    wave 77

    Did anyone want that particular Miles? I don't think even big fans of the character were clamoring for that look.
  2. I remember reading the comment about the count before but it's really striking once you realize how it's actually playing out. I think the Avengers aren't the only ones in the endgame now.
  3. I suspect that's right. It's too bad, these already feel like less important alternate looks (even if they end up being the main look in the movie), not being accurate makes them even less desirable.
  4. Didn't Zach say there was nothing else planned?
  5. I'm not sure why they made that War Machine if they weren't going to put any effort into it. Thanos and Ronin look good. Widow is probably a good translation of that costume. It's nice to see Stormbreaker finally. Overall a pretty underwhelming set of minimates for the most anticipated Marvel film ever.
  6. I've been wondering that myself, people seem to be freaking out for no reason.

    wave 79

    That kind of awfulness has a way of burning itself into your brain.
  8. My take? There aren't that many serious minimate collectors, or at least not enough to make a boxset with a run of 3000 a sales success, even a boxset that many of us felt personally invested in and bought multiples of. If we can't make a desirable Marvel set like that a safe bet what hope do other properties have? While I think DST has made many blunders over the years in character selection across various properties the harsh truth is that when they say they don't think the demand is there for something they're almost certainly right. Also, I can't count how many times I've seen someone post a crazy wishlist who would also complain about having to buy a character they don't like to get one they do in a two-pack. Plenty of us talk a big game about how much they care about a line but don't back it up with our wallets, which I suppose kind of goes back to that first point.
  9. That still means you have to believe there are a lot of people who would have bought the boxset but didn't because they weren't aware of it. I find that questionable at best.
  10. That pack tells us a lot about the market but since it's not the information we want to hear I think a lot of us ignore it.
  11. We do need those weeks of criticizing the lineup. I think that's more true than most of us would like to admit. The line certainly doesn't seem healthy.
  12. I've built a number of Halo, TMNT, and Star Trek sets and I'd say that while MB's quality isn't quite there with Lego it's close enough that it's hard to imagine anyone but a Lego loyalist complaining about it. I do agree about the building experience, since the parts aren't sorted out in a way that's related to the build you really need to do some sorting ahead of time to minimize frustration. That's one of the reasons (the other is space) I've never got around to putting together the Technodrome.
  13. If you do you see a Kirk or a Spock it's part of a minifigure that is made up of mixed properties and it's from a wave that has been sitting there for over a year. The MB Star Trek line died from lack of sales, just like the minimates. The idea that it would just take listening to "fans" to be successful is nothing but hubris.
  14. All these people that say they no problem with movie minimates sure seem quick to jump in and say a comic version is good enough for them. I was going to post something about Toyark saying DST had showed off a statue from FFH but looking closer I'm pretty sure they just confused Noir for the movie's stealth suit.
  15. The Wind Raider is on Amazon and had already been marked down 20% since it's release. The only place I've seen it at brick and mortar is Wal-mart.
