  1. DST had posted the winners the other day: https://www.diamondselecttoys.com/blog/minimates-photography-contest-winners Hey, thanks so much DST for picking my Halo shot!! I was really proud of that one, that means *so* much to me to be selected! 😭💜
  2. Without any word on shipping or any responses to my inquiries, I got an email from DST this morning saying a package was out for delivery. I guess they do exist
  3. I've tried to get word from the customer service email to no avail (First I needed to cancel and change address because I'm moving, then no revisions, and now I just want an ETA). I reached out to the DST Twitter like a Karen and all I got was "If you don't have any updates by the end of the week try emailing us :)" Anyway, I'd love that promo. Thanks for being cool!
  4. No email yet, but I haven't gotten any word from them since I placed my order
  5. I've never had a website give me this kind of error. No matter what shipping type I pick, I can't order two Minimates because they're different products?
  6. I see the NYCC sets have been put up for pre-order, but they don’t list an arrival ETA. Any idea of when they should ship out?
  7. Oooh, this is really neat. I love the packaging to bits, inspiring them off the old Playmates figures is a fun choice. Can't wait.
  8. I wanted the Guardians of the Multiverse. This is neat but it’s not blowing my socks off, why is Scott counted as a figure? ?
  9. Hasbro just released some Lightning Collection figures of the Turtles in Power Rangers gear, part of me suspects that may be what DST is working on. Regardless, Turtle merch is big right now, I hope whatever we get does well.
  10. I don’t care for Wrestling, but if the accessories are good then I’d be easily persuaded. I’d be even more persuaded by a translucent “you can’t see me” John Cena…
  11. 2 Joes and 2 Cobras (Or 1 Joe and 3 cobra army builders ?) is the ideal way to go. Helps fill up the ranks for both teams, and it means you can pose them fighting out of the box. Now gimme Flint and Beachhead and I’m all good
  12. I will happily pay whatever the cost to get these in my hands. I'd ideally like to be down for two copies of each (To pose Logan and Wade in their alternate looks) but if we want to be even I'll take what I can get. I just wanted to preemptively thank everyone for banding together to get these in homes. It needs to be said, though...DST's handling of these releases is very frustrating. I know Minimates are a low-margin product, but they're based on two highly-popular movies that DST originally skipped despite the fan demand. I won't even begin to understand how distribution works (Especially with Covid and everything), but it just feels like there could have been more open communication through the supply chain. I don't want to dismiss Zach because he does great work and is super chatty with the community, but the messaging of "Even if I knew where they were I wouldn't tell so people won't blow up the store" to "You'll likely need to import these" hurts a little. People want to buy these, people want the product. Even if it's a small community people still *want* them. With Minimates slowing down month by month, it's getting harder to find them and thus people are going to be more desperate to know. Maybe I'm just rambling, but I just wish things were more open between DST and the community. I know nothing about business stuff nor will I ever pretend to (I’m just a depressed 26-year old with too much time on her hands). I understand we're a niche of a niche, I guess I just wish things were better. Even just DST knowing who bought the product for online sale would be something.
  13. Comicbook.com revealed the packaging for these, that $50 is a big pill to swallow. https://comicbook.com/marvel/news/fantastic-four-diamond-select-toys-previews-a-new-bust-and-minimates-set-exclusive/
  14. DST's press release about the Hasbro license did state Jem was on that list. I'd say....maybe.
  15. Seems to be BBTS's usual markup. $35 on EE. Even then, that's still a bit much for a 4-pack. I think I remember Zach talking about Minimates being a low profit margin product, but these feel really empty for that price. I guess the packaging is supposed to feel deluxe. It's super neat in concept, but I can't help but feel underwhelmed Also, DST *really* needs to get better prototypes when they solicit Minimates. They always look so much rougher than the final product, and I think people seeing those mock-ups makes them think the final product looks like that.
  16. I'm not sure if this would help, but I did find a Previews listing for the two new sets (And a couple of the other other MCU releases, those certainly aren't the right figures tho). Maybe a few comic shops managed to get these ordered... https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/MAR178503
  17. We just got the first box set and there's already a better Snake Eyes, such is life... These decos look great. Zach, would Series 1 and 2 be dropping at relatively the same time? When you say it's a "box of individually-carded figures," do you mean a box set and they're packed like that, or it's a retail case of individual Minimates for sale?
  18. Preternia from Twitter was at the booth this morning, I asked him to take a few pics and he obliged. Series 81 was there too, and they had the boxes for the current Transformers and GI Joe stuff. Still "Coming soon" though.
  19. Hail Ivan! Anything we can look forward to at NYCC? ?
  20. This and the original sighting should (hopefully) indicate they’re ideally dropping sooner rather than later. I’m definitely in for two sets of both
  21. Am I okay to enter the drawing even though I’ve already got something from Zach? If so, yes please!
  22. SDCC 2012 was my first (and only) 'con, the DST panel was the highlight of it all. Didn't meet anyone from the forum but it was so cool to see new reveals in-person. I must have missed this pin, though. I'd love to throw my hat in if you don't mind. Thank you!!
  23. That's disappointing. Hasbro and Funko are both jumping on the train for the movie, Bandai just showed off their Figuarts for him, kind of lame that DST would skip out on it. Maybe Walgreens didn't want to and DST didn't see any luck for a comic shop set. I know Disney's own store does the occasional Marvel Select (They had Sam Cap, FFH Spidey, I'm sure they'll do one for Shang-Chi), I don't see why at least 2-pack would be out of the realm of possibility.
  24. That’s a neat little box, but I think the more pressing matter would be: Did DST just leak X-23 and Wolverine from the Logan movie with that left picture?
