For about a year now, I’ve had Spiderman, Wolverine, Ryu and Akuma figures sitting on my desk. I’ve always arranged them as if they were ready to duke it out in a Marvel vs. Capcom battle. I always though it’d be cool to have one more Marvel figure and one more Capcom figure to ‘complete’ a 3v3 team.
Not too long ago, I was able to do just that, when I coincidentally found a stash of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Mini Mates figures at an out-of-town comic book store.
The store I went to had three different sets: Arthur vs. Ironman, Dormammu vs. Trish and Phoenix vs. Morrigan. I picked up Phoenix vs. Morrigan because Morrigan one of my favourite characters and Phoenix, for better or worse, is one of the most iconic characters in the series. I would have loved to have gotten Dormammu separately, but they only sell in pairs.

I’m really happy with the figures and would be interested in expanding on the collection. I just did some research on these Mini Mates and discovered they have two other series’ of figures that look awesome. I’ll definitely pick up more of these if I come across them.
