I have been a fan of Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai line for some time, but with price creep pushing single figures to the $100 range and more, I’ve curtailed my purchases somewhat. I may have to go hog wild on some of their newest reveals though. Most notably, Square Enix expanded their DC license to include Batman v Superman, revealing four figures – Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Bats in his armored suit. While I’ve been particularly disappointed by what some licensees (ahem Mattel) have produced, these are the first to really pique my interest.
While Street Fighter has seemingly gone to the wayside, they’ve continued with their mainstays. DC continues with more Arkham and variant figures. The newer Marvel variants add Black Widow and Captain America. And there’s Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid, and Halo, to name a few more.

A few weeks ago, our good friend Richard, aka ActionFiguresRule, from the MATRIX Photo Booth and AFR Studio sent me some quick pics for the Marvel Select Wolverine from Diamond Select Toys. He promised some follow-up pictures in more of a story format. And he sent them a little while back, and in all my glorious laziness I only got them posted today (sorry Richard!)
The cool thing is that he’s provided all the pictures for a great story, but left it up to you to fill in the rest. Have a great plot, or dialogue, or the whole deal? Leave it in the comments below. Have fun!
This is just a small sampling of the great pics of the upcoming Tomb Raider Minimates that DST posted on Facebook recently. Having never really played one of the many Tomb Raider games, I have no idea who the secondary characters are, but there’s a bunch of them who look like great bad guy fodder. Zombie-looking samurai are cool!
