I have to say...I think I've jumped ship.... The last set of Minimates I bought was the Doppelganger/Venom pack.

For once I’m not jealous of the new legends (they are extremely well done) since we have most of what was shown already as Minimates.

except for Korg, I’m buying that and I want a minimate korg too.

This past weekend I went to a Walgreens after a long hiatus just to see what was there. Still no wave 8, 9 or 10. However I happily purchased a Marvel Legends Mystique and Genis-Vell for 13.99 each, leaving behind the Captain Marvel movie minimates.

Oh damn! Still trying to find Silver Surfer... Doesn't help that the closest Walgreens is ~30-40 minutes away 😂

I just noticed Mystique is on walgreens website for order at 13.99 also.

Well this might be it. 
I thought I was out, but between Jason's semi regular encouragement and this year's announcements at SDCC

... I might just be back.

That 3-pack might be good enough to overcome the annoyance that I have to buy three figures to get Jean.

Having not bought Cyke or Wolverine in those costumes from Habro, I'm ok with this 3-pack, but I can understand frustration from those who only recently purchased the Jim Lee Cyclops.

LOL yeah I hadn't thought of it that way. I think it's an Amazon exclusive? I want the set but will probably wait to see if it goes on sale or something.

Well, since they were exclusives to a defunct retailer, I guess one could say that they *sold* perfectly well for DST.

However the fact that we never got further full team boxsets after that retailer went tits up kind of tells the whole story.

It's a real shame too. I remember those sets fondly, as they were released at my first ever ComicCon. Getting to buy them when and where they were released was a bit magical.
They were pretty great sets too. a whole team available all at once. great pack-ins like the Puck handstand piece & the Northstar/Aurora hand holding piece. Alt white hair for the twins. Flight stands. Bulked up Sasquatch. Those sets were packed. DST may have over estimated the viability of the team to attract casual buyers, but for long time collectors and AF fans, these sets were golden!

Yeah, they were some of my favorite Minimate sets.

I'm definitely getting the ML set, though it sucks to have to get Puck all over again, there are no accessories, and Snowbird's blue is WAY too dark.

Powder blue shouldn't be that difficult, throw in a white owl, a purse for Shaman, and a hand-holding piece like Minimates have for Jeanne-Marie & Jean-Paul. Not like we're asking for the world, here, lol.
