The Last Ask DST said they weren't working on anymore.

BTW - the redesigned DST website is very hard to use. Anyone else having issues with it?

Design wise I hate that they dropped the figure archives. Only thing listed is current items on sale.

No plans for more Westworld or Castlevania, sadly.

finally came across it and despite my previous disinterest i couldn't help myself. it's... really bad. but once i drilled a new neck socket, lowered the head, and gave him some guns? not a bad use of $17. i really like the way the face was handled, with the white paint on top of the skin tone plastic. looks really good.

Guns look a tad large, but damn, that came out great!

yeah, think i'm gonna need to dig up some ML guns. i figured flashpoint batman's would work best since they're both 7"ish but def a lil big. i think most ML guns will skew too small tho so we'll see

sure! i just heated and popped the head off with the barbell still in the head, and then dug around for a drill bit that looked a lil smaller than the ball. then i just drilled a second hole deeper into the existing neck socket. so when you put the head back on, it'll still naturally sit in the original socket, but you can push through to a new second one.

i don't actually know anything about any of this, i just kinda figured it would work and would be worth a shot.

Diamond aren't offering anything of interest this year yet.

I was hoping they'd announce the Matrix license, but that amongst others was shot down.

My money will go to Hasbro instead.

Hey Zach (or anybody else)

The cobra kai figures are only available as SDCC exclusive in a single box set, or will be available afterwards as general release individually?

Thanks!

That photo looks great.

Your description kinda confused me though. In laymen's terms, did you just drill his head socket deeper?

yeah sorry, i guess that's what i did basically. but i didn't really make the original socket deeper so much as i just drilled in a deeper, slightly smaller socket into the bottom of it in case it didn't look good and i needed to retain the original socket.

sorry if this doesn't really make sense, i didn't do any research first and just kinda went for it.

Hey! Anyone with the Stargate figures! I'm thinking of using the Stargate Atlantis Wraith figure for a custom on the ML Sony Venom body - could anyone please let me know if the Wraith's head would look at all the right size on Venom's body? It would be sculpted over pretty heavily, I just need a good base. Thanks!

I'd say ds scale is usually larger than ML, but don't know for sure

Ok, so i am here to day that MCF toys unveiled an unmasked portrait of Idris Elba from Suicide Squad and just wanted to highlight the fact that fellows from DST got a MUCH BETTER likeness in their dark tower line... nothing relevant and just my humble opinion, but worth saying nonetheless.

I see a lot of people using that head in the bloodsport figure...
