New Minimates: TMNT and Alien

Some new photos from upcoming minimates are online, from both TMNT and Alien. They are as follows,

Alien Box Set

-Ripley

-Kane

-Parker

-Big Chap (Alien, Xenomorph, etc.)

TMNT Minimates

Okay, this gets complicated…

These are done in a countertop display with… agh… blind-bagged packaging. Each case has 18 Minimates, or two sets of 9, which include:

-Michelangelo

-Donatello

-Raphael

-Leonardo

-April O’Neil

-Foot Soldier

-Shredder

-Footbot

-Rare, variant Mutagen Michelangelo that is 1 per case

Apparently each countertop contains 18 minimates but each display only holds 9, which makes me question how the Mutagen Michelangelo fits in if he’s one per case… Any ideas? Ok, without any more words, pictures:

Also, I plan on adding reviews to the site (I said this a while back, but… I got busy) and I want to know what format people would like the most. Written, or Video? Also, what do you want to see reviewed? Please give suggestions in the comments, thanks.

Marvel Villains Zombie Minimates #2

From marvelousnews.com.

A new Marvel Box Set has been revealed following the Zombie Theme. Again all villains,  and the line-up is as follows:

-Morbius (Who looks just like normal Morbius)

-Kingpin (Lookin’ awesome)

-Dr. Doom (Again, very cool)

-Sabretooth (Cool)

I like the line-up, but I can’t help but wish we received the iconic Wedding Dress Mary Jane, the Zombie Venom, or Mr. Fantastic. But hey, the fact that these exist beats literally every other action figure line out there. (Marvel Legends, Marvel Select, Marvel Universe…). If you have collected the other zombie box set and the previous figures, then this should be very cool. I know I’ll be picking it up.

Note: A friend told me Morbius plays a pretty big part in the fourth chapter of Marvel Zombies, so, awesome!Minimates_Zombies_Boxset__scaled_600

“This set has been in the works since December, and I couldn’t be more excited,” says Luke. “This is a very big deal for our store, and I have to thank DST for offering it to us, and all of our customers and fans who have helped us get to this point!”

This set is limited to 3,000 pieces and is expected to arrive in September 2014. It is up for preorder here: http://lukestoystore…imates-box-set/

Upcoming Minimates

Here are some pictures of some upcoming minimates, from bigbadtoystore.com 

Marvel Minimates Wave 58: X-Men: Days of Future Past

It’s worth noting that instead of the Storm pictured earlier this picure has Rogue. We do not yet know which one will be released.

EDIT: Storm will be released, not Rogue. Also, no TRU assortment for this wave.

-Future Prof. X with Past Magneto

-Future Magneto with Past Mystique

-Future Wolverine with Future Storm/Rogue

-Past Logan (Wolverine) with Past Xavier

XMEN

DOFP2 (from Marvelousnews.com)

The Walking Dead Series 6:

-Constable Rick and Douglas

-Carl and Burning Zombie (side note, they never say zombie in the comic or show, yet this and McFarlane’s charred zombie use the word.)

-Constable Michonne and Winter Zombie

-Party Dress Michonne and Winter Zombie (Variant)

It’s worth noting that Michonne and Rick seem to be the stars of the Walking Dead Minimates, with multiples of both in every series.

Godzilla Boxset

-Godzilla, Mothra, Gigan and Titanosaurus

GODZILLA

Marvel Minimates Wave 59: All- New X-Men

-Cyclops and Marvel Girl

-Beast and Angel

-Iceman and Sentinel

-Bobby Drake and Sentinel (Variant)

An extremely quick turnaround from comic to minimate, and, barring Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, I believe this to be the first “full civilian” version of a superhero character. Hopefully snowballs are included.
