“Lost” @Marvel @CollectDST #Minimates Wave Gets a Second Life at @Walgreens !
October 30, 2018

For 15 years, and over nearly 400 characters, Marvel Minimates have been building the Marvel Universe one assortment at a time. But one assortment of characters was nearly lost forever! Originally slated to be released at Toys”R”Us, TRU Series 26 was all but cancelled, until a new retailer stepped in to make it available to collectors. Starting today, Series 26 can be found exclusively on Walgreens.com!

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.

Each Minimates mini-figure features 14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts, and comes with a clear display stand for advanced posing. The two-packs will be sold individually, and each is in short supply, so order early.

Visit your nearest Walgreens to find exclusive Minimates based on Avengers One Million B.C., Marvel’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and the animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Secret Wars.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
