Minimates Toys R Us Wave 15 Gabriel Lan Air Walker / Pyreus Kril Firelord

It is still early into MUReview’s foray into Minimates collecting and we are really enjoying sharing it with you.  But we are learning something.  Art Asylum / Diamond Select offers an amazing selection and catalog of characters in their Minimates line.  The story with this killer pack is that a vote was taken to make the Heralds box set….

It is with that that we get two more Heralds of Galactus.  Let me back up.  There is an epic box set of the Heralds of Galactus that you can find at Toys R Us if you look hard enough.  After 4 different locations, we managed to get our hands on them and that review is coming, featuring Morg, Galactus, Frankie Ray Nova and Terrax.  The box set characters were chosen, as said by vote.  Firelord and Air Walker didn’t make the cut.  However, through the good graces of Diamond Select and Art Asylum, we have ended up with this flame wielding duo anyway.  For that, we thank them.  Air Walker (Gabriel Lan), a Herald of Galactus and a Nova Corpsman.  Firelord (Pyreus Kril),also a Herald, also a Nova Corpsman, and a Guardian of the Galaxy.  These are all things that make me very happy.

Pyreus Kril Firelord

The Good:

  • Accessories!  The flaming staff, a flaming stand / base.  All well done in translucent red flamey goodness.
  • Flaming hair!
  • Good solid construction (and read on for why I say that).

The Bad:

  • I loves me some cosmic.  I’m thrilled to have a great Firelord figure here.  However, I’d love to see the chest pin showing his membership in the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Gabriel Lan Air Walker

The Good:

  • The detail and accessory for this figure are great, wings, tons of ornamentation!
  • Coloring is just right.
  • Excellent chest emblem detail.

The Bad:

  • Though I’m thrilled to have an officially licensed figure version of Air Walker, it breaks my heart to see that he is literally jumping out of his skin to fall apart.  His shoulder harness, his feet, his arms, his helmet, all fit very loosely and come off very easily.
  • I have to say it again, this dude came apart like Humpty Dumpty after his great fall, only he never took his own spill.  He was just standing there.

Both

The Rest:

  • In spite of the assembly issues on Air Walker, I can in good conscience recommend this 2 pack to any collecter, and demand it’s presence in any Marvel Cosmic lovers collection.

Availability:

  • You can pick up Firelord and Airwalker at Toys R Us, they are available now!
