Brian R.: Are there anymore Cobra Kai figure coming. Or will it be Daniel, Johnny and Kreese
DSTChuck: Yes, there are more coming, series 2 is sculpted and is in with the studio and talent for approvals.
Fernando F.: Any chances to see more Mortal Kombat women figures? Like Skarlet, Mileena, Jade or maybe another Kitana with her famous Endless Summer skin?
DSTChuck: I am sorry, but our license is no longer able to include the MK video game. We can however produce products based on the recent movie, and we are looking at those looks to see what might be next.
Marlon S.: Are there any plans to reissue other figures like X-men figures since Red Hulk has been reissued?
DSTChuck: The Red Hulk is a new sculpt based on a specific newer look for the character. There are no plans at this time to do any of the X-Men figures as new figures with a new look.
Kenneth E.: Hello Diamond Select, I was wondering if we would get a Spider-Man no way home statue one day
DSTChuck: I am sorry Kenneth, we do not have any more NWH products planed at this time.
Tanya O.: The Marvel Animated statues line is my favorite Marvel series ever. Now that we have Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot and Gamora in this style, is there an Animated Drax being considered to complete the team?
DSTChuck: I think it makes sense that we finish the team.
Tim H.: Are there any plans to resurrect any of the Star Trek TOS prop replicas? I'd love to purchase them without spending hundreds for each. Thanks!
DSTChuck: I am sorry at this time, we do not have plans for any new TOS props.
Rich S.: Will Diamond be continuing with Marvel and MCU Minimates?
DSTChuck: The next box set of Marvel Comics-based Minimates is nearing readiness, and I am sure we will be doing more MCU MM in the future.
Luis R.: With the recent clear plastic mandate on toy packaging can we still count on the minimates 2 pack to have their clear window for display options?
DSTChuck: At this time, we do not have plans to change the package, but we’ll have to see what the future holds.
