Kingdom Hearts 3 Goes Better with Toys from @CollectDST !
January 24, 2019

On the eve of the launch of Kingdom Hearts III, the long-awaited video game sequel, DST has a plethora of new Kingdom Hearts products in the works based on the entire franchise! From action figures to vinyl figures to resin busts, there’s something for every kind of collector hitting stores between now and this summer!

In comic shops and specialty stores now, the second series of Kingdom Hearts Select action figures features the world of Space Paranoids, pairing Sora with Sark, Goofy with Tron, and Organization 13 Mickey with an Assassin Heartless! Look for Sora, Goofy and an exclusive Timeless Pete at Walgreens, and Sora, Tron with an exclusive Soldier Heartless, and an exclusive unhooded Mickey with Assassin at GameStop.

 

Also at GameStop, four exclusive Kingdom Hearts Gallery PVC Dioramas are now available, spotlighting Sora, Goofy, Pete and Mickey with Donald. Ranging from 6 to 9 inches tall, each sculpture is made of high-quality plastic, and features high-quality paint details. They can also be ordered on GameStop.com.

In comic shops and specialty stores, the Kingdom Hearts 3 Vinimates vinyl figures are based on the game’s new Toy Story looks. Featuring Sora, Donald and Goofy, each 4-inch block-styled figure has an articulated neck for additional posing options.

Kingdom Hearts Minimates have captured the game’s main characters in 2-inch mini-figure format for two series so far, including characters from Space Paranoids – Tron, Sark, and SP versions of Donald and Goofy. The spring will deliver the light cycle from Space Paranoids, packaged with an exclusive figure of Space Paranoids Sora!

Coming this spring, the first Kingdom Hearts III Select action figures will be Sora in his new look and the sorceress Maleficent! Packaged in a 2-pack, each 7-inch scale figure features up to 16 points of articulation, and includes an accessory – Sora with his Shooting Star Keyblade, and Maleficent with her staff and raven Diablo. Sora’s compatriots Goofy and Donald will also get a re-release in their own two-pack, with shield and scepter accessories, respectively.

Also in the spring, The Legends in 3D line of half-scale resin busts brings to life Sora as he appears in the new game! Measuring approximately 10 inches tall, Sora is limited to only 1,000 pieces, and comes packaged in a hand-numbered, full-color box with a certificate of authenticity. It was designed by Joe Allard, sculpted by Varner Studios!

Then in the summer, Kingdom Hearts Minimates Series 3 visits the worlds of Kingdom Hearts 3! Three two-packs make up the assortment, featuring Toy Story Sora with Wreck it Ralph, Pirates of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow with Pirate Donald, and Mickey Mouse with Maleficent! Each 2-inch mini-figure features fully interchangeable parts and accessories.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
