  1. Oh those look even better than I expected! Wow, now I REALLY can't wait for them.
  2. Have you ever gone to Luke's Minimate Factory blog? He had lots of decals there. I know he posted a pack with some Star Trek decals at some point. I'd strongly encourage you to dig back though his posts and tutorials, especially the ones on decals. Here's the link:
  3. For GA Sandman, I chopped the gasmask part off a fireman and glued it to a fedora piece. That was more of a Sandman Mystery Theater look though. For cowboy hats, the best source for them is the Back to the Future Three box set. There's lots of hats in there, and that one you can get relatively cheap (or at least you could the last time I was making cowboy customs). For Wild Dog and Grifter, I would recommend decals/stickers. I have a Wild Dog decal that I made, but unfortunately it's on an old computer and I'm not sure I can get it working. Grifter I tried to make a decal of, but it was beyond my skill set, so I would second your request! Finally, if you're looking for parts Shapeways is a good place to check. There's some great custom pieces on there, including ones for Judge Dredd, the Rocketeer, and various Masters of the Universe characters.
  4. I've heard that the toy buyer at Walgreens who was responsible for most of their exclusives is no longer with the company. I've not had any problems with the Minimates, but their Marvel Legends exclusives have been a bit of a mess this year.
  5. I saw this and the first thing I thought was that it would be great with Minimates. You could probably even pop in the command chair from the Minimate Enterprise. But MAN is that price point a drawback.
  6. To be fair to DST, Hasbro is still mining the Avengers movies for Marvel Legends figures (they have announced four new figures from them this last week alone) so I think there definitely must still be a market for toys from these movies.
  7. Spanish Inquisition Minimates confirmed.
  8. DST sent out an email promoting their upcoming SDCC exclusive reveals. I sincerely doubt that they will have any Minimates (it's been years since there was a Minimate con exclusive) but I thought it possible that they might have something for GI Joe or Transformers. Heck, since it's the Hasbro license maybe they will make Rom or Micronauts or something. A fella can dream, can't he?
  9. Happy birthday to Luke... and Boyd too!
  10. I am slightly less excited for GI Joe Minimates than Transformers, because I've already made lots of GI Joe customs, but it's still pretty great. By the way, if you can find any of the old MegaBlox Call of Duty sets, they work pretty well as Minimate GI Joe vehicles.
  11. Oh these are so cool! I know that Transformers is a dream property for a lot of the DST team, and you can see it in the designs. Congratulations guys!
  12. This Hall of Justice is one clearance at Entertainment Earth: I ordered one, so I'll let you all know how it looks with Minimates; should be a bit more in scale than the Funko one.
  13. Yeah, Black Panther in that same look is one of my big Minimate wants.
  14. I am not a big fan of retro stuff but I really like these.
  15. Oh, absolutely. I am *dying* for a modular Lego set of their building to put next to my Simpsons house. I picked up the Loyal Subjects figures the other week and they are pretty cool, but not Minimates, y'know.
  16. It's probably pointless to wish for any new Minimate licenses but MAN what I wouldn't give for a What We Do In The Shadows box set.
  17. All right Zach, you finally got me. I'm going to buy the Rocketeer.
  18. Yeah, I like the prompts. And it gives me a good excuse to take a day off.
  19. I'm skipping today, since I'm not a video game guy, but I'll be back tomorrow.
  20. For anyone looking to make the Starjammers, here's a few recipe tips: -Ch'od is actually pretty easy, as a Pathfinder Goblin head on any number of Hulk bodies will fit the bill. -There's a skunk tail from the Peter Pan Minimates that works perfectly for Hepzibah, with a little glue. From there it's really just parts matching to get the look you want, since there are plenty of white female faces (I recommend Lady Death) white hairpieces, and yellow female chest blocks. -Raza is probably the toughest, since there's not going to be a face that matches him, but the Retro X-Force Cable chest is a perfect match for him, as is the Championspool ponytail.
