On November 19, 2016, comic book shops across North America will take part in Local Comic Shop Day®, celebrating independently-owned comic book retailers everywhere. Participating stores have access to exclusive products, and this year Diamond Select Toys is pleased to announce that they have created an item exclusively for Local Comic Shop Day® retailers: The Lost in Space Anti-Matter B9 Vinimate!
Part of the 4-inch Vinimates vinyl figure line, this variant version of B9 is sculpted in the Minimates mini-figure style, with an exclusive black-and-white paint job! This color scheme is based on the famous Lost in Space episode, “The Anti-Matter Man,” in which the robot B9 travels to an anti-matter universe and meets his cold-hearted anti-matter counterpart. The vinyl figure comes packaged in a full-color window box with a “Local Comic Shop Day®” logo sticker.
Anti-Matter B9 will go on sale on November 19, and only storefront retailers participating in Local Comic Shop Day® will have the option of ordering this exclusive variant. A list of participating retailers will be available next month on www.localcomicshopday.com, but check with your local store to see if they will be joining the festivities.
