Toy Fair 2012

29 posts in this topic

Newbie here, decided Toy Fair was a decent topic of conversation since it is quite close. What are you guys expecting in terms of minimates? What about other toy lines? Personally, while this has no basis for being true and is nothing more than a daydream, I am looking forward to a surprise announcement that DC Minimates are making a comeback, I know it won't happen but that's what I'm hoping for. Also looking forward to finally seeing a complete line... or at least a wave of Battle Beasts minis.

Hope this is an appropriate thread.

I'm thinking we're gonna see an announcement of a return to Middle Earth.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Men in Black though.

I'm hoping to see the Universal Monsters have somebody besides the Mummy show up for release.

Also really hoping for several of my most-wanted in the Marvel line.

I'll just say it as a lot of us are thinking it... uh... hoping for it... uh... ready to sell our soul for it. The reveal of KANG.

A new Marvel Select?

and maybe there's a chance we'll see the Avengers Minimates on Toy Fair.

DC anyone? Is there any chance of that happening?

don't see why not, more than likely if you ask me.

still not keen on that name, myself.

I can't wait to see what dst has got in stock in the universal monster and zombie lines.

I also hope dst shows the other figures in the wave of the new ultimate spidey

Also if dc comes back some dark knight rises mates would be awesome!

I really want the Invisible Man, couldn't care less about the other figures in the line though I hope it does well enough that the Inivisible Man is released.

I hope to see Kang, DC Minimates, and some good Marvel characters we haven't seen before. I really want an updated Cable like the first one we got, but with actual suspenders like Cyclops has. The old one doesn't have a painted back which is really lame.

If the MVC3 license gets expanded to cover UMVC3 & MVC2, then he'd be a great addition to that line.

You guys are way more experienced than me so please is there even a remote possibility of DC minimates...or is the line dead for good at this point?

It's been bandied about on these (and other) boards ever since Wave8 was announced as the last wave. I'm pretty sure that they are dead. DST has said that DC have zero interest in continuing them.

Alas - DC have not been as supportive of Minimates as Marvel have. I would say there's an 80% chance that they will not be back anytime in the next couple of years.

yeah, was just having a laugh pal, I'm afraid it seems very very unlucky... at best.

I'm not expecting anything except what we haven't seen already. That way I avoid any disappointment.

I'm excited for the MU stuff and to get a better look at TRU wave 13. Oh and all the other random crap I can't afford.

I just want to be done waiting for the Toy Fair reveals. That's my big hope here. Then we can move on to speculating about the next set of reveals down the road.

Really I just want information about anything.

Stick a nail in the coffin, they're dead and buried. We'll never see them again.

How are you so certain? DST continues to actively pursue the license. If DST had given up interest I'd probably agree. It might not happen for many years, but I'm certain one day we will see DC minimates again, even if we have to wait for an entire administration change at DC.

I'm not holding my breath, and I'm not expecting it soon. But to say NEVER is quite a ballsy thing to say if you are not the rights-holder.

He's not certain,nobody is, but like many of us TM2 probably prefers not to talk of the loved ones he has seen cut off in their prime.
