Tonight we are taking a look at something a little different – Diamond Select Toys Vinimates line. These are essentially upscaled Minimates with less articulation. In the case of these DC ones, no articulation. Depending on the property and sub-line the Vinimates are based on will get you more or less movement. In particular, these are based on DC’s Arkham Asylum game and feature Batman, Harley Quinn and The Joker. Minimates always had great facial expressions, somehow capturing the essence of the character it’s based on in a tiny cartoon-ish 2d print. That gets ported over here and applied at the larger scale, they stand about 4 inches tall. And they look just as great.
These are fun items I’ve wanted to get and mess around with since they started dropping last year. While I won’t be going all in and hoarding them like vinyl and Pop! collectors do, I do like their style and will gladly be adding random pieces to the shelves as accents to my primary collection of figures.
Read on to check out some shots of the Arkham trio! These are out now at Comic Shops and select online retailers, there are near 100 out or planned across multiple licenses!
