New Thanos and Spider-Man Marvel Select Figures From Diamond Select Toys

Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with the Disney Store to offer two new Marvel Select action figures, both of which are available today!

The first figure is of a classic comic villain, the Mad Titan, Thanos. Inspired by his modern comic book appearance, as seen in 2013’s INFINITY limited series, this figure measures approximately 7.75 inches tall with 16 points of articulation and includes an interchangeable unhelmeted head.

The second figure comes from the world of Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Depicting Peter Parker in his unmasked appearance, this figure features the likeness of actor Tom Holland as well as three additional sets of interchangeable hands. It measures approximately 6.75 inches tall and has 16 points of articulation.

Here’s a look at the Spidey figure!




Both figures are available for purchase as of Monday, April 23, in-store and online at shopdisney.com and shop.marvel.com. Each figure comes packaged in display-ready Select packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. The Marvel Select line recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and just released its 150th figure in the line.
