Diamond Select announces MiniMates ComiCon Exclusives
With about six weeks until the annual geek confab in San Diego, Diamond Select has announced a series of ComiCon exclusives which include a rather “marvelous” collection of MiniMates…
The first collection is AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men Marvel Minimates Box Set. It includes Minmates for Hope Summers, Cyclops, Emma Frost, and a Juggernaut-esque Colossus. The set is inspired by Marvel’s latest crossover comic book series AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men (no kidding, huh?).
Next comes Spiderman Sewer Battle Pack. A two piece set which includes Spidey going head to head against a new villain known as the Lizard. It’s based on the storyline behind this summer’s blockbuster SONY film “The Amazing Spiderman.”
Shifting to the AMC hit series The Walking Dead, Minimates releases this Con exclusive of battle-damaged” Officer Rick Grimes and your basic lumbering zombie looking for a brain lunch.
Diamond Select is also releasing a new set of Minimates known as Battle Beasts this fall and to help push the new line, there’s this two pack featuring Vorin, heroic ramand his nemesis Zik, a dragonfly beast bent on destruction!
Other ComiCon exclusives include a PVC Vinyl savings bank of R2-R9 from “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace,” and a half bust of a web slinging Spiderman.
All exclusives will be available at Diamond Comic Distributors (Booth #2401) and Diamond Select Toys (Booth #2607). They’re all in limited quantities which we are certain will be parceled out daily after long waits in line. But you know that going in.
