Gamestop Exclusive X-Men mystery minis?

Great things come in mini packages, but which great thing will it be. It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Gamestop Exclusive X-Men mystery minis?

Postby sylin » Sat Sep 17, 2016 7:10 pm

I went to Gamestop today, and asked about upcoming mystery minis sets. While the employee read some familiar titles off the list, he brought up an intriguing one as well. Apparently Gamestop will be getting exclusive X-Men mystery minis. There's no info on the characters in it or the breakdown ratio. Based on the other minis he read off to me, this seems legitimate. Anyone else have info on this?

I remember someone posting about the series a couple months ago. Pretty exciting that it's actually going to come out!

Since it's xmen specifically... it would be funny if they're modeled after the fox movies.

funny in the kind of way that it's funny to kick a puppy or when your Grandmother falls down the stairs I guess, so not the good kind of funny.

Any rumors on if these will be Bobbleheads or normal minis? I'm hoping we can start get Marvel normal minis one of these days.

Anybody want to guess characters? :p

even though these will hopefully be FAR removed from the movie crap I have no doubt that it will be a Wolverine and Mystique heavy to appeal to idiots that don't know any better. sure do hope i'm wrong though. they'll probably even throw in a Deadpool just to really annoy me.

Well I figure X-Men minis (At least series 1) should be exclusively X-Men.

Very true but this is a team. I would expect the same of Avengers minis or Guardians minis. (though neither of them were)

a hero is only as good as their rouges gallery. I want this to be mostly X-Men but as I said i'd be pretty disappointed if we don't get a couple baddies. Apoc, Juggy and Magneato kind of seem like the most obvious choices to me, but wouldn't be too surprised if Sabretooth and the aforementioned Mystique fill one of the spots instead.

Oh wow I'd not even heard the rumour about these. This will be a brilliant set potentially.

As a UK resident i hope it's just a couple of figures that are exclusive to Gamestop rather than the whole set though.

I really want this set to be based on the 90s cartoon series X-Men! Just think of the bright primary colors :)

Maybe those two could take primary spots and Cable and Jubilee can be exclusives.

To answer a couple of questions that were asked earlier in this thread, they won't be based on the movies. We have seen zero things from the xmen movies in Funko form so they will be classic costumes. Also they WILL be bobble heads. All marvel and Star Wars figures are bobbleheads other than dorbz because of licensing rights. Other than that I would expect to see mostly classic characters.
Wolverine (a bunch)
Storm
Cyclops
Jean Grey
Beast
Magneto
Prof X
Colossus
Mystique
Pretty much the ones we know they have rights to

Hopefully
Psylocke
Saber tooth
Angel
Iceman
Night crawler
Brandon
Pops: 435
Dorbz: 80
Mystery Minis: 49
Newest pop: 10th Doctor with 3D glasses (thanks Skillawashere!), Young Anakin Skywalker, Gold BB-8

I'm not sure I love the look of the marvel mystery minis.... I hope the xmen don't have the same look to them. I love the way the game of thrones series 3, and horror series 3 were designed. Here's to hoping for a similar design!!!

god I hope not, the new mini style is just horrible. thankfully it's mostly confined to lines I don't care about.... though Prince John and Sir Hiss in such boring poses does make me sad :(

I know it's been mentioned that they'd be bobbleheads, but Im really hoping that their features/scale of their heads would be a little more in proportion -- at least along the lines of Batman Vs Superman minis, or the Exclusive She-Hulk & Capt. Marvel minis.

I'm just not a big fan of the Marvel minis' style. To each their own. :)

The production value is going to better than the original marvel minis regardless of how they are made. I don't want them to be like the new disney lines even though I do like them, I don't think that mold would be the best route. Here's what I'm wishing for.....

Gambit, cyclops, beast, wolverine, sabretooth, juggernaut, magneto, prof x, mystique, colossus, iceman, toad

Given the characters we've seen as Pops or on Dorbz lists, we'll probably some version of most of them here too, with maybe a few surprises.

As long as I get Emma Frost in all forms though, I'll be even happier because I'm already excited for the possibility of this series!

Since these will have to be bobble head minis, the only X-character that would fit is Avalanche lol
