    Kingdom Hearts

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: There needs to be actual KH characters and not just Disney, so Riku, Kairi, Organization XIII, FF characters, Ansem, Namine etc.
  2. Man, all I really need is Classic TMNT minimates, and minimates from the SNES TMNT IV game. I'd love to have a Super Shredder figure.
  3. Since Toys R Us is going out of business, is there any chance classic TMNT can come back?

    Then why bother making two additional waves with the same characters? I think it would have been better to just release one wave, and make new figures after the first wave sells. If this line dies it will be because DST made the first three waves like this.

    Unfortunately my hope of this line doing well isn't high at all. There are too many Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Mickey Minimates and their fate is to be shelfwarmers. There shouldn't have been Space Paranoids and Timeless River versions before there were Minimates of KH characters that weren't made yet, such as Kairi, Riku, Namine, Organization XIII etc. It feels like DST is trying to appeal to the Disney fanbase rather than the actual Kingdom Hearts fanbase. I know Final Fantasy characters would have done a lot better. People really love FF7, and I bet they would go out and buy Cloud, Sephiroth, Aerith, Yuffie, and Cid Minimates even if they've never collected Minimates before. And it would line up well with the FF7 remake coming out. Some people like FF8 too so Squall (named Leon in the KH series), Seifer, Raijin, and Fujin would have been good figures too.

    Ask Zach

    Kingdom Hearts: Will we get Minimates of Riku, Kairi, Ansem, Cloud, Sephiroth, Leon (Squall), Aerith, Tifa, Yuffie, Cid, Auron, Namine, or any of the Organization XIII members? Those seem more important than all of the Donalds, Goofy's, and Mickeys we're getting.

    Is wave 1 only going to be composed of Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Mickey? No Riku, Kairi, or Ansem?

    NYCC give away

    I like that they're highly affordable and articulated characters. Minimates are my favorite block figures because I used to have a lot of LEGO toys growing up. And the community posts amazing pictures.

    Maybe it's just the angle then. I think Sora's face is fine but it looks like Axel has a long face with a huge chin.

    This is what Mickey's keyblade is supposed to look like: The other complaint that people on the KH reddit had is that the Axel figure's face is really bad.

    The End of Minimates?

    Mostly Marvel, though I did get the Watchmen box set. But canceling the TMNT series was unforgivable (they should have done the classic series first). Minimates used to only be carried by comic book stores for a long time so it's sad that DST has to rely on TRU to make enough sales now. If they cancel KH, that will be the final nail in the coffin.

    The End of Minimates?

    I s2g, if KH minimates get canceled, I am DONE with buying minimates. I was really looking forward to TMNT classic series.
  14. I don't think you gave comic stores enough time to order them. My LGS has a lot of Minimates on the shelves and usually doesn't order anything unless I ask the owner to, and I thought ordering now would be enough time in advance since the wave was supposed to come out in October.
  15. I have had a really bad day today. Woke up 3 hours before my alarm, then sat around at work for an hour and a half not doing anything because there was nothing to do, my neck is killing me and I have a headache. I did not need this. I was really looking forward to the classic wave since that's what we should have gotten in the first place, not those goofy ass Nickelodeon turtles. Instead of going to the classic series after a few waves, DST continued to make Nickelodeon turtles and released stupid crap like the space turtles. Sometimes I wonder if DST knows what they're doing. This is just like Universal Monsters series 3 getting canceled, which we could have gotten if they had not released those stupid black and white variants (and I was really looking forward to the Invisible Man, not duplicates of figures I didn't want). tl;dr this is a really stupid move for cancelling a wave that actually would have sold well, and something that I was really looking forward to. Now I'm stuck with this ugly ass Nickelodeon Shredder.
