  1. TRU 25

    Yeah, I don't think it's happened much with Minimates, but you see it all the time on Marvel Legends.

    I can understand the complaints, though I personally don't agree with them. For one thing, the Chameleon's bulky robe looks better with a bulky mask. I do think that separate heads would have been a better way to go, but I like the design here. The play pattern of being able to put the Chameleon mask over different 'mates heads is pretty cool too, though obviously you'd be able to achieve this effect with the head swaps. Oddly enough, the original Chameleon Minimate followed the character's MO more closely, and I definitely prefer the slipover Chameleon mask to the Jameson one.
  3. TRU Series 26

    At least there's no Liefeld art.
  4. WWF Custom Minimate Poll

    Yeah, that would work!
  5. WWF Custom Minimate Poll

    Those seem too big to me. I feel like we've gotten some other sculpted shoulderpieces over the years that would work better.
  6. WWF Custom Minimate Poll

    BTW I have made four wrestling customs: Stone Cold Steve Austin (using the Expendables head, naturally), CM Punk (made in the excitement of his Money in the Bank 2011 win), Daniel Bryan, and Chris Jericho. Looking forward to adding more. I know you're not planning to go up the the Attitude Era from the sounds of it, but I hope you make an exception for the Rock.

    Does this answer your question?

    "I'm, like, really smart".
  9. Black Panther Movie Minimates

    I believe that Walgreens doesn't ship full cases to each store, but breaks them up at their distribution centers and sends individual toys out to each store, which is why you can never be sure what they are gonna get. Obviously this is pretty frustrating. I think Walgreens has gotten much better about this in the last year though.
  10. Funko Pop!

    Funko will get you eventually. That should be their motto.
  11. Well this is going to be fun.
  12. Yeah, they are nice. I don't have the same nostalgia for that packaging that I do, say, the Super Powers packaging (it's hard for me to resist buying ANYTHING on those SP blister cards), but I'm all for anything retro like that. You're right, though, that you probably will never see Minimates in this style any time soon.
  13. wave 74

    I'm still on the fence about this wave, as Surtur is the only one I really want. I'm sure I'll probably end up ordering the set from Luke eventually though. The extra pieces are nice, and there's definitely some good fodder to be had in there. If I recall, a lot of you were unhappy with the coat included for Wolverine in the Days of Future Past box set a few years ago; sure looks like you've got a good replacement here.
  14. I don't think they are going up in price at all. Maybe the early ones. But you can find them for much less than the MSR. Amazon has lots of them, and I see them a lot in the clearance sales on sites like Entertainment Earth and BBTS.
  15. Modifying Marvel Minimates

    Well, the Casket of Ancient Winters is also in that set....
