Ahoy Towelites, another week, another couple of great toys coming to you courtesy from our friends over at Diamond Select Toys. Today, we have two from Marvel Select and they include some of our favorite characters. First up, we have The Falcon, played wonderfully by Anthony Mackie in Captain America: Winter Solider. After that, everyone’s big, green, meanie, Savage Hulk. Check out pictures and more details on the figures below!
By now, collectors have picked up the Marvel Select action figure of Captain America, as he appears in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and hopefully they’re as happy with him as we are! Well, get ready, because Cap is about to get the ultimate wingman! It’s New Toy Day, and Diamond Select’s Marvel Select Movie Falcon figure hits comic shops and specialty stores this week, just in time for the Fourth of July!
Standing approximately 7.5 inches tall, Sam “The Falcon” Wilson features 16 points of articulation and a solid likeness of actor Anthony Mackie from the film. He also comes with a removable pair of wings, which slot into his backpack for flight mode, and a display base styled after the SHIELD helicarriers that appear in the movie. All of it comes packaged in the famous Select-style packaging, suitable for wall display or shelf storage, with character art on the side panel.
Since he was first introduced in 1962, the Incredible Hulk’s fame has grown by leaps and bounds. From the pages of his Marvel comic book, to the live-action TV series that made him a household name, to his defining role in Marvel’s The Avengers, the Hulk has grown from misunderstood monster to Hollywood hero. And now Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with marvelshop.com to grant fans early access to an exclusive Hulk action figure!
Currently, marvelshop.com will be the only place to order the Marvel Select Savage Hulk action figure, featuring an exclusive sculpt of the gamma-irradiated Avenger. The Savage Hulk figure wears a tattered outfit that harkens back to his origins, when nuclear scientist Dr. Bruce Banner was caught in an atomic blast and first transformed from a man into a monster.
Sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, who has previously sculpted figures of Hulk, Thor and Magneto for the Marvel Select line, this completely new figure stands approximately 9 3/4″ inches tall with 14 points of articulation. He will come packaged in the oversized Select-style blister card, perfect for in-package display, and with reference artwork on the spine for shelf storage.
After July 7, the Marvel Select Savage Hulk figure will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.[/box_light]
Marvelshop.com carries a wide assortment of Marvel Select action figures, including three other exclusive figures: the Marvel Select Winter Soldier action figure, based on his comic book appearance; the Marvel Select Unmasked Captain America figure, as he appears in Captain America: The Winter Soldier; and the Marvel Select Unmasked Spider-Man figure, as he appears in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
