It's Monday and another Ask DST is here!Gentle Giant, Ltd. & Diamond Select Toys' president DSTChuck is here to answer your burning questions, this time with an update on several popular figure lines like Green Hornet, Lord of the Rings, and Marvel! Have a question of your own? Submit it to!


Jack H.: Couple questions are you allowed to make LOTR figures based on the new cartoon coming out The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim? If you can and are interested will you be waiting for the release if it's successful before making any figures?

DSTChuck: We have not discussed that with the studio yet and they have not shown us anything yet, but for sure we are excited to see more about it.


Brian H.: I just had a general question. I collect your Marvel Gallery Statues and I was wondering if you have plans on making ones for Kate Bishop, Yelena, and Nebula? They are three of my favorites and I would like to add those to my collection.

DSTChuck: I think if we were to do Yelena and Kate, it would be timed around any new movie or show that includes them.


John L.: Any chance of a set of Green Hornet & Kato Minimates?

DSTChuck: Sorry, there are no plans at this time.


Claudia Q.: Hello! With the many Lucasfilm products currently made, is there a chance that we might see Indiana Jones products in the future? Thank you!

DSTChuck: Good question.


Gavin B.: Hi there, as a hardcore collector living in Europe (France), as you can imagine attending Celebration in the USA is a challenge but with Celebration London in full swing can us European fans hope to see DST (Gentle Giant) come to London to set up a booth there next year?

DSTChuck: At this time, yes, we are planning on attending.


Chad N.: Hi, is there any chance you will be doing a line if Ghostbusters: Afterlife figures with a buildable set piece like you did before?

DSTChuck: Sorry, at this time we do not have plans for GB Afterlife, that license is held by Hasbro.


Ricky W.: Hello Team, Love your recent minimate acquisitions, any chance of possibly seeing any of the Boys in select, statues, or minimate forms? i feel like it would be another winning license for you guys with how popular the property is becoming especially with them heading into the fourth season.

DSTChuck: I am sorry, at this time, we do not have plans for any merchandise for the Boys.


Benjamin J.: What is going on with your D.C. Universe products? You haven't sold them in over a year it seems, and I really wanted to complete my Zack Snyder Justice League collection with a black suit Superman that you had planned for the DC Gallery. Will you ever sell DC products again? They were my favorites I I have so many, and the quality was only getting better. Please! Need a superman!

DSTChuck: The DC lines are on hold at this time, but we hope to be able to get back to them sometime.


Andrew G.: Are you going to make any more Westworld action figures since season 4 is coming? Are you going to make more figures of Ed Harris as man in black in other different clothes?

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


Filberto P.: Are you planning to do more What If Marvel Gallery? Infinity Ultron and Doctor Strange Supreme would be a GREAT choice too!!

DSTChuck: We have discussed more What If…? Gallery Dioramas, so time will tell.


Nick W.: Are there plans to make more Star Wars Animated Maquettes from the original series (like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and others)? It seems like it has been a while since one was released.

DSTChuck: Gentle Giant, Ltd. did those a long time ago, before we were involved, so there are none planned at this time, but never say never.
