Ask DST #445 - The Green Hornet, JCVD, X-Men, and more!


It’s a new Ask DST, and Diamond Select Toys and Gentle Giant, Ltd. president DSTChuck is here to answer your burning questions! Ever wonder if we'll sculpt more X-Men action figures or complete the Fellowship of the Rings in our Lord of the Rings line? Want to know if we have more plans for martial art heroes like Bruce Lee or Jean-Claude Van Damme? You've come to the right place! Read on to see what Chuck has to say about The Green Hornet, JCVD, X-Men, Muppets, Doctor Strange, and more!

Raffaele E.: I Just bought your Buffy figure and it’s so stunning that I keep wondering if you are planning to do other characters like Willow or Spike.

DSTChuck: I am sorry, for now we are not able to create more products from the Buffy franchise.

Tom B.: Are you going to do a deluxe action figure of The Green Hornet to go with your Kato?

DSTChuck: For now, we’re going to see how the Kato figures do; if they do well, we’d love to do some Hornet products.

Scott H.: There's a rumor that a new Stargate series is coming and hopefully you will be making more Stargate figures, can you comment?

DSTChuck: I am honestly not aware of a new series, that would be cool if it made a comeback!

Hovik S.: Is the Lord of the Rings license solely action figures? Or can you guys make busts/statues? I know you guys work with Gentle Giant Studios and their old LOTR busts are some of the best! They made a really awesome Sauron and their Legolas probably has the best likeness to Orlando Bloom in statue form, even Weta can't nail his likeness.

DSTChuck: Yes, we are able to make more than action figures and we hope to show more categories soon.

Pablo M.: Will there be more X-men Action Figure releases in the near future?

DSTChuck: We are always looking to X-Men characters for inspiration , and we do have another one in the Select line, we will be showing soon.

Lucas M.: Will there be any plans to make Sesame Street articulated figures that are similar to the muppet ones you guys made? I’ve seen quite a few people talk about it and want them to be real and I feel like they would sell really well if you guys did make them.

DSTChuck: I am sorry, there are no plans at this time for Sesame Street figures.

Karan B.: I was wondering if your company was also going to make anime figures?

DSTChuck: We have done some in the past, and certainly we would not rule them out in the future if the right opportunity presented itself.

Peter A.: Please, any plans soon on Anti-Venom items?

DSTChuck: Sorry, not at this time, but we have discussed it.

Ivan H.: Good afternoon, after the Van Damme diorama Bloodsport, will Diamond Select make other statues of Van Damme or only the Bloodsport?

DSTChuck: We would love to do more Gallery pieces if the demand is as good as we expect it will be for the first piece.

Andrew R.: Will there be a MCU Doctor Strange action figure release with the new movie?

DSTChuck: Sorry, we do not have plans for an all new Strange figure, but we will make our previous Strange figure available once again.

Ollie P.: Hello, is there any chance we will see any Dungeons and Dragons minimates in the future based on the roleplaying system and video games, etc.?

DSTChuck: We have discussed that, and I think there is a good chance you will see something in the future.
