Mulder and Scully are returning to TV in an all-new mini-series, and this Minimates 2-pack captures the pair in their all-new looks!

These Minimates mini-figures of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are based on their 2016 reunion show, and depict Mulder in his unshaven appearance, and Scully with her blonde hairstyle.

Each mini-figure measures approximately 2 inches tall, with 14 points of articulation, and like all Minimates, their parts and accessories are fully interchangeable. Set includes weapons, badge hand and display bases, packaged in a full-color blister card. Designed by Art Asylum.

The truth is out there, and the truth is that The X-Files rules! Celebrate 23 years of The X-Files with this classically-styled two-pack of Vinimates vinyl figures.

Designed in the Minimates block-figure style, these 4-inch static figures depict Agents Mulder and Scully in their classic appearances, with their arms crossed, as if daring the world to give them a mystery they can’t solve.

Each figure features a ball-jointed neck, and both come packaged together in a full-color window box. Designed by Art Asylum!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
