San Diego is the city so nice they gave it one name and decided to stick with it. But for one week out of every year, it unofficially becomes known as “Geek Paradise!” As the team at Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum are all geeks themselves, they are happy to announce that they will once again be setting up a booth at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, July 24-27, and hosting two panels for their fans!
Come by booth #2607 to check out the newest products, pick up the various exclusives, and fill some holes in your collection from the DST store! Build your own Minimate at the Build-A-Minimate booth, and pick up posters of original Marvel, Sin City and Jay & Silent Bob Minimates artwork that will be handed out throughout the weekend. Then come to two panels spotlighting DST’s upcoming releases!
