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...

These custom LEGO builds keep getting better and better. Over the course of a month artist Sean Kenney and his team recreated the Trump International Hotel & Tower using 65,000 plastic bricks and it stands 10-feet tall!

The real Trump Hotel & Tower has glass covering the entire exterior that reflects the city’s skyline and the team behind this build thought their scaled down version should have the same effect. The only problem is reflective glass LEGO bricks are a little hard to come by. Read More...
