Is it bad that I'm 22 years old and I love these little guys? I want them all. Everytime I'm at Wal Mart, I want to buy some, but I can't bring myself to do it.


Does anyone here actually collect these?

If it's any consolation, i'm 27 and have bought almost every X-men themed Marvel SuperHero Squad made avaiable so far. I even have them posed around my Marvel Legends BAF Mojo, so it looks like he's comanding an army of X-Babies!

Hey - i think i just figured out why i'm single!

I have some, I mostly stick to favorite characters, I have ghost rider, punisher (and cap punisher), thor, carnage, bullseye and deadpool. I wish they'd make a taskmaster biggrin.gif

To give you am more pluralistic perspective on your question, I'd say, yes, it is bad Bizklimkit. Shame on you!

I don't think it's a bad thing, especially since it allows you to collect a variety of lines in the same format - Marvel, Star Wars, Transformers, GI Joe, Toy Story and Indiana Jones. Very few other lines provide such an opportunity and I have quite a few of them intermingled throughout my collection. While I primarily have Spider-Man figures, I do pick them up on occasion and am currently debating picking up the Iron Fist/Spidey pack.

Considering some of the characters I've seen at the store, I'd say Hasbro was hoping collectors would essentially collect these.

I mean little kids/parents don't buy them for Shang-Chi, Red Skull, Ultimate Nick Fury, Black Bolt, etc.... they buy them for the Spiderman, Hulk, Cap and so on that they are paired with.

Minimates never "appear" in my area so I quit buying them a long time ago. I'd have to buy them online if I wanted them, and that kind of takes the fun out of the hunt.

Besides, the last minimates I bought was the TRU exclusive with the tongue venom. Needless to say, I'm behind.

*sigh* I was also this way with this King Hulk/Black Bolt pack I kept seeing whenever I visited the mall every other weekend... of course, now that wave 31 is coming out soon the temptation doesn't beckon as strongly as it used to. Phew.


*has now recovered from the mild tendency to froth at the mouth whenever in sight of a Superhero Squad figure*

*But really I'm for anything that'll help Chuck see clearer and diversify the line even more, so that everyone will be happy. Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes. Also also also, the Book of Minimates needs to become a real thing. Also also also also, I'm still looking for Femme Fatales Minimates.

Okay, that's pretty cool when you put them with Mojo. I might start picking up X-Men just for that reason.

Cool! I had and enjoyed X-Men Annual #10 (possibly my favorite comic growing up) and 12, and Excalibur: Mojo Mayhem. Art Adams was my favorite artist as a kid, so I have fond memories of those issues.

I started collecting the Spider-man ones. Not all but just the different costumes. I already have a black spidey but I like this pose with the Iron Fist so I picked him up. I also have Spider-Woman so I guess I'm working on New Avengers.

Now where's that Ronin!

I seem to have the same reaction but I know that I already have MM Iron Fist and Black Costume Spidey sitting at home. But the other voice always questions, can you ever have too many black costume Spidey's? I'm pretty sure the answer is no but I'm resisting the temptation, doesn't mean I'll win just that I'm saving my funds for the time being.

haha, that's more or less the same reasoning I stick to when avoiding buying the pack. I want them, but I do have ironfist and black spidey as mates. for SHS, so far I have stuck to my very most favorite characters, like deadpool and bulllseye.
