Diamond Select and Hasbro Team Up For A New LIne of Collectibles

Diamond Select and Hasbro are both giants in the toy and collectibles industry. Both produce pop culture iconic products that could cover the world twice over. These two titans have now joined forces for a new line of collectibles featuring Transformers, G.I. Joe, Power Rangers, classic animated Dungeons & Dragons, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and Jem and the Holograms.

Products will include both retro-styled collectibles as well as items based on the newest iterations of the characters. It is DST’s first time working on Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, two fantasy brands that continue to capture the imagination of fans worldwide.

“Hasbro is the home of wildly popular brands with deep, rich histories that have spawned some of the most iconic heroes and villains in pop culture, it’s a real thrill to be able to work with these characters – some of them for the first time – and present them to fans as unique, dynamic collectibles.”

Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira

The new range will span multiple categories of collectibles, including Gallery Diorama PVC sculptures, Premier Collection and Milestones resin statues, Legends in 3D half-scale busts and Minimates mini-figures. The first products will launch in Fall 2021 at comic shops, specialty stores and drug stores worldwide.

At an early age I knew I loved two things more than anything else Comic Books and Video Games and no matter how hard my parents tried they couldn't keep me away from the capes and pixels. Now that I have a wife and child of my own I can't wait to share these vast worlds and experiences with them and hopefully you! With GWW I created and become editor of the comics section, which has now become the websites most popular area and features daily post with unique Comic editorials, reviews and previews. Along with Will Elizondo we started the GWW Capes Crew podcast. A weekly show dedicated to to all things Comics, Superheros and Sequential Art. After a year of creating content for GWW I was made its Editor in Chief. I love everything I do and can't think of a better way to spend my time than to spread every form of geekery to every corner of the globe. Comics will all be my passion though and were my heart lies.
