Toy and collectible-maker Diamond Select Toys has an impressive array of sci-fi and comics book-themed stuff in stores this week.
From Minimates, to more entries in their series of bottle openers (the ’66 Batmobile!), to gelatin moulds, there’s a little something to make everybody happy in this week’s assortment.
As usual, all this cool stuff should be in your local comics shop or specialty store right now, and you can probably find most of it online as well. Personal picks- the Captain Kirk bank/bust, the Batman ’66 and Aliens bottle openers, and the TMNT pizza cutter. That one’s just too cool.
The full list is below.
