Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Diamond Select Toys Partner on Tomb Raider Minimates (Update)

Diamond Select: Jay Cochran - 2013.03.19
UPDATE: BBTS has released a new image showing all the figures in this series. Check it out below.


On March 5th, Square Enix launched Tomb Raider, which stars one of the world’s most popular video game characters, Lara Croft. The game tells her origin story, and depicts her journey from untried and untested 21-year-old to hardened survivor. To mark this new vision of a global icon, Diamond Select Toys have teamed up with developer Crystal Dynamics to create a line of Tomb Raider Minimates for their long-running toyline.

Currently in its 11th year, Minimates are a 2-inch block figure line that has encompassed dozens of brands, from the Avengers to the Ghostbusters to the Expendables. With 14 points of articulation and a ton of extra parts and accessories, Minimates offer a full play experience in a very compact package, and the world of Tomb Raider will take Minimates into unexplored territory when the first series of figures is released this summer.

The first series will have two overlapping assortments, one at Toys “R” Us and the other at comic shops and specialty stores, with a total of 12 different Minimates, to collect. A two-pack of Lara Croft with Molotov Scavenger will be available at all outlets, as will a “Battle Distressed” Lara with Armored Scavenger. Specialty stores and comic shops will also get two exclusive two-packs, in which Lara’s mentor Roth and Priest Malik are each paired with a top-secret character from the game. Finally, Toys “R’ Us will get their own exclusive sets, one an army-building pair of Scavengers, the other an army-building pair of mystery opponents.

Each two-pack will come with character-specific accessories, ranging from weapons to cell phones to Molotov cocktails – all based on items that appear in the game itself. Look for the figures to arrive on store shelves this summer.
