Minimates in Motion: Munsters, Star Trek and Santa Claus Vehicles Coming Soon!
July 23, 2012

The world of Minimates is growing by leaps and bounds every day — in fact, with all of the new properties getting Minimated, it’s gotten positively huge! Luckily, now there are more ways to get around that giant universe than ever! The Toys “R” Us-exclusive Knight Rider KITT Minimate vehicle just recently hit stores, and now there are three more Minimates-scale conveyances heading to stores this fall! Check out the next batch of mini-rides coming soon from Diamond Select Toys!

Munsters Koach Minimate Vehicles
The Munsters are going Mini! The next Minimates Vehicles will be the first-ever Munsters Minimates vehicle, the Munsters Koach! While Toys “R” Us has a kolor Koach with the standard Herman Minimate, comic shops and specialty stores will get an exclusive black-and-white version, with an exclusive Minimate of Herman Munster in his racing outfit! The Koach can accommodate multiple 2-inch Minimate figures, and is packed on a blister card.

Star Trek: The Original Series USS Enterprise Minimate Vehicle
Star Trek Minimates return! After a long absence, DST is bringing back Trek ‘Mates with their most spectacular Minimates vehicle yet — the starship Enterprise! With an opening bridge dome and a hidden Jeffries tube in the engineering section, the ship measures 10 inches long and includes an exclusive Minimate of Captain Kirk. Exclusively available at comic shops and specialty stores through the Previews catalog!

Santa’s Pirate Ship Minimate Vehicle
Christmas is coming, but it’s not coming in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. No, this year Santa Claus is on a boat! DST’s 2-inch Minimates mini-figure of ol’ Saint Nick comes with his festively painted pirate ship, which is packed with opening hatches, extending planks and removable sails (not shown). It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for the Minimates fan in your life, or for anyone who likes boats and Christmas. Exclusively available at comic shops and specialty stores!

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, 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.
