Toy Fair 2012: DST's Marvel Select Toys

Diamond Select Toys have been releasing ever more amazing figures in their Marvel Select line. While the standard figures have been seeing added articulation and larger character selection, it's the oversized figures that really blow away the competition. The heavy-weight figures now have another to add to their ranks with the announcement of Spider-Man's foe, and Sinister Six-alumni, the Rhino! He's not scheduled for release until early next year, but we're lucky enough to be bringing you an early first look at this behemoth!

Toy Fair 2012: DST's Marvel Minimates

Remember when Wolverine got impregnated by the Brood and then almost turned into one before his healing factor kicked in? No? Well, then you're missing out on some damn fine storytelling! Forget all about the X-Men fighting the Avengers, cause there was a time when things were all about space, and aliens... and Dazzler! We put the blame solely on Professor X spending all of his free time hooking up with Shair War Queens instead of teaching his students to stand up for themselves Magneto-style.Well, now you can relive those Ridley Scott moments in the privacy of your own home, (and behind locked doors if you're way more into it than the law will allow) with wave #47 of Diamond Select Toys' Marvel Minimates! We hate Longshot with a passion, so you can guess who is gonna fall first!

Toy Fair 2012: Diamond Select Scares Up Some Monsters

Halloween has been synonymous with "candy", but Diamond Select Toys is looking to change that to "toys" with the third series of their Universal Monsters figures! This go-around, we'll be seeing the resurrections of the Phantom of the Opera, The invisible Man, and the Metaluna Mutant whose design is still one of our favorites in the history of cinema! Our favorite part? The Phantom comes packaged with his organ, so now all of our figures can awkwardly take turns at the keys whenever we play "Awkward Family Gathering". Yay!

"The Avengers" is so close to release, we can almost taste it! Oddly enough, it has a very metallic tinge coupled with a carbon-- chalk that up to the explosions. Anyway, since filming first began, rumors of an alien invasion in the film have been all over the internet and this was only compounded a million-fold with the release of this year's Super Bowl ad. From Skrulls to Chitari, fans have been debating what the invading force is supposed to be. This year's Toy Fair was no help in the matter as every toy company involved with the franchise kept these warriors under wraps-- and in Diamond Select Toys case, small dimly-lit & mirrored boxes. Finally as the film has begun premiering to rave reviews and the fervor for "The Avengers" merchandise is heating up, Loki's Army has been revealed. The DST toys anyway, not their true identities. For that you'll have to wait until May 4th... unless some jerk spoils it on Twitter. Read More...

DST has been hinting at some type of Battle Beasts goodness since 2010, and it looks like the wait is finally over!

Toy Fair 2012: Diamond Select Toys "The Amazing Spider-Man" line

During Toy Fair 2012, we got to see all of the offerings from Diamond Select Toys. Among the highlights were the incredible busts and statue based on this year's upcoming film "The Amazing Spider-Man"! The Lizard is particularly striking with his fully outstretched arms. Speaking of which, we really dig that the entire upper bodies of the characters have been incorporated into the busts and not just the head and chest. With quality this high, we hope DST returns to high-end collectibles full-time!

Toy Fair 2012: Diamond Select Minimates

Diamond Select Toys' Minimates have slowly become a collecting obsession around here and it doesn't look like that's gonna change anytime soon now that they're set to release miniaturized versions of our favorite characters from Image Comics' The Walking Dead! The first set sees Rick Grimes and Dale facing off against four different zombies-- each tiny, and in a different state of decay! Being Minimates, these will not only fit in scale-wise with the other releases from Marvel, etc., but can also share parts. That means all of our superhero Minimates are now at risk of the zombie outbreak! The Walking Dead Comic Series Minimates are planned for September, so we should have them stuffed into our pockets in time to enjoy the Halloween season.

Hank Pym, for a smart guy you sure are dumb. Creating the Ultron A.I. has been a recurring nightmare for the Avengers in practically every incarnation with no end in sight. This has been culminating recently in Marvel Comics' Avengers storylines that claim Ultron will one day succeed in subjugating the Earth to his will, and now the evil robot can put the hurt on your action figure collection thanks to this latest release from Diamond Select Toys! This classic version of Ultron in their amazing Marvel Select line can be viewed as prequel figure to the, recently released, Disney Store-exclusive Avengers figures that included an arrow-filled Ultron as part of Hawkeye's and Black Widow's bases.

Okay, so this one picture of Hawkeye from The Avengers is all we've got from the upcoming Diamond Select Toys release, but we thought you all you'd enjoy a glimpse of the heroic archer. What a great looking figure! With DST using the ball-joint torso articulation, we've been loving their Marvel Select figures more and more. Also on this figure, you'll notice the hinged wrists which should allow him to be posed shooting his box. Read on for all the info thus far on Jeremy Renner's alter-ego:
