    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    That could also explain why these were canceled relatively early.

    "Avengers: Endgame" Minimates

    I think anyone who expects everything to be covered by whatever combination of releases we do get is going to be disappointed. There are always omissions or odd character choices and with the extreme secrecy surrounding this movie I can't imagine it's going to be any different.

    "Avengers: Endgame" Minimates

    If I had a nickel for every time someone mentioned wave 60... I guess we know there's definitely one new costume.

    Predator Minimates

    At this point I'd be (pleasantly) surprised to see we were getting any more. I would like to finish the Lost Tribe.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Funko has revealed their lineup of Captain Marvel merchandise. No real surprises but it gives us a good idea of what might be in a minimates boxset.
  6. I'm surprised DST managed to cover as many characters as they did. I'm fairly satisfied with what we got (still can't believe they didn't give us a Shepard with a helmet), though I would buy just about anything from the first three games, including variations of the main characters. I think blind bags hurt the line a lot but I'm not sure it would have got much farther in a more accessible format.

    Daredevil Netflix (& other show) minimates?

    Personally I'd like to see Iron Fist get another season somewhere to resolve the teaser from the end of the season, I want some live action Orson Randall. This makes the cancellations of the other shows look better because there's no way there was an issue with Daredevil's ratings in Season 3. It has to be Disney taking their toys home. Hopefully they don't screw it up.

    Minimates price hike?

    Minimates are the only line I can think of that has maintained a consistently lower price for something like a 2-pack while increasing the price of the boxset with twice as many characters. While not a completist I still buy most Marvel minimates and I still find it hard to pull the trigger on boxsets unless there's a significant discount. I ended up not buying the Black Panther set for this reason, well, that and the crazy amount of duplication in that set. If a dedicated minimate buyer hesitates to buy these I can't imagine less serious collectors are eager to buy.

    BC Avengers Wave

    The last time I was in a Walgreens (which has been awhile since I'm caught up thanks to 26 going online) it looked like no one had touched these.

    wave 77

    If Captain Marvel minimates end up being in a boxset I think I'm more likely to skip them completely than buy multiples. Has DST lost faith in anything that's not an Avengers movie?

    Where did everybody go?

    I suspect the ease of posting pictures on FB is part of it, though from my experience in a different FB group it's really a horrible way to run a fan community. I also have to think the rate of new releases and the general feeling that DST is focusing less on minimates is a factor.

    Pacific Rim: Uprising

    I think you're probably right that the amount of tooling needed to do the jaegers justice on a basic minimate body would be cost prohibitive. They would need to be distinct from each other to be worth buying.
  13. That's great news but if Coulson isn't in it I'm not as interested. Season 4 was amazing and 5 was quite good, hopefully with an early renewal they can make the most of 6.

    Antman and the Wasp

    Now that I have these in hand I agree. The pearlescent plastic looks nice but doesn't seem to really match the movie. I also find it a little odd that the detail lines on Ghost are gray on the body but black on the head. Maybe it's an attempt to suggest phasing? I'm disappointed Hank's helmet doesn't have a transparent visor however it is consistent with Ant-Man and Wasp so I suppose it makes sense. The extra head inside is bizarre and also really difficult to remove. Wasp is good and comes with a much better flight stand than the recent Demogoblin. Ant-Man's chest is a notably different color than his arms and legs and it kind of ruins the figure for me, it's too bad since DST has really done a good job on this sort of thing in the last few releases. The feet all fit on the stands well and aren't the same mold as the wave 76 feet.

    Antman and the Wasp

    I suppose I should clarify, I understood the figure was going to be released without an alternate head, I'm surprised and disappointed it would happen given the character spends as much time in the movie unmasked as masked. It's the kind of thing that's causing me to slowly lose interest in movie minimates.
