September 29, 2015

It’s almost October, and while many people’s thoughts have turned to dressing up for Halloween, some cosplayers have been aiming for a much closer date. On October 8th, New York Comic-Con kicks off at the Javits Center in New York City, and Diamond Select Toys will be there with their brand-new booth full of prototypes to show off! Plus, exclusive toys, panel presentations, free posters, signings and more!

 

First up, Diamond Select Toys will have two exclusive products for sale at booth 1644. One is a limited-edition Batman: The Animated Series resin bust, of Harley Quinn as she appeared in the episode “Almost Got ‘Im”. Painted in black-and-white, this bust is limited to 1,500 pieces, costs $60, and comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity.

On Thursday evening, at 6:45 in room 1A05, DST will host the panel “Minimates Mini-Figures: Where Gotham Meets The Walking Dead.” The panel will feature a slide presentation, a Q&A with the Minimates planning and design team, and a prize drawing. On Sunday, at 3:45 in room 1A18, the creators behind many of DST’s other lines will convene for a second panel, “Gotham, Ghostbusters and Marvel Select: The World of Diamond Select Toys.” The panel will feature a completely different slide presentation focusing on action figures, vehicles and banks, followed by a Q&A and a prize drawing.

 

Diamond Select Toys will also be giving away a free promotional Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimate every morning of the show. A limited number of translucent red Raphael figures will be given out each day starting at 10:00 AM, or when the doors open, until the day’s allotment has been given out.

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.
