Comic-Con 2015 Exclusives Speculation

Recommended Posts

So it's probably a big early for this, but over the weekend I just finished reading this:

superior-foes-of-spider-man-now-issue-1.

And MAN would this make for a cool exclusive. You'd obviously have to cut one of them, since there's five members of the Sinister Six; I'd go Boomerang, Beetle, Overdrive and Speed Demon, since Shocker wasn't as... involved with the team throughout the run, and there's already a shocker figure to sub in a pinch. Throw in the head of Silvermane, maybe a corgi, and you've got yourself a box set!

I know it's probably a long shot, but I could see this set doing well with a comic con crowd that goes for the more offbeat, like the Deadpool sets. Heck, CM Punk likes this book! You could get CM Punk into Minimates!!!!

Any other exclusive suggestions (he asks, knowing full well this thread is about to be taken over by Moon Knight Through the Ages suggestions...)?

We already have a good Shocker. My concern would be the lack of popularity with the other four. Maybe its a moot point though.

Uh, let me think......MOON KNIGHT THROUGH THE AGES!

Seriously though, I'd absolutely LOVE a Superior Foes 4-pack. You could release a Shocker/Living Brain 2-pack in a Spidey wave later down the line to complete the team. As for other suggestions, well, here's what I'd like to see:

1)Illuminati: Namor, Black Panther, Beast, Doctor Strange

2)GotG: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, poseable Rocket (movie Groot is fine as is)

3)Ultimates: Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Wasp, Ant-Man

4)Bondage-Men: Magik, Emma, Cyclops, Magneto

5)2099: Spider-Man, Doom, Punisher, Ghost Rider

Last year's was a tie-in to the DOFP movie. That didn't seem to do very well. (It should have been a complementary set to add to the movie assortment but... other_beatingA_DeadHorse.gif )

So I'd rule out Fantastic Four, Ant-Man, or Avengers tie-ins.

That leaves a Spider-Man or X-Men set, given their popularity. And since we got an X-Men set last year, there's a better chance DST will shake things up and offer a Spider-set, possibly to coincide with Spider-verse.

I'm going with Web Warriors:

Spider-Man

Spider-Man Noir

Iron Spider

Spyder-Knight

(Or Moon Knight Through the Ages. That'd be friggin' awesome.)

My "out of left field" guesses:

Promos:

- Translucent purple Donatello

- Translucent red Raphael

- Translucent black ALIEN Big Chap

Boxsets:

- Big Bang Theory main cast in Star Trek costumes

- Avengers AoU/Ant-Man "fan service" tie-in boxset: Ultron-5 (Classic Ultron redo with Crimson Cowl parts, Classic Vision redo, Goliath (red/yellow/blue costume), Wasp (red/yellow costume), Jarvis parts (ala Senator Kelly in DoFP)

- Walking Dead B&W Negan, Jesus, Abraham, Carl

- Spongebob & Squidward in Krusty Krab hats 2-pack

Since when didn't the DOFP set do well?

There's gotta be an Avengers boxset of somekind, due to AOU.

Also, Walking Dead boxset, Translucent TMNT and Predator

Jay & Silent Bob (Zombie 2 pack)

If those are the "superior" enemies of Spidey, then I would hate to see the inferior ones!

That's part of the point. You should check out the comic.

We're doing two one-packs, one two-pack, two four-packs and a five-pack.

Two of those are exclusive to other retailers.

No TWD set this year.

One is not a traditional Minimates release.

Promos TBD.

Curious about the "not" traditional Minimates Minimates. . .but I'll ignore that for the purpose of rampant speculation:

One packs:

-ALF

-Jack Kirby

Two pack:

-Nighthawk/Hellcat

Four packs:

-The Beatles

-Frightful Four (original version)

Five pack:

-Husker Du + Hall and Oates

Sounds like a good year to be at SDCC IMO.

In fairness, the writing has been on the wall about the Husker Du/Hall and Oates set for quite some time. I'm just connecting the dots.

Of all bands, why Husker Du and Hall and Oates? Just curious. I'd be down for a Bob Mould Minimate.

Because they're awesome. And that jerk Jordan won't allow his likeness rights to be used for a New Kids on the Block (Figure) set.

I'm going to guess that the 5 pack is Spinal Tap.

It's really just a 3 pack that goes to 5.

Ha! Seriously though, two of their drummers shouldn't be a problem, with alternate dead expressions/bodies/accessories. Maybe the Stonehenge Leprechaun? Edited by karamazov80

Stumpy and Stumpy Joe could just be intentionally empty tray slots.

You need Mick Shrimpton and the keyboardist (his name escapes me) to accurately capture the band at the time of the movie. Accessories must include Nigel's double necked guitar, Derrick's pipe, and a Stonehenge triptych. Oh, and an all black record, of course.

And a tiny cucumber wrapped in tiny tinfoil.
