We’re only a few more days away from San Diego Comic Con, the biggest geek event of the year! We’ll be covering a ton of great stuff this week here at DFAT, and one thing will be our friends over at Diamond Select Toys. Amongst some of their exclusives, you’ll also get to see the unveiling of their X-Men: Days of Future Past minimates!
[box_light]At this week’s Comic Con International in San Diego, Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will release their Marvel Minimates box set based on the classic X-Men comic storyline, “Days of Future Past.” Published in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142, the story showed a grim future where mutants were second-class citizens that had been largely exterminated by giant Sentinels, and it became one of the touchstones of the X-Men mythos.
The 4-pack of Minimates captures some of the storyline’s most important characters – Future Wolverine, Future Kitty Pryde, Mystique and a Future Sentinel. Each stands approximately 2 inches tall with a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, and we’ve taken some photos to show off all those parts! Check out the photos in the gallery, then come to booth 2607 on the show floor to pick up a set for $20, or check with your local retailer to see if they can order it in for you![/box_light]
