The Age of Ultron is Upon Us! New Marvel Minimates Box Set Arrives Today!
Today, the newest set of Marvel Minimates hits comic shops and specialty stores, and it’s come all the way from the Age of Ultron! Depicting the tyrannical robot ruler as he appeared on the covers of the Age of Ultron maxi-series, this set of 2-inch Mini-figures also comes packaged with A.O.U. versions of Iron Man and Nick Fury, as well as the first-ever Minimate of Neil Gaiman’s supernatural comic character Angela!
Each Minimate mini-figure stands 2 inches tall with at least 14 points of articulation, and includes a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories. Angela comes with a sword and scabbard, Iron Man has a removable helmet and boot jets, Nick Fury has a rifle and jet pack, and Ultron sports six fully poseable arms!
The Disney Store Thaws Out the Winter Soldier as their Newest Marvel Select Figure!
Next spring, audiences everywhere will thrill to the next movie to come out of Marvel Studios Captain America: The Winter Soldier! The arrival on the big screen of the Winter Soldier, a fan-favorite character in Marvel comic books, has gotten many comic readers excited, and now Diamond Select has teamed up with the Disney Store to create the ultimate Winter Soldier collectible, based on his appearance in recent issues of his self-titled comic book!
Sculpted by Jean St. Jean, the comic-based Marvel Select Winter Soldier action figure will be exclusively available at the Disney Store, DisneyStore.com and MarvelStore.com starting in mid-December. The approximately 7-inch figure has 16 points of articulation, and comes with a pistol, machine gun and sniper rifle, as well as a shattered window display base. Figure and base come packaged in the Select line’s familiar display packaging, with side-panel art for shelf reference.
Captain Picard Gets Packaged! Plus: Star Trek on Ice!
Star Trek fans who have gotten the chance to play with the first two figures in the Star Trek Select action figure line have been waiting for their chance to get their hands on the next one, and hes almost here! Captain Jean-Luc Picard, from Star Trek: The Next Generation, will be joining the original series Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock in the 7-inch scale, and weve got packaging shots!
Dynamically sculpted by Patrick Pigott, Art Asylums lead Star Trek figure sculptor since 2003, Picards default stance is firing a phaser at an unseen foe, but seven points of articulation in his upper body allow him a wide range of expressive poses. Also, his hands and legs are interchangeable with other figures in the Select line, which means youll be able to give him Mr. Spocks classic Tricorder and Phaser. He stands atop a base representing the interior of a Borg cube, and the torso and arm of an exploded Borg rests at his feet. The parts are also removable from the base, so you can take them back to the Enterprise for study when the figure hits stores in late December.
Then, when Picard gets back from his mission, its time to kick back and relax at Ten-Forward, with the new Star Trek: TNG Silicone Tray. Hitting stores around the same time as Picard, you can fill it with water, chocolate or gelatin to make a frosty drink or a tasty snack, all in the shape of the Starfeet Insignia and the Enterprise-D! Make it so!
Stay tooned 😛
