DST Reveals ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Minimates And More At C2E2
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.
Full release details haven't surfaced just yet, but DST and Art Asylum's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates are set to arrive in the fall of 2014. Unlike a lot of toys due out this summer/fall, these Minimates won't be based on the upcoming live action TMNT movie, but rather the current Nickelodeon CG animated series. Characters include Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, Shredder, Foot Clan ninjas, April O'Neil, and The Kraang (both in and out of their humanoid android bodies). Specified two-pack pairings haven't been announced just yet, but should surface before long.
Marvel Minimates series 59 is due out in October and will consist of four two-packs pairing Cyclops with Marvel Girl, Beast with Angel, Iceman with a Sentinel and (a short-packed) Bobby Drake with Sentinel.
The Spider-Man villains box set will be a retailer-exclusive and include Carnage, Doctor Octopus, Sandman and the Lizard. All four villains will come with character-specific accessories allowing for power displays and -- in the case of Cletus Kasady/Carnage and Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard -- transformative capabilities. No word on its precise release date yet.
The Retro Captain America figure sports a classic MEGO look from the '70s, and looks like it'll come packed solo in 2015 instead of as part of a limited edition collector's set like the Spider-Man that's arriving in October.
