Diamond Select Toys was one of the booths we weren't able to cover at Toy Fair, but Zach over at DST filled us in on some stuff and even provided some photos. My favorite of the lot had to be the new Marvel bottle openers. Who wouldn't want to open a bottle with Ghost Rider's blazing skull or the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet?
On display were:
- Marvel bottle openers (Infinity Gauntlet, Deadpool, Venom, Ghost Rider's skull, Galactus's Head, and the Punisher's Skull logo). Apparently Captain America's Shield, Silver Surfer's Board, and Thor's Hammer bottle openers are already available at specialty retailers.
Some news without photographs includes a Marvel Select Wolverine (based on the character's appearance in The Wolverine), a Marvel Select Iron Patriot (Iron Man 3), and a prototype for a Back to the Future Mr. Fusion prop replica with sounds and smoke. The new Aliens and Lost in Space Minimates also lack approved photos.
In other news, DST is bringing back the Ghostbusters Minimates line and upsizing their Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man vinyl bank so it's two feet tall. I believe that might put it in scale with the Minimates line.
