I searched for a thread on these little guys but didnt see one. For those interested this seems to be the lineup for series 8.

Series 8 2-paks:
Mr. Fantastic/Human Torch
Brown Wolverine/Cut-Face Thing
Sue Storm/Big-Chest Thing

Here's my take:

1. Mr. Fantastic / Human Torch - Sounds good to me, at leats we are getting 2 new figures.

2. Brown Wolverine / Cut Face Thing - I will probably pass - No need for another Wolverine or Thing (Especially since I already plan to get another with the Super Skrull)

3. Sue Storm / Big Chest Thing - What the hell is big chest Thing. WHy couldn't it be She-Hulk in FF gear. I think this will be the chase set with invisible and visible Sue but it would have been cool to have a double chase set with FF She-Hulk and Purple clothed She-Hulk as well.

Here's hoping for Thor in series 9. Way too many Things.

Cut-Face Thing? Is that as in the story from about ten years or so ago where Wolverine sliced a big chunk of Thing's face off in one of those stupid "hero vs hero" stories, then immediately apologized?

That piece of crap story was so incredibly bad, it was one of the things that led to my abandoning funnybooks altogether for several years.

So if Big-Chest Thing is from the intervening years (or even recent, as I haven't gotten back into FF), I can't help ya there. :)

All those Minimates sound good to me. I really want a brown Wolverine since I missed the yellow one.

We got what must have been wave 1 up here at our Canadian WalMart stores. They didn't go over very well, and were clearanced out a few months ago. I waited too long, and missed out on the sets I wanted. Could anyone post a link or a list of what's been made so far? I'd like to try and find one of those Silver Surfer (exclusive?) figures that made it to the back of the packages but not into my store.

Yes, theirs a spidey, an ultimate x-men, and a hulk/daredevil sets. But since the sets are made up of already exsisting minis I didn't mention them. Oh yeah and hteir is also a brand new 10 pack set with exclusive Mr.Fantastic and an exclusive Ultimate Green Goblin

At TRU, they are selling them in 4-packs and they mix the waves up. They had Spider-Man/Carnage & Thing/Dr. Doom; Battle Damaged Daredevil/Bullseye & Civilian Logan/Juggernaut; & Captain America/Absorbing Man & Unmasked Spidey & Dock Ock. I picked up the Spider-Man/Carnage & Thing/Dr. Doom set as these are the first I've bought of these figures.

Interesting,
I wonder if it's gonna be the movie Blade, or the comic book version. I'm betting it'll be the movie version.

I think they said they dont have the rights to the movie characters, i think it will be the comic version.

It woul dbe cool to get movie versions of Daredevil, Punisher, and Blade.

Well there is a Santa Spider-Man minimate out. I picked up mine. It was given to vendors who deal with Diamond as a X-mas gift. I got mine with a buy it now on ebay for 9.99. Its the same Spider-Man with little Santa hat. The feet are a little different color and have C3 holes.

These are pretty cool, but I'm sick of the same characters being made over and over again. Where's New X-Men Beast, Ultimate X-Men Beast, Iceman, Colossus, etc? :p

MTFBWY and HH!!

How about a regular beast. No more ultimates or New X-men stuff. I can't wait for Blade on Wednesday.

I bought my first Minimates this week.

In the mail today I got the Back to the Future 3 four-figure set from Entertainment Earth. It's got Marty as "Clint Eastwood," Doc Brown, "Mad Dog" Tannen, and Detention Marty (from the first movie). So all but the last Marty figure is in western costume. I'd much rather have 1885 Clara Clayton than the 1985 Detention Marty.

I also ordered the 4-figure packs based on the Clint Eastwood / Sergio Leone westerns A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. There's also a pack from For a Few Dollars More but I can't find one online. If anyone has a store nearby with the For a Few Dollars More pack and would be willing to pick one up for me, I'd appreciate it!

Apparently these western packs came out last year, but I'd never heard of them until recently.
