Ask DST # 440 - Star Wars, Indiana Jones, X-Men, & More!


It’s a new Ask DST, and this week Diamond Select Toys' and Gentle Giant Ltd.'s president, DSTChuck, is answering your questions about a whole bunch of topics! Addressed in this installment: Star Wars, X-Men, The Rings of Power and more. Read on for his answers, then submit your own questions at!

Guiseppe V.: Please can you guys make the animated series X-Men mini bust into full figure statues?

DSTChuck: We are still hard at work on the bust line, it’s done very well for us. I am sure at some point we will discuss other formats.

Brian B.: Any plans to make a Black Krrsantan or Fennec Shand mini busts?

DSTChuck: I think both are VERY possible.

Arinjoy M.: Any chance of getting the Indiana Jones license? Your sculpts and accessories are usually great and will suit something like Dr. Jones and Mola Ram, etc.

DSTChuck: We have discussed that with Lucas, and we’re hopeful that we will be able to do something together.

Steve L.: For 2022 will we see any other MCU marvel select figures besides the No way home Spider-Man?

DSTChuck: We have not set our full list of Marvel Select releases yet for 2022 so we’ll see.

Martin H.: Will you be selling the BLUE version of Flynn from the TRON deluxe arcade set on his own on a blister card?

DSTChuck: There are no plans for that at this time.

Markarit: With the lord of the rings, the rings of power releasing this year on amazon do you guys have any interest in making figures for the show? Or will you wait and see how well the first season is viewed before deciding if you want to make those figures?

DSTChuck: I do think we are interested, as you say it might be better to wait and see.

Adam: Is there any chance that we could see some more characters from The Crow franchise? Either other Crow characters or some of the bad guys from the first movie like Funboy, Top Dollar, or Tintin?

DSTChuck: We have had some discussions internally about how popular they would be, and we would have to confirm that our license would allow them, so never say never.

Marshall S.: Are you discontinuing Lost in Space B9 Robot?

DSTChuck: We are not at this time; we have already made several production runs and it continues to sell well.

Brian M.: Is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C ever going to see the light of day?

DSTChuck: We certainly hope so, we have spent a great deal of time and money. As we have relayed in the past, we’ve hit a couple roadblocks and work continues to clear those up.

Chris S.: In regards to The Muppets, is there any other Muppet items in the works besides possible additions to the action figure line?

DSTChuck: Right now I would say the focus is on the AF, we have discussed the Gallery line, and I do think if we did try another category, it would be Gallery, before more L3D. However, that has not been decided.
