Dark Horse Comics has announced a partnership with Hong Kong based Toy2R to release a new range of 5" vinyl figures featuring Mike Mignola's Hellboy. Announced at the International Toy Fair, the figures will be produced in Toy2R's popular Mini-Qee format and they're adorable.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be involved in this program,” Dark Horse Product Development head David Scroggy said. “We have worked with Toy2R for many years, and to see their fun take on Hellboy is a thrill. These vinyl figures will be in very tight edition quantities, so we expect a quick sellout of most of the variants.”
Hellboy's look had to be altered slightly to fit in with the Mini-Qee design. Fortunately, any changes were personally approved by Mignola so there's no need to freak out.
Dark Horse Comics is the exclusive North American distributor of the Hellboy Mini-Qee line so if you want to get your hands on one of these bad boys, you're going to have to order it from the publisher. Dark Horse will also handle the sales to specialty markets in Europe and other territories while Toy2R will be the exclusive sales entity for Asia.
The Hellboy Mini-Qee line is scheduled for release in July 2013 and comes in three different types as seen in the below pictures. Each retail for $19.99.
What do you think of the new Hellboy Mini-Qee toys? Which one is your favorite? Is it weird that I like shirtless Hellboy the best?
