Mass Effect Minimates

Recommended Posts

While Miranda is my biggest want we would definitely need more than her to make the line feel somewhat complete, especially with so many team members and army builders left. Also, I need an Elcor Hamlet.

But what about that... one guy... I know nothing about mass effect.

I have no idea who those characters are and, based on the way the line looks already, I'm sure I need them.

I keep hearing about a specialty box set, but I do not know the timeline. We designed a bunch of figures.

As long as they're not a Gamestop exclusive again. My hookup died (not literally, lol, he just doesn't work there anymore). confused.gif

I'm just eager to know when. I hope the time frame doesn't make this fizzle. And if it's a 4 pack boxset, that leaves many fan favorites potentially out. I had suggested to Luke about him making decal sets to create certain characters, but we'll just have to wait and see. Zach is there a chance at this point the set never makes it out since the figures ended up being liquidated at GameStop?

Of course, there is a chance we may never release more, but I have no idea, I only know that a box set has not been solicited yet. Of course, even if we solicit it, orders may not pan out at comic shops. Fairly certain Gamestop is not interested in more figures, but I only assume that because I have not seen a new assortment put into production.

Sorry, GMonkey, but the retailers are the life support now. Set is in the next Previews, and retailer orders will say whether it goes forward. Once the retailers have it, and customers can see what the figures look like, then hopefully it will find a wider audience than it did in video game stores, and PL will stop going on about it.

Woo! Now if those replacement parts from DST could get here already! The CC lady was super helpful, but it's been a month+ since she sent them and I still haven't received them. Anybody else had such delays with their CC packages?

Well, I had a 2 or 3 week "conversation" and then on 27/7 I was informed that they had been sent a while ago. I still haven't received anything. Me, I needed: A new arm and hand for Ashley (the peg broke inside), a new Shepard head (misprinted) and a new Liara chestblock (parts of the design were missing).

Well, I had already gotten another offer a while before. I'm not faulting anyone though, I'm grateful for any kind of help, shit happens either way. I have tons of mates (from Luke, Ebay, other stores) that eventually presented problems. Especially the ones I really like...

Not gonna happen.

Introducing a product to a new market that the end consumers are unfamiliar with and can't see will forever go down in history as the worst decision in the history of Minimates if not toys ever. It's like pitching a lamp to someone who has no idea whatsoever what a "lamp" is but hoping they'll give it a try because you put a picture of a lampshade on the packaging and say the word "Lamp" three times. Oh, and it's a Mass Effect lamp! Yippee!

The only way the packaging could have been worse is if it did physical harm to whomever touched it. Like, make it out of sandpaper and leprosy.

Let's just say it's not that they decided something bad they just, overlooked it.

Frankly I hope the new box set is blind like some of the old marvel sets and doesn't have any pics at all on it. I want it to fit in with my blind bags.

And if retailers say no, can us unwavering fans still directly purchase in limited quantities? It had to be time and cost consuming for Turian, Krogan, Asari, and even Quarian molds. To only get one use would be a travesty. You guys can't just let those molds go to waste. Not without Grunt. Or Miranda. Or Zaeed. Or Saren. Or Admiral Zaal'Koris vas Qwib Qwib

Grunt and saren would both need different molds. Sarens head at least would .

Those of you waiting on Customer Service replacement parts, are you in the U.S. or international? I'm asking because my Alien parts were sent via regular US mail which takes longer than priority service. Something to keep in mind if you're outside the U.S. unless they told you they were sending them any particular way.

Personally I'm outside the U.S., but still, almost 2 months seems like a long time.
