  1. 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.
  2. I agree. Interesting character, along with the droids.
  3. The Hasbro lines at SDCC should be classified as cruel and unusual punishment.
  4. 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.
  5. Actually, this would be cool. I liked the different body sizes, but it does come with some difficulties.
  6. 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.
  7. I own the above. Here are some photos of those I do not.
  8. I have a few of these pre-production figures myself. I am not sure I still have hosted photos since Photobucket went nuts, but I do have photos. I have a Twilight Witch King and a Ringwraith. There was also a Mordor Orc that did not get released. Let me see if I can put some pics up.
  9. Happy Birthday Zach! I love seeing the pics you post of the old Toyfare crew. I read that rag religiously.
  10. I have tried very hard to hear "Laurel". I just can't convince myself that is what is coming out of the speakers. It is interpreted by my ears as "Yanny".
  11. Done. I will have my bags packed.
  12. My TRU had what they called a sale during the week and now the building is empty.
  13. My crowd funding days are over.
  14. Thelast visit I had at TRU, the clerk told me to throw away my rewards card and then corrected himself, saying that I would need it if I was expecting any coupons. Otherwise, trash it.
  15. I'd contact customer service at DST. They are really good about getting folks missing parts and replacing damaged ones.
  16. I rarely pre-order anything anymore. I got sick of pre-ordering for top retail only to be rewarded with finding the same item discounted everywhere.
  17. I wouldn't feel bad. The good thing about Best Offer is that the seller can so no or even counter offer. I tend to offer a bit low, knowing they can always counter me.
  18. I have a select few 6", but with exception of my childhood 3 3/4" figures, I have only one "modern" figure and it is the convention 501st Stormtrooper.
  19. BAF stuff has usually been glazed over by DST and I can understand it. However, I think it could add some fun to collecting. Certainly, a little more challenge (if we don't have enough already).
