Changes with my hosting service and real life have reduced my updating frequency to near zero. Sorry about that. Minis and Vinis have still been coming in, they've just been piling up, misguided and unloved. I worry about them sometimes. Are they eating right? What do they dream about? Do the Vinis resent the Minis for their additional articulation? Do they view their greater size as an asset or a disability? Are the Vinis conspiring with the Pops to overthrow the Mini regime? If so, how how do they plan to overcome the 35:1 to population disparity? Probably guerrilla tactics... Wear down the superior forces with ambushes and sabotage. Hide in the shadows. Quick strikes. Hmm, stealth and speed don't seem to be strong points for them. I wonder if they would attack civilian Minimates... or just keep to the military, super-hero, and zombie factions. Muppets and Spongebob are probably the most vulnerable, but everyone else seems to have some defensive and/or offensive capabilities.
Would Vinis attack Minis from the same line? That's a sticky ethical issue. Is Vinimate NBX Sally really all that different from Minimate Sally? Would Vini Marty McFly be willing to cut the breaks on a Delorean knowing Mini Doc Brown would be the one driving it next? The leaders of the Vini Insurrection would have to be sure to manage these relationships. They'd want to make sure that they use it to their advantage too. I'm sure Vini Ripley would be quite good at taking out a bunch of Mini Xenos. I wonder who the leaders of the Vini Insurrection would be? The robots maybe? Iron Giant, B9 and Robbie working together for the benefit of all Vinimate kind. It's odd how they don't attack the Mini Terminator encampment. Cylons haven't suffered any losses either. I wonder if there's anything to the rumors? Some conspiracy nuts say the artificial life on both sides are conspiring together to take out as much of the Mini and Vini population so that can rule together. But that's just crazy talk.
So in the spirit of peace and solidarity I gathered up everyone in my backlog for a group photo.
I hope to get them integrated into the general population soon. Hopefully I can include the recent TRU stuff too. But NBX 4, Marvel 24, and Ragnarok haven't shown up with the nearest 3000 sq. miles. Hope those new bastards don't start any trouble.
