Diamond Select Star Wars

Mon Oct 05, 2020 5:42 am

I saw on swactionnews Instagram a picture of a Diamond Select Boba Fett. Maybe someone can post the pic or something since I don’t know how to link or get pics from Instagram.

But has anyone heard of this line even starting? Another SW scale. I’d be interested in Vader and a Beskar Mando.

It could be a new line exclusive to Disney Store. They had those 7in metal figures.

Thank you!! I thought so too but they do make Marvel figures so why not? Plus these would be so much better than those metal figures.

Whoa. I walked away from Star Wars collecting some years ago, but I would dip into this.

The sticker seems to indicate it’s exclusive to the Disney Store but that’s exactly why it seems so weird. They’ve done at least one new sculpt for the Elite Series line this year meaning they haven’t completely abandoned it, so a new 7 inch line is surprising.

Maybe this is how they transition away from the Elite series? A lot of those were on clearance that last few times. I could never pull the trigger on any of them. Even when Vader was $10. Just going by this shows it would be better. Extra hands and effect parts

I have been wanting DST to do a Select style Star Wars line for ages! This is great news! And a little domestic competition for Hasbro is a good thing. I'm wondering if they saw the Boba Fett from DST and said we could do that and boom - Black Series ROTJ Fett.

I’m all for this. Love all the accessories. I’d like to see what Diamond Select could do with troopers especially. Stormtroopers, Clone Troopers, bring ‘em on!

Obviously Disney gonna Disney and Hasbro gonna Hasbro, but I wonder if this is a response to Hasbro not keeping DisneyStore supplied with enough of the characters that sell, so Disney just said screw it, "Hey Diamond! You wanna sell us a Star Wars line that we can order on a character by character basis?"

Of course DST screamed in glee and then fainted.

Curious when this gets debuted, though, and of all the details.

Not really interested because of the scale, but if they do some cantina type aliens then all bets are off. Anything that can blend well with black series (kind of like the DS Colossus with Legends) then I WILL bite.

Definitely a cool surprise. I don't think anyone guessed DS doing Star Wars.
