Inquiries relating to Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Tron, The Black Hole, Lord of the Rings and more are offered up, and DSTChuck does his best to respond! Read on to see if your question was answered, then submit one in Ask DST!
Are there plans to continue the Star Wars 1/7 animated busts beyond Thrawn, Ahsoka and Darth Maul? If so, any hints to which character (please more Rebels!)?
DSTChuck: We are hard at work on more pieces right now. YES, the line will include Clone Wars AND Rebels. The sales of this new line have been off to a good start.
What plans are there for Marvel Select action figures for X-men ?
DSTChuck: X-Men is always a group we consider, but we did a good run of X-Men not too long ago, so we’re concentrating on other groups at this moment.
Do you plan on still offering more Batman the animated series busts ? There are still characters like Nightwing, Scarface, Harvey Bullock to do. Plus characters from the Justice League like The Huntress, Black Canary.
DSTChuck: I am sorry, right now the BTAS bust line is on hold
Will there ever be re-releases of some of your Jumbo Star Wars line figures like the first 12? Any other Boba Fetts in the works?
DSTChuck: I do not think we would release the exact same figures in the exact same format.
Please please tell us about any plans for Tron. A lot of us are really excited about the coming boxset in arcade packaging, but is there even the slightest possibility for new characters? Yori, ram, clu? Also, what about Legacy, do you have the license for that too? Keep up the awesome work guys!
DSTChuck: We are discussing right now what more we might want to do with Tron and The Black Hole.
I would like to know if more Buffy figures from the Gallery collection are planned. I already pre-order the Buffy and the Angel ones, and I hope there will be more from other characters.
DSTChuck: If the Buffy and Angel sell well, we’d love to keep rolling!
Just wondered if Diamond Select will ever be doing any Universal Monsters products again, like the Black and White Frankenstein Bust Banks?
DSTChuck: We are not working on any Universal Monsters at this time, sorry.
Can we expect to see WandaVision Minimates anytime? Thanks!
DSTChuck: Sorry, we do not have any Minimates planned at this time.
Are you guys ever going to do more Star Wars Old Republic statues I need a Satele Shan to go with your Malgus the quality is amazing!
DSTChuck: Sorry, we do not have any planned at this time, but never say never.
Hello. Would you please consider making a figure/ statue Kylo Ren without the helmet please? I know everyone gears the collectible toy market to cater to men, but I can assure you that female fans would prefer at least one figure/statue of Kylo/ Ben in relation to how Rey sees him.
Recently Funko released a Ben Solo pop with the blue saber and it was an absolute frenzy of female fans online to secure one before they sold out.
As an avid toy collector, I wish there was a greater variety of toys that didn’t always cater to the male gaze.
Thank you for listening and considering my request.
DSTChuck: That sounds like a good idea, we’ll see what we can do!
Will you continue DC TV Gallery statues based on new Lois & Superman show? And maybe New Batwoman as well?
DSTChuck: We do not have plans at this time for either.
Are you guys going to continue Castlevania gallery statues?
DSTChuck: We are not planning any more at this time.
I love the Diamond Gallery PVC line and how it incorporates so many different properties! Any chance for a 1966 Batman Julie Newmar or Eartha Kitt to show up there?
DSTChuck: Right now, we do not have any more in the works for the Batman movies or TV.
Why did you remove the double jointed elbows from the LOTR figures? Are we getting the entire Fellowship of the Ring? Thanks
DSTChuck: Sometimes we have to make changes to the figures in order to meet the budget requirements. And we plan to keep going with the line as long as sales are strong!
