These Little Bastards are Addicting...


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. My name is Mike and I am a Work Comp Specialist by trade. For R&R I ride motorcycles, play video games, hang out with the fiancee, enjoy all manner of movies/shows and I just started collecting Marvel minimates....which was a bad decision. Lol. I picked up a Falcon/Fighting Chance Cap at ToysRUs the other night and was very impressed by the detail, pose-ability and accessories included with these little guys. They didnt have any more interesting sets unfortunately and were pretty cleaned out. FUTRU.gif

So the floodgates are open and today I ordered the Iron Man 3 Hall of Armors, the Chitauri 2-pack (It was cheap and I gotta have henchmen to fight), and two of the Thor:The Dark World sets. The thing I love about minimates is that they're cheap and they have a ton of characters available. It's so much easier to collect my favorite characters with these than trying to buy premium figures or LEGOs. The accessories really seal the deal. Guardians of the Galaxy is my favorite Marvel property so you can imagine how excited I am for this year. I just pray to all that is holy that Diamond Select makes GOTG minimates. Starlord and Rocket are needed right meow. I saw some customs the other day that looked badass. Also props to Luke's Toy Store for an excellent website and awesome 3d printed stands...gotta get me some of those soon. I'm looking forward to continue collecting and to start customizing displays and characters; also to chat with all you fine folks of course!

Cheers! drinking-39.gif

Man, are you in for it. Collecting Minimates is extremely addictive. Welcome to the Multiverse!

Thank you good sir! Also I appreciate the fast account approval by the mod squad. highfive2.gif

Have you tried crushing them into a fine powder and snorting them? Don't laugh. It works. And much much cheaper than popular alternatives.

I have melted them into a liquid and injected them into my veins. It worked for a while. But now I'm chasin the dragon again. devil.gif

I'm sorry for your loss.................... of a normal life.

I was given my first minimate by an old friend, "Eagle" (some of you have met him) So, it was a 3 inch Mr.T minimate, and he was glorious.... been chasing ever since! I have zero regrets, welcome aboard! You've found a good place here.

Nobody has gotten divorced over these things yet right?.....right? ermm.gif

Planning on doing a little moto ride tomorrow and hit up a couple local ToysRus and Wal-Marts. Just to browse and see if any exclusives are around. I work 4x10s so today is my Friday. banana.gif

P.S. Any current or ex-Military around these parts? I'm Coast Guard but now I'm a reservist. Thanks everyone for rollin out the welcome mat!

Welcome to the madhouse! I remember wanting to only collect Marvel figures. Now I have minimates from video games I've never played, tv shows I've never watched, and even a Madonna minimate. Yep, minimates are that good. Have a blast collecting!

There are a few military guys on here, I'll let them sound off if they want to. I served in the U.S.Marine Corps from 92-96 (most of which I'm not even allowed to talk about)
