By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 4, 2012

Banks for the memories!  Diamond Select Toys sent along a news release today with their new Comic-Con 2012 exclusives, including a nifty bank.  More after the jump.


This R2-R9 bank is a redeco of the R2-D2 bank, which itself is basically a 1:4 scale replica of the droid from the movie.  Here's what Diamond had to say about him:

Star Wars R2-R9 Vinyl Bank
From Diamond Select Toys' popular line of Star Wars banks comes a new, exclusive droid! Only available at SDCC, this 10-inch vinyl bank of R2-R9 from "Episode I: The Phantom Menace" has a slot in the back for storing your loose change, not to mention your secret battle plans. Best of all, this 1/4 scale figure fits in perfectly with your Ultimate Quarter Scale action figure collection! Available from Diamond Comic Distributors (Booth #2401) and Diamond Select Toys (#2607).

Diamond didn't announce any other Star Wars exclusives, but will be selling items from The Amazing Spider-Man movie as well as their updated take on the classic toy line Battle Beasts, which will include a pair of exclusive figures and a unique comic book.
