    Modifying Marvel Minimates

    Yes, all the Spartans have blank black heads underneath, except for: Jorge, Jun, Carter, and Kat.

    wave 77

    If wave 77 hasn't been finalised yet, I don't see it showing up this year. Movies being relegated to box sets at specialty seems to have increased the opportunity for comic waves, since we have three this year and only one last year.
  4. I mentioned Incredibles in the "Minimate Compatibility" thread. The 1:24 diecast Incredibile from Incredibles 2 can squeeze a couple standard Minimates in it. Tight squeeze. They look really good standing next to it though. May still be able to find it at TRU. DST wouldn't even necessarily need to get the license... couldn't the Disney Store say, hey make us Minimates for Incredibles like they did previously for Peter Pan?

    Modifying Marvel Minimates

    Nevermind, i've found one: http://www.minimatedatabase.com/figure.php?i=1379&n=ODST+(Rookie) Are all the Halo ones like that underneath the helmet?

    Can anyone think of a good existing head for this? (Keeping in mind, it needs a hole on top so I can get the hat on.)

    wave 77

    Are things slowing down with "regular" LCS wave planning? Fun Facts: since 2003, the average number of LCS waves annually has been 4.8 ...with a peak 8 waves in 2009 ...and a low 2 waves in 2006 2016 saw 7 waves, while 2017 dropped to 3 We're currently looking at 3 waves for 2018, 4 if a W77 materializes before EOY

    wave 77

    That's what sold me on them, too. I had no interest in block figures. The style was fun but they generally seemed pretty restricted when it came to poseability. Then I got my mitts on those 3-inch Trek Minimates and, yeah, I was impressed.
  10. Yeah minimates would be better. Their uniforms would really pop on a minimate body. I can see Mr. Incredible with the bulked up chest, arms and regular legs. Elastigirl could reuse some of Mr. Fantastic's parts. Each two pack could come with a different Jack-Jack microfigure.

    Do you need one?

    wave 77

    My addiction started when I had to shoot every Marvel Minimate made to that point in different poses and environments for a price guide and realized they could hit EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.

    Then there's the other world ........

    When more were made for alternate distribution, the micro colors were changed. I honestly forget which is more common, or even which color went where. Whatever the rarer one is, it was the one given to employees, I believe. They seem less likely to part with them.

    My addiction started at Target as well. My mother thought it would be cute to buy me toys for my 36th birthday. Six 6-inch Star Trek 'mates later and I was hooked. Thanks, Mom.

    Then there's the other world ........

    The Geppimate is packaged with 2 micromates & various catalogues ......it would appear (from what I have seen on ebay.com) that the rarer package contains different coloured versions of these accessories. Zach calls these the 'home office Geppi' ..........' a Baltimore home run' perhaps ?

    wave 77

    i never saw minimates at walmart but i think i started collecting minimates with the last wave that target had (i got spider-woman and ghost rider there, i think?). i would love if Target started carrying them again!

    wave 77

    Wow i didnt know Walmart had Vinimates. I myself remember seein minimates at Target before walmart. I hope Target gets minimates again.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    So I'm trying a thing out. The arms, legs, and hair are just gonna be a matter of getting the right color paint, so that shouldn't be a problem. The hands will just be an easy swap, too. The only thing I'm stuck on is the face. I can't get a good scan of it, to work off of, and I'm not good enough at Photoshop to eyeball it. I'm thinking maybe carefully acetone-ing the synth blood?

    wave 77

    Same. I love your Buffy Mates and also have been making my own with their accessories.
  21. Incredibles is definitely my #1 most wanted Minimate line. I made a Mr. Incredible custom at one point, but haven't made the rest of the family. I should. Not to mention converting a Blizzard figure to Frozone is pretty easy....

    wave 77

    Thanks! The Buffy Palz line was great, I wish Palisades Toys would have lasted longer. I would also love a Dr. Strange crossed legs/levitation cape minimate. It would make it different from the rest.
  23. The Lego minifigures for The Incredibles are pretty sad. The characters have such different body styles that the Lego body just doesn't lend itself well to that kind of variety. Minimates would be better.

    wave 77

    Probably not there, but they have VInimates now, so....

    I'd buy another but I already have three! It's a great piece.

    Could we see a return to Walmart like in the good old days? That's where I got my first ever set!
