New TMNT and… Spongebob?!?!

DST has revealed images of their upcoming second series of TMNT minimates and an upcoming Spongebob series.

The new TMNT set is as follows:

-The Turtles (with new expressions)


-Casey Jones


-Chris Bradford

-The Normans


These are pretty exciting (especially Splinter and Casey) but I do question the same Turtles with different expressions. I’ll still probably pick them up (and hopefully start review at some point), but I would have liked to see some increased variety.


And the more shocking reveal is the new Spongebob series. The characters are as follows:

-Spongebob and Sandy

-Patrick and Squidward

-Mr. Krabs and Perch Perkins

-Grandpappy Redbeard and orange Perch Perkins (variant).





Some pretty surprising reviews here. Sound off with comments, thoughts, and questions below.


Caption Contest: War

For this contest, create two armies of minimates against one another.

They don’t have to relate (Zombies vs. TMNT is fine) but it might help with captions.

Rules are as follows:

1) Send in the picture to minimateheadquarters@gmail.com before the 18th of December

2) More than 8 minimates in the picture.

3) Keep it kid friendly, ok?


That’s all for now. I’ll try to update this with an example soon.

TRU Poll Results and NEW Series

The results to the Infinity Box Set are released alongside images and are as follows:



-Space Armor Captain America

-Space Armor Hulk


-Thane, Son of Thanos


Alongside this, news of a new series of two packs exclusive to TRU has hit with pictures

They are as follows:


-Anti Sinister Six Spider-Man and Mysterio (!!)



-Space Armor (GotG) Iron Man and Ronan the Accuser (Which were the other options of the poll, oddly enough)



-Payback Wolverine and Classic Sentinel



-Marvel Now Vision and Quicksilver

This is enormously exciting especially considering how TRU hasn’t carried their own series in quite some time. Expect to see these before the end of the year.

Happy Thanksgiving!



The folks at Minimate Headquarters would like to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving.


Also, line-ups for the Avengers: Age of Ultron series of minimates are out and are as follows:

-Iron Man and Black Widow

-Thor and Captain America

-Hawkeye and Ultron

-Long Coat Hawkeye and Sub-Ultron

While these are exciting (especially the Hawkeyes), they do raise a couple of questions. Where’s Hulk? Scarlet Witch? Quicksilver? Baron Strucker? Hulkbuster Iron Man? My best guess would be a couple of TRU packs (Hulkbuster Iron Man and Hulk and the Twins), but their not being in the regular series worries me. We will keep posting as we find more details.

Some pictures of upcoming Walking Dead, Aliens, and Jay and Silent Bob: Art Asylum

Finally, a new photo contest will start next week. Suggestions are welcome, but I already have something in mind.

NYCC 2014: Marvel Minimates Wave 60

DST revealed wave 60 of their Marvel Minimates line at NYCC, which is themed around the X-Men. The pairings are as follows:

Wolverine (with Forge parts) vs. Blob

Storm (with Psylocke parts) vs. Avalanche


Banshee (with Gambit parts) vs. Pyro

Jubilee vs. Destiny


Some awesome pairings that fill in some gaps in the X-Men’s roster as well as for the Brotherhood. Plus, with the alternate character parts for the X-Men (and the different looks for the Brotherhood), all four of these sets will warrant two purchases, especially when new characters in matching costumes are concerned.

Ask DST #252: Revenge of the Minimates!

Pretty long this time, so here’s a link for  now. If possible, I will summarize it at a later date:
