporting her smart business suit, Dr. Lector in blue, the crazy Hannibal Lector with bite-proof mask, straight jacket, and gurney, and of course, a topless Buffalo Bill with his creepy, Death's Head moth. Don't worry, the latter has pants on, so there's no package-tucking with these toys. From one of the released pictures (check out /film), it also looks like the accessories include Bill's night-vision goggles. I wonder what else is in the set!

And those aren't the only tiny toys coming out this year under MGM Movie Minimates. There's also The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, For a Few Dollars More, Fistful of Dollars, and Platoon. (Which of these things is not like the others?) This should satisfy Clint Eastwood fans, but now I can't help but wonder what will come next. I have my request...

To the Minimates powers that be: please put out Heathers!
