Nothing here either.

The Minibar mixes it up with the new Star Trek Legacy minimates. Beam on over to Shots From The Minibar to check it out
See where all the comic craziness began at Tales From The Minibar.

Um... help?

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

I made a quick temporary chat room over at the Factory, but I see Shanester is reading this topic, so it looks like our problems might be solved in a matter of minutes.

I pulled part of the transcript if anyone cares.

QUOTE
Shamrock: how about their normal colors?
TM2_Dinobot: cheaper, only slightly worse
luke314pi: the problem I am running into is how to sell the fantasticars without getting in trouble with marvel. I could leave off the '4' stickers, but what fun is that?
boyd: Normal colors are hit or miss. At least for me.
TM2_Dinobot: worth checking out
Punisher: http://jinsdangerous...l-plastics.html
Shamrock: and I shall
MINI_MYTE: Just say they are customs.
MINI_MYTE: How many did you make?
TM2_Dinobot: Luke, how are you making them?
Shamrock: find out how the 3rd-party transformers makers sell their product
luke314pi: I can sell customs of any character in the store? I don't want to get in a legal battle.
TM2_Dinobot: 1 piece or snap kits?
luke314pi: I will be making 20 total
luke314pi: They are about 16 pieces glued together
MINI_MYTE: Wow!
TM2_Dinobot: won't work Shammy. 3rd parties are over seas in the legal red tape that is China
Shamrock: ah
TM2_Dinobot: hmm. thats a lot
Punisher: name it something else?
Shamrock: claim parody?
TM2_Dinobot: here is my thought
Punisher: or let people apply the sticker
Punisher: themselves
boyd: That's a good thought
TM2_Dinobot: sell them unpainted and un glues. label them as "Garage Kits". clearly mark them as customs. you should be fine then
luke314pi: I was thinking of offering it with 4 sets of "fun decorative stickers!" and one of the stickers happened to be a "4"
boyd: leave a space for the #4 on the ships
youbastards: You got me down on that list for one, right Luke?
boyd: then sell or include and extra decal sheet of numbers 0 -9 for customizing
Shanester has left.
luke314pi: ah, a sheet of numbers is a good idea
boyd: the sheet can just have a lot of extra 4s on it
luke314pi: I would name it "Flying Car"
Punisher: here's a topic. Name a custom you attemped but scrapped because it was too hard
TM2_Dinobot: Hasbro said that custom TFs are fine, and selling them is fine, but when you start producing your own and get up into the $100 rage they take notice and are unhappy. Now that's just Hasbro, but i figure most places are they same. Customs encourage sales of product and creativity of collectors. as long as its cheap (read: below $100) and in a limited run (below 50) i think most places are gona let you slid
TM2_Dinobot: e
FP73. Your message was truncated for being longer than allowed by the administrator.
Shamrock: a Left 4 Dead 2 Tank
boyd: the Heckler
TM2_Dinobot: Hasbro said that custom TFs are fine, and selling them is fine, but when you start producing your own and get up into the $100 rage they take notice and are unhappy.
youbastards: not scrapped, but putting off: Speedball
TM2_Dinobot: Hasbro said that custom TFs are fine, and selling them is fine, but when you start producing your own and get up into the $100 rage they take notice and are unhappy.
TM2_Dinobot: oops
Shamrock: did they now?
TM2_Dinobot: Now that's just Hasbro, but i figure most places are they same. Customs encourage sales of product and creativity of collectors. as long as its cheap (read: below $100) and in a limited run (below 50) i think most places are gona let you slide
Shamrock: my Tank turned into that Strong Guy
Shamrock: I had a concept for a Boomer too
luke314pi: I tried to make a tiny articulated Ant Man from the graveyard statue that came with one of the Buffy Palz sets, but it was just too damn small.
youbastards: yay Strong Guy! =)
boyd: Yeah, but Marvel is now part of Disney, and Disney has no sense of humor when it comes to copyrights.
TM2_Dinobot: Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
boyd: My advice would be to tread carefully - do a small run, and never speak of it again
Shamrock: oh
TM2_Dinobot: yeah, im with boyd
Shamrock: there's this site that sells little pieces to make a Halo Spartan Lego minifigure
Shamrock: I wonder what they do for the copyright
TM2_Dinobot: especially if you dont even throw them up in the store but offer them strictly on the board. surefire way to avoid any... Imperial entanglements
luke314pi: Alright, its time for the last giveaway of the evening. The first person to answer will win a Gold Battle Beast Promo! Which Batman minimate came with a bat-dart?
boyd: batman with the batmobile
MINI_MYTE: the second one.
Punisher: fffff
luke314pi: nice quick draw boyd!
Punisher: boyd -___-
Shamrock: oh darn
boyd: booyah
Shamrock: I had to load the batabase
Shamrock: database*
boyd: it's the first question i've known tonight
Shamrock: yeah, I was cheating
MINI_MYTE: Damned index finger typing!
Molybdenum_Man has joined.
luke314pi: I have been hitting Random on the database looking for possible trivia questions lol
TM2_Dinobot: know what i'd love to see? Danger Girl minimates. that is my favorite comic book of all time
MsMarvel_fan: lol. I gotta run guys. take care.
luke314pi: have a good one!
MsMarvel_fan has left.
luke314pi: Does anyone here use a laser printer for printing decals?
boyd: My turn to share - my work in progess on my desktop
MINI_MYTE: Nope.
boyd: http://www.boydstep....shot_100710.jpg
TM2_Dinobot: no
luke314pi: I bought the wrong kind of sticker paper recently, and my laser printer gets too hot for this paper (its a Ricoh). The manufacturer said that it should work on almost any other brand.
Molybdenum_Man: Danger Girl would not translate well given the "ahem" block style of 'mates (unless they can still make 'mates like the PowerGirl one)
luke314pi: Nice WIPs!
MINI_MYTE: Red Hulk Dracula?
boyd: Yeah, from a variant cover. I love the look - haven't figured out how to do the chest yet
TM2_Dinobot: well, that may be. i still want them. i looooove Danger Girl
youbastards: what is the paper doing when it gets too hot?
luke314pi: it bunches up in the rollers and won't go all the way through. The other sticker paper I use works fine.
Punisher: what paper usually does at high temperatues?
Punisher: biggrin.gif
youbastards: lol
TM2_Dinobot: brb
luke314pi: Oh don't ever buy the ultra fine point permanent markers that Bic makes - they are not permanent on minimates. With a little pressure, it rubs right off.
Punisher: oh reminds me, not sure if this is every where, but target price cut sharpie 2-packs to $1
luke314pi: nice
MINI_MYTE: Thanks for the chat gents.It been fun. Have a good night all.
Shamrock: oh, thought of another custom that was too hard to finish
MINI_MYTE has left.
Molybdenum_Man: Good night
Shamrock: I started trying to make whiplash's whip contraption more movie accurate and intricate
Molybdenum_Man has left.
luke314pi: that does sound tough
youbastards: My last wip that's at a shareable point: Moira McTaggart http://img825.images.../5272/moira.jpg
boyd: lots of little wires, i'm guessing?
luke314pi: nice WIP, she has been on my to-be-customized list for years
Shamrock: yep, wires, things to hold them in place, plastic bits where the hinges should have been
luke314pi: I should probably get going as well. I have to start putting the kids to bed. I'm glad you were all able to make it tonight!
youbastards: I want to do a 'yellow jumpsuit' version of her too
Shamrock: except I recently sound some really tiny styrene rods that might be small enough to work with
youbastards: thanks guys, it was a good time and thanks for the tips!
boyd: happy to be here. lots of interesting conversation.
Shamrock: brb
luke314pi: We will definitely do this again sometime
Shamrock: oh
Shamrock: we done?
luke314pi: probably at a different time of day to include the international members
Shamrock: good plan
luke314pi: any maybe even bhm tongue.gif
boyd: can we take the puns?
boyd: night all
luke314pi: I will add a deflector upgrade to the room
luke314pi: night boyd
boyd has left.
youbastards: bye guys, thanks again
youbastards has left.
Shamrock: so long
luke314pi: have a good one everyone!
minijeff has left.
Shamrock has left.
luke314pi has left.

I'd definately make an effort to get involved in the next one of these.

btw Luke... whats going on with the Flying Car of yours then? I remember you mentioning it a while ago (I think). Are we signing up for them now, or is that sort of thing still not decided.

If theres a sign-up sheet or anything... point me in the right direction!
