  1. CaptainPaco's Customs (Star Trek and more)

    Okay, got images of a few of my other recent customs. https://photos.app.goo.gl/zKSr4zjcUkcUfJup1 Yesterday's Enterprise Picard Easy custom: painted on the cuffs at the wrists and painted a holster white and added a gold arrowhead (similar to what was in the episode). https://photos.app.goo.gl/85Om3cDHKB9Q7Twx1 Living Witness Janeway, aka Warship Janeway Easy custom: I really just replaced her hands with black hands for her black gloves and swapped her hairpiece with a hairpiece from a Mass Effect Jane Shepherd. I was originally going to make a Mirror Universe Janeway and that is why she has the belt/sash around her waist. I like it and forgot it was on there. I left her wrist beacon on as well. I know in the episode of Living Witness, none of the crew have their commbadges on but I can't bring myself to paint over it just yet. https://photos.app.goo.gl/6dcggRBJekcqNonq1 This image is of the Orion Slavers I made after getting the character in my Star Trek Timelines game. I added a couple of Orion Slave Girls in the picture for a bonus.
  2. CaptainPaco's Customs (Star Trek and more)

    Here are the pictures of my Custom Mirror Broken MiniMates from the limited series comic Star Trek the Next Generation Mirror Broken. These are all a work in progress, but I wanted to share them anyway. https://photos.app.goo.gl/jZTdh4yzEAqg1UF93 This picture is Captain Picard, Commander Riker and Chief Engineer La Forge from Mirror Broken; and you can see Inquisitor Troi on the edge. https://photos.app.goo.gl/QqBsRS1CwxQtJ4vw2 This picture is Inquisitor Troi, Commander Data and Doctor Crusher. https://photos.app.goo.gl/rzDBSbWn8vnY0TWx1 This picture is Mirror Sisko as best as I can assemble at this time and a Mirror Janeway as seen in Star Trek Timelines as best as I can assemble. These are works in progress. I am awaiting a Borg MiniMate I ordered from eBay to use for the Borg implant that will go on Data's face to complete that look and may use some of the other parts on is arm. I still have to finish Troi's details on her skirt and the wrists. I still need to work on their chest emblems but that may be awhile, unless I can get a friend who is great with decal to make some for me (in all three divisions and in both genders). Mirror Sisko was just a quick custom as I am sure I will find a better chest block for him. I am also looking to get a green captain's tunic from Trials and Tribble-ations Kirk to make a Mirror Archer. I have also made "Yesterday's Enterprise" Picard and Warship Janeway from "Living Witness" but have not removed the commbadge from her yet.

  4. WWF Custom Minimate Poll

    I would like to get a Rowdy Roddy Piper. He was my favorite from when I was a kid. I would like to see Macho Man Randy Savage as well.
  5. TRU 25

    Have not seen these at the TRU in Bloomington, IL as of today. Just for the first time today, I found Series 24 at TRU in Bloomington, IL. I got two full sets and they were on clearance for $5.99 each. I got an extra Thor/Collector and an extra Gwenpool/Black Cat. I have found the Black Panther TRU wave in full at the TRU in Bloomington, IL last week. I would really like a Jack O'Lantern minimate.
  6. CaptainPaco's Customs (Star Trek and more)

    I know it has been a long time since I shared anything on my progress of customs. I am currently working on Star Trek the Next Generation Mirror Broken minimates. While still works in progress, I am pleased with what I have thus far. I know my chest blocks are incorrect but I am not talented with making decals. I may have to reach out and ask for some assistance in that part of my customs. But I have gotten inspiration form the comics and from Star Trek Timelines. I have a Mirror Janeway, and a Mirror Sisko as well. For the Mirror Broken set, I have in progress Mirror Picard, Mirror Riker, Mirror Data, Mirror La Forge, Mirror Dr. Crusher and Mirror Troi. I also read on Memory Alpha, a Star Trek fan site, that the Mirror Universe Borg have a King and not a Queen. So I decided to use my imagination and have made a Borg King and his Queen. I have also tried my hand at making an Orion Slaver (male Orion). I will try to take pictures later this week and share them with all of you.
  7. Just found the Beetlejuice sets at my local TRU (Bloomington, IL). I got two of each pack. I didn't think I would see them at my local TRU because they seem to be over populated with older Marvel and Alien & Predator Sets. I am glad I got them so now I will not have to order the box set as I have all the mates for the line. Happy hunting!
  8. tru wave 24

    No luck in Central Illinois (Blo/No area). The Local TRU had all the minimates moved to the collectible aisle for a while now but they just revamped the aisle. Pirates Minimates are not in this aisle and are found in the aisle with the very small amount of Pirate merchandise left at the store. All other minimates have been moved to the collectible aisle. They have Doctor Strange and the Secret Wars sets on clearance. Aliens, NBX, Ragnorok, Dark Tower and Spider-man Homecoming are all marked $7.49 each. Jessica Jones Box set is now $9.99 and Civil War & Guardians are $5.99 each (Pirates are also $5.99 each). There is a set of Plants vs. Zombies but I don't recall the price, I think it was still $14.99. They had Ragnorok on two pegs, Aliens were on three. I will revisit the store next Thursday to see if they get Wave 24.
  9. NYCC give away

    What keeps me collecting MiniMates? Well, I keep collecting MiniMates because I enjoy the concept of MiniMates. I enjoy customizing and the fact they are so unlike Lego Minifigures. The favorite thing about minimates is they are a great way for me to wind down after a stressful day, merely due to the ease there is to customizing so many of them. Sure there are times where you need to paint a part or apply a decal, but they are simple enough to make general/quick customs almost any where. The nice thing about MiniMates, is that my godson loves to play with them and has a blast mixing up the Battle Beasts and TMNT to use as aliens for the Star Trek crew to fight/explore with. (I have lots of extras that I allow him to play with so my customs are not disturbed or damaged.) I would have to say my "Norman Osborne in a lab coat" MiniMate is a tie between the custom Mirror Mirror Star Trek MiniMates I made with some help from Luke314pi (he made decals for me.) I created Mirror Chekov, Mirror Sulu, Mirror McCoy and normal universe Monroe after I got the Mirror Mirror Box Set as I needed the rest of the landing party that swapped places in the Mirror Universe. https://photos.app.goo.gl/3b2ESiQM7yOKOgY53 https://photos.app.goo.gl/a5f5VfcBdUU4bggE2
  10. Prowl-Ar's Customs: Rocket WIP

    Prowlar: As always I am impressed by your six recent submissions. Love Sorrow and Scarlet Spider-Witch. I look forward to your custom creations. Thank you for sharing as always.
  11. Where in the World is Carimate Mindiego?

    You are correct, I think I made it easy to figure out, but I could not set the shot up so had to do what I could with existing images I had. You're up next, Donny B!
  12. Where in the World is Carimate Mindiego?

    Sorry for the delay, I had to photoshop this as I have not had time to actually go and set up a scene.
  13. I would like to see MiniMates for the new Star Trek Discovery show. I am not sure if any merchandise is even available for the new series, but I think this would be a great time to get MiniMates for a Star Trek Series.
  14. Pirates of the Caribbean

    My local TRU had them with the other PotC merchandise and I walked past them several times when I went looking for them as they had every other MiniMate back in the "Collectors" section behind all the Nintendo games and such. I think I checked my store out four times before I found them and that was only because I went to get a Fast8 car for my nephew and saw the PotC MiniMates in that section. I would have purchased more sets but was going to get two sets from Luke's to get the decals. However, I would have liked to see a pistol or some other accessories included.
  15. Where in the World is Carimate Mindiego?

    Is it Duke University Chapel at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina?
