Here’s a round up of some of the small displays from the Diamond Comics Previews booth at New York comic-Con 2017. Includes the following companies:
- Medicom – DC Movies MAFEX
- McFarlane Toys
- DC Collectibles
- SD Toys
Here are some general booth pics of the Diamond Previews display from San Diego comic-Con 2016. Most of the stuff here had no company or product markers. We wound up skipping most of it as it was mainly items you could already buy. Here are a few photos of the display though. This housed the main McFarlane Toys display, which was items we had already seen. They had a few other items spread throughout the con that we didn’t chase down. Companies included here:
We received a press release from SD Toys for their newest Pixel Figures. These 3″ stylized figures are based on the cult classic film, The Warriors. They are available in two different sets of four figures, or individually. Here’s the info:
WARRIORS, COME OUT TO PLAY!
The Warriors are back… in the most cutest and possible way! Behold, the new PIXEL collection based on the 1979’s classic feature film about the gangs in New York in the late ’70s.
The story centres on The Warriors, a New York City gang, who must return to their home turf in Coney Island after they are framed for the murder of a respected gang leader. Their struggle to get back home through avoiding enemies and their encounters with various gangs including The Orphans, Punks and the infamous Baseball Furies made this film an instant cult movie.
SDToys “Pixel collection” transforms popular TV and movie characters into blocky 8-bit looking figures. It’s a fun, retro approach to toy collectibles, the line debuted with two waves of Big Bang Theory figures last year, soon expanding to include such other popular pop culture references such as Mazinger-Z and now, The Warriors. Each Pixel figure measures 3-inches tall is constructed of a nice and hard, hollow plastic. As their name implies, the Pixel characters all have a blocky, 8-bit video game appearance to them. The cartoony caricatures really work well with the design and the use of color is simple and bold. ¡What’s really great about these figures is the many ways you can display them!
The Warriors line based on the most recognizable characters from the movie come in various formats.
- Two sets of 4 figures: Set A includes Ajax, Swan, Cochise and Snow. Set B includes a Mercy, Baseball Furies Leader, Orphans & Punk.
- Also: every figure can be bought separately!
Sets of 4 figures at 35$ each
Individual figures at 10$ each
The Warriors PIXEL line from SDToys will be available for pre-order in the states (and the whole world) thorugh July’s PREVIEWS catalogue. Diamond is the distributor of SDToys products in the United States.
