Diamond Select Toys Marvel Minimates: Villain Zombies Series 2 Box Set Review

Diamond Select Toys Marvel Minimates Villain Zombies Series 2 Box Set 08

 

Diamond Select Toys latest Zombies Minimates offering includes Zombie Dr Doom, Zombie Morbius, Zombie Kingpin and Zombie Sabretooth. Since Disney will only allow DST to make Zombie Villains in the Minimates and Select line, they are more limited in what they can do. Fortunately, at least they are allowed to make these Zombie characters and as far as why they can only make villains, DST explained to us back at New York ToyFair 2015 that Disney doesn’t want their heroes associated as villains. This makes sense, but Disney also has to keep in mind that the majority of the people that buy the Zombie characters are adult collectors, which have also read the Marvel Zombie comic books as opposed to the younger audience.

Thank you to Diamond Select Toys for sending the Villain Zombies Series 2 Box Set for review.

Availability: December 2014

Packaging:

The Villain Zombies Series 2 Box Set comes in the standard Minimates packaging with the Villain Zombies logo on the front with a clear window showing the figures inside. On the side of the packaging there are head shots of the Zombies as well as an image of all four on the back.

Sculpt & Paint:

All four Minimates figures use the same sculpt as their previous non-Zombified Minimates figures.

Zombie Kingpin – Being a major player in the Marvel Zombies realm and the mastermind behind invading the 616 Universe, it makes perfect sense that Wilson Fisk got a Zombie figure. He comes with some new battle damaged paint deco, a newly tooled bullet hole suit, a cane, removable boots, and an acrylic figure stand.

Zombie Sabretooth – Since he had such a small role in the Marvel Zombie comic books, it makes us wonder why he was given a Minimates figure, and also announced as the next Marvel Select Zombie figure. Sabretooth includes a removable vest, and an acrylic figure stand.

Zombie Morbius – In the comics, Kingpin had sent Morbius to the 616 realm to infiltrate and replace his double to prepare for the invasion of the other Zombified heroes and villains to devour that realm. Fortunately, those plans were stopped by the Morbius of the 616 realm. Included with Morbius are two head sculpts (closed and open mouth), lab coat (which he wore in the 616 realm), and an acrylic figure stand.

Zombie Dr Doom – Being infected by the Zombie virus after the Zombie horde invade Castle Doomstadt, he sends refugees to parallel dimensions and destroys the interdimensional teleporter once they are all through, preventing the Zombie horde from devouring other realities. He includes some new battle damage paint deco, a Zombified head, helmeted head, removable cape and hood, a pistol and holster, and an acrylic figure stand.

There are also additional accessories such as interchangeable arms, flying figure stand, human remains, and more shown in the tray shots.

Overall:

Being fans of the Marvel Zombie storyline, it’s hard to pass on anything related to this story and Diamond Select Toys has once again done an incredible job capturing the zombified likeness. However, a character like Sabretooth wasn’t necessary and should have been placed by one of the many other Zombie Villain characters that deserve this slot, hopefully they will include all heavy hitters in their next box set release.

Highly Recommended.
