2011 Unofficial AFX Marvel Boxed Set Poll.

So, for those of you who don't remember or weren't here - March of 2009 saw us start a poll amongst the members of the MiniMate Multiverse to find out which Marvel Minimate Box Sets we wanted to see most.

'What's the point of all this?' i hear you ask. Well - we're hoping that the collective might of the Multiverse may be enough to sway the powers that be to create the set's that we, the fans, really want to see.

As a group we will each send an individual email to the people in power (AA/DST, AFX etc . . .), requesting the winners of this poll be made into box sets.

Last year's winners were as follows:

#1 SINISTER FOES OF SPIDERMAN (aka Sinister Six) - Electro, Lizard, Vulture and Scorpion

#2 EXCALIBUR - Captain Britain, Phoenix, Shadowcat and Meggan

#3 WRECKING CREW - Wrecker, Bulldozer, Pile Driver and Thunderball

#3 AVENGERS -Falcon, Black Panther, Mockingbird and Yellowjacket

#5 INHUMANS - Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak and Gorgon

We've since seen about half of these figures made (even if they weren't issued exactly how we requested them), and with toy Fair having just finished we know what we will be getting this coming year, so it seems it's time to re-evaluate and figure out what the new top 5 will be.

How it works: This round will see out the nominations. To nominate a box set, all you need to do is post in this thread the title of your box set & the 4 characters you'd like to see in the set.

For Example - 'First Appearance X-Men: Jean Grey, Cyclops, Ice-man & Beast'.

I know many of you would like to see box sets with more than 4 characters included, but since AA/DST are sticking to their guns and are happy with the 4-to-a-box formula, that's how we are going to nominate.

You can nominate as many times as you like, but try to keep it reasonable. Once we have a list of Nominees, we'll vote ourselves down to a Top 15, and from that Top 15, we'll vote in a Top 5, and it's this Top 5 that each of us will email to the friendly folk over at AFX, DST etc . . .

If you'd like to know a bit more about how this works or how it went last time, you can check out last years nominations, voting and final results.

Put on your thinking caps, pull out your wish-lists & get nominating, chaps!

EDIT: Nominations Close March 12. . . so you've got just over 2 weeks to get em in.

Wow - maybe i should have limited the nominations . . . :blink:

Guys - please try to avoid nominating a set that has already been nominated by someone else unless your nomination has a distinctly different line-up.

Cheers :thumbsup:

Any attempts to avoid vote-splitting this time around? Like if there's multiple sets nominated for the same team, you could just list the team once in the poll, with all suggested characters -- then, if it makes it to the top 5 we could do a secondary vote to decide the roster. Or maybe too complicated that way, just a thought... :geek:

We'll run it in a similar fashion to how we did last time. If there are 2 different line-ups nominated for , say Alpha Flight, we'll list both the line-ups. All votes from both line-ups will go towards nominating an Alpha Flight box set. Whichever line-up received the most votes will be the set that is put forward.

This may sound odd & perhaps without innovation but I would just love to have a definitive set of these:

(A proper, red, classic ,no bullshit) Daredevil

Falcon

Winter Soldier

(A truly frenzied frightening ) Red Skull

All these are no-brainers & wouldn't hang around on any peg or website for more than a few minutes.

just to add some fuel to these ideas, plus a little sadness lol with Marvel announcing a new Alpha Flight maxiseries I post to both DST and AFX on facebook asking if now would be the time for some Alpha Flight mates. Here is what AFX had to say:

Action Figure Xpress: Jeff we are always working with DST on some cool sets to put together. Alpha Flight has always come up but trust us when we say the sets we are coming out with this year are going to be some of the best ever. Seriously. Well, at least in our humble opinion. We are talking debuts of some characters, awesome characters. Wish we could let the cat out of the bag but in due time ...

just some food for thought
