Cover/scene recreations?

Recommended Posts

With wave 77 giving us a Kraven's last hunt homage with spidey and the grave stone/dirt, I was wondering if there are more minimates that could benefit from something like that. Maybe it's a good, original way to get us some A listers without feeling like "ugh, another Captain America!" 

I've got nothing, but I just thought of the idea, I'm sure there's plenty.

I'd take "Silver Surfer" #4 just for Thor & those massive helmet wings (Buscema) .  I'd happily take another Surfer but (I still have to say) it would have to have the 'new' knee design that is way overdue IMVHFO .

Sorry let me kill that dead before your great thread idea gets diverted ...........I (just me) thinks that Minimates deserve more than a 90 degree knee angle .

This cover to Captain America Annual 8 would give us two A-listers and possibly a cool "in action" alternative version of Cap's shield (maybe Wolverine's claws as well?).

Fantastic Four#347 ~ New Fantastic Four 4-pack (remember those?)

Tales of Suspense #58 ~ Captain America vs. Iron Man (alt. Chameleon head)

Uncanny X-Men #268 ~ Black Widow, Captain America, Wolverine, and a base for them all to stand on

Fantastic Four #249 ~ Gladiator and the Thing (Mechanism similar to Puck or the Fastball Special hands)

Amazing Spider-Man #11 ~ Ditko rendered figure designs. New Octopus arms to recreate the position.

Wave 72 wolverine with the arrows through his costume is a good example of what I'm talking about

Too late. How can a squared off .75" appendage physically accomplish that, though?

It could be accomplished ,as I said, with a new design BUT as I said I seem to be the only person that isn't satisfied with a 90 degree knee angle .

Unless you also modify the feet, you don't know squat.

And I'd be down with The Legion of Monsters.

Modify the feet as well ? :jawdrop:  ...Heaven forbid ! :D 

Minimate feet in several licences have become 'one' with the lower part of the leg ,most notably TMNT .................. take a look at any of the last half dozen or so FF 'Things'  .....notice anything about his ....er...unmodified feet ? 

 

Back on topic Avengers #57 ...red Vision .

But isn't he actually white in the issue?

Yeah, but I don't know how to pinpoint what exactly I meant I guess. I guess accessories on A-listers like the Spiderman has dirt accessory and a grave stone. Not a red Vision

I'm seeing a lot of chatter, and a few actual covers... where are the pics of 'Mates in cover re-creations? Bring them on!

This may not exactly fit the theme but a Thing with a portal from Fantastic Four #51 ("This man... This monster!) would be pretty cool.

On topic, we had a contest a long while back, and here was my submission:

That brings back memories. 

Also, how I would change so much with my better Photoshop skills.

You guys nailed It! I did a page from Uncanny X-Men 138 and it took forever so I am really impressed with people that do covers.  Well done!.

I can't believe how unimaginative some people are - Silver Surfer #4? Captain America Annual #8? Uncanny X-Men #268? You literally can make any of them right now with Minimates already. There's no element that requires anything "special" like a gravestone or a dirt mound to dig out of. 

Other than a jumpsuit Black Widow.

Well, people largely missed the point of the thread anyway so I guess it's not too surprising.

Daredevil #182 would work even if it would be kind of similar to Kraven's Last Hunt Spidey.
