Team America, **** Yeah!  ;D





NICE! I have those and they are hands down my favorite Kubricks ever. I only wish they would've had a wide release. I need the rest of the Team and would slaughter a small nation for a Kim Jong Il. There is sooo much damn potential there...  ;)

Yeah, I really like these figures. The detail & the paint is awesome.

I would love to have this Kuby.   :D     ;D

I visited the DST room today at Toy Fair...they're really going nuts with the Minimates licenses.

Back to the Future
Platoon
Rainman
Desperately Seeking Susan  :o

Others that I'm forgetting at the moment.  I'll get some pics uploaded soon.

I stopped by Tokyo Toys today after our Toy Fair coverage and they had Kubricks galore... I almost bought 2 whole waves, but Rob was there to stop me.... After looking at Toys for 3 days and not being able to buy ANY I needed to get something....

They even have the super sized Bearbricks.

Here's some DST stuff including a bunch of minimates.  Unfortunately some of my pics turned out like ****.  :\

I got a couple pics too. I loved the Marvel zombies minimates! The mock posters were great too. Platoon was the best one, lol.

I like the fact that they are really branching out with the Minimates line but I think they're product selection is quite confusing. Is there really a market for Rain Man and Desperately Seeking Susan minifigs?

I do like the Back to the Future pieces but i'll be sticking with my Kubs unless they make some vehicles like the Delorean and Biffs Chevy (w/o manure :P)...

I was under the impression that they were just doing the movie posters for fun, not actual products to sell (even though some of them will be made like BTTF)

Oh, ok. I just assumed that they would be future product lines. I like the way the posters look and would buy just them.  ;D

Nope, they're doing them.  I asked specifically, because I was kind of perplexed in their choices.  :)  They said the oddball series like Rain Man, etc, would more than likely be box sets and not available individually.  That makes a little more sense, but I still can't fathom who would really want most of these.

I guess our guide wasn`t as up to date on them.
Platoon will be cool, but no way I`m buying Rain Man and Madonna minis!

the new toyfare has a bunch on minimates pictures in it. It says that target is getting a wave of 2-packs as exclusives. Iron Spidey is in it.

I'm Iron Spidey'd out.  How long did he wear that costume, 3 months?  Any report on what the other mini's will be?

Any updates on the medicom site? Any marvel kubricks? The page won't load at work for me.
