I’m amazed that this has managed to fly completely off my radar for so long. Thanks to Fujis for passing along this information.
Those who were with Minimates from the start will remember Digger, a former head honcho of Art Asylum. Well he’s been working on a pilot for a web series called Agent 88, the story of a
sweet old lady highly skilled British assassin living the quiet life in Los Angeles. Now he’s looking for help to produce it. So, he’s turned to recently popular Kickstarter to help generate funds.
How does this all tie into Minimates? Simple. Contributing to the project can net you rewards, including an autographed Agent 88 promotional Minimate, previously handed out at SDCC, as well as 10 Minimates of the primary cast of the show. Its unclear if this will go on to become an actual line of Minimates, or if these will go down in history as some of the hardest exclusives to obtain.
Those looking to find out more can check out this interview with Digger on Action Figure Hub, or check out the Agent 88 thread on Minimate Multiverse. Anyone looking to contribute to the project can visit the Kickstarter page.
