DST Includes A New Batch Of Universal Monsters From Their Minimates Mini-Figure Line

New postby Brian Massey » Thu Mar 15, 2012 8:46 pm

If your a fan of the historical and iconic Monsters of Universal, you'll be pleased to know that Diamond Select Toys has been working hard to expand their Minimates mini-figure line to include a new batch of monsters this year, as well as resurrecting a monster that has been tucked away in the vault. Check out all the details below.


The first specialty-exclusive 4-pack due out this fall is based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame (pictured above), Universal's first film adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel, released in 1925. It starred Lon Chaney as the abused bellringer Quasimodo, a mute, half-deaf hunchback who lives in the famed Paris cathedral. In the film, Quasimodo is coerced into kidnapping the beggar Esmeralda, which runs him afoul of the smitten Captain Phoebus. That set's characters include Quasimodo, Phoebus and the set-exclusive Esmeralda and "King of Fools" Quasimodo.


The second 4-pack is the long-awaited The Mummy set, based on the original Boris Karloff film. Released in 1932, The Mummy starred Boris Karloff as the resurrected mummy Im-Ho-Tep, who was entombed alive for attempting to revive a deceased princess. Now, passing as a modern Egyptian named Ardath Bey, he has found a woman who must be his love reincarnated. This set includes Im-Ho-Tep, his Sarcophagus, Princess Anck-es-en-Amon and the set-exclusive Helen Grosvenor.


There will also be an assortment of Universal Monsters two-packs available at Toys"R"Us, featuring some of the characters from these sets, as well as some exclusive characters. One two-pack will pair The Mummy's Princess Anck-es-en-Amon with an exclusive figure of archaeologist Henry Whemple (above), and another will present the stars of both films - Lon Chaney as Quasimodo and Boris Karloff as Im-Ho-Tep - in retro black-and-white (below).


Pre-order the two exclusive 4-packs today from your local comic shop or your favorite online retailer, and look for them and the Toys"R"Us two-packs in September.
