  1. 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.

    "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.

    wave 77

    I'm east coast and still haven't seen Animated Series 9 at my stores. Walgreens should just put them online.

    Kingdom Hearts

    If only there were more Disney Store locations. Like, 4,000 more...

    They could solicit but anything public would end up being a silhouette. The text would end up looking like Robert Mueller's sentencing memo for Michael Flynn.

    wave 77

    All I know is that there looks like there's going to be quite a lull in Marvel Minimates releases based on the latest shipping schedule.

    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    That's fine. I have Hulu. 😎 It'll be interesting to see where Disney puts these kinds of shows. The MCU is PG-13 but it's not like they have nudity or F-bombs even though it's allowed by the MPAA. The Netflix series definitely fall into the R/mature audiences category. I wouldn't be surprised if, eventually, Marvel has its own streaming service like DC Universe.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Any overlap of figures? (Figures, not characters.)
  10. With TRU out of the picture and no one to replace them yet, I was wondering if we could see an increase in the MSRP. The factory might be counting on a certain number of units per year to keep costs low on materials. If DST can't move the same quantities, manufacturing could cost more. Add in the rise in fuel costs toward shipping expenses and we may be looking at another price hike. What's your threshold for a 2-pack of 2-inch plastic crack? Personally I don't want to see it go higher than what it already is ($9.99) but if it's the difference between keeping the line going or letting it die...

    Predator Minimates

    Without TRU, we might have to settle for 4-packs at specialty. That probably means no more legacy assortments with mixed source material. I don’t think DST would offer one SKU that includes characters from multiples films and comics Worst case, yeah, they can’t find interested retailers and it’s over. ☹️
  12. I have zero interest in the game and hate blind bags. However, these were some of my favorite designs. They make great background characters for Guardians of the Galaxy. If DST makes more, I’m there. 👍

    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    “Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix..." Those last two words are critical. I won’t be surprised when all the Netflix Marvel shows end up on Disney+.

    Minimates price hike?

    Agreed. I can justify the price of the 4-pack given the lower production numbers but, please, give me four figures unique to the set.

    Kingdom Hearts

    I'd gladly take a proper assortment of Tron Minimates, from either film. I've been hesitant to pick up the Kingdom Hearts versions.

    TRU Series 26

    This assortment is 30% off for Cyber Monday Week. If you haven't ordered it or want more, get it before the sales ends this Saturday!

    BC Avengers Wave

    Has this series sold through at everyone else's stores? Mine put out two cases each all at once and they're all gone! I'm shocked that a comic-based assortment sold through here so quickly. Still no Animated Series 9, though.

    TRU Series 26

    Same here. I cringe every time I see a video review of someone manhandling an action figure right out of the package like it's some sex doll that likes it rough. How about some foreplay, buddy?

    wave 77

    I understand the hesitation on the part of small retailers to share figures with a big-box competitor but now that TRU is out of the picture, I don't see the harm in offering full movie assortments to specialty again. Unless, of course, Walgreens is getting a full assortment of Captain Marvel Minimates.

    Where did everybody go?

    The MinimateMultiverse Minimate is another one of my prized possessions. If someone could get DST to squeeze in another run of those, with a slightly different tampo to differentiate it from the first one, that might draw some attention. I'd pay $10 for one.

    Where did everybody go?

    We just replaced our furnace last weekend so it must be that season. Hope yours is doing its job! ⛄️

    Predator Minimates

    I just opened The Predator set and my one complaint is the serious restriction in the range of motion on the Pred’s shoulders. That armor seriously limits the arms. I’m thinking the shoulder armor should have been sculpted onto the arms. Otherwise this is a pretty cool set and I’d love to see more characters from this flick.

    TRU Series 26

    The left knee on mine is fine. It’s the right one that’s stuck. ☹️

    Luke's Custom Squad - 1st Contest!

    That got my attention, too. There are quite a few winners in there.
