Diamond Select Signs License for Pacific Rim Uprising Collectibles



Diamond Select Toys has locked down another licensing agreement for some pretty cool collectibles; and if you’re a Pacific Rim fan, you’ll want to read on for the details about the new Pacific Rim Uprising figures that are heading our way!

From the Press Release:
The 2017 blockbuster season has just started, but the countdown has already begun for one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018 – Pacific Rim Uprising from Legendary and Universal Pictures. In 2013’s Pacific Rim, director Guillermo del Toro unveiled the first chapter of this spectacular universe of monsters and mechs, in which human-piloted machines called Jaegers rise to defend humanity against gigantic otherworldly monsters called Kaijus. The long-awaited sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, takes the action to the next level with a sleek new generation of technologically advanced Jaeger mechs; a ferocious new breed of Kaiju monsters; and of course, a massive new line of toys and collectible merchandise from Diamond Select Toys!

Diamond Select Toys (DST) will offer a wide range of Pacific Rim Uprising products starting in 2018, including Select action figures, Minimates mini-figures, Vinimates vinyl figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, vinyl coin banks, replicas with lights and sound, and housewares. The movie will premiere in U.S. theaters on February 23, 2018; and DST plans to have the first products ship in time for the premiere.

“We’re incredibly excited to work on Pacific Rim Uprising, and we’re honored that Legendary came to us with this amazing opportunity to work on such a thrilling franchise property,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “The original film was an epic, visually enthralling work of art; and we’ve had a blast working with the new Jaeger and Kaiju designs, turning them into some of the most detailed products we’ve ever made!”

All of DST’s products are available through independent comic shops, specialty stores, and online toy retailers, with selected items also available at Toys”R”Us and toysrus.com. Certain styles and characters will be available at all locations, while some will be exclusive to specific retailers.

In addition to new Jaegers and Kaiju, Pacific Rim Uprising will also showcase exciting new characters, as actors John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad) join returning cast members Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman alongside some exciting new faces.

Produced by Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim Uprising will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight, original showrunner for “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix. DeKnight was also the creator of “Spartacus” on Starz and was previously a writer and director on both “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” Diamond Select Toys previously created products for “Marvel’s Daredevil” as well as for both “Buffy” and “Angel.”
