Diamond Select and Hasbro: beyond Minimates, and beyond Transformers/GI Joe!
Longtime Minimates manufacturer Diamond Select Toys and Hasbro are teaming up to deliver various products based on Hasbro’s time-tested brands in 2021!
While what’s been fully revealed so far is Minimate-based, DST recently announced the full range of their license coverage, and it’s pretty promising.
So far, what was previously known about is a Minimate set of four featuring non-converting G1 versions of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Shockwave, and Starscream (and one has to wonder about more coming, if only to get a Megatron). DST’s Zach Oat has also mentioned that a GI Joe Minimates set has “already been designed”.
However, DST and Hasbro have partnered up with a broader range than these classic brands — and it’s not just Minimates.
DST has announced that the partnership with Hasbro also covers “Power Rangers, classic animated Dungeons & Dragons, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering and Jem and the Holograms”, with various product types that feature retro-style designs and updated, modern looks. Aside from the Minimates already announced, DST will produce “Gallery Diorama PVC sculptures, Premier Collection and Milestones resin statues, Legends in 3D half-scale busts”.
What combo of brand and product type are you looking forward to? (More Minimates is always good, yeah?) Join us at the Allspark Facebook Page, on the Allspark Forums, or on our Discord server and let us know!
