  1. This had me thinking what were the last non-marvel minimate releases? See below for a recent history of non-Marvel minimate releases: KH Light Cycle - Feb. 13, 2019 The Predator Box Set - Nov. 21, 2018 NBX Halloween Town Box Set - Oct. 31, 2018 BB NYCC 2018 Desmodius - Oct. 4, 2018 KH Wave 2 - August 1, 2018 KH Wave 1 - May 30, 2018 Aliens Series 4 - May 16, 2018 NBX TRU Series 5 - Nov. 16, 2017 NBX Series 5 - Nov. 8, 2017 Elf Box Set - Nov. 8, 2017 Beetlejuice TRU Series 1 - Nov. 4, 2017 Predator TRU Series 5 - Nov. 3, 2017 Beetlejuice Box Set 1 - Oct. 18, 2017 2017 was the last year we had a real plethora of non-Marvel minimates with 25 releases (box sets, regular waves, and TRU waves each counted as 1), 2 of which were promotional releases. 2018 brought only 6 releases, 1 of them being promotional and from a line that hadn't had a release since 2013. 2019 brought only 1 release and from a license that didn't have enough interest/sales to achieve a 3rd wave at retail. And as for 2020, it's brought not a single whiff of non-marvel minimates outside of a couple of box sets that also failed to achieve enough interest to be made. It's staggering to see the drop-off in the last 3 years, but at this point it can't drop off anymore. Here's hoping DST can find a profitable license for minimates that can last longer than a single wave or box set, or even just something that gathers enough interest to be released.
  2. I know it was all the way back in 2014 when Disney acquired Star Wars, and transferred the comic license to Marvel but there's still some salt left in the wound from that one. Dark Horse made some truly brilliant Star Wars comics back in the day, and even as good as some of the newer Marvel runs have been, to me it still doesn't quite stack up. Maybe it's just nostalgia talking
  3. I'd argue that's because we've already discussed to great lengths what licenses we'd like to see, and having done so several times, repeating those hasn't made minimates of them appear. When there hasn't been anything outside of Marvel to be excited about in terms of product announcements I think it's difficult to spark discussion on toys many believe will never be made. I get excited fantasizing about licenses and products that I think have the possibility to actually be produced; I'm losing that excitement, especially with no new licenses on the horizon.
  4. Hmm, I could see it being N'astirh. One of the demons that helped catalyze the events of Inferno, and he has some resemblance in the face to Beta Ray Bill. Edit: Some of other possibilities to throw out there besides S'ym and Belasco; Azazel (comic incarnation), and Darkchylde(? not sure if she counts since it is kind of just the alter ego of Ilyana)
  5. I've heard it goes away after 11 or so lives.
  6. So, possibly Warstar, but that seems like it would be a lot of parts to paint. So more likely Hobgoblin?
  7. No problem. Been collecting the Halo line since it was first releasing. I'm still missing quite a bit, though I have all the named characters.
  8. There's a Spartain ODST in the single packs, a Spartan CQB in TRU Series 3, a Spartan Rogue in the Series 2 Box Set, and a Spartan Scout in TRU Series 2. I personally only own the Scout and the Rogue in that color and they match almost spot on.
  9. Ah, so what we really should be asking is what Zach doesn't want; maybe we'll get that
  10. It's crazy that we can get an 8 figure wave for a backup story, but nothing so far from probably the most widely adored X-Men event since what? Maybe Schism? Maybe Messiah Complex? Maybe the early 90's? HoX - PoX - DoX has been some of the better quality stuff coming out of Marvel in the past few years; throw some minimates at it DST!
  11. Makes me think this could be Juggernaut (the prior minimate of which has long eluded me)
  12. I was wondering the same thing; a lot of options with this property for long-needed re-dos of villains, plus a long list of completely new villains.
  13. Completely agree with this sentiment
  14. Yea, I have no expectations, just rampant speculation in the smallest hopes that maybe DST will make non-Marvel minimates of a theme I'm a huge fan of
