  1. Thanks for the update.... I get it ... still bummed. I'm very, very excited for both of these properties!!! Do we have a date for GI Joe series 1 yet? It seemed like everything got pushed back. Is the plan to alternate between Transformers, Power Rangers, GI Joe? Thanks again
  2. Hey Zach, was there any specific reasons for not showing D&D and the GI Joe series 3 and 4(cannot remember if 4 was ever mentioned as a possibility or not)... Pretty bummed we didn't see those. ðŸ˜Đ😔
  3. Not yet...for a few reasons...not in any particular order... -The cost of these custom figures is very high ( based on reactions of the minimates price increases, you guys would flip). So, my priority is to go literally by my own character ranking. -Based on my own Ranking, female characters are not near the top. I don't tend to collect many,if any, female characters. For me, anything i collect (except mezco 0ne:12) is based purely on nostalgia, and/or memories of my brother and I playing in the backyard, or in our bedroom. Those are the characters i love the most. -disclaimer, lol... I love women, I just don't need toys of them ðŸĪŠ My wife has even been compared to the Baroness (coincidentally, by some folks on this board) I will buy every GI Joe minimate, and will proudly display the ladies, but in my head there's other characters I'd have preferred in those slots.😎
  4. Same for my Megatron...But, other than loose shoulders,I think he may be the best of all the Transformers mates (Bumblebee close 2nd).
  5. OK, don't beat me up too bad over this pic...But, this is what I'd hope to eventually do with minimates...I started tracking these down before i ever knew there'd be minimates, or I may not have. I also have built a bunch of the vehicles, and am working on the GI Joe Headquarters. Still a bit to go for that though. A few little mods and i was able to fit minimates into the vehicles i made, and they actually look a little more in scale, so bonus 🙂
  6. I'd be all over that...I think minimates is the perfect line of toys to pull off something like this...Which is why I still love them...
  7. I'll take one... these could be great con exclusives.... i want one from the Viper episode and cold slither too !!!
  8. And knowing is half the battle... had to do it, lol
  9. Thanks! ha!, had one planned, even have his little neckerchief ready to go! ... never say never, lol Thanks!
  10. Wow, that;s perfect... what scale?
  11. Thanks so much! I love all the older costumes!
  12. Ha! you bet... i bought the marshal willenholly figure specifically for his hat to use for the Sarge. If it looks like he will not be made (due to licensing issues possibly) then i will make him, but I'm planning to just collect The Joes (except for Starduster, which i'll make whenever i get a second Duke) I'm excited to just collect these. I've wanted them from the start, and it is one of the reasons i started making customs in the first place. Now i don't have to , and that makes me very happy 🙂 Hey thanks!
  13. Thanks fellas... Zach, same for me... i think it was his killer backpack. I used him for every backyard mission i could think of, lol here's a few close ups of the joes. I had plans of doing all original 13 and a whole bunch of characters, but these are pretty much where i was when the Joe minimates were announced, so i buttoned up a few things and called it a day. Not sure if i'll be making many more customs for the Joes/Cobras. I'm hoping all my faves get made. There are only a few i think I'll have to make who I doubt they will get to, Like Starduster, so I'll make him as soon as i get Duke, because he uses his straps (or Recondo's, depending on which version you make). Just for fun I might make some of the toon characters like The Viper, or Hector Ramirez, Col. Sharp, Mara, Ramar, Honda Lou etc...
  14. This is an important statement... Most of my minimates career (going on 20 years now) has been looking and scouting parts that would work to make different GI Joe/Thundercats/etc... customs. It is really the only reason i started making customs, to have my favorite characters in the minimates form. So now, with all the Hasbro stuff, I really don't have to do that anymore, which is a little sad, but also makes me very happy, because these are the ones I've wanted the entire time... It hits the most true with D&D because the parts and accessories are so unique to each character, I've never been able to make them the way I'd like to. I'm looking forward to this next phase of minimates, where i just collect, enjoy, and don't have to modify anything, lol
  15. Me again... not sure if many folks are still doing customs. I've been plugging along for the last few years and putting together a bunch of public domain heroes... most of these guys I pulled from Project Superpowers... and the molten man is a stand in for Man 'o Metal (which I've since finished, along witha handful more. Might only be a few people who would actually care about these characters here, but I love the old 1940's costumes. Thanks for looking.
  16. Hey gang, I made this a few years ago, wanted to post and forgot to, better late than never... Cant wait for more Joes!
  17. Yassss! Warduke! OK, so this line might seriously be in my top 3 lines of minimates, along with GI Joe and Thundercats. And the fact that these and the Joes are new stuff has me feeling like the best is yet to come with minimates!
  18. This is almost the same for me...I loved the D&D cartoon, and hoped for figures forever ... I got back in with bigger figs a few years ago when Super 7 started to offer the rest of the thundercats, and even silverhawks which i'm looking forward to.. But even if that didnt happen, i was all in for Gargoyles and Can't wait for Warduke to show up, he looks fantastic!!! ps, i won't talk about my mezco stuff 🙄
  19. I'm guessing Uni and Dungeonmaster for the mini-minimates ... I also hope, since i believe were both in the cartoon, that we see Strongheart and Warduke. Those two, plus the main toon cast, are characters I have wanted to make for so long. It is a tough one for customizers, since each figure would require a bunch of new accesories and parts. This line is up there with me, as much as Thundercats and GI Joe. Was hoping for all three since the early days ... 20 years ago at this point! I'm loving this new age of minimates. I'm happy DST hasn't given up on our favorite little figures. Only a few other properties would get me this pumped... I still hope for Hanna-Barbera, MOTU, Silvehawks and Battle Of the Planets...
  20. Maybe I'm alone in this, but for any old-school G.I.Joe fan to not want single carded figs, sounds crazy to me. The card art, to me and my brother at least, was all part of the fun. We'd stare at them (front and back) for hours picking out who our favorites were, and who we thought the silhouetted characters could be for the next waves. It was a lot of fun. We aren't getting a lot of mates at the moment, so i'm perfectly fine with paying an extra ten bucks. These look awesome to me. My only gripe is that the card art isn't in the form of a minimate. I asked DonnyB many years ago if he'd be interested in replicating the card art for me for my Joe customs, because i thought it'd look awesome. I know I'm happy, and can't wait to see the next few waves and hopefully get a few vehicles down the road! Cheers! your pal, Nerv
  21. Same for me... I always had Him and Warduke closeby, even with my Joes (plus a few super powers figs lol) I'd love either toon or toyline just as much as i'm loving the Joes!
  22. Same for me... Warduke! But I'd be also just as happy if it was the old cartoon. I've been wanting to make those for quite some time, I'd gladly let DST do the work for me!
  23. Hey HP and Lobby.... I haven't touched my ALPS in years, and still have a bunch of ribbon cartridges for it. If either of you would like to fiddle with it, I'd be happy to let go of it...
