  1. Whatever I wish for ! I love the look of these apart from the same ol' thing . Why oh why can't we get a Thing with a one-piece moulded head ? Get your paint brushes out , hunt out your parts bin for Thing parts & sharpen your sharpies. Same ol' problem I'm guessing.
  2. I'm not so sure about that but I'm pretty sure that your 'mates wont be going 'into' it .
  3. I have no idea of its scale & maybe a bit pricey but .......
  4. Ikea is similar . Seriously though .....each year I vacation to the same place in Crete ,it's maybe the only weeks of the year I forget about ... until I pass the toy shop in the nearby town with its real-life child -size Playmobil figure outside If it were a Minimate I'd have had it away years ago & my annual pilgrimage holiday isn't complete until I've seen him it. 'Athens Times' Latest: English kidnapper arrested at airport that he is insane.....everybody agrees
  5. Regards Terminator I've always cherished the T-1000s which are perhaps the most-off-the-wall minimates of them all . More from the property ? Clearly they seem to be an eBay rarity , 11 years after their release but I'm personally sceptical that anything other than a 4 -pack would sell ? However much I enjoyed the T2 'mates I was eventually completely endoskeleton-out , a Minimate that never really worked (for me) re-released again & again ,finally being chosen again as the character packed with the Hunter/Killer tank
  6. if you're going to buy one vinimate buy Robbie the robot .
  7. .....or I could pay BigBadToyStore $499.99 TBQH I could probably cajole a US friend to get me one but as I am preparing to move house again & I just can't justify the purchase as I downsize . I'll regret it I know.
  8. Somewhere in my stash I have a big Sentinel head that I bought from an US ebay seller ...bigger than the Legends item of which I have several ......somewhere That doesn't help you . Check out what is on offer on US ebay when you tap in 'sentinel head ' , there seems to be a couple of options that might help. I'd love one of those haslab items but maybe its good that its US buyers only
  9. I was going to suggest you try & pick up a Marvel Legends Sentinel 'head' accessory but I checked out eBay I can see that that avenue has closed . The 'secret' is out
  10. Medicom produced 5 Kubrick/bearbrick Kaws sets & TBQH I have always had zero interest in them .Zilch interest. What made them a little bit interesting was that they were packed with a Minimate size bus-stop accessory . There were 5 sets ,all much the same each with variant figures .....yawn. Those 5 sets entered my collection ,unloved . Four or five years back I began seeing huge cases of these packs on UK eBay from UK sellers , being relisted again & again by the sellers & getting cheaper & cheaper . The shipping eventually became more than the item. There have been several points over the last twenty years that I have questioned my decision to invest* in little plastic toys, the realisation that people couldn't even (almost) give them away had become a reality . 'Reality' should have told me that I should not buy cases of unwanted, unsaleable toys ........ I bought cases of them, telling myself that I could at least utilise the 'bus stops' one day, er...maybe. Anyway , it now seems that Kaws toys have become hot & ,if eBay prices are to be believed, I might not be as stupid as I thought I was * investing in toys is not something I would advocate .
  11. I've been tempted by this...........
  13. I bought all of those (above) & I have zero interest in them & I know what that says about me There is some consolation for me in the fact that many of the 'shelved' licenses are actually some of the rarest minimates (according to what I see on eBay).
  14. I am incapable of holding a conversation regarding View Askew Minimates , that is not a criticism just a fact . Bill & Ted ? I like your thinking. I watched The Ballad of Buster Scruggs last night & I loved it . Howzabout a whole range of Filmmakers box sets.... with the Coen brothers leading the charge? Next up could be a Stanley Kubrick (how ironic that would be) range . Spartacus,2001,Full Metal Jacket ......"here's Johnny" & Alex
  15. I don't recall any conversation here about variant Kraven versions . I can definitely confirm however that there were a few TRU Minimates that were subtly different from their contemporary LCS/BAM versions . I'm struggling to remember the 'mates & what the differences were except for the obvious Abomination & War Machine Mk1. If Kraven does have a variant ...well spotted.
  16. 99% of the time over the last 13 or so years ..........I've just been kidding around . Attempts at humour ? You are doing better than me. Regards War Machine Punisher ? I'm pretty sure I am on record that that would be the most sellable Minimate since Hulkbuster .
  17. Lockdown finally gave me the opportunity to binge-watch Game of Thrones .......I'd never seen an episode & I'd kept myself spoiler free. One season to go & ol' Tyrion is like a family friend to me now .
  18. Thanks for replying. I have 2 eBay IDs & buying from has never been an issue . Your link works a treat on my MacBook & I'll try my PCs shortly . Again,my thanks for responding, my main reason for posting was the fear that I might be missing out on other 'stuff '........lovely pictures BTW.
  19. Of course all cops are not bad , the vast majority do a very hard job very well . Bad apples .
  20. I know a guy who 6 years ago ( at the age of 59) was arrested by the police for the first time in his life for "acting in an aggressive manner" in a public place to another member of the public. He languished in a cell for 10 hours before being interrogated ,charged & then released on bail for 28 days . On the 27th day he received a call from a high ranking police officer saying that "in the circumstances" he would be offered a 'caution' as long as my guy admitted the offence. The guy queried what this 'caution' entailed & whether it would be the beginning of a police record ? The police officer declared that it would not . " Come in tomorrow ,agree to the caution & all this will go away !" The guy did some quick research .............the police officer had lied, a caution is registered ,it's a police record. The guy hired an attorney ,took his advice & then presented himself at the police station on the 28th day. Much to the disgust of the policemen at the station, the guy elected to go to court . "Why don't you do the right thing & take the caution" he was asked "Because I didn't do anything wrong " my guy replied. He went to court ,he apologised to the judge for breaching the peace (olde English law) . The judge chided (olde English word) him & sent him away on the condition that he would be in deep shit (not his words) if he was seen in (his) court again. The guy thanked the judge & left the court with no criminal record but his tail between his legs. Epilogue: I've known this guy all my life & he can be an awkward fucker but on the day of the supposed "incident" where he "acted in an aggressive manner" the incident was witnessed by another member of the public , a woman. What she had NOT witnessed was why the guy (my guy) became aggressive in the first place . What my guy knew however & what she didn't know was that the whole incident ,the entire incident had been recorded (A & V) by a dash -cam Whose dash -cam ? The dash-cam in the car driven by the guy that my guy "acted aggressively to" The whole damn scenario had been recorded ..........the police knew that because when my guy was arrested he insisted that the police obtain the dash-cam footage from the "poor innocent victim's" car . They obtained it ,they had it in their possession & they knew .....just like my guy knew..........that the guy with the dashcam had driven straight at my guy before my guy reacted. It later transpired that the witness to this incident was an ex-police officer who withdrew her statement when presented with the dash-cam recording. The police never charged the driver of the vehicle despite them having footage of the whole incident . The wrong guy got arrested. There is a God : Three years ago my guy was one of the prosecution witnesses in a court case where his old adversary was charged & convicted of attacking 3 people (2 men & a woman) with a shovel . He was given a suspended sentence & it was further revealed that he had a history of violence . On that infamous day my guy was also confronted by the guy with the shovel ........Shovel-guy claimed in court that my guy was the one who wrestled the shovel from him & then threatened to flatten his head with it. My guy swore under oath that " I picked the shovel up & walked away ...........I'm an old guy etc. ....." Being arrested left a bitter taste in my guy's mouth , revenge is sweet however. It is highly unlikely that I would ever again call on the police for their assistance.........besides I've now got a shovel. All lives matter.
  21. Not a memorable line of Minimates (for me ) but I am now surprised to see the apparent rarity (on eBay) of the Iron Fist box set ?
  22. Thanks for giving a shit & replying I'm not overly clever nor particularly dumb with computers but I am f*cking savvy with eBay so this has rocked me. To answer your question re: results..........the listings (in any eBay search ) just do not appear......same room ,same router, same wording, same 'addresses'.......... Your suggestions ....ebay accounts ,anonymity,etc. ....have been explored with little success. This isn't the worst thing that is happening in my life at the moment but I am intrigued.
  23. Weird but true ......... I was keen to see Yb's listings on ebay but I guessed there had been a change of plans when after a couple of days my searches found no fruit ............ until today . I had been eager to see the pictures as yb's pics are always superb yet .....until today............ I had seen no pics because I had seen no listings ! Also.................... I have various sources of internet (ebay) connection yet only one router . Here's the rub .....only one of those points of connectivity ( my MacBook) allows me to find those listings & that has just happened today yet my 2 PCs still show zilch . Explain please .........& remember... I am old so go careful
