  1. I hope you're not suggesting that would keep DST from offering him again, especially given that he was a Toy Fair exclusive.
  2. My takeaway is that Zach drinks mouthwash. You really should spit that out, Zach. Seriously.
  3. Yeah, I'm flashing back to the recent Bobby Drake Debate. I'm all for making lemonade from lemons but don't hand me a glass of warm piss and tell me it's mouthwash... from a certain point of view.
  4. Best of luck landing on your feet!
  5. Batman seems to be an exception to every rule. http://www.minimatedatabase.com/chars.php?i=111&n=Batman
  6. Gladly, so would I, but I'm not picky about my Star Trek. I enjoy it all. I'd rather see something new and different, of course.
  7. I'd settle for the concept approval form from Fox for a dropship.
  8. I was thinking the same thing. This is Petra, not May.
  9. I can see TRU getting that 4-pack and 2-pack while specialty gets a Minuteman 4-pack. It just seems odd that comic shops wouldn't be getting something exclusive since Watchmen is more relevant to DC now than it has been since the film opened. If they're sharing that 4-pack with a big-box retailer that can sell it for $5 or $10 less (again), it's no wonder the Minimates brand is tepid at specialty.
  10. Here's who's featured in the guide: Thor Hulk Hela Valkyrie Grandmaster Skurge Loki Heimdall Keep in mind that these guides are largely apparel-driven and represent what the licensor is pushing in general. It's not impossible that other characters like Odin could show up at retail if demand warranted it but a set featuring two of the Warriors Three seems unlikely. At this point, if I were in charge at DST, I'd be looking for a way to offer all three at once for veterans and newbies alike, perhaps in a 4-pack with an anchor character variant. I can only think of one online retailer who might be interested in offering such a SKU.
  11. For what it's worth, The Warriors Three aren't even in the consumer products style guide this time around.
  12. The trick is to get Toys R Us behind it. If retailers want it, DST will make it. They still have the license, they just need the demand.
  13. With DST's notorious hard-on for everything TOS, I imagine a 4-pack of Trek Minimates commemorating the 30th anniversary of TNG would include Generations Kirk, "Unification" Spock, "Encounter at Farpoint" McCoy, and "Relics" Scotty.
  14. Behold. The X-Men Fiasco.
  15. I really hope this line finds its sea legs. This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what could be offered, even with just this movie.
