    wave 77

    Have to applaud DST for some creativity with that Spider-Man. That Miles is a horrible costume design and I'm a little disappointed DST chose it. Mysterio seems like a waste though I suppose he'll be better than the Carnage in wave 76 as far as being a repeat. Prowler, Molten Man, Kraven, and Hydro-Man look good and there seems to be just enough new parts to not feel like the characters got shorted. Vulture is a little boring being so much like the first but that one was so close to perfect that I guess there's not much to do if they fix the colors and plastic. I'll have to wait for a better picture of the Spider-Slayer.

    DC Minimates & everlasting optimism

    I'm afraid this could be accurate. Minimates seem to be turning into an afterthought with PVC statues and action figures getting most of the focus (and sales).

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    They were in a press release a few days ago.

    Does the wave have a different number on it than previous ones? It seems like usually movie waves do and they're eventually available, it just might take more than two weeks.

    Marvel Minimates Wish List

    Apparently Hot Toys has decided to (more or less) do this: https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/marvel-the-punisher-war-machine-armor-hot-toys-904324/
  6. It would be nice if there were some numbers on that list. I suspect the top items have significantly larger runs than the latest LCS waves.

    Spider-Man PS4

    There's going to be a Rhino Gallery statue too: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/check-out-this-massive-spider-man-game-collectible/1100-6464430/

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    I think we can expect every Spider-Man suit that shows up in the movie. Mysterio could look cool if done right. What we saw of the villains in the trailer doesn't get me excited for minimates of them. Also, I could do with never hearing the Spider-Man theme in a movie again.

    Not helping.

    I could have sworn we had a wish list thread somewhere...

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Zach said on 1/3 that these would be out "soon" so I don't see why these slowly starting to show up would be anything other than Walgreens' usual distribution.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Exactly. The chest piece they used only looks good with the other bulked up parts, it's ugly with normal arms and legs. DST seems to use this formula enough that they should have another piece available. The one you mention would be a much better alternative if it still exists.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Is Bron Char's specialty being fat? You'd think DST would have a better solution than that particular chest piece by now, they can do better. Nice to see Ronan's Universal Weapon correct this time, that was one of the strangest mistakes I've seen made. The wave looks pretty good if awfully repetitive. Considering the cat is the best accessory in the ML figures it's disappointing to not see it here.
  14. Kurtzman oversees all Trek on CBS All Access? That explains a lot and leaves me with little hope for the franchise. I'm sure the adventures of Picard the diplomat will just be screaming for toys.

    DC Minimates

    They are using the other characters, just not as much as Batman. In the the 2019 sets they've showed so far Aquaman and Flash are included. Superman, Lobo, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, Firestorm, Cheetah, Cyborg, Reverse Flash, Killer Frost, and OMAC were all in 2018 sets, plus a few others in Lego's impossible to obtain promos. I get that it's not ideal for collectors but for Lego it is ideal to be the only place you can go to get your DC block figure fix and they are no doubt paying handsomely to make that happen. I have no doubt there's some way to work a license so that DST could make DC minimates again but in the end it's probably not worth it to DC if it makes Lego unhappy.

    DC Minimates

    You guys seem to be illustrating quite well why Lego wouldn't want DC minimates to come back. As for the difference between DC and Marvel, it's easier to hold back a line that doesn't exist than to cancel a successful one that does. Think Hasbro and Marvel Select.

    DC Minimates & everlasting optimism

    Nothing we've heard from DST in the past suggested that Mattel was an issue, it seemed to have more to do with DCC and, of course, Lego.

    Mattel strikes again.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    But we would get three variant angels and a glow-in-the-dark sheep.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    No thanks. I already have something like 30 Aliens, I don't need any more. Which I suspect is part of the problem, most of the line was the same figure with minor variations over and over and over. If DST could give us something new, like properly done Kenner Aliens, then maybe you'd have something, but we all know that's not happening. It's disappointing with everything that was produced we end up two figures short of what we need to make the line feel complete.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    Only one Skrull and he's in a boxset? That sounds about right. Carol and Att-Lass don't look very good to me. I think it must be the faces because the uniforms look as I'd expect them to. Minn-Erva on the other hand is much more interesting, depending on accessories, which I expect are going to be limited.

    Captain Marvel Movie Minimates

    I agree, making the jacket a tampo doesn't look as good and reduced my interest in the figure. I assume they would say it's being done that way because of the hair.

    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.
