  1. Series 2! We have our preorders up here - they will be solicited from Diamond on Friday, so if you preorder these through your LCS, they won't be able to see the set in their system until then.
  2. Looks like it has arrived in Diamond's warehouses as well - we're looking at 2-3 weeks.
  3. Thanks! Here is the preorder link: https://forms.gle/4owpZwxMK3deATwT9
  4. I know he had smaller horns in his original appearance, but I could only get larger horns for him, which match his more modern appearance:
  5. Before turning to evil, Ogun was Wolverine's mentor in Japan. Ogun learned the mystic arts and the ability to possess others. He used this ability on a Weapon X test subject and renamed himself Shogun. This custom set includes Ogun with his gold-handled katana, and a head and katana for you to make your own Shogun figure. The rest of Shogun's costume is basically a black body - in the photo I am using Black Panther's body, but there are many Minimate black bodies to choose from. The preorder link has been sent to previous subscribers / superfans. He will go up for public preorder tomorrow and I will post the link here.
  6. 😂 Yes I left Hulk's bum un-drilled.
  7. I'm always on the lookout for new stuff for the next Minimate Showcase Day. Sometimes I find awesome stuff that doesn't really work out for one reason or another. This set is the Mobile Suit Gundam: Options Parts Set, which comes with some really cool Minimate-scale pieces, however the retail price is $40, and the retailer discount is extremely small, so we would have had to mark these at $45, and I just thought that price was too high for what you get. Plus to really make these work well with Minimates, it takes a tiny bit of drilling. The missile and blast pieces have a 1/16" metal rod inside that extend out in various lengths depending on the piece. I am assuming this is a standard connection size for Gundam stuff. I used a 1/16" drill bit to drill a hole in the center of my War Machine's shoulder cannon. The single missile piece and yellow blast piece fit perfectly, although they make him so front-heavy that I had to give him a stand. The double-missile launch accessory has 2 metal rods in close proximity, so I didn't mess with that one. The quality on everything is really good - I just wish the price point was a bit lower.
  8. No one has guessed it yet. Although he was a mentor to one of the X-Men, it wasn't it any comic with X in the title. He cheats death by possessing people.
  9. Chamber is nearly finished - I have been sorting out some sticker printing issues. I expect him to ship in 2 weeks. In the meantime, here is a hint for my next Marvel custom: This character started out as a father figure to one of the X-Men, before turning to evil. The custom will come with extra parts to help you create another villain that this character once possessed, and who shares a similar name and look to this character.
  10. So far on the retailer side of things I am only seeing the Transformers one, but I'm sure the rest are coming soon. Details: Roll out! The Transformers return for this exclusive four-pack featuring the Autobots and Decepticons in their cartoon colors! Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream and Megatron look like they just leaped off the TV screen... and into special edition VHS case packaging! These 2-inch Minimates feature multiple points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts and accessories, and they slide out of an illustrated VHS sleeve! I'm guessing this means not metallic paint like the original releases. I am actually looking forward to more cartoon accurate colors. Preorder link
  11. I found a supplier with tanks that are in-scale with Transformers Minimates AND in the same deformed style as other Minimate vehicles AND are in the colors of the two Decepticon tanks Brawl and Blitzwing. They will be available separately this Saturday at Minimate Showcase Day. 🙂
  12. Public preorder is live: https://forms.gle/ynNrkR2mPNBaEhn76
