I don't think redacted means cancelled? It just means they're not saying who's in it. I think. I hope.

Toy News International has their gallery up, but there’s no Endgame in sight. Actually, I don’t see a single Minimate on display. Maybe it’s because they’re having to share booth space with their new Gentle Giant stuff, but that’s not reassuring.

If we didn't get Minimates for Endgame and we're not getting them for Far From Home, I'd probably cry. Also, seems pretty dumb that the biggest Avengers movie yet is only getting as many spots as Captain Marvel got

Yeah, I'd get suicidal. I hate the way they are marketing Endgame.

We’re getting endgame stuff, we haven’t seen it yet because we’re not supposed to yet, we weren’t supposed to see any of this stuff from any companies yet, except for lego, I think they get special exceptions, I’ve heard march 31st rumored as the date companies can start revealing stuff and apparently thats also the street date for most things

They've made the right choice... 

But Marvel is annoying me with how secretive they're being... It was not wise on their part to annoy me.

Why? They gonna lose your $10's to see the movie out of the hundreds of thousands of dollars they are already going to make?

 

Chill out. Be patient.

Hundred thousand range? Try four more zeroes. Anyway, the money isn't my point. I'll still see it and buy all the toys because I'm a little bitch.

BUT.... it wasn't wise to annoy me because I will send them angry emails and instead of giving 9/10... I might give 8.5 or even 8.

Who does that help though? Rating something lower out of spite and out of context helps no one and just makes the people working on the project or the toys think that there is less interest and pushed the toyline closer to cancellation.

I'm talking about Avengers: Endgame reviews on imdb, my dude. I still support the toys hard af because they are awesome.

And I said hundred thousand range which applies to anything between 100,000 and 999,999. This is a pointless thing to argue about though and I don't want to, I'm just stoned out of my mind and getting pissed at Marvel for fucking with me.

I think Minimate is going for humor and he's not serious about this stuff he's saying. You guys are taking him seriously and he's having to explain himself and it's taking the joke away. I could be wrong though

When I was a kid, I saw this space movie back in 1977. It was really cool and ended up being pretty popular. I couldn't wait to buy the toys but there weren't any yet. I had to wait almost another year before the figures hit but when they finally did, it was pretty special.

Thanks, PL. Doesn't seem to be any patience in this new world. Just "gimme gimme gimme" and "me me me."

Didn't the same happen with the Captain Marvel mates? I don't even remember seeing official shots of the Captain Marvel mates. DST just slacks on the movie waves in that sense.

There was a whole press release with images sent out about Captain Marvel. It was on Marvel.com, our blog and numerous others. 

There will be one about Endgame when we are allowed to show them, nobody has officially revealed anything.

I understand that retailers want to take full advantage of the hype surrounding a film's release but there's something to be said for pent-up demand as well.

Also, I'd rather see a product line based on overall demand than one that's developed from speculation well before a film's release.

Sure, it's a safe bet that consumers who enjoyed the latest Spider-Man movie are going to want Spider-Man product based on his appearance in that film. But as an action figure collector, I'd rather wait and get a full assortment than miss out on characters like Rhino.

I honestly don't remember that for the wave. I do remember shots for the 4 pack. But I remember seeing the Walgreens wave showing up in stores before pictures were shown yet.

 

I assume you can't show anything till March 31st?

Apparently that's when Endgame merch is hitting shelves, so it makes sense.

Seems odd to not show anything until the merch is going on the floor though.

yeah, i remember all of us being surprised when they hit walgreens -- in fact, i remember asking someone to at least tell us the lineup since they couldn't post pics.  i think they hit earlier than expected.  i do remember the press release too but it was a few days after i'd found a complete set.

i'm trying to remember if infinity war was the same way.

i remember finding sets and not being able to buy them.  that sucked.  🤣

anyways, just take this as excitement on our end.

The first Infinity War series leaked on ebay a while before it was revealed, the second wave didn’t and took forever to pop up everywhere

I seem to remember the second wave was leaked from someone who found them and posted the line up also
