Toy Fair 2012: Diamond Select Toys (UPDATED)

Geek Fun

I make no secret of my love for Diamond Select Toys, so you can imagine my joy when I was able to step foot into their showroom and get an inperson look at the next Minimates, Statues, and Select figures for all of the new and popular licenses that DST will be putting out in the upcoming months (some are pending final approval).

While I do not have a list of specs and prices, these figures sure are pretty. Better photos are coming, this is a preliminary posting to get the news out there.

I am excited about the Marvel Select figures, all of the new Minimates (especially the new Walking Dead Minimates which are based off of the Image comic and not the AMC television series), and the busts for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film.

(UPDATE)
