  1. So say we all. That particular pack is, I believe,an homage to the original Kenner pack. Medicom did the same with kubricks,several years ago ...they however produced a big 400% f8cker as well as the normal sized version,both had almost identically styled packaging. I mention this because it is fascinating to have watched, over the years ,some ebay sellers contriving to photograph their 'normal-sized' packaged item in such a manner that the uninitiated might think they are buying the big 'un. Just saying.
  2. I think I've posted at length about what Kirk variants I'd be interested in so I'm happy to say it all over again date we have had 14 Kirks ,13 of which have black pants/feet/boots/crotchpiece . Star Trek isn't my favourite line but I do appreciate that it is a line with legs albeit black legs. The above is lighthearted hereon I am being pragmatic as usual. Isn't it about time that DST released a set of generic pieces , a customising package, that fans old & new could utilise ? Regards the 'shirtless' ....... I can think of several bare-chest Minimate character
  3. Thank you guys ....I'm smiling from ear to ear & y'know I'm laughing at myself. I continue to replay that youtube link continually ..... what an inspiration.
  4. For those of you in the US who are looking for Series 4 ,the TRU wave that never got sold at TRU, they are fairly plentiful on UK ebay .....& cheap.
  5. The last year has been pretty weird ,the lack of Minimates not helping , I have however been pretty successful at hunting down some kubricks that were missing from my collection . The damnedest thing about kubrick collecting is that you're never sure what is actually available or been available . There are also some kubricks that, by rights, you are unlikely ever to own purely because they were issued as part of a package or promotion . Ol' butt had just about given up on ever seeing them but collecting is all about patience & just recently I have scored 2 out of the 6 or so 'impossibles
  6. Over the years I have read that many people collect 'Minimates' because they can be displayed 'easily' . Your looking for your 4th shelf & I said..... I am in absolute awe of your collection ...I look forward to seeing your 5th & 6th Me? I'm building my 2nd warehouse for my sad collection of unopened Minimate cases.
  7. I still buy the occasional old Minimate from ebay if it's cheap enough it interests me, 'dump' chases always come into that category . This week I received 6 Alien dump cases which included the 3 human figures which I always go for . They were described as 'new' & the 3 human figures were as described BUT ol'butt nearly threw his toys out of the pram when he noticed that the Alien figures were almost bursting out of their little cases! On inspection I noted that they were still taped,obviously unopened, so WTF had gone on ? You know...but I didn't ....that back in 2014 somebo
  8. I recall 3 TRU Michonne releases & I am discounting the 'Riot' of those packs is the most prolific 2-pack that I have in my entire inventory collection but I am damned if I can remember which one it is ? If any body is wondering why (?) well .....that's because of's infamous salesmanship often seemed that whatever I ordered they just sent me what they wanted. In this particular instance somebody was just having a f*cking laugh at my expense . I laugh about it now. That aside ..... that custom is bloody stunning especially as all this talk about Mich
  9. I'd no idea who Mr.Geppi was until that wonderful Minimate promo arrived on the scene but I took the opportunity (then) to read 'his' wiki page . I am long enough in the tooth to not absorb & believe everything I read on a wiki page but it is worth reading . Penguin ,the new distributor, is also an interesting company to read up on but I'm guessing that by the time you've got your head around Geppi then you'll be less interested in Penguin. My personal conclusion is that on the face of it nothing much will change with the actual distribution of the merchandise. BTW you mig
  10. Unusually ...I have been lost for words (about your collection) ....let's try 'stunning'. Wonderful.
  11. I see that there is GI Joe Retro range , are the vehicles, Minimate compatible ?
  12. I really appreciate your swift post Zach & I also apologise unreservedly for shooting from the hip .
  13. In my mind one of the best if not the best vinimate so far. In other news from BBTS , Iron Giant (attack mode) vinimates were just added to my pile of loot
  14. Always look on the bright side .......the Marvel Avengers Endgame box set was re-run . However .......can you believe how DST continually pisses on its own fireworks ? Instead of encouraging fans old & new to look forward to a new Minimate licence, they perpetuate this lunacy of making their previously poorly-selling toy-line hard to get hold of! Just sell the damn things to whomever want them.....that is good business . If this BBTS newsbite is irrelevant & misleading then forf%cksake ,Zach, diss it immediately because it f£cking doesn't enthuse peopl
  15. I'm betting that these won't be limited in Schaumberg .
