  1. *blows dust off of login and password* Last night, I had a dream about attending a Minimate Multiverse reunion meetup. The turnout was great with several of the 'old guard' of the board in attendance. It was a literal Who's Who of the original members that made this place great. The only issue was the resort we met at ended up being part of a nudist colony. Everyone decided they were comfortable with that and decided to bare it all (I specifically remember Eric Dlugoklinski being especially eager to disrobe publicly). The group photo was even more traumatizing. I say it was a dream, but nightmare is probably a better term. In fact, I actually booked a series of appointments with a therapist before posting this. Not sure what this says about my psyche, but it can't be anything good. Who knew it would take a dream about a naked buttheadsmate to get me back on the forum boards?
  2. I checked this morning and there were still no Minimates from the Shadow. After all this time, doesn't a movie like this deserve the Minimates treatment? As disappointing as this is, I guess it does mean we're six weeks closer to Spring.
  3. http://pdp.com/en/pixel-pals/ Yeah, not Minimates, but thought I'd share a lesser publicized new figure line, Pixel Pals. They're exclusive to GameStop/Think Geek stores now, but should be available other places as time goes on. I picked up a Mega Man yesterday and they are amazing. Can't really say why, but I have a good feeling this line is going to be awesome.
  4. Yeah, I'm still trying to get rid of what all I have left, but have taken a liking to Dorbz. Sadly, the X-Dorbz looked too good to pass up, but then seeing the Blackbird with Beast kind of sealed it for me.
  5. For Nessex (in case you wanted in box pics or didn't know about the Mystery Mini line): https://www.collectorcorps.com/blog/coming-soon-from-funko-classic-x-men
  6. Thanks hp. I'm actually able to do some custom requests now and am planning an order soon. I'll hit you up with a pm soon with details so be thinking about what you might want.
  7. Thanks so much for the well wishes, even the ones from last year. Even though it's been three years since I (kinda) left here, I'm still reminded of how many friends I've made that go beyond just collecting plastic. Thanks again.
  8. Thanks Zach. I now have my new quest, Challenge accepted.
  9. All I can say is that if there aren't pics of Squirrel Girl from SDCC, I'm leaving the forum.
  10. Hope your birthday is totally nuts (and is also filled with other cringe-worthy puns)!
  11. I gotta agree with you there Nessex. And I'll consider Squadron Supreme. I admit I'm not completely familiar with their roster so I have to ask, are there any rodent-themed members?
  12. Very good question. Since I don't really care, I suppose I can rent out my services to the highest bidder. You want your favorite character Minimatized? I'll be your own personal Lee Burns (if you can afford me).
  13. Yes, well done Lobsterman. And to quote Rod Stewart, have I told you lately what a tremendous job you do painting things? Had they hired you sooner I never would have stopped collecting. And that SG cosplay is nice, although when I cosplay as Squirrel Girl it's much more impressive (in my humble opinion).
  14. Nope, design work is being done by Barry Bradfield, Master Designer. I just paint things. Thanks, I guess that's what I meant. Just making sure I know who to be really nice to in case there are any samples floating around.And to quote Rod Stewart, have I told you lately what a tremendous job you do painting things? Had they hired you sooner I never would have stopped collecting.
  15. So boyd, are you helping with any of the design of SG?
  16. It didn't take long for this thread to go downhill fast. Glad to see things haven't changed much around here. If anyone is actually looking for a good read with Squirrel Girl, the Great Lakes Avenenengengers miniseries is awesome overall. It's difficult to find well written comedy in the MU, but they pull it off fantastically.
  17. You seriously trying to kill the mood with a reminder we still don't have Golden Girls Minimates?
  18. I'm feeling kind of woozy and think I might pass out.
  19. MASK would be done perfectly as Minimates. It's not like anyone is doing anything with that license anyway. edit: Actually, I take that back because I don't care. I don't even come around this place any more anyways so I'm not even sure why I'm posting.
  20. The comments I've seen here match those I've seen elsewhere. Either totally okay with it or completely opposed to it. I didn't realize SG was so polarizing.

  22. I know, some see the glass half full while I see it as half empty. Some see this board as 99+% full of mutual respect and tolerance, some see that .something% that is unnecessary behavior that seems unprofessional, disrespectful and verging on bullying. I'm all for giving someone a hard time (obviously), especially when they set themselves up for it, but when it becomes clear that someone is taking it personally it seems the respectful thing to do is to back off. Even if the person keeps coming back despite the abuse. Well, at least that's what I think a pessimist that never comes around here often might see.
