A lot are reused from the Marvel side but damn, some of those Capcom figures are looking pretty good. Not really a fan of Minimates but I think I’ll get all just for the hell of it. Amaterasu is looking especially nice. :wow: Ryu and Chunners also look like a huge improvement over the previous figures.
how butch is x-23???
This looks pretty badass, overall. I agree about being more excited for the Capcom side, even though I’m more of a Marvel person as far as Minimates go.
<3 @ ammy
</3 @ no doom
Well, if the art poster is any indication, Doom will be in another wave.
Ammy = day 1 buy.
Want these. Very much so. How much you think they’ll cost?
I agree with the article I’m liking that zero one!
This is the first I’ve heard of “Minimates” before, but I’ll definitely be picking these up. How tall are they, just curious? I ordered the Mega Man Kubrick-figures off of Capcom-Unity a few months ago, they comparative to those I’m guessing?
I definitely want Dormammu’s figure! Though no Haggar is sad
Almost exactly the same size as Medicom’s Kubricks.
Mini-Mates are the Americanized knock-offs, except thinner and with limb joints. I’ve used them to fill holes in the Kubrick releases. For example Kubrick’s cereal line released Snap and Crackle, but no Pop. :wtf:
I really hope they come out with MODOK. :tup:
Arthur will be the cornerstone of my Ghouls n Ghosts obsession
The Ammy/Taskmaster/Phoenix/Dormammu ones are $ick. Can’t wait to see what Dr. Doom & Gouki will look like.
I think they’re around 7.99 to 10$ They come in twos.
X-23 looks like Chyna. LOL.
Haven’t bought any Minimates in a long time, but I must own Dante and Amaterasu.
Just bought 2 sets (Mag/Zero at TRU and Dorm/Trish at a NYC comic shop) yesterday of the MvC3 Minimates:

I’m wondering why couldn’t they pair Sentinel with Tron. Is she really hard to make? No Shuma or Hsien-ko love either.
Mini mates and Mighty Mugs are pretty badass, but all the females look terrible. That Zero is ballin though his design in general works well with the figures.
I think a few of the female Minimates look fine to me.
Amaterasu looks like the white tiger zord.
You know, that’s a good point. She does look like a Zord!
Is anyone planning to buy the Minimates? Besides the ones I just got, I was thinking of getting the Skrull/Viper, maybe Taskmaster/Spencer, Doom/Wesker, and MODOK/Akuma. Basically, major villains and the “spy by day, MILF by night”.
