Minimate Spotlight #56 Thing

Filed under: Minimate Spotlight — Donny B @ 8:49 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.

Benjamin J. Grimm, A.K.A. “The Ever Lovin Blue-Eyed Thing” has had many Minimate incarnations over the years. From the very basic Minimate body, to power-house chest pieces, to all-out sculpted parts completely covering the Minimate body, Thing has been given all the different style treatments that Art Asylum have implemented over the years. This week, we’re taking a look at one of the very first releases Minimate collectors were given – ‘Clobberin Time Thing’

Behind the Image:

This was a simple photograph, just like the Picard and Steel photos from previous posts – just a Minimate in front of a computer screen. No photoshop work required.
