    wave 79

    Didn’t the cost of a two-pack go up to $10 too though?

    wave 79

    This line-up really suffers from the missing two-pack. A Groot, Beta Ray, or Gladiator really would have tipped the scales in this wave’s favor, in my opinion.
  4. How come everyone gets Venomized and no one gets Carnage-ized?
  5. Capullo X-Force, Kyle/Yost X-Force, Uncanny X-Force, Uncanny Avengers (two separate line-ups), Bendis Uncanny X-Men, ANAD X-Men, and Phoenix Five are all unfinished. No Beast, Namor, Danger, Magik, Pixie, or Armor from newer X line-ups. No Future Foundation Doom or any other of their members. Avengers are missing modern costume updates for heavy hitters like Dr. Strange and Black Panther. I know it seems like nitpicking, but think about how many of these characters are popular and how many of them have now been around for years with no other toy versions. I think DST taking a chance on these characters might act as a gateway for new collectors who buy a favorite new character that isn’t available in other toy lines. But like I said before, I know they’ve tried this before, so maybe it doesn’t work out how I think it would.
  6. I actually want to add that not finishing teams, to me, is a HUGE drawback of every toy line. DST has an awesome opportunity to release 6-8 figures in a series with BAF. That is huge potential for full teams and possibly a villain or two.
  7. I just think they need to do a better job of releasing product related to other popular comics events. Marvel has now released Damnation, War of Realms, Secret Empire, Spider-Verse, and Venomverse events with no coinciding minimates. I think having event-specific minimates on the shelves in LCS for six months while the single issues are being released is an awesome marketing strategy for impulse buys. I know this has been tried before though, so maybe it doesn’t work out like I imagine. Still I think DST producing one-off event specific costumes or costume updates and new characters are often what sets them apart from Marvel Legends and similar toy lines. JUST PLEASE GIVE ME GOD DOOM AND THE REST OF THE PHOENIX FIVE.

    wave 79

    I think (and hope) we’re getting a supernatural wave. It would line up with the Ghost Rider Hulu stuff and Dr. Strange 2 hype. Magik, Dormammu or Mephisto could be the second version in 10 years. Dr. Strange and Ghost Rider could use redos. Loki could also use a redo. That just leaves the new characters. Daimon Hellstrom, Brother Voodoo, Vengeance, Blackheart, etc. My fingers are crossed for: modern Dr. Strange/modern Loki modern Magik/Daimon Hellstrom Ghost Rider/Brother Voodoo BAF Blackheart
  9. I love the idea of RPG minimates. DST will never go for it though. Not enough men in business suits. Haha. But seriously, the non-humanoid and larger scale monsters could be a serious problem. And other than the fairly recent Mojo minimate, DST has been falling kind of short in the ingenuity department.
  10. I would have loved more Invincible and other Image characters, although I’m assuming those just didn’t sell well. Indie comics in general just have so many great characters that don’t have any figures from any other brand. And a ton of them are crossing over into movies and tv now. I really think that’s where minimates could have struck gold.
  11. I just want DST to know that I don’t like this method of packaging the waves. I don’t wish them any ill will. I’m not insulting anyone. But MAYBE the next time they are discussing how to package the wave, someone MIGHT say “Yeah, some people don’t like it when we do it that way”. And that’s all I ask. I don’t know if you’ve realized this, but the way they packaged these figures forces me to spend double on a single team that I want and I end up with a handful of figures that I don’t want. I was not planning on buying the set. With that said, I’m a sucker for army building and @luke314pi exclusive set changed my mind because I want to support the army builder two pack idea. The wave looks great. I love minimates. I’m happy for X-Factor fans. But I still think it’s a shitty marketing decision. And considering several people share my opinion and are talking about it, it obviously adds something to the conversation.
  12. I’ve never read X-Factor, but I bought a set with the Multiple Man pack to support the army builder exclusive. Such a great idea. I didn’t go overboard, but I may buy more in the future if there are any left over.
  13. Complaining about complaining is still complaining. And just because someone’s opinion isn’t positive does not mean that it isn’t valid
