2018’s Toy Fair is wrapping up here in New York City, and Metal Insider was there to cover it. Today we focus on two new incredibly detailed King Diamond items coming out in the coming weeks – and these look great!
The King Diamond 3 3/4″ action figure by Super 7
Super 7, makers of the extremely popular Alien 3 3/4″ action figure line, showed us their latest creation and it’s none other than the first ever King Diamond action figure! This is part of their ReAction line, which points to a more retro 80’s look and feel. And, of course, we’re getting King Diamond from the 80’s in this line. The figure is currently in pre-production and as can be seen, is not quite completed yet. Note that detail on King’s necklaces and gloves. And look at that hair!! King comes with his Melissa microphone accessory, which, I should note will NOT be grey as seen in the photos, but rather a dirty bone color. Paint color is still being developed as well as the final color and position of the mic. No doubt the figure and the card, with its clearly visible inverted cross, will turn some heads.You’ll be able to find King Diamond in about 4-6 weeks at specialty retailers and online. This is the same company that brought us the Iron Maiden 3 3/4″ line and that first wave sold out immediately so if you want to get Mr. Diamond, place your order early.
The King Diamond Statue – Rock Iconz
I stopped by the Knuckle Bonz booth to check out the King Diamond Rock Iconz statute. This design features a slightly older, more recent version of King. Holding his lantern (who is he looking for…?) and Melissa, King comes highly detailed right down to the adornments on his boots and wedding ring! King Diamond is limited to 1777 statues and then they’re gone. It releases on the 7th day of July and is limited to those who received one of the thirteen invitations. Ok, ok, obviously, I made that last part up. The figure releases in March and can be pre-ordered here – right now. If you pre-order now, you are automatically entered to win one of 77 statues actually signed by King himself!
