  1. A very, very belated welcome to you. Ah - the tragedy of loving minimates, but residing outside of the U.S. Very luckily, the community here are extremely generous and do an amazing job of helping folks out. I owe my collection to a combination of the lurkers on this forum.
  2. Super exciting news. Can't wait to start seeing some of the reveals.
  3. Oooooh - very excited. Will there be any X-Men characters/supporting characters?
  4. 2012 was the first (and only) time I've managed to make it to SDCC (from Australia). I was so damn jazzed to see a DST panel IRL and meet people I'd been chatting to online for years. AND this is one of the exclusives I actually have. Very cool giveaway.
  5. Damn - that *is* a nice surprise. I cry at the thought of what other BAFs were planned before they got the chop. Would love to have seen a Deathbird or a Raza in the Phoenix Saga wave.
  6. So - the 'all in' package was $290... which comes to like 380 in Oz dollars before shipping, so I couldn't justify that on a game I had never played before. I just got the base set, even though I'd love all those other add ons. I did get the game mat though... thought it would make it a bit more speccy when having mates over to play.
  7. They look so cool together like that. I've been thinking about pairing back my collection and maybe letting go of a few waves and some army builders, but this is convincing me to keep all of my Sentinels!
  8. I know people might be a little wary of Kickstarter campaigns after the 88 fiasco, but is anyone looking into the Marvel United X-Men campaign? It looks like a fun tabletop game with a bunch of cute minifigures/game pieces. There are also HEAPS of add-ons; Blue team, Gold team, First Class as well as a bunch of already existing Marvel Universe versions (Asgard, Black Panther, GotG, etc...) I'm very tempted to back this one. CMON seem to have had pretty good success with their campaigns.
  9. Right? As soon as I saw these Luke post online that they were up I pre-ordered! I know this is more of an indictment of the year that was 2020, but looking back through my emails it seems that aside from customs, I haven't ordered Minimates since 2019! I can't wait for these to ship!
  10. Are they interested in sponsoring foreign candidate's visa applications? Asking for a friend.
  11. *SQUEE* Most eagerly anticipated release in the last year or two of Minimates. Can't wait to get em.
  12. I have a loooooong drive interstate tomorrow. I'll see if I can stop a couple of times during the day and invite you (and @Onyx_6) to a couple Uxie raids on my way there. That should make them at closer to a reasonable hour. I'm DiscØnaut#0762 on Discord.
  13. I have discord if you want to get a raid chat going on there. As for Aussie times, after work is often best - so 6-8ish, but I have no idea what time that is where you are? I can also sometimes do during the work day from my desk, but I suspect Nate (my partner) can't do during the day.
  14. My partner would love some folks in the US and Europe to trade with and raid with. Would any of my friends here be willing to add his accounts? 5406 1836 9805 6434 0415 4408 EDIT: Here's an other Aussie account: 6294 5532 8620
  15. Oh - Are they coming back? Yes! Let's invite each-other to a few as soon as they pop up.
  16. Of you have a look at the third picture, there's a sneaky little Cable-pool minimate in the middle row on the far right (next to Phoenix) for size comparison.
  17. I'm based in Canberra. It's the nation's capital, but isn't very well known outside of Australia. LOL
  18. Ok - So I jut did a bit of googling and it turns out that anko is K Mart's in house brand. I also found out that it does not exist in America because K Mart Australia and K Mart Us are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COMAPNIES 🤯 Apparently Australian parent company Westfarmers had a license agreement with the parent company of the US's K Mart to use the name until 2017, at which point they bought the name outright for use within Australia. The two K Marts have completely different parent companies and so despite the name, there is no link between them. TL:DR - this product doesn't look like its available in K Mart US. So my previous post appears to just be for my Australian plastic crack addicts. Sorry folks
  19. Apologies if this is not the best place for it, but happy for a mod to move it as needed.I found these display stands that I thought might work well for minimates. Anko seems to be the in house discount brand in KMart here, so not sure if it'll exist in the US or UK. They're designed for lego-style mini figures. Each display has three shelves with a sliding clear plastic window on the front. The shelves each have 4 little 'lego' plates in them to peg peg mini figures on to, but they're removable if you wanna put minimates in there instead. The case retails for $20.00 here, so I imagine it'd be about $10 if available in the US.
  20. Just realised that I can take Strong Guy, Lilandra and Mockingbird of my Top 10 Marvel Most Wanted list. It's a nice feeling to be able to do that! Can't wait for the pre-orders of the Phoenix wave to go live. I suspect Corsair might have been one of the characters to go onto my list next, but since he's in the already in the Phoenix wave, I'm going to go with: Locus; Capullo Sunspot; Stryfe; Sebastian Shaw; Random; Vertigo; Wasp; Penance; Exodus & Deathbird. I feel like my list is getting more and more obscure as time goes on. Which is a good sign for the line.
  21. Wooooooooooh! That is a CRAZY looking creature. Can't wait to see how you're going to customise a minimate to fit this! Will you be using a more animalistic base like Big Chap or something from the Godzilla line?
  22. Ah - this hits me right in the nostalgia. Will be chasing a set, for sure! I'm wondering if this might mean that all those folks who wanted a Morph figure will finally get one!
