Toys! Mini-Marvel monsters in Diamond’s “STRANGE TALES” lineBooks/Art/Culture,News Chris Alexander
The strangest set of Diamond Select’s Marvel Minimates ever, just got a little stranger…and your inner 10 year old has every right to be excited.
Mystical Marvel comics anti-hero Dr. Strange takes the spotlight on the new packaging for the STRANGE TALES box set, featuring supporting player figures of First Appearance Blade, Werewolf by Night and Morbius the Living Vampire, all staples of Marvel’s groundbreaking 1970s cycle.
Due to arrive in April, the set of four “Minimates” includes some new, character-specific accessories, like Blade’’s wooden stakes (including one with a throwing effect!), a flight base for Morbius, and Dr. Strange’s spell-casting hands. Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall and has 14 points of articulation to re-create all of the classic Marvel covers of the 1970s.
