A Whole Lotta Spike Coming From DST
Diamond Select: Jay Cochran - 2004.08.27
DIAMOND SELECT TOYS, TIME AND SPACE TOYS TO VAMP FANS WITH EXCLUSIVE ANGEL SPIKE FIGURE

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC and online retailer Time and Space Toys are offering collectors an exclusive action figure based on one of the most popular characters from the hit TV shows Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the Angel: “Beneath You” Spike Action Figure.

“Fans have been wanting brighter additions to their Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figure collections," said Time and Space Toys President Kevin Kriess. "We are happy to meet this demand with the blue shirt-clad, soul fully restored Spike as seen in the Season 7 Buffy episode, ‘Beneath You.’”

Designed by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (who also produced the figures) and Gentle Giant Studios (who also sculpted the figures), and offered exclusively by Time and Space Toys, the figure depicts the vampire anti-hero (portrayed by actor James Marsters) as he appeared in the episode “Beneath You,” and comes with a blue shirt, a Zippo® lighter, a cross with an altar, a rat, a stake, and a shovel. Standing approximately 6” tall, this figure – which comes with 16 points of articulation – is targeted for a late January release.

“Our Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer collectible releases have proven to be enormously popular with toy collectors,” said Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles Director Chuck Terceira. “With this exclusive figure depicting Spike from one of his most memorable appearances, it’s no wonder that consumers are looking forward to adding this much-anticipated figure to their collections.”

DIAMOND SELECT TOYS, AFX OFFER FANS EXCLUSIVE ANGEL SPIKE FIGURE

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC (DST) and Action Figure Xpress (AFX) are offering collectors an exclusive action figure based on one of the most popular characters from the hit TV shows Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the Angel: “Just Rewards” Spike Action Figure.

“We are ecstatic to be a part of Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles’ all-new Angel action figure line,” said AFX President Pat Wang. “The Willow action figures sold very well for us, so it only made sense for us to continue the success through this exclusive Spike figure from DST.”

Designed by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (who also produced the figures) and Gentle Giant Studios (who also sculpted the figures), and offered exclusively by AFX, the figure depicts the vampire anti-hero (portrayed by actor James Marsters) as he appeared in the fifth season episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Featuring Spike in his menacing vampire form, the action figure – which is scheduled to be released in late January – stands approximately 6” tall and features 16 points of articulation. The figure also comes with a battle axe, a cross with an altar, a stake, a jacket, a bag of blood, and a railroad spike.

“Besides the fact that Fox’s Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer continue to enjoy great success with their best-selling DVD releases,” said Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles Marketing and Sales Coordinator Scott Braden, “the character of Spike, in his own right, has garnered a sizable fan base. And with this exclusive figure presenting Spike in one of his most classic vampire poses – from an episode that depicted him at his fiercest – it’s no wonder that fans are clamoring to get their hands on this must-have action figure!”


DIAMOND SELECT TOYS, CINEQUEST.COM TO RELEASE EXCLUSIVE ANGEL: “GRAVE” SPIKE FIGURE

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC (DST) and CineQuest.com are joining forces to produce an exclusive collectible based on one of the most popular characters from the hit TV shows, Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with the Angel: “Grave” Spike Action Figure.

“Whether he was on Angel or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spike has proven to be one of the fans’ favorite characters,” said CineQuest.com President Mark Del Vecchio. “Depicting a the battered and beloved character as he appeared in the sixth season episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ‘Grave,’ this figure is sure to be just as popular – if not more so – as our exclusive Hell’s Bells Anya and Dark Witch Willow figures from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, both of which were huge hits!”

Designed by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (who also produced the figures) and Gentle Giant Studios (who also sculpted the figures), and offered exclusively by CineQuest.com, the figure depicts the vampire anti-hero (portrayed by actor James Marsters) shirtless, and comes with blanket, a cross with an altar, poetry book, and a stake. Standing approximately 6” tall, this figure – which comes with 11 points of articulation – is targeted for a late January release.

“Collectors have been waiting with bated breath for this action figure,” said Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles Marketing and Sales Coordinator Scott Braden. “There’s no doubt that this figure is certain to become a can’t-miss addition to Angel and Buffy fans’ collections.”


DIAMOND SELECT TOYS, TOYFARE TO SCARE UP EXCLUSIVE ANGEL SPIKE FIGURE

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC is teaming up with Wizard Entertainment’s ToyFare: The Toy Magazine to create an exclusive action figure based on one of the
most popular characters from the hit TV shows Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the Angel: “Fool for Love” Spike Action Figure.

“We are very excited by our Spike figure from Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles,” said Wizard Entertainment Product Manager Gabriel Fieramosco. “I saw the prototype recently and can’t wait to get one myself. After the huge success we had with Vampire Willow, I am sure fans are going to love this one.”

Designed by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (who also produced the figure) and Gentle Giant Studios (who also sculpted the figure), and offered exclusively via the
pages of ToyFare and Wizard Entertainment’s online shopping destination – www.wizarduniverse.com – the figure depicts the vampire anti-hero (portrayed by actor James Marsters) with his punk rock look from the fifth season episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Standing approximately 6” tall, this figure – which is scheduled
to be released in late January – comes with 11 points of articulation; as well as a metal pipe, a Zippo® lighter, a cross with an altar, a round bottle, and a square bottle.

“Fans have been very anxious to get their hands on this action figure, which is based on the much-lauded episode that, among other things, revealed how Spike won his trademark leather jacket by killing the slayer, Nikki, in the 1970s,” said Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles Marketing and Sales Coordinator Scott Braden. “With this all-new figure release from Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles and ToyFare, we’re going to grant them their wish!”
