The X-Men Face the Brood in Marvel Minimates Series 47!
April 27, 2012

Of all the aliens that have invaded Earth in Marvel Comics over the years — the Skrulls, the Kree, the Chitauri, the Dire Wraiths — none are quite so unpleasant as the Brood. But that unpleasantness makes them the subject of some great stories, which is why the next series of Marvel Minimates features the Brood alongside their frequent foes, the Uncanny X-Men!

The 47th series of Marvel Minimates includes three all-new comic-based two-packs: Rogue with Colossus, Longshot with Dazzler, and Wolverine with a Brood, plus a rare, one-per-case variant two-pack where Wolverine has been infected by a Brood egg! A race of scavengers and parasites, the Brood implant their eggs inside a living host, and that egg transforms its host into another Brood. The X-Men were already public enemy number one to the Brood after doing battle with them in the cold reaches of space, but when a Brood ship crashed in Australia, they found themselves facing a potential infestation of Earth. And it didn’t help that the Brood can assume their host’s mutant powers — now the X-Men had to deal with mutant Brood!

Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation and a variety of removable and interchangeable parts and accessories — Dazzler will include two separate looks, and Colossus comes with both bare and shirt-wearing chests, as well as a “fastball special” hand for holding Wolverine. The figures in this assortment will only be available in comic shops and specialty stores, so don’t miss out! Pre-order them today!

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, 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.
