While it seems I’ve (obviously) fallen a little bit short of my goal of completing my New York Toy Fair 2016 coverage before the end of February, I still want to finish discussing everything shown as quickly as possible. And to further that goal, I’m going to combine all of my many Diamond Select Toys Marvel Minimates photos into one giant preview article today, including new Minimates from Netflix Daredevil & Jessica Jones, Civil War, Giant-Size X-Men, Walgreens Series 2.5 and more!
Not only did Diamond Select show off a multitude of never-before-seen Marvel Select figures, Femme Fatales, Marvel Premier Collection and the debuting Marvel Gallery statues, but they also brought no several dozen brand new Marvel Minimates to show off!
These eight mini figures will be spread out across two four-figure box sets–one for Daredevil and one for the Netflix Jessica Jones series.
Up until now, only Funko has tackled Netflix Daredevil toys, so it’s really exciting for fans that Diamond Select Toys is producing such fun versions of the main characters. And hey–is this the first Foggy Nelson figure ever?!
The Minimates Jessica Jones set will include Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Kilgrave and Trish Walker. An MCU Luke Cage toy–Sweet Christmas!!
The “Best Of” Marvel Minimates Series 1 and Series 2 sets are also coming back for another run, making iconic characters like Deadpool, Spider-Man, Loki, Ant-Man, Hulk, Iron Man and Daredevil readily and easily available once again.
This series includes classic Minimates of Cyclops, Sunfire, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Colossus and Banshee.
We finally got a new Banshee Minimate figure not too long ago, but I’m a big fan of Sean Cassidy, so I’ve no problem with another. And I reckon newer collectors won’t mind having a fresh shot at all these classic X-Men figures either.
And so, four dozen-plus figures later, we find ourselves at the end of the Marvel Minimates displayed at New York Toy Fair 2016. I’ll post link here and to the Marvel Toy News Twitter/Facebook Pages as these new waves go up for sale, so stay tuned if these photos whet your appetite for any of these mini-figures.
And on that note: what do you think of the bulk of this year’s new DST Minimates, Marvel collectors? Will you be picking up the Netflix Jessica Jones or Daredevil box sets, the revisited Giant Size X-Men, or any of the other series that Diamond Select Toys showed off at Toy Fair this year?
