Wikus van der Merwe is not prepared for prawn life. His alien eye spies a chance at a cure and he’s going to take it. No matter how many rounds must be fired at his old comrades in arms.
Ready. Set. Collect. The Mini Epics ménage just got bigger!
An instant science fiction classic, Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 was one of the most successful movies of 2009. The guns, the aliens, the vehicles, the graphics – the world of District 9 was designed and developed here at Weta Workshop.
Which is why we’ve taken the liberty to reincarnate your favourite non-humans (and human-hybrids – we don’t discriminate) in MINI EPIC form!
District 9 characters in the Mini Epics mix:
Our team at Weta Workshop have dreamed about creating a line of vinyl collectibles for a very long time and so it is terrific to be able to reveal our MINI EPICS to you all at San Diego Comic-Con!
Please note: Images are of a pre-production prototype. Final product may vary.
OUR MINI EPICS
With an explosion of excited fans and a generous serving of subversive humour, Weta Workshop unveiled its first foray into the world of pop culture vinyls at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. The response to our merry band of Middle-earthlings – Frodo Baggins, Gollum, Gimli, Moria Orc and Uruk-hai Berserker – was immediate: WE WANT MORE MINI EPICS!
Which got us here at the Workshop thinking. What other EPIC worlds could we deliver to film fans and collectors of cool stuff across the globe?
Let’s start with the basics, we said. We’re tackling the A-team: Apes, Aliens, and Angels! We’ve grown the MINI EPICS family to include not only more figures from The Lord of the Rings, but your favourite characters from Planet of the Apes, District 9, and Alita: Battle Angel – each figure as highly stylised as the next.
Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities. And we’re only just getting started…
