February 27, 2012 - It's the 10th anniversary of Minimates, and one of the brand's longest-running lines is about to celebrate its 43rd assortment! Trickling out to retailers now, Wave 43 of Marvel Minimates is entirely based on the "Jean DeWolff Saga" from the pages of Spectacular Spider-Man #107-110, written by the now-legendary Peter David.
Bringing us the first Minimates of Jean DeWolff, Aunt May, the Sin-Eater and the classic SHIELD Agent, this wave also features new versions of Black Costume Spider-Man, Daredevil and J. Jonah Jameson that will become new favorites in any collection. Minimates are 2-inch, highly poseable mini-figures that come with a variety of interchangeable parts; of note in this series are the removable jacket for Jonah, a removable mask for Daredevil, an alternate hair piece for the SHIELD agent, and a removable mask and alternate "copycat" head for the Sin-Eater. Check out the packaging shots below, and ask for them at your local comic shop or specialty store!
