Minimate Spotlight #16 Vault Guards

Filed under: Minimate Spotlight — Donny B @ 6:27 pm

Action figures have long been a perfect compliment to comic books, since every kid (or kid at heart) has that natural desire to act out adventures with their favorite heroes off the drawn page. Every so often, a unique style of figure comes along that breaks the mold, so to speak. Each Saturday, Donny B will be showcasing various offerings from Art Asylum’s take on the ‘block figure’, with a weekly spotlight on Minimates.

What do you do with all those super villains after they get arrested? In DC’s continuity, the most favored spot to place a captured baddie is Arkham Asylum. But in the Marvel Universe, it’s a place known as “The Vault”.
Thanks to technology from Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor, the Guardsmen who work security in The Vault are able to keep super powered villains in check even without special powers of their own.

Art Asylum decided to utilize the “Vault Guards” as their army builder for Marvel’s 30th wave, giving collectors a chance to own yet another character (or rather, characters) who may never have been produced otherwise.

As I’ve stated in the past, I love playing around with lighting. I also love trying to use random objects as background filler. In this case, I arranged various parts from a computer that I had recently disassembled, and highlighted everything with a few yellow and blue lights.

  3. Are medical concerns with the vacuum worth consideration
    and after that how much consideration. They said they just don’t have to trip throughout the hose.

    Now, most people know concerning the basic principle regarding how most
    dryers work.
