Toys “R” Us Launches Avengers vs. X-Men Minimates Fan Poll!
June 18, 2012

This year, Diamond Select Toys is all about letting the fans choose. With the Marvel Minimates Series 50 Fan Poll in its final week at Marvel.com, yet another poll has launched over at Toysrus.com! This fall, the Website — as well as Toys “R” Us stores nationwide — will carry a Minimates box set based on AvX: Avengers vs. X-Men, the Marvel Comics crossover event of the year, and they’re letting the fans pick the line-up!

Just as with last year’s Heralds of Galactus box set, six characters — three Avengers and three X-Men — are up for voting, and only four will make it into this fall’s box set. Fans can choose from Scarlet Witch, Protector, Phoenix-Buster Iron Man (with basic Iron Man underneath) and Phoenix-powered versions of Cyclops, Emma Frost and Colossus. The poll will be up until July 14, and later this summer DST will reveal the final line-up! Check out the full character art below, and go vote at toysrus.com!

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, 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.
