    When are we getting a Stan Lee minimate?

    I'm aware of that so perhaps likeness was the wrong word, I do remember Zach saying something to the effect of they couldn't just throw him into a movie wave where he made a cameo because of license issues.

    This isn't applicable for MMM, because these "likenesses" are considered "charicatures", or some such legal mumbo-jumbo.

    Ask Zach

    So, I was reading some posts in the Aliens thread written by disappointed fans armchair quarterbacking DST's marketing decisions. Snarky responses were coming to mind along the lines of, "If you're so confident of your superior marketing skills, why not buck up and sponsor a run like Luke did? You'll get your unicorn mates and the rest will sell like hotcakes to get your money back." But I know they are just disappointed fans so I kept quiet. Then I thought hmmm maybe that could actually work. Would it be possible for a group of fanatical collectors to sponsor a run that DST doesn't want to gamble on? For example, a Bishop (clean) / Ferro two-pack to complete the cast. Could they do a kickstarter or something similar and then if there are enough guaranteed sales, DST can make them. Would something like that be possible? I have seen a couple of companies use kickstarter as a marketing tool for new products they are maybe unsure of. They get a guaranteed minimum pre-order by a certain date or they don't make the product and everyone gets their money back. Maybe you could do something like this to get us that third wise-man.

    If they had to... I'd be ok with a packed in Stan head as an alternative look for a shape changer like Mystique or Chameleon or an official Morph.

    That Mimic recipe has alluded me for years. I spent yesterday thinking about a Nocturne and Wild Child.

    Someone made a decal that is a fantastic likeness of Stan. I'm pretty sure it was Luke and I'm pretty sure you can still find it in the decal thread in the customs section of this site. If you really want a Stan Lee minimate it's an option.

    John Wick

    That is an awesome likeness of Ian McShane.

    Actually the idea of an old man with a top hat with some comics kinda grows on me ......especially as we've had an old man with a baseball cap with ALL the comics.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    DST should approach Target with an assortment. We’re still one Ripley short (Alien: Resurrection) so she can anchor it. Progressive Target will love the emphasis on the athletic female character. (Make sure to include a basketball.) A brand new xeno in the form of the Runner from Alien 3 will attract veteran collectors. After that add Bishop, Ferro, Clemens, and Dr. Gediman (because Brad Dourif!).

    It was my understanding that likenesses aren’t legally an issue since the portraits are noseless caricatures protected by parody law. Technically, DST could offer a box of “comic book creators” that just happen to look like Stan and Jack and Joe and Jerry. They simply wouldn’t be able to use their names. That said, any attempt to circumvent a proper license to produce anything based on Stan “The Man” Lee (or any other beloved comic book creator) would likely be met with litigation from more than one corner. It simply wouldn’t be worth the effort. Get the license. Tie it to a charity. DST can write it off and those of us who want one can get an official Stan Lee Minimate.

    I think it's been said in the past that Stan's likeness wasn't included in the movie licenses.

    The C3 Martian Manhunter minimate was OK but the DC Wonder Woman is still one of my favourite minimates & IMHO has aged very well ....gorgeous

    I need a classic comic Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman in my life.

    John Wick

    So..... last night I watched the first video-game movie . It came out several years ago so I very much expect that it's all been said .

    For a second I forgot what thread I was in and thought they were Minimates. The cape threw me. Ohh the pain when it clicked they weren't.

    Wave 78

    This wave has me on an X-Men kick. I just went and (re)bought Gambit, Bishop, and Hope. I'm building Morph and trying to figure out a recipe for Mimic lol

    An MCU through the Ages, natch: General Lee (From Winter Soldier), Watcher Fan (From GotG2), "Hugh" Lee (From Iron Man), and Cranky Old Neighbor Lee (Spider-Man: Homecoming). There are some fun, toyetic costumes AND they'd fit in with the MCU stuff people already have. It's Win-Win! However, we all know that would never happen. Instead, what about a Marvel Through the Ages: Top-Hat-ed Flashback Stan (from the Flashback issues), Wedding Guest Stan (From Reed and Sue's Wedding), A young Editor-in-cheif (you know as the head of 616 marvel comics), and I dunno, Spidey's bestie (from that issue where Stan and Spidey meet, but when he was older). Tied with continuity for fans, without the licensing headaches involved in the MCU, AND they'd fit in with any era of marvel stuff. It's also a Win-Win! Double however, it would never sell. Who wants a four pack of an old man in a top hat with some comics? In the end, it should just be a single pack, sold as a con exclusive. I'd totally buy one.

    I'm all for this happenin! I'd go with the Astronaut Stan Lee, 1970's Stan Lee. Maybe the 1990's Mr. Marvel Stan Lee from the 90's card set. And Hulk hands Stan Lee with alternate Spiderman mask and thwip hands.

    When are we getting a Stan Lee minimate?

    I actually was just thinking about this. I'm surprised we haven't gotten them yet. Put him with a few other influential Marvel creators. Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and... Brian Michael Bendis comes to mind. He's someone that has had a huge influence on current day Marvel's direction

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    I mean, you're not wrong. I just think it looks cool.

    Honestly, I never got the appeal. I don't need one.

    Genius! Now THAT is a DC Vinimate I could not say no to.

    ... that lights up. Seriously, I've been interested in light-up Minimates for years. Seems like Vinimates could do that.
