Awesome Toy Picks: Heralds of Galactus Minimates

Posted by G-Man (31700 posts) - - Show Bio

It's no secret we love toys here at Comic Vine. Each week we spotlight some of the coolest toys we can get our hands on. This week we're taking another look at some Minimates from Diamond Select Toys.

If you're familiar with the Minimates toys, you know how irresistible they are. Throw in Galactus and his heralds, Silver Surfer, Terrax, Morg and Nova and there's no way you can resist this set.

What you might not be able to notice is the silver seal at the top. That indicates that this is a Toys 'R Us exclusive. I ordered it online but checking the availability didn't turn up any results. Not even a "sold out" or "No longer available" message. Looking on ebay turns up several results. The retail was around $14 and you can find several close to that.

The second thing you might notice is I mentioned Silver Surfer but it appears he's not here. No, I wasn't mistaken. To make this even cooler, Silver Surfer comes in scale to Galactus!

What about the other Heralds? Check out Nova (Frankie Raye), Terrax and Morg.

The great thing about the Minimates is they have a great amount of detail considering how small in scale they are. And you just have to love that tiny Silver Surfer.

And be sure to check out our other Awesome Picks this week: Sideshow Collectibles Sandtrooper and Republic Clone Commander.

Update

Turns out there is a way to get Nova's hair to fit better. The tip can be removed but you cannot see the seam. It's amazing at how well it's hidden. This obviously makes more sense.

I am not really a fan of these kind of toys myself.

Not really a fan of toys and other objects like that.

I don't like having things which are full of dust later.

@wowylied:

Everything will be full of dust, if not put in to an airproof space.

Really nice ones, I must confess.

I take pride in your collection and dust them once a week while cleaning house, but I too am not a fan of these "Minimates".

Minimates are kind of cool if you want to amass a lot of figures relatively cheap.

I would Expect Galactus to be a bit bigger, and do you think they will do all of the Heralds?

That Galactus and mini Surfer are adorable! Awesome Terrax too. He's always been one of my favorite heralds.

I like the Heralds, but Galactus should be much bigger.
