Damn. I just picked up the Spidey 4-pack of Minimates today. Now I want Carnage and Rhino.

Stupid addicting articulated plastic. I swear, toy companies must put an opiate in the plastic that we breathe in as soon as the package is opened.

But anyway, these are neat, and where can one find that awesome X-Men boxed set with the repro of Giant-Size X-Men cover on the front?

killertoys.com or actionfigureexpress.com for the Giant Sized X-Men.

I have been really wanting to pick up the Marvel minimates, but cash flow is tight. I did get an Elmo Kubrick for my girlfriend cause she loves him.

Thanks for the links, guys.

I'm going to be choosy with this line. No visorless Cyclops or any other BS like that.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but are Marvel Minimates going to be (or continue to be) offered at retail places?  I know the TRU nearest us has the four packs, but I was wondering if they were going to be carry future waves...or if other stores might be as well?  I was just curious if they would be able to be found at retail...at least somewhat (I understand exclusives and chase figures might be an online-only type of thing).  If I have to collect the majority of the line from internet stores, I might have to stay away from it.  Just curious if anyone knew the retail situation...thanks :).

By the way, they are great little figs though.  I only have the Spidey four pack and I already want more :).

I'm going to merge this thread with the Kubricks/Minimates thread OK :-*

I've never bought this line before, but I'm a huge Evil Dead fan. I have to get this set. It'll look awesome sitting next to my Movie Maniacs Ash.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some info on Back to the Future Kubricks. Like who has been made. I have seen different sets, but not sure of how many there are and all that.  Thanks!

Thanks for  the info. I assume some of those are tough finds. Well, you got to start somewhere.

I just noticed today that ToyNewsI.com has some great pics up of the upcoming DC Minimates line from Art Asylum.  You can check them out here:

ToyNewsI's DC Minimates Coverage

I'm just sticking to Marvel for now, since I have enough catching up to do there...but these things do look pretty good too, and will be tempting.

Also, TNI has news of the "tallest" Minimate to date, a Tower Records exclusive Sauron.  You can check that out here:

I wish the DC sets didn't come with all of that extra carp...I'd be much more inclined to buy them :-\
