Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates are Back for Round 3! Fight!
August 2012 - After two rounds, Diamond Select Toys has still not decided who the winner is in their Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates line. Now it's time for the third and final round! Series 3 hits comic shops this week, and will be coming to Toys "R" Us shortly, and DST has put together a series of exhibition bouts to show off the new characters' moves! In a new photo shoot, DST has pitted Marvel characters against Capcom characters based on Series 3's two-pack pairings. That card includes:
- Captain America vs. Ryu
- Doctor Doom vs. Wesker
- She-Hulk vs. Chun Li (specialty market exclusive)
- X-23 vs. Felicia (specialty market exclusive)
- MODOK vs. Akuma (Toys "R" Us exclusive)
- Thor vs. Amaterasu (Toys "R" Us exclusive)
March 2012 - With two full waves of Diamond Select Toys' Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates line out in stores, DST decided to hold a photo contest, to see who could stage the best fight scene. The winner would get a set of Minimates from every line DST made, plus some rare Minimate prizes, and that brought out some talented photographers! After some tough deliberation, DST came up with a winner, plus three runners-up.
The first runner-up was Jason Castick. Jason used a little Photoshop to make it look like Deadpol was braining Dante from Devil May Cry with his own power meter -- an actual in-game move! The action-packed shot easily landed him in the top four.
The second runner-up was Neta-Lee Wolfman, who showed Deadpool standing over a defeated Dormammu, who seems to be sinking into a lava bed... made of popcorn? Great lighting, Neta-Lee, and great use of a delicious snack.

Spider-Man, Chris Redfield, Wolverine, Viewtiful Joe, Crimson Viper, Super Skrull, Jill Valentine and Storm have joined Series 1 on the pegs, which means there are now 24 Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates in all! Even though they're only 2 inches tall, Minimates pack enough articulation, accessories and interchangeable parts to create some crazy fight scenes, so Diamond Select Toys is issuing a challenge -- stage a fight scene between two or more Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates and send us a picture of it! The winner will get a set of Minimates from every Minimates line we make, plus some rare MvC3 prizes!
