2017 was the year that Diamond Select really went big.  Their Gallery and Premiere Collection statue lines exploded with amazing statues of unforgettable characters.  Their Select line of figures also continued to pump out fantastic figures.  Going back through our catalog of reviews for 2017, we had a great look at the Guardians of the Galaxy Select figures, and nowhere near as much else of the releases in 2017 as we would have liked.  Stellar figures like Homecoming Spider-Man, Planet Hulk Hulk, and Lady Deadpool.  It was because of this abbreviated look at the line, we are going to include our Select favorite here among a few of our favorite Diamond Select Toys statues for the year.   read more

Diamond Select Toys: Doctor Strange Gallery Statue PVC

Well darn it if Spider-Man and Thanos didn’t hook me on Diamond Select Toys statues.  The amazing size and detail of Thanos caused my jaw to hit the floor.  The fine detail of Spider-Man, how light he is.  There is a bunch to love in the statues I already have, and certainly enough to make me want more.  I mentioned in Thanos I was going for an Infinity Gauntlet line up.  Doctor Strange takes me further down that road, so he was kind of a no brainer for my next target.  I went to visit my friends over at BigBadToyStore.com, and they set me up with a great deal and super good value on shipping!   read more

Diamond Select Toys: Marvel Premiere Collection Thanos Resin Statue

MUReview is spoiled with riches this late week in August of 2017.  Our good friends at Diamond Select Toys sent us many, many large boxes of beautiful things to share with you.  Of all the things in those boxes, my most anticipated is what you will see below.  Something that, since it’s announcement, I was literally foaming at the mouth and chomping at the bit to get my hands on….and well…I did.  The Marvel Premiere Collection Thanos Resin Statue.  The easy contrast to our look at the Spider-Man statue, Spidey is PVC, Thanos is Resin.  It’s a different type of statue entirely, but fantastically, stands beautifully next to the PVC line statues.  I remember way back in the day when I started picking up statues, my goal was always to re-create some semblance of the Infinity Gauntlet roster.  Thanos brings me a keystone step closer to that goal, and he’s an absolutely astonishing figure at a surprising value focused price point!  Buckle up folks, here is where I gush mercilessly about this statue. read more

Diamond Select Toys has formally and fully made a splash on the statue scene as of recent times.   They’ve come out with an entirely impressive roster of statues that are well designed, well painted, and just the perfect size, and price to inspire a collection that has more than a little longevity.  My memory is a little hazy on the subject, but I believe DST launched their foray into PVC statues in 2016, if not mid-late 2015.  They’ve brought, from what I can see, almost 20 Marvel character PVC statues to market so far at a price point of $45.  Before you keep reading, let that sink in.  Collector / shelf display grade statues, less than $50.  The roster boasts heavy hitters too, apart from Spider-Man who we will take a look at today, Doctor Strange, Phoenix, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, Jewel, Thor, the list goes on.  The list is also expanding heavily in 2017 and 2018, movie versions of the Guardians, TV versions of Punisher, Elektra, so much more.  Diamond Select PVC statues, especially of the Marvel ilk are something to be incredibly excited for for a ton of reasons.  I am excited for the line, for those ton of reasons, and thanks to our friends at Diamond Select Toys, I get to share my first one with you today (not to be too far followed by my second one I’m sure…).  Let’s check out Spider-Man! read more
