DSTChuck has released a new Diamond Select Toys Q&A over on their Art Asylum website
for your viewing pleasure.
In this weeks edition focuses Miscellaneous questions. Check out the entire Q&A below:
I -LOVE- the X-Men First Class Movie Minimates! These were the only toys released for the movie, so I am ecstatic that we got a good assortment of characters from DST! But, we still didn’t quite get the whole team. We need at least Banshee, and possibly a couple other characters like Angel, Darwin, and Riptide. Is there any hope for these last characters to complete the movie lineup, or is the line done?
If the Minimates that are in stores right now do well, then of course we’d consider another series – assuming the retail buyers were interested as well.
Would you ever consider doing a Movie/Comic 2-pack? Thanks and keep up the good great work!
I am sorry, but it’s not possible to mix the movie and comic versions of Marvel characters into one pack.
Hi Guys, Just want to say great job, been collecting since minimate wave 7 and thanks for taking the time to answer my question(s). First of is there plans of possibly a Hope Summers or another Colossus minimate With possibly a chest piece(one that covers all of his whole body? If not thanks for the Strombreaker set. It looks spectacular! Please keep up the good work!
Neither of those are planned right now BUT were are just now starting to talk about the 2012 lines so we’ll see.
I was just wondering if you have a date when the KNIGHT RIDER Vehicles will be Available? After Mattel goofed fans over with them Announcing a Hot Wheels Version of KITT Would be Available in 2011 and then Changing their Mind and Putting the A-Team van instead(Maybe in 2012, KNIGHT RIDER’s 30th Birthday), I could Use Some Good News About it.
We’re still pretty early in the development process but I’d say LATE 2011 but more likely early/ spring 2012. We’ll have to see.
hello guys, i’m a massive and loyal fan of your marvel select range, anyway after seeing the new marvel select figures featuring the avengers i’ve got to say i’m soo impressed!!! they look amazing, anyway just wondering when we will see the likes of beast, angel, rogue, iceman and maybe a jim lee version of jean grey aka pheonix as were sorely lacking x-men characters and lets face it there’s no marvel without the x-men! also guys we need a few more avengers i.e vision, scarlet witch, quicksilver, wonderman, antman and ultron although the ultimate version wouldn’t be ideal!!!!! also regarding the spidey characters pfff….. where they to lmao. i’d love to see a cletus kassidy version of carnage as he is one of the coolest characters in any comicbook universe! would be intersting to see the new venom which is of course flash thompson a very unique take on the character which has struggled since eddie brock left the symbiote! also have u guys ever noticed no one i.e toybiz ! and hasbro knows how to make a good lizard figure! he’d be intense…… would be neat to see psylocke made as she’s super popular…. but yeah bout it off the top off my head just leaves us with movie versions of amazing spider-man and hulk (avengers) 2012 release of the amazing spiderman and the avengers movies, as we’ve had movie versions of cap, iron man, logan and thor. keep up the good work and we love the more unique characters rather than ten spidey’s lol
Lee thanks so much for your support! You are correct we do have more X-Men we can do and I think we will do more. We’ve gotten several X-Men out this year and for SURE when we plan MS figures we look to the X-Men family. The next figure we are going to announce is in fact an X-Man. Thanks for all the cool ideas.
Dear DST, Re: Disney Store Exclusives - Marvel Select As there are no Disney Stores in some countries around the world (for example, Australia), will there be a way for international fans to purchase the Disney Store Exclusive Marvel Select figures? Will they be available to local “comic book” stores or possibly online through Disney’s website?
As of right now Disney international is not buying these figures BUT that’s an ongoing dialogue that we hope will work out for the fans.
