  1. I have yet to see wave 9 anywhere near me (Roanoke VA), but the store closest to work had a shipment of wave 10 today. There were 4 packs, but the Dracula/Crimson Widow set was missing. In its place was a second Adam Warlock/Rocket pack. Another interesting thing was that the sets weren’t ringing up. The cashier had to have a coworker go back and check the price. I didn’t check to confirm this but it struck me afterwards that it was weird because I thought all the Walgreens mm sets had the same sku...?
  2. No, you’re right. If Sonic, Tails, and Eggman weren’t enough to push the set, Knuckles wouldn’t make any difference. I guess I’m still just hurting a bit from the way it played out. As a fan of the Genesis era, I would have been perfectly content to get Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Eggman (Robotnick). The other characters are superfluous from my perspective (I hadn’t even heard of Amy until they made a Minimate of her).
  3. It isn’t looking likely. There hasn’t been any official word, but Zach has been making comments that give the impression the first box set performed very poorly. maybe if they had put Knuckles in there instead of Amy, it would have fared better 🤷🏻‍♂️
  4. An RPG may not work, for exactly that point. But I’ve long held to the thought that Minimates would make a great base/gimmick for a board game of some sort. Maybe a TCG or something akin to Munchkin As was mentioned previously, the customizable nature of the figures is a huge draw. and they could thrive off of regularly released expansions. It’s just a matter of finding the right gameplay mechanics and character/IP/theme. Maybe Battle Beasts or Calico Jack?

    wave 79

    8. We’re about to go platinum
  6. Yeah, Into the Spiderverse just won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature
  7. Ditto on not hating movie waves; I personally am just more excited to get comic based stuff. Especially when they’re selections from childhood favorite storylines or teams. I honestly never thought we’d be getting a Strong Guy Minimate, and I’ve always loved that Cyclops costume. These last two comic-based waves are bringing back a lot of the excitement I had felt in the earlier days of collecting this line

  9. I am in love with the Sonic Minimates that we have, and would feel a constant nagging frustration if we never got Knuckles. I do understand the whole dynamic of sales numbers, but if the worst case scenario occurs and DST decides against a second box set, would it be feasible to get a 2-pack with Knuckles and Super Sonic? Maybe as a con exclusive or Walgreens or something along those lines?
  10. Luke just posted that his next Custom Preorder will be the In-Betweener. He also teased his next Character Cut-Out in his latest newsletter and the glimpse looks an awful lot like it's going to be The Living Tribunal
  11. Zach, I really appreciate your responses and your willingness to engage with our questions 🤙🏻 On the topic of MCU Minimates; I’m curious about Avengers: End Game. Will we be getting any offerings for that movie?
