Upcoming Diamond pre-orders include Lord of the Rings, AEW, and plenty of Marvel

A full spread of licenses are on tap for both DST and Gentle Giant’s latest round of pre-orders, set to open up next month.

They have a cave troll

November is coming up fast, and once again Diamond has unleashed a full set of pre-orders for stuff that’ll be heading to stores down the line. As goes this latest collection, that future-time will be spring of 2024, so you’ve got a while to go before any of this stuff lands.

You might not want to wait though, as the new announcements are pretty wicked. There’s a little something for almost any collector too, with products ranging from a statue of AEW’s Sting, to an awesome Marvel Select figure of the X-Man called Archangel, and a very interesting Lord of the Rings Gallery diorama.

If you don’t know, DST has two lines that feature the LotR branding. There’s the figure series, and a Gallery line of statues/dioramas. While they don’t get all that much press, both are pretty nice, hitting all of the main points in terms of character selection and the figures serving up solid articulation and accessories. But you might be asking what they’ve got to do with one another, other than the license.

Well, as it so happens, DST is bringing the Lord of the Rings action figure and diorama series’ together for this latest offering. The piece in question is a Cave Troll diorama, and it’s scaled to the figures. So in other words, it’ll serve as what would be a massive action figure, and also be a great centerpiece for a Lord of the Rings shelf, or in a larger diorama. It also makes you wonder what else Diamond might be thinking up for down the line, if this does well with fans.

Scroll down to have a look at him in all his cavernous glory, along with everything else that’ll be on the way in quarter two-ish of next year,
