Welcome back my friends and might I add that it is so nice to see you here early in the AM. As previously reported, PiercingMetal is in attendance at the 2019 New York Comic Con and it’s our 10th Annual go round at this event. I’ve also suggested that those who are just joining us should be clicking HERE first so they can see all of the posts related to this massive happening. Picking up where we left off yesterday I present my final image from the Heavy Metal Magazine booth, a celebratory tome from the band Megadeth. This is a fantastic collectible for sure.
When PiercingMetal was wandering the halls of Javits for the annual Toy Fair convention, we didn’t see a single toy from the at the time upcoming film “Avengers: Endgame” but now that the film has opened to a limited audience in California (it opens for the rest of us tomorrow so shhhhhhh if you are one of the lucky people who has seen it), the folks at DST are revealing their latest line of the popular Minimates. Let’s take a look at the Official Press and some images.
The Press Release:
Avengers Assemble! The Endgame is upon us, and everyone is on the edge of their seat! We may not know what’s going to happen, but one thing’s for sure, when we come out of the movie we’re going to want some cool collectibles of our favorite characters! Luckily, new Avengers Endgame Minimates have just assembled in Walgreens stores and comic shops nationwide!
With the “Captain Marvel” film around the corner at this point, the reveal of more and more collectibles are hitting our inbox. Now its time to share the latest batch of Minimates from Diamond Select Toys. Check it out.

Greetings my fellow Pop Culture mavens, I am back with another exciting chapter from the 2018 New York Comic Con and this is still the Day Two visuals for those who are trying to keep track. I’ve hit Chapter Three from the second day and if you’ve missed any of the earlier stuff, please click HERE first because I want you to follow along like a regular series. I tend to refer to things I’ve witnessed and I don’t want you lost at all. As I am nearing the end of the Day Two coverage, there is going to be a lot more cosplayers coming into the visuals and I don’t always find myself chatty here but if you see anyone that you know, please be sure to paste a link to this article in a message to them so they can enjoy the spotlight too. Let’s go.
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:
Comic-Con International in San Diego is fast approaching, and Diamond Select Toys has a ton of new exclusive items they’ll be offering at the show!

Come by booth #2607 early, because all editions are limited, and they will not last long!
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.

This translucent rendering of the Enterprise is meant to replicate its fiery last flight down to the Genesis planet, after self-destructing in orbit. The ship measures approximately 14 inches long, and includes a display stand. It comes in commemorative window packaging. Limited to only 400 pieces. Does not contain electronics.
