Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC (DST) is proud and excited to announce the latest Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figure promotion, and this one is sure to please fans of the critically-acclaimed series as well as toy collectors. Just as Spike and his vampire henchmen did in the series, next spring fans will be gathering pieces of a blue-skinned demon in their quest to “Assemble the Judge!”
Packaged with the upcoming Oz, Drusilla and Robin Wood action figure line, each figure in this assortment will contain a piece of the ancient and powerful demon known as the Judge – allowing fans to build their own Judge action figure! The assembled Judge was sculpted by Rudy Garcia and will be in scale with past releases. In addition, each piece will be articulated, resulting in a fully functional and free action figure made with a total of six unique pieces.
“We know fans want more villains for their favorite characters to battle and this was a natural extension of our Buffy plans,” says Michael Leavey, Marketing & Sales Supervisor for DST. “For this particular demon, the build-a-figure aspect was truly appropriate – especially because characters did the same thing in the show’s second season.”
“Diamond Select is ‘spot on’ here by developing a villain-centric line to emulate the storylines from the second season. The battles, conflict and confrontation are central to the series thematic arc—and whenever product can reflect the content itself—the more appealing and authentic it is to the Buffy fan base. We are optimistic that the ‘Assemble the Judge’ series will genuinely appeal to both fans and collectors” said Michael Peikoff, Vice-President of Domestic Licensing for 20th Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising.
While further details are not yet finalized, fans and retailers can rest assured that all of the Judge pieces will be readily available upon the series’ release. For more information and to check for updates, please visit www.diamondselecttoys.com
