THOR: RAGNAROK Minimates Release Movie-Style Hela, Bruce Banner, and More Figures (Exclusive)

The three action figures that Hasbro has so far revealed as part its Thor: Ragnarok wave are all comics-based; toys based on the specific movie designs have yet to really be seen… until now. If you want to be the first to own short-haired gladiator Thor, or a movie-styled Hela, you’re going to have to think small. As a matter of fact, you’re gonna have to think mini, mate.

Thanks to our friends at Diamond Select Toys, we’re pleased to premiere the first look at Thor: Ragnarok Minimates, featuring Bruce Banner, Thor, Hela, and Loki. While they’re not technically considered likenesses of the actors, the Minimates artists have a way of effectively conveying an impression of the relevant stars using only line drawings on a curved surface. It’s some kind of Viking magic, we assume. Or Slytherin magic, considering they’re all noseless like Voldemort.

Still, Tom Hiddleston sans nasal passages remains a handsome devil. Meanwhile, we have to ask (rhetorically), do they call Cate Blanchett‘s character Hela because she’s got hella spikes on her headpiece? (That’s a joke. The first reader to say “Well, actually, she’s a Norse mythological figure…” gets whatever the opposite of a gold star is.)

 

Obviously we are all hoping a Jeff Goldblum in funky facepaint comes next, or even Thor’s roommate Darryl, despite the fact that he’s apparently not in the movie as was once rumored. But the beauty of Minimates is that they’re cheap and easy to make, so there’s very little doubt that Diamond will provide more. And given the modular format, you can even rip them limb from limb in combat (which the Marvel movies would never allow) and mix and match parts. Ever wanted Mark Ruffalo to have longer, flowing locks? Give Loki’s hair to Banner.
