Norm, you're a purist at heart and cannot put a T-3 on anything other than the fixed-height GST-30 specifically designed for the T-3.

Actually, "in real life", they're more like 3' tall!

OK, OK, I will make a stool for him to stand on and apply about 30% power to a shrink ray.

One of my mentors from southern Cali, Jerry Strong, would have had a lot of issues with me if I used the wrong legs

There is actually an answer for this, LOL The basic Minion is 105cm or around 3.5 ft tall https://www.animationsource.org/despicableme/en/custom/&id_film=135&nump=8491

That totally catches the personality of many Imen from my past.
A 5gal bucket or atop the instrument case would be more believable.

Dang it, you are correct sir. Wait a moment, no one is standing on a T3 case, LOL. The most modern instrument I have modeled is a Geodimeter 600, so, it will have to stand like this for a while.

I know that most Wild instruments came in the very durable watertight bullet case.
The T3 inside bullet case came packed in a wooden shipping case for travel purpose.
I can only remember it having a heavy duty handle on top and and it took some room to open and had to be moved to the tailgate to open and eventually was discarded from the truck.
I've searched images and have not found a pic of one.

Then again, a Minion would probably stand on top of another Minion.

That's very unsafe. No cones; parked truck or flashing lights to divert traffic. That little guy is going to be very flat soon. The instrument probably wouldn't even sell on eBay either after a direct hit. Tsk, tsk!

I have the travel case for mine, it is a pyramid just like the T1's and T2's with a top just flattened enough for the handle. Besides you are correct, a minion would stand on another minion
