For the last year or so, Walgreens has been getting into the collectible toy market with the likes of Doctor Who, Pop Vinyl, and TMNT, and now the drug store chain has another reason for you to venture down its toy aisles – Marvel Animated Minimates.
he assortment includes the following two-packs:
– From Ultimate Spider-Man, Spider-Man (with web line and interchangeable half-raised mask head) comes packed with Agent Coulson, with fully removable SHIELD armor to reveal his blue suit underneath.
– From Avengers Assemble, a massive Hulkbuster Iron Man, with removable armor pieces and a flip-up helmet, comes with the evil android Ultron.
– From Ultimate Spider-Man, the alternate-reality Spider-Man, Miles Morales (with web line and interchangeable unmasked head) comes with the Harry Osborne version of Venom, with removable parts and an interchangeable head to create the Venom clones from “Venom Bomb.”
– From Avengers Assemble, Hawkeye (with quiver, bow and arrows) comes with hired thug Crossbones.
I really like the Ultron/Hulk Buster two-pack, and the Venom figure looks really cool, but I have no idea what is going on with Mr. Fantastic.
The Marvel Animated Minimates series 1.5 figures are expected to arrive in December as a Walgreens exclusive.
