Fans have been long hoping for Marvel Netflix Daredevil TV Series Figures and collectibles. Now, they’ll be able to get their own miniature Daredevil figures from Diamond Select Toys. Marvel.com has revealed the Daredevil TV Series Minimates Box Set! You get four figures including Daredevil (black suit), Foggy Nelson, Claire Temple and Wilson Fisk. Here’s more info on the set:
Daredevil, in his black costume, includes alternate parts to transform into blind lawyer Matt Murdock while Nurse Claire Temple comes with an alternated masked head, hood and gloved hands. Rounding out the set are Matt’s partner, Foggy Nelson, and Wilson Fisk himself. Each Minimates figure stands 2-inches tall and features 14 points of articulation, packaged in a full-color window box!
You can see the first image of the figures by reading on.
The first assortment of blind bagged Predator Minimates are now available at comic and specialty shops. These are available via a counter display, which hold 18 blind bagged figures. There are a total of eight different figures in the assortment. Included are Billy and the Jungle Hunter Predator (masked, unmasked and thermal) from Predator, the City Hunter Predator (regular and battle damaged) from Predator 2, and Edwin and Cuchillo from Predators. Edwin is the chase figure and is limited to just 1 per assortment. A few of these are the same as (or variations of) the figures available in the Predator Minimates Series 1 2-Packs.
I had a chance to shoot the entire assortment. After the jump you can check out over 70 photos and a review of the Predator Minimates Counter Display.
In the original Dracula novel by Bram Stoker, Lucy Westenra is a victim of Dracula, who is slowly draining her blood, causing the young woman to become gravely ill. While Van Helsing attempts to save her, she is ultimately killed by Dracula, becoming a vampire herself. She begins to stalk an feed on young children, draining their blood slightly, but ultimately dooming them to become vampires themselves if she continues. Van Helsing intervenes and ultimately releases her from her undead nightmare by driving a stake through her heart, decapitating her and stuffing her mouth full of garlic, which would prevent Dracula from resurrecting her again. .
Lucy Westenra is the third figure from the latest wave of Universal Monsters Select Figures from Diamond Select Toys. The new figure from Diamond Select Toys re-imagines Lucy as a monster hunter. With the help of Van Helsing, she is able to control her bloodlust and use her vampiric strengths to hunt the monsters. She’s been out for a bit, and is readily available at comic and specialty shops now. I finally had a chance to review this figure, and I have over 45 high resolution images. Read on to see the gallery and check out my thoughts.
