Toy News: DST Unleashes C2E2 Plans & Exclusives!

With the dawn of a new decade comes another exciting year of comic book and pop culture fan gatherings - and 2010 is already shaping up to be one of the biggest and best convention seasons on record! With both the San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con events already on the schedule for July and October respectively, we're excited to announce our attendance at what is sure to be the largest and most extravagant convention in the Midwest - the first annual Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo - C2E2!

Operated by convention veterans Reed Exhibitions (of New York Comic Con fame) and housed in downtown Chicago's spacious McCormick Place, C2E2 is already shaping up to be one of the year's premier shows thanks to an all-star guest list, special event programming and a host of convention exclusives - including two from Diamond Select Toys!

DST's exclusive delivers two of the stars of this spring's upcoming blockbuster Iron Man 2 in Minimate form! The Iron Man 2 Stark Expo Minimates Two-Pack will only be available at this show and features Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark and Scarlett Johannson's Natalie Romanova as they appear during the fictional Stark Expo event. Each Minimate two-pack will retail at the show for $8.00.

A second convention exclusive will also be available through Action Figure Xpress in the form of the Iron Man 2 Battle Tactics Minimates Box Set. This con-only set includes battle damaged versions of both Iron Man and War Machine plus Racecar Tony Stark and the first-ever Iron Man 2 Nick Fury!

As always, DST will have personnel manning the booth to interact with fans and showcase upcoming releases - including a few surprises like our daily 2010 C2E2 Minimate giveaway! Stay tuned for more updates and programming announcements as this monumental geek event approaches!
