DST’s popular Minimates mini-figures are getting a 7th Walgreens-exclusive wave, as wave 6 is hitting now.
Walgreens- your Marvel headquarters
Weird as it is to say, drugstore chain Walgreens has kind of become a hotbed for Marvel toys. They regularly get (really great) exclusive Marvel Legends figures from Hasbro, and the store’s exclusive line of Minimates has now reached a seventh wave.
Based on Marvel’s current slate of animated TV shows, the series has included almost every major Marvel Comics hero and villain that’s appeared on the small screen. It includes all of the shows too, from Avengers to Spider-Man.
And that brings us to today. Diamond Select Toys has just announced a brand-new fresh assortment. They’ve got some good timing too, as it comes just as series 6 of the little figures has started hitting. I’m already digging wave 7 just a bit more though, since it has a mecha-Cap in it. I mean, it’s Cap in some Iron Man-like armor. And you even get a little Baron Zemo in the pack with him. What’s not to like?
Have a look in the gallery below, and then mark your calendar. These figures are set to arrive in Walgreens stores around the first week of this coming December.
