Ask DST #412: Marvel, Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts & More!

It’s time for a new Ask DST, and this may be one of our biggest ever! DSTChuck is coming back after a brief hiatus, and he’s answering all of the questions in his inbox, which is a metric Q-ton (we think that’s the correct unit of measure). From Marvel Select to Marvel Gallery to Star Wars to Kingdom Hearts and everything in between, it’s a Q-ton of Qs and an A-load of A’s! Read on, then submit your question in the drop-down form up top or e-mail DSTChuck!

Hi. I recently discovered your Marvel Animated Statues. Specifically the mini heroes. They are awesome! Do you intend on creating more? What are your plans for this line? Please share.

DSTChuck: Glad you like them! There are not any more planned right now, but if the first series does well for sure we’d like to do more. The statue line will continue, however.


Raphael L.
Do you ever plan on making a diamond select predator figure. This would be a dream come true.

DSTChuck: Right now, we are not able to make action figures, but you never know.


Philip M.
Are you still going to make more of the jumbo Star Wars figures?

DSTChuck: Yes, we do have more planned.


Carlos
hi i just wanted to say im a big of you guys and collect your marvel select line and wanted to ask if there is a possibility for a kaine scarlet spider in the future hes my favorite comic character and i would love to get a figure from you guys thanks.

DSTChuck: He is not in the plans right now, but never say never!


Yechiel L
Please create a Vader in bacta tank. Anything Vader sells, and this is one thing that would complete any collection. How about it?

DSTChuck: That is not something we have discussed, but you never know.


endgamewgwave Adam S.
With DST not making minimates for Spider-Man: Far From Home and skipping some major looks from Endgame do you have any concerns MCU fans might lose interest? Personally, with all the holes I’m seeing I’m unsure I want to continue my collection.

DSTChuck: The movies are always tricky, especially something huge like Endgame – there is no way to get to every character every fan loves.


Adam L.
Are you able to tell me if you have plans to do Marvel Gallery PVC Statues of Scarlet Witch, Vision, Winter Solider, War Machine, Falcon, Hawkeye, Nebula & Mantis?

DSTChuck: I would think at some point we would get to most of those for the comic universe, but for movies not all of those are possible.


Andrej B.
Hello! Will you be making the Marvel select Mark 85 Iron Man from Endgame and the Netflix Punisher?

DSTChuck: Right now, we have no plans for more product from the Netflix shows. For Endgame, we’ll see.


Mitchell M.
Kingdom Hearts 6-7 inch action figure line, are y’all going to release Hades in that line? Cuz I think it’d be a good idea since he is one of the most popular Disney villains and characters.

DSTChuck: At this time, he is not in the plans, but for sure we would love to be able to include him.


Leanne Y.
Hello DST! just wanna ask if theres any plan on making new figure of select loki ?

DSTChuck: We do not have a comic one planned at this time, but a movie very might be possible in the future.


Alan
My question is about your new line of Westworld figures. I know the figure shown off are just prototypes, but I noticed that the Dolores, Man in Black and Ford figures have no noticeable bicep swivel or thigh swivel articulation.
Can you confirm whether or not the figures will have bicep and thigh swivels on the final product?

DSTChuck: As you said, the figures we showed were early resin prototypes. We will share production pictures when they are available.

With the building hype for the newest Magic: The Gathering expansion, War of the Spark, and a plethora of Planeswalkers to pick from, have you ever considered delving into the Magic Multiverse? If you made MTG Minimates, I would buy, all of them.

DSTChuck: At this time we do not have plans for MTG products, but it has been discussed.


Dan R.
Any plans on a real ghostbusters slimer in a bust bank version? Thanks

DSTChuck: Sorry, we do not have plans for another bank.


Steve M.
You’ve made some really great Ghostbusters figures. What are the chances you’d ever consider putting out some full size props, like the ghost trap and PKE meter?

DSTChuck: It’s been discussed, but there are no plans at this time.


Christopher B
Will we ever see a D-7 or Tholian/Aurora ?

DSTChuck: I am sorry, those Star Trek ships not in the plans at this time.


Jason W.
Hi. I love the PVC line of figures you all have been doing. I’ve written a few times before and definitely got what I asked for. (White Phoenix) I’m a huge X-Men fan and already have the 3 Phoenix PVC’s and I’m trying to collect the other few figures in the X-Men line as well. I was wondering if there are more plans for the X-Men in the PVC line? I know Mr. Sinister and Dazzler are coming up and I can’t wait, but there are so many characters and villains I’d love to see get made. The X-Men don’t seem to get as many figures as the MCU figures but I’m excited to see what the future holds for my favorite X-characters.

DSTChuck: I am sure we will do more X-Characters, but it would take decades to get to all of them.


Juan R.
Has D Select put any thought into a Mary Jane Watson Statue? Gallery or Premier

DSTChuck: We did a MJ statue years ago, but I would think yes, we would do another or a Gallery at some point.


Brett Y.
I love that there is a Marvel Select Sandman. The first villian release except for the Disney Store Thanos in a few years. Whats the chances we can get some more villian releases for Marvel Select? I would love to see more X-men villians like Apocalypse, Mr Sinister, or Omega Red.

DSTChuck: We don’t have an aversion to villains, we just try to go with the next choice – sometimes it’s the most requested, or a team we have not touched in a while.


Josh D.
you guys have done an awesome job with figures and I am a huge sailor moon fan. have you guys ever considered starting a sailor moon line. I would love to see sailor moon figures

DSTChuck: Sorry that is not a license we have looked into.


Brian K.
Hi I would like to know when you going to make Batman the animated series clock king bust. Thank you

DSTChuck: I am sorry, he is not in the plans at this time.


James Y.
Will there be Marvel Gallery version release of She-Hulk?

DSTChuck: I would think in the near future we would do one of her!


Jason F.
The original solicitations for the DS Kingdom Hearts series 3 figures showed that Donald in his Space Paranoids (Tron) form would be included but he seems to be missing from the final products. Are there still plans to produce a figure of this version of Donald?

DSTChuck: We would love to find a way to release that figure, and we are working on it.


Dan R.
Any chance of creepshow, mr Barlow from Salem’s lot, rawhead rex, the howling werewolf, the monster squad, fright night, house(1986) or any horror related figures in the future? Thanks

DSTChuck: None of those are in the plans, but we do have some horror Gallery pieces are working on right now.


Tim N.
After Bruce Wayne, will there be any more Batman 66 Busts or Statues?

DSTChuck: I honestly don’t know – there are a couple more busts I’d like to do, but the sales have not been great…


Stefan G.
Question: With the impending release of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, will we potentially see more Kevin Smith figures? Because I bought all of them, and I’d LOVE more, possibly a better articulated Jay and Bob from their new movie?

DSTChuck: I think that might be possible, talks are ongoing.


Max B.
Will you create action figure from Spider-Man PlayStation 4 game?

DSTChuck: We are taking a very close look at the success of the game and the demand for that look.


Jeremiah J.
I’m really happy to see more Disney characters are being released in the Kingdom Hearts Select line. Maleficent and Hercules look great!
Is there any chance of Disney’s Beast being made? He would make for an amazing action figure, and DST does those larger characters better than any company I know. Here’s hoping!

DSTChuck: While the Disney characters are fun to work on, the line has to focus on KH and characters in the KH look, so it’s tricky.


Francis
Is there a chance that we’ll get Ronan in Marvel Select format? Furthermore, if Captain Marvel comes with a GOTG collection base (a part of it), does it mean that we’ll see more figures from the movie, in a build a base type of format? I know it’s a long shot, but that would make me really happy.
Thank you for all your great work! Just got the Wasp, love it.

DSTChuck: At this time, we do not have more figures planned for the Captain Marvel movie.


Nathan M.
Will you ever return to the Pulp Fiction 7″ line and make a save two? Please! We at least need Vincent Vega.

DSTChuck: I agree, for sure, it’s sad we were never able to get the Vincent figure out… but it does not look like we’re going to be able to release it.


Mike D.
I would like to know if DST would possibly reconsider releasing the Borg wave that was canceled in 2009? More specifically the three different Seven of Nine figures

DSTChuck: I do not think that is in the discussion at this time.


Christopher J.
Will you be continuing the Marvel Premier Statue Spiderman line? Looking forward to Sandman, Rhino, Lizard, Kraven, Carnage and Doc Oct. I already have the Spiderman, Spider-Gwen, Venom, Hob Goblin (PO) and Green Goblin (PO).

DSTChuck: The Marvel Premier statue line is an ongoing line, so more Spidey cast members are possible!


Adam H.
As you may be aware, it appears that NBC Universal has finally released their stranglehold on the merchandising licence for “Xena: Warrior Princess” (i.e. Funko is producing a Xena Pop in 2019).
Would DST have any interest in pursuing the Xena: Warrior Princess line to make 7″ action figures (and maybe some other items, like statues)? Xena: Warrior Princess will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020 which could provide a good marketing opportunity to sell much needed and desired new merchandise to hardcore, nutball Xenites like myself and the many, many newer fans of the series who have discovered the iconic 90s TV series on various streaming services.

DSTChuck: We have discussed it from time to time, but it’s not in the plans at this time.


Jas P.
I’m a huge Marvel Select lover and collector, I understand the lack of certain characters that aren’t as popular, anyways my question is: Is there a chance that we’ll get to see a Galactus figure in the future? It’s my favorite and I know a lot of people would love it.

DSTChuck: He would be lots of fun to do, but I’m just not sure how we would be able to handle his size in this line.


John I.
Any chance we get Howard the Duck in Select format? How about Mr. Sinister or other villains this year?

DSTChuck: Sandman is the current villain, but I am not sure who we are doing yet for the back half of 2020. I don’t think we have a Howard in the plans.


Matthieu T.
Do you have in your boxes the wonderful idea of prosting a statue of the Grand Admiral Thrawn?

DSTChuck: Lots of folks on the team are a big fan of Star Wars: Rebels, so we’ll see!
