ComicsPRO meeting: Diamond, Diamond Select Toys announcements
LAS VEGAS — Some brief information from Diamond Comics’ Distributors’ Roger Fletcher and Bill Schanes from the ComicsPRO meeting in Las Vegas. Bill Schanes is Diamond’s Vice President of Purchasing; Fletcher is Diamond’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Among the announcements:
* Ultimate 1/4 Scale Figures are coming for Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
Star Wars figures shown were Obi Wan, Darth Maul and Hoth Han Solo.
The Star Wars figures will be 18 inches tall, have 20 points of articulation, and come with sound.
Fletcher said the Star Wars figures drew a strong reaction at Toy Fair, where they first exhibited them.
“The reaction that I saw from people coming by looking at these things — they were showstoppers,” he said.
A vinyl bust bank featuring Indiana Jones was also shown.
In stores now is a Star Trek Original Series Communicator, which was demonstrated for attendees. Schanes indicated interest in these items could rise as the upcoming J.J. Abrams film draws closer to release.
From WizKids, a July-scheduled expansion called “Secret Invasion” will tie into the comic-book series from Marvel. And, according to Diamond, the expansion will reveal who is in fact a Skrull.
