Note: The figure totals in the right column will indicate the total Minimates in a given wave. This will lead to some figures being counted more than once. For example the first Spider-Man Minimate was in Wave 2, the TRU Box Sets, the Single Packs, etc. Simply adding up the numbers will result in Spidey being counted for every pack he has been in. I'm working on fixing this, but my SQL-fu isn't yet up to the task.
