    DC Vinimates

    Love the Keaton Bats. It also kinda hurts because this as a Minimate....
  2. I thought the same thing, but what do I know...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Good to hear. I thought maybe they came and went, just that fast.
  12. Yes, I am. My main suit is ANH Stormtrooper. However, I also have an Imperial Bridge Crew and an ANH TIE Pilot. Once I build the helmet, I will finish an Imperial Gunner. Get to building!
  13. I have been checking the shop since I learned the extras would sell there. This is progress(?)(!)(.) Choose your own punctuation.
  14. I probably have more opportunities to see tigers than most. Louisiana State University uses the tiger as the school mascot and has a live one on campus. Plus, I am at the local zoo a lot as a member of the 501st Legion. I have never seen a fat tiger, though.
  15. Is that real? Never seen a fat Tiger, but things are rarely what they seem these days.
  16. Saga is an incredible story, IMO. Its been a top selling book for some time, but has not gotten a lot of mainstream attention.
  17. I have a few. Hulks, Thanos, an Iron Man. There are plenty more I'd like.
  18. We will be giving a few away when I have them in hand,
  19. I am happy to see this. I thought the Battle Beasts dead and buried, but here we are and its a Minimate exclusive. Given take it or leave it, I will take it.
  20. Agreed. Also, the Predator in that film is a beast and would make a good Minimate, IMO.
