There’s a ton of new stuff landing in the pages of Previews magazine this month, including busts, statues, figures, and a very cool set of Minimates.
Granted, there are a lot of big name IPs in this new slate of Diamond Select announcements. But as a Transformers fan myself, the biggest (and also smallest) is the new lineup of Minimates.
As with previous releases, the new wave is all G1, and stars some massive bots. Grimlock, Blaster, Soundwave, and Megatron himself round it out. Also as usual, these are all 2″ and fully articulated, and are interchangeable too if you dig the idea of custom characters.
Again though, there’s a lotta neat stuff here. There’s a Star Wars jumbo figure of the original Luke Skywalker concept, a great looking statue of the Human Torch, and plenty more.
Scroll down to check out the full announcement, and pick up the new issue of Previews to secure yours through your local comics shop.
