These are excellent!  What did you use for Khonshu's head?

I'm always on the lookout for new stuff for the next Minimate Showcase Day. Sometimes I find awesome stuff that doesn't really work out for one reason or another. This set is the Mobile Suit Gundam: Options Parts Set, which comes with some really cool Minimate-scale pieces, however the retail price is $40, and the retailer discount is extremely small, so we would have had to mark these at $45, and I just thought that price was too high for what you get. Plus to really make these work well with Minimates, it takes a tiny bit of drilling.

The missile and blast pieces have a 1/16" metal rod inside that extend out in various lengths depending on the piece. I am assuming this is a standard connection size for Gundam stuff. I used a 1/16" drill bit to drill a hole in the center of my War Machine's shoulder cannon. The single missile piece and yellow blast piece fit perfectly, although they make him so front-heavy that I had to give him a stand. The double-missile launch accessory has 2 metal rods in close proximity, so I didn't mess with that one. The quality on everything is really good - I just wish the price point was a bit lower.

I Hope that's just a clever camera angle for the Hulk/Thor pic. Drilling around there to fix the cloud effect makes me wince.

 

Oh an the Hulk smile makes it all the funnier.

? Yes I left Hulk's bum un-drilled.
