Avengers vs. X-Men: Round 2! New AvX Minimates at Toys R Us!
December 2012 - The massive Avengers vs. X-Men crossover in Marvel Comics may be over (it was a tie!), but the fallout from the conflict continues... in the form of new toys! Phoenix Killer Iron Man, the Scarlet Witch and Protector take on Phoenix Five leader Cyclops in Diamond Select's new, fan-voted Marvel Minimates AvX box set, and it's recently been spotted in Toys "R" Us stores! Each Minimate is 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and with plenty of interchangeable parts and accessories. And Iron Man's bulky armor has a more streamlined Iron Man underneath! Check out the packaged shots below, and look for it to show up on http://toysrus.com in the not-too-distant future!
New AvX: Avengers vs. X-Men Minimates Box Set Coming Soon to Toys "R" Us!
November 9, 2012 - A few months ago, Diamond Select Toys asked you to vote on the next exclusive box set of Marvel Minimates for Toys "R" Us, based on the blockbuster Avengers vs. X-Men crossover event. The poll pitted three Avengers against three members of the Phoenix Five, with dominance of the box set hanging in the balance. Well, now the results are in!
The Avengers were the clear winners, with Phoenix Buster Iron Man, the Scarlet Witch and Protector taking three of the four spots in the set, with the remaining slot filled by Phoenix Five leader Cyclops! Plus, Iron Man's armor will open up to reveal a more bare-bones Iron Man Minimate inside! Phoenix Five Emma Frost and Colossus may not have made the cut this time around, but don't count them out yet -- they've both cheated death more than once.
