Zach I got your package today and couldn't be happier.  Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to get them into our hands. And I already stuck him in a photo, check it out:

April 2014 , it seems like yesterday !

C2E2 2014 was the pinnacle time for my minimate collecting . Regards Minimates , collecting them is my bag , I 'just' collect them .

However ,that particular minimate brings back memories, good memories, cherished memories.

Enjoy yours funkguerilla, you are very deserving of this brilliant 'mate .

That was a blast to get those (this mate) "in person" that year at C2E2. Insert shameless self promotion of my stop motion video:

 

The new announcement intrigues me.

Could an "archive" section be added to the new site, @DSTZach? So folks could see what has come out in the past?

And how the frack do we get LukesToyStore and the Multiverse higher on that Minimate search result page!?!?!?!?

BHM, a hat tip to you sir.  I agree that the span between 2010 and like 2015 was peak minimate; fingers crossed we get to that peak again.

Onyx, that's a wonderful celebration of your library disguised as a great minimate commercial.  Looks like it took forever to do.  Great work!

Wow. How many individual photos did you have to take to make that? How long did it take to put together? I'm guessing you put quite a bit of work into it.

Yeah, that video was a work project that took upwards of 20 hours to put together. I can't really tell you how many individual photos it was, actually it appears to be 971 frames. I had areas of the library taped off so I could recreate the same shot on a different days. Definitely a labor of love.

Shipped the MMMV and GB promos today. 

And the crazy comes from the launch of the new DST website (check it out), a slight change to my official responsibilities, and planning an alternative to the traditional (and cancelled) Toy Fair.

But there is an announcement coming that will be exciting for MM collectors. It got slightly delayed, but I think we're looking at late Feb.

Hey Zach, I got an email saying that I earned gems from the site. Is this legit? I didn't think I had created an account on the new site yet. 

What changes to your official responsibilities? Are you now the brand ambassador? Do'er of things? Congrats (hopefully).

Please let it be Star Wars!!! I am in for cases of Star Wars products! Or Arrowverse, finally.

Still amazed by that video, Onyx. 

Not sure why you would have gotten the Gems e-mail if you didn't have an account on the new site -- unless they finally ported over the old customers and gave everyone Gems, which are like points. IN which case, congratulations! I need ot find out how Gems work. If you earn enough, they can be redeemed for store credit, I believe. 

And my new job is kind of like a brand ambassador, in that I am more proactively reaching out to other potential brand ambassadors, and getting them to do stuff with our products. It was part of my old job, but I no longer run the old web store, or post on all our social media, so I can focus on it more. I still do message boards (I think? Oh, well) and copywriting. 

And it is not Star Wars, but it is a license I have seen some great customs of, as well as a license I dont think I've EVER seen customs of. And there may be more lines springing from this, it is kind of a blanket license.

Maybe I can even push for a Marvel set as a test for the new website, but we'll see.

Push???   You should get in there like a Wrecker, and Bulldozer your way to whomever makes these decisions...also Piledriver and Thunderball.
