MINIMANIA (and I told you so)

I have been dying to get this wave since it was announced at the Toy Fair in February so to get my package full of minimates today was awesome. This wave of minimates (wave 21) will have to go on the top of my list as my favorite wave simply because it is all based from the Iron Man movie. So here we have the Mark 3 armor (which has a removable face plate so you can see Tony's face inside) and Pepper Potts.
Here we have Tony Stark and the Iron Monger.
Then here we have Jim Rhodes and the Tony Stark here is the captivity Tony but this minimate actually comes in the package in the Mark 1 armor but you can take him out and this is how he is and since I get two Mark 1s in this wave (because one comes with the variant) I will be displaying one of them like this here.
Then here we have the Mark 1 and the variant for this wave the Mark 2 which just looks amazing! This wave of minimates simply makes me jump for joy inside. What makes me even happier is the fact that Marvel minimates are not showing any sign of slowing down they have plenty of announced stuff to come out so keep it comin'!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then I had to get this movie based set of Platoon because these little soldier are just awesome. I actually ordered the set before renting and watching the movie and although the movie wasn't anything to get excited about it was ok and I still had to have this set here. The package doesn't specify which name goes to which guy but I do know that Pvt. Chris Taylor (which is Charlie Sheen) is second from the left. You also have Sgt. Bob Barnes which I think is Willem Dafoe (on the right) Sgt Elias Grodin (which I think is the guy third from the left) and then Pvt "Gator" Lerner (on the left) The great thing about these guys is that thier helmets go over their hairpiece where most minimates you have to take off the hair to put on any sort of hat or helmet so that was a good idea and the figures still look good.
Here is Marvel wave 22 from the movie the Incredible Hulk which was. . . .incredible when I compare what I expected the movie to be and what I felt after seeing it. It was a great movie so even thought I think this Hulk minimate looks a little lackluster they are new minimates so I am excited. This here is Bruce Banner and the Hulk.
Here we have a great Emil Blonsky with his night vision goggles and then you have what he becomes aka the Abomination wihich is a good looking minimates however the figures that are supposed to be bigger have this crazy duck feet on them that are kind of dumb but oh well they do give you normal feet in the package so you can replace them if you don't like them so I can't really complain!
Then here we have battle damaged Hulk Betty Ross and here father the variant from this wave General Ross.
Then here it is, I told you so. In the last post I told you I would be getting this set and here it is Leia and Tobbi Dala to go with the comic 2 pack of Dengar and Fenn Shysa. Had to get me the Mandalorian!
