  1. It would be great to see a 3 3/3" line, but I'm going to be really pissed off if I run down a wave of characters to find that I can't get a full crew because the subsequent waves got cancelled.
  2. I collected most of these but was just so overwhelmed by all of the variants and my disappointment that the ST:Generations lines had no articulation. I sold most on ebay, with a few exceptions It's hard to believe those came out 20 years ago. I replaced that collection with the AA/DST 9" characters (s well as BSG.) because there is no comparison in detail, but I have hung onto the 6" First Contact & DS9 figures For reasons that are purely related to my childhood, I have also been recently scooping up the retro cloth figures and bridge set I hated the Playmates toys for the recent Trek movie, but bought them because I wanted the bridge set - which turned out to be another disappointment. Looking forward to more Trek minimates
  3. I remember Thundercats when growing up, but have never been a big fan. That being said, these sets are pretty amazing visualizations of the characters in minimate form and I think they turned out extremely nice and have scooped them up as I can get them
  4. This is amazing (and long overdue) news. Excited to see Enterprise represented, and the Wrath of Khan assortment is amazing. I hope this contines in much the same way we all hope it does. I'd still like to see the Galileo shuttle resurrected - I thought that was a great design converteds into the minimate brand.
  5. I scooped up WD series 2 at a TRU in Northern California a couple days ago. I like the set, but am also a little put off by the fact the "arm meat" doesn't stay on
  6. Star Trek Mirror Mirro 2-pk is came out this week. Nice replicas, though I think these were manufactured by a different company for DST - like the Pike retro figure, the texture of the heads is different. BTW: if you have the ST;TNG set, there was an packagin error when those shipped a few months ago - you can write DST to get the phaser and belt that should have been included.
  7. 1. We never, ever said we were making the rest of the Munsters family (that "maybe" I gave is pretty much the first, and far from official), so it's unfair to call it a tease, let alone a cruel one. The Koach is in the vehicles line, and vehicles only come with one Minimate, usually. I think we may be on record as saying we wanted to follow it up with a Drag-U-La, but we'll see if those 400 Koaches per store sell well. 2. The Mummy boxset fiasco was far from intentional, so I don't think cruel applies there, either. We always intended to make it, and were legitimately disappointed when we couldn't due to a factory mix-up. sar·casm noun \ˈsär-ˌka-zəm\ Definition of SARCASM 1: a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain
  8. Did anyone get the Picard or Borg set that came out a couple months ago?
  9. These are about 8" tall, as were the original Mego (and similar in size to DST's cancelled line of ST, ST;TNG and Stargate figures. We had bunches of the DC guys when I was growing up too, including Batman, Penguin, Joker, Aquaman, Superman, Robin. I noticed the DC remakes' hands are different than I remember, and they don't come with the vinyl gloves anymore - I used to think the Batmobile was great. I'm really disappointed that DST cancelled the Rand and Chapel figures and I'm still hunting for the re-issue Romulan and Khan exclusives
  10. I rounded a lot of that set up at Marshall's for $9.99. Got the TRU exclusive with Janine, slimer and Samhain on clearance for $17.98 at TRU - it comes with a 2-story, firehouse facade out of cardboard. I passed on Twilight zone, though I came close a couple of times
  11. I've been collecting the old Mego-style Star Trek Retro figures and bridge set. Anyone have fond memories of those sets from childhood? These were some of my favorite toys growing up. I'm happy that I was able to get the whole bridge crew now. I also ordered the Mirror Mirror Spock & Kirk set as well as the Star Trek:TNG set with Picard and Borg - hope to see more. Also out are Real Ghostbusters, Planet of the Apes, Six Million Dollar Man, Twilight Zone, Universal Monsters, BSG and, of course, remakes of the old DC superheroes. Anyone else collecting these?
  12. TRU munsters exclusives showed up in Northern California this morning - Hoping the rest of the family isn't just a cruel tease... like the Mummy boxset.
  13. I tried the In-store pickup link and it just froze... Out of stock now - guess I'm going to have to deal with Holiday crowds to track this down.
  14. Only 1 case has showed up at the local TRU so far. I scooped up the last Glen set and an extra Rick set, but the Shane pack was cleaned out. I visited numerous times hoping for a re-stock, with no luck until the Shane set appeared on the shelf. Since the rest of the stock hadn't changed, I can only a ssume that it was re-stocked after being returned or found somewhere else in store. However it happened, At least I'm set on this wave.
  15. I had the same thought after I saw the thread take this turn.... at least I got that set
  16. getting those out for Halloween has become a pipe dream. Thanksgiving anyone?
  17. I got mine as well - I hope we get to fill it with Lily, Grandpa, Eddy & Marilyn some day
  18. I scooped up the TRU exclusives in Northern California thanks to a heads up from Dr. Baghead.
  19. I had the same issue with the adhesive. I had to ditch the decals after a few failed attempts that horribly mangled them.
  20. Maybe the reboot of the Munsters TV series will increase the visibility and desireability of this series.
  21. These showed up in Northern California this wee as well
  22. I would go back to Walmart, Target and TRU and scoop up a couple of the blackbeard/cannon deluxe packs while they are still cheap and available. That's what we did for my son so he could fill up the upper and lower desks with cannons. otherwise, you have to shuffle the one that was included around. The other deluxe packs also integrate into the ship. Its a nice size for Minimates, but if I were to do it, the sails, rigging and paint would need work. Playmobil makes far nicer, close-to-minimate scale ships, though you can't touch the new Lego POTC for detail.
