Hey there collectors, Ask DST is back! Diamond Select Toys president DSTChuck is here to give yout the inside scoop on upcoming releases, answer your inquiries about our current lines, and maybe even drop a hint or two about what's coming down the pipeline. So sit back, relax, and dive into our Marvel, Muppets, The Walking Dead, Lord of the Rings lines and more!


Darren B.

Once the fellowship is complete, are there plans for more LOTR figures?

DSTChuck: I could see us doing LotR products as long as WB wants and fans support it!


Cason J.

Could we see a Rick Grimes statue similar to the Michonne one that was announced?

DSTChuck: That is very possible.


Gabriel C.

Any plans on completing X-Men’s Gold Team for the Marvel Select line.

DSTChuck: Due to several factors, it’s very hard to team build Marvel Select, but maybe after time passes it will work out that we can.


Braulio A.

Is their a possibility of Marvel Select Figures for the new Marvel's Spider-Man 2 game? Specifically, the symbiote Spider-Man suit. You guys killed it on your Spider-Man from the original game.

DSTChuck: I think its entirely possible, for SURE we plan / hope to make product based on the new game.


Austin W.

Will the Iron Man MK1 from 2019 ever be actually produced? I thought it was actually a great looking statue in resin.

DSTChuck: Sadly I do not think so, due to the size and all the details, it would be very, very expensive.


Bob J.

Will there be Green Hornet (Van Williams) action figures to join the Kato (Bruce Lee) ones?

DSTChuck: Sorry, there are none planned at this time.


Graham T.

I saw that Uncle Deadly and Pepe went up for pre-order on October 20th. That's great news! How soon can we expect to see the next Muppet figure two-pack after them? I hope y'all are planning many more Muppet figures.

DSTChuck: I think at this time, if sales are strong enough, we would like to do a couple of new 2-packs per year on Muppets – tops might be three.


Huston P.

Will you be making any more MCU or Star Wars figures this year? Also, for Star Wars, any possibility on and Ahsoka and Thrawn?

DSTChuck: Disney has not requested any Star Wars figures for the end of 2023 or at least the first half of 2024, sorry. New MCU figures are possible, some have been discussed.


Josh L.

Good morning! I’ve recently noticed that Diamond Select released collectible busts for characters featured in The Matrix films. My question is, are there any plans to produce any 7” scale, articulated action figures from The Matrix since you currently have the license? To my knowledge, there haven’t been any recent releases of action figures from this franchise in a long while from any company, and I have zero doubt collectors like me would love to have figures especially of Neo, Trinity, Morpheus, and Agent Smith. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

DSTChuck: I am sorry, we have not done any busts yet, so far just the Gallery PVC Dioramas. We would love to do action figures and resin, if there is enough collector interest.


Daniel A.

Any update on when will we'll see the Wampa or Luke Dagobah Mini Busts previewed at SWCA in 2022 up for pre-order?

DSTChuck: The Dagobah Luke is up for pre-order currently. We’ll see about the Wampa.



Will you make more Invincible figures? Will characters like Rex, Black Samson, Battle Beast, Immortal be produced in the near future?

DSTChuck: So far we have released four series andf a deluxe two pack. Series 5 is now up for pre-order with Rex Splode and the Mauler Twins. Once we get caught up on shipping those, we will look into further characters.
