Diamond Select Toys have announced their plans for NYCC including a pair of exclusives, a pair of panels and a ton of promotional Minimates and posters.
The exclusives for this years show include a limited-edition Batman: The Animated Series resin bust, of Harley Quinn as she appeared in the episode “Almost Got ‘Im”. Painted in black-and-white, this bust is limited to 1,500 pieces, costs $60, and comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity. The second is a Nightmare Before Christmas Minimates Deluxe Box Set, of Lock, Shock, Barrel and Battle-Damaged Jack Skellington, with the Bathtub! Limited to 3,000 pieces, it will sell for $30. Both will be available at booth #1644. A limited number will make their debut at NYCC for $30, and the rest will be available through comic shops and online retailers at a future date.
On Thursday evening, at 6:45 in room 1A05, DST will host the panel “Minimates Mini-Figures: Where Gotham Meets The Walking Dead.” The panel will feature a slide presentation, a Q&A with the Minimates planning and design team, and a prize drawing. On Sunday, at 3:45 in room 1A18, the creators behind many of DST’s other lines will convene for a second panel, “Gotham, Ghostbusters and Marvel Select: The World of Diamond Select Toys.” The panel will feature a completely different slide presentation focusing on action figures, vehicles and banks, followed by a Q&A and a prize drawing.
And, of course, your first stop of the morning should be the Diamond Select Toys booth as they will be giving away a free promotional Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimate every morning of the show. A limited number of translucent red Raphael figures will be given out while supplies last. Additionally, three full-size posters will be given out throughout the weekend at the DST booth, featuring Minimates-style artwork of Jay and Silent Bob, Back to the Future, and Pulp Fiction! Poster artist and Minimate designer Uriel Caton will be on hand Saturday afternoon from 1:00-2:00 and 3:00-4:00 to sign posters for attendees.
