I figured we could use this as a DST thread if anyone needed it. I know that Bruce Lee figure just hit, there is the Kingdom Hearts stuff, and the John Wick figure is coming. So feel free to add on if you have pickups that aren’t Ghostbusters, Star Trek or Marvel from DST.
Anyway, I’m home sick today from work and had to run to Walgreens this morning to grab medicine. Which turned into an expensive trip. The likeness on Dolores and TMIB isn’t the greatest but Ford and Flynn are kind of spot on. Happy to have figures from Westworld at all and the Tron stuff feels way overdue.
I have the Tron figure from the KH release but these are giant upgrades. I only grabbed Flynn so far but I’ll probably get Tron and Sark soon too.

I'm always disappointed when figures have either removable hats or glasses because they always look odd.
Besides that, these figures are pretty cool.
It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. Some of the best people in history did not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in his name.
That said hopefully they make a Teddy Flood in the next wave.
Teddy, Maeve, and Bernard absolutely need to be made next. Armistice and Hector are big wants for me on this but I don’t think we’ll get that far. Logan and William would be great, too. I think we may get Teddy, Maeve and Bernard and then they’ll likely skip to the Season 3 stuff if these keep going.

Amazon finally got this in stock. I think I’ve had it preordered for like a year. I like it. Better likeness than I thought. I’ll probably pick up the Chapter 2 version when that one comes out next year but I’m happy with this one without spending mafex money.
Speaking of Tron I never watched the original and for a few years now I have wanted to watch the new one. Well last month the newer one was on cable so I was like “finally I can watch it”. Man that thing was boring as hell. I ended up falling asleep during it both times I tried to watch it. lol

Oh man. I loved Tron Legacy. The entire opening sequence through Sam discovering the grid is so good imo. Also, Sam and Quorra fighting in Castor's club is incredible and one of my favorite single scenes in movie history. I've been dying for Tron 3 to get off the ground.

Found the Castlevania figures today at GameStop for $19.99. They come with lots of extras and Trevor in particular was loaded with accessories. Two whips, a bucket, two swords and five or six sets of hands. I wanted to take MOC pictures but my kid tore these open immediately when seeing them. They had Sypha too but I think she’ll warm and I can pick her up for cheap down the road. Dig these a lot though and glad to have figures from the show.
