Toy Fair 2013 is going on right now in New York City (even with all the snow), and we’ve learned that Diamond Select Toys has announced two new licensed lines at the show.

Lost in Space: The classic 1960s TV show, which updated “The Swiss Family Robinson” for the space age, will receive Minimates and an electronic replica of the B-9 robot.

Aliens: The 1986 science-fiction classic that drove the Alien franchise to new heights will receive Minimates and Minimate vehicles, as well as electronic vehicles of the Colonial Marines’ military transports.

If both of these are in Minimate form, there could be some really interesting mash-ups that occur with the other Minimate line.  I can’t wait to see Robot and Ultron Minimates battle it out.  Also, Aliens… how bad as is that going to be?
