    wave 79

    I'm definitely looking forward to Darkhawk, gotta add him to my lovely '90s nostalgia of Thunderstrike, Silver Sable, and now him. Moondragon will be cool to have too. Now just feel a serious need of Deathlok and Sleepwalker.

    wave 79

    Have we still not got hi res Pics of the wave?
  7. The Angela Mate still doesn't make sense to me. I would've much rather have seen Gladiator, Beta Ray Bill, or current Groot with a few little Groots as accessories.
  8. Yesterday
  9. The Legion of Doom (a.k.a. the Road Warriors) are up for preorder! This set of customs is a limited edition of 25, and you can preorder them here:

    wave 77

    This wave is amazing!
  12. Minimates definitely offers some obscure characters so if that’s your jam, you’ve found the right toy line! (Plus they don’t take up much space.) Welcome aboard!
  13. Hey there, first post on the board (outside of my intro) so figured I'd share my Wishlist. Since I love Ron Frenz/Tom DeFalco stuff, I went with the alternate time-line MC2 I figured 3-4 packs and a Build-A-Mate Thunderstrike & American Dream Spider-Girl & DarkDevil Stinger & Wild Thing Mainframe & The Buzz* Build-A-Mate: J2 I figured The top three packs would have the most overall appeal due to most characters having either their own Mini-Series or being very central to the books they were in. Mainframe and The Buzz are kind of the "Drop it if we only get three packs from now on" and while The Buzz is a weird pick, I didn't want to just pick one member of the Fantastic Five and leave out the others. Also, Stinger could have crossover appeal to 616 Universe due to Cassie becoming Stinger in the more recent Scott Lang series. And BAF of J-2 allows for the bigger pieces to be spread out over time. If I had my perfect world, I'd add a F5 boxset and call it a day.
  14. So I've been lurking around for like, a year, but then finally decided to join. I've be not been religiously collecting Minimates since the beginning, and wish I had, but started to get into them on a character basis. I'm a big fan of B-level (or lower) Marvel Characters, so the first minimate I got was actually of my favorite character Thunderstrike. I've been very happy to get characters like Silver Sable, Sandman, Alpha Flight, and others, and used to display my collection alongside my Trades, but my nephews started to knock them off the shelf and lose pieces, so now they wait for a higher shelf. Glad to be on the board, as this is such a great resource!
  15. I suggested remaining thread to Walgreens minimates months ago...
  16. Very cool, Mattalica! I have been playing with my Vinimates! Trying to shoot my advance samples of the Halloween COmicFest variants.
  17. Nobody been playing with their vinimates of late?
  18. Yeah, they're probably hanging out with Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
  19. Yeah. It’s looking like my symbiote box is getting fuller. First-world problems.
  20. Between this, the Through the Ages set, and all the symbiote variants there's definitely enough to merit it. That, or split them up.
  21. Selects/IMG_6269__scaled_800.jpg Many of my Minimates are archived by character. Hulk gets a box, Cap gets a box, Spidey gets a box. Where am I supposed to put the Maximum Venom ‘mates? And should we retitle this thread to Walgreens Minimates?
  22. I think it depends on how you are defining confidence. We have to remember that we are a small niche community and there are other Minimate collectors that don’t engage with us and may actually be happy and not have any worries.
  23. If you include all the Best Of/Greatest Hits/TRU/Walgreens waves, Marvel Minimates are around 150 "waves" without counting any boxsets or convention exclusives. That seems like something a business would want to try and capitalize on, especially when confidence in the brand is at a low.
