Exclusive Marvel Select Groot Figure Review & Photos

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…

Toy Fair 2017: DST Doctor Strange & Civil War Movie Statues!

Diamond Select Toys Doctor Strange Movie Statue Toy Fair 2017

I definitely surprised a lot of folks–including myself–when I awarded my “Best of New York Toy Fair 2017” award to Diamond Select Toys. While I’ve always loved DST’s Marvel Select and Minimates figures, what really locked the award for them was neither of those long-running lines, though–it was their unexpectedly amazing showing of Marvel statues! And three statues that mystified me perhaps more than anything else at the 2017 Toy Fair were Diamond’s resin Marvel Milestones Doctor Strange and Civil War movie statues…

Earlier today I discussed the Marvel Select Netflix Daredevil and Spider-Gwen figures that we weren’t expecting to see debut at New York Toy Fair 2017 over the weekend, and now it’s time to take a look at the two figures we absolutely were expecting to see premiere at the show: Marvel Select Spider-Man Homecoming costume and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star-Lord!

Toy Fair 2017: Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy Statues!

Marvel Gallery Gamora Rocket Raccoon Statue

Ordinarily I don’t like to throw around arbitrary awards like “Best in the Show” for the various conventions and events where collectibles companies show off their latest products, but there was one company at New York Toy Fair 2017 that really “wow”-ed me like never before, and that was Diamond Select Toys.
