Art Ayslum will be launching their new line of Marvel Minimates this June. Unlike their previous lines of Minimate's like the Rock line and Star Trek, these will only be 2" tall.
You will be able to buy these figures through several different outlets and in several different ways. Adam Unger from Art Ayslum gives us the break down as follows:
- Diamond Select Toys which will be distributing the figures through comic and specialty stores, and will be releasing the figures in 2-packs. Wal-Mart and KBKids.com will also be releasing the figures as 2-packs.
- KB Stores will be relasing the figures as 3-packs.
- Toys R Us will be relasing the figures as 4-packs with the possibilty of them having chaser packages with a mysterious 5th figure.
- Target stores will be selling the figures as single packs.
