Mister Ed wrote:Huh? I'm not getting your meaning. The base (at present, anyway) is easily separated from the minifig, so if the concern was that a minifig alone would be a choking (or swallowing) hazard, adding the base does little to prevent that, since it comes off so easily, leaving you in exactly the same position riskwise as if it wasn't there at all...

This is confirmed fact? And there is a noticeable difference in the quality? (I only ask because I only have a couple of the magnet sets, which have not even been opened yet. I don't have 1st-hand experience handling these figs).

It makes for a neat display. If I want the figures for other uses, I'll buy the set they come in. It's that simple.
