Minimates & Alice! Our pals at Diamond Select Toys sent us some pictures. Since there aren't a heck of a lot of magazines printing figure pictures, and we like Minimates, here they are.
Of the Minimates, they say: "Looking for something new to park in your Minimate-sized garage, or perhaps your tiny boat slip? Diamond Select Toys has a fresh new line of Minimates vehicles for the 2012 model year. New road-going choices include KARR (Knight Automated Roving Robot) with Garthe Knight and Super Pursuit Mode KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) with Michael Knight from the classic Knight Rider TV series! For those of you who prefer the boating lifestyle, we have a new addition to the Calico Jack's Pirate Raiders line, The Vendetta with Undercover Anne Bonny! All of these exciting new 2-inch scale vehicles come on a blister card and will be available at a comic shop or specialty store near you in January. You won't even need a test drive!"
But wait, there's more! They sent some pictures of the new Alice: Madness Returns figures, originally previewed over the last few conventions.
This is their copy on that, which, rather than rewrite, I'm just going to paste in here. "As revealed [last week] on Kotaku.com, Diamond Select Toys is heading down the rabbit hole! Eleven years after her first adventure, American McGee's Alice is back in Wonderland, looking for the villain who has corrupted the realm once again, and this time Diamond Select Toys is there to capture the game's fiendish designs! Based on the game American McGee's Alice: Madness Returns from EA and Spicy Horse, this assortment of 7-inch scale figures includes Alice, the Cheshire Cat and a Card Guard, and each figure is fully articulated and comes in oversized collector packaging. All figures are in scale to each other, and Alice comes with her Vorpal blade, Hobby Horse and Pepper Grinder weapons as accessories. The figures will only be available in specialty stores and comic shops, and DST has made a special variant figure of Alice in Hysteria mode for Diamond Comics Distributors' Previews catalog. Painted to re-create the invincible berzerker state she enters in the game, Hysteria Alice also comes with uniquely painted Vorpal blade, Hobby Horse and Pepper Grinder weapons. Look for them this summer!"
Other new developments from Diamond lately have included a Battle Beasts countdown clock indicating something of some sort will happen in March, and I have no idea when those swell Munsters Minimates are going to hit.
