Sounds interesting. But a quick question, does the poster have to be of a minimate license, or of anything that we want?

Anything, as long as it involves minimates. You can do something similar to the promo ones with current minimate licenses, or create one for a license that you would like to see, or one of the movie posters, or try recreating a famous work of art, or even just a good picture of some minimates ... tons of possibilities. Need ideas, check here.

What about a poster made out of macaroni art?

Edible art works, I'm sure Luke would give you high marks for that too ;)

For now, yes. But don't get rid of your hunt buddies yet, 'cause you just never know what might pop up down the road ;)

Yes to all. If it's something that would be cool as a poster: be it a magazine cover, album cover, comic cover, movie poster, etc. then it qualifies for this contest :D

I'm hoping I didn't make the good-quality manageable-sized image too big.
