New Minimates: TMNT and Alien

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:

Please comment with ideas, suggestions, answers, and more in the comments below. 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
