The final chunk of 2013 should be a boon to Thunderbolts fans and, um, Undeadheads? who dig Minimates. Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will release a special Marvel Minimates Zombie Villains Box Set in October, followed by a Marvel Now! Thunderbolts Box Set in January of 2014.

Minimates collectors may want to secure some clear shelf space before San Diego Comic-Con on July 17-21, especially if they're keen on Iron Man and Deadpool. Action Figure Xpress has announced an exclusive new "Deadpool Assemble" box set packing Cable-Pool, Captain Ameri-Pool, Thor-Pool and Phonics-Killer Iron Deadpool, plus a massive Iron Man 3"Hall of Armors" 10-pack that stocks eight of Shellhead's most iconic movie suits, along with 'mates of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts.

Good news for those of you who like standing in lines! Diamond has announced its exclusives for next month's San Diego Comic-Con International, with variant covers for comics like Adventure Time and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, as well as toys like plastic bank limited to 1500 pieces with the somewhat dubious description of being "a fan-favorite repair droid from Naboo."
While the first three ThunderCats Minimates box sets focused on the original 1985-1989 animated series' best-known heroes and villains, it looks like the newest round of characters will be decidedly more... eclectic. This September Icon Heroes will roll out a Previews-exclusive "ThunderCats, Ho!" box set packing Pumyra, Lynx-O, Bengali and Ratar-O, along with a non-posable Ro-Bear Bert figure.
