Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

Recommended Posts

Got my Nuke, also! Really awesome. The little details and his accessories are so cool.

The hint for the next one has me stumped. My Hulk knowledge isn't the best, but still looking forward to seeing who it is!

Just got Nuke as well, great looking as always.

The hint had me scratching my head for a while, still kinda am but I do have one guess...Can I PM it and see if I’m right? Don’t wanna spoil it for anyone if I’m right lol.

Are there any more X-Men themed characters slated for release this year?

That is correct, no more X-Men specific characters this year. I do have plans for 3 X-villains next year though.

My next Marvel custom will be the giant robot known as Megalith! He is from Incredible Hulk #275, which I loved as a kid. I am nearly finished with him, and I can't wait to show him to you. Megalith goes up for preorder on Saturday.

Wow, talk about a deep cut. Haha. I would never have guessed that.

Can't wait to see what the 'mate looks like!

This would essentially be akin to me making a Krakoa custom... except more obscure, because Krakoa has resurfaced a few times in more recent years.

But I'm trying to draw a parallel that's an obscure X-Men villain that's beloved to me due to being from a comic book I owned as a kid.

I guess Ogre almost fits that description too, but I never loved Ogre. Banshee was clearly the standout in that Factor Three issue.

This will definitely be the most obscure figure from this first year of my custom run. I have another one-issue villain planned for next year for similar reasons:

  1. They will look great as a Minimate
  2. We need more villains
  3. I have the parts to do it
  4. This entire custom Minimate project is fueled by characters that I am passionate about, since that drives me to produce the best customs I can :)

I make a lot of obscure characters, myself. Particularly with Marvel, I'm much more interested in creating oddballs like Oddball than I am the big guns.

Megalith is up for preorder! This giant robot was designed and created to capture the Hulk. Although I tried to get him close to his full height and stature, you can remove part of his legs to shorten him if you prefer (as shown in one of the photos). He includes a standard base and a rubble base. Preorder Megalith here: https://goo.gl/forms/pht9S6TEnzHZf1w62
 
 
For those of you who preordered The Tinkerer, a package with the parts for his table got lost in the mail, so we are waiting for replacements to arrive. We expect to ship him by June 15th.

Pre-ordered!

I was wondering how you were going to get him the right stature. Very cool! To the many Stilt Men who will be sacrified, we salute you.

My guess with the newest clue we were given with Tinkerer is Cassie Lang aka Stature!

I won't confirm or deny that yet, in case anyone else wants to guess. :) Here was the clue that I sent with The Tinkerer for the next custom: An Avenger / Young Avenger from the modern era who first appeared with this alias and costume in 2005, although this person has appeared in Avengers books since 1979

Ok yes it is Cassie Lang in her Stature costume. 😋

She comes with my favorite extra items so far. I don't have a release date for her yet, but it will be sometime next week.

Great choice! I still can't believe we've never gotten the Young Avengers.

Marvel had such a good thing with the Young Avengers, but never figured out how to really capitalize on it.  All the characters were great, the dynamic was fun, and it should have been pushed to the forefront of the line.  Instead, by treading water for years until the OG creators could come back, it all fizzled into what we have now: Some fun characters, but no team to go with it.

What I wouldn't give for a Young Avengers box set with a Patriot, Wiccan, Hulkling, and Hawkeye...

Stature, a.k.a. Cassie Lang, is up for preorder! She includes a broken steel girder and a large scale Stature backdrop. This custom is a limited edition of 30, and the preorder link is here: https://goo.gl/forms/uaoVfCGURNJgoA8C2
 
For those of you who ordered Megalith last month, he will ship this Friday. I'm sorry for the delay on him - I went on vacation for a week last month, and it messed up my custom schedule.
