About Mighty Beanz
The 2010/11 Series
So just what is a Mighty Bean? Mighty Beanz are small plastic capsules which house a small ball bearing allowing the beanz to sit in your hand or move in peculiar ways. They measure apporixamtely 1 inch in length. Each Mighty Beanz has a face, allowing you to build up a collection of different Beanz - these have different rarity value so some are harder to find than others.
The 2010 series of Mighty Beanz, confusingly called Series 1, despite the releases of a few years ago, contains 100 Beanz to collect, grouped into a number of different categories (see the poll below for a list of the different categories.) This time around there are also Mega Beanz - shorter, fatter and rarer than their normal counterparts. There are a number of games which can be played with Mighty Beanz and a host of accessories to add to the fun!
Now, hot on their backs for the second half of 2010, comes Mighty Beanz Series 2 - another cool hundred Beanz to collect. Also released in 2010 were Star Wars Mighty Beanz - a big range of Mighty Beanz from the hit movies - every major Star Wars character has been given the Mighty Beanz treatment, from Yoda to Vadar and Obi-Wan to Grievous - very, very cool! Then we had another brand new range - Marvel Superhero Mighty Beanz to enjoy.
Now we also have Mighty Beanz Series 3 AND we have a Cars series in the pipeline to coincide with the Cars 2 feature film due out this year.

In all, five regular series of Mighty Beanz were created, alongside special licensed releases for Marvel Superheroes, The Simpsons, Pokemon and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
