Diamond Select Toys has announced the next wave of Marvel Minimates will feature characters from Marvel’s Civil War.

Civil War Captain America – Sporting a battle-damaged look, Steve Rogers returns (briefly) for this Minimate version of Captain America complete with removable mask, gloves and even a shackle accessory to recreate his shocking assassination.

Civil War Iron Man – The first Iron Man Minimate to feature his upgraded Extremis armor, this version also includes additional body parts and armor to create your own “un-armored” Tony Stark!

Civil War Spider-Man – While it may not have lasted for long (not counting those new-fangled Scarlet Spiders), Spider-Man’s latest look is captured in two-inch scale for the first time, along with a removable mask and alternate Peter Parker mode!

Civil War Nitro – The mutant that started it all, now you can bring home the villainous Nitro to reenact all your favorite Civil War moments. Just try to keep the explosions to a minimum, okay?

These are New York Comic Con EXCLUSIVES, so best get your tickets for the show, that runs from April 18-20 in NYC.

    Hope you’re not a completist, Josh. You know there’s probably going to be about 500 Secret Invasion Minibuggers coming out: Skrullified Heroes & villains, New costumes, battle damage, about 15 new Iron Man Armors, and 30 Spider-Man and Wolverine variants. And probably 400 of them will be con exclusives.

    Luckily, I’m not a completist. I got into the Mini-Mate game late.

    But this set just sounds really cool.

    Because, really, everyone should be able to re-enact Captain America 25.

    Oh, pish tosh…you could re-enact Cap# 25 with one Ken doll, one Barbie doll, a 12-inch Destro, and some ketchup.

    Is there a Mephisto figure to make you forget Peter’s face when you unmask him?
