With the renewed focus on getting more X-men merchandise to collectors, companies have really begun to spoil us! For two years straight we have received two great waves of Marvel Legends and Diamond Select currently has a nice selction of Minimates featuring classic characters like Lady Deathstrike, Magneto and Mojo. But Diamond isn’t content!
It’s the 15th anniversary of the Marvel Minimates line, and to celebrate, they’re going back to where it all began! This four-pack of Minimates captures two classic X-Men and two classic Evil Mutants in the 2-inch mini-figure form. A classically-styled Marvel Girl and Professor X team up to take on Quicksilver (in his green costume) and Toad – one of the first Marvel Minimates ever designed, in his first-ever release! Each Minimates mini-figure features 14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts, including unmasked hair for Jean Grey, a Cerebro helmet for Professor X, and alternate parts to turn Professor X into Mastermind!
This set will retail for $24.99 this winter, which is not bad for what is basically 5 characters. If you are a classic X-Men fan you’ll want to add this set to your collection.
