Apparently, New York Comic-con is the theme of today’s posts! Diamond Select Toys will be at the show (booth #2036) and they’ll be offering a limited variant on their 9-inch Femme Fatales PVC statue of David Mack’s Kabuki. Only 100 pieces have been made of an unmasked Kabuki statue, showcasing Kabuki’s facial scars. The individually numbered statues will be sold in a window box for $45, and will go on sale on Thursday, Oct. 10, at the start of the show. DST will also be selling three different bags of Minimates stands for $4 each, and don’t forget that if you purchase $20 worth of Minimates in our company store, you get to build your own Minimate at the Build-A-Minimate station.
DST will also be hosting a few panels which include:
