When PiercingMetal was wandering the halls of Javits for the annual Toy Fair convention, we didn’t see a single toy from the at the time upcoming film “Avengers: Endgame” but now that the film has opened to a limited audience in California (it opens for the rest of us tomorrow so shhhhhhh if you are one of the lucky people who has seen it), the folks at DST are revealing their latest line of the popular Minimates. Let’s take a look at the Official Press and some images.
The Press Release:
Avengers Assemble! The Endgame is upon us, and everyone is on the edge of their seat! We may not know what’s going to happen, but one thing’s for sure, when we come out of the movie we’re going to want some cool collectibles of our favorite characters! Luckily, new Avengers Endgame Minimates have just assembled in Walgreens stores and comic shops nationwide!
Four two-packs are now available exclusively at Walgreens stores, each pairing two cast members from the sure-to-be-blockbuster film – Iron Man with Thanos, Black Widow with Hawkeye, Hulk with War Machine, and Quantum Suit Captain America with Quantum Suit Rocket. That last pack also includes alternate parts to turn Captain America into Thor, complete with Stormbreaker!
In comic shops now, a special exclusive Marvel Minimates box set brings four more figures – including alternate looks to create more characters – into the game! The set includes Tony Stark in his Quantum suit, with alternate heads for Hawkeye and Ant-Man; Black Widow with an alternate head for Nebula; Quantum Suit Hulk and Quantum Suit War Machine. Buy two sets to get all the bodies you need to make all the characters!
Each 2-inch block figure features 14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts. Find a comic shop at comicshoplocator.com!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I’ve seen the assorted collections of Minimates during the years of attending the Toy Fair, I can honestly say that I love the line of products. I don’t actively collect them but I occasionally get my hands on a couple to speak about here and I think its safe to say that the ardent collector can build up a nice set of them for any number of interesting properties. My favorites of course would fall to the superheroes stuff with the occasional hit movie representation. I wonder if DST makes a collectors carrying case like I used to have for my Star Wars action figures. I loved that and you could safely secure something like “24” of the figures in it. Doing this size carryall for the Minimates would let you fit about a hundred of them. Food for thought right? Now onto a larger matter of importance. Who is ready for “Avengers: Endgame”? I am psyched but based on a busy itinerary I will not be able to see this film until Monday. To see our numerous reports about the film just click HERE. I’ll see you next time.
