  1. Insane! Big props to you for the dedication, Luke. Know that your work is greatly appreciated 🤘 Honestly, it's the only thing that keeps me interested in Minimates anymore!
  2. Simple hair swap could give you WCW Rick Rude, as well.
  3. That man's career, and life, were cut far too short. He was an awesome talent. WWE Network has some of his pre-WWE matches in WCCW which are interesting to see. Wrestling ain't what it used to be.
  4. So, in theory, DST could release very large, retro-styled GI Joes now? I'm sure that's the furthest thing from anyone's priority over there, but it kills me that we never got any of the classic '84 or '85 figures done in that line, like Storm Shadow, Firefly, Zartan, Flint, and '85 Snake Eyes.
  5. Just seeing this news. One of my favorite game franchises, and possibly the best translation of a video game to a tv show or movie I'm aware of.
  6. Anyone here ever take a trip down to Cobb County, Georgia? You couldn't easily get away with a good guy rassler sporting a rebel flag patch on his arm nowadays in my opinion. We also had a GI Joe from that time with a rebel flag belt buckle.
  7. I think New Japan would be more likely to go with Kubricks, or even a MUSCLE-type gashapon line. But something like All Elite could get some real traction out of Minimates. I don't think WWE would go that route. Profit potential isn't great frankly, and they've carved out a nice niche for themselves with the 6 inch toys. But just for getting the word out, and providing something to fans, a burgeoning independent outfit would make a lot of sense. I'm getting all the figures from Luke's subscription. I've been fantasizing about custom wrestling Minimates for years, and even asked Luke to do a custom Hart for me prior to his taking on his current project. It's frankly the only Minimate line I'm interested in at the moment, and if we got something official, I would probably be interested, though I'm more into the classic characters than newer ones.
  8. Those faces are terrific! Spot on. Can't wait for this one. Dibiase is one of the few professional wrestlers I have met in person.
  9. This weekend all the former special event Pokemon are reappearing. I already caught several Dratinis and Larvitar this afternoon.
  10. Though my interest in all collectible things has waned over the last few years, the increased cost of Minimates has been an issue, impacting my willingness to collect. But it has been happening with everything. MP Transformers used to go for $50-70 a piece, and now they're typically over $100. Closer to $200 for Megatron, and apparently over $400 for the new Optimus Prime! Hot Toys figures also are now typically in the $235-250 range even for fairly basic figures. This is why we need the federal reserve hiking those interest rates!
