Minimates Update/Re-Do Wishlists!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The stuff that comes to mind for me are what i consider nessecary updates for old figures that don’t fit with the more modern styles or are too dinky if they’re supposed to be bulky characters. They are:

- Invisible Woman is the classic blue/black costume. It should match the “Best of” Mr. Fantastic colors and style

- classic 1970’s Luke Cage, Power Man

- classic Iron Fist (no bulky torso cover. He’d include two collars that extend down his torso, each showing his chest with and without the dragon tattoo)

- Abomination

- The Destroyer

- classic Rhino (no jingle bell armbands on his wrists and shins, just flat costume)

- Daredevil (yellow costume)

- classic Stealth Iron Man (use updated armor mold)

- And I wouldn’t even mind another classic Hercules because the torso capper they used on the original is my most hated piece ever created.

Would it be too much to ask for a black and white Punisher too? We've got t-shirt and trench coat, we've got two of the 4 live actions we've got the classic black and grey, and we've got blue and white. But no black and white. Which sucks.

We definitely need that Punisher, I don't understand how it hasn't happened already.

This might sound odd but I think we need an updated classic Thor. We've received all the pieces so we can put a good one together but DST hasn't actually released one.

I feel like the TRU 12 First Apprarance Thor is perfect. For me, anyways.

I've said it many times.........Thor isn't Thor unless he has biceps ...it is integral to the character  . Howard the Duck & The Toad (example) Minimates have the same size arms as the most powerful Avenger .:huh:

Have I ever mentioned the Thing ? :wallbash:

Meh. He’s not as big as Thing or Hulk. I don’t need a giant muscley Thor. Reminds me too much of Liefield!

I agree totally with this

I'm guessing Liefield would've designed all minimates without feet ? 

With respect to you MMan the TRU 12 Thor is a spot-on Minimate ,accurately depicting Kirby's first Thor as he appeared on the cover of Journey into Mystery #83 looking IMHO the leanest he ever was or ever will be  .........it's a memorable comic & a memorable Minimate which I too like , I like a lot of the 28 other Thor Minimates as well .

I would also be amongst those people that "don't need a giant muscley Thor"  but I would like....as I said....an increase in the upper part of his Minimate 'arm' .

Finally & perhaps astonishingly I think I'm in the minority ...once again...in my belief that Thor Minimate upper arms have actually 'grown' on recent releases . I confess that I am currently unable to adequately confirm this as a fact (my collection is on the move once more) but a quick scan of all the Thor's in the MMDB seems to show a perceptible 'growth' of the upper-arm .

Newer minimates do seem to have wider arm and leg pieces, and longer hip and neck joints.

I’d also like to see a new classic Thor. With Kirby Thor, Perez Thor and some silver paint we basically have a perfect version, it just needs to be put together.

I guess I shouldn't be so against this, I did just make an annihilation Drax with bulked up upper arms 

I did just throw some bulked up shoulders on a classic Thor and it doesn't look so bad at all

Glad i'm not alone. I really hate it. If only there was a print underneath or something, the Minimate would be improved about 90%.

On the topic of Hercules, someone a while back used the AoA Rogue necklace piece over a Ryu torso and removed the skirt and I think it works fantastically.

I don't care for the way bulked-up upper arms look on an otherwise normal figure. I don't think there's a regular humanoid character that can't be adequately represented with either the standard body or a bulked-up one.

I think there are a few places that chest piece can work, it's certainly not worse than the one their using now, but Hercules was not a good character to use it on. He would have been much better if the sash was a separate piece on a normal body.

What I like are the options to display characters how we want them without resorting to customizing. I wouldn’t mind a Thor like that if you could remove the bicep cover on IF you wanted to. And if I saw one in person, I might actually like it!  If they packed it with a bulked up Destroyer... that’d be a thing of beauty! 

Same thing with that Hercules. Had they a detailed torso under that awful chest cap, it would’ve been so much better. I trimmed off the shoulders on mine and had someone paint them, but that’s not an option for everybody.

God how I hated that chest cap sculpt. I hated it in preview images and I loathe it now. Luckily I think the only noticable use of it I can’t work around it is, yep, Herc.

I honestly had considered using that but I couldn't immediately find a chest block that matched the arms and legs. But even still, the Rogue bit - it's not quite right for that design. Very close though.

Ya sure it isn't perfect, but in considering what we got? I'm more than content with it.

We'll never get them ever but I would love to see the Ultimate Universe re-done. And in most cases actually finished off.

That's what it looks like, Shaman crotch and the Street Fighter chest block I was using for someone else (and it still doesn't match). and there's my kitbash between the two Wonder Men, since someone asked - Chest, arms and belt from one and everything else from the other..
