  1. I wrestled from 2002 - 2017 and then switched over to managing. It was just taking longer and longer to recover from matches as the modern style continued to push the envelope with more of a focus on crazy new moves and less on psychology. I had 2 WWE try-outs back in the day but didn't get picked up either time. It was still pretty dominated by big guys up until a few years ago. (Nowadays it seems like EVERYBODY in the locker room is my size, haha!) I was never a huge star or anything but I got to wrestle in 5 countries and to share the ring with lots of world champions and Hall of Famers. Most people I've talked to at shows say this is their favorite match of mine:
  2. [Waves!] As a guy with 20 years of pro wrestling experience I'd be THRILLED with any AEW Minimates or classic WWE Minimates. They've done WWE M.U.S.C.L.E. figures and knock off WWE Minimates in the past so I think they'd be down for official Minimates.
  3. I am beyond excited! MMPR and Mortal Kombat were always high up on my wanted Minimates list. I haven't bought any Minimates in about 3 years now but these would definitely get me back on board.
  4. I haven't bought any Minimates in probably about 3 years now but I would definitely buy Transformers and GI Joe Minimates.
  5. Does anyone have a purple Donnie laying around? I've been after that one for years now. ?
  6. Is there a way to do a member search on here?
  7. I noticed that there was a new end cap in the toy department at a local Target that had a bunch of Entertainment Earth exclusive figures. One of the things hanging on the peg was one of the Big Bang Theory box sets. It ring up $14.99 on one of the price checkers.
  8. I just can't imagine Rocketeer Minimates doing well if 80's TMNT and Bruce Lee couldn't get enough collector interest.
  9. we know how cool MOTU Minimates would be!
  10. But...Hasbro makes Marvel figures too and we have Marvel Minimates. Or was Toy Biz still in charge of Marvel back when Marvel Minimates started and they were grandfathered in?
  11. Those were cancelled. They're only doing the Bruce Lee Vinimates now.
  12. Yeah, it sounds like the Sonic line is already dead.
  13. So what is the issue with Star Wars Minimates? Does LEGO have a stronghold on that license?
  14. Sonic may have more characters...I just think Mario has more recognizable characters. I'm pretty sure if I were to survey my middle school students that most of them would be able to identify ALL of the Mario characters while they would probably know Sonic and maybe would know Tails, Knuckles or Eggman.
  15. You're definitely right about that! I still have that entire Jakks line. I think the only figure they didn't make was a Clubber Lang in blue. There are multiple looks for each character though (street, training, pre-fight, post-fight, etc.) which should be plenty for at least a box set from each movie or multiple waves. I didn't even know Minimates existed back when the original Rocky stuff was released.
  16. I always preferred Sonic over Mario as a kid but I'm pretty sure all of the Mario characters are way more recognizable than any of the Sonic characters and you could get a lot more mileage out of that license. It's definitely interesting to see how these licenses play out. I would've never guessed that Nightmare Before Christmas would get as many sets as it did while something like 1980's TMNT or Bruce Lee couldn't even make it to production. I think these would work for well for tentpoles (some are never going to happen like you mentioned though): * Nintendo * Mortal Kombat * Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers * Star Wars * DC * He-Man * GI Joe * WWE * Harry Potter You can probably get a least a box set or wave of 2-packs out of these: * Indiana Jones * Austin Powers * James Bond * Rocky * Horror (Freddy, Jason, etc.) * Princess Bride * Goonies * Home Alone * Die Hard * Jurassic Park * Warriors * Gremlins * Rambo * Dumb & Dumber * Ace Ventura * The Neverending Story * Karate Kid * Dark Crystal * Labyrinth * Captain Planet * Tick * Kick-Ass * Dick Tracy
  17. are right on the money. I always thought a Mortal Kombat or a Power Rangers line would also be great for Minimates. I think it would be a great idea for DST to try and jump on stuff before it blows up. As a teacher, I had students talking about Minecraft, Roblox and Fort Nite at least a full year before clothes and toys started showing up in stores.
  18. I think Minimates are sold at Walgreens and through Luke's and that's about it. I buy a lot of my action figures from Gamestop and Think Geek since Toys R Us shut down. I'd love to see Minimates make their way back there. (I think at one point there were blind bags sold there of a videogame license that I wasn't familiar with .) I would definitely like to see new licenses and new retailer outlets. I was really disappointed when the 80's TMNT and that Bruce Lee set were scrapped.
  19. 100% agree. My first memories of Minimates date back to seeing the LOTR figures and the DC C3 stuff at Media Play. I eventually went all in and started collecting these back in 2006 with Marvel 13. I have a huge collection after 13 years. I love these things as much as everyone else on here but I've noticed my Minimates purchases have greatly decreased over the past two years which is probably not a good sign if other hardcore collectors have been slowing down too.

  21. So, that first comment was directed at me. I have to disagree with you on that in that I do think it adds something to the conversation. Look, I love Minimates and I've been collecting them for's just getting harder and harder to justify buying them. I never said anything about wanting Minimates to die but personally it's a little annoying to have to buy an entire wave just to get the few figures that I'm actually interested in. Especially now that you can't even find these in stores and you have to pay additional shipping costs on top of having to purchase two sets instead of just one. We're talking what...almost $25 after it's all said and done for two figures that are maybe slighter better versions of figures I already own? I feel like X-Men fans aren't necessarily X-Factor fans but X-Factor fans are probably X-Men fans so you can get away with different pairings and probably sell even more sets since the people that just want the X-Men characters could just buy the set they want and then the X-Factor fans would still buy an entire wave anyways to build their precious Strong Man.
  22. Nice! I'm glad to see an army builder set that people are excited about. Hopefully they sell well and this is something that we can get more of in the future!
  23. Cyclops & Havok Jean Grey & Polaris Beast & Wolfsbane Archangel & Multiple Man BAF Strong Guy This is an easy pass for me, unfortunately. I would've bought Beast & Archangel if they were packaged together in one set but I don't really think the old ones I already own need updates enough to buy two more 2-packs. Meanwhile Marvel Legends has been absolutely killing it with their figures (especially X-Men).
  24. The 80's TMNT line had me super excited about Minimates again. The Bruce Lee set had me excited about Minimates again. I didn't really buy a whole lot of Minimates for myself in 2018. I've bought 0 so far in 2019 and it's looking like that might not change.
