Taylor L.
You mentioned last week that you are working on an Ecto-1. It reminds a lot of the Delorean that was released a few years back that is probably my favorite piece of merchandise I own. Will this ecto-1 also have lights and sounds?

DSTChuck: The Ecto we are working on would have some lights and sounds like the Back to the Future Time Machine, yes.


David R.
Will the marvel minimate line continue after wave 78? and walgreens wave 10? and if so when might we get some hints?

DSTChuck: Yes, Marvel Minimates are still going… I’d hint, but I don’t think the next ones are locked in.

Pedro D.
What are the odds of us getting marvel statues of vehicles like the Thundertank for minimates? There’s a lot of heart for the Fantasticar bathtub that would be a great test for the market.

DSTChuck: I don’t think we have any resin statues of Marvel vehicles in the plans – sorry.


Alex M.
Any more John Wick items coming after the 4 pack?

DSTChuck: Sorry, at this time there are no more Wick Minimates planned, but never say never.

I am collecting the Marvel Gallery Infinity war black order figures. I already got Thanos and Ebony Maw. Corvus and Proxima are on their way. Just wondering if you have plans to release Cull Obsidian to complete the set? Thanks.

DSTChuck: He would have to be very large and much more expensive, so we’re waiting to see if there is as much demand for the Black Order as we hope… Steve M.
How likely is it that you’d ever produce figures from Extreme Ghostbusters?

DSTChuck: That is not in the plans at this time. We’ve had a great time with the Ghostbusters and we’re going to take a little time to assess what the future of the figure line will be.


Eli S.
Hello, I was wondering if you guys were finished with Pacific rim beyond the battle damaged gipsy avenger or if there were plans to continue?

DSTChuck: There are no plans at this time, but for sure we are not closing the door completely.


Amiko N.
Will you release or have plans to produce 4 to 5 inch poseable figures for the Sonic line in the same vein as your select line of figures. Me and many other Sonic fans would like poseable figures of Sonic and his friends.

DSTChuck: I can say, we do have more cool stuff planned for Sonic!


Matt M.
Do you have any plans of expanding the DC movie gallery? Would love to get Two Face and Scarecrow

DSTChuck: We’re going to see how the ones we have released have done and would love to add more characters or maybe another Batman from those movies.


Brandon C.
With Far From Home coming out, any chance we’ll see a Mysterio Marvel Select (preferably the classic comic version)? What about other Spidey villains like Doc Ock? Other versions of Spidey? Miles Morales? Scarlet Spider?

DSTChuck: We do not have plans right now for a Mysterio Select. Yes, other versions of Spidey are being discussed.


Daniel H.
Picked up the Kelvin timeline Kirk this past weekend and already have The Spock ordered now. Good work to you guys now please tell me I’ve got some more crew members coming! The fellas needs Bones!

DSTChuck: We still have a bit to go on sales to break even on the Kirk and Spock, but if they get there we have a couple other characters from the Kelvin timeline we have discussed.

Levent K.
I would like to know if you guys got any plans for releasing Classic Sabretooth Diorama/Statue.

DSTChuck: We have absolutely discussed a Sabretooth Gallery.


Isaac G.
When’s the next time we can expect a a box set 4 pack for Marvel comic Minimates? It’s just been a while since we’ve gotten a comic box set and I’m willing to bet if it was X-Men theme, it’d sell really well! Would love another one!

DSTChuck: We have been doing the movies in 4-packs, and the comic ones just kind of come up from time to time as we discuss the line plan.


Jaime Z.
Two questions. First I’d like to say I love the Marvel Gallery PVC’s so I was wondering if there were any Gallery PVC’s for the movie version of Falcon? Just wanted to buy one before he official becomes Captain America in the movies and shows. Also are there any plans to make Gallery PVC’s of the future Disney+ shows?

DSTChuck: We have not done one at this time, and for now we do not have plans for one from Endgame.


Lewis R.
Are you going to add anymore heroes to the retro figures line?

DSTChuck: At this time we do not have any more “retro” figures planned.
