  1. Now I just need to get my head out of Power Rangers Zord butts so I can get back to Minimates!
  2. Well...his foot was in a tub of minimate part. I feel silly, to say the least. I suppose there is hope in the world after all.
  3. Sadly yes. The results were not favorable. Thank you though, is the thought that counts in the wretched world of lost minimate parts.
  4. Vision looks wonderful. Can someone please clear up this "predator" thing I'm reading? I can't seem to find anything official? Is it happening?
  5. So...does anyone want to sell me a foot? Better yet, can anyone help me do a paint match? BHM...YB...Dinobot...god damn it even me OH minimate gods. Zach? *muffled cries*
  6. Thanks anilsoi! I've honestly never done that much sculpting and gluing and painting before for a toy or otherwise. Surprised it turned out okay.
  7. I haven't found a similarly painted foot, and its driving me up the f-ing wall. If it was a few months prior I would have been able to just purchase a new set of T-cats entirely but right now my minimate budget is severely restricted, essentially non-existent. LION-OOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
  8. To make things worse, Sherbetice was nice enough to send me a foot all the way from Singapore...for free...and *drum roll please*... I get the envelope with a tiny hole in it. Apparently the foot scratched through the plastic bag it was in and the envelope...I proceeded to kicked my mail box, which is the apartment buildings mailbox...which caused some issues. I am a sad man.
  9. I did not know this but a lot of Minimates are about to get coated! Thank you! And still no foot.
  10. I'll keep this short, as clearly, in the past I have been one of the least articulate posters here. All actions below were performed by me,as far as I can remember in said order. -Stores Thundercats Minimates in Minimates carrying case. - Occasionally play with them with my son, who is very nice to them. - Lion-O's foot almost always falls out. - Opens up Thundercats mates after a week of not playing with them...finds Lion-O's foot missing. - Proceeds to turn entire house upside down looking for Minimate foot. - At this point not sure if it has been painted over, or lost or eaten by Minimate demons. Does this happen to anyone? Is there any easy way to procure a Lion-O foot? A cheap mate with the same colored feet? Anyone want to send me one? I will give you four assorted feet for 1 Lion-O I freaking out for lack of a better phrase? YES! I am not a fan of being a completionist, unsure whether it is some unfulfilled childhood need or OCD or something sillier. But when it hits, it hits me hard. Next fiasco I assume will be procuring Pathfinder promos in a timely fashion. /end rant
  11. These visits have occurred since the 1st of June. And nothing...there weren't even any on clearance. I'm happy to give Luke's all my business, but I hope one day soon TRU has minimates available. Regardless, silly post I suppose. I feel better now that I've seen the SDCC pics.
  12. I've had my fair share of minimate drama. From attempting to collect all DC's as my first line without knowing they were not being made anymore, from seeing a gold spidey at a comic book store and not purchasing it, to my recent multiverse blank debacle. I hope I have not offended anyone as much as Toys R Us has me lately. I recently moved to Arizona from Chicago and due to the lighter traffic and general abundance of TRU stores I thought, why not go buy some new minimates? I've tried 5 locations. I've seen three tomb raider 2-packs and one ASM2 pack. The stores are supposed to have least I think so. Quotes from employees and managers :- "we have some lego guys, those are minimates " "playmobil minimates, we have tons" "i play warhammer, you may be able to find them at a gaming store" "heroclix are more fun man" "those might be too small for your son, have you tried duplo?" One for each store. I don't often get enraged over toys...that changed today. /endrant
  13. Thanks delta. Anyone have any ideas for a robocop helmet? I've tried sculpting one from scratch and it's not coming out remotely close. It looks too chunky given the new movies streamlined look. I definitely want a base to sculpt on top off but can't find one. Help please. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I'm looking forward to different color palettes and then trying to make a translucent-looking Gruntos.
  15. Well if you go by Vorin releases for Battle Beasts its quite possible that there will be TMNT promos at next year's c2e2.
  16. Well for the two people following. Here you are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Not sealed yet. Planning some packaging too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Thanks, I'm going to try doing three sets of Gruntos,Vorin and Merk. Ice/Water, Fire and Earth ( so greens and browns perhaps...)
