  1. I went and tried to see if any had made it to eBay US but didn’t see any. I really want the Logan & Laura set
  2. When that time comes you can count on me buying a modest sized army.
  3. I wonder if they could work with some of the vintage vehicles. Also makes wonder what the people of Flagg would look like with minimates on it and the old minimate jets or whatever it was called
  4. I actually like the box design. I could honestly see myself putting them on a bookshelf if they look good in person and if I have room (normally packaging goes straight into the trash and recycler). While I would always prefer to not have price increases, I understand them. In the scheme of things one “wave” of minimates costs about the same as two Marvel Legends figures. That feels about right. I am a little concerned that the switch could doom the random non-themed mates and unless Diamond does an entire boxes of army builders I don’t see being able to build any armies even small ones of two or three. That hits me hard let with the Cobra from GI Joe than Marvel.
  5. It also fits Zach’s prediction of a “WTF” response. I know if it is wrestling, I never saw it coming or thought of it until his comments and clues. The more I think about it the more wrestling makes sense in minimate form.
  6. I think it could be wrestling. It definitely would have been totally unexpected (at least by me). The wrestling toy lines have lasted a long time and are in the major retail stores so it could potentially lead to getting minimates into Walmart and back into Target. I could also see them making a ring and other props to go with the figures. I would guess AEW over WWE since they are trying to get name recognition and are probably a cheaper license than WWE. Not my thing but I could see it being successful and it could bring some neat tooling if they made chairs, tables, rings, etc.
  7. I preordered it from Luke. Hopefully after wave 2 they move away from the specialty packaging to get the cost down a little bit. Don’t get me wrong I love the look but since I will be opening mine I would rather save a few dollars in the long run. If we are stuck at $10 per mate regardless of the packaging then I say keep this look.
  8. Do we know if these made in the normal Walgreen quantities? While the older waves always seemed to be a pain to find I was eventually able to get the ones I wanted and almost every wave sat on the pegs at some point so as long as the quantities are the same I would think there will be plenty to go around.
  9. Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?
  10. I am in definitely in for as long as the line lasts. I think this is a great license for minimates and I can definitely see myself doing some army building if given the chance. Would love to see some vehicles like the Hiss Tank, Trouble Bubble, HAVOC etc. but I am guessing those have a very slim chance of happening.
  11. Are we sure it will be a 6 pack and not a 4 pack? Based on the price of the Joe and Transformer 4 packs I would think a 6 pack might deter some buyers especially if they don’t want all 6 figures.
  12. Great news! Will they be taking the place of normal Marvel waves or their own line or is that still up in the air?
  13. Nice! Looking forward to new Marvel minimates. Feels like it has been a very long time without a new Marvel wave.
  14. I would love to see the standard cartoon laser rifle the Joe’s used in minimate form. It would be all new tooling but pretty much every Joe could come with it so it would get a lot of reuse.
  15. Too bad about the minimates (I am curious about the other categories). I loved that line. I even was able to track down two of the Strider prototypes from the wave that never was released. I really wanted that wave too but I will give Diamond props for getting out the entire fellowship. I still hold onto hope of one day being able to get the rest of the unreleased wave.
