Marvel Minimates series 51 is spilling over into the Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum's 17th series of Toys "R" Us exclusive toys, but with only two crossover figures from both lines. Set to arrive at TRU by the end of 2013 are two-packs pairing Marvel NOW versions of Hawkeye and Black Widow, Superior Spider-Man 2.0 and Ultimate Electro, Venom and the new Nova Sam Alexander, plus Rescue with Robot Hulk (the comic one, not the Ang Lee movie one).

This new line marks the first time Rescue, Robot Hulk and Ultimate Electro have received Minimates, with the rest of the characters getting significant refreshes for their contemporary comics looks. Nova and Robot Hulk also stand out in this wave for coming packed with alternate heads exposing their unmasked appearances.

You can see all of the Toys "R" Us Series 17 Marvel Minimates -- both in and out of their upcoming packaging -- below.
