  1. Prowlar, Really like your concept of the Nubian Avengers. They are a great Alternate-Reality creation. Always enjoy your posts and the concepts you put into your customs. Thank you. Seems like your locale Walgreens got Endgame MiniMates, wish my local stores would get them. Captain Paco
  2. Good Job to all the winners. All the entries were very good and worthy of praise. I wish I could have voted for all of them to be number one. There is a lot of talent in this Multiverse.
  3. Luke, you had some awesome entries for this contest. I wanted to try to make something to enter in the contest, but too busy. However, you have some very GREAT entries and I wish everyone the best of luck. I really like the possibilities of Alternate Universes and all those who were able to submit and entry to this contest did a great job. I would vote for all of you if it was an option.
  4. I hope that MiniMates keep going on and on. It is just a matter of finding the proper distribution method that will get them out there better than Walgreens has been. There are six Walgreens in my metro area. I have found Captain Marvel MiniMates at only one of those six locations and still no sign of Endgame. However, Walgreens is partially to blame as they have the same sku code for the Animated Mates and the same sku code for the Movie Mates so they can't clearance out their lines to make room for the new stuff. My metro area has not seen the last three waves of the Animated Mates due to so many past waves just hanging around and not selling. I would love to see Target start selling MiniMates again along with Walmart. I have ordered MiniMates from Walmart.com and Target.com but they are from a third party vendor who works with the two retailers for the online sales. I just got my nephew into them as Toys R Us died. While he is not into Star Trek like I am, he is liking the Marvel and Aliens Lines. I would really hope that MiniMates can rise up and from the loss of TRU and re-establish their brand in the toy world once again.
  5. Prowlar, nice work on your recent customs. Loving the third and fourth in the top row. I also like most of the Starforce customs. So good work and I only wish I was that creative and had the funds to purchase the numbers to make the many customs.
  6. I agree, we want more Trek Mates from the expanded Trek Universe, not just TOS. There are a still TOS mates that could be made for specific episode looks, like the environmental suits or such. But TNG has more crew to produce to join Picard as well as any special adventure costumes that appeared especially when Q was involved. I know that the fans of Star Trek MiniMates (or at least me) would love to see the main crews completed in MiniMates form to compliment their captains which were made already. The fact that with Avengers: Endgame having a box set that come with heads would be beneficial to the completion of the basic crew for each series. TNG Box Set could have Picard, Troi, Data and Worf with a Riker head to use on Picard's body, Dr. Crusher head to use on Troi's body, LaForge head to use on Worf's body and a Barclay or O'Brien head to use on Data' body. A bonus two pack could have Yar and Guinan. VOY Box Set could Chakoty, Tuvok, B'Elana and the EMH, with a Kim head (and hands) to use on Tuvok's body, Seska head to use on B'Elana's body, Paris head to use on Chakotay's body and the EMH's body could have a Seven of Nine head to use to create her character from one of the temporal episodes. I am basing this all on the fact that Janeway's body was basic enough to use for either gender in her release in the Legacy wave. Also, if the Barclay's head is in the TNG set, it could use the B'Elana body if it is the basic type not showing gender. DS9 Box Set would be using the basic body that Janeway had in the Legacy wave for Worf which would be a head made for the TNG set. So continuing on the basic body, Bashir and Jadzia/Ezri Dax would also have interchangeable bodies. Then O'Brien could also be a head reuse from the TNG set if his character was in that set. So this set would be interesting as to just which characters would be in it as you need Kira, Quark and Odo, but Rom and Jake would be nice additions as well. ENT Box set, would need T'Pol, Tucker (with a Reed Head), Hoshi, Archer (with Mayweather head and hands) and Phlox. That would fill out the crew for this series. The crew with environmental suits would be nice but not necessary. DISCO: need the crew from Season one and the new crew from season two as well as the mirror universe.
  7. I would if I had the funds to buy them, but I have my money tied up in trying to buy a house so I can't buy a bunch of older mates and get stuck with them. I mean one of the local Walgreens still has Ultimate Spider-man and Ultimate Electro from wave 1 of the animated line as well as tons of the wave 6 (Black Bolt/Medusa and two other packs) and we have never seen Wave 8 or 9. However, we did see the 1,000,000 BC wave.
  8. Still no Endgame MiniMates in Bloomington/Normal, Illinois that I have seen. There are six Walgreens in the area. Only one has had the Captain Marvel two packs that I have seen. That one store still has not seen the Endgame Mates yet that I am aware of. The other five stores still have a stock-pile of animated waves and Ragnorok, Black Panther and Infinity War Mates. Some of the Animated Wave finds are all the way back to Spider-Man with Electro set. Still have not seen many of the most recent animated waves here either. Nothing new along the animated line for over a year maybe closer to two.
  9. Just this morning found Captain Marvel MiniMates at one of my local Walgreens. I got a complete set, only wish I had a second set to open. Now I hope I find Endgame MIniMates VERY SOON!
  10. I just got my box sets from Luke. I already have them on display and only wish I had the Walgreen's sets to add to them. I had a hard time getting the shoulder parts off of Hulk but finally got them to pop off. I have not seen the movie, but I wanted an Iron Man in the Quantum Suit so I popped the gun off of the War Machine and used an Iron Man mask from the IW Iron Man. I have it displayed off to the side of my other that are official. I could customize Thor and Captain America if I wanted to, along with Captain Marvel all in Quantum Suits but will hold out hope I get the Walgreen's sets.
  11. GREAT, It looks like you can take Hulk apart to make a regular body to go with one of the extra heads, as there are hands and feet packed with the set. Also, War Machine looks like his chest block would not match the regular chest block due to the chest piece only covering the upper half of chest block. I ordered three box sets, because one will never be opened, but I wanted to be able to have enough to make everyone in the Quantum Realm suits and even maybe make Captain Marvel in the suit as well. So then I ordered a fourth set just to play it safe. Can't wait to see the movie and I only hope that any of the six local Walgreens in my area gets Endgame mates as they still have never gotten Captain Marvel mates.
  12. Good Looking MiniMate! I really like the look but I am not a fan of the movie so I did not order one. But you did a great job with this custom minimate, Luke. Just wanted to let you know.
  13. From what images have been shared, there is no mask for Tony Stark in the box set. But it odd that we get Scott Lang without his helmet and then with his helmet in the box set.
  14. I have used parts from Halo and the Ripley Space Suit to make a Michael Burnham in a suit that resembles the one she wore in the first episode of Discovery. I only have seen images as I did not get to watch the first episode nor do I subscribe to CBS All Access. But I am not sure whose head I used but it was a African American Female head I found in my parts container. But I would like to get more Star Trek minimates so I guess I have to scavenge to get parts that may work to customize for the rest of the time I am able to do so.
  15. For example you DST could use the transparent yellow legs and arms from the Astral Dr. Strange and put them on a Kirk torso and with standard Kirk head and hair and you have one similar to the Playmates Transporter Kirk in the pic before this post. If I had more of the transparent promo minimates, I would try to make Transporter Effect Star Trek MiniMates for sure.
