    Marvel Minimates

    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

    I think I will be passing on the 10 figure box set, will be getting Mr. Fantastic in Wave 8, and dont care about the Ultimate Universe.
