2012 SDCC Day 3 - Diamond Select Toys Minimates Panel

by Jay Cochran
July 14, 2012
Some of the team behind the popular Minimates line are here to unveil new products and answer your questions about the 2-inch, fully articulated mini-figures. From Marvel Comics to Battle Beasts to The Walking Dead, Diamond Select Toys director Chuck Terceira, Art Asylum founder Digger Mesch, and marketing supervisor Zach Oat will share insider info about all their upcoming lines.

Here are some highlights from the panel as well as images of the slides shown below in our GALLERY.

TRU Battle Beasts Minimates will have some colors amped up with some metalics added while the regular ones will be comic book accurate.

Bat and Moose BB 2-pack will not be released at specialty, only TRU.

There will be more villains besides scorpions and spiders for Battle Beasts

No Calico Jack 2-packs planned.

The Ulitmates Version of Marvel vs. Capcom is not part of the DST license.

Check out the slides shown during the panel below.

Universal Monsters Mole People minimate could be a possibility for 2013.

No Plans for DC Comic Minimates to return.

No plans for Mars Attacks Minimates at this time.

Look for Marvel Now designs to make their way into the Marvel Minimates line down the road.

ThunderCats will only be released as 4-packs. The next 2 sets will be released as NYCC exclusives through AFX.

They try to add extra parts for their Marvel Minimates to allow people to do more customizing.

No plans for ThunderCats Minimates vehicles.

DST's line of Battle Beasts other than name is totally separate from the original line and they have tried to stay away from those vintage features. With these Minimates they have a story to tell and want to play up the interchangeability features Minimates are known for.

GIJoe and Transformers Minimates will never happen. Masters of the Universe Minimates were asked about, they said they are pursing licenses and such but don't want to say anything that might get people's hopes up if it didn't happen, which to me makes it sound like MOTU could be something they are looking at and could happen????

Digger is working on a Kickstarter movie project called Agent 88 which DST will be doing some Minimates for.
