It’s almost that time of year again… the time of year when Diamond Select Toys hops on a plane across the country to attend the biggest pop culture convention in America! San Diego’s Comic-Con International 2012 will run from July 12-15, and DST will have a ton of fun events for you to attend, including a Minimates panel, a Battle Beasts signing, our Build-a-Minimate station, and some cool, cool giveaways. But this year will also be a huge year for DST’s exclusive toys!
