It’s Minimate Mayhem This Week

Following the X-Men: Days of Future Past and Best Of Marvel Wave 3, comes even more Minimate news! MTV showed off the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 Minimates and Marvel Miniamtes Series 59 just showed up for pre-order. Let’s check em out!

DST will release four 2-packs of Minimates from Amazing Spider-Man 2.

MM56NEW

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Heroes and Villains

The sets include:

  • Battle-Damaged Spider-Man with Electro
  • Spider-Man with Green Goblin
  • Peter Parker with Gwen Stacy
  • Alistair Smythe with Aleksei Sytsevich

 

 

 

Interesting how Alistar Smythe is a big enough part of the movie to get a figure (a 1 per case at that). Is the role more than just a cameo? Maybe we’re getting set-up for Spider-Slayer in ASM3. Plus, if you’ve ever wanted a figure of a pants-less Paul Giamatti, now’s your chance. If you are THAT person, this might be the wrong site for you.

 

Toys R Us shoppers will see an exclusive set of variants released.

The Variants

The sets include:

  • Battle-Damaged Spider-Man with translucent Electro
  • Spider-Man with grinning Green Goblin
  • Peter Parker with Gwen Stacy
  • Flashback Spider-Man with Max Dillon

 

 

 

I’m kind of a sucker for translucent Minimates and that electricity effect is pretty cool. The “Flashback” Spider-Man also answers how the suit from the first film makes an unfortunate return. These sets should all be available alongside (or just after) the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 2nd.

 

To top it all off, DST Marvel Miniamtes Series 59 was unveiled today. It features the The All New X-Men from the Brian Michael Bendis comic series.

Time Travelling Mutant Teens and a Purple Robot

The sets include:

  • Cyclops & Jean Grey 
  • Angel & Beast 
  • Iceman & Sentinel
  • Bobby Drake & Sentinel  [Chase Variant] 

 

 

 

 

 

Bobby Drake in his power-down form is so cool (couldn’t resist). I’ll be scrambling to pick-up that variant pack for sure. These classic character with a new twist will sure be a welcome addition to any collectors shelf. Pick them up this October.
