Alternate Zombie Builds – Series 2!

When Walking Dead Series 1 arrived, I made a post showing some alternate zombie builds you could make. Now that Series 2 has arrived, along with the Amazon Exclusive 4-pack, it’s time for some new zombies! All of the zombies below use parts from the specialty wave of Series 2, along with the aforementioned Amazon pack.

Relocating a Minimate Joint

Have you ever been working on a Minimate custom that required you to move a Minimate head or shoulder joint someplace else? This has happened to me a few times, and I wanted to share a tip with you on how to make the relocated joint stronger.

Displaying Your Minimates: The Sequel!

After a long hiatus (due to opening the new toy store), I am back with a big update to my Minimates display. The last time I made a major change to my shelves was in 2009 when I added tiered Lego stands nested 4 levels deep. You can read about that project and see a video here. But even though I was happy with the structure of the display, I was always bothered by the lighting.

My shelves wrap around a corner in my home office just above my wife’s piano. The main light source in the room is pretty far away, and much of my shelves were in shadow, especially in the evening. As early as 2010 I have been planning to add LED lights underneath the shelves to help with this problem. I was finally able to set aside the time and the money for this project last week.
