Summer 2015 is going to be a big one for fans of Diamond Select’s Minimates line, but the little figures are far from all that the company has in store.
As you can see, the new series of Aliens Minimates is kind of awesome. Okay, it’s all kinds of awesome actually, and probably is already on a few fans wish lists for this coming Summer. As if the chestburster wasn’t enough- Apone makes this a set to have. There’s lots more waiting to take your cash in the warmer months of 2015 though, including a series of Minimates based on the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron feature film, a new Marvel Select Hulk, more Walking Dead ‘Mates, and the first series of Dragon Age Minimates!
Oh, and for those looking for some possible light Age of Ultron spoilers, you might want to check out the description on those Minimates below. Iron Legion? Multiple Ultrons? Says a bit about where the film might be heading.
All in all, it should be a pretty happy time for fans of DST’s bigger licenses, not just Marvel fans. Here’s what’s on tap:
