    wave 77

    This wave is amazing!
  3. Minimates definitely offers some obscure characters so if that’s your jam, you’ve found the right toy line! (Plus they don’t take up much space.) Welcome aboard!
  4. Hey there, first post on the board (outside of my intro) so figured I'd share my Wishlist. Since I love Ron Frenz/Tom DeFalco stuff, I went with the alternate time-line MC2 I figured 3-4 packs and a Build-A-Mate Thunderstrike & American Dream Spider-Girl & DarkDevil Stinger & Wild Thing Mainframe & The Buzz* Build-A-Mate: J2 I figured The top three packs would have the most overall appeal due to most characters having either their own Mini-Series or being very central to the books they were in. Mainframe and The Buzz are kind of the "Drop it if we only get three packs from now on" and while The Buzz is a weird pick, I didn't want to just pick one member of the Fantastic Five and leave out the others. Also, Stinger could have crossover appeal to 616 Universe due to Cassie becoming Stinger in the more recent Scott Lang series. And BAF of J-2 allows for the bigger pieces to be spread out over time. If I had my perfect world, I'd add a F5 boxset and call it a day.
  5. So I've been lurking around for like, a year, but then finally decided to join. I've be not been religiously collecting Minimates since the beginning, and wish I had, but started to get into them on a character basis. I'm a big fan of B-level (or lower) Marvel Characters, so the first minimate I got was actually of my favorite character Thunderstrike. I've been very happy to get characters like Silver Sable, Sandman, Alpha Flight, and others, and used to display my collection alongside my Trades, but my nephews started to knock them off the shelf and lose pieces, so now they wait for a higher shelf. Glad to be on the board, as this is such a great resource!
  6. Last week
  7. I suggested remaining thread to Walgreens minimates months ago...
  8. Very cool, Mattalica! I have been playing with my Vinimates! Trying to shoot my advance samples of the Halloween COmicFest variants.
  9. Nobody been playing with their vinimates of late?
  10. Yeah, they're probably hanging out with Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
  11. Yeah. It’s looking like my symbiote box is getting fuller. First-world problems.
  12. Between this, the Through the Ages set, and all the symbiote variants there's definitely enough to merit it. That, or split them up.
  13. Selects/IMG_6269__scaled_800.jpg Many of my Minimates are archived by character. Hulk gets a box, Cap gets a box, Spidey gets a box. Where am I supposed to put the Maximum Venom ‘mates? And should we retitle this thread to Walgreens Minimates?
  14. I think it depends on how you are defining confidence. We have to remember that we are a small niche community and there are other Minimate collectors that don’t engage with us and may actually be happy and not have any worries.
  15. If you include all the Best Of/Greatest Hits/TRU/Walgreens waves, Marvel Minimates are around 150 "waves" without counting any boxsets or convention exclusives. That seems like something a business would want to try and capitalize on, especially when confidence in the brand is at a low.
  16. Counting BAF waves, both existing and announced, and including exclusive BAFs (Wal-Mart Giant-Man wave, Fin Fang Foom wave, etc.), you get 68 BAFs. Plus 9 non-BAF TB waves, plus the Epic Heroes non-BAF wave, you get 78. ...If you include the Vintage waves, ML will be up to 81 once all of the announced stuff hits the market (spring of next year).
  17. Thinking more about this: it doesn't need to land this year, necessarily. Just brand the wave "80 Years of Marvel" and "Wave 80!!" Marvel Legends will soon pass up Minis, but right now no other Marvel toyline has gone this many waves before. It feels like something that should be celebrated.
  18. Not sure of date, I'll ask.
  19. I wonder if Beast comes with an XMen belt?
  20. Earlier
  21. I've been talkin to my local comic shop guy about minimates. Years ago he had the 24 set and i think an xmen set. Now he's startin to get vinimates. So im hopin whatever wave 80 may be, i hope the shop gets it.
  22. I know someone who has always bought 4 cases of every wave ,looks like he'll only require 3 cases now .
  23. It depends on how many sets retailers sell. My LCS typically sells two full sets from the one case they order. The other set lingers on the pegs until it sells. If they’re getting another set that may collect dust, it may not be worth it to order a full case if the LCS can only move half of it instead of 2/3. I guess we’ll see.
  24. We've only seen one three pack LCS wave. I wouldn't be surprised if that was standard going forward, but there's nothing to really say it will.
  25. Barring the packaging restrictions in the agreement, carded singles would be cool even beyond the 80th anniversary.
