Walgreens picked up another exclusive Marvel Minimates series

Now, not when you feel like it!

Walgreens has nabbed yet another exclusive wave of Marvel Minimates, adding Marvel Minimates Series 4 to its already sizable selection of exclusives. In addition, the previously announced Marvel Animated Minimates Series 3 is available at Walgreens right now.

Series 4 will consist of four 2-packs. The selection, which pulls characters from Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble, is as follows:

  • "Deep Immersion" Spider-Man (which removable dome helmet) & Anti-Venom
  • Scarlet Spider & Green Goblin
  • Speed Force Hulk (glows in the dark) & Speed Demon
  • Iron Skull (Red Skull in stolen Iron Man armor) & Doctor Spectrum

This is notably the first time that Speed Demon and Doctor Spectrum have appeared in the Marvel Minimates line. (Speed Demon has, however, made an appearance in Hasbro's Marvel Legends line as part of the Absorbing Man wave.)

This new wave of Minimates is expected to hit retail sometime this Spring when they'll join the currently available Series 3 (a wave which notably includes Squirrel Girl and Hyperion).

In general, I'm always surprised by how many exclusives Walgreens seems to carry, given that they're a pharmacy rather than a more conventional retailer. Among other things, they've had Diamond Select Toys' Marvel Animated Minimates line, several exclusive Marvel Legends from Hasbro, Hasbro's Star Wars Black Series white Boba Fett, and quite a few Funko Pop! figures.

I think the moral of this story is that it pays to stop in your local Walgreens occasionally and to check out stores you wouldn't normally consider. Especially in this case, since it's a great-looking Minimates series.
