Carlov's Figurines

In Minish Cap, you can get figurines from Carlov in Hyrule Town. This page explains how to do it.

How to Get Figurines

After a certain point in the game, you get access to Carlov's hut in Hyrule Town. He makes figurines, and you can win new ones by playing a lottery. When you play, you're shown a percentage, which is the probability that you'll get a new figurine. In other words, if your probability is not 100%, you may get a figurine you already have. You increase your chances by using the mysterious shells you've collected during the game. For each mysterious shell, the probability goes up by one.

Early on, before you have a lot of figurines, your probability of getting a new one is very high. You always get a new one the first time. Later, however, the probability goes down. In general, it's best to give enough shells that your probability is around 80%. Once you have a lot of figurines, you'll have to have a huge number of shells to get a good probability. The shop in Hyrule Town sells mysterious shells if you don't have enough, but they're really expensive.

If you're desperate, here is the infinite money trick: to the left of Link's door, if you dig with the mole mitts, a 20 rupee piece comes up every time. Just go in and out of Link's house digging up rupees until your wallet is full.

You can only get figurines of characters/monsters you've already seen in the game. That means that if you spend a lot of time in Carlov's hut getting figurines, you might reach a point where you can't get any more new ones because Carlov hasn't made the new ones yet. It can be hard to know when this happens, but it may help to check the list.

Six Special Figurines

There are 136 total figurines you can win, but the last 6 can only be obtained after beating the game. BUT, if you collect the first 130 that are available prior to beating the final dungeon, Carlov will consider your collection complete, give you the Carlov Medal, and if you show it to the man sitting in Mama's Cafe he will unlock the door of the house with the robot on the roof, where you can access a piece of heart, 600 rupees, and an old-style phonograph that lets you use the game's sound test.

There are two drawbacks to winning the Carlov Medal before beating the game: the sound test won't be able to play some of the game's songs (final boss battles and ending credits, for example), and you won't be able to collect all 136 figurines in the game. However, the drawback to waiting until you beat the game to collect all 136 figurines is the fact that you will be short one piece of heart, and therefore won't have all 20 heart containers for the final dungeon and final battles. The final battles are tough, so you might want that last piece of heart so you have 20 full hearts, but I think it's more fun to wait until you beat the game before trying to get the rest of the figurines.
