Isn't Diamond Select more Walmart than collectable? Does anyone brag about their DST collection? I guess we will see.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

They definitely skew more toward the budget-conscious collector, but some of their 1:6 scale statues are pretty cool. They've become the closest thing to a Bowen Designs replacement we've got right now. If this acquisition means we'll get Gentle Giant quality products with Diamond Select prices and release schedule, then that sounds pretty great to me.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Maybe we’ll get more DC and Marvel Jumbo figures now.
