X-Men: Days of Future Past Minimates Box Set

Diamond Select Toys has released new photos of the Marvel Minimates "Days of Future Past" box set, and let me tell you, they look goooood. If you're a fan of minimates or DoFP, you're going to want these. 

Press Release:

"At this week's Comic Con International in San Diego, Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will release their Marvel Minimates box set based on the classic X-Men comic storyline, "Days of Future Past." Published in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142, the story showed a grim future where mutants were second-class citizens that had been largely exterminated by giant Sentinels, and it became one of the touchstones of the X-Men mythos.

The 4-pack of Minimates captures some of the storyline's most important characters – Future Wolverine, Future Kitty Pryde, Mystique and a Future Sentinel. Each stands approximately 2 inches tall with a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, and we've taken some photos to show off all those parts! Check out the photos in the gallery, then come to booth 2607 on the show floor to pick up a set for $20, or check with your local retailer to see if they can order it in for you!"

Of this set, I think Future Wolverine and Mystique are my favorites. Wolverine is both disgruntled and cute, and if you have Colossus, you can do a "fastball special" with them. Mystique is cool, because she shapeshifts. Shapeshifters are hard figures to make if you try to do anything in mid-shift, but as you can tell, the minimates design team handled that pretty well. If you're at SDCC, get them quickly, because you know these are going to go fast. And let me know how you like them.
