  1. Hmmm... Green Arrow (Hawkeye) Atom (Ant-Man) Captain Marvel (Thor) Superman (Captain America) Batman (Iron Man) Red Tornado (Vision) Flash (Quicksilver) Zatanna (Scarlet Witch) Wonder Woman (Black Widow) Hulk has me stumped.
  2. Rupert Thorne is the only one I see having a decent shot because of the sheer number of episodes he was in. He could be the accessory to a villain he hires. I do like the Harvey Dent idea, though I was hoping he'd get an Expressions Pack.
  3. I was thinking Batwoman would be a good choice given their relationship in the comics but Renee wasn't in Mystery of the Batwoman. Pairing her with a villain might work. Clock King and Rupert Thorne both leap to mind because they haven't been done but DCC would probably want a safer bet like Harley disguised as a cop.
  4. That would make an interesting Minimate. I'm picturing a translucent standard body with a skeleton printed on it but with translucent parts to add girth and mass.
  5. Who are the lovable morons of the MCU/616?
  6. That makes me 80% happy. I'm hoping they get around to re-releasing Montoya with someone else. I'm a little concerned about what the new paint apps will be for the others. I doubt they'll be as zany as Kenner's old variants. Hopefully corrected versions.
  7. That makes sense. Just trying to wrap my head around it from an engineering POV. I wonder how much trial and error went into this. It looks terrific!
  8. It’s my understanding that the rigid plastic used on action figure bodies is ABS. The more flexible plastic used on arms, legs, and heads is PVC. If this Maximate is only made of one rigid material, I’m wondering how the ball joints fit into the sockets.
  9. The mechanics, sure, but the materials? PVC?
  10. Are the balls rubber? I'm trying to figure out how the ball sockets are articulated. In order to hold in place, there needs to be some amount of surface tension inside that joint.
  11. What if... I hadn't?! 😲 The big deal with these new Disney+ Marvel shows seems to be that they're coming directly from Marvel Studios, not ABC. IE - bigger budgets, no network constraints, obviously the same faces (and many voices) from the MCU.
  12. Marvel Studios is doing a What If...? animated series for Disney+.
  13. That's not a bad idea for fudging a QC. And honestly, if DST gave us Star Trek EVA suits, I'm the type of collector who'd buy multiples either to outfit an entire Away Team or just put them into lockers in the background of a staging area. I've lost count of how many EVA suits I've got from Alien.
  14. As much as I love those EV suits, the transporter effect that Playmates did was brilliant. Same tooling, translucent plastic with metal flakes, and light-up bases with sound FX. I wouldn't expect that from DST for Minimates but it seems like the translucent plastic and transporter pad bases would be pretty easy. Put them in packaging that looks like the transporter room and you've got something a lot more interesting than another assortment of the same TOS characters.
  15. This 10-pack thread reminded me of an idea for the Trek line I had four years ago. Imagine packaging that looked like the transporter room and stands that looked like transporter pads. Any era.
  16. If DST had wanted to put forth a modicum of effort, this is how they could have refreshed the same old TOS Minimates they tried (and failed) to lure retailers with. Beam this up, Chuck.
  17. It's a surprise. I'm pretty sure we'll know it when we see it. If we ever see it...
  18. They're not in Scranton. I just checked this morning.
  19. Well, Natasha was incognito after Civil War.
  20. After reading horror stories about damaged boxes, missing Yak Face figures, and random broken parts, I finally opened my Khetanna last night with the help of one of my barge buddies at work. No pics yet but it's pretty impressive. I can't imagine anything like this being available back in 1983 (the GI Joe USS Flagg comes close) so it's pretty special. It's a great choice not only because it's a vehicle and a playset but because it allows you to display almost all the main characters and dozens of Jabba's denizens. It came triple-boxed, which I was not expecting. My carded Yak Face is unpunched and unmarked unlike others that have circular indentations in the upper left corner. There are no missing parts that I can see. I'll be test fitting parts soon. Right now it's kind of on display at work but it makes me nervous. Even though it's in a low-traffic location, it's already gotten some attention. Fortunately my boss hasn't said anything yet. Once it's home I'll be able to enjoy it.
  21. If that were Sentinel-shaped, I'd lose my shit.
