I’m a Gentle Giant Star Wars minibust collector since 15 years ago. I would like to know if you are expecting to release more minibusts from episodes 8 and 9. Sadly it only was released one from TLJ and there is only one preorder for Rise of Skywalker. As a big collector I’m missing important characters to be released as minibust like Poe Dameron, Snoke, Praetorian Guards, Knights of Ren, Jet Trooper… that would be cool to get represented to complete the Skywalker saga. Also I’m missing a very important character not represented from the second trilogy, the Count Dooku.

DSTChuck: As of now we do have some busts planned for Rise of Skywalker, but I don’t know how deep we will go into the Sequel Trilogy. We’ll have to see.


Rooster S. how about the Knights of Ren busts? Any chance?

DSTChuck: As of now, we have no plans for Knights of Ren but never say never.

Hello, would it be possible to make a statue of Knull, the god of symbiots, in the near future?

DSTChuck: Very cool-looking character. It’s not in the plans right now but it’s something I could see u considering in the future.


Dan P.
Is this the end of the Kingdom Hearts figure line? We have everything released and nothing in the tank, and it took very long to get the previous wave out.

DSTChuck: I am sorry, but the line is on hold at this time.


Tariq A.
Will there be a Lenore statue (Castlevania Netflix series) availabe anytime soon? Trevor Belmont is already available.

DSTChuck: For now Trevor and Dracula are the only two, but talks are ongoing with Netflix about the possibility of more.


Derek A.
Do you still do Star Trek?

DSTChuck: Yes.


Jason G.
How’s the Electronic Lights & Sounds Robby The Robot coming along?

DSTChuck: Unfortunately, it’s going slower than we expected.

In 2018 a Sonic the Hedgehog minimate wave was announced and a 4-pack was later released but nothing ever happened with the minimates wave and I was just wondering. Was the wave cancelled or has it just been delayed, sorry if it’s already been announced and I just haven’t heard about it, I just would like to know if there’s anymore info on it.

DSTChuck: At this time, the only Sonic Minimates are the 4-pack already released. Sorry.


Reese P.
I remember seeing 2 things in the past related to Legends in 3D busts, that I haven’t heard anything new on. One was the Robby the Robot the one was Darth Vader. Are these still happening?

DSTChuck: Robby is taking quite a bit of time due to the mixed media and the cost involved. The Vader is moving right along and should be slotted for preorder soon.

Already excited for the new Marvel minimates.
1) you have plenty of awesome Rocketeer merch available. Any chance we might get a Rocketeer Minimate?
2) is there still a chance the Bruce Lee set could be made available?
3) does your deal with Disney allow for Pixar MiniMates? Say… The Incredibles?

DSTChuck: #1. Not planned right now, but very possible.
#2. Never say never, but I don’t think so.
#3. We do not have any rights to make products from Pixar movies, but we would love to.


Michael K.
I know it was said that you guys are looking into alternative ways to distribute the Muppets Dr. Teeth and Zoot, but is there any hope for Rizzo and Sam Eagle?

DSTChuck: Right now our focus is on completing the band, but if that goes well, we’ll see what else we can push along.


Anthony
Just wondering if the Jumbo vintage Star Wars line is going to see more characters? (Still waiting for a FX-7.) :)

DSTChuck: The jumbo line will continue!


Luis V.
Love your Legends in 3D bust line! I was wondering if there is a chance of seeing Daredevil, Moon Knight or Ghost Rider in this line?

DSTChuck: I don’t see why not, time will tell!


Khristian C.
Hi..will you guys continue the Justice League Animated Premier Collection line with the rest of the members of the JL aside from Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman? Thanks!

DSTChuck: Right now, we just have those three planned. If sales kick up, we’d LOVE to keep going with that line and do more for Batman TAS as well.

Diego R.
Will there be a minimates line based on the Spider-Man ps4 game? What about Spider-Man: Far From Home?

DSTChuck: Neither are planned at this time.


Ads L.
Will you be making more Sonic Gallery PVC Dioramas?

DSTChuck: We’ve been messing around with some designs, so we’ll have to see.


Luke B.
Just wondering if you will ever make any scout trooper Classic Mini Bust?

DSTChuck: We’ll have to see what the future holds, it’s not planned nor is it eliminated from consideration.


Alex T.
will there be any select action figures and ships for Star Trek: Picard?

DSTChuck: I am sorry, but we do not have the rights to make products for the CBS streaming shows.
