It is no secret that I am a huge Kevin Smith mark. I even write an article where I compare Silent Bob to Alley Sheedy#s character from the breakfast club.
So it is with great honor to say that MiniMates forward this amazing press release to us.
When a new Minimates toy line is born, it’s a special time for everybody. So Diamond Select Toys is going to give birth at the most special time of all! A new line of Minimates is debuting at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, and it’s from the cinematic world of Kevin Smith!
The first exclusive two-pack includes Jay and Silent Bob in black-and-white, just as they appeared in Smith’s groundbreaking debut film, Clerks. Future sets will be in black and white as well as full-color, and will be based on all of the View Askew universe films: Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Clerks 2 and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back! Each Minimate mini-figure stands approximately 2 inches tall, with interchangeable parts and accessories.
The set will be available at the Diamond Select Toys booth, #2607, at a price of $10. Comic-Con International runs from Thursday, July 18 to Sunday July 21, with a Preview night on Wednesday.
I can’t wait to review these guys and the rest of the series!
