Retailer Toys’R’Us may have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the States but that doesn’t mean that they’re not going down fighting. The company will be representing at next weekend’s New York Comic Con (Javits Convention Center, Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th October 2017), celebrating the launch of a new store exclusive DC Vinimates line from Diamond Select Toys with a cracking Retro Starfire figure, available at their booth, #110.
The initial Series 1 of the DC Vinimates range heads to stores shortly, with comic-style versions of Batman, Harley Quinn and Hal Jordan hitting shelves. In addition to this first run, Toys’R’Us will be stocking a selection of TEEN TITANS GO! figures (including Blackfire as part of this first Series, and Nibor the Reverse-Robin released as part of Series 2 in Early 2018) – to celebrate this launch, NYCC will see the release of this RETRO STARFIRE figure.
Based on her retro appearance in the episode “Baby Hands” and inspired by her classic comic book appearance, the big-haired figure stands 4-inches tall and strikes a pose straight from the movie! Packaged in a full-color window box, the figure will be available for purchase at Toys’R’Us booth #110 throughout the New York Comic Con weekend.
No word yet on the availability of the figure, or how much it’ll sell for, but with the upcoming live action TITANS series coming for DC’s Digital Service and Starfire already cast, expect the interest and excitement for this character to explode in the coming months.
Just to whet your appetite for the DC Vinimates line, here’s a preview of the aforementioned Blackfire and Nibor figures, coming soon:
