  1. Checked 5 stores in the Kansas City area, and 2 of them were stocked with wave 10. The cases must be randomized or something, because one store had 1 Strange and 3 Venoms and then the other one had 3 Rockets and 1 Venom. One store rang the sets up properly, but the other one had to manually enter the price. Even scanning older waves wasn't working for them. It's weird how my stores completely skipped waves 8, 9, and the Endgame stuff, but these decided to show up. 🙄
  2. According to the article, the 200 stores they’re closing only makes up 3% of their entire U.S. foothold. There’s almost 10,000 Walgreens in America apparently. Maybe that explains why I can never find stock 🤔
  3. Frustrating to see solicitations for new Endgame stuff from DST. I get that statues are what sells for them now, but this seems pretty telling it’s not that DST doesn’t want to revisit Endgame, it’s that they don’t want to revisit the Endgame Minimates
  4. I really wanted to do this one, but I just never had the time. The entries are super good this time around!
  5. I'm probably gonna start rambling here, but I think the biggest problem with things right now is people are unsure if they should have unbridled consumption of the products we get, or never-ending cynicism. There's nothing wrong with feeling either, but when it becomes the basis of your feelings that can be the problem, especially when I see discussions boil down to "How dare you complain about people complaining about complaining about things". People talk a lot about X or Y line being cancelled, but Kingdom Hearts and Sonic really struck a chord with me. I've mentioned before my deep love for both properties, and seeing the lines fizzle out before they got on their feet really hurt. It's wrong to think that DST is in their office scheming of "How can we ruin a toyline for this one exact person," but like...Not getting a figure of Aqua, Riku, Knuckles, Shadow, etc. from my favorite properties is probably best compared to how Aliens fans felt when they didn't get Ferro or a clean Bishop, or when Marvel fans have an incomplete team of X-Men from a certain era. Do I think that we're in the endgame? I'm not really sure. Personally, I've been trying to just lead my collecting life with a "Things may not last forever, but I want to enjoy it as much as I can while I still have it" attitude. I'd be devastated if Minimates would end, but I'm happy I had the time of my life collecting over the years.
  6. I know reserves and there's a whole number of reasons as to why these got scrapped, but... It's super frustrating to see a set of Minimates get cancelled, but the Vinimates for the same license get solicited a few weeks afterwards. That'd be like Sonic getting no more support, and then DST making Shadow or Knuckles as Vinimates instead
  7. Well, if we're opening the spoiler-gate... I'm just now realizing that the team suits we got aren't even accurate to the ones in the movie. The Minimates have a dark, greyish-silver print while the movie has them wearing super bright almost white costumes. I'm not sure if anybody is going to have luck finding the Walgreens wave, but I suppose adding hair from Thor 2/AOU and the powerhouse chest from this Hulk is the closest we can get to an easy "Lebowski" Thor. I really wanted to see more from this movie, but it hurts knowing it's not going to happen. Even if we got a box set or something near the DVD release, it wouldn't be the Final Cap/Thor/Rescue/Valkyrie/etc. that people are begging for. I'm imagining Battle Damaged Thanos, Battle Damaged Iron Man, Tony in SHIELD soldier disguise, and a re-release of the same Captain Marvel. Am I the only one who just gets depressed thinking about Minimate releases instead of excitement for the future? 😣
  8. I was just about to pre-order both of those from Luke, too. 😖
  9. Somebody in Indiana is selling a full set on eBay for $125, so I think it’s safe to say the hunt has started
  10. You've posted 100 times on this website, you should by now have a grasp on how the Spoiler system works, which is literally there to black out text. You even just reinforced what you spoiled again, but this time in tiny text. You're clearly just doing it to get a knee-jerk reaction from others. Some people read posts pretty rapidly, I often find myself just scrolling and grazing text, so sometimes I'll see text before I see an "alert"
  11. Please don't spoil parts of the movie for others, seriously. Getting some kind of satisfaction for upsetting others is not cool.
  12. I think DST has just been dealt a bad hand in the last few years, and it feels like everyone is giving them a bad rep more and more. For what it's worth, I feel they're trying their best with what they have going on. Sure, I want things to be better, but I'm also grateful for any kind of release we get, because it shows that this is a line that DST wants to keep going. Back on the Endgame stuff, I quite like the uniform look of the quantum suits, I just think it's awkward to see someone like Cap or Iron Man with their regular blue or red helmets on top of the relatively drab silver bodies.
  13. Toy News International has their gallery up, but there’s no Endgame in sight. Actually, I don’t see a single Minimate on display. Maybe it’s because they’re having to share booth space with their new Gentle Giant stuff, but that’s not reassuring.
  14. C2E2 started today, and DST had a panel at about 1:45 this afternoon. Did anybody go, was there anything shown off?
  15. Was this person just blindly messaging people? I got a PM from him asking if I was an admin, and then he started complaining about Shane again
