  1. I think it depends on how you are defining confidence. We have to remember that we are a small niche community and there are other Minimate collectors that don’t engage with us and may actually be happy and not have any worries.
  2. I just don’t see the days of 4 pack waves happening any more. Or maybe 4 pack waves are for LCS and 3 pack waves are for Walgreens.
  3. So I have been thinking about this and I think I’d want 3 waves of two packs. Each two pack representing a decade.
  4. I’m still salty about this. Couldn’t they just put them up for pre-order and then see it there was interest? I mean let’s face it, we wouldn’t be getting any new parts really do whats the harm?
  5. Correct. As a few people on the board can attest to I have SEVERAL Walgreens, Rite Aids, and Duane Reade stores which is great for me but probably not the best strategy for them. They had planned on closing some of the DR stores when they acquired them a few years back but the DR name is too powerful in NYC. Mind blown.
  6. This I feel is correct. I however was in college and poor and couldn’t even buy them at bargain!
  7. I’d really want the BAF to be the Watcher. Remember when Toybiz did this? We got some great figures.
  8. Lest we forget we do have NYCC still on the docket so maybe they will have something for that because I would seriously be gobsmacked if they didn’t do this.
  9. Are these still coming in September Zach? I've been waiting 30 years for this Red Jean and I'm getting impatient!

    wave 79

    Yeah, at media day they said they wanted to keep Disney+ pg13 so Hulu would be the distribution point. I still think it will be in theatre though. Who knows maybe straight to dvod.

    wave 79

    That movie will come out but it will be a burner. It’s either going on Hulu or a limited release but it will come out... even with the poor performance of Dark Phoenix.

    wave 79

    With the shows and the New Mutants Horror movie next year I would imagine we would be going in that direction hopefully soon.
  13. Well, I don't know your situation but you could always buy and resell, donate to a toy drive, or just exchange them to the store later. The impasse doesn't seem to help you out.

    wave 79

    Not sure but even that increase may be needed to turn a profit. At the end of the day DST does do as much fan service as it can but it does need to turn a profit. Again, I don’t work for them but just seeing the industry trends makes it seem like the move to less assortments is a cost cutting measure.

    wave 79

    Look I’m always going to be salty when there is any Guardians anything and *my* Guardians aren’t in it (Jim V’s run). As for the three pack it has to be a business decision as I am assuming it is true for DST as it is for Hasbro/Mattel that costs have gone up from tariffs to more and dropping a set of figures would help alleviate that.
  16. I *get* it? 🤷🏻‍♂️ I am just happily fine not owning yet another Spider-Man from a mediocre movie. I’m happily ready for Black Widow and the hopefully two chest version of Red Star I’ll get.

    wave 79

    Am I seriously the only one not pissed by this helmet gate?
  18. I’m really in the minority as I actually agree with skipping far from Home.
  19. Distribution is a huge area of concern. Sure Walgreens is a larger retailer but that they haven’t done their own is just head scratching. I can’t imagine how in 2019 they still don’t have this sorted.
  20. I meant easy in the sense of they are no brainers and they are already creating pieces for them therefore they have the relationships. Sadly, I really do feel that DST is not as focused on Minimates as they have been.
  21. Not going to lie I’m buying one for my Danger Room display
  22. Agreed. Comics just aren’t doing the numbers that they were back in the day. I do think that nostalgia mining makes sense. Look at Hasbro giving us more AOA and tapping into the X-Men animated series. Also Super 7 keeps making me angry with their licenses. It’s like they hit the gold mine. And yes, I am willing to die on the hill that CW Arrowverse, Young Justice, Buffy, and Star Trek TNG are easy licenses that would boost the portfolio.
  23. Welll, Hall H came through and is giving us a huge slate of potential minimates hopefully. We have: Black Widow Eternals Shang Chi Blade Dr Strange Multiverse Jane Foster, I mean Thor 4 GOTG 3 and then the shows. Hawkeye Cap America: Falcon and Winter Solider What If WandaVision Loki Who are you most excited for?
