Seriously though - that hair sculpt is amazing, and it being a base that elevates her off the ground is exactly what i was hoping it would it would do. A+ 

I agree...the hair as a base is a very nice touch.

I was hoping they'd do something like Herald of Galactus Nova, with the alternate tip. This still looks really nice, though.

Amazing that DST can offer hair as a base without a license for wigs. Kinda like they can't offer Ghost Rider's motorcycle as a base without the vehicle license. Unbelievable.

I would posit that one is an extension of the character (her hair) where the other is a separate entity.

Amazing that someone could be so knowledgable on the fine points of negotiating licenses and not have his own wildly successful toy company. Maybe he does, and this is just concern trolling?

I'd go with concerned question ;) Nobody here really trolls.

Just an observation, boys. B)

 

If DST is going to give it a shot, now is the time to try getting a motorcycle-shaped stand through the approval process. Marvel Disney approves just about anything these days without much of a glance. Times have changed.

Then let's get that Vinimate license up in there. I need a Sentinel, Watcher, Giant Man, Devil Dino, and Galactus.

I'd go for that but I'd also settle for a 7" Minimate-styled Select Sentinel (or six) that's fully poseable.

Has anyone taken a photo of a Toy Biz Sentinel with a minimate?

I'm fairly sure someone did ......it might even have been me !  The BAF Sentinel & minimates work very well together . Luke also  did a superb diorama with a broken Maximate Sentinel some years back.

And there's a customizer that makes actual minimate sentinels that are superrrr badass

The Toybiz Blackbird works great with Minimates as well!

The TMNT Zpidey IS ridiculous. All those spider verse mates could have been stretched out to anchor several waves. Instead we start getting more and more ridiculous spider variants and a new green goblin. How is it Doc Ock from the show, who is a major villain over the series has been passed up? How about the rest of red skulls cabal? Walgreens should include more characters that appear often and havent had mates before instead of all these waves full of anchors.

And on that note... If agents of smash isn't available and we have access to 3 other animated shows, how in the F are we still not getting any more Guardians cartoon mates? All those characters...

I still have yet to start the Guardians cartoon (hadn't had time, and then my DVR started deleting episodes - I recently got all three seasons on Vudu, so hopefully soon), but I'd love more Minimates beyond just the team.
