    TRU Series 26

    Has Walgreens been confirmed as getting this wave?

    Modifying Marvel Minimates

    I think the only specific thing was a captain America jacket, forget what the figure was called. Every other piece was just random. The whole thing is totally painted besides the head. I put some little foam pads on the knees because I hate when designs are painted on and split when you bend the knee

    Wow! Those look great. What parts did you use for that Nate Grey? Looks like a lot of repainting.

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Same. They're definitely a neat way to get characters that aren't in the main line (Squirrel Girl, Man-Thing, etc), but these last two waves have kind of soured me on the Animated guys.

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    You're not alone, YB. My Minimates momentum is waning considerably, and not just with the Walgreens waves. If it wasn't for some custom fodder I needed from Luke's, I'd be spending my cash elsewhere already.

    DC Vinimates

    I am collecting the Arrowverse ones. And then I picked up the Teen Titans. And Wonder Woman. And Armored Batman and Comic Superman. And Catwoman and Joker just arrived. And I have the lanterns. And .... Slippery aslop indeed!

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Wave 8 was found by people back in March, and it still hasn't hit a single store near me. It's been 5 months. Are these collecting dust in a warehouse or were the production numbers drastically reduced from previous waves? I have seen nothing of Wave 9 or Infinity War Wave 2 either. My optimism is telling me to hold out for the Rite Aid conversions, but honestly this is killing any interest I have in Walgreens assortments.

    TRU Series 26

    How about "Walgreens Impossible to Find Minimates Wave 4"?

    TRU Series 26

    How are we numbering this assortment? Is it Walgreens Comic 1?

    Modifying Marvel Minimates

    Just read AoA for the first time (I know, I know) decided I needed to make a few customs from the series. I've got another one or two planned
  14. MisterPL

    What if...?

    Do you mean interesting to retail buyers or end consumers (us)? Because it looks like retail buyers will stock anything with Marvel's most popular characters in the mix, even if they're ridiculously adorned and barely recognizable. I mean, we've gotten two WWII Wolverines. Both are generic soldier bodies with Logan's noggin and popped bone claws. In this context it might as well be "What If GI Joe was a MUTANT?"

    90's X-Men

    That could work. Remember DST's coloring process for animated figures is different for animated 'mates. There'd be no metallic colors (yellow instead of gold). They'd blend in with "Best of/Greatest Hits" though. Given the Fox acquisition, a "Greatest Hits" assortment might be a better place for a Jim Lee comic wave.

    90's X-Men

    I don't particularly like the 90's X-Men designs, but an animated or Jim Lee Beast could probably pass for a needed redo of his classic design provided the hair isn't too ridiculous.
  17. stack32

    What if...?

    But it doesn't mean they'd be interesting to buyers, and I say that as someone who has put together at least one What If? custom. There are definitely some I would buy but many more I would pass on.
  18. MisterPL

    What if...?

    Before Disney we might have had a chance at an official DC/Marvel toy crossover. Licensing is the reason Amalgam Minimates would be more likely offered by Luke as customs. Sorry! Looking at the costumes there are plenty that could probably be QCs but then I thought, hey, these are popular characters. Why not an official assortment? You mean like Spider-Man Noir, Joe Fixit Hulk, and "Patch" Wolverine? The "What If...?" concept fits the Minimates mix & match play pattern perfectly.

    WWF Custom Minimate Preorder Thread

    Here is a hint for my next custom: Originally he was generically named The Super Destroyer, a hooded character that's been played by several different wrestlers. He then left wrestling for a while but came back as part of a tag team known as the Boulder Brothers.

    What if...?

    I honestly had no idea about 'Amalgam' until I googled it .....they'd be a great idea but ....licensing ? If anybody has the time .....& 'amalgam' fillings in their teeth.....read up about 'dental amalgam ' & you'll never feel the same again

    90's X-Men

    I could use a 90s Jubilee, I never got that set she was in. I love the Jim Lee style X-Men and cartoon, Id be down for updates.
  22. Mysterious Stranger

    Infinity War

    I still need the Walgreens Wave 2 exclusives if anyone happens across them.
  23. Mysterious Stranger

    What if...?

    Unless there was a pretty identifying costume, I think a What If? themed set would be a hard sell. “This says its Spider-man but it looks like a secret agent?” I’d be more inerested in the Amalgam characters. Pretty sure the rights are messy as hell but it would be a fun series.
  24. jjwspider

    What if...?

    I really, really like the idea of a What If wave. Some of my favorite stories back in the day were the ones introduced by the Watcher. Would definitely be a fun wave.

    How married are you to that Tarkin? 😄

    90's X-Men

    I think there is a way to do both no? Like Storm in her white costume from the show but she’s a redo of the Black costume one. Jean Grey with an alternative ponytail. Scott with or without a jacket. Morph with extra heads like the toybiz toy...
