ACTIVITIES: Planning on stocking up on Minimates at the DST booth? Well, if you spend $18 on Minimates, you get a free ticket to use the Build-a-Minimate station, a library of Minimates parts that you can use to build whatever or whoever you want – and then take it home with you!

GIVEAWAYS: Every morning at the start of the show, DST will give out a free Ghostbusters promotional Minimate to people who come by their booth and ask for it, while supplies last. A limited number will be given out each day, Thursday through Sunday, so make the booth your first stop! Throughout the weekend, DST will also give out free full-size posters featuring their original Aliens, Ghostbusters, and Marvel Minimates artwork! Times will be chosen at random, and once put out they tend to go fast, so check back regularly!

    The Build-A-Minimates thing makes me sad that I’m not anywhere near the area and won’t be able to attend.
