You have probably heard or read about my love for action figures and statues. Not a week goes by that I'm not reviewing a new product from Diamond Select Toys. In fact I did my first YouTube toy video the other day. Now one thing I get asked from time to time is why I praise Diamond Select Toys so much. Well for starters Every time someone comes into my office the say "Wow where did you get that Punisher Statue?" I reply "Diamond Select Toys" when my son has friends over they always ask "where did you get that Deadpool (statue)?" To which he replies "my dad got it from. Diamond Select Toys"
What is it I find so awesome about there stuff, well it's simple. There figures look amazing on display and they are great for your kids to play with. Here's a great example. I got my son a 50.00 Ghostrider figure with motorcycle at Target. The fire falls off the bike, the figure is small, it doesn't balance good when you set it up, and to top it off it's pretty flimsy. Now I also got him the Diamond Select Ghostrider. That thing is sturdy as all hell, it's big enough that it can battle his wrestling figures, and it comes on an awesome base of hands rising up from Hell. And guess what it was 25.00. Yup, half the price and double the quality.
I'll throw another one at you. I have the entire line of the Marvel Netflix shows PVC Statues. Daredevil, Punisher, Electra, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. The guys look so real it's scary. They adorn my desk at home. Now I know what your thinking, that set had to cost over 500.00, well it didn't these beautiful statues run a nice affordable 45.00 each, heck sometimes I see them for 30.00 each. I really and truly wonder how they can sell these things so cheap. Now I'm not complaining because I can buy more at this price, it's just mind blowing how reasonably priced these are.
If Mavel is not your thing don't worry they have DC items as well. In fact their new Justice League movie line is coming out now. I just saw Wonder Woman and Superman at my comic book store yesterday, along with the Batman statues and busts from the 1966 show that I really need to pick up before they are gone.
Is comic book stuff not your thing? It's cool they have an entire line of stuff. How amazing does it sound that they have Pulp Fiction figures? What about all the new Jagers from Pacific Rim 2? Is horror more your thing. Well they have an Alien Head letter opener and a Predator Cookie jar coming out as well.
Let's not forget about the really popular line right now in Ghostbusters. Yes Diamond Select has a line from both films as well as the Real Ghostbusters cartoon. And the cool things about these, other than the fact they look life-like is that each figure comes with a diorama piece that when complete will build a giant background. The first film builds the rooftop where the final battle took place, and the figures from Ghostbusters 2 builds the firehouse complete with the ghost sign holding up two fingers.
Let's not forget they also have lines for The Muppets, Gotham, Back To The Future and more. They also carry a complete line of Minimates.
Minimates are Lego like block style figures with 2" tall body that resembles an extremely simplified human form. You can get these everywhere they are so popular. I mean even Walgreens get exclusive ones. Lots of kids collect these and now it's becoming popular in the adult collecting world as well.
I guess to sum it up, Diamond Select Toys is a great company. They have the best designed items on the market for collectors and the best toys for kids. Check out some picks below from not only there catalog, but some of my collection as well. And yes, those opened figures and statues are indeed from my office .
