  1. 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?
  2. “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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I too am curious about when this wave will be released.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. I dig these. Sold. Please, PLEASE keep the modern characters/costumes coming.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I’ve been reading the HoX/PoX and Dawn of X titles as they’ve been added to Marvel Unlimited and I can’t recommend them enough. These are the comics I expect to read in 2020. There are some genuinely new and fresh stories going on here and some truly progressive ideas that don’t come across as pandering or heavy-handed (to me). With that said, I think Xavier, white suit Magneto, ponytail Storm, and blue suit Cyclops are absolute musts. But there are SO many other awesome possibilities: Kate Pryde (with red scarf and additional broken nose head) and Lockheed Apocalypse in a suit Wolverine (updated brown suit) Cable (young) Beast (for the love of mates, we don’t have a good modern Beast) Emma Frost (white suit) Magik (black costume) Jeez. I could go on and on. Modern mutants have really gotten the shaft since that ordeal with Fox.
  14. Are you implying that Age of X box set wasn’t at the top of everyone’s wish list? /s
  15. Yes please. The “film” and “cinema” snobbery are getting unbearable.
  16. With the big resurgence of X characters, what Dawn of X minimates would you like to see get made? The brown-suit Wolverine and Marvel Girl Jean Grey we have are a pretty good start. Personally, I’d also like to see: Xavier and Cyclops Beast and Storm Magik and white-suit Magneto young Cable and Kitty Pryde
  17. Thanks for the compliments dudes! Unfortunately, there's no recipe here. Just my first shot at painting a regular Nightcrawler minimate with some details added with a Gundam marker.
  18. Just a heads up. I was goofing around tonight and managed a pretty decent QC MCU Mysterio. No painting! Wave 71 Mysterio, Red King chest block, space suit Wolverine boots and belt. I also added the Prototype Suit Miles Morales head to MCU Shocker to give him a more costumed look. Enjoy!
  19. Spotted in Kentucky. I gotta say, the minimates themselves looks fantastic. I'm happy to add Taskmaster to my collection. However, these new shields are awful. For those of you who haven't gotten the sets, DST has replaced the peg and hole shields we know and (I assume) love with an L shaped handle on the back of the shield that the minimate hands hold. At first I thought I was being nitpicky, but the handle is huge and keeps popping out of my minimate's hands. I also feel like it limits posing without looking silly. Did this change really save that much money? I don't feel like it's worth it at all. Also, Taskmaster's hood/shoulder pad combo kind of limits such a dynamic character's posing options too. Just a thought.
  20. As soon as I saw that piece I started thinking about which character was gonna get it. Reed may be the one. Genius!
  21. Yeah, I just don’t really like preordering. Most of the time I’m good with money, but I don’t like buying something and having the money drafted from my account at a random far off time in the future when I have no idea what my financial status may be. I just had to pay off a vehicle and buy a new one unexpectedly and it left me living paycheck to paycheck for a couple weeks. Having $30 pulled out because DST decided to randomly ship figures is a “no” from me, dawg.
  22. Are we gonna see any of the Black Widow movie minimates?
  23. Wow. I never thought I’d get a Corsair minimate. Incredible work. The whole wave looks awesome. So this wave will have a Shi’ar army builder exclusive for Luke’s Toy Store, right? =P
