Hey kids, do you like Minimates? How about Minimates, only made of vinyl and unarticulated…but
the same size? two inches taller?
I confess I have trouble seeing the point – when I first saw these, I figured they’d be substantially bigger. I guess the goal is to put them in poses that aren’t quite possible for the standard base body, but if that’s the case, I might have expected somebody like Spider-Man before Kevin Smith.
Nevertheless, as a budding podcaster myself, I can only find it a good sign that the field is now a gateway to toys of one’s own…even if one has to be both a famous director AND talking specifically about Batman for it to happen. Now bring on a Chris Hardwick one so I can enjoy having him eaten by the Walking Dead Minimates, over-analyzing it as he goes.
