Thanks, guys. Feels good to complete something that took years to track down. I never pay inflated prices, so that took even longer.

Mostly all figures and toys made of him, minus the busts and statues cuz I'm not really into those. So this Minimate is like my holy grail when it comes to minimates. Love it so much, I customized it further.

Yeah, I do love the iron-spider!

I think my favourate spider-family suit would be scarlet spider (kane) because it looks badass and cool. I think my favourate minimate of all time would have to be the daredevil from wave 1 simply because I have a thing for the early minimates.

Yeah, the early ones were very cool as well. Some of them still stand up the test of time.

Well you've come to the right place blue!

Minimates are basicly lego minifigures, but good. They usualy come in two packs. They're not really that cheap though, but if you really like them, it's worth the money There are also alot of websites devoted to them, forums, blogs, customising advice, reviews, statistics, all sorts! You should typein minimates into the computor for more information.

If ya start collecting from the point you get into them and on, it doesn't get that expensive. The ones that have been missed out on are the ones that usually fetch alot. I jumped in like at wave 14 of the Marvel ones and although I'm extremely selective on which ones I buy, I haven't paid more than eight bucks per 2-pack. I only own two that cost me around nearly ten or twenty bucks. Best part is that sometimes they release a 'best of' wave that makes some of the harder to find Marvel ones easier to get. It's a great middle finger to scalpers and a great time to pick some up if ya missed any, but they're not for everyone though. Some peeps don't like the way they look and it's a shame they don't make DC ones anymore.

Yeah, the cheapest DC minimates I've seen on ebay (still in two packs) are 15, and that's just the characters no one wants to buy like star girl. I have seen DC minimates go up to 30 on ebay. The ones from the first series cost the most, followed by wave 2&3. Those were the best waves. Also the most expensive waves. Also, the C3 DC minimates cost absolutely tons. I think I've seen them go for up to 80. I have a star saphire and Hal Jordan from wave 1, unboxed though, but they could still ftch a bit, and I have a M&S variant box for a C3 set (the mini batmobil) which could go to up to 100 on ebay. the minimates from the first 3 sets are also killers to find, especialy boxed, but I find it suprising that DC minimates half their ag are going for about the same rate on ebay. Well, atleast they did last time I checked. I renember once on Amazon I saw a wave 3 ultimate wolverine and ultimate saertooth for 15, even thought that's alot of cash, it was good value for what you're getting as they're about 10 years old now. As much as I wanted to buy them, I knew I couldn't because I knew I would not be able to resist getting them out of the box and devaluing them. Also annother minimate I'd love one day is the sentinal MAX one, but that costs about 80-100 now .

A preview of what could have been.


Maybe if DC minimates lasted 1 or 2 more waves....
