New Hulk-Themed Marvel Minimates Box Set is Strongest Box Set There Is!
November 20, 2012

Only a select few Marvel characters have been given “Through the Ages” box sets entirely dedicated to them: Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine and soon Venom will make the cut. Well, the next “Through the Ages” set has been announced by Diamond Select Toys, and it features Marvel’s heaviest hitter, the Hulk! Hulk up your Minimates collection with these four legendary and exciting new Hulks!

Four figures representing different eras in Hulk’s life are included in the set:

– Joe Fixit, his grey-skinned enforcer persona from his time in Las Vegas; his Minimate will have a removable jacket, hat and tommy gun;
– Maestro, his evil future self who has defeated all of Earth’s heroes; he will include a removable cape, crown and a trophy display;
– Barbarian Hulk, from his time living in Subterranea among the Moloids;
– Composite Hulk, when he was briefly merged with his red counterpart.

This set will be released in spring 2013 to comic shops and specialty stores only, and will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, so reserve a set with your local shop or your favorite online retailer!

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.
