The Fantastic Four has been trending for the last day or so, thanks to movie rumors, but Diamond Select Toys has something a little more definite to offer fans: a pair of products due for release in Fall 2022 featuring Marvel's first family, including a 20th anniversary relaunch of the company's Marvel Minimates line and a 1/2-scale bust of a certain ever-lovin', blue-eyed idol o' millions. They have provided ComicBook with an exclusive first look at the new, FF-branded line, which includes DST's first-ever Minimates 6-pack, featuring all four core members of the FF, plus Doctor Doom (in his "Infamous Iron Man" attire) and Silver Surfer Black.
The Thing's bust comes on a platform emblazoned with the "4" that represents the FF's logo, so one hopes that if that one's popular enough, there might be a chance to get Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, and the Human Torch as well. Starting with Ben has never been a bad call, in terms of trying to sell the team. And as a bonus, that aforementioned "6-pack" is actually kind of a 7-pack, because one of the Minimates "accessories" that comes with it is a tiny H.E.R.B.I.E.
Pre-orders open Friday, 1/21 at your local comic shop or online retailer, including diamondselecttoys.com
