Fifth Element Custom Minimates Taunt Me

You probably know by now that I'm a huge fan of The Fifth Element. If not, this video is all you need for proof. Well here is something made just for me. But not.

These are custom made Minimates created by Luke Porter. Pretty cool, right? From the original post, I thought these were customs but that a real set was actually being made by Art Asylum and Diamond Select Toys (click the link at the bottom and you'll see what I mean). I got very excited at the prospect until someone on Twitter informed me posts like that are just written to sound like a real news item. Sad panda. Either way, Porter did an amazing job, especially on the Diva. He used twistie ties for her tubes! Now if a real set could actually be made or Porter would like to give me his, I'd be happy to add them to my ridiculously geeky collection. :)

Augh! It's probably too late to tell Santa I want to see those in my stocking.

Thanks for posting my customs! I do sell some of my customs, but I don't think I could ever part with these. :)
