Diamond Select Toys has announced its newest license, Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster X-Men: The Last Stand. Under an agreement from Marvel Entertainment, DST will start development and production of several collectible product lines based on the “X3″ feature film with a planned release date of spring 2006.
“The addition of ‘X-Men 3′ to DST’s licenses will give us the opportunity to bring classic X-Men characters to life with the likenesses of actors from the film. The X-Men products will be popular with fans of the comics and films alike,” Mike Leavey, Marketing Supervisor for Diamond Select remarked.
DST’s “X3″ line is expected to include statues, busts and Minimates. Gentle Giant Studios, who scanned the actors from the film, will complete the statues and busts which will feature the “X3″ actors’ likenesses for the first time. Line plan information and images will be available at the upcoming International Toy Fair.
