Now, is that one promo per cookie? Because I can get you two dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies on Saturday :)

In all seriousness, tomorrow is cookie bar baking day at the house. It's been on the schedule since last year when I decided I'd find a way to be at C2E2 this year, even before I knew there'd be an exclusive. What was meant to be a simple 'thanks' will now be an effective form of brown nosing.

I hope the head and body armor aren't all one sculpted piece. If it is it'll kill the Quark custom I was planning.

Man, I figured the exclusives wouldn't hit eBay until tonight. Didn't think that they would hand them out at the Retailer's Summit.

I hope the head and body armor aren't all one sculpted piece. If it is it'll kill the Quark custom I was planning.

According to the design artwork, the head is supposed to be a slip-on piece over a regular Minimate head. I'm guessing that didn't change.

Is there a more comprehensive design sheet on the site somewhere that shows that? All I can find is the one in the flash movie window on the homepage.

Looking at the control art, Vorin's head looks sculpted like Beta Ray Bill's. Does it say somewhere that it's a slip on mask? And the armor definitely looks separate from the head in the artwork.

I suppose we'll know soon enough!

EDIT: Full design sheet is up at CBR. Head and armor are definitely separate and it looks like the head could be a slip-on piece...

Very nice! Can't wait for the colored version! Ya eBay prices for the translucent red version are ridiculous!

sometimes I like translucent, I like red, in this case, I do not like the translucent red. I really hope to see this guy in standard colors soon.

You. Bastards.

Good for you man. That looks amazing. i absolutely need to track one down. You know, for a reasonable, nondemented price. At least I would hope. I still have no alligators.

Pretty impressed with the promo Beast!

A few tidbits:

Tomb Raider 'mates are go!

Street Fighter X Tekken on display!

Walking Dead mates look great!

No Enterprise on display, but Zach said the proto doesn't travel well.

I got lots of pix, will upload in a bit. :thumbsup:

Zach graciously gave up some promos for a MMMV contest, I grabbed a bunch of posters too.

I don't know what this contest will be, but now, now I will win it.

Can not wait to see pics of stuff. Really hope everyone is having an awesome time.

5 Available. Seriously. I would like to crush these kinds of people beneath my heel.

You 'n me both. I've been tempted in the past to write sellers like this and tell them how ashamed I am of their behavior, but it's technically theirs to do with as they want... and I also don't want to get in trouble on ebay. :wacko:

I completely agree that people are to do with the crap they have what they will and all that. And if there's a market for things and people willing to pay for it (Someone bought one for $100 yesterday, cripes) Free market economy and all that. It just gravely urks me that this guy has five and is just dumping thhem off, while those of us here who would just want one and never sell it, have none. And may never have any. I just want to know where they get them from. I mean, were it me, and I were at cons getting stuff, for free no less, i would find it a great priviledge to be given a thing that no one has any reason to give away at all. It's just a goodwill gesture from companies turned into naked profiteering and it really pisses me off.

While I absolutely will never pay that much money for something that was given away, no matter how much I want it (and I REALLY do want one), i'm mostly just making angry noises now BECAUSE this guy has five (or likely more) and I have none and don't really have much chance of getting one, pending altruism of fellow MMMV people or the world itself. I just want me some Battle Beasts. And I have a serious weakness for translucent minimates.

End bitter ranting.

That said, anyone who wants to donate a Goat my way can know he'll have a very happy home with lots of room to graze and plenty of grass to munch. :whistling::thumbsup:
