New Pulp Fiction Minimates Box Set Exclusively at Hastings Stores

New Pulp Fiction Minimates Box Set Exclusively at Hastings Stores

Everybody be cool! As winter sets in, we near the end of the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction, one of director Quentin Tarantino's earliest and most acclaimed films. Pulp Fiction remains a work of art, with endlessly quotable dialogue, intertwining plot lines (and timelines) and inspired performances by a stellar cast, and Diamond Select Toys has been been honored to translate, chapter by chapter, the world of Pulp Fiction into the language of Minimates mini-figures. Now, a brand-new Minimates box set has been released exclusively at Hastings stores and on GoHastings.com!

The new box set, entitled "Diner Showdown," includes main characters Jules and Vince (played in the film by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta) in "casual" T-shirts and shorts, rather than their trademark suits. The pair face off with robbers Pumpkin and Honey Bunny (portrayed by Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer), who decide to rob the diner they're all in at exactly the wrong moment.

Each figure stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and fully interchangeable parts. Accessories include the mysterious briefcase Jules and Vince are bringing to their boss, two coffee mugs, two pistols, two snub-nosed revolvers, a shouting head for Honey Bunny, four clear display stands and a spare set of empty hands for Jules.

This set joins the Pulp Fiction Minimates 2-pack, with Jules and VInce in their suits, and the Vince and Mia's Night Out Box Set, with Vince, Mia Wallace, Lance and Jodie. Upcoming box sets include the "Bonnie Situation," with Bloody Vince, Bloody Jules, Jimmie and Winston Wolf, and a set featuring Butch, Marsellus Wallace, Zed and the Gimp. Sets based on Tarantino's Kill Bill are also available.

Minimates have a long history with the movies, including sets based on such famous films as Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, Aliens, Marvel's The Avengers, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Sin City, The Lord of The Rings, Rocky, Platoon, A Fistful of Dollars, Desperately Seeking Susan, Game of Death and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Four of these Minimates would make up a new box set, available exclusively at select Toys"R"Us stores and online at Toysrus.com; the other two would go on to an unknown fate. Now, Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce the results of the poll!

The Infinity Box Set will be available exclusively at Toys"R"Us this month, and will include Space Suit Captain America, Armored Hulk, Thane and Thanos, all based on their appearances in Marvel's 2013 Infinity crossover and mini-series. Each figure stands approximately 2 inches tall and features interchangeable parts. Also included in the set are four clear display bases, as well as hairpiece, glove and shield accessories for Captain America.

For those who voted for Mark 38 Armor Iron Man or Ronan the Accuser, have no fear! Both of these figures will be available as part of a Marvel Minimates 2-pack exclusively at Toys"R"Us! As part of Series 19, Ronan will come with Iron Man in his new-fangled space armor. Additionally, Anti-Sinister Six Spider-Man will come with Mysterio, Payback Wolverine will come with a Sentinel and Quicksilver will come with The Vision!

BioWare and Diamond Select Toys Partner on Mass Effect Minimates for GameStop Stores

BioWare and Diamond Select Toys Partner on Mass Effect Minimates for GameStop Stores

Mass Effect is one of the gaming world's most epic franchises, with three installments that have taken gamers across the galaxy. Additional books, comics and an animated film have taken fans even deeper inside the world of the game, and now the sci-fi universe of the Mass Effect Trilogy is colliding with another giant universe – the universe of Minimates mini-figures!

Game creator BioWare and collectibles manufacturer Diamond Select Toys are uniting to release a full line of 2-inch Mass Effect Trilogy Minimates, and the first series will be exclusively available at GameStop stores and gamestop.com. Individually packaged in blind bags, Series 1 will include eight characters, each featuring 12-14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts.

"The opportunity to work on a world as big as the world of Mass Effect is very exciting," said Chuck Terceira, President of Diamond Select Toys. "Interpreting such a wide variety of human characters, alien races, armors and technology for the Minimates format inspires our designers and allows them to push the line into new and different areas. Factor in that many of us are big gamers, and we're like kids in a candy store."

The characters in Series 1 are:

  • Commander Shepard: a soldier for the Systems Alliance (male version)
  • Commander Shepard: a soldier for the Systems Alliance (female version)
  • Liara: An Asari scientist turned information broker
  • Tali: A female Quarian and mechanical genius who joins Shepard's squad
  • Garrus:  A male Turian and Citadel Security officer who joins Shepard's squad
  • Wrex: A Krogan bounty hunter and mercenary; one of the last Battle Masters
  • Ashley: A highly skilled Alliance Marine
  • The Illusive Man: A former mercenary; now leader of the pro-human group Cerberus

Each figure will include a display base, and most come with weapons, including the game's distinctive orange Omni-Tools. The Illusive Man will be the "elusive" character in Series 1, as he will be the rarest figure in the assortment.
