  1. Today
  2. Just seen these are being done as part of Marvel Anniversary. The original Human Torch Minimate is one of my faves and these two funko's are cool.
  3. Honestly, I could see the black and red suit sticking around, especially if this is the suit that it looks like he's designing in the trailers.
  4. Yesterday
  5. Hey there: It's an easy kitbash. Basically I ordered a second set specifically for this. With the second set of X-Factor 90's Take Lorna's chest piece and put it on a Havok body add a blue eyed female face and blonde pony tail to get this: With the Havok chest piece, put it on Lorna's body add on a Quicksilver hear piece to get: Take the extra Wolfsbane and add human piece and a spare Rahne head to get her human form. For the three 80's X-Factor folk, Cyclops comes with an alternate head, you can kit bash Beast in his ape form taking the Secret Wars trunks and hair if you don't mind a different blue. Finally add a blonde hair piece to Jean and you have a Husk figure.
  6. Does anyone have a pic of Val Cooper in her X-Factor outfit? I'm remembering it as basically just being Polaris' but with Havok's rolled up sleeve arms. Am I remembering right?
  7. I'll be honest, I've never read the X-Factor books, but I just really enjoy the design of the figures and suits. Especially Madrox and Havok! I bought the wave, an extra Havok and Cyclops set, and 2 of the Madrox packs. I'd love to see Luke get army builder two packs. Hasbro started doing army builder packs and I'd really enjoy it if DST continued this! Hydra, AIM, random guards like the Civil War waves would all make great 2 packs.
  8. I came back to see how things are going. Nothing has really changed. Life’s to short to argue over nothing. I hope everyone is well. It was nice to see a few names are still active. Hey PL!
  9. Look I appreciate that there are distribution problems but I am exhausted with the narrative that minimates are dying. They have had far worse years. This deal with Luke is extremely positive and I really hope it sells out quickly to justify more deals like this in the future. I cannot wait for these toys to come out! I have wanted them for years and am thrilled to see them. It’s also the first poseable Jean in her red costume ever!
  10. Back in MY day, the chase figure was snow.
  11. You know, back in MY day, an assortment only had seven different Minimates, one of them was a chase figure, and the duplicate wasn’t an army-builder. This wave has NINE characters and our favorite retailer is getting a complementary army-builder 2-pack at an affordable price. You whipper-snappers are spoiled!
  12. That's a pretty weak point considering how hard they are to find at any Walgreens. They may be top 20 in overall sales but that ranking wasn't earned on the merits of how they handle minimates. Their distribution is terrible at best. To the point of the thread, I ordered a set and the extra Multiple Man 2 pack. I can't wait to see them in September! While I normally don't feel the need for multiple Madrox, having 3 for this grouping of the 90's team feels right. Plus I wanted to support the exclusive 2 pack in hopes of getting more in the future. Looking forward to more comic waves!
  13. Can we please remember that they are in Walgreens which is one of the top 20 retail outlets?
  14. Last week
  15. I can understand not liking that decision, but it's not really a dick move. It's an incentive to buy the whole wave. So is the BaF, which would mean you'd have to get the whole wave for the 90's team anyway, and that's the main incentive. Wave 60 was the same, one group's members are much more obscure than the other, so packing them together helps to anchor it. I think I'll probably just get Beast and Wolfsbane, Hank's bigger and more feral-looking than I'd like but I'm glad to get a good classic-ish Beast.
  16. I just want DST to know that I don’t like this method of packaging the waves. I don’t wish them any ill will. I’m not insulting anyone. But MAYBE the next time they are discussing how to package the wave, someone MIGHT say “Yeah, some people don’t like it when we do it that way”. And that’s all I ask. I don’t know if you’ve realized this, but the way they packaged these figures forces me to spend double on a single team that I want and I end up with a handful of figures that I don’t want. I was not planning on buying the set. With that said, I’m a sucker for army building and @luke314pi exclusive set changed my mind because I want to support the army builder two pack idea. The wave looks great. I love minimates. I’m happy for X-Factor fans. But I still think it’s a shitty marketing decision. And considering several people share my opinion and are talking about it, it obviously adds something to the conversation.
  17. If people are truly worried about negativity they have one really great option: Post something positive. Make the kinds of comments you want to see instead of worrying about policing other's.
  18. I haven't been able to get any of the new figures, but I've seen them all in the wild and they look fantastic. Between Two-Face, Grey Ghost and Scarecrow I have no idea which one I'd pick up first. I think it'd be really cool to see some more episode-centric packs similar to Etrigan & Klarion or the Girl's Nite Out set.
  19. I love Peter David's earliest X-Factor issues so I'm very excited to get these. Hopefully I can preorder one of Luke's Jamie 2-packs. I could never get into his post 2000's stuff. I kinda lose interest in the X-Men post-Claremont. ....and then pick it back up again with Joss Whedon.
  20. I get what you’re saying and no one is saying you can’t have an opinion and voice said opinion. I think the point that @hellpop was making is that there’s a whole lot of negativity in almost every thread. It’s been kind of a bummer, and any time someone says that the atmosphere is negative they get a comment about complaining about complaining. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if the opinion isn’t popular. But this is a community. A community of people who share a common passion. A community should care about everyone’s feelings and not just their own. I try not to shit on someone else’s opinions because I don’t want someone to shit on my opinion. Just some common courtesy goes a long way. If everyone in the world would just be more considerate and treat people how they want to be treated the world would be a much better place. My comments are not directed at any specific person, I have no one in mind during this tirade, it’s a general plea to not let negativity reign supreme and squash someone else’s good time.
  21. Abso-fuckin-lutely! if you're looking to blame anyone for the decline/killing of the line look no further than DST themselves, and its easy to put it all on the loss of Toysrus but Dst has to take the blame for that by putting all (or most) of their eggs in one basket
  22. I just realized that we now have no news to look forward to until SDCC...
  23. It adds about as much as passive aggressive whining about those comments. There is actually a worthwhile conversation that could be had about perceived value per pack or in the wave as a whole that goes far beyond "nitpicking", so why not discuss it? Personally I think buying a two-pack to get one character is pretty much the standard a minimate collector should expect for value but I can understand why others might feel differently. The build-a-minimate approach changes that too since each individual character is likely losing a little bit of value to make up for the extra figure. DST also chose to pack this wave in a way that would maximize their sales but also force people to buy two different teams which could obviously be a source of frustration for some, though I'm a little surprised anyone would want one half of the wave and not the other. Still, any fan ought to be able to express their opinion about what they want to buy without "you're killing the line!" nonsense.
  24. Wow dude, you sure put me in my place. Saying things like "I don't like these pairings so I'm not buying them" adds nothing to the conversation. But sure, if you want Minimates to die, keep nitpicking.
  25. I picked up Grey Ghost at my LCS. Still want to get the rest of that wave. As for JLU, I’m still convinced DCC will offer them again with accessories. I’ll wait patiently. If I’m wrong... oh well.
  26. I’ll be surprised if there’s room for extra arms. We may have to resort to borrowing a pair from Polaris.
  27. I really hope this exclusive sells out quickly! I am so excited for these figures!
  28. Asking about the possibility of alt arms isn't complaining...
