Updated: Jun 16, 2023

Diamond Select Toys are hosting its 2023 Showcase over 2 days across the 12th and 13th of April. The Day 1 reveals were headlined (for me anyway) with the announcement of Series 6 of their Lord of the Rings Select line. The next duo coming for release are Sauruman complete with Palantír and Samwise Gamgee who comes with his traveling pack, Sting, and the light of Elendir. The Series 6 figures are listed for release in late 2023 / early 2024.

The other Action Figure reveals for Day 1 included a pair of Darkwing Duck Select figures with Darkwing Duck himself and his nemesis Negaduck. There was no release date put on this pairing.

There was also confirmation of a 2nd Jean-Claude Van Damme figure in blue combat Gi coming to join the already announced Ring Attire Van Damme, This 2nd release is planned for Summer 2023.

You can watch the rest of the presentation below where they also take a look at already revealed figures such as Cobra Kai and Pacific Rim, as well as their Statue and Minimates lines.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
