X-Men 1st Class Marvel Minimates Box Set

X-Men 1st Class Marvel Minimates Box Set - Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Iceman, Cyclops & Angel

To capitalize off of the success of FOX’s hit film X-Men: First Class, Diamond Select will be releasing an all new Marvel Minimates box set featuring Professor Xavier’s original first class of mutant students from the X-Men comic books this September! I’m a little surprised Diamond’s releasing this set since they just released a series of Minimates based on the movie characters with basically the same name (seen here). You’d think there’d be some major confusion since there’s not much difference between the titles “X-Men 1st Class” and “X-Men: First Class.” The Blot also finds it kind of funny that the only original X-Man to actually show up in X-Men: First Class (Beast), was left out of the X-Men 1st Class box set.

This specialty market exclusive box set features four of Xavier’s first X-Men in their original blue and yellow outfits, including Cyclops, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Angel and Iceman. Each Minimate stands 2.5" tall with 14 points of articulation and a variety of removable and interchangeable parts and accessories. The X-Men 1st Class Minimates box will retail for around $18 and comes packaged in a full color window box.
