Minimates are the most detailed, most poseable mini-figures in the world. Even though they’re only two inches tall, they have 14 points of articulation, which means you can pose them however you want! And with superheroes, pirates, firemen, soldiers, planes, cars and boats available, there’s no end to the fun you can create!
When they first appeared in 2002, Minimates stood 3 inches tall and included characters from Star Trek, Dark Angel, the films of Bruce Lee and various rock stars. The following year, the smaller, 2-inch Minimate body debuted, and so did the Marvel Comics line, which is still going strong today! The Lord of the Rings Minimates were actually available in three different sizes, but Rocky, 24 and Terminator all used the smaller body type, and it became the standard. Vehicles were introduced alongside a line of DC Comics Minimates, and more vehicles were made for the Battlestar Galactica and Speed Racer lines. http://www.minimates.com/our-story/ http://www.minimates.com/our-story/ http://www.minimates.com/our-story/Today, Pirate Raiders and Mobile Action Xtreme join Marvel, Marvel vs. Capcom, Halo, The Real Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and Universal Monsters to form one of the most diverse line-ups in the toy’s history!
