    DC Vinimates

    Will DC’s decision impact licensed product? https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/dc-cuts-ties-diamond-comic-distribution-1297309

    wave 79

    Okay, what did I miss? Did Britney shave her head again? Does Michael Jackson have a new album? Is that why everyone's wearing a mask? I'm a little behind...

    wave 79

    I'm wondering if any of these figures have significant alternate looks.
  4. MAX needs to be part of a robust Minimates product line. The licensed product can get the retailer's attention. MAX can complement it with vehicles and maybe even playsets. Acquiring a license or two that would allow for both figures AND vehicles would be ideal. Personally, I've wanted to see a sci-fi Max line for years. Concepts from ten years ago could be repurposed.
  5. Target works for me. Does anyone want to second the motion?
  6. Gotta get a retailer interested. Let's pick one and spam their inbox.
  7. Darkseid was part of the C3 line, which was a DC license under the purview of Chuck at DST, who notoriously objects to using multiple body sizes. Ares, Bane, Brainiac 13, et al were manufactured by DST as a third party for DC Direct. Technically there was no license agreement between the companies so DC Direct got what they asked for. I'm pretty certain that if the DCD line had continued to include Darkseid, we'd have gotten him on a 2.5" body.
  8. There's a thread for things compatible with Minimates. Check out Hasbro's Milano here. Not sure about LEGO.
  9. I'm gonna just keep recycling this thread. All the kids are doing it, right? Enjoy your day, Zach. 🤓👍
  10. I do not but I imagine Pike Minimates will be a bit more sought after now that he's getting his own show. Good hunting!
  11. This is MY Trek. To me, Star Trek is all in the mission statement; "Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before!" The movies were a cash-grab from the start thanks to the success of Star Wars. As much fun as it was to see the original crew reunited after ten years, it should have happened on TV where it began. TNG was a step in the right direction; new cast, new crew, new era, same mission aboard another Enterprise. I love DS9 but it's anti-Trek. Instead of VOY, the studio should have written off any TNG cast members who were too expensive to keep, promote others, and move forward. ENT was an opportunity to do a reimagining with the same cast playing the classic crew with a twist, similar to Battlestar Galactica. As much as I'm enjoying Discovery, I still wanted a series that takes place aboard the Enterprise. Strange New Worlds is it. Now give me some Minimates to go with it.
  12. I was just coming here to post almost the exact same thing. But we don't want any more TOS-era product, right? That stuff is old. DST wouldn't be interested in that anyway. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. I'll be there.
  13. I'd still like TMNT 'mates from the original film.
  14. Glad you were able to snatch them. It's a cool little toy. If your only interest is army-building, you can always beat up your own clean APCs, of course. The deco on the official "battle-damaged" version is pretty uninspiring. They just sponged mud on it, as I recall. As a completist, I bought a couple clean ones just to have two Gormans (alternate noggins!) and the dirty one for the Ripley with the ever-so-slightly changed facial expression. Someday I may get around to giving that extra clean APC some proper battle-damage.
