I think there was a thread before the board got erased, though I think it was a joke thread. But I had a serious question for him so I figured I'd restart the thread

how many Minimates/select figures do you hang on to? You seem to get samples of everything, you can't possibly hold on to everything can you?

We lost this thread? Damn, that was great.

Okay, let's see... if you hadn't gotten into the toy industry, what do you think you'd be doing now?  Professionally that is.

I hang on to most of it. Sometimes I donate a replacement piece if it's needed for a customer if we run out, or if we lose the factory-supplied spare parts. But I have boxes in my office, in my closet, on my porch and in my shed. I like to have them if I want to do a photo shoot with multiple characters from multiple series, or if I need to refer to something. My wife is understanding, for the most part. Most were early paint samples, so I bet some are slightly different.

Favorite Minimate?

Tough one. Maybe the mini-Zach youbastards made for me. Production-wise, maybe MODOK.

I don't know. I have few skills. Maybe blogging for an entertainment site, which I did for a few years between toy gigs (it went under), or maybe copy-editing for an dull non-toy publication.

Most of the time!

I have no idea. The warehouse was cleaned out and sold, and I THINK the Megos went to the new NYC office for more shoots, but I don't know where they went after that, or what happened to all of our DST figures or Minimates.

I have been most of them: Wolverine, Leon The Professional, Kraven the Hunter, Jesus from The Big Lebowski... To do certain costumes, I would need to look fundamentally different. Like, say, Jack Burton or the Road Warrior. But I'd like to play Snape before I die.

What's your favorite book, fiction and nonfiction?

Thanks? <_<

Fiction, probably one of the Terry Pratchett Discworld books with Moist Von Lipwick, or maybe the first Dirk Gently book by Douglas Adams, or maybe the Caves of Steel by Asimov. Hard to say. Rarely do I sit down and read a book I've already read AGAIN. I'd rather read something new, you know?

Nonfiction... uh... have I read any? I'm sure I have. I MUST have. It's been a while.

Jughead Jones, because we'd just eat hamburgers. If you haven't read the new Archie and Jughead series, I recommend them.

If you could choose any license to produce Minimates, what would be your top 3 and because of which characters?

1. Harry Potter, because of everybody, although I would try to include things like centaurs and thestrals and hippogriffs.

2. Hellboy movie or comic, because of Hellboy, there are so many great variations. Plus, Liz Sherman flame effects!

3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail, because of the Black Knight (body parts are already removable), the three-headed giant (he's three, three, three Minimates in one!) and Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Film.

There are plenty of one-off nostalgic movies that I could pick: Big Trouble in Little China, Labyrinth, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, etc., but I don;t think they have as much potential. And obviously Indiana Jones and Star Wars would offer large worlds and I think do well, but they're easy answers. Of course they'd be great to do. G.I. Joe would be great, as well, I grew up on that more than Star Wars or He-Man, but I don;t know how it would do.

I'd die for some Monty Python and the Holy Grail minimates.

I remember Chuck responding to a question about Harry Potter in a mailbag a couple years ago by saying he thought the time for HP had passed, but I think it's pretty evergreen.

Okay, a question.  I saw this one in a mailbag the other day: if you were to have your voice replaced by any cartoon character, whose would you choose?

Those wolverine claws look pretty good.

 

What was your favourite minimate accessory?

 Glad to see this thread back! Anyway, here's mine (no, it's not about Moon Knight): You wake up and find out you're a mutant. Sentinels are human soldiers with special equipment to track down genetic anomalies, but they don't patrol the streets yet. However, there are mob lynchings and constant hate crimes. What do you do? The options are:

1) Join Xavier's school.

2) Join Magneto's Brotherhood.

3) Take the cure.
