August’s edition of Previews magazine brings on seven brand new preorders from Diamond Select’s upcoming catalog. Get ready for more Star Trek, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, Marvel and (oh yes) Knight Rider.
DST has maybe the most impressive stable of licenses I’ve ever seen. And it’s not limited to the big guys either as the Marvel Comics and The Walking Dead’s of the world are joined by niche stuff like Knight Rider. And that’s something that, as a big fan of the classic TV show in all its Hasslehoffy glory, I’m pretty happy about.
Seriously, how many companies have made cool Knight Rider stuff in the last… uh, whenever? Exactly. I mean, aside from that neat KITT and Michael Knight set from way back when, DST is the only company keeping the talking car genre in the public eye- and doing a darn good job of it too.
And now it occurs to me that I might be going on a little too much about the exploits of pre-sandwich (and pre-swim trunks for that matter) Dave, so without further delay here’s the newest and the coolest up for preorder from DST:
