Exclusive Comic-Con 2012 Diamond Select Toys Unveiled

Posted by No_Name_ (16193 posts) - - Show Bio

The cool thing about Comic-Con International is the amount of access that we get to all sorts of exclusive stuff at the show. And although we have a while yet before the show actually hits, Diamond revealed some of the toys that will be made available exclusively to people who plan on attending. The items this year range from an exclusive limited edition Darkchylde statue, to AVX minimates and a whole lot more. What toys would you like to pick up at the show?

Oh, and don't worry -- if you see something you like, there's a good chance it might pop up on Ebay sometime in late July. Because you know, not everyone can go to Comic-Con, but some of us can still get our hands on these precious little relics.

AVX: Avengers Vs. X-Men Marvel Minimates Box Set

The hottest comics crossover of the summer is now the coolest con-exclusive Minimate 4-pack!

Hope’s first-ever Minimate 2-inch minifigure is joined by three brand-new Minimates of Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Colossus in his new Juggernaut-inspired look.

If I decided to go to a comic-con, would I need to bring a ridiculous amount of money?

#11 Posted by htb106 (1724 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm glad there aren't any I desperately want because I'm not going to any comic-cons this year.

But I do like the look of the X-Men minis.
