AGENT 88 KICKSTARTER MINIMATES

Recommended Posts

So over on Facebook Digger has posted an image of the first Agent 88 minimate, a cool promo mate with only 400 being made and available in the gift bags at the World Versus event at SDCC this summer!

....& so the hunt begins, where do we go & how much does it cost ?

Excited ? Need I ask?

Not me.

My first thought was ironically "BHM s gonna have a coronary."

In case anyone was wondering, I won't be able to get these. But I think it's a cool idea, and a great way to promote his film.

Collecting the giveaways is the most frustrating part of my Minimate collecting. I only ever had my hands on one Battle Beast and I gave it away as a prize. I don't have Goth Girl either. Agent 88 will no doubt show up on the bay.

Even though I'll be at SDCC, I know I'm not pretty enough to get into that "Versus World" event thingy. Sounds like something that'll be for Cool Kids Only.

Did anyone else listen to Digger's pitch for the Agent 88 project on AFI's 10th Anniversary? This. Sounds. Terrible! An old lady with dementia as a wolverine-level best killer ever? UGH! I guess this is as close as those of you wanting Golden Girls minimates might get.

BHM was spot on on his impression of Digger in another post. Digger talked me OUT of interest on this line.

Okay, the kickstarter page is up for the Director, Producer and Creator, world renowned Artist Digger T Mesch. (No, I'm not joking.)

Check it out here. Also available are descriptions and shots of the Minimates incentives.

It seems to me that it would be cheaper to order the wave (4 two packs) for $88, and then order the remaining 2 pack for $38. You'd also need the single boxed Agent88 for $28. So assuming it works out right (and I'm not saying it would. They could send you 4 of the same packs), you could get out the door with all 11 Minimates for $154. That doesn't count "OMG! Looks kids! You As A Minimate! :woot: " or the 1000 Peter Mayhew 2 packs. Which actually come out to be about $5 a pop. You could buy those and resell them on ebay for $20 with free shipping and come out ahead. Man, which I had $10k to do that with... >.>

But essentially it's $154 for 6 versions of an old woman. That none of us care about. <_<

Good for Digger! Great to see he's still invested in Minimates as a brand while continuing his other artistic pursuits. My only criticism of the Kickstarter page is that there are too many rewards - if it was limited to 7 or 8 options it would be easier to navigate.

EDIT - Just sent a question to the Kickstarter page if they would consider offering a 'Minimates-only' reward. The show itself seems pretty cool and I'd definitely support it if I could snag all of the Minimates they're offering.

EDIT #2 - I'm an idiot - I just saw that you can get all 10 for $258 and 8 of the 10 for $88...

So people can buy custom bobble heads now for like $100.....imagine buying custom minimate from the folks that make em? They should offer that deal on their site. Say like $300 for a custom minimate of you in packaging. I'd but that for a dollar....rather 300.

I must admit I was tempted by the 1,000 exclusive Peter Mayhew sets for the toy store. If it had been 500 I would have been even more tempted. As it stands, I went with the Digger minimate 2-pack. :)

Kickstarter is a fundraising campaign. You "promise" to contribute a set amount, but you are ONLY charged if the goal is met within the allotted time frame. In this case, they are trying to raise $88,000 by August 8th. If they don't hit the goal, then basically it wasn't successful and your credit card isn't charged for your "promise". This also means the Minimates may not make it into production.

Not sure which set is the best, I started to scroll through the list and then zoned out like Homer...

I had a long paragraph detailing my thoughts and opinions about this and just decided to delete it and instead post that I wish Digger and his crew the best of luck in their endeavors.

I did it once. Me. I thought better and deleted something. That alone should tell you something. But the three of us? And apparently BHM's keeping his mouth shut too?

Interesting...
