Diamond Select Toys continues to feed my Jay & Silent Bob obsession.

Ever since Clerks came out in 1994, I have been a huge fan of Kevin Smith and especially the characters of Jay and Silent Bob. For the next 26 years, I followed these characters and laughed at all their appearances. When I heard that Jay and Silent Bob figures were coming out, Zach Oat at Diamond Select, who knows me so well, that he said he had me covered! Zach knows me so well!

This is the 4th time that Diamond Select has given us Jay and Silent Bob figures and I for one couldn’t be happier. These versions are based on the new movie Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. So much, that Silent Bob is a lot slimmer than he previously was, because of all the weight Kevin Smith lost. 

Designed by Eamon O’Donoghue, sculpted by Patrick Piggott, these 2 figures look like they jumped right off the screen. They are very impressive sculpt, with lots of nice detail. The paint apps are nice and clean. The figures have all the points of articulation you expect from the Select series.

The figures comes with a lot of accessories too. Jay comes with a mini-Jay figure, a Mooby cup, his dealer’s license, a marijuana plant,  and a blunt. Jay also comes with and an extra set of hands. Silent Bob comes with a mini-Silent Bob figure, his dealer’s license, a cell skull, and of course a blunt. And he also comes with an extra set of hands.

Like I said, I’m a huge Jay and Silent Bob fan. Bordering on stalker. But I seriously love these figures.

Bottom line, these are a great addition for your collection and must needed for your Jay and Silent Bob fans.

Many thanks to Diamond Select Toys for letting us check this out!
