Amazing Spider-Man 2 Minimates are Available Now
Diamond Select Toys’ 56th series of Marvel Minimates is finally here, and it’s based on the latest entry in the cinematic world of Marvel superheroes: The Amazing Spider-Man 2! When you stop by your local comic book shop this week to treat yourself to all of the new comics, you can also pick up four different 2-packs of Amazing Spider-Man 2 Minimates! There is a comic shop/online assortment and a Toys “R” Us assortment, both feature similar Amazing Spider-Man 2 characters, but they are different (for the most part). Here’s some more info from DST:
First up, Spider-Man battles a grinning Green Goblin using his webline and megaphone accessories. Then a Battle-Damaged Spider-Man dons a fireman’s helmet to take on a metallic Electro, with lightning attachments and an energy base. Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy pair up in the third two-pack, with a Spider-Man mask, backpack and phone, and the final, two-pack gives us Electro’s boss Alistair Smythe and a pre-Rhino Aleksei Sytsevich with a briefcase, machine gun and an alternate pantsless pair of legs.
These four two-packs are exclusively available at comic shops and specialty stores, although Toys “R” Us and toysrus.com will receive slightly different versions of the two Spider-Man sets – one with a serious-faced Green Goblin and one with a translucent Electro. Toys “R” Us will also have their own exclusive two-pack, featuring a “Flashback” version of Spider-Man and a pre-accident Max Dillon with briefcase and newspaper.
