Captain Jean-Luc Picard is the Next Star Trek Select Figure from DST
May 2013 - Star Trek Select Kirk and Spock are on their way to U.S. shores, and fans are already looking beyond them to see who will follow in their footsteps. Well, Diamond Select Toys has unveiled the next Select, and it's the captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise D and E, Jean-Luc Picard! Wearing his classic TV outfit, Picard has been captured in the middle of a previously unseen engagement with the Borg, firing his phaser aboard a Borg ship, with a fallen foe at his feet. The figure will feature limited articulation and a detailed likeness by Patrick Piggott (prototype shown), and will come in shelf-ready Select display packaging. Look for him to beam down this fall, and join Captain Kirk and Spock in the Select hall of fame! Pre-order him today at your favorite online retailer or your local comic shop!

Utinni! Exclusive Star Wars Jawa Bank Offered at C2E2 This Weekend!
April 2013 - Think you've gotten all of the surprising Star Wars news you can handle this year? Well brace yourself for more! Diamond Select Toys will offer an exclusive variant of their vinyl Jawa bank at C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, this weekend! That's right, only 250 have been made, and they're all in Chicago right now!
The variants which costs $22, depicts the 1/4 scale Jawa holding an ion blaster, instead of the regular edition's restraining bolt caller.

Only 250 of this vinyl bank were made, so get to C2E2 ASAP, or find someone who's already there to pick one up for you!
