Avengers MODOK Minimates?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else see this and immediately think of our favorite plastic addiction?
 

Might be a nice gateway drug for another retailer.

Ugh.  While I'm down for whatever could help sustain the brand, I gotta say, all those costumes look terrible.  Overly complicated, too 'realistic', and muddled; Personally I'd prefer an inspired-by wave than sacrificing a wave to these crummy designs.  Besides, we all know what would happen: It'd be six figures, ultimately some important character would be left out, and then everyone would complain.

Thems my two cents.

That would be pretty cool!

...The Minimates, not the complaining.

Yes!!! Pitch the idea to DST! And like funk said, ‘inspired by’ wave like the wave 77 Spider-Man FFH inspired wave would be awesome!

There's no avoiding the complaining. I'd argue an "inspired by" assortment would just give us even more of what we already have and eat into the specialty market. (Again.) Let's be honest; most of us could throw together an "inspired by" wave today.

If the designs are based on the game, it could be as exclusive to that big box retailer as Marvel Animated is to Walgreens. No one is stepping on anyone else's toes, new collectors are brought in thanks to a presence in the mass market, and veterans like us can still pick and choose what we want.

Not knowing how many characters are in the game, this could go on for a few waves if the first one sells through.

Legends has at least a few of those looks in the works/out in their gamerverse sub genre

Yeah, I ran across a Legends Cap the other day.  Seeing it in toy form didn't make the design any better.  Thing is, these designs, while I think they are overall on the crappy side, might benefit from the Minimate treatment.  The minimalism of minimates might tone down some of the details.  I dunno.  A Gamestop boxset would probably be pretty cool.

An inspired by wave would make alot of people happy just based on AIM army builders and a new abomination
