Diamond Select Toys Announce FEAR ITSELF Minimates

Posted by G-Man (36768 posts) - - Show Bio

Fear Itself was one of the biggest events in comics last year. It might be over but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of it. At least when it comes to toys.

Today Diamond Select has announced not one but two box sets of Marvel Minimates based on the story arc.

The first set features The Mighty (seen above) and includes Hawkeye, Odin, Spider-Man and Iron Man (not pictured). You can see that the versions of the heroes aren't the ones you've seen in the past. These are actually how they appeared at the end of the story in their final battle costumes with dwarf-forged uru-metal weapons. Or we should note, simulated dwarf-forged uru-metal weapons.

== TEASER ==

You can't have the good guys and reenact battles without some bad guys, right? Diamond Select Toys is also releasing a set for The Worthy.

The Worthy set features some characters that were transformed and includes Skadi (also known as Sin, the Red Skull's daughter); Mokk, Breaker of Faith (also known as Grey Gargoyle); Angrir, Breaker of Souls (also known as the Thing) and Cul, the Serpent (and Asgardian God of Fear).

These two sets are scheduled to arrive this summer at comic shops and specialty stores. Be sure to ask and pre-order yours today.

Nice concept anyway, even if the event that inspired this wasn't all that great.

Fear Itself was terrible, and I'm glad that it is all but forgotten now.

Was average, but not terrible.
