PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2013: Day 2 – Part 4

Hello my wonderful readers of the Official Blog for PiercingMetal.com you have arrived at our continuing presentation of images and thoughts from this year’s NY Comic Con. I’m now four chapters in for the second day of the convention with plenty more to go in case you are just joining us. Not much else to say so let’s get right on into it. I’ll begin this chapter with a menacing pair of Mandalorian Soldiers. They surely mean business so no jokes if you find yourself in their company my friends.

If you’ve read any of our Toy Fair coverages you know that we always make sure to set up an appointment with the Diamond Select Toys people so we can see what is new and hot in the action figure department. They had a booth set up at the Convention and of course this time around it was a retail thing so the fans could purchase anything that they saw on display. Here are a few shots from their booth.  I am so glad that I stopped collecting action figures because these are amazing offerings.
