Diamond Select at Toy Fair 2018 – Everything for everyone

by Sean P. Aune | February 21, 2018

Diamond Select is back for another year and it has enough products coming that it would be difficult for you to not find something that suits your interests.

The Pacific Rim Uprising toy line continues with series 2 and 3 of the Jaegers on the way. Additionally, there will be a Kaiju released with eight points of articulation and a suggested retail price of $45. It will be in scale to the Jaegers so wars will be easy to reenact.

There will also be some adorable chibi style figures released as blind boxes.

Diamond Select is well-known for its comic property figures and the movies and television shows that stem from them. The Batman ’66 busts will continue as well as the usual statues. New this year, however, will be the addition of Gallery statues from the comics with Harley Quinn being the first up. She will retail for $45.

There will also be additional Marvel Minimates with a build a figure of Agent Daisy Johnson.

The big hit this year will probably be the Cable, Deadpool, and Domino statues that can fit together to make one diorama. It’s an impressive set that will look just as good if they are displayed on their own.

The Ghostbusters from the films are wrapping up, so what is a company to do? Move on to the animated The Real Ghostbusters, of course. Slimer will also be included with various hats.

Sonic will be getting Minimates along with Kingdom Hearts which will also receive action figures.

Sonic the Hedgehog will be speeding onto the scene as Minimates and vinyls.

All-in-all it looks to be a full year for Diamond Select with some items still yet to be announced, so keep your eyes peeled through out the year for even more products.
