Marvel Minimates Celebrates 10 Years: You Can Decide What Comes Out In The Next Wave
In 2003 Diamond Select Toys started the Marvel Minimates line of toys, 10 years later you now have the chance to decide which characters and variants get made for the anniversary line. In a stroke of coincidence the 10th anniversary matches up with the 50th consecutive series to be released. In order to really celebrate, Diamond Select have given fans a chance to decide the full line.
There are so many fan-favorite characters who have yet to get their own Minimate figure, DST is going to give those fans the power to decide the line-up for Series 50! This series will only be available at comic shops and specialty stores, and will be entirely composed of fan-voted characters!
Over a four week period, Marvel.com will have polls up for 4 different groups of characters.
Poll #1 will be the Main Assault Team, showcasing the Marvel Universe’s star players with updated or distinctly different looks.
Poll #2 will be the Support Team, giving some love to the unsung heroes who have backed up the all-stars over the years.
Poll #3 will be the Primary Targets, villain characters who we’ve never gotten their own Minimates or who need a re-do.
Poll #4 will be the Cannon Fodder, army-builder characters who you may want to buy more than one of.
According to Marvel, the top 1 or 2 vote-getters in each poll will be made along with a rare variant figure of one of the characters. Those pictured below are members of the first poll, the Main Assault Team.
