We've been singing the praises of Diamond Select Toys' Marvel Select line for a while now. It seems with each new release, their take on Marvel Comics' most influential characters just keep getting better and better in sculpting, paint, and articulation. This year, the Marvel Select line also shares some it's releases with not one, but two upcoming movies: "The Avengers" and "The Amazing Spider-Man"! During Toy Fair 2012, we got a good look at the upcoming figures and were blown away by what we saw-- and now it's your turn!

Read on for looks at each of the Marvel Select offerings, starting with a couple of toys based on "The Avengers".

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Reveals G.I. Joe Retaliation Toys

This June, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" blasts its way into theaters as the battle between the Joes and Cobra continues in what is sure to be (according to what we've seen thus far in the trailers) a ninja-filled extravaganza! Although we previously showed you the first wave of Retaliation-based figures, during Toy Fair 2012 we were treated to reveals all the way through wave 5! We were lucky enough to interview Daryl DePriest  (in the video above) about the upcoming Joe line to find out what fans can expect to be seeing on the shelves from Hasbro.

Yes, that's Ray Stevenson, who plays Firefly in the upcoming film. Read on for info and even more photos of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation toy reveals!

Square Enix' booth during Toy Fair 2012 was sparse, but featured some of the coolest action figures around. Their Play Arts Kai lineup has become deeper with each new license and their display proved that point with new figures from God of War, Uncharted, and even debuted prototypes of new figures from Mass Effect 3! That's right, Shepard is there in all his heroic glory-- although a little gray. These are just the prototypes, so only some gray has been added to better bring out the detailing of the sculpts, but are all also still pending licensor approval. Luckily, thanks to Square Enix' incredible sculpting, they probably won't have much trouble getting these pushed through.

Every year, there are a few things on our radar that build our anticipation for Toy Fair. One of those things is always the new Masters of the Universe Classics reveals during Mattel's Collector Press event! While this year might have not caused our jaws to drop to the floor, the coolness of new figures can't be denied. A lot of these figures have been previously shown during the many, many conventions of 2011, but there were a few all-new showings during Toy Fair 2012 including the 30th Anniversary creation of DC Comic's Geoff Johns: Sir Laserlot! Yes, you read that correctly.

Read on for photos of all the figures at the display along with their currently projected release dates straight from the Matty Collector website!

Going into Toy Fair 2012, we fully expected a ton of new zombie-related merchandise. With the currently pop culture popularity off those brain-eating corpses, there's just no stopping their undead merchandising machine! however, JAKKS Pacific managed to turn our heads thanks to a new line of toys that have a special nostalgic quality to us 80's babies. The S.L.U.G. (Scary Little Ugly Guys) Zombies are an homage of sorts to the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. line of tiny, single-colored wrestlers. The S.L.U.G.s are a little larger than their distant cousins, but have that same appeal thanks to some tremendous (and hilarious) sculpts.

Before "The Amazing Spider-Man" swings into theaters this July, Hasbro will be making sure the toy aisles are loaded with all manner of plaything based on the film! During Toy Fair 2012, Hasbro got permission to show the 6" version of the Lizard in all his green-hued glory during their Media Event! Not relegated to only a figure, we were also treated to other toys in the line sporting his wicked visage, including a mask that can make anyone look like an unstable scientist who let their obsessions drive them over the edge! Like the current Spider-man toy line, Hasbro has directed most of this one towards the kiddos, but there are still some pieces that adults will want to grab.
