Batman’s most trustest lieutenants get immortalized in vinyl, in a Minimate style!

If you’re familiar with Vinimates by now, they look like the iconic Diamond Select Minimates, but they are 4″ inches tall, made of vinyl, and more of a statue than a minifigure. But still cool none the less!

The Nightwing and Batgirl Vinimates were originally a Free Comic Book Day exclusive, but being so popular, Diamond Select is still selling them. The 2 of them just look amazing!

Batgirl is wearing her current “Batgirl of Burnside” costume. The costume is a combination of her iconic one, mixed with the Batman ’66 TV, and a little bit of hipster thrown in for good measure. She’s posed ready for action. Like a mentioned before, she does look like a Minimate, and the high amount of detail Diamond Select gives the Minimates is amplified here. From her cape, to her utility belt, to the laces on her belt. Spectacular.

Nightwing is based on his iconic pre-New 52 look. Let’s face it when you have something iconic that works, don’t mess with it! He’s also posed ready for battle, especially with his two escrima sticks. It’s the sculpt in his hair that really pulls this figure together.

The paint jobs on them is really amazing. They seriously just pop. Love them!

Personally, I have these two posed back to back. Fighting side by side. Watching out for each other. But you can display them any way you want to. Together or apart.

These are my first two Vinimates. I have no clue why I didn’t pull the trigger on them before, but now I’m not only a fan, but a customer. I can not wait to see what other Vinimates Diamond Select will put out!

You can find DC Vinimates Nightwing and Batgirl Vinyl Figure 2-Pack at your local comic shop or buy them directly from Diamond Select!
