Celebration VI: Diamond Select's Two Exclusive Star Wars Banks

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 30, 2012

Diamond Select Toys wrote in to share news of not one, but two exclusives!  Boba Fett and R2-Q5 banks are coming, and the quality of these things is usually pretty top-notch.  Want to know more about the exclusives?  Click through, and write down that booth #632 is the booth!

Our pal Zach Oat for Diamond Select Toys writes:

"First up, DST will offer a limited-edition variant of their 9-inch Boba Fett vinyl bust bank. While the regular release utilizes Fett's color scheme from "Return of the Jedi," this exclusive edition features paint apps based on Fett's appearance in "The Empire Strikes Back." The bank will be limited to 250 pieces, and at only $20 it will likely move as fast as R2-R9 did at San Diego Comic-Con, so make the Kessel Run to booth 632 as soon as you arrive! 

"In addition, DST will offer a brand-new Astromech droid exclusively at Celebration VI that will be the must-own item of the convention: R2-Q5. Only 100 of this all-black Imperial Droid unit have been produced, making it one of DST's rarest vinyl Star Wars banks ever! And all for the low price of $20! Of all the exclusives at the show, this one will definitely go the fastest, so make the Diamond Select Toys booth (#632) your first stop at the con!"


I've got a couple of the older Diamond banks myself and while I don't use them for change, they're really nice-- particularly at the price.  If you're in Orlando, do check them out.
