May 28, 2013

The summer is officially here, and Diamond Select Toys is kicking things off with two new releases on New Toy Day! This Wednesday, comic shops and specialty stores across North America will get the two latest masterpieces from DST: the newest Femme Fatales PVC statue, and the most detailed Star Trek ship ever! Check out the pics!

Femme Fatales Kabuki PVC Statue
The killer statue line just got deathly quiet! From the acclaimed comic book series by writer-artist David Mack, the newest 9-inch PVC statue in DST’s Femme Fatales line is the silent killer Kabuki! The agent of the Noh is captured wielding her deadly kasurigama, atop a lantern base with her name on it. Sculpted by Jean St. Jean, the statue comes packaged in a window box, with a suggested retail price of $45.

Star Trek Enterprise Project Cutaway Ship
Ever look at the iconic silhouette of the U.S.S. Enterprise and wonder what’s inside? Wonder no more with the latest Enterprise ship from Diamond Select! Created by the team behind Dragon Models’ Project Cutaway line, this plastic, fully painted model of the original U.S.S. Enterprise features transparent pieces that reveal the detailed machinery and living quarters within. Ship measures 18 inches long and comes with a metal display base. Suggested price is $174.99.

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.
