Marvel Animated Universe Minimates - GAMORA!

Marvel Animated Mini-Mates -  Walgreens Exc Series 2 - Gamora - DST 2016

I love that Gamora is getting so much action figure play in recent years. Movies have a knack for inspiring the merchandising Gods like nothing else. It's even better when movie popularity ripples out into other media and new video games and cartoons are created. I have yet to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon on Disney XD, but I heard it's actually pretty good. Someday I'll binge it all and report back. These Marvel Animated Universe Mini-mates are a cool exclusive for a toy-friendly chain like Walgreens to embrace. It must be hard to find a way to re-release main characters in a way that would incentivize collectors to head to these stores. But animated re-decos is a brilliant solution (as if having exclusive Funko Pops, Marvel Legends, Walking Dead, and World of Nintendo figures wasn't enough). Mini-mates are by far the best toy line for both team building and character variations. This is now the third Gamora released in a few short years, and I doubt it's the last. Let's check her out below!

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her pack-mate, Drax the Destroyer (and Baby Groot!)

And with the other lady from the second series of Animated Marvel Mini-mates, Black Widow.

and finally with the comics version Gamora on the Left and the movie version on the Right.
