The Second Marvel Variant Surfaces

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Today finally saw the release of the first series of Marvel Vinylmation.  And thanks to Vinylmation World, the second variant in this set was revealed.  It is a variant of Thor with a beard.

And here are both figures together:

I have to admit I’m a little disappointed.  After the awesome Phasing Vision that is in this set, as well as all of the source material they could have pulls from, this feels like a huge miss.  It follows similar variants like Monsters University and Muppets 3 where only a minor detail on the figure has been altered.  What are your thoughts?

  1. Agree that they have missed a good opportunity for an awesome variant in the Marvel series. I like the Thor character a lot but to just bung a beard on him as a variant seems lame.

    Just one point in the article – I like the Muppets 3 variant and it is one of the only ones I have purposely bought on ebay since not being able to blind box (in New Zealand!) – it ties back to the basis of the song on the Muppets – might be a minor detail but there is a point to the variation which is nice.

  2. What’s with Vinylmation? Who gives a poop? Beanie Baby stupidity. Wish they’d invest in creating less lame souvenirs than this plastic bull-dump.
