Marvel Minimates Wave 57’s tie-in with Guardians of the Galaxy gave us the whole main team, in one small, concise package… mostly.  In order to aid with this, one of the sets gave us not just two members of the the team, but three.  Three Minimates in one set?  How does that work?  Well, it’s kind of iffy…let’s just get to the review of Drax, Groot, and Rocket, shall we?

There were quite a few awesome movies released in the summer of 2014, and, thanks to four of those movies being Marvel movies, Minimates really got in on the coverage. One movie covered was Guardians of the Galaxy. Today, I’ll be looking at the film’s primary hero, Star-Lord, and its primary villain, Ronan.

2018 marked the year that Walgreens’ supply chains got a little gummed up, at least as far as Minimates were concerned.  Technically, four waves hit that year, but for a good portion of collectors, those figures didn’t actually arrive for the better part of a year after their first sightings.  While the most infamous case of this was certainly Wave 10, the two waves prior also were rather afflicted.  Things seem to have more or less equalized by this point, though, so let’s have a look at some of those ‘mates, specifically Symbiote Spider-Man and Hobgoblin!

Today marks the final entry in the reviews of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Minimates. It’s okay. We can get through this together. I’m a little sad that there aren’t a never ending supply of these figures to review, but I think I’ve saved the best for last here. Today, I’ll be looking at Agent Jasper Sitwell & Batroc.

Since all of his old supporting cast were stuck back in the ’40s, for The Winter Soldier, Cap needed a new back-up team.  Fortunately, he got them, in the form of his Avenging pal Black Widow and his new best friend the Falcon, who pair off for today’s set!

The first Captain America film was focused on the character’s roots in the ’40s, but for his second time out, Marvel tapped more heavily into later stories for the character.  The main story was, of course, drawn from Brubaker’s run, but the supporting cast was filled in with mainstays from the ’70s and ’80s, including setting up a few more of Cap’s not-Red-Skull-antagonists.  One such character was Brock Rumlow, later known as Crossbones, who I’m taking a look at today, alongside another variant of the main character!

2014 was a somewhat crowded year for Marvel films, with not only two MCU entries, but also two from outside studios, making four additions in total.  Kicking things off in April of that year was one of the MCU’s best regarded films, the spy-thriller Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  As was often the case, the Minimates provided for the best overall selection of characters from the movie.  I’m kicking things off today with a look at the film’s two title characters: Captain America and The Winter Soldier!
