  1. A valid point although I question most ? Leg articulation (with Minimates in general) is a sore subject with me , so many minimates have separate feet parts for almost no reason at all ( unless you want to pose the feet 'a la penguin' or Charlie Chaplin .....whilst many others have rigid 'bootlike' appendages which are totally inarticulate ( TMNT /Iron Man etc.etc.) !? Then there's the Minimate knee joint that will only bend 90 degrees .....a gentle redesign to increase the angle would make so much difference to poseability but it seems like I'm the only person that it bothers.
  2. I'm not sure whether I can voice a supportive voice..or not... for the Shang-Chi movie & subsequent Minimates . It's been fairly obvious...leastways from my perspective ....that DST's Minimate direction has been completely rudderless for somewhile f@cking years.
  3. OK you got me with the IMTTA box set . That said I'd like to add that, out of the many Iron Man 'mates that we have had, very few are 'yellow' . Whether or not the DIAB comic version is actually yellow it is yellow in my memories About the closest is the 10th.anniversary Best of version (?)
  4. I yearn for a 'Demon in a bottle' Iron Man minimate ......whether or not he could be classed as a 'missed opportunity' is debatable but he was... .....generally legless. Great comic run.
  5. We'll see whether or not my new openness is going to be a good idea or not . I have an Elf Spock army which,when decanted from their life-support baggies, are ready to take on just about anybody "boldly going" . How big is the army ?
  6. I shan't give up but this is obviously not the right platform for my discussion.
  7. ...& the dough . What a great set of mates they were I wonder if any of his tooling remains available for re-use ?
  8. It's honestly OK Zach I'm actually moving to the lake , in a house that I've been building for the last 2 years . I'm actually getting quite good at it now. Mon Repos. If I appear egocentric ...Amen ! That however isn't my goal , ICGAF about being officially associated with this dream box set but if I'm paying I'm choosing... with an awful lot of help from my friends (or foes) ....Chef Duff got his way so why can't I .
  9. Thanks for the candid reply, please note that I am serious about this ,so I'll remind you that I'm not 12 years old & that I am quite aware that the market for my Minimates set would be the US & not the UK . I'm a fan-boy not fucking stupid. I have no e-tailer warehouse & no barn but I've just sold (a barn) again so, for a little while, I am fairly rich & still not stupid. Luke would undoubtedly be my first port of call , I think he would take me seriously bearing in mind that he has supplied me with a case of every box set ever made & 4 cases of every wave
  10. Inevitably tooling influences choice but I see no real reason to hold back too much , this is about achieving a small dream rather than a huge profit . My 'actual' dream-list of Marvel Minimate characters would include,for example, a 'Mimic' but he's unlikely to be saleable enough .....this is about achieving a small dream rather than losing my shirt I've mentioned the AIM guy, I honestly feel that that one character is simple enough & saleable . Tooling-minimal . The 2nd. character I'd want is, coincidentally in many ways , The Super Adaptoid who is undoubtedly my most wanted M
  11. Some of my favourite villains would come with 'my' wishlist box set , I have a long-term wish to be involved in a fan-boy (albeit old fan-boy) box set . I'd invest $$$ but i get to pick the figures & only one would be a re-run ... an AIM guy ....obviously. Seems a bit harsh to me that Luke had to sign up for 3000 sets now that a 1000 run, SDCC exclusive has been announced ! Zach ,should I now be encouraged to formally pursue a 1000 run fan-boy box-set ?
  12. Mute button ! All this time &.....who knew ? I'm smiling broadly as I recall several or two incidents where I have lost my patience with Minimates, DST officials, fellow-members being pricks , fellow-members implying that I might be a prick(the very thought ?),other pricks * , Moderators (....obviously not TBT), the weather , unpainted FF characters , flavour of the day Gold promos, *Digger, occasionally myself & just about anything I fancy moaning about. I've actually spent hours typing (with my regulatory 2 fingers),my generally, venomously witty ,often hilar
  13. thereasonsy : Zach doesn't make the choice of figures , he is the guy that delivers the news . You know that, as do I & I was, perhaps,remembering ourselves, to not shoot the messenger. I looked back on Zach's post &, from where I sit ,the 'expectation', his expectation ....was expected
  14. In retrospect.... succinct. I've said it before ,you are between a rock & a hard place .
  15. I had my second jab yesterday & that might be slowing me down , I generally spot sarcasm but I am genuinely unsure what you are saying . I'm also aware that I am also perceived as being sarcastic , I can be ....& I'm not in this instance. So here's the question ....are you saying that SDCC exclusives have been historically hard to get hold of ...or are you saying that IYO they weren't particularly elusive? I was going to PM question to you but if we all did that then there'd be no forum would there ?
  16. Spoilers Despite my omnipresence on this forum I originally avoided any BSG thread for quite some time , I had every BSG 'mate release way before I'd seen an episode of the show. What a show !
  17. I loved BSG & I would have loved to have seen this hex/6 concept back in the day .
  18. Oh ...that need Subtlety (that really is a shit word to spell) can mean everything to a sometimes cynical collector . I'm not a big fan of NBX 'mates but I do appreciate them , this set I understand .
  19. Different facial expressions make these a bit more desirable . Although I know exactly what it is between the Clown's legs , I still can't help myself giggling like Beavis .
  20. The NBX set is a bit more logical & that Clown is a bastard to find in the wild . 1000 sets ! I've said it for years but here's some actual confirmation of how limited many Minimate releases are.
