The guy who created The Walking Dead also wrote wrote a superhero saga entitled Invincible. Robert Kirkman told the story of a half-alien hero living in the shadow of his famous father. Invincible recently passed its 100th issue, and Diamond Select Toys plans to commemorate the occasion with a box set of Minimates. Invincible, Atom Eve, Omni-Man and Allen the Alien will each stand 2-inch high and feature 14 points of articulation. Look for these to release in the fall or you can preorder the set here.
Last week we showed you packaged pics of Star Trek Select Spock. Now it’s Captain James T. Kirk’s turn. He comes with a part of the Engineering area of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and can be displayed in combat with Khan from the classic episode, “Space Seed.” Khan himself is part of the display base and not removable. Kirk comes with a second set of hands, a broken phaser and a control rod, as well as a second set of legs. He beams down in June or you can preorder him here.
Art Asylum has recently made a few changes to its Star Trek action figure line. The company has decided to focus more on display than articulation. Take for instance the upcoming Spock, complete with interchangeable legs for standing and squatting. It comes with a diorama cave backdrop and the Horta alien from the classic TOS episode “The Devil in the Dark.” He also features two different head sculpts, interchangeable hands and a tricorder. He will beam down in June or you can preorder him here.
In 1985, the producers of ThunderCats kicked off the second season with a 5-part miniseries that introduced several new characters including Bengali, Lynx-O, Pumyra, Ratar-O, and Ro-Bear Bert. These characters will now make up a new wave of Minimates from Icon Heroes and Art Asylum. Perhaps in the next wave of ThunderCats Minimates we can get a Hachiman? The set will arrive in October or you can preorder them here.
