Diamond Select Announces Lost in Space & Aliens Licenses
Diamond Select Announces Lost in Space & Aliens Licenses as they send out a little bit of what to expect from them at Toy Fair 2013. Check out the full release from Zach at DST below:
This weekend, Toy Fair International begins at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Not open to the public, the event allows toy manufacturers to present their new offerings to buyers from retail stores around the world, and it always offers fans the first look at the hottest toys of the year. Well, this year Diamond Select Toys will once again be in attendance, and once again they will have plenty on display to dazzle fans!
On display at booth 4905 will be new items from DST’s broad array of licenses: Marvel Comics, Marvel Studios, The Walking Dead, Star Wars, Star Trek, Universal Monsters, The Munsters, Knight Rider, Ghostbusters, Pathfinder, Tomb Raider and Invincible. Products will include highly detailed 7-inch action figures, 2-inch Minimates mini-figures, Femme Fatales PVC statues, Granix art plaques, vehicles, light-up statues, banks, prop replicas, bottle openers, kitchenware, neon signs and more.
DST will also announce two new licenses at the show:
Lost in Space: The classic 1960s TV show, which updated “The Swiss Family Robinson” for the space age, will receive Minimates and an electronic replica of the B-9 robot.
Aliens: The 1986 science-fiction classic that drove the Alien franchise to new heights will receive Minimates and Minimate vehicles, as well as electronic vehicles of the Colonial Marines’ military transports.
More new licenses will be revealed throughout the year, so keep your ears open for more news from DST!
Now if you don’t quite know what Lost in Space or Aliens is then, well, your just lost. I could sit here and try to explain both of them to you or I could just let you read the Wiki pages for both of them.

If you are a Minimates fan, you better be balancing your checkbook now because I have a feeling this is just the start of an expensive year for you.
