The Best Minimates of 2014 (Red Carpet Extravaganza & Award Show on p. 6))

Recommended Posts


Happy New Year Minimate Multiverse, the time has come again for your voice(s) to be heard. Voting for The Best Minimates of 2014
is now active. For those of you who have participated in this event
before, you know the drill. For those of you new to the MMMV, here's the
rundown of what you gotta do:

Posted below is a list of every minimate produced in 2014 (211 mates by my count) and the 25 categories for which they are eligible to be voted in. You will submit your top 3 choices per category (unless otherwise indicated) in descending order (first choice, second choice, third choice). The standard 3 points, 2 points & 1 point award system will be used as it has in past award shows.

I'd like to keep the results a surprise for the "big award show" in February, so please send me your votes via PM. But I know there are some of you who want to publicly showcase your picks, so to you guys, you can post them in the thread. Voting will take place starting January 1st and run all month, as many of you are still awaiting minimates released in December. Voting will officially close January 31, 2015.

afterwards I will post all the winners in a grandiose awards show. And
making its return will be the ever popular red carpet pre-show.

may have neglected to name some minimates in certain waves or boxed
sets, but that's because they were listed in a complimenting wave or
set. If I have accidentally neglected to mention a minimate altogether, please tell me and I'll add it to the list. Look over your collections, start thinking about your choices and have fun. Please feel free to ask any questions.

No! We don't want to see your amazingly done awards show with great humor and incredible photography! No on here waits all year in anticipation to see what hilarious hijinks Thing, Serif and DP will get into. And no one here wishes that all your awards shows would be collected into a printed anthology! No One!

Sooooooo.... when does the show start? biggrin.png

I won't post all of my submissions here, but I will stump for my sleeper pick, and that is Fighting Chance Captain America.

I got this figure because I wanted the Falcon he came with. He was to be IMMEDIATELY relegated to the parts bin. But I couldn't do it. I MADE ROOM on my shelf to display him, just because he looked THAT GOOD. When I eventually decided I NEEDED the Cosmic Cube from Robo-Skull, I didn't get the Skull as a single figure on ebay, but bought the two-pack from Luke to use the harness to try to improve my Maverick custom. The figure is just so well done, and it's one I'd literally NO interest in to begin with. To me, that's the definition of success in this category.
