I hate the bottle openers at the Major Spoilers HQ. They are general store end aisle grabs, and while they do the job (for the most part), they are plain and boring, and I don’t set them out when company comes over – which probably explains why everyone is so thirsty on game night. Diamond Select Toys has two new bottle openers that are now on the “Under Consideration” list, and just may find their wide mouths grabbing the next bottled beverage when company sits down on game night.
Diamond Select Toys is gearing up for their next convention, and it’s New York Comic-Con in the Art Asylum’s home town of New York City!

The October issue of Previews won’t reach comic shops until the end of this month, but retailers are already taking orders for all the new items from Diamond Select Toys! Early 2014 will bring a bunch of cool items, including a new Star Trek ship, two new Marvel Minimates box sets, two new Universal Monsters banks, two much-requested Marvel Select figures, a new Marvel bottle opener and our first-ever Tarot plush item! There’s something for everybody!
