  1. Starting this month, I will be doing a small run of custom Minimates each month and selling them. The character selection is up to me, since it is based on availability of parts and how much time I have available. Plus I want to make characters that I am passionate about. I have 6 customs planned, and 5 of them are Marvel characters. I will make one custom first and put up preorders, and then I will finish the run and ship the orders. This is completely separate from the toy store - this is more of a personal project. I will update this thread when a new custom is up for preorder, and I will also post on the MMV Facebook page and my Instagram page. And with all of that said, the first custom is ready and up for preorder! Molten Man (Modern) The Spider-Man villain Molten Man is based on his modern appearances, and he includes a fire base and a mini-backdrop. I only have enough parts to make 18 of him. He is $20 and you can preorder him here: https://goo.gl/forms/NjhtwAnBXpoEjVIv2

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Surprise release! I always wanted a different face for the Infinity War Thanos, so I made one, along with extras for you guys. You can order the face sticker by itself, or order it already applied to a Thanos Minimate: https://goo.gl/forms/0WrtTpcIu3ax3Qkx2

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    The villains are The Elementals, and there are 4 of them (air, rock, fire, water). I am hoping that DST keeps the box set completely different like they did with Captain Marvel. So I am going to guess: Walgreens: Spider-Man / Air Elemental, Mysterio / Water Elemental, Nick Fury / Fire Elemental, Peter Parker / Rock Elemental Box set: Black Suit Spider-Man, Alternate version of Mysterio, Ned, Maria Hill (not in the trailer but confirmed for the movie)
  4. I am considering making small runs of classic WWF wrestlers as Minimates (I know it's WWE now, but it will always be WWF to me), similar to how I do custom Marvel Minimates each month right now. And it would be a similar format, where I release one character per month, with a limited run of 20-30 customs total, and it would be $15-$20 each. The character choice would be up to me, and would include popular wrestlers from approximately 1985 to 1995. The first release would be Bret "Hitman" Hart, who was my favorite wrestler as a kid. But before I begin this line, I need to know if there is enough interest. Please comment and let me know if you would be interested in buying customs from this line. Thank you! EDIT: I got enough support and this line has launched! Scroll down for details.

    January's custom will be the Spider-Man villain Iguana! He will go up for preorder on Sunday, January 6th. He will come with the Enervator machine that created him. Mahkzimo the Nuclear Man is coming along very well, and should be shipping out around the same time.

    WWF Custom Minimate Preorder Thread

    Here is a hint for my next custom: This wrestler was billed as the WWF World Heavyweight Champion in 3 shows despite the fact that he never won the title in a match - it was handed to him by Andre the Giant. However, WWF later refused to acknowledge this wrestler as the champion (since titles could not be handed to someone else) and declared the title vacant.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Here is a hint for January's custom: This Spidey villain was originally only in the late 70’s, but appeared again in 2015. Thanks for the suggestion! I also really like the Multiple Man backdrop idea.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    I actually did consider him, but I have been trying to make new characters that have not been released in a different costume. Also I feel like this is a character that people would want 3 or 4 of, which I wouldn't be able to offer. What do you guys think - would you want him and would a one per person limit be ok?

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    I haven't taken suggestions yet because I am extremely limited by which parts I have available to make a run of 30-40 customs, even with the toy store. You guys can definitely offer ideas, and I will take them all into consideration, but unfortunately I won't be able to make 95% of them. With that said, feel free to go crazy with the suggestions.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Haha I am honored to be freudian slipped with Zach. Yes I am definitely planning on doing this again next year. This current batch will finish in February. The releases in March, April, and May are a little different, and won't be part of a new subscription (optional as always). And then I will resume my usual releases in June. I have the full year of customs planned out from June 2019 to May 2020, with understudies in case something comes up, such as DST releasing one of the characters.

    Thank you! That is also part of the reason why I am backing off a little bit this month.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Hey guys, I wanted to let you know that I will be pushing the December release to January. This month was insane for me, and I fell behind on my customizing. I need this month to get caught up. For those of you with subscriptions to my Marvel customs, it will push it all back one month, with the final release in this subscription happening in February instead of January. I expect Namorita to ship in one week, and the Nuclear Man to ship in 3-4 weeks. Thanks guys!

    Hey guys, I wanted to let you know that I will be pushing the November release (Rick "The Model" Martel) to December. This month was insane for me, and I fell behind on my customizing. For those of you with subscriptions to my wrestling customs, it will push it all back one month, with the final release in this subscription happening in May instead of April. I expect Jake the Snake to be finished in 2 weeks. Thanks guys!

    WWF Custom Minimate Preorder Thread

    Here is a hint for my next classic WWF custom: The championships held by this Quebec wrestler over the course of his career include the AWA World Heavyweight Championship, WCW World Television Championship, and WWF World Tag Team Championship. After he retired, he was the host of the French language programming for WCW.
