Toy Fair 2017: Marvel Select Spider-Gwen & Netflix Daredevil Figures!

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 Spider-Gwen Figure Revealed 2017 Toy Fair

If it wasn’t for the phenomenon that was Deadpool, 2016 would have truly been the year of Spider-Gwen. Diamond Select Toys released no less than four different Spider-Gwen figures in 2016, including two Marvel Gallery statues, a Minimate and even a Premier Gallery statue (that is amazingly still available for close to half-price!).

But the one Spider-Gwen that was most requested from DST still eluded collectors–until she unexpectedly swung into Manhattan to make her debut at the 2017 New York Toy Fair this weekend! Gwen Stacy is among my favorite characters, so I was thrilled to see this on display at the show. Let’s take a look…

This is an instance where just an interchangeable head might not do, since Gwen actually has her hood down here as well as her mask off. It’s unclear if this was made just for the display or if we’ll get an actual interchangeable bust piece.

Side View of Spider-Gwen Select FigureMy photo of the unmasked Gwen Stacy head is super hi-res and larger than the actual toy, so the prototype looks a little rough here, but trust me on this: it looks great in person.

After having no Netflix Daredevil super-articulated action figures up until now, collectors are really going to be absolutely spoiled for choice with the Mezco ONE:12 Collective, Marvel Legends, Hot Toys and now Marvel Select Daredevil Netflix figures all being released later in 2017!

Along with a pair of batons, four interchangeable hands and a pretty good-looking Charlie Cox portrait Matt Murdock head, the DST Netflix Daredevil figure will also come with one of their trademark humongous, diorama-style display bases. As usual, collectors will be getting plenty for their money with this release!

2017 Toy Fair Diamond Select Toys Netflix Daredevil FigureThe Marvel Select Daredevil and Spider-Gwen figures are expected to be up for pre-order in the next couple months and should be released in the second half of 2017. I’ll post an update to the Marvel Toy News Twitter Feed and Facebook Page once each of the new figures go up for order. Both figures will retail for the usual Marvel Select figures price-point of $24.99 (or less for pre-orders from some retailers).

What do you think of the two surprise Diamond Select Toys Marvel figures revealed at the 2017 Toy Fair, Marvel collectors? Were these two hugely-demanded characters worth the wait? Are these the versions of Netflix Daredevil and Spider-Gwen that you want in your 6″-7″ displays, or are you opting for releases from other companies?

  1. I’m pretty sure that Gwen won’t have an interchangeable bust, I’m pretty sure that’s just for the display.

    • We’ll have to see. DST has never displayed an unmasked head with an alternate bust before so I’m assuming it’s an add-on for this specific figure, but there was so much at the booth that I didn’t think to ask.

      • my best guess would be that they only used the bust to support the alternate hood, since i can’t see any changes to the bust that would justify the extra piece.

        • Exactly, the hoods look like they are sculpted on the busts so changing the heads won’t work if the hoods are fixed.

  2. the suit on daredevil is the updated one from season two, but he has the mask from the earlier episodes, that mask went with the season 1 suit not the updated one, they should have included the updated mask as a different head sculpt
