DC Minimates to end!? Say it is not so!

Recommended Posts

It's been brought up that apparently Wave 8 of the DC Minimates is going to be the last one we get from DC Direct. (Raven, Cyborg, Batwoman, Modern Question, Red Son Superman and Wonder Woman) With no new mates shown at the recent Toy Fair and some apparent mentioning it sounds to be true.

 

Say it isn't so DC! Aside from Mattel's DC Universe line, the minimates were one of my most favorite toy lines to collect. They just can't end things now with so many characters still yet done in this unique and awesome form...

 

Martian Manhunter (comic style, not animated like C3 version)

Black Canary

Orion

Beast Boy

Donna Troy

Ravager

Modern Robin

Two-Face

Poison Ivy

Mr. Freeze

Mirror Master

Trickster

 

Etc, etc, etc...

 

The point is, this is a nicely priced and cool way to get all the characters from the DC Universe for those of us whom maybe don't have lots of money to spend, but want lots of cool characters from their favorite comics. Or simply for those of us whom love this format among our other various purchases from DC.

The DC Minimates have amazing details and it's obviously a lot went into making these little guys. From Batman's utility belt, the treads on Flash's shoes... I would hate to see this toy line go away while the Marvel Minimates (whom were the ones actually rumored to be ending) continue on alone.

 

I'm sure I'm not the only one here whom appreciates this line from DC Direct and want to see it keep going. So voice up people! We have to figure out some way to get DC to notice that this line needs to continue. That we still want our Minimates!

 

DC Minimates forever!

this truly sucks but i'll remain slightly optimistic untill its offically announced, I did send DCD an email to express my love for this line, everybody who does love it should do the same.

There's been a recent "retraction" of the statement that was made at ToyFair. While nothing is "set in stone", the recent claim is that DCD 'mates are taking a "rest" after Series 8 (not officially "cancelled") to determine what they are going to do with the line. The rumor is that they will be leaning more towards character/story-arc boxsets in the future rather than waves. Also, despite numerous emails etc. from fans, they are saying that ultimately the decision on the fate of the mates rests on the shoulders of the "retailers" and not the fans or DCD which I think is a pretty sh!tty cop-out on their part. I guess at this point if we really want these to continue, then fans are going to have to pester LCSs to demand more 'mates. However, if there's nothing for them to pre-order, then what's the point?!? I'm so put-off by all this that I'm about ready to say "screw DCD altogether...all their products". Hell, Mattel's lines are looking better everyday and are a fraction of the price of DCD's!

I just sent DC Direct an email as well. Hopefully it does continue on with box sets. Aside from the Red Son Superman and Wonder Woman i haven't had an issue with character selection. Its a mix of Titans, JLA and JSA figures. The fact that Booster Gold and Blue Beetle came together was pretty cool too. I'll hold out hope they continue.

What's wrong with the people that ran this line? I dont really see the problem with DC minimates besides that it's very expensive. THere's a great selection of characters and unlike DCD's other lines, there's not a Superman or Batman in every series.

I don't have a problem with the figures in the line...I was more or less talking about the fools in charge who canceled the line @grumpy@ ....

I agree with you totally... the figures are awesome... I could do without the battle damaged figures though...

I'm so sick of every time Dc makes any line of toys they have to give us 99 different Batman and Superman figures @wacko@ with 75 different color variations @firedevil@ .... Come on People @pow@ - Give me a Break #WTF#

I think they should release set of different storyline, Sinestro corps war, final crisis, anyhting like that. There are sooo man figures they still need to do.

yeah, i would have liked that variant. I just put in an order with scifigenre to get the sets i still needed.

-wonder woman/ares

-aquaman/ocean master

-guy gardner/ kilowog

-salaak/sinestro

 

now i only need a few loose figures to get.

 

Yeah, wish more teams would have been completed. would have loved a beast boy/donna troy to round out the teen titans and a Black Canary and Huntress would have been great too.

If DC Minimates waves end I will not care at all. I collect Marvel Minimates and only have 1 DC minimate I got for a buck at a comic sale. Their also really hard to find at retailers.
