  1. In retrospect.... succinct. I've said it before ,you are between a rock & a hard place .
  2. I had my second jab yesterday & that might be slowing me down , I generally spot sarcasm but I am genuinely unsure what you are saying . I'm also aware that I am also perceived as being sarcastic , I can be ....& I'm not in this instance. So here's the question ....are you saying that SDCC exclusives have been historically hard to get hold of ...or are you saying that IYO they weren't particularly elusive? I was going to PM question to you but if we all did that then there'd be no forum would there ?
  3. Spoilers Despite my omnipresence on this forum I originally avoided any BSG thread for quite some time , I had every BSG 'mate release way before I'd seen an episode of the show. What a show !
  4. I loved BSG & I would have loved to have seen this hex/6 concept back in the day .
  5. Oh ...that need Subtlety (that really is a shit word to spell) can mean everything to a sometimes cynical collector . I'm not a big fan of NBX 'mates but I do appreciate them , this set I understand .
  6. Different facial expressions make these a bit more desirable . Although I know exactly what it is between the Clown's legs , I still can't help myself giggling like Beavis .
  7. The NBX set is a bit more logical & that Clown is a bastard to find in the wild . 1000 sets ! I've said it for years but here's some actual confirmation of how limited many Minimate releases are.
  8. SDCC always brings out the best in all of us .... people Fortunately,this year, there appears to be an absence of those great joy-bringers that unite the common man ,promos. Who can forget the joy that those Gold Alligators & Vorins brought us Oh how I wish I could have been at one of those private parties with good ol' Digger. I'm not sure whether I commented at the time ? Lessons were learnt & at SDCC2017 DST gave us the last Turtle to complete our collections ,that worked well , I remember it being Nickelodeon's fault ,not DST's. There
  9. The fact is that the last Marvel minimate box set was Avengers Endgame , that was 2 years ago . Personally, I have kept up my Marvel Minimate collecting in the last 2 years with Walgreen releases & quite why WG 'mates aren't revered is yet another mystery to me . IMHO WG 'mates are that 'pinnacle' that I alluded to in an earlier post, they're stunning . An SDCC ,updated ,Endgame set is the first box-set after a 2 year drought , when compared to what I'm seeing in the WG waves , they look ordinary , very ordinary. I'm going to a pub next week for a beer ,the
  10. Did I forget 'our' 81st. Iron Man ? I wasn't sure whether he'd be our 81st. or 82nd. I've read that there will be 1000 sets of these (source : Dorkside Toys) & ,each & every site I am finding, limits your spending to one set .......there is one ebay seller however that is prepared to sell you a set for $154.98 & appears to have 8 cases of 12 in his future inventory. 1000 sets ? IMHO that wouldn't be the first time DST has produced such a small number of Minimates . Obviously.
  11. I hear you. Those of us that weren't late to Minimates might add to our collections our 15th Hawkeye or Black Widow ,our 31st Thor ,our 49th Hulk & our 50th Captain America. A boxed set of A+list SDCC Marvel Minimates should be the pinnacle of everything that has come before , here's the rub (for me at least) none of them is going to be a classic or a must-have & that speaks volumes .
  12. A nice bunch of 'mates, that said...... 2 years after Endgame, so I'm a little surprised at the choice of characters , obviously these are A+ big hitters but surely Marvel has moved on since then ? Or not?
  13. The POA kubricks were amongst the first released by Medicom & are accordingly quite naive . Regards buying them ,I would suggest buying a 'collection' rather than hunt them as individual box sets. Collections often appear on ,very reasonably priced . Many people here would love POA Minimates but I think it is a bit too late to hope for them . If we did get POA Minimates I can't believe we'd get a Minimate horse . Kubrick collectors got a kubrick POA horse 20+ years ago .
  14. 2 factors must always be considered when deciding whether a Minimate licence did well many were produced & how many were sold , that might sound obvious but it's not quite as simple as it sounds. IMHO Godzilla sets were produced in relatively low numbers ,command high prices with comparatively few listings years later. I'd guess that they were produced in very low numbers . Whether Godzilla 'mates were a commercial success for DST is debatable but if they sold out then,I guess, they did well .
