    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    If Netflix really wanted to "delay the rights" out of spite, they wouldn't have canceled these shows. They'd have held on to them for as long as possible without producing any new episodes. But their relationship with Disney is nothing like Fox's was with Marvel. There's no reason for Netflix to delay the inevitable. On the off chance that Disney+ doesn't work out, it's best not to burn that bridge.

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    I'm only lacking Series 9 but patience has usually paid off. With so many stores it should be quite a while before that particular wave is actually sold out. Glad you got yours, BHM. They're awfully colorful, aren't they?

    Minimate Holiday Card Contest

    I'm ashamed to admit I work in the greeting card industry and haven't entered.

    Where did everybody go?

    Men in Black would be a terrific license for Minimates. 😎

    Where did everybody go?

    Yes, a BHM 'mate with cases and cases of Minimates. 😁 As much as I'd love to see that, Ivan deserves a 'mate for maintaining the database. If DST isn't already subsidizing that resource already, they should. Not sure what their in-house database looks like but I suspect they use Ivan's quite a bit.

    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    The second season of Punisher is hitting in January. I'm expecting its cancellation soon after. Not sure when Jessica Jones will air but it'd be great if they used her third season to wrap up Netflix's Marvel shows.

    Predator Minimates

    Yeah, that Assassin Predator would make a great BAF for the next assortment.

    Where did everybody go?

    Agreed. Besides, the Bombermate was specific to the iconography of the Art Asylum message board, as I recall. This board deserves its own.

    DC Vinimates

    Dang. I may need that Darkseid.

    Battle Beasts Minimates

    Yeah, it would have gone great with that Robin-esque Minimate that got cancelled.

    "Avengers: Endgame" Minimates

    The good news is that there are alternate looks for the main characters. Every retailer wants to offer Iron Man, Hulk, Cap, et al. That usually leads to overlap; TRU and Walgreens would share a couple 2-packs and a Specialty box set only gets two unique figures. This time around, Walgreens could get its own set of Avengers while Specialty could get a full assortment as well and none of the figures would need to be shared. Walgreens could offer Tech Suit Iron Man while Specialty could get the Nanotech Iron Man with accessories. And the Walgreens assortment could get alternate parts to make other characters to help ensure multiple purchases and drive sell-through.

    "Avengers: Endgame" Minimates

    That's pretty agressive for a brand that's still down one significant retailer. Walgreens has plenty of stores but will their sell-through on Infinity War justify so many SKUs? And will Specialty take two 4-packs even without TRU as competition? I hope so.

    "Avengers: Endgame" Minimates

    I was hopeful DST would offer another Iron Man with all the cool nanotech accessories this time around. Not getting my hopes up. A giant Thanos BAF would be terrific, though.
  14. The trailer's out so I figured this would be a good time for a dedicated thread. I'm wondering if DST will be pulling another Marvel Series 60 based on some previously leaked pics of Hasbro's line. Common uniforms and alternate parts could allow for extra characters within each 2-pack.
