Art Aslyum and Diamond Select Toys' Minimates brand has come a long way since its genesis as a 3" figure line in 2002, adopting dozens of iconic licenses and producing hundreds of blocky toys that balance detail, articulation and accessories at a 2" scale. To celebrate 10 years of success, the toymakers are taking to New York Comic Con 2012 from October 11-14 with a special exhibit, panel and commemorative Minimate giveaway.

The exhibit detailing the company's history will be on display for the entire show in room 1B02 with visitors receiving "one free promo Minimates from the company archives," while supplies last. The Minimates panel will take place Oct. 14 at 10:45 a.m. in room 1A06 and gift those with children's badge's a free Battle Beast Minimate. Those who can't swing either activity needn't worry, though, as white Minimate blank figures sporting a special 10th Anniversary deco will be given out (one per customer) at the DST booth, #2167.
