Thor, Chun Li and...MODOK Fight Their Way to a Store Near You

Posted by G-Man (39280 posts) - - Show Bio

If you've walked down the toy aisle lately, you've probably seen the Minimates figures from Diamond Select Toys. We recently did a photoshoot with the X-Men First Class set. There's something about the Minimates figures that make you want to play with them and position to create different scenarios. If you're a Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 fan (who isn't?) then you should also be aware of the Minimates based off the video game.

The first wave is in stores now with exclusive fiures at both Toys "R" Us and comic shops/specialty stores. Wave 2 is set to arrive next month. If that wasn't enough, you can now get ready to pre-order Wave 3!

== TEASER ==

Who can we look forward to?

- Captain America vs. Ryu (modern)

- Doctor Doom vs. Wesker

- She-Hulk vs. Chun Li (specialty exclusive)

- X-23 vs. Felicia (specialty exclusive)

Toys "R" Us will also carry two of those packs, but they'll also get two sets all to themselves, made up of two gods and two monsters:

- Captain America vs. Ryu

- Doctor Doom vs. Wesker

- Thor vs. Amaterasu (TRU exclusive)

- MODOK vs. Akuma (TRU exclusive)

Oh, I'm really going to need to find that MODOK set.

Each figure stands 2 inches tall and comes with interchangeable parts and weapons. Collect them all!

The hours of fun I'll have with me having him scream out CHRIIIIIIISSSSS in that hilariously nasal voice of his will be worth every cent.
