And did we mention interchangeable parts? In addition to his basic pair of open hands, Spider-Man comes with three bonus sets – fists, grabbing hands and web-shooting hands. He also comes with an interchangeable Peter Parker head, a camera accessory that hangs on his shoulder, and a bunched-up Spider-Man mask that he can hold in his grabbing hand! All of this comes packaged in slimmed-down, display-ready Marvel Select packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference.
Pre-orders will open on January 12, 2016, exclusively at marvelshop.com, and then further pre-orders will open on February 1 at disneystore.com and disneystore.eu. The figures will ship to customers and to Disney Store locations on or before February 29, 2016.

Hawkeye Takes Aim With a New Marvel Select Action Figure at Marvelshop.com!

image

Clint Barton is often dismissed as “the guy with the bow and arrows,” but as one of the few non-powered members of the Avengers, he stands alongside super-soldiers, armored knights and living gods. To honor a man who regularly fights above his weight class, Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have teamed up to create an exclusive, all-new figure of the avenging archer, Hawkeye! 

image

Wearing his newer Marvel NOW! outfit, Avenging Hawkeye comes with his bow, arrows, crossbow pistol, alternate hand, alternate bandaged head and his canine companion Lucky. Lucky was introduced in the 2012 Hawkeye comic series, by Matt Fraction and David Aja, in which Hawkeye dealt with street-level crime in and around his New York City neighborhood.

image

This new Hawkeye figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and stands 7 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Like all Marvel Select action figures, he comes packaged in display-ready packaging with comic artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

image

image

Look for the figure to make its debut exclusively on marvelshop.com on March 23rd, and to arrive in Disney Stores and ondisneystore.com by April 6.

The Disney Store Rings Out the Year with Three Marvel Select Exclusives!

https://i0.wp.com/www.artasylum.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/DisneyLizard_boxfront.jpg?w=640

Marvel toy collectors just got another reason to put the nearest Disney Store in their GPS. After partnering with Diamond Select Toys on four exclusive Marvel Select Avengers figures and two exclusive Amazing Spider-Man movie figures, the Disney Store has teamed up with DST yet again, to deliver three new Marvel Select figures that collectors will be dying to own!

The first figure (available now) is the Savage Hulk, a new, modern Hulk based on artist Marc Silvestri’s rendering of the character in recent issues of the Incredible Hulk from Marvel Comics. Depicting a more intelligent version of the Hulk than previous Select offerings, this figure was sculpted by frequent Marvel Select contributor Jean St. Jean, and stands over 9 inches tall with 16 points of articulation.

The next figure is the Lizard, the longtime foe of Spider-Man and his opponent in this past summer’s Amazing Spider-Man movie. While the Marvel Select line has given us the Lizard as he appeared in the film, this all-new sculpt by Gabriel Marquez (who did MS Magneto) is the line’s first rendering of Dr. Curt Connors based on his classic comic-book appearance. Sporting 16 points of articulation, including double-jointed knees, he stands over 8 inches tall (when not crouching to attack an innocent human) and comes with a New York City street display base.

The third new Marvel Select figure is Flash Thompson as Venom! Flash Thompson is not only the latest host to wear the Venom symbiote, he’s also the one with the most training. A decorated soldier before he lost his legs in the Middle East, Flash uses the Venom suit to undertake dangerous missions for the government, and to complete his missing limbs. This 7-inch figure, also by St. Jean, comes with two weapons and 16 points of articulation and comes packaged with a wreckage-strewn display base.

All of these figures come packaged in the famous bookshelf-ready Select packaging, but for those of you just starting your Marvel Select collection, both the Lizard and Venom will also come packaged in the first-ever Marvel Select box set! The Spider-Man: Fearsome Foes box set includes Spider-Man, Lizard, Venom and the Green Goblin, and this set, like the individual figures, is only available at the Disney Store, as well as at marvelstore.com and disneystore.com. Look for them this holiday season!
