Predator Minimates

Recommended Posts

Diamond Select Toys is introducing several new products including new Reel Wear from film properties with plenty more on the way. They’ll be expanding kitchen ware, including TMNT, Godzilla, lunchboxes and things that will hark back to earlier times and be more “replica-based”. Aliens will expand to minimates, bottle openers, and a line of banks. Their new license is Predator, expanding to minimates, and bottle openers. More will be coming with Godzilla themes and My Little Pony. Nightmare Before Christmas is coming for Halloween in minimates, with the Jack promo for ComicFest 2014 but a full assortment in 2015. Kill Bill is already in shops but action figures are currently being approved by Quentin Tarantino. They’ll also be doing action figures for Pulp Fiction. Pathfinderproducts are coming, and also a Zenescope-approved Grimm Fairy Tales minimates set. There will be a full line of TMNT merchandise coming as well and blind-bag minimates. Their biggest announcement is select figures for Ghost Busters. Actual likenesses of the actors will be used, similar to Universal Monsters, the full set of collector’s items will only be available at comic outlets, not from other locations. They are looking to have a light and sound version of Electronic vehicles, more minimates, and banks.

Very cool.

I'm shocked.

Okay, not really. It's a no-brainer.

I just hope it doesn't take slots away from the Alien franchise. I'd actually have preferred they exhaust that before jumping onto Predator.

I don't think it will take anything away from Alien. If anything it will allow for more packs for both franchises. I don't think they'll be able to sell Alien vs. Predator packs but to have an Alien wave come out the same time as a Predator wave is a great way to do the crossover without doing the crossover, if you catch my meaning.

I'm sure we'll get more news this weekend from NYCC if Zach doesn't come in and clear it up here beforehand.

At one hand, my wallet will suffer far more. On the other, the possibility of having a display of Shepard and his crew forming an uneasy alliance with the Yautja, to battle the Xenos.

Question: Right after the Ghostbuster Select announcement, it says something about more minimates. Does it mean more minimates in general, or more Ghostbuster minimates?

Specifically more Ghostbusters minimates. The article has an image showing "More Minimates" listed on the Ghostbusters slide.

Predator is my second most wanted minimates line. MOTU is number one. I wonder what is all included in the license? Is it Predator 1 and 2, or does it include Predators and the new Predator movie coming out? Aliens vs. Predator would be awesome too even though the movies kinda sucked. It would get us a Predalien though if they do make them based on the Aliens vs. Predator movies. Also does that mean I will finally get a Blaine minimate?? Heck, I want Dutch and the rest of the crew too. Damn I'm so excited to hear the news.

Also excited to see get a predator too.... I guess.

Awesome sauce! If they look even half as good as those customs from a few years back, I am going broke!

If the pace of the Alien line is any indication, you've got about a year to save up. I guess Fox is pretty picky.

Actually for the AvP stuff I was thinking of the Dark Horse comics for inspiration. But the movie Predators would be cool to get.

Oh man, I just thought of the awesomeness of getting both an Aliens AND Predator 2 Bill Paxton!

Awesome news. The Predator is cool and all, but what I really want are all of the humans from the first movie.

Same here. I'm hoping for boxed sets:

Predator

Dutch

Mac

Billy

Cloaked Predator

Dillon

Blane

Poncho

Something like that.

so cool, I hope we get dutch and carl weathers so I can rip his arm off, oh and Tito, cause he ain't afraid of no man. Van Damme having another minimate would be cool too!

I also noticed the DC portion did NOT say anything about minimates, how weird that they would do that.
