Diamond Select Announces New York Comic Con Plans
Panels and Femme Fatales Kabuki Exclusive...
Diamond Select Toys is gearing up for New York Comic Con. Not only will DST have a show exclusive - as well as the ever-popular Build-A-Minimate station - at booth #2036 at the Javits Center, they’ll be hosting two panels full of new reveals.
For a NYCC show exclusive, DST will be offering an extremely limited variant on their 9-inch Femme Fatales PVC statue of David Mack’s Kabuki (pictured top). Only 100 pieces have been made of an unmasked Kabuki, showing off her facial scars. The individually numbered statues will be sold in a window box for $45, and will go on sale on Thursday, Oct. 10, at the start of the show.
On Saturday, October 12, at 12:15 pm in room 1A01, DST will host the first of two panels, titled Diamond Select Toys: The Best of All Worlds. This panel will attempt to cover all of DST’s non-Minimates product lines, from Select-scale 7-inch action figures to electronic vehicles to busts to role-play items to vinyl banks. Diamond Select Toys Director Chuck Terceira, Product Manager Robert Yee and Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat will talk Marvel, Batman, The Walking Dead, Star Wars, Star Trek, Universal Monsters, Godzilla, Pulp Fiction, Clerks, Lost in Space, Aliens, Sin City and more! Special guests will include sculptors Jean St. Jean and Eli Livingston! They’ll also hold a Q&A, announce some brand-new products, and there will be a prize drawing at the end of the panel.
And on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 1:30 pm, in room 1A08, DST will host their second panel, Marvel Minimates: A Toy Line Turns Ten. Wrapping up the tenth anniversary celebration of the Marvel Minimates line, Chuck, Robert and Zach will talk about Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier and their plans for the next decade! Plus, they’ll also share info about the other DST Minimates lines, including The Walking Dead, Sin City, Aliens and Battle Beasts, as well as submit to a Q&A session and show off new artwork! Special guests include artist Uriel Caton and animator Alex Kropinak! Plus, there’ll be a Minimates-themed prize drawing at the end of the panel.
