Plants vs Zombies, Marvel Comics, and Clerks Minimates all make landfall onto the shelves of retail stores today, along with a new Godzilla bank that mech’s things up a bit.
Well, as far as what I’m looking forward to this week, it’s probably the ‘best of’ Marvel Series as I wasn’t collecting Minimates for a while and missed a few of these classic figures that are set for re-issue. You might be more looking at those awesome black & white Clerks figures or that amazing set of PvZ ‘Mates though. The Plants vs Zombies sets have been a long time owing in particular and are not only timely (Halloween is just around the corner you know), but as close to being must-have for any fan of the property as you can get.
If you’re not into the Minimates series’, your choices are a little more limited this week, but that Mechagodzilla bank is nonetheless a pretty big winner in the awesome department. Yes, it sis a bank first and foremost, but it’s pretty easily able to double as a bust too- and would look pretty dang awesome next to your Godzilla film collection on your DVD/Blu Ray shelf.
