D’Hoffryn, the mentor to Anya/Anyaka, was featured in various episodes from Season Three through Seven. The Patron of Vengeance Demons, D’Hoffryn was sculpted by Pablo Viggiano. Also sculpted by Pablo Viggiano – Kulak, from the Season Three episode “Homecoming”. Both the Kulak Bust and D’Hoffryn Bust are limited to 1,500 pieces.

Also limited to 1,500 pieces is the Fyarl Demon Giles Bust, sculpted by Martin Canale of The Gore Group. Giles was turned into this mucus-spitting demon by his archenemy Ethan Rayne in the Season Four episode “A New Man”.

Forming the fifth point on the pentagram is the Gentlemen Bust, sculpted by Jeremy Bush and limited to 3,000 pieces. The Gentlemen were a quartet of demonic villains featured in the Emmy-nominated Season Four Episode “Hush”.

Hellboy Puts On His Fancy Duds For Tower

EXCLUSIVE HELLBOY MOVIE BEANIE AVAILABLE ONLY FROM TOWER RECORDS


TIMONIUM, MD (February 3, 2004) – Diamond Select Toys and Tower Records are all set to dress-up the collections of Hellboy fans everywhere this March with the release of the Tower Records exclusive Black T-shirt Hellboy Beanie!

Direct from the Hellboy motion picture, set to release everywhere on April 2, 2004, this exclusive beanie shows Hellboy in his “off-duty” outfit, witch means his long jacket is gone, revealing his sleeveless black t-shirt. Making such tough, hard looking characters into soft and cute beanie versions was an unnatural yet interesting evolution. “Hellboy is an interesting character with a very cool look”, says Andy Livingston, Marketing & Sales Coordinator for DST, “and turning him into a beanie only serves to enhance his appearance. We’re very happy to be working with Tower Records to get this neat collectible into the hands of Hellboy fans.” This version of the Hellboy beanie shows off the intricate designs the character has on his right arm, as well as revealing more of his stone fist.

The exclusive Black T-shirt Hellboy beanie will be available at Tower Records stores and at www.towerrecords.com this March. In addition to their exclusive Hellboy beanie, Tower will also be carrying the regular Hellboy Movie Beanie assortment. The regular assortment consists of Hellboy with his signature trench coat, his B.P.R.D. partner Abe Sapien and Sammael, one of the villains from the upcoming Hellboy film.

The Slayer May Be Gone, But Her Friends Aren’t

BRAND-NEW ACTION FIGURES BASED ON CHARACTERS FROM BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER AVAILABLE IN MARCH, FROM DIAMOND SELECT TOYS


TIMONIUM, MD (February 3, 2004) – Diamond Select Toys and Moore Action Collectibles (MAC) are putting the Slayer’s favorite Wicca into fan’s hands this March. MAC had previously announced the Buffy action figure line was ending, but then founder and lead sculptor Clayburn Moore approached DST about re-launching the line. “It’s rare that an opportunity like this, a great product that’s a perfect fit, falls into your lap – we were all eager to start working on Buffy” said Andy Livingston, Marketing & Sales Coordinator for DST. The result of this powerhouse union will be seen with the release of six different Willow figures.

“Willow is the anchor of the line. The character’s popularity, her importance to the story, and her crossover presence between BTVS and Angel has led to the strongest demand for this character in the action figure line”, stated Clayburn Moore. Season 5 Willow and Transformation Willow will be available at Tower Records, Musicland locations as well as comic book and specialty shops. Transformation Willow is a chase figure, Doppelgangland Willow is a Previews/Toyfare exclusive, available through a special offer in ToyFare Magazine or for purchase through comic book and specialty stores. Vampire Willow is only available through the offer in ToyFare Magazine. Dark Witch Willow is another exclusive, this time through Cinequest.com. Finally, White Witch Willow, as seen in the series finale, was an exclusive offered through the Moore Action Collector’s Club.


Diamond Select Toys will continue to produce action figures from the fan-favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show throughout 2004. Both figures previously sculpted by MAC, as well as some totally new ones. In addition to single figures, special boxed sets will be produced, celebrating characters or moments from Buffy’s seven-year run. The first of these boxsets is the Willow’s Spellbook, which is exclusive to Time and Space Toys and Musicland stores. Limited to 3,000 pieces, this set includes special versions of the Vampire, Dark Witch and White Witch Willow figures.
