  1. Speaking of Minimates and Ms. Marvel, those totally were Minimates costumes in the first episode, right?
  2. Transformers Series 2 is in-stock at Entertainment Earth, free shipping code SUNFREE22 for orders over $40.
  3. I can't think of a Marvel team formed in the last 10 years that only features one woman.
  4. My guess is it is based on the first GI Joe Animated Mini-Series from 1983. Dr. Vandermeer? Gladiator Ramar? Salina? Not from the first mini-series, but other contenders: The old blind hermit that found radioactive Snake Eyes? (He recently got a Reaction figure) Fatal Fluffy? The Viper?
  5. The only characters that I know are “off limits” at this time are The Fridge and Hooded Cobra Commander.
  6. CORRECTION! I picked up a bunch of these on sale and opened them up, the standard body figures (Spidey, Iron Man, Cap) actually have 7 POA, there is forearm rotation. The larger figs (Hulk, Venom) still only have 5 POA. The Torch doesn't have forearm rotation as he has sculpted flames. Overall, I am really enjoying this line. This design simplicity and ease of collecting is what originally drove me from ML to Minimates back in the day. I need to dig out some of my Minimates power effects because I think they would work well with this line, specifically the electricity effects for Electro.
  7. Got mine today, Thanks BHM! Overall they are really nice ‘mates, but I am surprised nobody has mentioned Deadpool’s weapons. They are molded in a noticeably thinner and softer plastic. The swords barely stay in his hands they are so thin.
  8. With current events, that is a possibility. Zach, care to drop a few hints in case WWIII breaks out?
  9. Any of these get mailed to Fayetteville, Arkansas?
  10. Let’s hear it, please. if you want to discuss a bulk shipment to US for distribution to MMMV members, I’ll volunteer to distribute. What is the case breakdown, is it random or consistent? My guess is that “Legacy Movie MM Asst Wave 1” would consist of: - Animated Black Panther/Shuri - Animated Captain America/Peggy Carter - MCU Black Widow - MCU Falcon and Winter Soldier
  11. DST needs to step up the quality control for $50 boxsets. I just got an email from Customer Support this morning stating they don’t have replacements for the missing pieces I reported from the Dark Phoenix wave.
  12. For anyone curious about the scale of the Jada Toys VAMP… Minimates won’t fit inside, but it makes for a decent display piece. Supposedly they are making a HISS too, but I haven’t seen it anywhere.
  13. I don’t think Zach ever said it was scripted, I can’t find that in any of his comments in this thread or the GI Joe thread.
  14. Some people have been requesting wrestling stuff for years though, so I don’t think that would be cause for a WTF response. Chuck is a huge sports fan though, so DST acquiring a license for MLB, NBA, or NFL would be a bit more WTF. Those licenses seem like they would be a bit out of reach for DST, unless they are partnered with another company that already has the license. Maybe we are getting a Minimates/TeenyMates collaboration.
  15. Game of Thrones - a big license with many spin-offs allegedly on the way. The property has lost its luster after the botched final seasons. Definitely constitutes WTF reaction. The Walking Dead - with the Minimates history and zombie fad finally winding down, it would definitely illicit a WTF reaction. The main series is ending but again there are more spin-offs planned. SNL - definitely not going anywhere, and lots of material to mine, but does anyone really want mini figures of the “Making Copies Guy” or “The Californians”? Please, please, please let it be What We Do In The Shadows. Currently no licensed product out there, not even Funko Pops. I would buy Selects, Minimates, Vinimates, Prop Replicas, Life Size Nadja doll, statues. I’m all in.
  16. Zach said “broadcast”, which should limit shows on NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX as the primary contenders in the US. FX, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central would all be cable tv. Unless he used the term “broadcast” loosely to indicate not a streaming service like Netflix, Disney+, etc.
  17. It better be Bob’s Burgers! I will go 100% in. The show is beloved and is seriously unrepresented in toys/collectibles. Plus the movie is finally coming out later this year.
  18. 1) The Fantastic Four Wave 82 6 character boxset (7 if you count HERBIE, provided he didn’t get scrapped) will be solicited with a $50 - $55 MSRP price tag and will most likely be the first Marvel wave since 15 that doesn’t make it to production. 2) Knowing DST’s luck with licenses, it will be The Matrix Resurrections.
  19. For a "special edition" deluxe boxset, this is some of the most clinical toy packaging I've ever seen. Didn't even use the traditional NBX red & black stripe motif.
  20. To be fair, knowing DST’s history of glued bubbles, they will easily fall off. Maybe even in the box!
  21. Well, Series 1 are up on BBTS for $40 for the carded set of 4 in a cardboard box. I know prices/logistics/etc are going up, but at $10 per Minimate, I think I’m officially out of the Joe game. It doesn’t help that they are bare-bones too. No helmets, backpacks, and Snake Eyes doesn’t even come with Timber. I love the license, but you have to draw the line somewhere, and $10 a pop is over my line. The single carded figures should have been limited convention exclusives, with standard box sets being the primary form of release for people who don’t want to pay extra for packaging. Good luck, DST.
  22. Zach, can you say if Walgreens is still carrying other DST product, just not Minimates? It appears to me the toy aisles are generally shrinking at the Walgreens around me. The "collector" toys haven't been restocked in months, but all the seasonal toys are setup in the seasonal aisle. Apparently people find GI Joe Classified at Walgreens, I have never seen a single figure (or section for them) at any of the ones near me.
