Marvel Minimates Series 47

April 2012 - Of all the aliens that have invaded Earth in Marvel Comics over the years -- the Skrulls, the Kree, the Chitauri, the Dire Wraiths -- none are quite so unpleasant as the Brood. But that unpleasantness makes them the subject of some great stories, which is why the next series of Marvel Minimates features the Brood alongside their frequent foes, the Uncanny X-Men!

DST Announces The Expendables Minimates

The Expendables Get Collectable! Two Sets of Minimates Coming This Summer

April 2012 - On-screen, the stars of the instant-classic action film The Expendables are all larger-than-life, but in the real world, many of them are no bigger than you or me. Jason Statham? Five-foot-nine. Sylvester Stallone? Five-foot-nine-and-a-half. Jet Li? Five-foot-six-and-a-quarter. So translating all of them into 2-inch Minimates minifigures was a piece of cake!

This summer, DST will release two sets of Expendables Minimates, one at Toys "R" Us and one at comic shops and specialty stores.

The Expendables Minimates

The Toys "R" Us set will feature:
- Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone)

Marvel vs. Capcom Minimates Photo Contest Winners Announced

March 2012 - With two full waves of Diamond Select Toys' Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates line out in stores, DST decided to hold a photo contest, to see who could stage the best fight scene. The winner would get a set of Minimates from every line DST made, plus some rare Minimate prizes, and that brought out some talented photographers! After some tough deliberation, DST came up with a winner, plus three runners-up.

The first runner-up was Jason Castick. Jason used a little Photoshop to make it look like Deadpol was braining Dante from Devil May Cry with his own power meter -- an actual in-game move! The action-packed shot easily landed him in the top four.

The second runner-up was Neta-Lee Wolfman, who showed Deadpool standing over a defeated Dormammu, who seems to be sinking into a lava bed... made of popcorn? Great lighting, Neta-Lee, and great use of a delicious snack.
