In light of what happened to Toys R Us, Diamond Select Toys seems to have gazed into the looking glass and saw the writing on the wall. Still, there were some products set to release at the now closed toy store that we thought might be lost forever. With its deal with Walgreens, a new wave of Marvel Miniates will soon be available as an online exclusive.
Available only online, Series 26 includes three different two-packs, from three different areas of the Marvel Universe. The assortment includes:
- The new Iron Spider, Hobie Brown, with the teleporting super-villain The Spot. Iron Spider features three additional, removable arms, while The Spot includes an alternate head and multiple black discs and bases that represent his teleportation portals.
- Holographic Iron Man with masked villainess Madame Masque. An artificial intelligence inside a classic Iron Man armor, Iron Man has a translucent Tony Stark head under his removable helmet; Madame Masque includes a blaster.
- Marvel Now Cyclops with Marvel Now Rogue. The former leader of the X-Men, now public enemy number one, faces off against the reformed X-Man and Uncanny Avenger, who coms with an alternate hairpiece with her hood raised.
Again, this is an online exclusive, and for those of you who are Marvel Minimates collectibles, this is that one rare chance for you to get a set that might have never been.
