The two kings of Minimate QCs. Perhaps some friendly competition will be sparked.

Looking forward to what see what comes.

That would require me to start customizing again. I haven't created any new minimates since the last customes I posted in my thread and the last custom figure I did was Megatonus Magnas. a bash of Megatron and ultra Magnus where in alternate history where Optimus is mortally wounded and Megatron's body id destroyed. In order to save one Alpha Trion is forced to choose and Optimus sacrifices himself so his friend can live. Megatron then takes leadership of the disenfranchised autobots and the less violent decepticons and tries to lead according to Optimus' ideals. Basically I came across a Megatron and a gay Ultra Magnus and popped the megatron head on the armor and came up with the story. LOL

Basically I'm saying Captain Paco can take the throne if he wants it. 😉

 

At least until Walmart or Target decide to start carrying minimates and they are readily available again.😈

I am merely a customizer, Prowlar, you are the King as you have good backstories and I am merely going for the looks you make and share with a means to impersonate them and make them mine to a different degree. I could never fully dethrone you nor would I attempt to take the crown.  I merely wanted to share I enjoy your custom MiniMates and hope to one day see more of them.

One thing I have recently discovered is that I need to fully go through my stash of Minimates before I shop Luke's Toy Store or eBay as I now have extras of ones I already had extras of.

I am working on some Marvel What If? customs that are simple to make if you have the right stuff. I will share images once I actually set up the display in my office.

I keep two image folders on a sd card the first with each official character I have including those I've gotten for the variant look/character and the second for customs. That way I can know just by looking what I have. I clip images of what has or is going to be released and keep those handy as well so I know exactly what I still need. Makes life much easier that having to constantly sort through everything.

I look forward to seeing your customs. I'm sure eventually I'll open up the boxes of parts and do some more customizing.

So to update my status.

i am working on ideas for the March of Minimates and even if I don't post them via the contest, I will be posting them here.

I can say that some are my inspiration from Prowlar and some are ideas I have wanted for a while with some creative licensing involved but look decent.

I only wish DC Minimates were more common and at reasonable prices.  So I am working within my means to make what I am making.

 

Happy Groundhog Day.
