NYCC 2019: Diamond Select has Premier Collection animated DC statues on the way!
I’m writing this from beautiful New York City, where I’ve just spent the past few hours sweating like a pig and moving like a steer through jam-packed aisles. Perhaps the most exciting stop so far has been the Diamond Select Toys booth. DST has a number of new items that weren’t on display at Toy Fair in February, and I love just about all of them.
If you follow Diamond Select Toys, you probably know that their DC license has had some interesting limitations. Lots of PVC statues, resin busts, and Vinimates figures—all of which are great—but no resin statues to rival the Premier and Milestone pieces that the manufacturer produces for their Marvel and Star Wars licenses.
That’s about to change!
Diamond is developing Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman animated statues in the Premier Collection, targeting Summer, Fall, and Winter 2020 releases, respectively. See for yourself:
No word on whether or not Diamond’s agreement with DC includes resin statues for any other iterations of these (or other characters), but this is incredibly exciting all by itself. Let us know what you think—and if you’ll be picking these up!
