Marvel versus Capcom Minimates

Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum have released some new images of the upcoming Marvel versus Capcom Minimates. These will be available at both specialty stores and Toys ‘R Us. There will also be an exclusive box set for SDCC. There are many fans out there that have waited a long time for these. Personally, I’m not in that group. I don’t much care for pairing up a re-release with a new character, because I have to pay for both, but only need one of them. These could very well be a pass for me, the first in a very long time. Sorry, DST! What do you guys think? Are these a must for you, or a pass?

Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates: Specialty Wave 1 vs. Toys “R” Us Wave 1: Fight!

From the arenas of “Marvel vs. Capcom 3″ come the tiniest, deadliest fighters ever! The first Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates will be available in a box set at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but the first full wave of mini-figures hits stores in October. What’s more, within that first wave there will be some two-packs that are exclusive to either specialty stores or Toys “R” Us, as well as two-packs that will be available everywhere. So, to sort out where you’ll have to go to get who, we thought we’d break down the first round, bout by bout.

Toys “R” Us will get:
– Magneto VS Mega Man Zero (from “Mega Man”)
– Hulk VS Mike Haggar (”Final Fight”)

Specialty stores will get:
– Dark Phoenix VS Morrigan (”Darkstalkers”)
– Dormammu VS Trish (”Devil May Cry”)

Both venues will get:
– Iron Man VS Arthur (”Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins”)
– Deadpool VS Dante (”Devil May Cry”)

Minimates each stand 2.5 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and are designed and sculpted by Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum.
