Aliens Minimates 060

The newly released Aliens Minimates were a long time coming. It seems like we first glimpsed these figures ages ago. With the first series now available, it looks like that wait really paid off with some crazy good figures. The first series is being offered in an all new way as Diamond Select Toys released a counter friendly display. The display offers single packed figures in small window boxes, as opposed to 2-packs. Doing this allowed for DST to get these Minimates into retail establishments that would not normally carry them. The set features three human characters and three different Alien Xenomorphs. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Carter Burke X1
  • Dropship Pilot Spunkmeyer X1
  • Colonial Marine Mike Wierzbowski X1
  • Alien Warrior X4
  • Attacking Alien Warrior X3
  • Battle Damaged Alien Warrior X2

Diamond Select Toys sent along a full case for us to photograph and review. We have over 80 photos of the set. Read on to check out the images and my review.
