Mega Man Minimates Prototypes

15 posts in this topic

Jazwares has done a horrible job with the Mega Man license and now it looks like at one time DST/AA tried to get the license.

Hopefully,....maybe....one day DST/AA can go after the license again and win when it comes up for renewal.

stupid Jazwares :angry:

Those look horrible to me (Kubricks might even look better), and even though they look to have actual Minimate bases, since the guy only refers to Jazware, I'm guessing that company would have been the one to produce them. Thus making them Minimate-like block figures similar to the I-Men or something. That's sort of what they look like there, anyway.

Hmmm... I've never heard of AA producing prototypes of megaman minimates.

Let me see if I can get DST to spill some beans on this, I suspect they are "other block figures" that happen to have borrowed some minimate parts for the prototypes?

I'm with TBT on this one.....some of those parts look familiar but other parts of those figures just don't look right........

The arms are the only thing that look "Minimate"ish. The torsos don't, the crotches don't, the heads don't, and the legs - I don't know what the eff those look like, but they definitely aren't Minimate legs...

:huh:

Actually, it's a bit of a compliment that he uses the term "Minimates." He could have said "Lego" or "Kubrick". Instead, he chose Minimates as the default term for block figures. Which means our little plastic friends are moving up in the world.

Kubrick or Minimate ......sometimes even AFX aren't sure http://cgi.ebay.com/Marvel-Minimate-WEB-AR...=item518f6d7a22

The Japs seem to use 'kubrick' as the generic term for brick figures ......seems right that the US should use 'Minimate' .

I'm not sure whether either name is officially registered?

These guys in the picture look very similar to many anime kubrick figures yet are clearly more articulate.

Oops.....something I inherited from my dad I'm afraid ......totally no offense meant or should be taken.

Whilst my father ,a Royal Navy Commando didn't single-handedly win the WW2 Burma campaign ,I believe he had a fair bit to do with changing the minds of the Japanese in his particular area ;)
