    DC Vinimates

    The Prez poster caught my eye, too. I meant to go back and check the others. 🤓 I'm not a huge fan of the show but, come on, the Seven Soldiers of Victory? That was awesome. "Robin Hood." Gotta love that multiverse!

    DC Vinimates

    Watching Stargirl (RIP DCU) I noticed a clock with a giant "S" on its face on the wall of Pat's garage. It reminded me of The Iron Giant's borrowed "Superman" crest. But I'm sure Pat's "S" is for STRIPE. 😉 It's all one big, happy WB family, right?
  3. DST has never held the DC license for Minimates. As a division of TimeWarner, DC Direct never needed a license to make any of its DC collectibles. They tried making it happen but the 2-packs were too expensive ($2 more than Marvel's MSRP) and the release schedule was very tight due to the factory scheduling. (The first three assortments were released a month apart.) DC Direct wasn't the problem. DC's licensing has been handled by Warner Bros. Consumer Products for over a decade, maybe more, as I recall. It's up to someone there to recognize the value of a toy line that could last as long as Marvel's line of Minimates has, especially without the same restrictions. Imagine a DC Minimates line that allows for vehicles and playsets that incorporate the same mix & match play pattern as the figures. Picture MAX but with a Batwing and Blue Beetle's Bug and Superman's Kryptonian ship and Luthor's battle suit. Get Todd and Mezco out of the way and give retailers something to get excited about. Hasbro's bringing back MicroMachines. Maybe wee is back.
  4. Such a gut punch, especially after personally experiencing something similar last year. My thoughts go out to the folks who are suddenly out of work in a year that's already challenging in so many ways.
  5. My wife is part of the same cottage industry. Stay healthy, folks.
  6. Then again, after how Gotham was handled, I have little faith we'd ever see most of the characters we'd like to. (Still bitter about a lack of Riddler, Penguin, Firefly, Fish, Joker, Grundy, Zsasz, Ivy, Mad Hatter, Scarecrow, Bane, Ra's, BATMAN...)
  7. Star Trek: Prodigy has a director/co-executive producer/creative lead. After seeing his work on Codehunters (which predates Borderlands, by the way), I'm really looking forward to the look of this new series.
  8. If they're anything like the other animated offerings, this assortment will essentially be a "Best of/Greatest Hits" wave for X-Men in terms of style. No metallic colors. (IE - yellow, not gold)

    I'll admit to getting repeated use out of the amount of lube that came out of Quill's helmet and leave it at that. DST may need to change its marketing strategy. I know a search for "minimates" in the Walgreens.com search engine once lead to personal massagers.
  10. Here you go. I've never been a fan of Harley but, yeah, anything that gets us more DC Minimates is welcome in my collection.
  11. Brilliant! Looks like we might need an animation forum. Keep it coming, kids!
  12. The Sin City Minimates leap to mind. The problem is Nancy's arms have some printing but you might be able to cover them up with gauntlets. Otherwise they might be too grey.
  13. No apology necessary. I love random factoids. 😎 👍
  14. I wasn't sure if we were talking about Select figures or Minimates.
  15. "Trek figures"? How long ago was that?
