New York Comic-Con is approaching, and Diamond Select Toys is prepping a massive presence at the show, with cases of advance prototypes, shelves of products for sale, a panel, two signings and an exclusive! Read on for details, and come see us at booth 1644!

Starting Thursday, Oct. 4, DST will offer an exclusive Minimate of the Battle Beast Desmodius, a fearsome black bat armed with a sword and glaive. Measuring approximately 2 inches tall, and featuring 14 points of articulation, it is fully interchangeable with all Minimates mini-figures. It will come packaged in a clear polybag with hangtag, and sell for $6.

DSTís panel and signings will happen on Saturday, Oct. 6, and feature designers Nelson X. Asencio (Marvel Gallery, Milestones, Premier) and Caesar (Marvel Gallery, DC Gallery), and sculptors Eli Livingston (Alien, Predator, Cthulhu) and Jean St. Jean (Classic Batman, Marvel Select, Premier). DST President Chuck Terceira will also be on hand for the panel from 12:00-1:00 in Room 1C03.

Following the panel, the designer signing will run from 1:30 to 2:30, and the sculptor signing will happen from 2:30 to 3:30, both at booth 1644. There will be free postcards on hand for them to sign, but fans are welcome to bring their own items, as well as purchase items in the DST store.

See you in New York!

Ive yet to really go beyond picking up their Star Trek figure offerings... Which, to me, are the best in the business. Even after seeing the more recent MacFarlane versions of Kirk and Picard. As well as their Ghostbusters figures, which are absolutely fantastic, in my opinion. (I cannot wait for those Real Ghostbusters figures!) And yet, all the whileI do find myself looking at their Marvel Select line on occasion. But, Im not thrilled that they dont scale well with Marvel Legends, from what Ive seen. So, Im still kind on the fence, there.

I wish diamond select would put out more Gotham figures

Oh yeah I always refer to them in my head as one in the same. Don't know why.

First one I'm getting is the Mafex Iron Spider. Just saw recently that is has a Tom Holland head sculpt. It'll definitely replace the Marvel Legends I have ?

We were talking a Tamshii Nations Figuarts.

Medicom Mafex construction and quality control is not up to Bandai Japan's standard.

I'd still recommend Mafex Homecoming Spider-Man.

Tamashii has some excellent MCU releases if you're looking for six inch.

I'm saying that Hot Toys is more of a priority brand for me right above Marvel Legends. I do plan on collecting Mafex MCU and DCEU figures.I just started collecting a year ago so didn't have a lot of time to expand my collection anyway.

Hot Toys doesn't let me collect anything. I could fit in Mafex if I want DCcharacters sometimes.

So you're moving to collect exclusively Hot Toys ?
