Promit D.
Any plans for a Jim Lee-inspired resin statue of Cyclops in the near future?

DSTChuck: We did one many years ago, but nothing new planned at this time.


James Y.
Do you know if DST will ever make a Marvel Gallery She-Hulk figure?

DSTChuck: Never say never!


Daniel E.
A few questions,
#1. I noticed that in the kingdom hearts 3 wave 1 the assortment is the maleficent and Sora 2 pack and the Donald and Goofy two pack, is that Donald and Goofy the new toy story versions that were revealed at toy fair?
#2. any possible plans for releasing key blade packs? there’s definitely a market for them seeing as to the play arts arms action figure key blade set can go anywhere from $150 to $400
#3. Where is the school girl Kari and recoded version of Mickey we saw a revealed a while back ago?
love most of your kh products, hooded organization 13 was a great figure, so is Pete. Noticed that the Castlevania figures have really nice anime style faces and I think that would translate to giving us a better Sora head sculpts along with the other human characters. keep up the great work!

DSTChuck:
1) The Donald and Goofy are the same as KH2 , just now in KH3 package together.
2) Sorry we have no plans at this time to release a pack of just Keyblades.
3) With the closing of TRU, we had to adjust our release line up, we’ll have to see how it all shakes out before we can confirm everything shown will come out.
4) The Kingdom Hearts license does not allow us the creative latitude we have with Castlevania. Nick J.
Hi, any plans to ever make an Adam Warlock Marvel Select action figure? I need to finish my Infinity Gauntlet set 😊 please

DSTChuck: Not planned at this time, but never say never.

Kudos for such incredible job with all of your licenses. Particularly love your PVC DC gallery lines and thrilled to see Batwoman joining the DCTV line.
Any chance you’d include CW Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) later on?

DSTChuck: Sorry, we are not able to produce product based on that character.


Combine Z.
hello dst! I want to know will you make a normal type Drone Jaeger from Pacific Rim: Uprising? Also, since most Jaegers from the movie have been made into figures, will you make Jaegers from the comic or coming Netflix anime series?

DSTChuck: No current plans for a new drone, but we would be interesting in seeing what they have for the Anime series, for sure.


Brandon K.
With Toy Fair 2019 behind us and no showing of Ghostbusters or Muppets, are these lines officially no longer being produced?

DSTChuck: We are not done with those lines.

Pretty excited for your Netflix’s Castlevania products. Those statues and action figures shown at ToyFair 2019 look amazing. I was wondering if we are getting Castlevania stuff for the Minimates line? And if it does, when can we expect more info about it?

DSTChuck: If there is interest, we would love to do Castlevania Minimates.


Carter M.
Will you ever go back to create characters in Minimate form from previous marvel cinematic universe films? An example would be Korg and Miek from Thor Ragnarok or Ned and MJ from Spider-Man Homecoming or even Luis and the X Con crew from Antman and the Wasp

DSTChuck: There are potential licensing issues with going back on some of those movies, so honestly I am not sure. There is nothing planned, though.



Ken
Will you ever offer a diorama in the $45 to $50 range of Marvel villain Dr. Doom? Seems like it would be a huge seller!

DSTChuck: At this time we are not producing characters from the Fantastic Four family, but never say never!


Karlie H.
Hello! My name is Karlie and I’m a huge Marvel Defenders fan. I was curious if Colleen Wing will ever get a PVC like the others? And if you guys can also make a Valkyrie one from the comics as well:) I look forward to hearing back and I love your stuff!

DSTChuck: At this time we have no plans for more Netflix Marvel products. As for a Gallery of Valkyrie, never say never!


Blake J.
Will y’all please make a Lugosi Dracula and Karloff Frankenstein with the updated articulation for your Universal Monsters Select line? You can’t have all of the others with the new joints and not make the two arguably biggest of the Universal lineup! Those two are the last we need to be complete. Thank you beforehand for your time.

DSTChuck: Right now we are not making Universal Monsters products, but for sure we have not ruled it out.


Brandon P.
I just saw pictures of the Kingdom Hearts Hercules 2-pack. Awesome job! I never I see decent looking figures from Disney movies U watched growing up. Any chance we may see an Aladdin 2-pack?

DSTChuck: What we are allowed to do for Kingdom Hearts is very specific and at times confusing – LOL- so we’ll have to see.

Steve M.
Now that there is going to be a Marshmallow Egon figure, are there plans for any others, like perhaps GB2 Janine or maybe the courtroom versions, or even a lab coat Egon?

DSTChuck: None of those are planned at this time.


Tony W.
I wanted to know if there are any plans to make a 1/6 Scale Premier Kingpin. The only one that I know of is a Bowen and it starts at $700. There is a big community of collectors on facebook that have been asking. Thanks.

DSTChuck: Kingpin has been discussed in several formats!


Danny M.
Your Kelvin timeline Select Kirk and Spock are outstanding! The accessories and likenesses are fantastic plus the articulation. I haven’t stopped playing with them since I got them! If these do okay can we expect maybe a couple figures a year to complete the crew hopefully?

DSTChuck: We had hoped so, but with the demise of the Kelvin timeline, it’s going to be an uphill climb. Still got questions? Submit your question in the drop-down form up top, or e-mail DSTChuck!
