Get ye to the DST booth! Diamond Select Toys will be giving away three free Minimates posters (see all three in the gallery) at booth #2607 during SDCC. Once you've been lured in by the promise of a free poster (or three), stay to check out DST's offerings for the coming year.

Are posters not your thing? DST will also be hosting its usual two panels, both with Q&As and giveaways at the end. The Minimates panel takes place on Saturday, July 26, from 1:30-2:30 in Room 8. DST President Chuck Terceira, artist Jason Wires, and marketing guru Zach Oat will be on hand to discuss what's coming up for the popular 2-inch mini-figure line. Will there be a second Godzilla Minimates box set? The answer might be at the panel.

For everybody else, DST's "The Best of All Worlds" panel is on Sunday, July 27, from 3:00-4:00, in Room 7AB. The panel will discuss all of the non-Minimates offerings, including the Marvel Select line, statues, busts, and so forth, in addition to apparently announcing a new toy line.

Be there or be square-bodied with a roundish head that may be flat on the top.

Bluntman & Chronic Minimates to light up SDCC photo
Bluntman & Chronic Minimates to light up SDCC
by Scarecroodle

Bluntman and Chronic, the superheroic creations of director Kevin Smith, will be receiving a Toys "R" Us-exclusive Minimates 2-pack which will be sold exclusively at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343). If that sounds confusing, you might consider taking a few hits.

The figures feature new facial expressions and paint schemes that reflect the costumes worn in the Bluntman and Chronic comic book mini-series (previously featured in several of Kevin Smith's films). The pack will apparently be sold through the Entertainment Earth booth (where you can pick it up for US$10) because Toys "R" Us, who has the exclusivity, doesn't have its own booth at the show.
