Diamond Select Toys is proud to announce the exclusive products they will be offering for sale at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, July 21-24, 2011. With an emphasis on DST’s popular Minimates brand of mini-figures and Femme Fatales line of statues, there will be plenty of products to appeal to fans of comic books, video games, fairy tales, beautiful women, pirates and toys in general. All will be available for purchase at the Diamond Select Toys booth, as well as at other select booths on the show floor.
The exclusive products are as follows:
– Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates Box Set – From the arenas of “Marvel vs. Capcom 3? come four of the game’s greatest heroes, as an exclusive four-pack of Minimates! Clad in their “Player 2? colors, Dante, Phoenix, Arthur and Deadpool each stand 2.5 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, sculpted by Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum.
– Alice: Madness Returns Minimate – The first toy from the long-awaited sequel to “American McGee’s Alice” makes its debut at SDCC! This 2.5-inch, highly poseable mini-figure is based on Alice’s look from “Alice: Madness Returns,” and is the only Alice Minimate that will be produced! Sculpted by Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum.
– Femme Fatales Alice PVC Statue – This new, darker repaint of the Femme Fatales 9-inch Alice statue offers another interpretation of how young Alice might have looked a decade or so after that first tumble down the rabbit hole. Sculpted by Sam Greenwell and limited to 100 pieces.
In addition to the box set, figure and statue, there will be four different individually bagged Minimates MAX figures given away throughout the show, while supplies last, as well as four Pirate Raiders Minimates that you can collect to create your own box set at the end of the weekend. A variety of Minimates and Femme Fatales posters will also be given away each day, and there will be a limited number of Minimate T-shirts available for sale at the Diamond Select Toys booth.
In addition to the above items, be on the lookout for a few other exclusive Minimate sets making their debuts on the show floor, as well as around the convention center!
I love the Minimate line. I make no secret of this fact. The compatibility of the paces make customization very easy (I made one of my girlfriend and I using existing parts), the price point of aroun $8 for two figures makes them affordable, and the size means that they can be put away and stored very easily.
I will be buying them all up and I am patiently waiting for more news on what the retailer exclusive packs will be (rumors include Ghostbusters). The only part that makes me nervous is the whopping EIGHT free giveaways and how I will make them all mine without resorting to eBay. We are currently in the golden age of Minimate releases so it does not surprise me that DST will give away that many to make as many people as possible aware of their line.
Here are few images of the items!
