ultron has the spirit

you can thank my wife for this one. i was digging through my mates and stopped to show her how light shines through ultron's head. she then started playing with him and posed him like this saying he was a "robot in the rockettes"

doom waits

doom waits in your tree to steal your presents... if that accursed reed richards doesn't ruin his plans

green goblin is an absolute madman. i love this mini version of him and i'm so glad we finally got his glider!

open field

i got some new background materials to help the photos and since cap, thor and iron man were still laying out, i used them for the photo. new characters next time, i promise!

the big three

so after i took their individual photos, i set them off to the side to take some others and realized they looked pretty cool together

 i love the look of this minimate. straczynski and coipel did an awesome job bringing thor back and updating some things and this little guy looks just like coipel's artwork!

i'm not super familiar with the megaman universe...especially not this version of megaman. zero makes for a cool new minimate though.

iron man

there are so many iron man mates to choose from, but this armor is my personal favorite so far

captain america

DST has been knocking the captain america figures out of the park since way back in wave 5. this one is currently my favorite version of him, but we have a slew of new cap mates headed our way in wave42 and TRU wave12, so we'll see if they can top the classic heroic age cap.

it took us a long time to get a gambit minimate produced, but he was well worth the wait

such an amazing minimate. i love all the little details that they are giving mates now. this rogue is miles apart from the first one we got. i chose rogue to end the week in honor of my wife's birthday (rogue, being one of her favorite characters)

transformation venom

i love that DST gave us two faces for eddie brock and transformation venom is an excellent mate. i just prefer the first venom head to any of the newer ones

wild man from borneo

cable is a lot of things - x-man, soldier, time traveller, father, son, leader - but mostly he's awesome.

enter magneto

the new magneto from the marvel vs capcom line is amazing. i love the new helmet and cape. i switched his head, arms, legs and t piece from the villains box set magneto to better match the style of my 90s x-men, though.

i go where i wanna go

wolverine actually said this three times in the first two episodes of the 90s cartoon. i'm loving the the max jet. it reminds me of a mini blackbird

deadpool with no head

i was finally able to get a deadpool thanks to the awesome new marvel vs capcom 3 minimates. i scored two sets and a max jet last weekend, so expect to see some of the new figures next week!

spiderman friends and foes

okay, so I guess only one friend... but lots of foes. I still need a few key minimates before I can do a true sinister six

one of my favorite characters and one of my favorite 'mates

90s x-men

i grew up with the 90s cartoon, so this is always the team i think of when i think x-men. i'm was so excited when they started making these 'mates. they are definitely some of my favorites.



avengers big three

ironman, captain america, thor

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


let's kick things off with one of my favorite x-men and marvel characters
