I Want That: Comic-Con 2014 Toys
It's that time again folks; Comic-Con International in San Diego is almost here to cover entertainment elements across virtually all genres. It's sure to be another fantastic year for the show. One of my favorite aspects of Comic-con has to be the toys; so many toys!
Diamond Select Toys will be showcasing some cool new products and selling some great exclusives so if you're venturing to the SDCC, they will be hanging out at Booth 2607. Below are some notable entries from them that I will be putting into this year's Christmas wish list including Cocknocker!
Take a look:
Burning Godzilla Vinyl Bust Bank
Godzilla is more than just a giant lizard – he's also a walking nuclear reactor! This new, limited-edition vinyl bank of the King of All Monsters depicts him as he appeared in 1995's Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, when his atomic heart began to overheat. With an all-new black-and-orange color scheme, this 8-inch bust bank features collectible-quailty paint applications, as well as a coin slot on his back and an access door in the base. Limited to 1000 pieces. Packaged in a clear polybag. Sculpted by Gentle Giant!
Walking Dead Minimates Days Gone Bye B&W
The Walking Dead has reached its 125th issue, and is still one of the top-selling comic books in America! DST is commemorating the anniversary with a four-pack of key characters and zombies as they appeared in the very first story arc, "Days Gone Bye." Rick, Shane, Glenn and a zombie all appear for the first time in glorious black-and-white, just like the comic book!

Marvel Minimates X-Men Days of Future Past
The newest X-Men movie is blowing minds and setting records with its time-travel storyline, and now DST is going back in time to 1981! That's when the original Days of Future Past story line came out in Uncanny X-Men, and this 4-pack of Minimates captures four of the storyline's most important characters! Future Wolverine, Future Kitty Pryde, Mystique and a Future Sentinel each stand 2 inches tall and feature interchangeable parts and accessories. Limited to 3,000 pieces. Packaged in a full-color window box. Designed by Art Asylum!
Sin City Select Bloody Marv
With a new line of figures based on the groundbreaking film hitting stores soon, DST is pleased to present their limited-edition exclusive Sin City figure for SDCC: Bloody Marv!

World Debut: Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back Cocknocker Retro Action Figure
Rescued from the DST warehouse and being sold for the first time anywhere, Cock-Knocker is making his debut at SDCC!

In scale to the other two releases in the line, Bluntman and Chronic themselves, Cock-Knocker has one giant fist and his energy sword, and is the missing piece in any Bluntfan's retro-style figure collection! Packaged in resealable clamshell packaging with full color artwork.
