    wave 79

    The helmet is a unique shape so it is distinct from the Neo-Classic Armor. I'm not arguing it's needed or that I find it critical to my collection but it is a distinct look for a main Avenger which DST usually finds appealing. I don't know that anyone thinks it's likely that DST would use the storyline, it's just useful fodder for conversation that's a little more relevant with Captain Marvel's release. And speaking for myself it has a bunch of characters and looks that I'd love to get.

    wave 79

    I read Operation: Galactic Storm a few weeks ago and thought it would make a great theme for a wave, I think someone brought it up in the wave 78 thread too. It would have been better as a pseudo tie-in to Captain Marvel but it would still be fun since it's got something for nearly everyone: Avengers (Both East and West Coast varieties, also a new Iron Man armor) Quasar Starjammers (including Carol Danvers in her Binary phase) Shi'ar Imperial Guard Kree Starforce Other Kree (Korath, Ronan, Att-Lass, Minn-Erva, the Supreme Intelligence) Other Shi'ar (Lilandra, Deathbird) Skrulls And, of course, Rick Jones.
  3. I don't care for the way bulked-up upper arms look on an otherwise normal figure. I don't think there's a regular humanoid character that can't be adequately represented with either the standard body or a bulked-up one. I think there are a few places that chest piece can work, it's certainly not worse than the one their using now, but Hercules was not a good character to use it on. He would have been much better if the sash was a separate piece on a normal body.
  4. Saw it last night, mediocre movie full of missed opportunities. DST didn't miss many opportunities with their character selection though. I could use an extra Skrull or two and the bomber jacket Captain Marvel is a waste of a slot (one ML did too so Marvel might have pushed that look), a powered-up version would have made a lot more sense and been a more impressive minimate. Otherwise I don't see anything they skipped that I'd want more than what was made. Not having energy blasts with Captain Marvel seems like a bigger omission now since laser hands were basically her thing.
  5. We definitely need that Punisher, I don't understand how it hasn't happened already. This might sound odd but I think we need an updated classic Thor. We've received all the pieces so we can put a good one together but DST hasn't actually released one.

    wave 79

    I was just thinking how one thing I've appreciated about ML lately is how the line consistently cycles through themes so over the course of the year nearly everyone is going to get something they want. It's not Spider-Man, Spider-Man, X-Men, Spider-Man. Whatever the exact theme is it would be nice if DST emulated this approach.
  7. It would be pretty surprising if they weren't already planning it, especially since Zach made a comment about needing to buy multiples of boxsets.
  8. It does feel that way. It can't be good news if Walgreens isn't interested in minimates from the most anticipated Marvel movie ever. Given how old some of the animated minimates at my local Walgreens are they linger MUCH worse than movie stuff. Whatever the regional differences are the movie waves certainly aren't awful on that score overall, a quick look online suggests it's not exactly easy to complete your movie minimate collection if you didn't buy them when they came out. I'd also be curious what the difference in production numbers is too.
  9. I'd have to agree with DST here. I have little interest in either outriders or Chitauri but that Cap could be cool.

    wave 79

    That's true, but it's mostly because he's a Cap repaint with a new head and they were looking for characters to throw in a Captain America themed wave. I'd buy one (even the female version that I don't really care about), I just don't think I can call it likely.
  11. When it comes to outdated minimates where there aren't any other good versions available I don't think the Abomination has much competition. I could definitely go for the Leader, the animated one does not work at all for me. I think a lot of Avengers could use updates, we barely have any full teams without using outdated minimates. Classic Vision and 90's Wonder Man would be the top of the list for me. U.S. Agent and Hercules are also pretty high. I'd love to see 90's Modular Armor Iron Man updated with new paint and some add-ons. I'm sure I could come up with more if my Avengers display wasn't packed away.
  12. Maybe, I suppose I'm just tired of movie minimates that should be awesome but turn out mediocre, which was a bit of a theme with the Infinity War minimates.
  13. 100% agree with you here. Unfortunately even if they do make the new armor I'm afraid they won't do it justice.

    wave 79

    It would be cool for DST to do something to celebrate Marvel's 80th anniversary but then that's assuming this wave would even make it out in 2019.
  15. I agree. I've been considering getting out even though I have most of the Batman releases. I have little interest in the new stuff they showed and I only have so much display space anyway.

    wave 79

    Collectors say they want vehicles much more than they tend to buy vehicles when they're available so I really can't fault DST for not pursuing it (as far as we know). Outside of Ghost Rider it's not much of a loss and I don't think Chuck likes the character that much anyway.

    wave 79

    I'd be curious how much that is the case. It's obviously not an issue for Hasbro and DST certainly hasn't had a problem releasing movie and comic product close together for Spider-Man or the X-Men.

    wave 79

    It makes sense when you take into account DST's weird belief that making movie or animated versions covers the demand for comic versions. It's hit the Avengers over the past few years too. For a relatively small company it sometimes surprises me how little they seem to understand collectors. What makes me sad is that the team would be relatively easy to do.

    wave 79

    Cosmic Ghost Rider is surprisingly good. I think he'd fit into a cosmic-themed wave pretty easily if DST were ever to make one. Sadly I don't see that happening.
  20. I stopped at a Walgreens yesterday because of the ML sale, the animated 'mates they had were from Wave 2 and Wave 7.
  21. If that was the plan then they basically planned not to release those two figures because the dropship was always a longshot.
  22. I haven't seen any designs from the movie that I thought were superior, or even as good, as the comic versions DST can already make.
  23. Outside of a new title on the box, what would the movie really give us anyway? We've had the main characters multiple times in both comic and animated formats. I know there are some costume differences but I don't see much appealing there, I'm not really in the market for a fat loser Spider-Man. On the other hand at least Far From Home would have had at minimum a boxset worth of figures that gave us something a bit fresh.
  24. It's not unusual for minimates at an event to be put together slightly incorrectly so it's possible Guido's chest block is further down than it should be anyway. Too bad Wolfsbane doesn't have Wolf Man hands and feet. I guess that's in keeping with the other Marvel wolf and cat people.
  25. Since they look so similar to the ubiquitous ML pieces they didn't even register as new at first. They do look pretty cool.
