I got e-mail this morning from Michael Kwong, the Hong Kong toy designer responsible for the Limited Ed. Galaxy Bunch mini figures. Here's the info straight from the source:
About the Galaxy Bunch

The image of the Galaxy Bunch was first launched at Hong Kong Comic Festival in 2003. It was designed by Hong Kong designer, Michael Kwong. A set of nine characters had attracted many fans immediately due to their stylish and unique appearances.
Michael focused on developing individual character’s personality and tried to establish a completed dimension for the story in the past few years. In 2007, more than 60 characters in the story have been created by Michael, which included monsters, creatures, aliens and robots. Each character has its own characteristic and personality.

The footprint of Galaxy Bunch has appeared in many exhibitions and toy shows, such as Taipei International Toy Fair 2006 and 2007; Hong Kong Licensing Show 2006; Hong Kong InnoExpo 2006; Hong Kong AniCon 2006; San Diego Comic Convention 2007 and so on. Amazingly, 500 pieces of three inches night grow version of Galaxy Bunch’s toys have been sold out in Taipei International Toy Fair 2006 in four days.
The first series of Galaxy Bunch, the Virus Series, features nine different characters, three inches in height and packaged in a hanging card. Only 1500 sets of the first series were produced, so find them and grab hold of them wherever you can. I will let y'all know when I see 'em for retail sale. Three of the nine different characters are pictured above, for the rest, check out Michael Kwong's Galaxy Bunch Flickr page.
