DST TMNT Bank 23

Diamond Select Toys has the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license now, and they’ve been putting out a wide array of products. TMNT Minimates, a Pizza Cutter, Bottle Openers, and of course, Bust Banks. When we saw these back at Toy Fair 2014 I was impressed. They pull from the Nickelodeon show well, have movement in the arms and head, and are BIG. Perfect accent pieces for a Turtles display, hanging off the shelves with their weapons. You should be able to find these at Toys R Us and local comic shops now. We’ve run them through a quick gallery, along with the die-cast Michelangelo bottle opener, so check out over 25 shots after the break!

Diamond Select Toys has sent out info on their plans for New York Comic-Con 2014. They have a full schedule set up that will include events, panels, giveaways, signings and more. See below for details:

New York Comic Con kicks off October 9th, and Diamond Select Toys is ready and raring to go, with panels, signings, activities and giveaways scheduled for all four days of the convention. So if you’re going to be at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City between October 9 and 12, stop by booth #1736 to see what new products are coming up, fill in holes in your collection from our company store, and pick up some free swag! Here’s a full breakdown!

PANELS: Diamond Select Toys will host two panels at the show. The first, “Diamond Select Toys: The Best of All Worlds,” will take place on Thursday, Oct. 9, at 5:00 in Room 1A18. DST president Chuck Terceira and sculptor Eli Livingston will talk about upcoming products, give away some prizes, and announce a new toy line. Then, on Saturday, Oct. 11, at 4:15 in Room 1A24, Minimates product manager Robert Yee and designer Uriel Caton will join Chuck for “Minimates MiniFigures: From Marvel to Clerks to TMNT!” There, they will discuss upcoming Minimates releases, give away some more prizes, and unveil the next Marvel Minimates assortment!

SIGNINGS: Before and after the Minimates panel on Saturday, Minimates designer Uriel Caton will sign full-size Minimates posters for all at booth 1736, for about 45 minutes starting at 3:00 and then again at 5:15. Walk with the Minimates team to the panel at 4:00, and back to the booth at 5:00!

ACTIVITIES: Planning on stocking up on Minimates at the DST booth? Well, if you spend $18 on Minimates, you get a free ticket to use the Build-a-Minimate station, a library of Minimates parts that you can use to build whatever or whoever you want – and then take it home with you!

GIVEAWAYS: Every morning at the start of the show, DST will give out a free Ghostbusters promotional Minimate to people who come by their booth and ask for it, while supplies last. A limited number will be given out each day, Thursday through Sunday, so make the booth your first stop! Throughout the weekend, DST will also give out free full-size posters featuring their original Aliens, Ghostbusters, and Marvel Minimates artwork!
