I absolutely need to have these! They should be available in June. The 16 different minifgs will be individually bagged in blind bags so you won’t know what you are getting (unless you are like me and can feel what the hair/hats feel like through the bags. In any case I am going to need several of most of these so if you see them when you are out and about please pick a bunch of them up for me okay? You know I am good for payment, right?

Silence of the Lambs MinimatesDiamond Select Toys has announced that they will be making a boxed set of minimates based on the film Silence of the Lambs.

Come Closer, Clarice…

To enter the mind of a killer she must challenge the mind of a madman.  Next in our continuing line of Movie Minimates releases comes this Minimates set based on the thrilling 1991 Academy Award-winning Best Picture “The Silence of the Lambs”! Prepare to explore the darker side of humanity with this Minimates box set featuring Clarice Starling, the twisted Dr Lecter, Buffalo Bill and the ingenious Hannibal the Cannibal!

All four Minimates feature all-new Art Asylum sculpts and accessories, including Hannibal’s removable straight jacket, Buffalo Bill’s signature Death’s Head Moth and Hannibal the Cannibal’s trademark mask and gurney!

So all us Jodie Foster fans out there will finally get those Jodie Foster Action figures [sort of] we have always wanted.

Who knows if the film Nim’s Island is a big hit maybe will get something other than just a 2 inch Clarice Minimate to playwith.

I got a small enevelope in the mail containing the very elusive Elf Spock Minimate.

This particular minimate is not available any where [except maybe evilBay] as they were a holiday giveaway from Diamond Select Toys to their retailers and folks they do business with.

Once I heard about him I had to have me one! Not that I am a completist when it comes to my collection [I still need a YE Yar to complete my Playmates Star Trek Collection], but I have been trying to get just about everything and well I just love the minimates since they are so small and cute.

You can check out the Spock Elf at StarTrekToysOnline.com. Heck you can even join and rate him if you so desire.

I just love getting free stuff in the mail. I had signed up for the Diamond Select Toys newsletter quite a while ago and haven’t bought from them in about a year, but this morning I got a little package in the mail from them.

It contained two single minimates. One was from their The Hunt 2007 [it is a dud in black tee, shorts and black chucks…like mine] and the other was a Battlestar Galactica cylon from the new series, which will fit in just nicely with my mini BSG collection. He can hang out with the other cylons from a different era.

Thanks DST for the free goodies. They also sent along a coupon code for a future order too. I’ll have to see if they have something in stock that I want to save 10% on and that I don’t already have.
