  1. It'd be great to have *anything* to the Hasbro license, maybe a Gi Joe/Transformers box set with variants of Duke, Cobra Commander, Optimus, and Megatron? I just think DST needs to do something to show off their new product.
  2. Starting a box set with some big characters is good, but I think what most people are looking for is confidence in the brand instead of a "wait and see" approach to Minimates. I think some folk would be more likely to pre-order one set knowing that it'll be a full range instead of a one-off set. Even just a few sneak peaks here and there at an upcoming figure would be cool. Hasbro does that from time to time, releasing a pic of a figure that's part of an upcoming wave and then later revealing what the full wave is.
  3. Netting Hasbro as a distributor for these would be huge, and I think they could really help push the line into a greater spotlight. Would getting these up on Hasbro Pulse be an option? Obviously I got mine from Luke but I think there’s a lot of Joe fans who would probably pick these up with the rest of their Pulse orders.
  4. I like the idea of a 4-pack of 2 or 3 troopers and a named character that could become a generic character using extra parts. Like, having a Duke undercover in Cobra disguise (idk I don't know Joe very well) with an alternate generic trooper head, or something like that. That way DST could still sell the set on an anchor character while still appealing to army building fanatics
  5. Happy birthday, Luke! You’re a shining beacon of hope in this hobby.
  6. It’s gotta have Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander or Storm Shadow in series one. Maybe... Snake Eyes/Scarlet/Storm Shadow/Destro? And then we get a con exclusive box set of GI Joe VS Transformers with Duke/Cobra Commander (with Megatron as a gun)/Megatron/Another Transformer, even an Optimus variant idk
  7. Wow, that’s rad as hell. Some excellent new sculpting, maybe this is a good sign for the future of Minimates. Then again...Zach said this is an umbrella license... Is it Hasbro general or just Transformers???
  8. I guess it depends on what the implications are. Zach said in the interview that “lots of people have been asking for a long time,” does he mean the Minimates collector market or general audiences? It’s not gonna happen, but I really hope for a general Nintendo license. I think the Lego Mario sets might get in the way of that. But I do think it’s gonna be a big license, the way Zach has been hyping it up and keeping secrets (or maybe it’s my blind optimism, who knows)
  9. I’d genuinely kill for a job at DST (I think my skillset would totally fit that job) but I’m sure they want someone local so they don’t have to deal with someone from the other side of the country moving out there. Then again, moving to the east coast means I’d be closer to my fiancé. Plus a job at DST means I wouldn’t be able to complain about Minimate releases on YouTube anymore 😔
  10. I haven't been out of my house in weeks, so if it's okay I'd like to ask: If anyone could help me out with the Falcon & Winter Soldier packs, I would be eternally in your debt.
  11. Hey Walgreens, long time no see. These look alright I suppose, kind of plain really. Shoulda swapped out someone for Ms. Marvel, she's only got one variant and there's already a very similar Widow hanging around Walgreens. If DST has rights to the GamerVerse branding, can I start petitioning for a PS4 Spidey? Maybe a 2-pack of him and Miles for around when Miles' game comes out? Well, I can dream.
  12. http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/2017/07/diamond-select-signs-license-for-pacific-rim-uprising/ "Diamond Select Toys (DST) will offer a wide range of Pacific Rim Uprising products starting in 2018, including Select action figures, Minimates mini-figures, Vinimates vinyl figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, vinyl coin banks, replicas with lights and sound, and housewares. The movie will premiere in U.S. theaters on February 23, 2018, and DST plans to have the first products ship in time for the premiere" I'm curious to see what DST will put out. I thought the first movie was a lot of fun an
