Lots of great incoming goodies on the way from Diamond Select Toys, including maybe the coolest set of Minimates ever (hint- Predator).
Seriously cool are the new Predator blind-bagged figures. I saw these bad boys at Toy Fair this past February and now I can finally talk about them! They are as cool as they look, and feature some of the most stand-out designs to ever grace one of those little mini-figs. And even the human characters are cool as you’ll find a mix of guys from Predators and the original film, like Billy!
Lots of great stuff here though, not just Minimates. There’s a Lt.Worf bank from Star Trek: The Next Generation, the first figures from Fox’ hit Batman prequel Gotham, those awesome new Ghostbusters figures and more. Scroll on down for the full list of what’s set to arrive in stores over the next few months.
