  1. I got the same notice, but I also had multiple items on that order that weren’t preorders. My assumption is that Luke got the official notice that John Wick is cancelled and now he’s shipping out my order since it’s no longer being held up by the (now) cancelled set. I haven’t gotten a notice of a refund but I suspect it’s just a bit delayed ** edit - I just got the refund and an email explaining that the set is cancelled
  2. When I made the topic, I put it in Custom Creations & Artwork. But then a second thread was started and the two were merged, and I didn’t notice that it’s now in a different section. Thanks for pointing that out! I’ll see about getting it moved
  3. I did Inktober last fall and it kicked my butt trying to keep up with daily posts. A full month can be a bit much, so yeah I definitely recommend taking breaks periodically 😅
  4. Just so you all know, you’re free to deviate from the prompt list if you’d like. I realize that it seems like an official rule to follow, but really the prompt list was just designed to help spark inspiration if you need it. If there’s a prompt you don’t want to participate in, feel free to post something that isn’t related! The only time you would need to follow the prompts is for the contests (not including this first week, which is a basic giveaway). The contests will be judged based on the week’s theme (so week 2 is Heroes & Villains. You would only need to post one image on theme for that week to be eligible for the contest). Following the prompts can be fun, but it isn’t a regulation 😁
  5. That is FANTASTIC. So glad the sets did well for you! Hopefully that bodes well for potential future sets like that
  6. Right? It has been very cool to watch!
  7. March of Minimates is live! it will be running from today until March 31st, with weekly contest and prizes. We’d love to see you there!
  8. I would actually be cool with that. I liked how they varied the heights in that line, but it makes it odd when I consider my LotR ‘mates with most other properties. The thing that I would be worried about is DST’s latest trend of releasing a box set or two, then stopping because the sales aren’t there. So we end up with a few characters we want and a large number conspicuously MIA
  9. I can’t tell you how much I would flip for an updated take on the LotR mates. I absolutely love the ones we got, but the tampos feel a bit dated. And of course there’s the issue of scale. I don't want to get my hopes up, though...
  10. I actually did a little dance. these mates can’t get here soon enough
  11. Thanks! I really hope this will be a fun event for everyone, regardless of artistic skill. I’m looking forward to what people will come up with and I know Zach is aware of it, but I’m not sure how involved DST will want to be. When I conceived the challenge, I didn’t think it would be a big enough thing for that level of attention 😅
  12. Photography isn’t the only way you can participate - it encompasses a broad range of art; including customs, decals, dios, displays/collections, etc... Photography is the most popular way to make Minimate images, but the origin of this challenge was actually me wanting to draw one Minimate drawing each day for a month. I originally wanted to pitch the challenge as something for traditional artists to participate in (very much along the lines of Inktober) but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that drawing/painting was too limited in scope. So I opened it up to include any form of art that celebrates Minimates!
  13. Actually, it was my brain child. Luke was awesome enough to sponsor some of the prizes and help me promote it I posted a thread about it here 😊 I'm stoked to see people excited about it!
  14. I first heard about March of Robots back in 2018 and thought to myself, "that would be fun to do, but with Minimates". Fast forward to Inktober 2019 and I finally found the motivation to make it happen. So here's the premise: March of Minimates is an Instagram based art challenge, with the goal of creating one Minimate image each day throughout the month of March. For me, it's drawing. That's where it all started... I wanted to take the month of March and dedicate it to creating 31 Minimate drawings. But why stop there? Minimates are fun to photograph, too. There are a ton of Instagram accounts with incredible photos and digital edits. Plus there are tons of talented customizers and decal designers and diorama builders... why not open March of Minimates to every creative person who loves the brand? So that's what I'm doing. March of Minimates is launching March 1st on Instagram Upload your images to Instagram, tag them with #MarchofMinimates, and follow the IG page for updates and contests @MarchofMinimates Weekly contests with prizes from Luke's Toy Store You can find all the info on how it works at
