Diamond strikes a new deal

Diamond Distributors has struck a deal with manufacturers to offer a case pack with one of each figure in the wave/series exclusively to Specialty Retailers. This means that your Local Comic Shop or your favorite On-line Specialty Retailer will be able to order a case for you from Diamond Previews with one of each figure offered in a series. This is being done to help collectors to have an option besides the big retailers and to help boost sales for the Specialty Retailers. One of the companies mentioned as participating was Mattel, which will be offering the 7th wave of DC Universe Classics as a full set in this month in Previews. This is great news for those of us who are having difficulty finding these at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys ‘r Us. Unfortunately for me, I just canceled my subscription at my comic shop… last week. I may be tempted to return with this news. I am one of the people, in an apparently growing majority, who are tiring of the hunt for figures and usually coming home empty-handed.
