This it folks, the end of formal Toy Fair 2015 coverage, everything I was able to capture live with my own eyes and ears, ends here. I assure you, I have saved the absolute best for last. Last year at Toy Fair, I missed my time with Zach from Diamond Select Toys and I was honestly really upset about that. Zach is one of the most passionate, knowledgeable and outright awesome people in the world of toys. He is a credit to all that Diamond Select has achieved and I really look forward to every chance I get to meet up with him and talk shop…or well, listen shop anyway! We have so much information for you, so many incredible reveals for you, so many release dates and prices, and …AND DOCTOR STRANGE!! Let us begin….
Chiefly important to MUReview.net, the Marvel stuff that Diamond Select Toys has going on, and there is so so much. Unforutunately, my favorite of which is something my eyes did not get to behold, so I pillaged the DST Facebook feed for the image…but…coming soon from Diamond Select Toys under the Marvel banner:
