New X-Force Minimates Tackle the Team’s Latest Incarnation Sans Fantomex
Rick Remender and Jerome Opeña’s “Uncanny X-Force” kicks off a new team’s ongoing adventures this October and Diamond Select and Art Asylum are already catering to fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the group in Minimate form. Online retailers like BigBadToyStore are currently accepting preorders for a four-figure set that includes Psylocke, Wolverine, Archangel and new team member Deadpool — all in their signature black ops outfits.
Each team member has seen their share of Minimate incarnations over the years, but this marks the first time Deadpool’s been seen in his new grayscale duds in toy form. It’s a pretty big bummer, however, that Fantomex has yet to be immortalized in plastic, especially considering his earlier-reported inclusion in the set. Maybe he’s being saved for a separate line down the road? While it may be too much to hope that the toy listing will be altered to include Weapon XIII, perhaps the resourceful hero will find his way into the Minimate fold some other way by the time that this four-piece preorder arrives in January?
