Diamond Select Toys and Toys R Us are once again letting the fans decide which characters will be included in another of their Marvel Minimates sets. This time you get to vote for who will be included in the Avengers vs X-Men series, which will be released this fall. Fans have six different characters to choose from, 3 Avengers and 3 X-Men, but only 4 will be produced as part of the upcoming box set. Fans can choose from Scarlet Witch, Protector, Phoenix-Buster Iron Man (with basic Iron Man underneath), Colossus, as well as Cyclops and Emma Frost in their Phoenix-enhanced forms. You can vote now on the Toys R Us website, but hurry as the voting ends on July 14th.
For those of you unfamiliar with Minimates, think of them as oversized Legos. Minimates are a block-styled miniature action figure originally created by Art Asylum in 2002 and now released by Diamond Select Toys. According to the http://www.minimatedatabase.com/ there are over 1300 of these figures. They are not just limited to Marvel, although Marvel certainly makes up the bulk of what’s been released so far. Other Minimate product lines include Ghostbusters, Halo and Star Trek.
