Just came across this one USA Today, some pre-toy fair news of what Minimates will be on display:
Diamond Select. Minimates are one of the more popular collectible mini-figures for comic-book fans, and Diamond Select unleashes a new set tied to the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie. (The company is also showcasing a new 7-inch resin Spidey statue designed by Gentle Giant and inspired by the film.) A new wave of MAX: Mobile Action Xtreme Minimates that are coming exclusively to Toys "R" Us will be previewed, as well as Minimates based on The Mummy and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which are part of the Universal Monsters line of figures.
