Diamond Select’s flagship action figure line, Marvel Select, has been around for 11 years, and in that time they’ve put out some pretty good-looking toys. But while the toys look good on their own, once you add dynamic poses, dramatic lighting and realistic environments, they look incredible! To honor the amateur photographers who make the Marvel Select line look even better with their amazing pictures, DST is holding a photo contest specifically for the Marvel Select line!
Diamond Select Toys has a new Wolverine action figure coming to market based on The Wolverine movie. Take the jump for another great gallery of the figure in action.
More toys found on display for NECA today. This time it’s their 1/4 scale action figures, showing off a pair of Batmen that were seen at Toy Fair earlier this year. The other three are new for San Diego though. All five figures stand around 18 inches tall and feature unique accessories and, at least for those what need to, some cloth accessories. So take the jump to have a look at what NECA has in store.

This summer has been tremendously successful for back issue purchases, and one of our recent hauls at the store (Gatekeeper Hobbies, Huntoon & Gage, Topeka! Ask us about our Evel Knievel #1) included a large collection of promotional and freebie comics, books that are rare even by comic print-run standards. Because of the sheer number of books we’ve picked up, I was ready to toss this book in the 3 For A Dollar bin, but fortunately I consulted my pricing guide first, and was nearly knocked off of my chair. Righting myself before causing a massive comic-slide, I knew without a doubt that the adventures of Big Jim, the leader of the P.A.C.K. (VROOM!) were destined to be enshrined in my collection and that Jim himself was the hero written of in obscure prophecy, the only man fit to complete the mighty Retro Review trinity alongside Skateman and Big Daddy Cool. Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
