    I've never gotten into Minimates before. Aside from the occasional Lego kit, I really don't collect toys outside of Transformers. But after seeing the new DC Minimates, I knew that I had to at least get the Blue Beetle/Booster Gold pack. The problem is, I have no idea where to find them. Minimates aren't really prevalent around here, Target and Toys R Us have them, but all they have is the Marvel ones. So, short of going online for them, where the heck do I go to find these things?

    I have both waves.

    They're distributed through Diamond, so eBay or Comic stores are your best bet my hard rocking amigo.

    I would be quick about it, they are literally selling like proverbial hot cakes.

    Yep -- just got my Wave 2s today (had 'em reserved at the shop). They only had a few left, I think, and no full sets.

    Beetle & Booster -- GLEE!
