It has to be said that the Marvel Select line is one of the best action figure lines currently on the market. And the latest addition (out January 2013) is one of Spider-Man’s biggest foes Venom. It is a great sculpt and will come with multiple head variants including a McFarlane variant – which is […]

I am loving these oversized Marvel Select figures… but they really do announce them early – the newest in the line is Spider-Man villan – the Rhino! Available early 2013. Here is the official blurb… The Hulk. The Thing. The Abomination. The Juggernaut. Diamond Select Toys’ oversized Marvel Select action figures have been dazzling collectors […]

It has been a long wait… I previewed Marvel Select’s Abomination back in 2010 (here). I stumbled upon this when I was last at my LCS. There was joy in my heart as I saw it on the rack – the box was in good shape and when I lifted this figure for a close […]

It is hard to believe I previewed this in June of last year… Well it finally hit stores and I picked up one online. It arrived yesterday and I’ve had little time to inspect it but it is pretty awesome. I’ll need to hunt out The Juggernaut and The Thing for size comparisons – although […]

The Marvel Select line are hitting it out of the park with these larger characters… they’ve picked great looks to model the characters on.. and the chunkiness fits the articulation much more smoothly. The Abomination — the arguably the Hulk’s greatest foe looks great and I’ll definitely pick this up.

This is one of the best action figure sculpts of any character I think I’ve seen. I love this rendition of the Yancy St brawler, the ever-lovin’ blue eyed Thing. It looks like it was inspired by the amazing art Steve McNiven did on Marvel Knights 4. The first couple of arcs of this series were […]
