Green Goblin is the stand out mate of this series. His satchel is actually a purse. It's a reuse of Kim Bauer's from the first 24 minimate boxed set. (Sorry Fwoosheyman)

Spidey also comes with his pit webs.

Goblin looks taller....'cause of the boots ?

Yes sir. That's exactly why.

Holy crap, a Wolverine where the mask tampos and face tampos line up and actually look good. And I like the "clobberin' fists" on Thing better than the three-fingered ones. I am shocked that I'll be picking up several of these sets.

Thanks for the pix, guys.

My 10 year old nephew has been buying Halo 'mates, I think I'll get him a set of these even though he isn't that into comic stuff.

I'll be getting some of these for my collection too, they look great!

It's funny after all the grousing, and Zach's "these aren't aimed at collectors" spiel... most of us are probably going to be picking these up anyway. :rolleyes:

-Goblin does look nice. And is Spidey sufficiently unique enough to justify buying? He probably is. I don't think, though, that in fifty years, Peter Parker's hair has ever looked like that.

-I like the red and yellow Iron Man too; he's kind of like a redo of the old, classic first Iron Man Minimate. Too bad there's not a stealth variant.

-I still can't see anything unique enough about Cap and Thor that makes them worth picking up for a collector. I really hope that pack moves before the wave 44 one hits.

-The purple package looks sharp! :thumbsup:

Was planning on getting the Spidey/Goblin set eventually for the new face on Gobby. But with web-wings on Spidey? Already got my order in to Luke. Whee!

Scrap.

Why'd those have to look that good? With 43 and MvC2 hitting now, I really can't afford any of these... I certainly shouldn't buy the whole wave, but as the song says "kinda I want to".

And the slaggin' Cap even looks like a good color match to the Iceberg Cap, and his pulled down mask accessory. (did we ever actually come to a consensus on what to call those?)

Blast it, these need to suck more, like a lot. If I do this it will so flush all the brownie points I scored at Valentines last week.

If I walked into a comic shop and saw these, I'd be instantly hooked on mates.

Well as long as you know it's not the right thing, and you know it's not a good thing....But these mates are killer. Proper tweaks to fix some annoyances as well as a good way to get your buddies collecting. Going to grab the Iron Man/Thing next week.

perhaps there should be a little warning on the boxes, 'warning: quality control tends to cease once you're fully on board'

Ha! I was thinking the same thing. These all look very high quality. All very vibrant and snappy with crisp, clear details. Thing... actually looks good, mega-bulk and all. None of these are necessary, but I need them all.

I'm digging the heck out of that Iron Man. And I'm tempted by the Spidey and Wolvie just because they look so nice, even though I've got others that I'm perfectly happy with.

One minor gripe I have about the Green Goblin is the paint on the top of his legs. I get that they were going for an extension of his jerkin, but the pink / purple applied over the green comes out a extremely dark and is kind of distracting (IMO), but I can live with it. On the other hand, DST/AA painted GG's pumpkin bomb in a very slick metallic orange (not noticeable in the pics) and for some reason it just looks 100% better than the previous 2 releases. You got to see it in person to understand.

YOU'RE right! Cap does match floating mess cap, I'm going to have to buy him now.

His neck fur and base orange are matches, everything else is different, and slightly better. if you can get the plug out of the shoulder, just swap the inner chest (if you need one, I have plenty).

It looks like Sabretooth doesn't have a slip-over crotch piece? If that's the case, that's a bummer.

ah, y'see... that new ones is so much better all round. I can't not keep that one on display. I just hope he doesn't hold his small crotch against me... :unsure:

cheers MsMarv fan

EDIT - that was it, I think that proto was missing the clawed hands as well, which put me off.
