THIS MINIMATE WEBSITE IS FOR PEOPLE WITH LITTLE TIME AND LITTLE TALENT...JUST LIKE ME...WHO WANT TO CREATE THEIR OWN CUSTOMS.
Welcome to Minimate Addicts!
Hi, my name is Shawn. I am an avid collector of all things Minimate and currently have over 2,700 unique minimates in my collection. Along with keeping up with recent additions to the Minimates line, my children (David, William, Abby and Aaron) and I have taken an interest in customizing our own figures. There are a lot of people out there with loads of free time and a lot of artistic talent, but I am not one of them, to be sure. But, I know what I like. My children and I have launched this "Minimate Addicts" website to showcase our simple customs that can be done fairly inexpensively and sometimes with little effort. The key is just to make them the way you like them.
I have included pictures of our most recent customs and separated them into lighter, moderate, and heavier difficulty. Lighter difficulty primarily includes part-swaps and little-to-no painting. Moderate difficulty may include part-swaps, a greater degree of painting and precision cuts with an Exacto knife or other blades. Heavier difficulty could include all of the above, water slide decals, more precision painting and a tracking down of hard-to-reproduce parts that may need some level of modification.
This may sound like a lot of work, but I use it as a stress-release and a great way to share time with my children who have taken an interest in minimates themselves (I'm sure due to my bad influence). Please, enjoy our website and feel free to leave any comments that could be useful to other collectors and customizers. We will make additions periodically to the content of this website.
