  1. It is not at all what I wanted or expected, but it’s a blast. I get how it can be over the top for people who were expecting something along the lines of Batman: The Animated Series or Young Justice though. DC has cranked out “dark and serious” stuff over and over again. This is a welcome breath of fresh air for me.
  2. I just finished both seasons of Harley Quinn on HBO Max and I gotta say, this show is perfect for the Minimates treatment. There are tons of unique characters and costumes. There’s a solid mix of “A-list” characters and “C/D-listers”. It seems to have a large cult following that is still growing. Harley Quinn as a character has her own cult following. No other toy lines have released product for this show. And mostly, it’s another chance to get some new DC Minimates (similar to the Gotham show). Harley has at least 3-4 different costumes. The supporting characters are amazing. The entire Justice League and bat-rogues galley is in it. I can see several different series just from two seasons. Harley Quinn and Killer Shark. Poison Ivy and Kite Man. Harleen Quinzel and Joker. Batman and Clayface. Dr. Psycho and Wonder Woman. Harley Quinn (OG costume) and Riddler. Sy Borgman and Frank. Queen of Fables and Superman. Commissioner Gordon and Batgirl. Catwoman and Bane. Two-Face and Scarecrow. Aquaman and bathing suit Harley. Darkseid and super powered Harley. This list goes on and on.
  3. I’d also like to add that releasing a GotG wave, then Guardian in a follow-up X-Men wave, and black Silver Surfer in a follow-up Fantastic Four wave isn’t a bad idea. Can we do Beta Ray and a newer Thor costume and wave next?
  4. I dig these. Sold. Please, PLEASE keep the modern characters/costumes coming.
  5. I hadn’t thought of that. Unfortunately the ML Sentinels don’t ship for another year. But hey, I’ve already got a dozen or so Minimate sentinels to hold me over until then.
  6. I bought three. They’re intended for display with my Marvel Legends, but I’m sure I’ll set up some Minimates around them at some point just for giggles. Those things are massive.
  7. I’ve been reading the HoX/PoX and Dawn of X titles as they’ve been added to Marvel Unlimited and I can’t recommend them enough. These are the comics I expect to read in 2020. There are some genuinely new and fresh stories going on here and some truly progressive ideas that don’t come across as pandering or heavy-handed (to me). With that said, I think Xavier, white suit Magneto, ponytail Storm, and blue suit Cyclops are absolute musts. But there are SO many other awesome possibilities: Kate Pryde (with red scarf and additional broken nose head) and Lockheed Apocalypse in a suit Wolverine (updated brown suit) Cable (young) Beast (for the love of mates, we don’t have a good modern Beast) Emma Frost (white suit) Magik (black costume) Jeez. I could go on and on. Modern mutants have really gotten the shaft since that ordeal with Fox.
  8. Are you implying that Age of X box set wasn’t at the top of everyone’s wish list? /s
  9. Yes please. The “film” and “cinema” snobbery are getting unbearable.
  10. With the big resurgence of X characters, what Dawn of X minimates would you like to see get made? The brown-suit Wolverine and Marvel Girl Jean Grey we have are a pretty good start. Personally, I’d also like to see: Xavier and Cyclops Beast and Storm Magik and white-suit Magneto young Cable and Kitty Pryde
  11. Thanks for the compliments dudes! Unfortunately, there's no recipe here. Just my first shot at painting a regular Nightcrawler minimate with some details added with a Gundam marker.
  12. Some shots of two of my favorite Marvel teams.
  13. Just a heads up. I was goofing around tonight and managed a pretty decent QC MCU Mysterio. No painting! Wave 71 Mysterio, Red King chest block, space suit Wolverine boots and belt. I also added the Prototype Suit Miles Morales head to MCU Shocker to give him a more costumed look. Enjoy!
  14. Spotted in Kentucky. I gotta say, the minimates themselves looks fantastic. I'm happy to add Taskmaster to my collection. However, these new shields are awful. For those of you who haven't gotten the sets, DST has replaced the peg and hole shields we know and (I assume) love with an L shaped handle on the back of the shield that the minimate hands hold. At first I thought I was being nitpicky, but the handle is huge and keeps popping out of my minimate's hands. I also feel like it limits posing without looking silly. Did this change really save that much money? I don't feel like it's worth it at all. Also, Taskmaster's hood/shoulder pad combo kind of limits such a dynamic character's posing options too. Just a thought.
  15. As soon as I saw that piece I started thinking about which character was gonna get it. Reed may be the one. Genius!
