@CollectDST Goes Looking for the Truth with X-Files #Minimates and Vinylmates http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/collectdst-goes-looking-for-the-truth-with-x-files-minimates-and-vinylmates/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/collectdst-goes-looking-for-the-truth-with-x-files-minimates-and-vinylmates/#respond Thu, 08 Oct 2015 15:00:54 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=126998 DSTXFilesMM1

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!

Marvel Minimates Animated Series 1 will feature four different two-packs, each with show-specific packaging design:

  • From Avengers Assemble, that show’s two-pack will pair Hulk and Captain America, with alternate faces for each, plus a shield and an unmasked hairpiece for Steve Rogers.

CapHulk1

  • From Guardians of the Galaxy, a two-pack of Star-Lord and Groot will come with a 1-inch micro-figure of Rocket Raccoon, as well as a blaster and a mask for Star-Lord.
