  1. I really didn't know what to say to this, other than to agree. I think the world economy in general is a minefield of specialized inflation and economic inflation in general. Anything plastic tends to ride the oil/petroleum roller coaster and I can only image Minimates will fall victim. I have often been turned off by the rising costs passed on to consumers. I get more and more picky about what I buy and gave up being a total completionist, long ago. No TRU, no Walgreens, no LCS, and almost no comic conventions, so I rarely even see them in the wild anymore. Packaging can be entertaining, but I am a mostly loose collector, so they may as well be in brown bags, as far as I am concerned.
  2. I saw the Hulk Minimate proto on RTM and knew I had to have one when released. I've been hooked ever since.
  3. I never thought we would see GI Joe or Transformers. Seemingly unobtainable, but now reality. I am not holding my breathe, but I am an optimistic collector.
  4. I knew you'd be back. I'm also glad you're back brother!
  5. Congrats folks! This is a truly rare and unique Minimate. Thanks to Zach for breaking these out.
  6. I have always loved the promos. Yes, they can sometimes be a struggle for completists like myself, but they are usually fun to hunt. Thanks Zach for the giveaways!
  7. Awesome! Thanks Zach for giving it away. Little bit of trivia, I was told long ago that this Minimate was designed to look like former Minimate painter Eddie Wires (RIP).
  8. I would like to see them and I feel like there is enough there to spread out over a few wave, with more coming.
  9. I have a couple already so I don't need another, but thanks for offering these up Zach!
  10. The Chef Duff set was also back in the "wild west" days of Minimates, before DST got the medium.
  11. To me, different facial expressions make it an entirely different figure, even if it is of the same character, with its own need to be collected...
  12. There was some perceived threat in the little tone you can glean from worded post. I myself thought maybe you were angry about something, so I reached out.
  13. Its not about voicing opinion. Its how people voice their opinion.
  14. As always, thanks for the heads up Zach. As for the berating DSTs exclusives, lets not get personal. Make your opinion known and move on. This place has always been a sounding board for opinions on DSTs (and many others) offerings, but it is NOT a place to abuse others about their love or hate of said offerings. The world is toxic enough, don't bring it here.
  15. Sounds like a very interesting position, but I am not prepared to move.
  16. Can't wait to learn the news! These are my favorite promos and thy are quite hard to find. Thanks Zach!
  17. Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2021 is good to every one of you.
  18. A lot of the Kubrick SW designs are based on the old Kenner designs, which is cool. However, a fresh approach might work. I think its all hot air really, but it would be a game changer for us as collectors.
  19. Always been this way. We can buy a security certificate that will make it "secure", but I haven't. There has still been some trouble with our hosting service and I am planning to move to IPBs hosting when our current contract ends. At this point I will obtain a certification making us "secure".
  20. Thanks for this. I have been working with IPB. Already installed a patch and still working.
