There will be free posters given out for them both to sign, and the Comic-Con edition of issue #1 will be available for purchase!
On Saturday at 1:30, in Meeting Room 8, Diamond Select will host a panel, “Minimates Turn 10,” which is all about – you guessed it — Minimates! DSTChuck and DSTZach will answer your questions about everything Minimate-related, from Marvel to Battle Beasts to Thundercats to Universal Monsters!
