In their quest to get new and unique products into the hands of collectors, Diamond Select Toys has frequently teamed up with retailer Action Figure Xpress on exclusive items that expand on DST’s existing lines in very exciting ways. And at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego (July 9-12, 2015), AFX will offer two new horror collectibles developed by DST.
Read on to see a pair of items that should be of special interest to Alien/Predator fans. You can pre-order from the AFX store at actionfigurexpress.com and arrange to pick it up at the SDCC, or have it sent straight to your home after the show.
