Upcoming Toys ‘R’ Us Marvel Minimates Are Age of Apocalyptic and Slightly Shirtless
If Marvel’s upcoming Age of X storyline has you nostalgic for a kinder, simpler dystopian future where mutants wore studded collars like they were going out of style, then Art Asylum/Diamond Select’s upcoming Toys “R” Us line of Marvel Minimates is totally for you. Sure, it may repackage Iron Fist and Spider-Man (in his “Big Time” suit) from an earlier Shadowland wave, but aside from that it’s all new mutant goodness with Age of Apocalypse Morph, Blink, Sabretooth and Nemesis. Also? A very happy-to-be-shirtless Wolverine and a ’90s Omega Red rockin’ his ponytail with pride.The Morph, Blink, Sabretooth and Nemesis (aka Holocaust) minimates join an growing lineup of AoA characters that includes Cyclops, Dark Beast, Jean Grey, Magneto, Rogue, Sunfire, Wolverine and, of course, Apocalypse himself.
The four 2-figure sets will roll out at Toys “R” Us in 2011, but for now you can admire their blockyness below:
