Black Panther Movie Minimates

Unfortunately, not everybody has the luxury of doing an exchange - limited distribution, short packed items, online purchases, etc.

Agreed. This was one of those rare circumstances where I could actually take it back to the retailer. Contacting DST for a replacement part was kind of a knee-jerk reaction thanks to their past, excellent customer service.

If you ever do not get a reply, write in again (to the CS address) and say this is your second attempt. I see everything, but unless someone mentions they did NOT get a response, I assume it is taken care of. Some older sets we do not have parts for (a lot we do), but we should have BP, unless there was an error at the factory.

Thanks, Zach. The last time I wrote in I did get a response but was told DST hadn't gotten inventory in yet. (One of my 'mates was missing an arm.) I just took it to TRU and exchanged it which, like I said, should have been my first recourse.

 

Say, I don't suppose DST would exchange three sets from TRU Series 23 with three sets from TRU Series 25, would they? ;)

Are we even sure that he doesn't cut his hair by the time he gets the costume? As someone said, all those dreads would be difficult to get under that mask

In the the trailer when he morphs he has the dreads pulled back, so maybe that's what they were going for. But the hairpiece doesn't really reflect that. Also they printed his ears on the head piece, so it's redundant to have ears attached to the hairpiece. I think the Netflix Punisher hairpiece will be what I use.

Saw BP tonight, it was great, I think they did a great job hitting the key characters with their lineup.

Agreed. The minimates have exactly everything I wanted from Black Panther. If only Hasbro and the gaming companies had taken the same approach lol.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I definitely want ML Klaue, Shuri, and tactical Killmonger.

I got the limited articulation Shuri, and she doesn't stand out too badly:

(The empty space behind Ant-Man is for Marvel Select Ant-Man to fill in the shrinking/growing sequence, and I really wish Hasbro had given us a roaring head & fists for Hulk.)

Yeah I think did a great job with the lineup. The only thing I would want is the Panther ritual fight versions of T'Challa and Killmonger.

Honestly, I'd like a Panther Ritual Fight version of M'Baku more than both. Mostly just because I want the Ape Mask... to make him just a LITTLE bit closer to a comic book version.

(Not that I wouldn't take T'Challa and Killmonger too)

The only figure I would switch out of the current lineup is Casino T'Challa so that's not bad. DST definitely did a good job.

Yeah, a box set for the ritual fights would be nice. Eric, T’Challa, M’Baku, Zuri. But otherwise, there are only 3 somewhat major characters missing and none are terribly essential.

I wish we had Ramonda and Zuri, but I can understand why they were omitted if someone had to get cut, I feel like they’re the only real holes in the lineup. This wave was what got me out of a ‘mate hiatus, so kudos to DST.

W’Kabi I would add to those 2. Maybe in a deluxe set with his

You’re right, I remembered him after I posted. They could also do T’Chaka as Black Panther and his older self, but I don’t feel like they’re a huge loss all things considered.

Welp, now I need a bunch of Nakias. Yay, troop building TRU exclusives, especially with TRUs shutting down.... :wallbash:

I actually found a buttload of them at the Golf Mill toys r us yesterday. And didn't buy any (I'm not much for army building). Looks like they got a few cases of Black Panther in. And Marvel toys are buy 1 get 1 50% off this week.

I kinda wish they had matching outfits... as for the moment... if you're a stickler for detail (and I am) you can really only army build with Nakia, leaving you... lots of excess Okoye. (But if you're not a stickler for detail, both work). That said, not that I blame Diamond or anything, it just is what it is.

I might buy another 2, since they're on sale this week, but I can't see myself going beyond that. 3 Dora is plenty for me, haha.

Also I might add we should have gotten one of T'Challa's more unique casual outfits instead of the casino tux, but I see why they made it.

If you're army building the Dora Milaje, I guess you can use the excess Okoye & Nakia heads for customs of them in their casino dresses.

I really liked what we saw of T'Chakas suit

and its lucky that Okoye comes with Nakia just swap  the heads for that nice bald Dora Milaje look

I was able to find the powered BP and Ross pack in my area. Is it just me or does powered up BP look more blue than the purple we see in the movie? At some angles and with the right lighting it looks kinda purple, but it mostly looks blue to me.
