I’ve managed not to get into the whole Minimate thing thus far–I’m nearly broke paying for what I already collect–but Rustin Parr was pushing them hard when I met with him this past weekend (it was quite fun time, also attended by Poesters PrkftTear, Ed, and the soon-to-be-famous-author Red Kryptonite). I’ve even received emails from readers (well, one email from one reader) asking for more Minimate coverage here on the site. Anyway, when I came across this news, I had to post it.
Diamond Select is going to be offering this cool Laboratory Playset, designed to work for pretty much any Minimate set from Marvel to Battlestar Galactica to even Ghostbusters. It even comes with an armed guard and an as-yet-unnamed animal Minimate, and can be reconfigured to work with standard 3 Â¾” figures.
So yeah–awesome. Have they announced a Minimate Ecto-1 yet? I may not be able to resist it.
