D&D Mini-Mates - SHEILA & DIANA!

Dungeons & Dragons: The Animated Series - Set 1: Heroes - Diamond Select 2023

As the releases of Diamond Select's Marvel Minimates line has slowed in recent years (due to sheer character exhaustion imo), I'm so happy to see so many other popular licenses now getting the Minimate treatment.  It started with the ThunderCats way back in 2012. But since then it's been a growing roster of classic properties like Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I.Joe, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Transformers. But my favorite of the non-Marvel properties has easily been the Dungeons & Dragons Animated Series set(s). This cartoon was an iconic, but underrated and under-merchandized staple of 80s animation. Due to the 2023 live-action D&D movie, there was a burst of popularity for the vintage show which gave us the first real action figures for these amazing characters. Between the Iron Studios statues, the Hasbro action figures, and these Minimates, I am extremely happy. Now the DST Venger statue opened the door for even more. Let's check out the D&D minimates below!


Diana's only accessory is her staff. It is made of a bright translucent yellow and it a little overly flexible and warped.

Here are my Dianas together: Mini-Mates, Iron Studios Diorama Statue, and Hasbro Cartoon Classics.


Sheila's only accessory is her cloak. In the cartoon, when she raises her hood, she becomes invisible. So this figure comes with two cloak options: raised hood in translucent purple plastic, and lowered hood in a opaque plastic.

Here are my Sheila figures all together: MiniMates, Iron Studio Statue, and D&D Classics figure.

Time for a Group Pic!

Here is the entire gang of heroes together: Eric the Cavalier, Presto the Magician, Diana the Acrobat, Hank the Ranger, Sheila the Thief, Uni the Unicorn, and Bobby the Barbarian. The Dungeon Master will come in the second box set with the villains.
