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 in!


Brenden W.

Hello, I was wondering why the G.I. Joe Joseph Colton Gallery Diorama was cancelled? It was one of my favorite pieces that you guys have ever done and I was really looking forward to it.

DST CHUCK: Orders were too low to go into production. Maybe we did not present the piece or the flocked hair well, so we might try again in the future. When folks saw it in person at shows they really seemed to like it.


Arsh K.

Hi, Are you guys planning to make Marvel Select action figures of Deadpool and Wolverine from Deadpool 3?

DST CHUCK: We would very much like to.



With the success of the Lord of the Rings line will we see an expansion on the Hobbit movies specifically the dwarves? Also wanted to know will animals/mounts be made like the wargs?

DST CHUCK: As long as each new series sells well and has the support of fans and retailers, we will keep going. I am not sure about the larger pieces, but we’ll see.


Diogo G.

Are you planning to release more Lord of the Rings figures from the Gallery line, besides Gandalf and Aragorn? Thank you.

DST CHUCK: Absolutely! The Cave Troll is next, followed by Legolas!


Robin C.

Will there be a Skottie Young Silver Surfer non-chrome regular version?

DST CHUCK: Yes, it is up for pre-order now!


Saroop S.

Absolutely love the legends in 3D MCU line. Can you tell us what characters are coming up next?

DST CHUCK: I think the next few releases will be Marvel Comics, but we hope to do more MCU.


Gerard R.

Is there a plan to create a Wave 3 set of Cobra Kai figures? I hope so. Need to include Mike Barnes.

DST CHUCK: Not right now, but we are waiting to see what season 6 has in store for all of us.


Corey H.

Has Diamond Select Toys ceased producing future DC Comics statues?

DST CHUCK: For the time being we are not producing DC Gallery pieces.


Jerry H.

Now that the you guys have released the complete Fantastic Four team on the Select line, any chance of an update or re-release of characters like Doctor Doom or the Silver Surfer?

DST CHUCK: Right now our focus is on new characters, but never say never.


Tyler S.

Recently, the DS Avatar: The Last Airbender – Toph and Iroh PVC Statues were announced for Q1 2024 (which is amazing). Previously, there have been a Katara, Aang, and Zuko. The Zuko in particular was a scene from the last Agni Kai with his sister, Azula. Does DS have any plans on releasing an Azula in contrast (to pair with eh Zuko in parallel)? I have been searching online for over two years for this, so any input would be SO appreciated!

DST CHUCK: I don’t think we have that specific piece planned at this time, but once we see how Toph and Iroh sell, we’ll decide what is next.


Jake M.

Will there be much more Star Wars statues/busts from the prequel trilogy era? I know that they are not as popular as the original trilogy, but there are still lots of prequels fans, don’t forget! Not that much from the prequel era statues/busts get produced, so it would be good to see the prequels get more attention. Thank you.

DST CHUCK: Yes, for sure. We try to mix in all movies, VG, books, movies, shows and all content.


Oscar G. 

Hello, I am a big fan of the Pacific Rim Series and Diamond Select Figures. Does Diamond Select plan to release any Pacific Rim The Black or Kaiju figures in the future? Thank you.

DST CHUCK: Sorry, as of now we are taking a break from the Pacific RIm lines.


Kenneth E.

Will there be Marvel select figures for Marvel's Spider-Man 2?

DST CHUCK: There are none planned at this time
