A few more DC characters will be added later this month, so check back in a week or two.
Preparations are being made for a special Minimate celebration in February. Every week will have a new Minimate that honors the many different identities of one man. Please join me in February for Hank Pym Month, won't you?
Why celebrate Hank Pym Month? Because February is a short month, and so is Ant Man.
Why celebrate Hank Pym Month? Because Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day and Groundhog Day just isn't enough for February.
Why celebrate Hank Pym Month? Because we forgot to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Why celebrate Hank Pym Month? Because celebrating Hank Pym Year would just be silly.
Another theme month is in the work for April - April Fool's month, where each week a different silly character or dumb idea will get their due. So please join us in April where the fools will rule.
You can find out more about CustomCon 12 here. There's a lot of great customs being shown this week, and I invite you to check them out.
And come back Friday for the continuing celebration of April Fool's month with another foolish Minimate.
In a week or so I should be adding another newly-customized super-group of Minimates to the site. Stay tuned.
More villains coming next week. Then in July - the big Captain America character blowout!
This rampage of villains will continue next week. And then in July - the big Captain America character blow-out!
And next week - the big Captain America character blow-out! Villains! Allies! Be there!
And to round things out, a custom done because I had an extra Thing Minimate - She-Thing.
It's also time to launch another theme month. For the next four weeks, I'll be introducing a new custom from the DC Universe who's name begins with the letter A. So come back often this month to take part in "Four DC Customs With Names That Start With The Letter A Month".
This week - Aquaman.
Anyway, this week's custom - The Atom, the Shrinking Super Hero (a.k.a. the Tiny Titan, the Minuscule Marvel, or the Short & Saintly).
And take the time to look through the other days of CustomCon 13. A lot of great customs have been shown the past weeks from Minimates to Marvel Legends, and it's worth your time to check it out.
And stop by this weekend for the final entry in the "Four DC Customs With Names That Start With The Letter A" Month. Here's a hint - his name begins with "A".
It's the last WizardWorld convention of the year! In my state! And my wife and I went on Saturday! Here's the good and bad:
GOOD: Scored free tickets.
BAD: Overall the convention was disappointing. Some good spots (Artist Alley), but a general lack of programming, or comics. But if you wanted to buy overpriced Marvel Legends figures, this was the place.
GOOD: The second wave of Street Fighter Minimates were on display. They look much better in person than the preview shots that were released.
BAD: No new Marvel Minimates.
GOOD: Got the blue promo Minimate.
BAD: My wife won the Silver Spider-Man, and she won't give him up.
Love you Sarah. Please share.
I've also been nominated for Fujis' Minimate Customizer of the Year award. It's an honor and I'd like to thank everyone who visits this site and those of you who took the time to nominate me.
Second, an announcement - This is going to be the only custom I add to my site this month. I'm taking a vacation from the site to devote more time to the holidays, family and other design projects that I've been procrastinating on. I'll be back adding more customs to the site starting in January 2006.
