A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 336 - Minimates Danger Room Dirama by Luke's Toy Store
Luke's Toy Store is the premiere website for all things Minimates. Luke has been playing with different display ideas for Minimates for years now.. He is constantly creating new bases, accessories and display pieces, the challenge is that most of them are made by hand so they are available in small quantities and on a one and done type basis. This Danger a Room diorama is a perfect example. Although it was available on his website for a reasonable amount of time, I waited until it was sold out to try to buy it so I had to result to eBay to get my hands on one. It was glued together poorly by whomever owned it prior to me but I'm thankful to have it in my collection because it fits the original New Mutants team on it perfectly.
A Custom A Day....
I began toy collecting as a hobby back in 1990 I have always had a
need for custom figures. Toy companies begin action figure lines, begin
to release individual characters to create teams and, more often than
not leave them incomplete. Many collectors find that custom figures
pollute their collection's authenticity by not being mass produced
creations from the toy companies that created the preexisting toy lines.
I disagree. I feel a quality custom action figure enhances a
collection and help create a complete picture.
