I wan to buy a couple of 3-inch mates ( i want to make darkseid and a couple of other big characters) so i'll maybe try making a 3 inch Sasquatch as well. It all depends on when i finish the other 30 or so customs i have on my workbench (and they all have sculpted pieces and extra weapons so it'll make me a month or so).

Thats what I did. The Mugato is a good place to start for a Sassy custom... I did ditch mine when we got the official release though.

I do think the Sasquatch figure is good considering the look of the character. And considering he's a good guy. However if the Wendigo looks this fluffy that'll be :( He needs to be more menacing.

Damn, Amazon has the Aurora set for $7 dollars......for that price Im probably going to get another just for parts. The hand holding piece, Auroras head/hairs, Shaman's hair and the flight stands are worth that much to me..........

I hear that! I used Shaman's hair for Moonstar, and am painting the white hair piece for Psylocke while using the black one for Spider-Woman.

I just made a Moonstar with SFxTekken's Julia hairpiece but now that Luke sent me an extra Alpha Flight set for one of my $5 Anniversary grab bags, I may have to make another one with the extra Shaman I have! (Never enough Dani Moonstar pieces for me!) Great idea, sir!

Just reposting some comic panels I did for my second Alpha Flight review for minijeff's Portrait Of An Addiction blog. You saw most of the action pics over in the General Minimate Pictures Thread but I wanted to post the review panels here. Enjoy!

Thanks, I tried the Jill hairpiece too but for some reason I didn't like it. I think I couldn't get the black the right color. Can't wait to see yours!2013-06-15123153_zpsd77be86e.jpg

Sorry to post here after so long, but I've only just got around to purchasing the second boxset from Luke.

In regards to the giant boots on Shaman, could I just trim a couple of mm's off the bottom of his legs to balance it out? Or would that makes the peg holes too shallow?

I did that liney, it helps a little bit but not much. I might have WIP pics somewhere, I'll look....

That's a bit of a shame then. Would love to see those WIP's if you can find them. Any other suggestions of shortening him?

In the end I took some sandpaper to Shaman, took a good 3mm off each leg, 1mm on the top of the belt piece and another 1/2mm from the chest. Made him a bit shorter, but still a bit tall for my liking. I've decided its the hair that's still making him too big now.

Liney, I couldn't find my pics unfortunately, but if you take shaman's boots off, hair off, belt off, and line him up with a Minimate who had normal feet ON, they're the same size. So it's a mold issue. I've had the same problem with a lot of the MAX mates, seems like the legs are cast from different molds.
