Diamond Select Toys has announced two new Marvel Minimates Boxed Sets based on the recent Marvel Comics “Fear Itself” story-line. Each boxed set will feature four characters each from the The Worthy and the Mighty. Here’s what DST/AA had to say about the latest Marvel Minimates to join the ever-expanding line of 2-inch action figures:
The Only Thing You Have to Fear is Not Getting These “Fear Itself” Marvel Minimates!
One of the biggest comic events of 2011 — one whose effects are still rippling through the Marvel Universe — was Fear Itself. The massive Marvel Comics crossover, which saw eight mystical hammers fall into the hands of the world’s worst villains (and some of its greatest heroes, as well), gave us some amazing battles… as well as some sweet new costumes! To commemorate the Earth-shattering storyline, Diamond Select Toys is releasing two box sets of Marvel Minimates: The Worthy and The Mighty!
The Worthy box set includes Cul, The Serpent (the Asgardian god of fear); his herald Skadi (a.k.a Sin, the Red Skull’s daughter); Mokk, Breaker of Faith (formerly the Grey Gargoyle); and Angrir, Breaker of Souls (formerly the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing). The Mighty box set includes Asgardian All-Father (and Cul’s brother) Odin, as well as Spider-Man, Hawkeye and Iron Man in their final battle costumes, with their dwarf-forged uru-metal weapons. (Iron Man not shown.) Look for these to arrive this summer at comic shops and specialty stores near you! Pre-order today!
