  1. "Crikey, those are aces! I love those minis, mate!" - In an effort to sell more of their products in the land down under, Diamond Select Toys has decided to rename their 'Minimates' line as 'Minis', in an effort to avoid the repetition of 'mate'. They will now be called 'Minis', mate. The Minimates are 2" block-styled mini action figures, originally created by Art Asylum in 2002 and now released by Diamond Select, covering tons of fan-favorite licenses. "Yeah, those are fair dinkum nice figures, mate" said the Australian representant for Diamond Select Toys. "I'm really keen on the relaunch of those figures under the new name, 'Minis', mate. I hope that blokes will buy them for their collections, or even that sheilas buy them for their ankle-biters. Maybe they'll start to collect them too! They're aces, mate." We are told there are also plans the change the name of the 'Vinimates' line to 'Vinis' during 2024. No words yet if Playmates is planning a similar move,... mate. More news at 11:00... This article was approved by an Australian. *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  2. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the fifth wave of The Lord of the Rings figures by Diamond Select Toys, which includes Boromir and... his murderer, Lurtz (awkwaaaard!). As a friend of mine pointed out to me recently, the weather is starting to be cold - A few degrees less and the season will be perfect for a LOTR marathon. It is tradition, after all! The Lord of the Rings line from DST is a line of 7" figures based on the movies. There are 5 waves of 2 figures (the first 3 waves included a beautiful 13" build-a-figure Sauron) and a deluxe set with Gollum. The figures are designed by Eamon O'Donoghue and sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios. Boromir of Gondor, as portrayed by Sean Bean, has a pretty decent likeness. Boromir includes an extra set of hands (with or without gloves), a sword with sheath, a knife with sheath, a shield and his horn of Gondor. The figure has a removable cloak. The long tunic looks great and has lots of details, but does hinder the articulation of the legs a lot. As a sidenote, sadly, the figure does not have magnets all over so that we can cover him with arrows, as jokingly teased by Zach Oat from Diamond Select Toys during an episode of Adventures in Collecting podcast (Hi Erik, hi Dave!). Lurtz, the first leader of the Uruk-hai scouts in 'The Fellowship of the Ring', comes with 2 heads (normal and screaming, both ugly!), a sword, a shield, his bow and a small quiver with 3 arrows. This figure looks awesome and had pretty decent articulation (double knees!) and great details. With that wave, you can recreate the scene when Boromir gets killed. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but you can! You can also recreate a couple of well-known memes with that wave, which is something I am particularly fond of! The next wave (wave 6) will have Samwise Gamgee and Saruman, and the following wave, revealed at various conventions during the summer, will have Gandalf the White and a two-pack with Merry and Pippin. A huge thank you to Diamond Select Toys for those figures! More news at 11:00... One does not simply review a Boromir figure and not recreate the meme!
  3. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the third wave of Invincible figures and the Monster Girl Deluxe set by Diamond Select Toys. Invincible is a great comic book by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Outcast, Thief of Thieves,...), but also an animated series on Amazon Prime. The first season came out in 2021, and the second season will start in November. The third wave includes Dupli-Kate and Allen the Alien. Dupli-Kate is a superhero with the ability to... duplicate herself (I would have never guessed!) and is a member of the Guardians of the Globe. The figure comes with an extra head, 4 extra pairs of hands, a sheet of numbered decals, a severed leg, a severed arm and various severed attachments. Dupli-Kate can have many 'clones', and in true Robert Kirkman fashion, it gets gruesome for the clones as they end up being dismembered or killed. The figure comes with a set of numbered decals, so that you can keep track of which clone you're using. If you're army-building, you can have several of her with different numbers (very clever!). The severed parts are also quite graphic. Not a character I would have done that early in the line, but still a fun addition. Allen the Alien, which will now forever be voiced by Seth Rogen in my head, is a big, fun figure. He's an alien from the Coalition of Planets. He comes with an extra head, 5 extra pairs of hands, a planetary scanner, a bowl of alien food, and 3 'Sequids'. It's bulkier than the other characters, and has very good likeness. The sequids accessories are nice, as you can stage your own alien invasion by attaching them to other character's heads. His scanner shows 'Urath' (which is what he thought was 'Earth'). Talking about bulkier figure, the Deluxe Monster girl set is the latest item from Diamond Select Toys' Invincible line. It includes a huge Monster Girl figure, as well as a semi-articulated figure of Amanda, her human form. So it's a two-pack (or a one-and-a-half-pack?). The Amanda figure can't do very much (ball joints on neck and arms, and waist swivel), but the Monster Girl figure sure can. The Monster Girl figure comes with 2 extra heads and 2 extra pairs of hands. It towers over the other figures from the line, both in height and width. It's pretty heavy too! A fun, big 'Hulk' kind of character. Diamond Select Toys has revealed 2 more figures for that line at the recent New York Toy Fair, Rex Splode and a Mauler twin(s), another good candidate for army-building. More news at 11:00... "Invincible? A little optimistic, isn't it? I just fought you and I think you're quite -vincible..."
  4. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the first wave of Invincible figures from Diamond Select Toys. Invincible is an amazing comic book by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) that started nearly two decades ago (2003, I feel old), but also a decent animated series on Amazon Prime. The first season came out in early 2021, and we are still waiting for an update about when season 2 will air. Diamond Select Toys decided to base the figures on the animated series, which is... a choice, considering animation and design were not the strongest points of the show. That means we'll get simplified versions of the characters from the awesome art from the comic book by Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley. Oh well... First, the main character: Mark Grayson, Invincible himself. The figure comes with an angry headsculpt, extra hands, a baseball glove, a baseball, a baseball with effect, a piece of rubble and a stand. The figure looks rather mid, I'm not gonna lie. The colors are kind of dull, I would have loved brighter colors, or even darker yellow. The skin tone is also a bit off. It's very simple, the articulations are okay-ish. The flight stand is an absolute piece of trash, though. It barely holds the figure up and falls down in pieces when you try to move it a little. I did not have a great experience with the flight stand AT ALL. Also, the figure has flat hands to put him in a flying pose...but the figure cannot look up. So he will fly in a very awkward position, looking down. Yay! Omni-man, Mark's father, on the other hand, is a pretty decent figure. The figure comes with an angry headsculpt as well, a few extra hands, a baseball glove and a non articulated flight stand, for some reason. Omni-man is an incredible character, who starts in the comic book as a great father and mentor to Invincible until it is revealed that he is a huge villain, a vitrumite from another planet who was sent to conquer earth. There's so much more happening in the comic book with this character, but if you watch the first episode of the animated series until the very end, you'll figure it out. The figure has limited articulation as well, the cape is quite hard, but the paint and headsculpt are way better on this one. Unfortunately, he suffers from the same issue as Invincible, where he has hands for a flying pose, while he cannot look up. *sigh* The non-articulated flight stand is very useful also, as it allows you to make him levitate a whole quarter of a inch (1mm)! So, yeah... these are not amazing figures. They look good together in a static pose, but you won't be able to get them in crazy poses. But since there were only a couple other figures available for that franchise up to now (Invincible and Atom Eve from McFarlane Toys, distributed by Skybound, in normal and bloody versions), we'll make do with what we have for now! A second wave was already announced with Atom Eve and Robot. Robot looks pretty great, thanks to his simple design, but Atom Eve... not so much. We'll see how they end up when they'll be released later this year. More news at 11:00... THINK, MARK! THINK!

  10. The folks at swactionnews have made a discovery that indicates Diamond Select Toys is expanding their 7" Select line of action figures to Star Wars. This 7" Star Wars Select Boba Fett figure which is being sold as a Disney Store exclusive was discovered at a Disney hotel. No word on price, but if they cost the same as the Disney Store exclusive Marvel Select figures that DST does, this will likely cost about $35. The figure appears to come with Fett's riffle and has blast effects for the weapon, jetback and one for his flamethrower. The figure also has a alternate hand. Articulation on these figures are usually on par with say a Black Series figure, though maybe a little less. The figure if it follows the pattern of the Marvel Select line will be available at Disney stores and eventually on the shop.Disney website.
