Finally my first piece of merch from this years San Diego Comic Con arrived; Podcast Pal Kevin Smith. (I still don’t know why they put a Superman spit-curl on every Kevin Smith figure they produce?).
(Books for scale)
This is some of the new collectibles that have come in over the last few weeks!
In no particular order:
A mere two weeks ago – Diamond Select Toys hinted at more View Askew goodness… today pictures of Dante & Jay in Black & White have appeared on Mr Smith’s instagram/facebook.
And in keeping with the monochrome nature of Clerks and the figures – a decidedly grey Quickstop to join (the more naturally grey) RST Video (there is some color in the poster in the window).
Presumably if sales are good a Black & White Randal and Silent Bob can’t be too far away.
Just saw this on facebook:
Diamond Select says there’s more fun stuff on the way… could it be Dante and Randal with a Quick Stop backdrop?
Mr Smith has just posted the above picture on his instagram: Comic Book Men Minimates
*sigh* if only they were InAction figures… however still very cool.
No release date given yet.
Series 2 is go!
A Diamond Select Toys release! It’s an all-new assortment of 7-inch action figures from the popular Kevin Smith movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back! Comedy duo Jay and Silent Bob dress up like their alter egos, Bluntman and Chronic, and face off against the villainous Cock-Knocker! Each figure comes with an energy-sword weapon and part of the Bluntcave set – collect all three to re-create the famous climactic scene of the movie! Each figure comes packaged in a display-ready Select blister card, with spine artwork for shelf reference.
Diamond Select Toys kick off their Select Action Figure line with Series 1 featuring our heroes Jay and Silent Bob!
It’s been 20 years since we met Jay & Silent Bob in Clerks, and DST is celebrating the less-than-dynamic duo’s anniversary with their most realistic action figures ever!
Based on their appearances in Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back, these 7-inch scale figures include multiple interchangeable parts, multiple points of articulation, and connecting display bases depicting the interior and exterior of RST Video. Packaged in Select-style display packaging, with spine artwork. Sculpted by Patrick Piggott!
