  1. Really liking the new reviews. Glantern, I hadn't seen much of your stuff before but your reviewing style fits right in!
  2. Nice one Nessex, your review looks good on the site!
  3. Well done everyone! And great to see Nessex get in especially, I'm sure we talked about reviewing years ago!
  4. Best of luck to those who enter - I really had a blast doing it for so long, but was lucky in that it was the early years when there wasn't so much product! Later on I was really lucky to get some superb reviewers, who all came from the Multiverse (so I knew they were all great guys too) so hopefully the same can happen for Luke with this contest.
  5. 1. Purple facemask and hood girl is Tali. She's one of the main companion characters in the trilogy. And totally awesome. 2. The orange things on the arms are melee energy weapons. There are different kinds.
  6. I absolutely adore Mass Effect and think these look really good. I am very excited for these. But we will have to see how the Gamestop-exclusive blind-bagged thing works. It was bad enough chasing people in the USA for actual sets, no idea how it will work if I just wanted a Garrus!
  7. Afraid so, I haven't bought any for well over 4 years now. I think the last stuff I bought was Iron Man 2 and Minimates MAX stuff. I do want to support Luke with his exclusive though, because it's so cool that he/his store finally has one. Plus Carnage is one of my favourite Marvel characters, so it's all good!
  8. Hi Tim, still Earthbound! I tend to check MMC more frequently than here and that's where I saw the exclusive news. Seems like everyone had fun in Chicago, it's really nice seeing all the pictures. Glad everyone is doing fine!
  9. Hi guys, I just wanted to say how awesome I think it is that Luke finally got an exclusive set for the store, well done Luke, so well deserved! Also the MMMV blank rocks. It bugs me just a little that I got out of Minimates and then Zach came along onto the forum and has been so great to us!
  10. It astounds me how professional you get these looking, Myte. Great stuff as always!
  11. Here's my Bomber-mate And also a proto I was given a few years ago now - the original White Queen, given to me due to my love for her fabulous cleavage :biggrin: You can see the paint caked on, obscuring the joints, and also the fact that the base colour was a very fetching purple
  12. This is a great thread. Much love to Rob and all the Minimate peeps that are all really good guys. I'll have to get a pic up of the one proto that I have.
  13. Happy belated birthday Rob. Glad you enjoyed it, and didn't cause a fire with so many candles on the cake.
  14. Agree with most of the sentiments here. Walking Dead is a great license for DST to get. Hopefully the cvilian/zombie ratios are 1:1. Slightly sad that Maximum Zombies are on hold, but sometimes you just have to go with the licenced stuff, especially in these troubled economic times.
  15. Sorry to hear that Miry, you and your family are in my thoughts.
  16. That is superb. I like the fact that it's stop-motion. LEGO have been doing this kind of animation thing with their lines for years so it's nice to see DST try it with Calico Jack and the MAX lines.
  17. Is it strange that despite the first zombie girl having no legs and just entrails hanging out, I'm drawn to the cleavage? I think I should se a doctor or something!
  18. I can totally related to how you are feeling now, drgn316. Sometimes you do have to walk away because the drive you had once is not there anymore. It's especially hard when you feel you have a responsibility to a website you have poured a lot of time into. When I initially closed Minimates Central in 2007, I didn't foresee myself getting back into Minimates, but it reopened after a few months with Rad doing the reviews, and I actaully got excited about Minimates again and started buying them and reviewing again. I think a lot of people's interest wax and wane. As said, it's so long running that it's hard to keep motivated sometimes. In some ways I prefered the old days when there were only a couple of lines and I could be a completist but that's just be being nostalgic and somewhat selfish. Good luck in the future and I hope Minimate Headquarters finds some contributers - this community is amazing and I always "recruited" people from MMMV because you can tell a lot about people from how they post on here.
  19. Wow, if I was Chuck I wouldn't be giving that guy any encouragement whatsoever. Cos he seems like the kind of internet fuckwit that really won't take a hint at all.
  20. Thanks to everyone for the kind words about myself, the site, the redesign and the new ownership. I readily admit that Minimates Central has been treading water for a long while as my toy interests blossomed elsewhere, but it has always been clear how much affection people have for it as a simple fan-run site, which makes my decision to hand it over to Luke the correct one. I think he will do an amazing job re-invigorating it for old fans and hopefully with the changes he will be able to bring in many new Minimates fans, which is what we all want. As for myself, it's never really goodbye - 8 years is a very long time to want to cut ties completely. I shall still be lurking and posting when somebody mentions "boobies", but as a line of toys I collect I am now finished with Minimates. The last few months I have been active on a large Lego forum and it has been weird "starting over" and being a complete newbie but I am enjoying it. I have been learning photography techniques and digital image manipulation and have been reviewing Lego sets. Thank you again for all your kind words, it means so much to me that I was able to touch so many people (oo-er!) and certainly Minimates Central has been a huge personal accomplishment for me.
  21. Hi all, On 21st September 2003 a website was created called Marvel Minimates Central, dedicated to a niche line of 2" Lego figures of Marvel characters that had had a film or a new series of comics just that year. That website grew and evolved as the Minimates brand evolved, with a proper domain name (dropping the "Marvel" prefix), a new server, covering more lines, and later adding some more reviewers other than just myself. It has been a massive part of my life for 8 years, either reviewing or latterly just running the website and putting up reviews that others have done. It's still the first hit that comes up when you type the word Minimates into Google And now, today, Minimates Central is 8 years old! And it seemed somehow fitting that on its 8th birthday, I step away now. I know some of you will remember the closure and subsequent 3 month hiatus Minimates Central took in 2007, I can assure you that this will not happen again. This is because our very own Minimates superstar, ace customiser, MMMV staff member, and owner of his very own Toy Store, Luke Porter, will be taking over the ownership and management of He has been working on a redesign of the site with many new features, such as video reviews and social networking options, all in a much easier-to-read format. Bear with him as the rest of the hundreds of previous reviews are added into this new format. I am incredibly lucky to be able to pass on Minimates Central to someone with such talent and enthusiasm for the Minimates brand and I am genuinely excited to see what else Luke has planned. Current reviewer and MMMV staff member Lurch77 will continue to provide top-notch reviews. Thank you to him for all his hard work since becoming a reviewer, and thank you to Rad and Sam for being the other two main reviewers over the last few years. I hope you will join me in wishing Luke and Minimates Central all the best for the future. I am sure this new chapter in the life of the worlds biggest Minimates review resource will be a huge success! Thank you and goodbye
  22. The Last Centurion! I think the character selection on these are pretty good, although I'm not happy that the rares are so rare.
  23. Yeah I loved that pic too! Kudos, Lurch
  24. They do seem to be showing a lot of bravado and confidence in the line. It's definitely a good thing. These minifigs - like the Hasbro Kre-ons - aren't really my thing but I do like to see Character Options doing well.
  25. Nice pics and reviews, Minijeff! It's not like it keeps me up at night but it always amazes me that companies send out free review samples to some sites and not others. I had never heard of that Major Spoilers site before now.
