E.V.A.: Diamond Select Toys at Toy Fair

Diamond Select Toys always has the most amazing products. The American International Toy Fair allowed us to get a look at some of the coolest toys and collectibles that DST is putting out. Pictures don’t do justice to the detail on some of these figures and statues. The head sculpt of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye is just amazing!


Aside from the superhero releases Diamond Select has some great classic monsters coming out including Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Phantom of the Opera and the mutant from This Island Earth. Diamond also is releasing figures from the Rankin/Bass stop motion classic Mad Monster Party. If you only know the Christmas stuff that Rankin/Bass did, do yourself a favor and check Mad Monster Party out. The line from Diamond looks just like the figures in the movie including a great Boris Karloff sculpt.

One thing that I am looking forward to is the line of figures and Minimates based on the Sly Stallone hit, The Expendables! Diamond is doing an 8 inch line similar to the Mego figures of the past with but with superior sculpting and articulation. Once you see the photos below you will want these as much as I do!
