Diamond Select Toys has announced plans to release Halo themed Minimates this fall! That’s right, your dream of Master Chief kicking the crap out of your battle damaged Spider-Man Minimate can finally come true.
In November 2001, Bungie and Microsoft brought the world “Halo: Combat Evolved”. The game became a worldwide sensation and helped rocket the “Xbox” to stardom. Since then, the franchise has continued to gain momentum with “Halo 2”, “Halo 3”, “Halo Wars”, and “Halo 3: ODST” (not to mention the DVD release of “Halo: Legends”). Now, as everyone waits in anticipation for Fall release of the prequel “Halo: Reach”, Diamond Select is proud to announce the inclusion of “Halo” into the Minimates universe!
To help launch the line this Fall, comic book and specialty stores will be offering a 4-pack which will include:
Spartan in Scout Armor
Elite in Assault Armor
Future announcements will bring great news concerning other Spartan armor classes from the various games (in your favorite multi-player color schemes), aliens & allies, and vehicles. We’ll also be bringing you news about our plans for a sneak peek/debut at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Of course we’ll keep everyone updated as more info becomes available.
