  1. At this point, no. I think it's just sad to look back in a hindsight and see properties like Iron Man 3 and Age of Ultron get such elaborate assortments and then to compare to the dwindling down we've had recently. Curious what the future may bring with things like the SDCC Avengers pack dropping, but the days of at least something for a film are long gone.
  2. Shoot I always forget about the ORIGINS take on Deadpool 😂
  3. Very true. I'm such a sucker for all the nostalgic moments. Speaking of- any discussion about Loki assortments? TVA agents would be fun army builders
  4. Zach, any chance DST would ever release unused design concepts to the public. For these specifically, but any 'mates that didn't make the final cut? That would be so cool to see. Again, all that makes sense. It's just sad to see DST unable to keep up with the higher capital companies like Hasbro and Funko that crank stuff out so quickly. Or at least that minimates don't get the same treatment and excitement as select figures
  5. Sadly, it makes sense. There would be way too much for them to keep up with at this rate of 4 films and however many D+ series a year, on top of producing comic based assortments. I'd be curious to see sales numbers of MCU waves compared to all comic and walgreens assortments- that would be my final hope that some would still be produced, but it does feel like it's the end of an era.
  6. Yeah was not really the revisiting of past films that I was hoping for- though it is a start and the first retroactive release. Not enough of an update for me to grab this one.
  7. Finishing out falcon and winter soldier really makes me want a Disney+ blind bag series. DST could cover so many characters and looks for all the shows slotted. A man can dream...
  8. Anyone with Skurge from the Ragnarok wave mind comparing the sleeve color to the most recent Zemo's chest if you have both? Trying to see if the purples match up.
  9. Wow I miss those days! So many exclusives, re-released looks, single packs from ULTRON...
  10. What's the DST usual spiel? Never say never? These would be great but sadly I think we'd have seen something by now, especially given how long FATWS sets have been out. And there is no precedence for retroactively making corresponding sets for the films, so I think we're SOL on this one. Bummer. I would still love a generalized "Disney+" assortment to encompass all the series coming our way- just titular characters, new looks, villains, etc. We definitely don't need all the side characters like Darcy, Woo, or even Ralph Bohner. Some are better than none, and sadly I think most of the shows are not going to get anything.
  11. I'm still in the camp of thinking these are fan mock-ups. The character choices seem off for DST, whereas a pack with Wanda and Vision in one of the sitcom era looks seems much more likely. Or if they are late releases, why wouldn't Wanda be in the new costume look the posters have been teasing? I wouldn't be mad at all if these are legit, getting any is better than none, but I'm skeptical.
  12. Oh man, if there was just a general release wave for Disney+ that would be awesome. Much better chance of getting assortment from everything.
  13. Figured I'd start a thread solely for film and Disney+ releases seeing as we won't really go longer than 3 weeks without any new MCU content for the entire year (if these dates are mostly accurate): WandaVision: 1/15 - 2/19 The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: 3/19 - 4/23 Black Widow: 5/7 Loki(probably): 5/21 - 6/25 Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings: 7/9 What If...?: 7/16 - 9/17 Miss Marvel(probably): 9/24 - 10/29 The Eternals: 11/5 Hawkeye(probably): 11/12 - 12/17 Spider-Man 3: 12/17 Obviously we've already gotten two of these releases preemptively, hoping that DST can keep up for all these!
  14. Zach- any reason behind the new shield mold for the Cap 'mates? I didn't really mind it for the Black Widow sets but I'm more just curious as to the change.
  15. Totally missed that, you're right! It's a similar back at least, with the multiple braid look.
  16. Unfortunately it's not the same hood piece. Full shoulder/hood head cap that has an odd point at the top of it. Looks clean just an odd shape. Same hair Ayesha had in Vol. 2 set. Works well for this look though I'm going to trade it out for long hair. Found in Atlanta. These are pretty excellent, and I'm just happy we got an assortment unlike Spidey. I think these were the most logical choices, as the Rachel Weisz character is an easy kitbash, and a white suite Natasha just needs a chest substitution. The only think that bothers me is Taskmaster's lack of accessories but I can't say that's a surprise. Red Guardian is a masterpiece in my opinion. Just confused as to why these showed up with no announcement or reveal. Even for us forum nerds, no word whatsoever until an eBay listing. I think this is the most frustrating part of still collecting these. But anyway. Winter Soldier and Red Guardian look awesome together. Team Soviet!
  17. Granted, customs are not my strong suit, but I really wanted to give battle damaged Vader a go. I tend to stay as purist with minimate parts as I can since I don't know much about molding and painting. Would love any suggestions and tips especially for the mask.
  18. Any suggestions for making the Endgame Ronin a little more posable? Thinking I'll probably just ditch the bulky jacket piece and go with a different torso.
  19. Alright, far from perfect but here's my start on a custom MCU Mysterio. Biggest part is going to be trimming up the cape aaaaaand learning Illustrator to make a decent decal for the chest piece. Thinking I'll switch out arms and legs for the TRU version once I can afford it. Need green hands too!
  20. I'd switch a couple of those out for Elementals maybe, but throw in some great accessories with civilian 'mates and that's a done deal. My best case scenario would be a retconned boxset with Mysterio, stealth suit, upgraded suit, and MJ. Ned isn't a necessity for me, though I certainly wouldn't mind him!
  21. Alright this has been bothering me long enough- anyone have good ideas for Mysterio? I think I'm really only struggling with what to use for a chest piece. Everything else more or less is doable with the past comic Mysterios
  22. Yep! Just cut straight across at the base on each side for one of them, cut the other about halfway down the blade, and then glue the longer tips onto the longer bases.
  23. The two swords works out to any customizer's favor- quick combo makes for a pretty perfect size and a much less "chunky" look. Just needs some paint over the seam.
  24. I actually felt the opposite!! War Machine looks great for what he was, but Ronin suffers a bit from the bulky jacket. Would have loved for him to only have a printed chest. I think Thanos suffers a bit too from over-bulking. Not much pose-ablity in either but still great looking figures. These were well worth the wait!!
