  1. Package Format

    Why does Diamond stick to two and four pack formats for ‘mates? Would you all prefer larger packs with more figures that are more pertinent to the theme? Some examples: Warriors Three? Three pack. Sinister Six? Six pack. Captain America 3 mates? One pack for Team Cap, one pack for Team Stark , and maybe another with Crossbones, some Army builders, Zemo, and Ross. I feel like being able to buy an entire team, event, era, movie/show, or theme all together instead of slowly building these groups over time would be more enticing to fans (especially completionists who cry themselves to sleep at night thinking about their missing X-Force team members). You could even throw in an A-lister into the obscure character packs to ensure the big names are always in circulation. Thoughts?
  2. The Mighty Thor: Informal Character Poll #10

    Orrrr... Wrecker/Volstagg Piledriver/Hogun Bulldozer/Fandral Thunderball/Heimdall
  3. wave 74

    Saw these are popping up on eBay and they look different than the solicit pictures. Do we have tray shots yet?
  4. I’m never getting The Wrecking Crew, am I?
  5. C2E2 Speculation

    Yes, yes... With enough bickering, we'll eventually squeeze out a full line-up announcement. This has always been the plan. Let the hate flow through you! Hail HYDRA! Haha. But on a serious note, I feel like at this point Hydra Cap is a shoo-in. And now Riri, I suppose. Also, I can't imagine them releasing a Marvel Now! Magneto without at least a Cyclops or some other S&M X-Men to go with him. And of course, Spidey has a new costume. Is there a Spidey costume we haven't gotten immediately? That and the updated Brock Venom look would make sense for a 15th anniversary pack. Otherwise I would totally snatch up an Unworthy Odinson, Iron Doom, and Mr. Knight. Man, I'm excited.
  6. Logan. (spoilers)

    I'm actually pretty bummed about the lack of merchandise altogether. I need a Laura fig in my life.
  7. Logan. (spoilers)

    So after seeing Logan last night, I couldn't help but to think that this is the first X-Men movie where I have actually wanted minimates of most of the characters. old Logan w/ Caliban Xavier w/ Laura X-24 w/ Donald Pierce Dr. Rice w/ Reaver army builder
  8. LUKE CAGE!

    I really want Wu-Tang minimates now...
  9. Thread idea.

    So, just to spark up some conversations on here (I don't have anyone to really talk about 'mates to in my personal life), I thought I'd propose an idea for a new weekly thread. I thought it'd be neat to pick a different character every week to discuss. What's your favorite version of the character? Least favorite? What version(s) are we still missing? And so on... So to kick things off I choose Wolverine, since he just got a spiffy new wave dedicated to him. My favorite Wolverine minimate this far has been the X-Force black and grey costume that came with a Hydra goon. He's perfect to me. The costume is my favorite, the storyline is incredible, the two X-Force teams were great, and this figure is just dead on. I'll never understand why DST didn't continue those claws. Least favorite is probably is the kid version, James Howlett. Just seemed really unnecessary for me. We've gotten a lot of Wolverines, but the one I'm wanting most now is the black suit with yellow trim from when he worked with Maverick. I think that would make the most excellent two-pack. So there's my two cents. Hopefully everyone here agrees that this will liven up the place a bit. Now what do you all think?
  10. Wave 72: Logan's Legacy (?)

    One of my favorite villains, and the minimate that kickstarted my addiction was Omega Red. Ever since then I've wanted a "Hulk Vs." display with Wolverine squared off against Red, Sabretooth, DP, and Lady Deathstrike. Looks like my dream will finally be realized. I love this wave. I love the oddball figures like MODOK and now Mojo. And this one hits me right in the childhood. Sold American.
  11. Wave 68: Giant Size X-Men

    Man, I totally don't remember that. Awesome, nonetheless. Thank you, sir.
  12. Wave 68: Giant Size X-Men

    I've noticed several people add the Secret Invasion Beast to their X-Men line-ups. Although I will always consider Beast to be an X-Man, I have always assumed this look was primarily an Avengers outfit. Is he ever in the comics on this team in this form? Backstory: I'm super particular about my displays.
  13. No boys allowed.

    So today I got both of my Greatest Hits minimates in. After I had them all opened up and displayed, I realized that neither wave has a single female character. To make up for it, what would be your suggestions for an all female minimates series? Personally, I'd like to see: Kate Bishop/Madame Masque Medusa/Kamala Kahn (modern) Rogue/Spiral Hellcat/Typhoid Mary
