Castlevania TV Series to Receive Collectibles from Diamond Select Toys

Recommended Posts

For 22 years, the world of Castlevania has enthralled video game enthusiasts with its adventure-oriented take on the Dracula mythos. Then, in 2017, an animated series based on that world debuted on Netflix, receiving an overwhelmingly positive reception from old and new fans alike. With a second season bowing on October 26, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, is honored to have been selected as the master toy licensee for the series, with multiple collectible lines planned.

Beginning in 2019, DST will offer products in a number of different categories, including Select action figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, Vinimates vinyl figures, Minimates mini-figures, resin statues and more. Products will be offered at multiple major retail chains, as well as through independent comic book shops via Diamond Comic Distributors.

“The Castlevania franchise has a rich, deep history, and the new animated series takes all of it to a new, vibrant, visually superb level,” said Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira. “I’m personally a fan of the show, and I can’t wait to help execute some of its amazing character designs in 3-D.”

Based on the game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, the Netflix series follows Trevor Belmont as he and other vampire hunters defend the nation of Wallachia from the demonic forces of a vengeful Count Dracula. he Castlevania. It was written by Warren Ellis, writer of a number of acclaimed comic books, including Transmetropolitan, Planetary, The Authority, Global Frequency, Astonishing X-Men and Red, as well as the video games Dead Space, Cold Winter and Hostile Waters. Animation for the anime-influenced series is by Powerhouse Animation Studios.

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, is a mid-sized company dedicated to creating pop-culture items for collectors of all ages. In operation since 1999, “DST” sells to major US chains, as well as independent retailers worldwide through its sister company Diamond Comic Distributors. Its product output is diverse, spanning over a dozen different collectible categories and price points; that and its broad licensing spectrum have earned the company its motto, “The Best of All Worlds.” Licensors include Disney, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Sony, Electronic Arts, Lionsgate, Legendary and more.

Awesome news, loved the games and have enjoyed the Netflix series. Just wish they had given us more than 4 episodes. Look forward to see what DST can do.

Im pretty excited about this, hopefully we get some classic looks too not just exclusive to the show. NECA did some a while ago but I was never able to grab some. Hopefully these will have some articulation as well.

Yes! Could not be more excited! The animation is awesome and we will get some Castlevania Selects now!  Most of my collection is made of Marvel Selects and other 7 inc scale figures. I hope that Jean St Jean is the guy to sculpt them. He has always done a great job on the horrer from and also makes the best MS figures.

I would have liked it better that Neca did this line rather than DTS, but still I look forward to see how these figures turn out, the first season was really good, short but really good (hopefuly season 2 is just as good if not better), in any case I really like the Animation and character designs of this show, hopefully we'll see some prototypes soon.
