Thor, Chun Li and MODOK Fight Their Way to Stores This Spring in Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates Wave 3!
January 7, 2012

The first wave of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates is in stores now, with exclusive figures at both Toys “R” Us and comic shops/specialty stores, and Wave 2 should be arriving next month. But it’s almost time to pre-order Wave 3! Our next wave of MvC3 figures will hit in the Spring, and the line-up for the wave is packed with all-stars. As usual, some of the two-packs are exclusive to the specialty market, some are at Toys “R” Us, and some are shared between the two.

Comic and specialty stores get in some of the biggest names in Marvel and Capcom history, as well as some of the two worlds’ toughest women:

– Captain America vs. Ryu (modern)
– Doctor Doom vs. Wesker
– She-Hulk vs. Chun Li (specialty exclusive)
– X-23 vs. Felicia (specialty exclusive)

Toys “R” Us will also carry two of those packs, but they’ll also get two sets all to themselves, made up of two gods and two monsters:

– Captain America vs. Ryu
– Doctor Doom vs. Wesker
– Thor vs. Amaterasu (TRU exclusive)
– MODOK vs. Akuma (TRU exclusive)

Each figure stands 2 inches tall and comes with interchangeable parts and weapons. Collect them all!

You can pre-order Wave 2 and 3 through your local comic shop or online, but you can buy Wave 1 today! Find a comic shop or Toys “R” Us near you.

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
