Diamond Select Toy's THE EXPENDABLES Minimates Coming This Summer
Published: April 24, 2012 - 7:24am
On-screen, the stars of the instant-classic action film The Expendables are all larger-than-life, but in the real world, many of them are no bigger than you or me. Jason Statham? Five-foot-nine. Sylvester Stallone? Five-foot-nine-and-a-half. Jet Li? Five-foot-six-and-a-quarter. So translating all of them into 2-inch Minimates minifigures was a piece of cake!
This summer, DST will release two sets of Expendables Minimates, one at Toys "R" Us and one at comic shops and specialty stores.
The Toys "R" Us set will feature:
- Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone)
- Trent Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
- James Munroe (Eric Roberts)
- Paine (Steve Austin)
And the Specialty set will feature:
- Lee Christmas (Jason Statham)
- Hale Caesar (Terry Crews)
- Mr. Church (Bruce Willis)
- Tool (Mickey Rourke).
Each set will come packed to the rafters with weaponry, with a dozen guns in each 4-pack, plus various knives and batons. As a bonus, DST will release two more sets based on Expendables 2 when the sequel hits theaters on August 17! Haven't seen the first Expendables? Rent it tonight, and find out more about the characters below!
