Toy Fair 2017 DST Marvel Statues: Thor! Psylocke! Spider-Gwen!

Toy Fair 2017 Marvel Premier Collection Psylocke Statue

At this point, I am almost well and truly out of new product reveals to talk about from New York Toy Fair 2017. But one company that I still have more photos of new toys and statues to talk about for is Diamond Select Toys! Not only did DST bring along their glorious 21″ Marvel Milestones Battle Armor Thor statue to the show, but they also premiered new resin statues of Psylocke, Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Gwen!

Last week I talked about the Marvel Select Groot figure that surpassed all expectations, and this week let’s take a look at the Guardians of the Galaxy team leader.

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 Marvel Gallery Black Panther & Falcon Captain America!

Marvel Gallery Sam Wilson Captain America Statue Toy Fair 2017

Last week I discussed the Diamond Select Toys Marvel Gallery Netflix statues and Guardians of the Galaxy statues. But of course, DST isn’t abandoning the line’s roots. And so, also on display at the New York Toy Fair 2017 were new comics-based Marvel Gallery Sam Wilson Captain America (Falcon), Miles Morales Spider-Man and more! (Oh, and there was also an MCU Black Panther. Which, by the way, looks glorious…)

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…

Toy Fair 2017: Marvel Gallery Netflix Daredevil Statues! Elektra!

Toy Fair Netflix Punisher Marvel Gallery Statue Close-Up

When Diamond Select Toys revealed and opened pre-orders for their Marvel Gallery Netflix Punisher statue last week, I wondered if we might get lucky enough to see Daredevil himself previewed at the New York Toy Fair 2017 or if that would be too much to hope for. Well, not only did DST meet my desire at the show, but they did me one better by showing off their lineup of Marvel Gallery Netflix, Daredevil, Luke Cage and Elektra statues!

Toy Fair: Marvel Select Spider-Man Homecoming & Star-Lord Figures!

Close-Up of Marvel Select Homecoming Spider-Man Movie Figure

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! DST is one of the last companies to reveal their interpretations of these characters, so I was worried they might be overshadowed–but these are two Marvel Select movie figures that absolutely do not disappoint…

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. Not only did Diamond Select bring surprise additions to their long-running Marvel Select series, but they also debuted over a dozen new Marvel statues at the show and really cemented themselves as a force in the Marvel statue world. And among those new reveals were their first-ever MCU PVC statues: the Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy statues!

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. But I’m home now and ready to tackle the 2017 Toy Fair in some depth–beginning with coverage of some figures folks have been really and truly waiting for: the Marvel Select Spider-Gwen and Netflix Daredevil figures have now been revealed!

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…
