In 2019, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of Alien by unleashing the Xenomorph into our Mini Epics mix. We lost a few Executive Officers in the process. Luckily, our heroine has arrived to get the situation back under control.
The Nostromo’s initial resident is now joined by:
Mini Epics creative director Mauro Santini invited his skilled partner, Jorgelina Yeme, to share digital sculpting duties. This Argentina-born duo is affectionately known as the Mum and Dad of Mini Epics! Jorgelina’s talent produced badass female figures like Ripley. And she’s only just getting started…
Ripley joins our rapidly expanding Mini Epics family. Collect them all!

SDCC Reveal: Mini Epics with Jorgelina and Mauro
A MINI EPIC BEGINNING…
In 2017, under the bright lights of San Diego Comic-Con, Mini Epics were born! Much smaller than swords and shields – and a great deal more chatty.
Super-stylised and ultra-expressive, this new cast of characters was created by Weta Workshop’s collectibles team, a dedicated crew of artists, technicians, craftspeople, and producers, all relishing the chance to distil oodles of personality into a small EPIC package.
The results speak for themselves. That knowing sparkle in those eyes – you didn’t think it got there by accident, do you? Tilt your head a little to the left and you might just catch a wink.
Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities.
Ready. Set. Collect!
