  1. Alright, far from perfect but here's my start on a custom MCU Mysterio. Biggest part is going to be trimming up the cape aaaaaand learning Illustrator to make a decent decal for the chest piece. Thinking I'll switch out arms and legs for the TRU version once I can afford it. Need green hands too!
  2. I'd switch a couple of those out for Elementals maybe, but throw in some great accessories with civilian 'mates and that's a done deal. My best case scenario would be a retconned boxset with Mysterio, stealth suit, upgraded suit, and MJ. Ned isn't a necessity for me, though I certainly wouldn't mind him!
  3. Alright this has been bothering me long enough- anyone have good ideas for Mysterio? I think I'm really only struggling with what to use for a chest piece. Everything else more or less is doable with the past comic Mysterios
  4. Yep! Just cut straight across at the base on each side for one of them, cut the other about halfway down the blade, and then glue the longer tips onto the longer bases.
  5. The two swords works out to any customizer's favor- quick combo makes for a pretty perfect size and a much less "chunky" look. Just needs some paint over the seam.
  6. I actually felt the opposite!! War Machine looks great for what he was, but Ronin suffers a bit from the bulky jacket. Would have loved for him to only have a printed chest. I think Thanos suffers a bit too from over-bulking. Not much pose-ablity in either but still great looking figures. These were well worth the wait!!
  7. Battle damaged/ mud covered cap from the second Civil War assortment is what I'm using. The dirt covers up enough to make it okay. Not perfect, but better than nothing!
  8. Difficult to say... Honestly I'd drop your ideal price slightly and open it up to bidding. People would either go crazy over this or not at all
  9. My bad, was thinking since the movie's out we were all clear but you're right
  10. While we're on this topic, and maybe a better question for Zach, but is it possible to make 'mates from past movies, and if not then why? Hasbro had a great run with the 10 year figures and they seemed fairly sought after. Seems odd to me that DST wouldn't try and capitalize in the same way. Maybe not full-fledged but con exclusives or even specialty store boxsets for all us die hards...
  11. As will Funko too, I'd imagine. So that begs the question why no retconning for all these fantastic new looks... This, along with the complete lack of anything for Far From Home really has me curious.
  12. Anyone have any ideas for a good hairpiece for Hawkeye? Daken's seems a little large and not totally accurate as only the sides of his head are shaved.
  13. Would you mind posting posting that file if possible here?? I'd love to see that info!
  14. Well I'm glad to be wrong! These look pretty great, Hulk is just creeping me out a little bit... Anyone know which past Thor chainlink arms would work best for his armored up look?
  15. But is it out there though? Zach said dropping soon, which could be next week or even two weeks. Wouldn't think that meant immediately...
  16. Well good thing this is a forum for toys and not self verification then... But with spoilergate done now, why is everyone in a hustle trying to find the Endgame wave? Have some been spotted in the wild? Also with the line up confirmed it seems pretty standard to what all else has been shown in the wild- Funko, Lego, etc. Glad we're not getting another Carol, bummed about the QS Thor/Cap though those will be easy kitbashes for updated looks so long as we get Stormbreaker. Not holding my breath for post-release waves or exclusives, though there were some rumored appearances I'll be sad not to see in MCU minimate form!
  17. I'd be surprised if that turned out to be true in all honestly. I mean still dial back on any form of spoilers, but still...
  18. They nailed it with Jeremy Renner's likeness this time
  19. New trailer with some new (clearer) looks revealed. My best case scenario would be getting regular looks for characters with white suits as add-on parts. I miss the days of two full comic assortments, retailer exclusives, various convention exclusives, and blind bags. Really got spoiled with Ultron... Also this is the most comic-accurate Rocket so far, be a shame not to get that in 'mate form!
  20. Not so bad, though I feel there is another gold armored print that could do better. I've seen people customizing legos for Mysterio with the Atlantan's chest piece from Aquaman. Looks pretty accurate. I'm just in disbelief that we won't be seeing anything for Far From Home. Of all the MCU movies to skip I just cannot wrap my head around it. I've collected all things MCU since the first Iron Man and while I love looking forward to and hunting new mates, the collection has been getting robust. This my be the impetus for me to drop Minimates. As sad as that is for me to think about.
  21. Trailer dropped, so I figured it was time to start this. This has potential to be a really great wave...
  22. Anyone know if there is a working UPC tracker for Walgreens? As great as the hunt is, the time and gas involved tends to make it not worth it...
  23. Drax from 1st Guardians movie wave got the same treatment, I think it's an awful chest piece... I miss the toned bulked-up piece that was used for Hulk in that film's wave. Would've been perfect for Drax too
  24. Courtesy of this lucky finder! Sorry for layout and quality of image. Hopefully we can get some official yay shots soon. I am incredibly excited to find this wave. Every figure is looking fantastic. It is a bit of a bummer to only be getting one Skrull and that all the bodies are essentially reprints, but I'm stoked to be getting the full Star Force assortment AND Ronan with an *accurate universal weapon
