Comic-Con International is less than a week away, and the Diamond Select Toys team is about to get on a plane to sunny San Diego! But before they left, they wanted to let you know what to look for and what to do at SDCC 2017!
The team will be set up in their usual location (booth #2607) showing off a wide variety of upcoming products, including a number of world premieres! New Minimates and PVC dioramas from Thor: Ragnarok will be there, as well as new items from the DC Animated Universe, Star Trek and Nightmare Before Christmas!
DST will also offer con-exclusive products in their store, including several Vinimates vinyl figures, Marvel Gallery PVC dioramas, DC Animated Universe resin busts and statues, and even special-edition Marvel Comics! (See here for a complete list). Plus, fans can qualify for a free gift – each purchase of $25 earns them a free DST fidget spinner, with a different style available each day!
After that, head over to the Toys”R”Us/Entertainment Earth booth, #2343, to pick up the exclusive Marvel Minimates Spider-Man Homecoming 2-Pack, with a raised-mask Spider-Man (with food accessories) and a civilian-clothes Adrian Toomes (the Vulture)! The set will also be available on the Toysrus.com website once the show starts Thursday.
If it’s information you seek, then DST will host two separate panels at the show! “Diamond Select Toys: Minimates” will celebrate 15 years of Minimates mini-figures, at 10:30 on Saturday, in Room 8. It will feature a presentation on all upcoming Minimates and Vinimates, as well as a Q&A with President Chuck Terceira, Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat and prototype painter Brian Felgar. The best questions will win DST swag!
A second panel, Diamond Select Toys: Select Figures & More,” will celebrate 15 years of the Select figure line at 3:00 on Sunday in Room 24ABC. It will cover action figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, resin busts and statues and all other DST products, and end on a Q&A with sculptor Jean St. Jean, prototype painter Jason Wires and Gentle Giant’s Adam Van Wickler. Again, the best questions will win DST prizes!
If you aren’t able to attend SDCC this year, stay tuned to DST’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for regular updates throughout the show. And if you’ll be there, travel safe, and tell them Plastic Connoisseur sent you!
