After Holiday lull? Not in comic shops as DST has a load of awesome stuff in stores today for you to blow that gifted cash on.
The Incredible Hulk, zombies, Street Fighter x Tekken, Captain America, and Alice really don’t have all that much to do with each other. Well, not other than the fact that there’s a bunch of new offerings in comic stores today from Diamond that pertain to all of the above.
If you’re a Minimate fan, you’ve got a lot to like today as new series’ of The Walking Dead and Street Fighter x Tekken mini-figs are on the pegs today. Marvel fanboy? Check out the massive Barbarian Hulk (large scale Marvel Select figures don’t disappoint too often folks) or Captain America’s shield-turned-bottle-opener (that’s… unique).
And if you’re not into any of that stuff, then you might be interested in one very cool looking PVC statue of Alice herself modeled after her appearance in the Alice: Madness Returns video game.
Vorpal Blades and good stuff all around-
