  1. I love that NECA is just rolling in cash right now because of the retro TMNT love, but DST couldn’t get it together long enough to test the waters. If I remember correctly, these were announced way ahead of the TMNT hype bubble that we’re in right now and all the current pops, figures, etc. flies off the shelves. I feel like DST is always looking for “the next big license” that will introduce new customers to the line and… well… this was it.
  2. Sounds like by the time these are bought, shipped from the UK, and then shipped again to their new forever homes, they’ll cost almost as much as the other new minimates going forward.
  3. It really does suck missing some of the MCU’s new characters who are easily some of my favorites. Kate, Maya, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Wenwu, Xialing, Monica, Agatha, Sylvie, Mobius, Kang… Plus updated costumes for Loki, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Clint, Sam, and Spider-Man. Not to mention a second chance at some returning faces from No Way Home. At least (most of) these characters are guaranteed to show up again, so hopefully there’s future releases. Anybody have any decent quick custom recipes?
  4. “Different” being the key word here. Plus, those were all released at the same time so that consumers could purchase what that they liked best. They didn’t release a product, wait for consumers to purchase that product, then release new product packaged with the original product for consumers to purchase a second time.
  5. Those are all single packed. So, collectors can just choose which one they want and ignore the rest. They don’t have to buy the same figure twice to get new figures.
  6. This is so stupid it’s almost painful. So there was a FCBD set that was obviously planned for May (since that is when FCBD was). I’ve had this set preordered for months. And now I’m supposed to get excited to buy all four of those same figures a second time if I want Duke, Baroness, Destro, etc.? DST has got to be the worst toy company.
  7. By the time this wave releases, it will have been almost a year since the previous wave. Anyone else feel like minimates is the only line that had an enormous delay due to COVID? Hasbro has been snatching up all my retail therapy bucks during lockdown. I feel like DST really dropped the ball on this one.
  8. I too am curious about when this wave will be released.
  9. It is not at all what I wanted or expected, but it’s a blast. I get how it can be over the top for people who were expecting something along the lines of Batman: The Animated Series or Young Justice though. DC has cranked out “dark and serious” stuff over and over again. This is a welcome breath of fresh air for me.
  10. I just finished both seasons of Harley Quinn on HBO Max and I gotta say, this show is perfect for the Minimates treatment. There are tons of unique characters and costumes. There’s a solid mix of “A-list” characters and “C/D-listers”. It seems to have a large cult following that is still growing. Harley Quinn as a character has her own cult following. No other toy lines have released product for this show. And mostly, it’s another chance to get some new DC Minimates (similar to the Gotham show). Harley has at least 3-4 different costumes. The supporting characters are amazing. The entire Justice League and bat-rogues galley is in it. I can see several different series just from two seasons. Harley Quinn and Killer Shark. Poison Ivy and Kite Man. Harleen Quinzel and Joker. Batman and Clayface. Dr. Psycho and Wonder Woman. Harley Quinn (OG costume) and Riddler. Sy Borgman and Frank. Queen of Fables and Superman. Commissioner Gordon and Batgirl. Catwoman and Bane. Two-Face and Scarecrow. Aquaman and bathing suit Harley. Darkseid and super powered Harley. This list goes on and on.
  11. I’d also like to add that releasing a GotG wave, then Guardian in a follow-up X-Men wave, and black Silver Surfer in a follow-up Fantastic Four wave isn’t a bad idea. Can we do Beta Ray and a newer Thor costume and wave next?
  12. I dig these. Sold. Please, PLEASE keep the modern characters/costumes coming.
  13. I hadn’t thought of that. Unfortunately the ML Sentinels don’t ship for another year. But hey, I’ve already got a dozen or so Minimate sentinels to hold me over until then.
  14. I bought three. They’re intended for display with my Marvel Legends, but I’m sure I’ll set up some Minimates around them at some point just for giggles. Those things are massive.
