Each weekday, ComicsAlliance brings you a carefully selected variety of links from around the web about comics and comics-related media, including movies, video games, toys, and whatever else might be worth noting. Quite frankly, these are items you may just need to know about to have a productive day. Take a look at today's hand-picked links after the jump.
Get a look at this Friday's links, after the cut.
Diamond Select Toys unveiled a surprising amount of new Minimates and other figures this past weekend at C2E2 2014 in Chicago. Filling DST's booth were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates we saw at Toy Fair 2014 (but couldn't shoot at the time), along with the All New X-Men centric Marvel Minimates Series 59, an upcoming 8" Retro Captain America figure, and an upcoming Spider-Man villains Minimates box set.
Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum had a LOT of characters to choose from when putting together their X-Men: Days of Future Past Minimates line, but it seems the toymakers were able to narrow down their wave to just eight Merry Mutants from two time periods. Due out this summer are two packs pairing Future Professor X with Past Magneto, Future Magneto with Past Mystique, Future Wolverine with Future Storm, and Past Logan with Past Charles Xavier.

Diamond Select Toys had much to show at Toy Fair 2014, and while much of it couldn't be photographed (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates! Guardians of the Galaxy Minimates!), there was still plenty to take in. Coming soon from DST and Art Asylum are all new The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Godzilla, Sin City and The Walking Dead Minimates. There was also a TMNT bottle opener and pizza cutter shaped like Michelangelo, because a party isn't a party without a certified Party Dude. You can check out a selection of what DST had on display after the jump.
Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum's first series of Battle Beasts based on the IDW comic book by Bobby Curnow and Valerio Schiti introduced fans to a fresh take on the revived 1980s anthropomorphic animal adventure, but there's a whole lot more where that came from. This summer eight new dimension-displaced beasts will join the fray, including two warriors fans didn't see in the comic -- and we've got an early first-look.
Following the April 4 opening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will have toys at the ready in both 2 and 7" scales. Yeah, there's plenty of Cap to be had, but the most important thing to glean from all this is that there's going to be a Batroc the Leaper minimate.
