  1. DST broke the news today of the mystery video game license Zach has been hinting at: Sonic The Hedgehog! http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/2018/02/sonic-merchandise-speeding-to-stores-from-diamond-select-toys/ "The first products will be on display at the International Toy Fair in New York City, with a focus on the core Sonic characters — the speedy hedgehog Sonic, the energetic Amy, Tails the two-tailed flying fox, Knuckles the powerful Echidna, Shadow the anti-hero hedgehog, Metal Sonic the evil robot hedgehog, and the mustachioed mastermind Dr. Eggman. Product categories include Gallery PVC dioramas, Minimates block figures, Vinimates vinyl figures and PVC mini-figures with collect-and-connect racetracks." Between this and Kingdom Hearts, DST is really trying to hit my top gaming franchises.

    Is it really Toys R Us wave 26 if it's at Walgreens? Holographic Iron Man and Madame Masque!

    Kingdom Hearts

    I think a big problem with the Space Paranoids figures is that in series 1 Tron and Donald are a matte finish, but in series 2 Goofy has a metallic paint job and Sark is almost semi-gloss. They're still nice figures, I feel the line has been too lenient on Tron. @DSTZach, any update on series 3? There were prototypes at Toy Fair, but they were mostly designs shown off before the first series came out. Any chance we might be seeing figures for KH3 like the Select stuff and that bust coming out?

    It's time we go back to the future with the Time Machine Showdown!
  5. http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/2017/07/diamond-select-signs-license-for-pacific-rim-uprising/ "Diamond Select Toys (DST) will offer a wide range of Pacific Rim Uprising products starting in 2018, including Select action figures, Minimates mini-figures, Vinimates vinyl figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, vinyl coin banks, replicas with lights and sound, and housewares. The movie will premiere in U.S. theaters on February 23, 2018, and DST plans to have the first products ship in time for the premiere" I'm curious to see what DST will put out. I thought the first movie was a lot of fun and had some really neat Jaegers and Kaiju designs, so I'm hoping to see the same for the second movie.

    DST's new license, they must have announced it at the panel? http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/2018/10/bruce-lees-legacy-lives-on-with-new-products-from-diamond-select-toys/ I remember Zach saying there was an older license that was coming back. Guess this is the one

    NYCC 2018

    I'm a little disappointed, KH series 3 and Sonic series 2 seem to consist of figures that were designed when they were first protoyping the lines at shows. I'm hoping the panel has something new, as I'm getting pretty fatigued with each wave just being variants of the same characters.

    Let's get to the heart of today's review: Kingdom Hearts Vinimates series 2!

    Infinity War

    After months of searching for new Minimates, it finally happened. IW wave 2 spotted in Southwest MO

    Mega Construx Heroes Single packs

    I've got a few of them: He-Man, Skeletor, Picard, and a couple of the Halo guys. Nice little figures for what they are, and the removable armor on the Halo ones are really cool. From what I remember, I think the sets with the mixed licenses are exclusive to Wal-Mart? My store only had wave 1 for the longest time, then skipped to wave 3 just recently, but was mostly picked clean when I found them.

    Kingdom Hearts

    I'm going to need at least...13 of Mickey so I can have an entire Organization XIII. Does Sora come with just the standard Kingdom Key, or will he have some new blades? Can't wait to hear about series 3 as well. 💗

    Sonic The Hedgehog

    Seeing development stuff like this is always neat. Hope these look great in-hand too 👍

    Toys R Us closing all 800+ US stores

    My store said today was the last day for them. Cleared them out of the last 10 packs or so of Minimates, mostly Dark Tower. Heard a few older women talking about how they could scoop up some of the stuff still available and sell them for a profit online. The inventory was a shell of its old self, only the rack where you'd find impulse buys was half-full. The rest of the store was blockaded in caution tape, employees taking down the shelving units to get shipped off or sold. Only recognized a few of the faces there, most of the regular staff's been replaced with temporary workers by now. That Toys R Us was the hot spot for a few good years. Whether I was on the hunt for a new set, or I was down and just needed a pick-me-up, my Toys R Us was always there for a weekly visit. Thanks foR the memories, I'll miss you.

    "A scattered dream that's like a far-off memory. A far-off memory that's like a scattered dream..." It's Kingdom Hearts series 1's Sora and Donald!

    Kingdom Hearts

    DST did a really good job translating the KH2 version of the Light Cycle. Does he truly not come with any accessories? At least having a neon-colored Kingdom Key would go a long way, since any Keyblade equipped while in that world changes color to match the aesthetic. Sora looks good, though. Still blown away that the first wave really drops in a week. I've been dying to have these in my hands for a year now. Any update on if the TRU set found a home?
