  1. Past hour
  2. I actually am most interested in Jane Foster Thor movie and the Strange Multiverse one. If I had to choose one figure it would have to be Shang-Chi in his original look from the comics. That one not a Black T shirt one not a red an black jumpsuit one....The Original One! Ok DST You got years before this hits screens more then enough time to get on the ball.

    wave 79

    PS. I'm mildly concerned at the fact only 7 figures are shown for this wave (and Ghost Rider potentially noted as a build a figure?)... instead of the 9 figure format of the past few waves (8 + Build a figure) Or even the 7 or 8ish format of old (7 + a duplicate, or 7 + an army builder, or even just 8...) Is the line scaling back? Are we only getting 3 two-packs at specialty now? If so that makes me sad. Or is pack #4 just not ready to show off yet? Any insight at the panel?

    wave 79

    No offense intended to his fans, but I personally don't know or care enough about Darkhawk to be concerned by how his helmet is realized. I'm not gonna lie here, Cosmic Marvel has really never been my favorite cup of tea, so I really only have a casual knowledge of the biggest headliners. I could write you an encyclopedia on Mutants, and at least provide a few reasonable notes about Avengers or the Spiderverse... but... Space Marvel is not my area of expertise. THAT SAID... like any good comic nerd, I've been watching the MCU form in its entirity for the past 10 years, and like many, I'm a big fan of the Guardians movies. I'm also a giant Disney Parks fan, so the fact that they're currently the only Marvel Property with a Disney ride makes me love the movie team a little bit more. SO... Not gonna lie. I was one of the many supporters saying for years, "We need a comic book Guardians wave!" ... but I admit, when I said that... I just meant I wanted a version of the movie team I could display alongside my other comic book minimates. So this Gamora works. Perhaps this Star-Lord. But the rest of this wave is... admittedly not what I'd hoped for. I'd have greatly preferred comic versions of Groot, Drax, Rocket & Mantis (maybe even Nebula) over 2/3 of this wave... ideally all 6 of them in the red & blue uniforms. Honestly, the Adam Warlock & Angela minimates we have already do me just fine for those two. I'm mildly aware of Moondragon & Darkhawk, but as I said... don't know enough about either to really get excited about them. I had no idea Cosmic Ghost Rider was even a thing before I started reading this thread here today.

    The curse of doing a modern comic set of toys is that the costumes are outdated by the time they hit retail in most cases. Minimates seems to be the exception, but I don't know that Gamora will still be in that get-up and Moondragon already isn't if the pic above is accurate. I'm okay with the assortment. Not disappointed, not excited... just whelmed. And I do not suffer from helmet-gate. I don't personally think there needs to be much in the way of detail for Minimates. I kind of love it when they're simple.
  7. Well this might be it. I thought I was out, but between Jason's semi regular encouragement and this year's announcements at SDCC ... I might just be back.
  8. Yesterday
  9. I *get* it? 🤷🏻‍♂️ I am just happily fine not owning yet another Spider-Man from a mediocre movie. I’m happily ready for Black Widow and the hopefully two chest version of Red Star I’ll get.
  10. Don't get me wrong I like the wave we got instead of Far From Home more than I probably would've liked Far From Home minimates but like... even so it's a gap. A gap that I'll always know is there. Taunting me. Staring into my soul. It just seems like such a natural point to cut myself off and never touch MCU again. Because I'll always know that "Damn there's that one movie they never actually bothered to make Minimates for and it would've gone right [points between Endgame and Widow] here in the collection." I dunno I may be crazy but that's just my thought process about continuing minimates for the MCU. Hell if all they made was a two pack of Advance Suit Spider-Man and Mysterio I'd call FFH represented, but having nothing from the movie just seems... wrong.
  11. Taskmaster and Red Guardian for Black Widow Blade Just the bit of info we got for Strange sounds dope And then more Thor is good! Hopefully we get Korg and battle suit Valkyrie As far as the shows, Hawkeye as well as Falcon and Winter Soldier are really exciting! And the What If series could be, IF it includes a way for us to get alternate looks or characters we haven't gotten yet. I really hope DST picks up all of these because I'm still super stoked for the MCU.

    wave 79

    A cosmic wave! So freaking cool. I know a lot of people have been asking after this for a while. I'm excited to see it happen. Does anyone have a clearer pic from the panel? I'd love to get a better look at that Ghost Rider and Gamora.

    wave 79

    Am I seriously the only one not pissed by this helmet gate?
  14. Taika Waititi returning and Valkyrie's sexuality actually being present in the film is exciting for Thor 4, even if Jane Foster coming back isn't. I'm a bit worried for Guardians 3 after Endgame, but I'm glad James Gunn is back. I really hope they don't try to keep the franchise going without him. Seeing Star Wars and the MCU as they stand being branded as "The Skywalker Saga" and "The Infinity Saga" is kind of bothering me. I guess if Disney won't let these series end I'll just have to check out on my own. Between Episode 9 and a hiatus for one, and the end for the characters who started the other, now seems like a pretty good time. Maybe Disney X-Men will be good.

    wave 79

    Getting a sculpted helmet for Darkhawk in Wave 79 would require a tooling budget, apparently Minimates budget has been redistributed to make more $40 PVC GameStop statues.

    wave 79

    Dst doesnt adhere to the old adage of "something worth doing is worth doing right or not at all" he wears a helmet with 3d projections on it not a slipover mask ala spiderman
  17. No, when I made my own custom I used a decal. I think a slip on helmet would make his head look too large. I’m happy with what I see. 🥰
  18. Eternals and Shang-chi, I want a real MCU Mandarin.
  19. I’m really in the minority as I actually agree with skipping far from Home.
  20. I personally still wanna cut off my MCU collection with Endgame since they skipped Far From Home and I’ll never feel complete without it if I keep going but like... Shang Chi and Strange May just have me.
  21. Why are we talking about wave 79 in this thread?
  22. Distribution is a huge area of concern. Sure Walgreens is a larger retailer but that they haven’t done their own is just head scratching. I can’t imagine how in 2019 they still don’t have this sorted.
  23. I meant easy in the sense of they are no brainers and they are already creating pieces for them therefore they have the relationships. Sadly, I really do feel that DST is not as focused on Minimates as they have been.

    wave 79

    You couldn't imagine a helmet instead of a print on a regular head? The list of people who want a Darkhawk minimate more than me is awfully short but DST cheaping out on one of the most important parts of the character's look has severely damaged my interest in the figure.
  25. i know ive said this before but I dont think Licenses are Minimates biggest problem at the moment, its the lack of outlets selling minimates that is the real issue. Dst screwed over the comic stores and thus they dont carry them, Refuse, for some reason, to set up any kind of online sales entity, and cant get into walmart/target, and with TRU gone that leaves Walgreens and even if they could get their act together they couldnt support more lines by themselves
  26. DC CW and Young Justice are definitely not "easy licenses" for DST, at least not for minimates.
  27. Not going to lie I’m buying one for my Danger Room display
  28. Agreed. Comics just aren’t doing the numbers that they were back in the day. I do think that nostalgia mining makes sense. Look at Hasbro giving us more AOA and tapping into the X-Men animated series. Also Super 7 keeps making me angry with their licenses. It’s like they hit the gold mine. And yes, I am willing to die on the hill that CW Arrowverse, Young Justice, Buffy, and Star Trek TNG are easy licenses that would boost the portfolio.
