As a regular attendee of both the NY Comic Con and the Toy Fair events, I like showcasing some of the awesome things that fans can get that were revealed at these conventions. That said, there are also items that are exclusives to these events and with the Comic-Con International San Diego happening towards the end of July, I’ve decided to share the things that you will want to hunt for. Since there is a LOT to this press release I am going to keep my intro brief. Observe now the trophies from Diamond Select Toys.
The Press Release:

Star Trek USS Enterprise NCC-1701 “Final Flight” Starship: “My God, Bones… What have I done?” James T. Kirk spoke those words as he watched the U.S.S.

Visit Diamond Select Toys at booth #2607!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: We don’t get to this convention unfortunately so we shall NOT be able to partake in any of these awesome offerings. Should you be one of our more ardent site admirers with some philanthropy in mind we shall take the Batman statues and the comicbooks ;p – Seriously though, isn’t this some awesome stuff? I think so and if you are any kind of a collector you better to get to that booth nice and early in the day if you are hitting the San Diego con. As you see the supplies are limited and while you might notice numbers like thousands and such remember that there are about a hundred thousand wandering through this thing over the course of the four days. As I am made aware of more SDCC Exclusives I will do my best to bring them to your attention and until we get some more how about you tell me what you think of this batch of stuff down in the comments below.
