  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  4. When it comes to outdated minimates where there aren't any other good versions available I don't think the Abomination has much competition.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 I think a lot of Avengers could use updates, we barely have any full teams without using outdated minimates.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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  8. 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.
  13. I stopped at a Walgreens yesterday because of the ML sale, the animated 'mates they had were from Wave 2 and Wave 7.
  14. If that was the plan then they basically planned not to release those two figures because the dropship was always a longshot.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Since they look so similar to the ubiquitous ML pieces they didn't even register as new at first. They do look pretty cool.
  19. One of the things that's kept me interested in minimates over the years it the possibility of getting stuff that doesn't fit into other lines, like scene-specific minimates and unmasked or depowered looks. Iceman is a perfect example of this, unfortunately the only version of Bobby they've made like this is probably the least popular one they could pick.
  20. Almost as much fun as posting wish lists in the wish list thread. I think most people have something like the ML Stan Lee in mind, or the recently canceled BAF, or of course the MCU appearances. But obviously there's been lots of Stan Lee product that wasn't related to Marvel, like Standor or all of those Pops. If DST was interested in this (and I doubt they are) it unfortunately seems a little late now that Stan is gone. A few years ago was the perfect time, now it might come across like trying to cash in.
  21. I'm pretty sure all releases have to be approved by Marvel, it's not like DST can just do whatever they want.
  22. I'm aware of that so perhaps likeness was the wrong word, I do remember Zach saying something to the effect of they couldn't just throw him into a movie wave where he made a cameo because of license issues.
  23. I think it's been said in the past that Stan's likeness wasn't included in the movie licenses.
  24. Ferro I understand, Bishop is the one that really stands out since DST chose to make a version from a single scene instead of how he appeared in most of the movie and there were plenty of slots where he could have fit in.
  25. The last Madrox was released nine years ago, at that time we weren't even getting stands with minimates. DST upped their game with accessories since then which I think is a large part of the reason there's still a line to collect. It was a pain to army build last time even with two in the wave. I'm not sure how much of a difference the Angel debacle made there.
