Days of Future Past is one of the best known X-Men stories of all time. While the original story arc only lasted 2 issues (The Uncanny X-Men #141-142), it’s repercussions have been felt through the x-universe ever since. It is also the inspiration behind the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. While a wave of minimates based on the film has also been released, this San Diego Comic-Con exclusive box set celebrates the original source material.

The first wave of Toys R Us exclusive Aliens Minimates have the notoriety of being one of the few waves in recent years not to get any purely exclusive sets.  Instead, the wave is a “Best of” wave of sorts, being used to bridge the gap between Waves 1 and 2 of the main line. It also gives us our first look at two of the Marines who will be showing up in Wave 2. One of the two is Smartgunner Vasquez, packed facing off against another pesky Xenomorph.

The TRU wave has added two new marines, including today’s focus, the shell-shocked Marine Hudson, who is packed with another Alien Warrior variation.

The latest comics-based wave of Marvel Minimates has done its best to fill some important holes in the team (and give them a few more foes to fight) while also trying out a new way of distributing some of the characters.
