For packaging completionism purposes, Ivan can call them what ever he wants. Ivan can call them the Ivan Series, I'd be fine with that.

But yes, there will be no TRU Series 6, as far as I know. Maybe we will have to change the numbering for this series, I honestly have no idea.

Honestly, I wasn't even thinking of "packaging completionism purposes." Just that it'll be counter-intuitive and confusing to go from TRU5 to TRU7, both for collectors and internally at DST, I would imagine. I'm sure members here will happily field questions from newbies wondering why TRU Series 6 is impossible to find. I was just curious how it was being handled.

With pre-orders in place for TRU's next exclusive Marvel boxed set, I'm hoping that TWD series will also be available for pre-order. That should take a lot of the anxiety out of collecting this line. (And others.)

Well, people are already asking where TRU 6 is, and I'm telling them whenever they ask, but I don't know if it's pure expectation, or if it's entirely due to the figures we showed at C2E2, or a bit of both.

I really don't know what our actual numbering plans are, or how TRU feels about it, but I'm pretty sure we're calling it 7, since it shares characters. I imagine that if we thought one method or the other would have an adverse effect on sales at TRU, then the decision would be easy. But I doubt people wouldn't buy 7 because they don't remember seeing 6. It's not a Harry Potter book.

Did anyone say Rosita or Gabriel were not major characters? I see them all the time in the book AND on the show. I do not know why we decided not to port them into Series 7. Lots of bad guys and different factions to represent. Hopefully they will fit into a future series or set. Window is open.

Gabe and Bruce were part of a storyline before Rosita and Gabriel even appeared, and they made pretty regular appearances until they got shot. I'm glad they did them.

i dont see a way gabriel and rosita could fit in this wave or any other future waves as these characters have played such a minor role in the story after their introdution

I'm happy to have Gabe & Bruce.

But I didn't know their names until we got the Minimates.

Not having Father Gabriel feels incomplete, and that's nothing compared to the feeling of having an incomplete trio without Rosita.

I know it's not yours or DST's faults, Zach.

It just sucks that their fate feels up in the air, and when Toys'R'Us was also (seemingly) responsible for us not completing our movie Warriors Three (I don't want comic versions, I want movie versions to match the Volstagg I already have), it makes me scared that we might not get them at all.

I'm with you, except for the Warriors Three. They should make BOTH versions so everybody's happy. :)

Oh, no, I whole-heartedly agree!

There's just been a lot of anti-movie sentiment, especially considering Fandral & Hogun, and getting the comic versions but not the movie versions too would leave me pretty disappointed.
