  1. So DST has Avatar now and we aren’t getting minimates. Booooo! This is torture! DST now have some of my favs Castlevania, Mortal Kombat, Avatar and we aren’t getting squat! Maybe they can get Hellboy next and not make minimates just to drive me over the edge. 🤯

    wave 79

    Finally a cosmic wave! Yay! 👍 Some of the characters/costumes aren’t what I would have chosen but it’s still good. Definitely need another cosmic wave to finish up the guardians, watcher & gladiator would be nice too.
  3. Panel is at noon PST today hopefully wave 79 will be shown. I wouldn’t hope for anything more than that.
  4. I’m not surprised there’s no minimates for any other DST lines because they don’t have any other licenses, except Castlevania, that could make even one boxset that has a chance of being produced. Rocketeer? Black Hole? No chance too niche. After TMNT, Bruce Lee, Kingdom Hearts and Sonic all died I’m sure they are reluctant to try anything else. Although I believe the Sonic set didn’t do well due to really bad designs (except Robotnik they were ugly) Horrible character selection, along w an ugly Mickey design and the numerous quality issues w Wave 1 doomed Kingdom Hearts. The only positive is Walgreens is still getting new product (that’s a lot of sales) though the animated waves have become weaker (10 & 11) and since they are based on shows which aren’t very popular I wonder how much longer they will last. The lack of product worries me because people will move on without a steady stream. If we are down to 3-4 waves (only 6 plus a BAF) and a couple Walgreens waves per yr how many people will loose interest and what are the chances of bringing in new customers? There’s a Scorpion and Sub-zero bust in the DST display so they have MK in some manner but I wouldn’t bet on minimates being made. Although I’d sure like to be wrong.
  5. I thought DST stopped making sets that were based on current comic events due to low sales.

    wave 79

    Almost every Marvel character has been requested by multiple people here so I’ve got no idea what the wave could be. I’d like a break from spidey/X-men for awhile. If 3 packs per wave means a move to more smaller waves per yr then that’s good in my opinion but if it’s still just 3-4 waves per yr, no comic box sets, etc I can’t see it as anything but bad.
  7. The costumes are slight variations on the MCU-look so I’ve got no desire for them. I’d still buy minimates from the PS4 game. Lots of good villain designs and a bunch of spidey suits that haven’t been made.
  8. Difficult to have a minimate panel when there’s no product to talk about.

    wave 77

    Ehhhh I don’t mind the lack of legs for hydro-man since all kinds of spare legs can be used. I’ll take a BAF figure over some legs and other bits. Now the Miles figure is just straight trash and never should have been made. It’s one of those “WTF DST”decisions they make from time to time.
  10. All animated and movie mates are 40% off at Walgreens until July 27th. They are not marked as clearance. DST’s Kingdom Hearts figures are on sale as well but are marked for clearance.
  11. If it’s a two pack I could see it being Quicksilver/Iceman. 4 pack I’ve got no idea. Hopefully Luke got something that does well for him.
  12. Found these in NJ today. It was not a store that had 0 movie mates but a store that actually had a lot and they got 2 sets. The two stores that had 0 movie mates instead each got in a case of captain marvel that was 2x marvel/korath & 2x fury/Ronan. 🤔 huh?? These definitely suffer from being based on promo materials with hulk’s suit being lavender, the quantum suits being silver and weird decisions by DST such as making Ronin’s sword so tiny (it’s like the tiny katana mold from long ago), Thanos’ sword being really stubby, his helmet missing gold paint on the top and Rocket not having pupils again. If DST hadn’t stubbornly/stupidly decided to not make anymore Endgame minimates (as it keeps raking in the $$$ headed toward being the biggest movie ever) then these wouldn’t be so disappointing since we’d get 2nd versions of characters that would be more accurate. Instead I’ve got an Endgame collection made up mostly of inaccurate Quantum suit figures. Whoop de do. 👎
  13. If this is true then out of the 10 Walgreens around me only 2 have any chance of ever getting new minimates. This is due to Walgreens never clearencing out old product or having any meaningful sales. They have sales on items such as marvel legends and good ones at that all the time. It’s their own mismanagement that has created this situation and is keeping them from selling new product.
  14. Nope and after checking the 10 Walgreens around me the past 3 wks this sure feels like IW wave 2 again. By this time after first sighting Cap Marvel wave was widespread. Stores have plenty of room w most having 0-2 movie mates. I’ve see plenty of Hawkeye Pop, Infamous Iron Man ML and Fortnite exclusives so the stores are getting in new stuff. This along w no new eBay listings in almost 2 wks is not encouraging. Although given how things have been going for minimates this seems appropriate. 😒
  15. Don’t worry it gets worse. Hasbro is doing the same characters and more in their cheap kiddie lines. New Hasbro Endgame figures (spoilers)
