Two New Series of Marvel Minimates are in Stores Now!
February 6, 2013

The 48th assortment of Marvel Minimates, available now in comic shops and specialty stores from Diamond Select Toys, is dedicated entirely to the world of the Fantastic Four! Team leader Mr. Fantastic comes with manipulative foe the Puppet Master, the hotheaded Human Torch comes with the explosive Blastarr, the force field-wielding Invisible Woman comes with a Moloid, and the rare variant set includes a Moloid and blind sculptress Alicia Masters!

Also in stores is the Best of Marvel Minimates Series 2! The first “Best of” assortment was such a success that DST has taken eight more superstars of the Marvel Universe – both heroes and villains – and made the absolute best Minimates they can make of each character, exclusively for the specialty market! In this new assortment, the Hulk comes paired with trickster god Loki, blind vigilante Daredevil comes with the maniacal Venom, the mercenary Deadpool faces off with the unrelenting Punisher, and the stretching Mr. Fantastic comes with his nemesis Doctor Doom!

Each 2-inch mini-figure features 14 points of articulation and comes with extra parts and character-specific accessories! Check out these shots of the toys in action, and pick up your set at your local comic shop or favorite online retailer today!

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.
