  1. I was looking forward to the show but I don't want to subscribe to CBS All Access, I already have Netflix, Vudu and Amazon Prime. I don't want anything else. I do hope to catch the pilot which I read is going to be televised on CBS and if I feel it is worth it, I will wait for the season to end and do the one month trail and watch it all at once.
  2. I just found the TRU version of this wave at my local TRU. I got one Mojo/Spiral pack and two each of Tact. Wolverine/Magneto and Deathstrike/Weapon X packs. I will try to go and get more if I can come up with the funds. Now I got to get the full set from Luke's Toy Store and I will be a happy camper.
  3. Just found the TRU wave at my local TRU. I got one of each and they had Starlord/Yondo and Rocket/Gamora left. Didn't see any other Drax/Nebula packs other than the one I got.
  4. Well, in my area (Bloomington/Normal, IL) there was a Wave 1, 1.5, 2, and never saw 2.5, saw 3 and have not seen 4. So I doubt I see 5 in my area. I wanted the whole wave 2.5 but no luck and I can't afford the eBay prices or all the extras in shipping fees to get them elsewhere. I drove around to the six Walgreens in my area, today. 1 store had no Minimates at all, not even a space on the shelf for them, 1 store had two packages (The Dark Thor & the Dark Iron Man sets marked at $8.49 each), 1 store had a full set of Wave 3 ($8.99 each), 1 store had the Dark Iron Man set and the Miles&Venom set ($8.49 each), 1 store had Electro&Spiderman set ($8.99) and last store had what appeared to be five full sets of Wave 1 and Wave 1.5 all at $8.99. So the pricing was not even the same yet they all supposedly share the same UPC. Anyway, I am still looking for Wave 2.5 and Wave 4. But I think it is terrible how these are distributed.
  5. I had the thought of two sets that would pay respect to original series but don't include any of the main cast. The "Mudd's Women" box set with Harcourt Fenton "Harry" Mudd & Eve McHuron, Ruth Bonaventure, & Magda Kovacs. Those three ladies are the ones that Harry gave an illegal drug to that turned them young and beautiful so he could make a profit selling them to some miners. The "I, Mudd" box set with Harcourt Fenton "Harry" Mudd & then have a male android, a female android and Stella Mudd (an android of course). But to focus on TNG with it being the 30th anniversary year, I would like to see the Encounter at Farpoint box sets (as to get the right mix, you need at least two) along with maybe an All Good Things box set or two. As I said before "Encounter at Farpoint" set 1 could be Picard, Miniskirt Troi, Q in judge's robes (with parts to make him in a Starfleet uniform) and LaForge in a red uniform. "Encounter at Farpoint" set 2 could be Data, Worf in red uniform, Yar and Dr. Crusher. Then the "All Good Things" box set 1 could be Retired Picard, Professor Data, Governor Worf and Journalist LaForge. "All Good Things" box set 2 could then be Admiral Riker, Captain Beverly Picard, Past O'Brien, Troi in casual attire from opening sequence after her date with Worf. But even a box set from each of the TNG Movies would work somewhat. Generations: Kirk, Soran, Picard & Data or Guinan First Contact: Picard in tuxedo, Lily, Cochrane & one of the members of the Vulcan landing party or a Borg Drone Insurrection: Picard, Ru'afo, Anji and Data Nemesis: Shizon, B4, Viceroy and Tal'aura Teh tB
  6. I would like that set as well but just feel we need more Star Trek Minimates. There are so many options that are out there for new minimates to become a reality.
  7. Are we not going to get any MiniMates to celebrate the anniversary of Next Generation? I really hoped to get at the least a box set for their Anniversary. I would love to get Star Trek MiniMates in any way we can get them, box set, blind bags and so forth. But I do want to see a limit on repeats on Kirk and Spock unless they are specific to episodes. City on the Edge of Forever: Spock and Kirk in 1930 attire with Edith Keeler and then add in a McCoy with a drugged facial expression. Gamesters of Triskelion: Galt: the master thrall, Lars: Uhura's thrall, Tamoon: Chekov's thrall, and Shahna: Kirk's thrall (and there could be collars for Kirk, Chekov and Uhuru as accessories in this set and maybe a bare chest and arms to make Kirk as he was seen in this episode) Encounter at Farpoint: Troi in minidress uniform, Worf in red uniform, Q in Judge's Robes, Data (then could be parts to make Worf in yellow uniform and to convert Q to Starfleet Uniform) There could be two or three sets for this episode as well. (LaForge in red uniform, Riker without beard, Yar and Dr. Crusher could be one set. Then there could be a set with O'Brien, Wesley Crusher, Admiral McCoy and Groppler Zorn.) Qpid: Picard as Robin Hood, Data as Friar Tuck, Vash as Marian, Q as the Sheriff of Nottingham (could include parts to make Vash in another outfit) There could be at least two sets for this episode. (a five figure pack is possible Troi, Crusher, Riker, Worf & LaForge as Merry Men) Best of Both Worlds: Picard as Locutus, Commander Shelby, Two Borg Drones with some extra borg parts to make several different drones or to use to make other mates appear to be in the process of becoming drones.) Menage a Troi: Lwaxana Troi, Damon Tok, Mr. Homn, & Farek (this would give us Ferengi and then open up a future for Quark & Rom) Just throwing out ideas but I wish we could get some new takes on Star Trek minimates.
  8. Has this question been answered? I would like to know the answer. I am considering painting an Easter Bunny white to try to make the White Rabbit. I am even considering using the lost boy from the Peter Pan wave to make the March Hare to go with the Mad Hatter.
  9. I am so upset that the MotU minimates were a hoax. They looked so real and I was so hoping for them to be real. Especially Orko.
  10. I really need a Zoot and Lips. I loved Electric Mayhem and really want to have them all on display. I have everyone else except Zoot and Lips. Sam the Eagle would be a great addition to the line and Rizzo would be nice but not a requirement on my part.
  11. Dave: I have ordered parts for the ones I felt comfortable with making. I have Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, Faker, Man-at-Arms, Teela, & He-Man. I have my version of Beast Man and Clawful and Buzz-Off. I want the Official MotU Mates to rework using your parts to enhance the look of them as I like your parts a little better than some of the official parts.
  12. I have my custom MotU mates but I would buy both of these sets twice over and use the extra set to improve my custom mates. I would like to see more characters in the MotU series. Teela, Zodiac, Man-e-faces, and many more. But we do need a Battle Cat/Kringer which would open the concept of a tiger up for other lines........Walking Dead, for one.
  13. Prowlar, I always enjoy seeing what you come up with. I admire your creativity. You have inspired some of my customs. Thank you for sharing your customs with all of us. Looking forward to future customs shared by you. Captain Paco
  14. I would love to go since it is so close to home but my wife always has to 1/2 marathon or triathlon scheduled the same weekend. I only live two to two and a half hours south of Chicago and yet I have never been able to attend C2E2.
  15. I could enjoy some Planet of the Apes MiniMates (Classic not the new ones). I would like to see some of the classic cartoons done in MiniMates form since we are getting Muppets. We could do the characters from Hanna Barbera (Yogi, Boo boo, Grape Ape, the gangs from Laff-a-lympics:The Scooby Doobies, The Yogi Yahooeys and the Really Rottens). Then we could get the Blue Falcon and Dyno-Mutt.
