Diamond Select Toys Announces Panels for Comic-Con International!
July 13, 2013

 

Diamond Select is coming back to Comic-Con International this year, and while we’ve already told you about the exclusives and the exhibits and all that, we haven’t told you about the panels! Check your busy schedules on Saturday and Sunday, because DST has not one, but TWO panels planned, one all about Minimates and the other all about… well, everything else!

Saturday, 7/20/13, 1:30-2:30, Room 8
Marvel Minimates: 50 Series of Awesomeness!
Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Marvel Minimates line, some of the team behind the popular mini-figure brand are here to talk about their plans for The Wolverine, Thor: The Dark World and the fan-choice Series 50! Diamond Select Toys Director Chuck Terceira and Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat will also share info about the other Minimates lines, including Tomb Raider, Aliens, The Walking Dead and Battle Beasts, as well as submit to a Q&A session and debut the next big Minimates line! Plus, there’ll be a Minimates prize drawing at the end of the panel!

Sunday, 7/21/13, 3:00-4:00, Room 7AB
Diamond Select Toys: The Best of All Worlds
The creative minds at Diamond Select Toys are known for their diverse product lines, from Select-scale 7-inch action figures to electronic vehicles to role-play items to vinyl banks. Diamond Select Toys Director Chuck Terceira and Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat will attempt to cover every non-Minimates item DST has coming up, from such brands as Marvel Select, The Walking Dead, Star Wars, Star Trek, Universal Monsters, Lost in Space, Knight Rider, Batman, The Munsters, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, The Expendables, Lenore, Domo and more! They’ll also hold a Q&A, announce some brand-new products, and there will be a prize drawing at the end of the panel!

And be sure to catch Chuck Terceira on the Action Figure Insider panel of “Old into Gold: How Retro Properties Are Big Business For Toys and Collectibles,” Friday night at 7:30 in room 26AB!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
