Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes.

Wikipedia also mentions the Mummy, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Metaluna Mutant from This Island Earth, Ygor and Mr. Hyde (and Dr. Jekyll presumably). The canon list of Universal Monsters is pretty long though... there's always the chance that a few choice loopholes might get us Edgar Allan Poe and Abbott & Costello too laugh.gif

Loving this news. I would be all over iconic horror minimates. I just hope to all hopes that this line dont get canned like Godfather or Beverly Hills Cop.

My guess is that some of those will be simple TRU two-packs. Like the Metaluna Mutant and the mildly big headed alien guy. (I'd get these just for the purposes of MST3K the movie!)
However the ones out of this list most likely to be produced (Other than the confirmed Wolfman) that I can think of are Dracula (a given), Frankenstein (see Dracula), The Mummy, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (by fame alone). Though i do hope The Invisible Man makes it in. I mean seriously, he'd be a great little minimate.

This is a license I've hoped they'd get for a long time. It all sounds like great news, except for the 'once a year' part. I suppose that does keep the market from getting over-saturated, but it doesn't seem like it's nearly enough to satisfy the fans.

If this wasn't an annual series, I have to wonder how long it would last. Would it be like Ghostbusters which is seeming to be in its ending stages of life? Or would it have more Marvellian longevity?
Hmm. It's a great conundrum isn't it? However it does give us a tiny werewolf. So... Yeah I'm good. I mostly want those black and white versions though. That makes me SO happy!

My guesses for the Wolfman 4-pack:
  1. Wolfman
  2. Larry Talbot with cane
  3. Gwen Conliffe
  4. Meleva or Bela the gypsy

The Minibar mixes it up with the new Star Trek Legacy minimates. Beam on over to Shots From The Minibar to check it out
See where all the comic craziness began at Tales From The Minibar.

Creature on the left looks like Abomination. Sadly, based on this little picture, I might actually like the Kubrick version more.

WOW! I can't seem them well enough to know if I'll like them, but I'm very excited about this prospect. The Creature from the Black Lagoon is my FAVORITE monster movie (other than Frankenstein 1931 and Godzilla vs Monster Zero). This made my day!

Wouldja believe I just picked up my Creature Kubrick before sitting down at the computer and seeing this? AWESOME!

I can only hope the two-pack will have Lucas in it, so we can re-create all his blustering about the man-fish in the Amazon!

The only sad thing is that they're just going to be annually for Halloween. That's a whole year of wait time before the next 2 sets are released... a long time to get all those cool movies done.

Minimate scuba gear! Creature and Wolfman and any others will be most welcome additions to the collection.

I'm surprised these are going over so well, the Universal Monsters stuff has never interested me.

I think they are doing the right thing by making them a limited annual series.
Come see the all-new, all-different Minimates Central!

Anybody care to speculate on the yellowish creature. Is he from one of the sequels? Cause other that "the Creature Walks Among Us", I'm not familiar with the gillman having a different look.

EDIT:Just found this pic on the net...


I'm guessing the yellowish version is Gill from "Revenge of the Creature".
