  1. If it’s TV show related no idea who it could be. If it’s a comic character I’m hoping for Kwinn or Dr Venom.
  2. Wasn’t a Joe then it had to be Hasbro wanting Crystal Ball removed from the pack and replaced w Raptor.😬
  3. Most of the D+ shows really only have one/two characters that would make good minimates. The rest would be boring civilians. A variety 6-pack once/twice a year with costumed heroes/villains would be good way to release them.
  4. Please bring back those 87 cartoon minimates. They were so well done and there’s lots more retro/87 TMNT product then 5 yrs ago. Interest seems higher now.
  5. I like the new boxset design and I’m ok w the $50 price. Hopefully this does well and we can get back to a consistent flow of Marvel minimates. The whole 1-2 waves per year doesn’t come off as a line that’s doing well. 3-4 big box sets w a few 4packs per year sure would be nice.
  6. Zach stated the SDCC exclusive announcement got bumped from Dec so the Jan announcement is probably them. They will be in fancier packaging so that will result in higher prices. As for the license announcement who knows there’s so much stuff out there. Just hoping it’s something good.
  7. I’m just confused as to why DST has the new box set listed at $29.99 on their own online store. Is it an error or should we all just buy direct and save some money?
  8. Ouch that’s a big price increase. The power rangers/transformers 4packs are $30. This packaging design is nice but for an additional $10 I’d expect the packaging to be resealable (both the box and each card).
  9. Got the 1st box set today and they are quite nice. Packaging is very sharp as well. I did find that Optimus looks better with Bee’s face underneath the helmet. The eyes are better proportioned and it gives him his nose ridge. I’m curious why they changed from animation colors to metallics. Did hasbro demand the change or did DST change it? Either way is fine with me as long as it’s consistent.
  10. The Deadpool set is very nice and I’m sure will sell well. The Logan set is a total dud. With all the other movie choices or even another Deadpool movie set (Colossus, Cable, Domino, grey/dirty Deadpool) would be more interesting than two civilian mates. Those civilian Logan sets from The Wolverine were huge peg warmers.
  11. I agree 100%. However, Hasbro is making unmade characters and filling in the gaps. Give me some movie-mates of characters/costumes that haven’t been made and I’m all in. Even if they are packed w some re-releases.
  12. I’m assuming DST’s target audience for this set is new collectors because 6 minimates from 9 yrs ago (w very minor tweaks) for $40 is not appealing at all. Especially w all the umade goodness from Endgame.
  13. Yes GIJOE minimates. Will gladly buy everyone DST releases. Remember DST GIJOE is perfect for army builders. Any Cobra trooper collectors will want multiples.
  14. Big transformers collector here (masterpiece, kreons, etc) and these are....weird. Some transformer designs will work in this style really well, others won’t. I’m shocked DST is making them due to the amount of tooling required and not a lot of reuse. I can see why DST is excited though it’s a huge license with so many possibilities for minimates and more. If GIJOE and Power Rangers are possible for minimates then I’m begging DST to make them. They are much more minimate-friendly and I’d love to have a big collection of both.
  15. Falcon and Winter Soldier minimates finally made it to the east coast. Other than the sets being light on accessories (Bucky & Zemo need some guns) these are really nice.
  16. Thread necro. DST gets to make SW figs now. Will it lead to Minimates? 99% sure it will not but one can only hope. http://thefwoosh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=93493&sid=5cb70fe6a6a194f18a08e6188a97f0b6
  17. Any new movie mates that fill in gaps like Endgame Cap, Endgame Thor, Rescue, Korg, or movies that weren’t done before (Deadpool, Far from Home) would be welcome additions. As long as they aren’t re-releases I’m all in for more movie mates.
  18. Went searching today and found the Avengers game mates at one store. They rang up as “Avengers BC” Minimates so they aren’t under the movie or animated SKU. Hopefully these are a trial for a new reoccurring series. Some PS4 Spidey and non-big 5 Avengers from the new game would be welcome. Also found the Miles/Prowler from Animated Series 12. No sign of Ghost/Iron Man. The Miles/Prowler pack is....ok. It’s Miles in a very very slightly different style. Prowler is a bad design and a boring figure, but it’s screen accurate. Animated series definitely feels like it’s scraping the bottom of the barrel the past few series. Switching to the X-Men Animated show is welcome change. Wish we knew what the lineup was and had some pics.
  19. It’s been quite obvious for a while DST can’t/won’t change with the times and modernize.
  20. These are nice for what they are but the Avengers game designs are boring AF. The ugly cap design does look a lot better as a Minimate so kudos to DST. I’ll still buy them to support the line but not announcing/promoting them before the game was released and using the hype to try and get some minimate interest going is disappointing.
  21. Very nice a definite buy. Nice to see a lot of accessories/extra parts.
  22. Now we’re talkin DST! Wave 80 & 81 are great. As long as the accessories stay at a high amount I’ve got no issues w the BAF going away. Hopefully with two waves being shown at once we are going to have more releases per year.
  23. Decided to make a custom Spidey & Mysterio Far From Home minimates since we’ll never get any. Spidey is made from parts of Homecoming & Superior with some paint. Mysterio’s helmet & blasts are from two different bootleg LEGO minifig. Chest armor is a modified Penance chest piece.
  24. The new LEGO Vader helmet is oversized and there’s a new bootleg LEGO Vader w the large helmet and sculpted torso control panel. They might fit w minimate scale. Just search eBay or aliexpress they are all over for a couple bucks.
  25. Even though it doesn’t change the situation I do find it cathartic there are others here who don’t think DST has been doing a good job and offer real-life examples/corrective actions. Will it change anything? Probably not, but it’s slightly comforting that there are others who will not go gentle into that good night but will rage, rage against the dying of minimates.
