    Kubrick Talk

    I have that Tarkin! My SW Kubrick collection consists of about a dozen figures. Very cool figures, but I think the repacks and spotty distribution killed the line.

    I have found Minimates at my local B&N for quite some time, but maybe they will take on more product.
  3. Hey guys! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I was just showing a coworker my "Jerkface" SDCC badges. He goes every year and was quite surprised to see my "old" badges. As I like to think, age is a state of mind and I am still a kid. I am just much slower than my 7 year old and I tired out faster, but I am still a kid at heart.

    MEGO is back!

    Some odd license (for 2018), but kinda cool.

    RIP Steve Ditko

    So many greats are moving on to the next world. I feel lucky to have met so many and known their legacies. RIP.

    SDCC 2018

    I agree with the talk of going to the next level with Minimates, but the line is always touted as have a very low profit margin. I don't know the specifics and have never been privy to the wholesale price of a Minimate, but until the line makes considerable money for a retailer, I doubt DST will give it much more attention. Mainstream characters for exclusives has never offended me because I have always been able to acquire the sets. Yes, maybe a few bucks more than a regular set, but that is the idea. Go to the con/event or buy secondary. That is the way it works.

    I agree. Interesting character, along with the droids.

    The Hasbro lines at SDCC should be classified as cruel and unusual punishment.

    Toys R Us closing all 800+ US stores

    I already miss TRU. The locations near me have been gone for weeks. There is now no brick and mortar places to shop for Minimates here. I can get a comic shop to order them, but I can do that on my own and usually cheaper.

    Lord of the Rings Minimates

    Actually, this would be cool. I liked the different body sizes, but it does come with some difficulties.

    Then there's the other world ........

    Zach Minimate?! Talk about peg warmers...

    Lord of the Rings Minimates

    I remember when I first saw protos. It was a line I was passionate about and, at the time, I really liked how they used different sizes of minimates. I always had a hard time finding them in physical stores. TRU in my area was real bad about stocking these or getting them way after they had been released. I enjoyed these and still hunt some of the unreleased figures. That Witch King looks so awesome and Lurtz is great. I have neither.
