They say that good things come to those who wait. And if you were a fan of the movie version of The Falcon in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in the spring, you’ve definitely had to wait for a quality action figure to be released. Hasbro missed the boat with no Marvel Legends Falcon figure and a mediocre 4″ Falcon, and the Hot Toys Falcon won’t be released until 2015. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel–an outstanding rendition of Anothony Mackie as the Falcon has now come home! The Marvel Select Falcon figure has now been released and is for sale online and in stores!
I ordered my Marvel Select Captain America The Winter Soldier Falcon figure online, so I’m going to have to wait a few days for my order to arrive. But as usual, I just couldn’t wait to check out the production version of The Falcon in person, so I went off in search of him at my local comic book stores.
If I had any concerns that the beautiful Diamond Select Toys Falcon action figure I saw at New York Toy Fair 2014 would look just as good on the production copies, those fears vanished when I saw the Marvel Select The Falcon action figure in the store.
As they should be, Falcon’s wings are enormous–each wing is about the same length as the whole Falcon Marvel Select action figure itself! And the camouflage pattern on the Falcon’s pants came out looking outstanding–no paint flaws or misapplied lines whatsoever on the copy I saw up-close in the store. As we’ve come to expect from Diamond Select Toys, this is one stellar movie-based Marvel Select action figure.
As with most Marvel Select movie figures in the last year or two, The Falcon Marvel Select action figure has been a big hit and pre-sold out from most of the usual online retailers. BigBadToyStore and Entertainment Earth have both been sold out of Marvel Select The Falcon figure pre-orders for months, although a decent amount of third-party sellers still have Falcon available for about MSRP (for now). If you want Falcon, I’d highly advise getting him now–DST does not reissue movie figures, and their prices tend to skyrocket on the aftermarket once they’re fully sold out.
Now that you’ve seen the final finished product, what do you think of the 7″ Marvel Select Falcon action figure, Marvel collectors? Is this the Falcon that you’re looking for for your Marvel collection, or does this excellent representation of The Falcon not in line with what you’re looking for?
