  1. If they were a little off now and then it would be one thing but they've produced a lot that are as bad as the one pictured above and very few that are really good. Obviously it's not a priority for DST.
  2. It's a bit confusing since we were originally expecting them later and then head September. My minimate enthusiasm must have dropped dramatically because those shots did nothing to get me excited for the wave.
  3. Yeah, they're probably hanging out with Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
  4. I'd think 8 characters, one representing each decade, would seem like an obvious way to implement the idea. If we're discussing things that are basically impossible a set of minimates on individual vintage-styled cards would be a great way to celebrate the anniversary.
  5. I thought about picking up some of the Peanuts figures for my wife but those prices make it hard to pull the trigger.
  6. Great idea but since DST has let basically every notable Marvel anniversary pass without celebration I don't see this happening.

    wave 79

    Arbitrary lineups is kind of DST's thing. I suspect a lot of it comes down to who they could do a halfway decent job of with existing parts. Most of the logic for the lineup is just working backwards from there.
  8. That 3-pack might be good enough to overcome the annoyance that I have to buy three figures to get Jean.

    wave 79

    Right? It's a shame because great design that did even minor characters justice was a strength of the line, now it's the exception. It certainly looks like avoiding tooling was a priority for this wave. Even Cosmic Ghost Rider (who I'd be totally pumped for if I wasn't so disappointed in Darkhawk) doesn't get his guns. Pretty sure that look for Gamora is already outdated. Cool, which of your favorite minor characters would you like to see done poorly?
  10. Don't worry, DST will probably skip a lot more of these so your thought process will seem even more justified. I'm underwhelmed by the whole slate. Thor especially is disappointing, I was pretty excited for where the character could be going after the conclusion of Endgame but what's been announced has dropped my interest to almost zero. Was anyone asking to bring Natalie Portman back? Of course, cool concept art for any of these could change my opinion.

    wave 79

    You couldn't imagine a helmet instead of a print on a regular head? The list of people who want a Darkhawk minimate more than me is awfully short but DST cheaping out on one of the most important parts of the character's look has severely damaged my interest in the figure.

    wave 79

    Two of those I'm interested in, costume choices make the others very easy to pass on. In the pictures available the designs look pretty mediocre, like a budget wave, maybe that will change with better pictures.
  13. I wasn't that impressed with the Marvel Legends reveals from Wed/Thurs (though it is nice to see a company realize Endgame was a big deal) but yesterday was really impressive. I think that line has become my primary Marvel collecting focus, I just can't count on minimates anymore. The Mega Construx MOTU stuff is also awesome. I'm going to have to come up with a way to fit it all in a display.
  14. At this point TNG doesn't actually have a proven record of merchandising, not with action figures anyway.
  15. I wonder if DST doesn't get reference material as quickly from Marvel as they used to? It certainly feels that way with the movies (I know that's technically a different license) and it wouldn't take much of a delay to make event waves a lot harder to do.
