  1. I think you hit the nail on the head. Those licenses aren’t toy friendly. I started laughing when I heard they were going to make Dark tower mates as it was pretty well known in entertainment circles that that movie was going to bomb. I was surprised about Pulp Fiction has a strong following but it had been years since View Askew did anything popular. I think Rocketeer though hits some key quadrants: it’s fun, nostalgic, timely and makes sense. I would be surprised if they made more than a 4 pack though.
  2. Hey Zach: Out of curiosity, what are the odds we could get a Fantasticar statue similar to the Thundertank?
  3. It’s disappointing that due to lead times we can’t get more figures. Especially now that the movie is going back into cinemas with new footage.
  4. Agreed. My only two cents would be that it’s challenging to get the parks to carry anything. Last time I went I didn’t see any minimates on Disney property but I do remember they had them at Islands of Adventure but that was years ago.
  5. He has repeatedly said on this board that the line is continuing. And tbh I believe him although I am concerned about distribution, licenses, and now prices due to tariffs which will lead to a price increase but I am primed to believe we have at least 3 more waves for Marvel product.
  6. I’m growing impatient for my translucent Green Lantern!

    wave 79

    After flipping through some back issues, I would love a cosmic wave! Vance Astro, DarkHawk, Gladiator, Lilandra (BAF), Starlord, Yondo, Nebula, Genis Marvel.
  8. 😂 and I thought I was bad with my multiple sets!
  9. Late to the game as usual but, if we were exploring licenses I would start with a few that DST already has like Buffy. DST rode that Buffy train for years but never took it to the minimate station and I think that there is a market for that. I am going to beat the damn TNG drum until it breaks. Especially with Picard coming back. I would think too that the nostalgia wave that brought us TMNT and Thundercats could yield us other properties that were popular in the 80's like MASK, Silver Hawks, Jem, or my holy grail the Bionic Six as He-man may be too expensive. The youth often speak of Steven Universe, Avatar, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, and the Tick while I do love Saga and could see a wave or four from Riverdale.
  10. Some one please remind me, what’s the scale for minimates? 1:12?
  11. I think it comes down to what wave 79 will be And if Luke feels like there is enough there for it 🤷🏻‍♂️
  12. Look I appreciate that there are distribution problems but I am exhausted with the narrative that minimates are dying. They have had far worse years. This deal with Luke is extremely positive and I really hope it sells out quickly to justify more deals like this in the future. I cannot wait for these toys to come out! I have wanted them for years and am thrilled to see them. It’s also the first poseable Jean in her red costume ever!
  13. I highly doubt that they quietly cancelled especially since it would have leaked by now.
  14. Hey there: It's an easy kitbash. Basically I ordered a second set specifically for this. With the second set of X-Factor 90's Take Lorna's chest piece and put it on a Havok body add a blue eyed female face and blonde pony tail to get this: With the Havok chest piece, put it on Lorna's body add on a Quicksilver hear piece to get: Take the extra Wolfsbane and add human piece and a spare Rahne head to get her human form. For the three 80's X-Factor folk, Cyclops comes with an alternate head, you can kit bash Beast in his ape form taking the Secret Wars trunks and hair if you don't mind a different blue. Finally add a blonde hair piece to Jean and you have a Husk figure.

  16. Can we please remember that they are in Walgreens which is one of the top 20 retail outlets?
  17. I just realized that we now have no news to look forward to until SDCC...
  18. I really hope this exclusive sells out quickly! I am so excited for these figures!
  19. Well, this changes nothing for me as I still need 3 sets pending Luke’s exclusive being a game changer.
  20. THE DREAM!!! Get me more Warriors!
  21. Blue Quicksilver is harder to get since he was TRU and the X-Factor Set Bobby I weirdly feel is common but I fully expect to be wrong. The Multiple Men pack although I feel would be the most fan service is interesting. Luke only has a small batch so it could still trigger multiple sales of the prime two pack from the cases. Or who knows maybe it’s a Iceman/Quicksilver and they are both wearing the X-Factor costumes. Maybe it’s the X-Terminator uniforms. Whomever it is I hope they do pack in extra Jaime faces.
