    Kingdom Hearts

    Wow this is a perfect line for me. Looks like I'm back in, can't wait for these to come out.

    Lucha Underground

    It's got a following that's only going to get bigger with the advent of being added to Netflix. It's characters are colorful, varied, and superhero-like. I'm starving for toys of them. Why not Minimates?

    The "Ask Zach" Thread!

    I grew up reading Toyfare (I got my first issue in 5th grade, I'm now about to be 29) and I just wanted to say it's cool to get to interact with you on a regular basis, and I think it's really cool that you have such a rapport with the community behind these figures. I got my first ones in 2004, and it's been an obsession ever since. In terms of an actual question, is there any really fringe property you'd love to see get the Minimates treatment? My main "out there" wish would be a set based on the anime/manga Initial D, in vein of Speed Racer with drivers packaged with their respective cars. We don't have the fanbase for it in the states, but, hey it's a neat thought. Also, how do you feel about the DC Super Hero Girls initiative? As a dad of a two year old girl I'm pretty hyped that someone is finally trying to take the "just for boys" aura away from superheroes and make it an inclusive thing.

    The X-Files

    Note to self: make more hypothetical what if threads about stuff I want in the future. That seems to work well for me. Can't wait for these!

    Gundam

    Ooh, do tell! I kept looking in the clearance at my local one but no luck. Everything's still full price. Quite a few options! You might want to look into Robot Damashii/Robot Spirits figures if you're willing to spend FigurArts money. https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=443&category=5285 Just looked these up. Thanks, now I'm broke. Haha, sorry. I felt the same way when a friend told me about them. Which ones did you get?

    Gundam

    Since for the first time in ages we actually do kinda have ready access to Gundam models and collectibles in the US, why not see if anyone else here actually kinda likes them. I was super hyped to see a small Gunpla assortment at Barnes and Noble, and I do now collect the Assault Kingdom mini-figures they also have there. I have an immense collection of the old Mobile Suit in Action! toys and three Robot Damashii figures to my name (Gundam Exia, Crossbones Gundam X2, and Cherdium, Gundam). I mostly go after anything to do with Exia, I just really love that design for some reason. Anyone else a fan of the stuff?

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    I honestly dig all of these, will pick them up as money permits! That's the best Steve Rogers unmasked head I've seen since maybe the Winter Soldier series.

    A2 :Avengers the age of Ultron movie

    Cool man, I sent in a question about it on the DST website. Thanks! I'll definitely tweet to the Walgreens guy on my next break.

    A2 :Avengers the age of Ultron movie

    Got my first error ever on a 'Mate, don't think I would've noticed when he was still in the box, but Iron Man has the copyright info on both sides of his legs (front and back), it's not a huge deal as the gold and red detailing kind of distracts the eyes from it. The rest I got were fine (also got Thor/Cap). Been collecting since 2004 and it's the first time I've ever encountered anything like this, so with that long of a track record with luck on quality control, I can't even complain about it.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    Got mine finally! Skipped Dietrich/Mary for now but am more than thrilled with the set. Can't wait for the rest. I can tell there's a lot of love going into these.
