Next week (man, so soon!) New York Comic Con kicks off and Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant will once again be there with panels, exclusives, giveaways, and more!
On the final day of the show in room 406.3 you can hear what they have coming up straight from their mouths (well the mouths of artists Jean St. Jean (sculptor), Nelson X. Asencio (designer), Chris Dahlberg (sculptor) and Paul Harding (sculptor), along with Diamond Select Toys’ Zach and Chuck). The panel will take place at 1:45pm…and all panel attendees have a chance to win prizes there.
In terms of exclusives that you can find at their booth (#2945), they are bringing a few including AEW Vinimates Holiday Bash Sting Vinyl Figure, GI Joe Minimates Ninja Force VHS Box Set, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Minimates DVD Box Set, Star Wars Grand Admiral Thrawn 12” Jumbo Figure, and my personal favorite for this show… Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett Premier Collection 1/7 Scale Statue.
And anyone who purchases a Star Wars item at their booth will get an exclusive Mandalorian pin (unless you’re a member of the Gentle Giant LTD. premier guild and then you just need to ask for one). In addition if you go to their booth you can get an All Elite Wrestling promotional Minimate (while supplies last of course).
More information is below including all the details on contests they are running and pictures of all the exclusives you can find this year at their booth!
