Recommended Posts

And this is the thanks I get for supporting my LCS? Nothing? The stuff all hits TRU and mail order houses? Come on, DST, show your retailer base some love! (Cappy sobs in his beer...)

I'm hoping that mine show up today - unfortunately my set left L.A. on Monday and are getting to the SF Bay Area byway of Washington State (according to the tracking info).

Apparently this year the post office is offering Priority Mail minus the Priority.

And now this wave is a friggin pass. Come on DST; no tribbles for TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES Kirk?!?! That's just freaking stupid. :angry:

That wave itself doesn't actually look that good. The only thing i like as of now is the variant. In my opinion, they were better when it was waves 1-3 and only TOS characters were used. These just suck... :(

Just opinion, so no lynching me ST fans...;)

Too bad they changed Gul Dukat's face from the one in the promos, it seemed to fit the character better. The rest look pretty good, though I still don't care much for Decker and Ilia.

I was so focused on Kirk that I didn't even look at the Gul Dukat photo. You are right, the new face is much worse than the original one.

if these don't sell well people this could be the death of trek minimates, and if that happens i think i'd feel a bit cheated not getting the rest of the main crews and aliens :angry:

I think the sad fact is, these are more than likely the last wave of ST. I really can not imagine this wave selling that well

Much like the last wave of DC, it is a meh wave....only really maybe 2 must haves for star trek fans. and for a non fan (like me) it is an easy pass on all of them.

just my 2 cents.

I wish they had at least included one character each of the modern-era yellow and blue uniforms, so we could make the rest of the TNG and DS9 crews...

Yeah I gotta agree this unfortunately is the end of Trek mates. :(

Nothing new has been announced and some of the choices in wave 3-5 have really been poor. Decker, Ilia, McCoy with rolled up sleeves and too many lame kirk/spock variants. I sure hope they continue since TNG & DS9 are my favorite Trek shows and to only have 2 characters from each is very disappointing.

I understand not wanted to put all of the main characters out first in order to keep sales strong but I think the choices they made for lineups really hurt sales.

Come on trek mates!! I still need a Q, Borg Queen, movie versions of the rest of Kirk's deck crew, DS9 deck crew, TNG deck crew and about 20 different aliens.

Now, was Kirk ever billed as "Trouble With Tribbles" Kirk? I do believe he was described simply as "green shirt" Kirk.

I hope the Star Trek line continues, but it looks like it's time to move on to the newer Trek properties.

I'm gonna stand up for this wave, sure they have a spare Kirk that's not needed ( to us that is, Imagine being new to minimates and seeing these in stores and going... but I want a Kirk and there isn't one?) but they have moved on to give us TNG, DS9 and new movie characters so there is progress being shown.

I want to Stand up for Decker and Ilia Both nice mini's that are part of the Trek movieverse and a bold choice by DST. Yes you want more TNG & DS9 people and I do too, however dont you think that they learnt from marvel and are pacing the release of these characters? If they put everyone people want in 2-3 waves who is going to buy the 4th one?

If you ask me there are too many people here saying they won't buy them and then complaining this is the end of the line because they wont sell, where is your support for the line?

I'm with TBT on this one. No, these aren't the choices I would have made with some, but it fleshes out the line more. I believe DST said recently that Star Trek is the main line for their company-why would they stop with Minimates? Especially right when a new movie is focusing all sorts of mainstream media attention back on the Trek enterprise (pun intended). I will be suprised if this is the last we see of Trek Minimates. Star Trek will not become a 'SFII' line, in my opinion.

I don't think this is the last wave,(hoping!) when I asked my question to the art asylum thing they said we would be happy with what was planned for 2009....

Well I always buy the a full set each wave and sometimes extras as well even if I don't find the choices all that exciting. Hopefully the line will continue but minimates have a history of great things being planned but then never released (Batman Begins C3, DC wave 9/10, LOTR wave 3, SFII wave 2, Rocky 3, Apollo Uncle Sam 2pack, etc.

Yes I realize I'm being a complete and total downer :lol:

Being a downer is fine as long as it's not your only voice ;)

DC 9/10 ? did we ever see any thing for those?

Iron Cow (who was involved in the design process for DC minimates) posted on the RTM boards back when the line ended there were designs for wave 9/10 but they were never shown to the public.
