  1. In today's Art Asylum Blog,Ask DST #162 Q & A Chuck said that "DC would seem to be a pretty closed door". So I assume that when the guy that runs the company that makes Minimates says that "DC would seem to be a pretty closed door" he means that they are dead ,deceased ,no longer,expired ! However ,maybe he means they are 'resting '

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Over 3 years ago Walgreens produced the first wave of a new Marvel Minimate line based on the animated versions of Marvel characters . 3+ years later there have been 10 waves but .......reading the comments on the MMMV & watching USebay every day.....they are very elusive .

    Tap in 'New Ray' 1/32 Motorcycles on ebay . I'm pretty sure some of them fit some Minimates.

    Motivational Minimate Contest

    I'm actually motivated into finding (if indeed I do have one?) a 2 1/2 inch white blank prototype . I think I have but due to .....er...disorganisation ....I think it might be an idea to partake . I can't recall seeing a minimate with 2 Lego holes in its hooves but then again I don't recall looking

    Muppets Minimates!

    Zach could you please explain the thinking behind the Muppet Minimates ? I'm specifically interested in why some characters got moulded noses whilst other didn't ?
  7. Asterix & Doctor Who would be huge . A Clockwork Orange box-set ? The movie is so ever so dated now but there are still plenty of us fans out there hoovering up any action figure that is being released .....& there are several .

    The Alien™ Franchise

    Completing Minimate lines ? I'm convinced that if DST were to produce a line of Nativity Minimates we'd only end up with 2 Wise Men .

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    They're awfully colourful except for the Symbiote Spidey who is awesomely black & white .........& rapidly on his way to being my ( 90th & most) favourite Spider-man Minimate His packet-mate Hobgob is actually outstanding as well but I can't decided whether his subdued 'orangeness' is a paint -fault (lack of) or pure design.....either way I love him .

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    I received a big shipment of minimates from the US earlier today & I have just finished having a good luck at what has arrived . The consignment brings me up to speed with everything WG & I have to say that most of what I have seen looks superb . That doesn't help the many posters here that can't get hold of them but they'll eventually turn up & when they do you're in for a treat.

    Where did everybody go?

    I'd be happy to pay for completely whole Minimates not 'alf Minimates.

    Where did everybody go?

    I'm merely a collector whilst Ivan's contribution to Minimates is absolutely fantastic . The work that goes into the MMDB is incredible & we are so lucky to have such a resource ....An Ivanmate would sit nicely in my collection. I'd dearly love to sponsor/pay for some sort of Minimate box set but I don't think I am beloved enough by DST to get it off the ground . It obviously wouldn't feature 'me' in any way but it would be my choice of Marvel-mates . I've actually had an idea for quite some while that I'm going to pursue which revolves around a well-known alien life-form that could be completely compatible with Minimates if handled correctly . The actual licence for it would be extremely difficult to get hold of so I've just decided to circumvent the licence holder & do this as a fan boy (!) project . I honestly feel that it couldn't fail but TBQFH ICGAF if it did

    Muppets Minimates!

    Zach is absolutely right & I am wrong....it happens I have just re-read some old PMs from around that (Muppet S3) time & they confirm what Zach has said . I always buy custom cases when I can but I struggled with these.

    Muppets Minimates!

    I read some of my posts 'afterwards' & occasionally cringe . That one was brutal . Here's what I should've said .......... Muppets minimates Series 3 had a chase pack , Newsman & Pepe , one per case . That pack is & was , IMHO, one of the most elusive retail Minimate packs on ebay ever . The wave is also one of the most elusive LCS Minimate waves ever . This has been the scenario since they were first released almost 2 years ago , they have never been prolific on ebay & it transpired that some on-line suppliers were initially caught out by its scarcity . I bought my Series 3...er.... requirements.... from 3 different suppliers which is unique because for years I generally use one , this was out of necessity . The good news is that the Zoot/Lips pack isn't quite as rare as the Pepe pack . Good luck with your hunt elhonez & I'll keep my eyes open for you.

    Kubrick Talk

    I have a hard copy which I constantly refer to ,it's invaluable . There are several items that he doesn't seem to list ....perhaps it's because their (Japanese) names are unfathomable .

    Kubrick Talk

    2 of these GTA box sets arrived today & on first inspection they are pretty little items. It's never wise to compare kubricks with minimates so I shan't be doing that without saying that kubricks are almost an entirely different beast & most importantly bigger than 'mates. That said I'll also say that I am no gamer & I have very little concept of who these characters are, they are unknown to me . What I want to say is that these 'civilian' type characters are packaged superbly , I was once the guy that printed this type of stuff & it is just superb . Medicom have (almost) done away with hairpieces ,each character either has a moulded head with hair or has a hat /mask & it works ...it works well . Each character has an accessory & I'm guessing that these would be 'obvious' to anybody who 'games' . Medicom have always nailed their characters with small /simple hand held accessories which ultimately are almost a part of the character ........I'm thinking 'Lost' kubricks where each character had that accessory that you associated him/her with on the TV show.

    Kubrick Talk

    There most certainly have been previous 4 GTA sets &, for a while, the last incarnation (San Andreas) was extremely hard to get hold of . You'll note that these new sets are ,confusingly, set IV (4) ,set V(5) & ...er...set V(5) 'Heist Edition' . Information on kubricks is always sparse but this list is invaluable http://www.zachd.com/kubricks/kubricks.html .
