Welcome to Action Figure Insider’s 9th Anniversary “Scoop Week!” As has been the case for the past eight years, on the week of our anniversary of AFi’s launch, we have a little something we like to call “Scoop Week” where we bring you a variety of exclusive news on all your favorite action figure, collectibles and toy lines. We reached out far and wide to a variety of companies that have been incredibly generous to give us scoops and exclusive news. We had so many responses that several day we will have multiple scoops so make sure you are checking back each day!
For our first reveal of DAY 2, we turn to our friends over at Diamond Select Toys. This is also a two-fer of sorts, in that we get to show off one new item and debut another.
First up is a set of Minimates featuring the classic King of the Monsters and some of his pals… and bitter blood enemies. We first saw this set at Toy Fair in February, but this is the first time we are getting to see DST’s official press photography of the set and solicitation write-up:
Godzilla Classic Minimates Series 1 Box Set
A Diamond Select Toys Release! What’s the best way to stop a towering atomic monster? Put him in your pocket! Celebrating 60 years of Godzilla movies, this box set of classically-styled Minimates includes Godzilla and three of his most famous friends and foes: Mothra, Gigan and Titanosaurus! Each Minimate mini-figure stands approximately 2 inches tall and features a variety of interchangeable parts. Packaged on a blister card. Designed by Art Asylum!
4-Pack SRP: $19.99
And now the reveal! As a kaiju you don’t get much better than Godzilla… unless you build a giant robot replica of Godzilla and then you get MechaGodzilla!! Diamond Select Toys are keeping the classic Godzilla fans very happy with product based on those monsters we grew up watching. DST’s line of vinyl bust banks have been very popular across all of the licenses that they have applied the format and I’m sure Mechagodzilla will be another big win for them that will put some more coins in their piggy banks!
Godzilla Classic Mechagodzilla Vinyl Bust Bank
A Diamond Select Release! Godzilla’s greatest foe is launching his attack! A cybernetic copy of Godzilla with superior firepower, this vinyl bust bank of Mechagodzilla is based on how the robotic kaiju appeared in 1974’s Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. Standing 8 inches tall, the bank features a coin slot in his back, as well as an access door in the base. Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
Bank SRP: $22.99
Thanks to Zach and the Diamond Select Toys crew for letting us reveal!
We’ll have one more reveal on the site later today and more tomorrow!
