Another convention has come & gone and that means it's time for a little Armchair Coverage here at IAT! I was away this weekend, but I came home & dived in to the news, taking some notes along the way. Some lines had big news while others seemingly forgot there was a con on this weekend.
Ever since the DC Minimates from DC Direct died on the vine, I’ve been a lot more selective with my Minimates purchases. But Diamond Select Toys has its ways of pulling me back in, and there’s no better way than by making a figure from one of my favorite video games.
Since my local toy watering holes aren’t being cooperative, I’m running a bit low on domestic toys to review. But I did uncover a couple of Diamond Select figures from my to-do pile. Today’s review focuses on the retail version of their Universal Monsters’ Dracula.
Even though Halloween is past, that doesn’t mean we're down with our spooky figure reviews! I’ve got one more of Diamond Select’s Universal Monsters toys to look at. I’m ending on The Wolf Man, one of my favorite characters and a nice conclusion to the first wave of figures.
As we covered last week, Diamond Select Toys is jumping into the Universal Monsters franchise with the Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Mummy. I was excited to pick up the Mummy at my local comic book shop, but little did I realize that DST would get me to purchase two versions of his figure.
This year, along with the great Minimates sets, Diamond Select Toys is also releasing the first action figures in their Universal Monsters line. I’ve been waiting for these guys ever since they were first revealed at Toy Fair all those months ago. But was the wait truly worth it?
