Review: Marvel Minimates- The Dark Phoenix Saga (Diamond Select)

For today’s review, I check out one of the newest waves of Diamond Select’s popular Marvel Minimates line of mini action figures. For Series 81of this Minimates line, the team over at Diamond Select focused on one of the most popular X-Men storylines to ever grace the comics. Here are the trio of 2pks. from The Dark Phoenix Saga.

In addition to Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Phoenix/ Dark Phoenix (Jean Grey), this set features characters Lilandra, Gladiator, and Corsair. Each character comes with accessories in the forms of alternative helmets, weapons, and decorative bases. Let’s take a closer look at each of the packs.

Dark Phoenix/ Gladiator

I personally think that this series is really sharp. The storyline, which graced comic book pages over 40 years ago back in 1980, remains one of the most referenced and popular X-Men storylines in history. I was first introduced to this storyline when the 1990’s X-Men animated series adapted it for TV screens. Since then, numerous X-Men movies and TV series have adapted elements of it into their storylines. Want to add this awesome Minimates set to your collection?

Special thanks to the Diamond Select team for sending these Minimates over for me to check out. They are awesome.
