  1. I don't consider the PVC mini statues a competitor for Minimates. I have the Thanos on its way to me and a comparison with Minimates never crossed my mind. Just my opinion. Any chance at more Godzilla minis is great news. Ultraman next please!

    Diamond Select Toys purchases Gentle Giant

    Gentle Giant was doomed once they took on the "rock star" persona. The fanbase was not there for the staff, it was there for the product. Some of it was great, some of it not so much. I have quite a bit of GG stuff and absolutely love most of what I have. I hope this creates new avenues for everyone involved.

    DC Minimates & everlasting optimism

    Minimates and Lego Minifigs are just not the same to me, but I can understand how license mumbo jumbo might perceive them as such. Regardless, the relationship would need to be lucrative for both parties and maybe it just isn't.

    DC Minimates & everlasting optimism

    The actual grudge, if there was one, is unknown to me. I had access to a decision maker and asked why they quit on the DC Minimates. I don't remember the exact quote, but it amounted to "don't like them". The person is long gone, but was there for a fairly long time, too. I am not trying to put words in their mouth, but it was said with an arrogant smirk that ended the conversation.

    DC Minimates & everlasting optimism

    In my modest, non-insider opinion, I have always felt that there were people at DC brand development that just did not like the Minimate medium. One guy in particular practically admitted it to my face. A lot of those folks are gone now, so I still keep hope flickering.

    Where did everybody go?

    X-files was already done by Palz.

    We may do something again in the future. I am hoping we can put together a Geppi Mate type pack but a BHM-Mate instead.

    Where did everybody go?

    Tim is still around but a lot less active. I agree about posting pictures. It would be a lot easier if the Multiverse could host them like we did in the beginning, but server space blew up. MPL, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my Dad 17 years ago and I understand the hole it can leave in your life. My sincere condolences.

    Where did everybody go?

    There are still a lot of old-timers around and we still get new folks all the time, but I think the instant gratification crowd does most of their conversing on FB. I just got some NYCC Battle Beasts to give away, so some folks will trudge back over for that.

    Seattle-Area Multiversers?

    This used to be a popular one as we had quite a population there, but I know a few of the more active collectors moved away.
