Ordinarily I try to get in-hand photos of the latest Marvel Select figures posted as soon as the figures ship out to comic book stores, but I was foiled twice this month–first by my comic shop getting the Lady Deadpool Select in late, and then by my hosting company botching the transfer to the new server for the site. But now that both problems have been remedied, here’s some in-hand photos to help give those thinking of ordering Marvel Select Lady Deadpool online a better idea of how the final figure turned out…

At this point, we can feel pretty confident that every new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that comes out will be accompanied by at least one Marvel Select action figure, as every single MCU movie since Avengers–except the first Guardians of the Galaxy–has.

Close-Up of Marvel Select Groot Toy Head

Because I basically eat, drink and sleep toys, I’m immersed in collecting culture pretty much 24/7. And as such, sometimes other collectors who I think are being overly demanding can grate on my nerves just a little bit. This was the case when the exclusive Marvel Select Groot figure went up for order online earlier this month and a number of folks complained he was a ripoff because he didn’t come with a free Rocket Raccoon figure. And so, now that my Groot Marvel Select figure has arrived, let’s take a look and see whether this figure is a good value or not…

Marvel Select Spider-Gwen Figure Revealed

I apologize for the lack of updates yesterday, as a combination of a ton of appointments at the New York Toy Fair 2017, massive server downtime because of the heavy traffic generated by the event and traveling back to New England from New York City with a massive migraine limited my posting capabilities temporarily.

Marvel Select Destroyer Odin Figure Released & Photos!

Marvel Select The Destroyer Odin Figure Released

The postal service is infuriatingly slow delivering my latest Diamond Select Toys figure (grumble grumble), so that meant I had to take a field trip down to the mall this week to at least take packaged photos of the first Marvel Select figure to arrive this year! He may not be in the upper-echelon of most beloved Marvel villains, but I’ve seen firsthand now just how drop-dead gorgeous and amazing this Marvel Select Destroyer Odin figure is…
