Spider-Man: Far From Home

Recommended Posts

I believe the turnaround on things like this are about a year, so if it’s not happening now I think the ship has sailed, DST doesn’t always hit when the movie is in theaters but I think a gap this big would be even harder to overcome.

If it hits around the home video release or before the all-important holiday season, that's acceptable. Otherwise you have to wait ten years or so until it's retro.

Like Zach said, they simply don't have the license for it. It was separate from the rest of the MCU stuff, and their year is probably already stacked with a lot of Endgame-heavy merch. Couple that with trying to curb back on expenses probably due to their #1 buyer disappearing, maybe they just couldn't afford it.

I'm sure they wanted to make Spidey stuff, but it's not that they don't want to, it's that they can't at all. I don't think our outcry will make Chuck rethink a licensing deal, Zach's just trying to put a positive spin on it.

Just to be clear, all the MCU films require separate licenses. To your point, if DST is going to gamble on ONE Marvel property in 2019, it's going to be Endgame, especially if Walgreens at its 9,560 locations want to stock Endgame Minimates.

Looks like we got to change this thread to Spider-Man Far From Retail, bummer.  If he has a new suit for the third film, missing this crop of suits will activate the collector OCD of missing them.

If they are building up the Sinister Six then I think we have at least a chance to get a MCU Mysterio figure later. We skipped Spider-Man PS4, Into the Spiderverse and now Far From Home never thought that would happen.

If they're unable to make minimates for those reasons then minimates are already dead and we haven't figured it out yet.

Agreed it's why the pressure on DST should be for an online marketplace  or model like GiJoe/He-Man and also on Big Boxes like Walmart and/or Target or even DIsney to pick up the line in store because as much as I love the Walgreens team, I don't think they can keep this line afloat without "help".

Great job, Mattallica. Those look amazing, especially the Red & Black Spider-Man.

What chest piece did you use for Mysterio?

That looks slick.  Shame that we likely won't be seeing an official version for this suit.

Nice. And for a minute, I thought it looked like you’re using a Survivor Rick Grimes head as a MCU Quentin Beck head. Black suit Wolverine from The Wolverine movie series set?
