Minimates introduces the first series of Mass Effect mini-figures

The iconic gaming experience is here in 3D miniature form! Check out the Mass Effect Minimates Series 1, the very first collection of pint-sized heroes from the popular video-game trilogy. Diamond Select Toys brings us these tiny pals that measure just two inches each! They’re the ideal pick-me-up for your collection.

Designers Art Asylum have brought us Commander Shepard (with John and Jane heads), Cerberus officer Miranda Lawson, “Pirate Queen” Aria T’Loak and a zombified human Husk. Each character features 14 points of articulation, as well as fully interchangeable parts and accessories. So what are you waiting for? Order them before they’re all gone!


Star Trek Figures: Worf & Gowron and Captain Picard

With the release of the Star Trek Reboot/Alternate Universe movie in 2009, a franchise that had seemingly lost a lot of its mainstream appeal was given a much-needed booster shot and has returned to the public consciousness–not just the minds of the Trekkers and Trekkies (oh, there’s a difference). Naturally, this new wave of interest has been followed by DVD re-releases, the formation of Star Trek communities like ONTD Star Trek, a renewed interest in the stars of the original series and beyond and, of course, toys!

We’ve just gotten new shipments of two popular items to add to our Star Trek section, so check ’em out!

The first is a two-pack featuring Klingons Lieutenant Commander Worf and Chancellor Gowron, both standing about 6 inches tall and featuring some pretty impressive likenesses by Diamond Select. The figures come with some very cool Klingon weapons and are clad in series-accurate garb, based on their appearances in Deep Space 9. Next up…

In honour of the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Captain Picard is here in action figure form by Diamond Select, accompanied by the command chair he occupied for so many seasons on the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D. Rightfully referred to as a milestone figure, it features 16 points of articulation and is an Art Asylum sculpt.
