Walgreens Marvel 'Mates

Recommended Posts

And by the way, why are the characters who prominently use firearms, like Agent Venom and Crossbones, getting the shaft on guns? I see the ML Agent Venom loaded with weapons along with a Master Chief figure from Halo sporting a plasma rifle warming the pegs at every Walgreens in my area! Can someone explain this to me?

I don't know about Crossbones, but the little I've seen of Agent Venom in the cartoon, he doesn't appear to use guns

Those of you who watch the show, what is the backstory for Iron Spidey? Is it still Peter Parker?

Now when I look at Ultron, that's all I can see...

I took Electro out for a test tonight, he glows like crazy. Good job DST.

Still nothing here.

They're resetting the candy aisle for Halloween. The only evidence that toys have changed is the addition of three Star Wars figures hanging from a peg in one store.

Yes art for Series 2 exists. But the Ultron wave is Series 1.5. We'll show Series 2 soon, maybe.

Agent Venom and Crossbones do not use guns in the cartoon. These are all cartoon-based.

There will not be any more animated-style Minimates at TRU.

Found them today, picked up both spiderman packs

2099 set just feels light on accessories

And red/blue spidey seems like his face is too low. I was really looking forward to the wtf face but it's kinda disappointing.

They all look great except that spidey head.

There will not be any more animated-style Minimates at TRU.

Is that because they're not moving or because Walgreens wants them exclusively? And are you talking about Marvel specifically or animated style 'mates (like TMNT) in general?

I was at TRU today finally checking out the Star Wars stuff (gotta wonder WTF LFL was thinking when they licensed die cast to both Hasbro AND Mattel but that's another topic) and I noticed the animated Spidey 'mates weren't moving at all. Unless they put out another case (and I hope they did) these don't appear to be moving. Then again, there's the same oversaturation of Ultimate Spider-Man product as there is SpongeBob Squarepants so I can certainly understand it.

I'm sure most of the board won't lament the loss.

Im a San Diego based collector, and yesterday while at the Chula Vista Walgreens (for those familiar) , I hustled my way to the toy aisle and boom; there was the 2099 pack waiting for me. Now I was only interested in Spiderman, so I gave my friend Agent Venom. As we leave the aisle, I see someone eagerly make there way to the to section,making a quick glance at the 2 pack that rests in my hand. I made a passing comment to my friend saying "I bet hes looking for the pack we just got", and laugh about the odds of that being the case. It turns out, that was the case, and as I get ready to pay for the figures, I look behind me and see him still in the toy aisle with a disappointed look on his face.

So if youre on this board reading this right now.....sorry about that! Hahaha :D

Did DST make the Ultron design up themselves or is it based a certain episode? The episodes I've seen with Ultron all had him look like this:

I started watching Avengers Assemble yesterday and gotta say this line is gonna need villains. Iron Skull is a must and seems like an easy one to do.

Has TRU 20 come and gone? Page 19 had a lot of people looking but not finding, and I have not found these at any TRU's. Anyone come up with the 6 digit magic number?

Looked up stock online, found 2 Walgreens near me (Atlanta, GA) that had them listed in stock. One didn't have any out, but the 2nd one did. Got the whole series. Glad to have that done until December.....

I was a bit disappointed there was no Flash head for Agent Venom.

TRU 20 is still hanging on pegs at my store.

Now I'm wondering if TRU pulling out of animated Marvel 'mates will mean Walgreens will have to commit to ordering more to justify the expense of the license amendment. TRU's numbers are pretty significant from what we've been told. Them not taking anymore of these could mean the end of this line extension.

It makes me semi nervous about the future PL

I was just talking about Marvel Animated Minimates.

This line was never planned to be at both retailers, the timing is wholly coincidental, based on retailer schedules.

The line has a future at Walgreens, and that was never dependent on any other retailer. As long as Walgreens is interested in remaining the exclusive home of Marvel Animated Minimates, I believe we are moving forward. So support Walgreens, please.

TRU 20 was a one-off, Ult. Spidey-themed assortment, and was put together before Walgreens came on board. TRU 21 was always planned to be comic based, long before TRU 20 even came out. We announced it at SDCC. TRU will continue to have Marvel Comics and movie Minimates, and TMNT Minimates. Same as always.

Make sense?
