David Hasselhoff dominated syndicated TV for years thanks to re-runs of Knight Rider and Baywatch tearing up the airwaves at all hours of the night. While that is all well and good, we remember Michael Knight and KITT turboboost-ing their way in primetime on NBC more than Mitch Buchannon sweating on the beach! Man, we couldn't get enough of Knight Rider and now Diamond Select Toys has flooded our senses with leather jackets and Trans Ams thanks to the release of two new Minimates vehicles! Join us for our review of KITT, KARR, and two Minimates of The Hoff!

The Munsters have been all over the pop culture sites lately (including here at MTV Geek) since the announcement of a TV reboot headed by director Bryan Singer. While we have no idea how they're gonna make this show work outside of the original's half-hour sitcom format, we appreciate the effort. However, we also have a fondness for the vintage series and what it represented: a big pile of insanity and monsters! Our friends over at Diamond Select Toys have recently released action figures based on those classic TV episodes and the actors and actresses that made a family of undead abominations such a loveable commodity. join us as we take a closer look at DST's The Munsters Select series 1!

Eddie Brock has been a jerk from day one. That's right, the Marvel Comics' character started out whining about Pete Parker being luckier than he was and even went as far to become one, if not THE, biggest Spider-Man villain of all time in the guise of Venom. Years of battery and abuse followed, with limited stints as an anti-hero. Naturally, we were pretty skeptical when this once unrepentant villain became a "healer of men" with his Anti-Venom persona. Boy, we we wrong. Hell, up until the final events of the recent Spider-Island storyline, we were still waiting for this guy to show his true colors and turn on our Friendly Neighborhood Wall Crawler. Regardless of all that, the Anti-Venom costume is a great design and he's been one of the few Marvel Select figures we both missed out on buying AND still want to this day. Now, our friends at Diamond Select Toys are making our unspoken wish come true with the re-release of this fan-favorite figure!

Norman Osborn has run his course. We're getting kind of tired of seeing his weird-ass haircut and evil world-conquering schemes in the Marvel Universe. We miss him just being the Green Goblin, tooling around NYC on his glider and tossing pumpkin bombs at old ladies until Spider-man shows up to whip his ass. That's why were excited to find out Diamond Select Toys has heard our private thoughts (no doubt thanks to a Cerebro-type device) and are releasing a figure of the classic Green Goblin in their ever-better Marvel Select line of figures.

Diamond Select Toys is known primarily for their lines of Minimates and Marvel Select action figures. Well, they’re looking to change their rep with a new line of highly-collectible statues that features characters both recognizable and all-new!

"Femme fatale." The French phrase has come to describe any mysterious, bewitching beauty, but one must remember the English translation, which is "deadly woman." These women may seduce you, but they will also rip your heart out (literally and/or metaphorically) when you have outlived your usefulness. It's why Diamond Select Toys chose the name for our line of 9-inch PVC statues -- the women we're depicting are beautiful, but they're also quite dangerous, as you can tell by the weapons they carry. (Although some are perfectly willing to make do with just their claws.) The sculpts on our four most recently announced pieces are all pretty killer, as well -- check 'em out below, and order the latest, Executioner Dawn, in the latest Previews!

 

Executioner Dawn
Why a third statue of Dawn? Because the goddess of birth and rebirth appears differently to everyone who sees her -- sometimes she's an innocent beauty, sometimes a fierce warrior. In the pages of Cry for Dawn, she has been Isis, Kali, Gaia, Mother Earth and more, the guardian of witches and the lover of Death. And as a lover of Death, she is often a dispenser of death, as well. The Executioner Dawn Femme Fatales statue is sculpted by Sam Greenwell, based on a design by Dawn creator Joseph Michael Linsner for the cover of Cry for Dawn #8. (Coming in February 2012) Read More...

How a vampire and a re-animated corpse procreate and give birth to a werewolf is anybody's guess. That's just the magic of classic television like The Munsters! The Munsters originally aired from September 24, 1964 to May 12, 1966, and lasted for for 70 episodes-- not too shabby considering the Addams Family was on TV during the same time period. Always a cult-favorite, The Munsters have seen a lot of toy-love over the years, but it's mostly been relegated to the Munster Coach (their wicked hot-rod). Now Diamond Select Toys is remedying the situation with the release of fully articulated action figures in the same vein as their Universal Monsters toys. Read More...
