Hey there MUReview Fans! I’m a guest writer and I attended the Diamond Select Toys panel at New York Comic Con. Overall, I want to say that Rick from Diamond did a great job with the the set up and the information for giving us, the fans, what we wanted to know. He had a raffle and was really organized. The only downside I had with the panel was that we couldn’t take pictures of what was being presented; but respectively so since a lot of the information was was still concept control art.
