Diamond Select Toys has a nice load of stuff hitting stores this week, including NBX, Lost in Space, and some killer X-Men Minimates.
To me, my Minimates
Well you probably already know that we’re big fans of DST’s Minimates figures here at BG. And that’s not too likely to change with the assortment they’ve delivered for this week. Then again, I don’t know any X-Men fan who doesn’t love Giant Sized X-Men #1. That’s what this new wave is based on, you know.
Not that that’s all that’s on the shelves this week, as there’s a smattering of other licenses with fresh merch as well. Take Nightmare Before Christmas (NBX) for instance.
Series two of the excellent Nightmare Before Christmas Select action figures have arrived. So now you can add Doc Finkelstein, Santa Jack, and the Mayor to your collection. There’s a new wave of Minimates based on the Ghostbusters reboot as well, and bottle opener that are fashioned after both Harley Quinn and the Predator’s smart disc. That’s just plain cool.
And that Lost in Space B9 robot? That’s classic. Pretty tempting for any sci-fi fan, whether you dig the old TV show or not. There’s even more though, so scroll on down for the full list, and then get to your local shop, or hit the online storefronts.
All of the above (and below) should be available now.
- Batman The Animated Series Dark Knight Batman and Robin Resin Bust
A Diamond Select Toys release! In Gotham City, there are many stories about Batman, and in nearly every story there is a Robin. These resin busts of Batman and Robin are based on a child’s story about the dynamic duo, as seen in the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Legends of the Dark Knight.” Inspired by the classic comic book storyline, the episode showed a bigger, more brutal Batman and his new Robin, Carrie Kelly, taking on mutants in a dystopic future Gotham City. Dark Knight Batman measures over 6 inches tall, while Dark Knight Robin measures approximately 5 inches tall; both are in scale to other Batman: TAS busts, and each sits atop an art-deco pedestal inspired by Gotham City architecture. Each bust is limited to only 3,000 pieces, and comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity in a full-color box.
