I won't be able to make the sticker kit without seeing the movie first. There is definitely not enough material in the trailers. The sticker kits will ship later. And if you only buy one set now, and decide you like the sticker kit later, you can always buy that 2nd set later to get the kit.

I don't have a master list, but Korath will be included in this kit.

Sounds good Luke, just put in my order!

Luke, can I suggest a comic book version of Ayesha, also known as Her and Kismet?  I personally am interested in her look when she appeared in the Quasar series, which was a takeoff on Adam Warlock's '70s look.  Here's a decent image of her, from the old Marvel Handbook:

It looks better with a cape.

I would like to gear this kit towards the 2nd movie mostly, but she should be a quick one to include. :)

I think kraglin would be cool, and shouldn't be much more than an alternate decal for the torso on yondu and face decal + zangiefs mohawk, also angrier faces for gamora, drax ( not technically in the specialty series but still) and nebula would be amazing

The turnaround time on this wave is really kind of amazing. We just saw the last two figures from this wave at Toyfair, and they are already shipping.  I've long been critical of DST for not having product on the shelves when a movie is opening, so this is a welcome change that I hope is a sign of things to come.

Good ideas!

More Ravagers in general would be great.

Agreed.

For retailers this is a huge improvement. I know it isn't always feasible, but I am very happy to see it in this case.

Is the accompanying TRU wave hitting soon?

I was also wondering when TRU wave would hit. Usually it's the other way around. Hopefully by the end of the month.

I got my wave today, I'm really bummed that Mantis has bad paint apps on her antennae.  I would have taken either style, but having each side done differently looks goofy to me.

I picked up half of this wave today (Star-Lord & Yondu and Gamora & Rocket). My thoughts:

-Star-Lord is well done, especially his jacket piece. The face is a lot better than the last one, but the likeness is still a little off. Also, the hair in the helmet doesn't look right (which isn't an issue unique to this figure, but it's present none the less).

-Yondu is great too, especially the likeness and mohawk. My only issue is that his coat is a very different colour than the rest of the minimate, and it doesn't seem to be intentional.

-Gamora is my favourite so far, with one of the best likenesses and no paint issues.

-Rocket's head sculpt is fantastic, and the short legs are better than expected, but he really needs the smaller chest block. It looks so much better. Was his gun cut?

Does the Star-Lord helmet come off easily? The animated version I got gets severely stuck on his head.

Mine is jammed on very tightly. I've frozen and boiled it with no success.

My Rocket came with a big honkin' gun. You shouldn't be able to miss it.

The gun rocket is holding comes with tazerface and gamora is holding rockets gun, i guess whoever set that up at toyfair mixed somethings around, probably because of that scene in the trailer where gamora has that giant gun( but it's definitely not that gun)

The one Gamora's holding in the toy fair picture, right? My right-handed bias meant that I couldn't get him to hold it at first, but I figured it out. And now I'm seeing that Rocket's "missing" gun comes with Taserface, so I guess whoever set up the display just gave it to the wrong character.

As great as these look together, it's making me worry about the exclusives. I really wish TRU Canada would carry minimates...

One other comment: Baby Groot is incredible, but he could stand to be a slightly darker brown.

EDIT: Thanks, FTD118!

Yeah, the one Gamora's holding is sculpted for Rocket's left shoulder. The grip is specifically angled to match his non-articulated wrist. It fits great.

My bad, I set it up without checking. Even though we show up a couple of days in advance, the work that needs to be done on the booth itself and the sheer number of products means that I usually only have time to check on the pairings I don't remember/know.

Hey Luke, how about a Rocket chest sticker that will fit the child size Itsy Bitsy Spider-Man Body or Howard the Duck body?

I could definitely do that.

It's not bias, it's character-accurate. He is right handed in the movie. But most of the toys (especially Hasbro's) are left handed. It drives me crazy.
