"Crikey, those are aces! I love those minis, mate!" - In an effort to sell more of their products in the land down under, Diamond Select Toys has decided to rename their 'Minimates' line as 'Minis', in an effort to avoid the repetition of 'mate'. They will now be called 'Minis', mate.

The Minimates are 2" block-styled mini action figures, originally created by Art Asylum in 2002 and now released by Diamond Select, covering tons of fan-favorite licenses.

"Yeah, those are fair dinkum nice figures, mate" said the Australian representative of Diamond Select Toys. "I'm really keen on the relaunch of those figures under the new name, 'Minis', mate. I hope that blokes will buy them for their collections, or even that sheilas buy them for their ankle-biters. Maybe they'll start to collect them too! They're aces, mate."

We are told there are also plans the change the name of the 'Vinimates' line to 'Vinis' during 2024. No words yet if Playmates is planning a similar move,... mate.

Still better than the "Best 'Ah Deadly Animals Series So Far" or BADASS.
