About

Minimate Factory

This site is a resource for fans of Minimate block figures who would like to modify or expand their collection through the work of their own two hands. This could be as simple as repainting a set of boots or as complicated as resculpting an entire figure. This site is for customizers of all experience levels and skill sets.

If you are looking for information on a certain topic, I suggest clicking on one of the blog categories on the left side of the page. You might also want to check out the Tutorials section on the top menu for detailed guides on selected topics.

I hope you find this site useful, and I look forward to your questions and comments!

About Luke

Luke Porter

I am Luke and I bought my first set of Minimates over 9 years ago. It was the Spider-Man & Carnage 2-Pack from Marvel Minimates Series 2. I saw it sitting on the pegs at Suncoast Pictures, and I loved the style and simplicity. I told myself I would only buy that one pack. Two weeks later I had all of Series 1 and 2. Two months later I was customizing my own Minimates. Four years later I decided to start my own online Minimates store!

I am an artist, graphic designer, sculptor, action figure customizer, comic book fan, movie buff, blogger, cook, gamer, and father of two boys. I have been making custom action figures for over 12 years now. In addition to this site, I own Luke’s Toy Store, a family-run online store specializing in Minimates, and Minimates Central, the best place online to find Minimate reviews.

Thanks for stopping by!
