Marvel Minimates Series 54 is Captain America Crazy! At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Diamond Select Toys unveiled the next comic-based series of Marvel Minimates, and it was a Captain America fan’s dream come true! With more Cap friends and foes than you can shake a shield at, Series 54 will surely whet appetites for the next Captain America movie when it hits in early 2013, and here are the first official pictures!
With seven different Minimates to collect, Series 54 will be available at comic shops and specialty toy stores in January in four different two-packs. The first set includes “Fighting Chance” Captain America from Mark Gruenwald’s classic storyline and Robot Red Skull from Ed Brubaker’s acclaimed run on the title. Next up is ex-sidekick the Winter Soldier (with sniper rifle), who comes with his successor the Falcon (with his sidekick Redwing). Finally, classic Cap foe Baron Strucker will come with a caped Hydra Elite and a short-packed variant set will pair the Hydra Elite with Madame Hydra, a.k.a. Viper!
