Dawn: Executioner is the Next Femme Fatales Statue from DST!
July 2012 - The next 9-inch Femme Fatales PVC statue to hit stores from Diamond Select Toys is none other than the First Lady of Femme Fatales -- Dawn, created by Joseph Michael Linsner! Inspired by the cover to Cry for Dawn #8, this crimson-armored version of Dawn is titled Dawn: Executioner, and skilled sculptor Steve Kiwus has adapted the look and pose from that cover into three dimensions. Below, you can see the early control art Linsner drew up for DST, Kiwus' final rendering, and the final piece. And check out the exclusive variant version! Made especially for Hastings stores (and http://gohastings.com), this exclusive purple-and-black variant of Dawn -- color scheme designed by Linsner himself -- will hit stores at around the same time as the regular edition. Look for Dawn: Executioner to hit comic shops and online toy stores on August 1!
June 4, 2012 - It's almost that time of year again... the time of year when Diamond Select Toys hops on a plane across the country to attend the biggest pop-culture convention in America! San Diego's Comic-Con International 2012 will run from July 12-15, and DST will have a ton of fun events for you to attend, including a Minimates panel, a Battle Beasts signing, our Build-a-Minimate station and some cool, cool giveaways. But this year will also be a huge year for DST's exclusive toys! In partnership with Diamond Comics Distributors and the Previews catalog, DST will have the following exclusive items available for sale at their booth this year, and there's something for everyone!
AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men Marvel Minimates Box Set
The Star of Alice: Madness Returns is DST's Newest Femme Fatale
May 11, 2012 - American McGee's Alice has torn her way through Wonderland twice now, and I think we can all agree that the thing that stands out the most is the way she slices her way through Card Guards with her trusty Vorpal Blade. She gives a new meaning to the phrase "cutting the deck," and her determination and knack for causing mayhem made her a must-do for Diamond Select Toys' Femme Fatales line of statues.
April 2012 - It's Wednesday, which means hordes of comic book fans are flocking to their local comic shops to pick up the latest releases. For those of you hoping to pick up the latest issue of Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose (the deluxe and signed editions of #73 arrive today), you may also want to swing by the toy department, because the newest Femme Fatales statue from Diamond Select Toys is also shipping to stores! Raven Hex, the stern sorcery-slinging sister of Tarot, stands 9 inches tall and is cast in PVC plastic, which puts her price far below that of most resin statues. Our original statue of Tarot is sold out, and we expect her sister to move just as fast! Pick one up and take her home today -- those comic stores get cold at night.
March 2012 - The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) runs from April 13-15 this year, and once again Diamond Select Toys (DST) will be in attendance! And since it's also the 10th anniversary of Minimates, they've got some great events planned!
First off, Saturday afternoon will bring a special 10th anniversary Minimates panel, focusing on the coming year. From Marvel's Avengers to the Walking Dead to Battle Beasts, Diamond Select Toys representatives will share info about DST's upcoming lines, debut the next stop-motion animated Pirate Raiders movie and give away cool prizes!
