Hey guys, I have been unbelievably busy with my other business this summer, and it has left me with no time for customs. Gorr is currently about 30% finished. My workload will lighten up in August, so I expect that is when he will be finished, and then I can get to work on the next custom subscription. I have some of the designs completed already, as I worked on some ahead of time in 2020, and they are some really fun characters. I'm sorry for the delay!

Gorr?

 

… is… he still purchasable or did I miss out?

Unfortunately he was very limited and sold out immediately - sorry! I can make more if you supply the parts I am short on - I would need a Neomorph or Teenage Neomorph from Alien Covenant (the Toddler and Chestburster will NOT work), a Predator Hound, and a Hooded Michonne hood.

I have my next 24 customs planned out. :)

I also keep a spreadsheet for what parts from each set I am able to use, and then I know what parts are available for future customs. For example, at one point I had 35 sets of Patch/Lady Deathstrike. So with my spreadsheet I knew that I could use Patch's upper body for Arcade, lower body for Black Tom, and Lady Deathstrike's hip piece for Jack of Hearts, one arm for In-Betweener, hands for Black Tom, and an upcoming use for her legs.

Here are some fun numbers: My customs have used parts from 90 different Minimate base figures so far, and let's assume each Minimate has 8 usable parts (hair, head, torso, set of arms, set of hands, hips/legs, set of feet, one accessory). That is 720 different usable parts available to me. I probably average 30 customs per release, so I am drawing upon a pool of over 21,000 Minimate parts to create these customs.

Oooooh - very excited. Will there be any X-Men characters/supporting characters?

5 out of the 12 are from the X-Men side of Marvel, although not necessarily from the main Uncanny X-Men / X-Men titles. I would say that among those 5 there is a healthy mix of different X-titles and years represented.

Kid Gladiator or we riot! 
Super excited to see who you offer next, Luke. I always get so excited to whenever the new releases are announced.

I need to create 60 of the Luke Crate custom first, which is an alternate look for a classic Spidey villain from the 70s. As of this writing I only have 3 crates left for preorder. 

Then I will either create the non-Marvel custom that I was planning, or move right into the next run of Marvel customs. I haven't decided yet. :)
