Dr. Strange, First Appearance Blade, Werewolf by Night and Morbius the Living Vampire will unite in Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum's Strange Tales Marvel Minimates box set
in March. Though the figures won't arrive in stores until well after Halloween, toy sites are currently offering preorder prices of about $17-20 if the spooky side of the fall season strikes fans. Longtime collectors will note that this set includes the first-ever Morbius and Werewolf by Night Minimates, with Blade getting his third figure and Doctor Strange getting his second. The First Appearance Blade is a little less brooding than the more modern Minimate versions and rocks his signature green shades as seen in 1973's The Tomb of Dracula
#10. Doctor Strange, on the other hand, seems a little more stressed out and sports a more dramatic cape than his first Minimate. You can check out a larger image of the Marvel Minimates Strange Tales box set after the jump.
