    wave 79

    Yes, but If I have to have a Wolverine figure I’d want one I didn’t have instead of version x of him in y costume.
  2. Yeah I was thinking of taking the He-Man armor and seeing what it looks like on a mate and go from there. Not perfect but better than the DST release.

    wave 79

    Wish I could say I coined it but honestly not that creative. It was rampant on AOL message boards and I think it was even in wizard. It’s been over 20 years now but it was a thing similar to HEAT and the ToyBiz Brotherhood.
  4. Has anyone bought the He-Man mega construx? I kind of want to but them, and use the accessories and kit on minimates to make my own customs.

    wave 79

    Bunny Wolverine is the nickname the webs gave Wolvie after Magneto ripped out his metal and he lost his nose. https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/battles-7/angel-vs-bone-claw-wolverine-1505555/?page=1

    wave 79

    Amen. Didn’t they make a marvel universe sized one or am I dreaming?

    wave 79

    Last I saw wild child, he died in wolverine’s fight with Romulous as a bad guy, Also you are correct, they treated him like a dog in AOA.
  8. Have you checked Duane Reades? Weirdly that is where I have my best luck on Island though. I weirdly found the Avengers BC in Jersey! But so far I haven't seen Captain Marvel mates in the city anywhere between Christopher street up to 77th on the west side and on the East side 23rd to 78th. The UES stores though have a bit of back log.

    wave 79

    On this the month Alpha Turns 40! How Rude . I think if we are getting an AOA Anniversary wave I may flip a table over the other important anniversaries being ignored (Fall of the Mutants, Inferno, X-Tintion Agenda, X-Ecutioner's Song, The Massacre, Fatal Attractions) and the biggest sin Bloodties (turned 25 last year) which would have been a great time for an X-Men Avengers Crossover Wave. Magneto / Crystal Black Widow Grey / Bunny Wolverine White Vision with phasing parts / Acolyte army builder Hercules / Iceman with AOA Parts Build a figure of: Exodus and 3 boxes have to come with Avengers Jackets
  10. Considering the amount of money Spider-Man merch moves I don’t think it’s that far off. Also the reach/frequency plan is more for minimates as a whole. I would buy the hell out of a Trek set.
  11. I don’t ignore it, I just think it’s the perfect case study in not marketing it correctly. To me, the ad buy was faulty as they could have targeted it differently. I’m also not convinced that they have the proper websites píxeled for retargeting. If there was away l, I would have the master contract with Marvel and Disney allow for a tracking pixel for DST to use but that it pie in the sky as those companies are notorious for controlling their data. There are other seo tricks CPC that I also would have done on google ad words. To me that’s the challenge that DST is not really maximizing. In addition to the bunch of potential ad units that exist on social. The cost goes down overtime but to me there is a two prong approach they need. Overall brand which needs to be bought on frequency and then the actual product on reach. But again, without looking at the data this is all just a guess.
  12. Agree about the set but the fact is it sat on “pegs” for a long time. I remember seeing it being solicited and I freaked out that I wouldn’t be able to get it. But it didn’t do that great.
  13. Obviously, I agree with you. I am buying the Jackie Chan pack just for the peace symbol hand (can’t wait to get it on Jubilee and or Deadpool) and the John wick pack out of a ridiculous sense of obligation. It’s a shame that the Luke Spidey 4 pack didn’t crush it so that his store could be an option. I just think that too much faith has been put in Original Trek and not enough faith has been put in TNG. But it may be my bias as I wasn’t that into Star Trek until TNG.
  14. I think it’s healthy I just don’t see evolution. This line could be everything if it was marketed correctly and distribution wasn’t as big of a hurdle as it currently is. We don’t do ourselves favours though whinging about being able to buy a wave online and then that line not selling out on Walgreens.com.
  15. We aren’t privy to their business plans or data so everything we are saying is pure conjecture... however, I 100% agree with you. TNG launched 4 shows now and 2 movies. It also sustained a toy line for years before the 1701 nonsense. It’s not unreasonable to think that a 4 pack of a red, yellow, blue uniform with a villain like Q/The Borg/or even an alien with head back ins wouldn’t move. Guessing, I’d do it at the same volume as Alpha Flight Box set 1 and watch how they sold for a year that had a Picard show “on air”. I am 100% convinced it would sell more than John wick or Jackie Chan.
  16. I’m not sure if I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed but does it matter when DST shows the Walgreens wave considering we won’t have access to it? I have only seen one set of Captain Carol and it’s April. I didn’t see Infinity War Wave 2 until the beginning of the year. At this rate I anticipate having Wave 78 in hand before I even see End Game in stores.
  17. Soooo when do we find out the Walgreens wave and if they have a Build A Figure?
  18. I think you are right! I didn’t notice that there weren’t lady details on it! I think if anything I would have the Tony head on the extra War Machine and calm it a day. I will probably end up buy extra sets anyway as I love a good uniform.
  19. Well, this will be expensive... hopefully we don’t need to buy 3 sets to get them all done but dang do they look nice. That Rat tail that they put on Black Widow is going to look great on my Rachel Grey though so there is that. It’s very Hunger Games.
  20. I don’t know of this help or hurts but Jake Gyllenhaal is actually a really nice guy and person. Come on Zach let’s get a figure of him!
  21. I really wish Jada toys made more dioramas! At least an Avengers tower or the X-Mansion.
