Before her descent into madness, Dr. Harleen Quinzel was a promising psychiatrist assigned to Arkham Asylum, Gotham's home for the criminally insane. But after meeting the Joker, the young doctor became obsessed with the crazed criminal's warped mind. Sensing opportunity, the Joker manipulated her, driving his therapist so mad that he was able to control her. Harleen fell in love with the villain, broke him out of Arkham and devoted her life to making him happy and spreading his bloody brand of mayhem
Athletic, agile and dangerously unpredictable in a fight, Harley Quinn is a formidable opponent in her own right. She is willing to do anything in order to further the Clown Prince of Crime's goals—no matter the cost to anyone else or even herself. Her energetic, affable and animated personality is enough to make almost anyone drop their guard—a mistake that could easily cost them their life. Deranged and psychotic, Harley Quinn is the poster girl for chaos' terrifying allure.
Starting with the face you can see this is a perfect match for her comic book counterpart The cheekbones, red lips, villainess smile it’s all here. It’s a dead ringer. She’s painted her trademark white that almost looks a touch of grey in the light The eyes have the pink and blue smeared makeup below and partially around them while the head is slightly tipped at an angle. From the chin to the eyebrows it’s a dead ringer. The hair has the part and comes down the sides of the face in the trademark pigtails, with a slight curl in the front. The left pigtail has the pink coloring at the bottom, while the right has the baby blue almost green color at the top that morphs into a dark blue and it comes down to Harleys hand as she twists it between her fingers. Her trademark black choker collar is on as well.
The top of the body is accurate with the red and black corset top with alternating red and black stars on the chest. It’s a very shiny paint job that glistens in the light. The top has all the stitching lines in it as if it were real, complete with gold buckles, but its painted and designed to give it a true comic book look. Moving down you can see her trademark belt and shorty shorts . The gold star belt buckle is almost as shiny as the shorts. A simple star in a circle, but that’s all it takes to stand out. The belt is a deep shade of gray and it goes perfectly with the black and red shorts. The left red side has Harleys trademark diamond logo on the side.
This side shot gives you a good look at the pop gun she is carrying. You have to look close but its clearly a toy gun. It has the cork in the muzzle. Other than that it’s a perfectly sculpted six shooter that’s cocked back and ready to fire. You can see all of her fingers are individually sculpted which is a trademark of Diamond Selects craftmanship. If you look down towards the waist you can see her belt has a row of bullets toward the side that are all a grey like silver with bright gold tips.
The back does not have much going on as its such a little costume but you do get a great shot of the boots and socks. You can see the bright black socks with the red stripe at the top that are tucked into her big red and black boots, that are on alternating feet to match the shorts. The buckles go all the way down and are a faint gold color. I really cant get over the shine on this statue. Its one of the brightest Harley Quinn pieces I own, and I own a lot.
The base is fantastic it a set of four Joker cards painted exactly in the style the Joker carries with him red, black jester hat with on ominous half sneer half smile face resting on the baby blue top with red and black bells with JOKER written at the top and bottom of each. The cards are so well done they have that off brown staining that paper gets as it becomes older. Throw in the fact they are laid out like a regular 4 of a kind and it really looks amazing. Its also bright enough in the center but dull enough on the sides to make her red and black boots really pop out. Its one of the coolest bases I have ever seen
This is a great Harley Quinn statue to add to your collection. As I stated I have lots of Harley Quinn stuff so there was a home for her right away. It’s a great piece from Diamond Select that you should pick up right away.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man as you know is one of the main enemies in the ghostbusters film. He’s the manifest of Ray Stantz memories and comes to life thanks to Gozer the Gozerian in the first film. He later ends up befriending the Ghostbusters during the animated series The Real Ghostbusters. Well as Diamond Select Toys has been putting out an amazing line of Ghostbusters figures it was only natural the make a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. And as New York Comic Con was going on it was only natural that Diamond Select have some exclusive items for the big show. One of those is the Scared Stay Puft variant.
Mr. Stay Puft is all here in his scared glory. Just like the films, and cartoons he’s decked out in his sailor outfit complete with red neckerchief. I love the wide scared expression on the face. It’s a simple black mouth with just a hint of white shaded into the side to give it a bit of depth. The cheek bones are puffed out under his eyes which are perfect black circles made slightly larger to give it a surprised look of fear. The eyebrows, although the same color are molded up and sticking out to give the piece a three dimensional look. His little Stay Puft hat is sitting to the left of his head, and his little sailor collar on top of his chest. It’s a fun little piece, that’s actually something you can play with.
This side shot gives you a look at a great bit of shading. As Mr. Stay Puft is basically bright white Diamond Select used a light variation of blue to give it a few shaded highlights. Very noticeable on the wrist and fingers this figure has a little bit of movement capable on the forearm. But as he is a giant marshmallow that really just lumbers around he’s not overly articulate. I really like the blue style of shading as it puts a bit of color into the piece without taking away it’s a big marshmallow.
The feet are just rolls of marshmallow fat essentially. Smooth, with a touch again of the blue shading around his ankle area. It stands really flat and firm and as you can tell is a good sized figure. You can have him battle your other figures, or if you’re a collector you can display him. He comes packed in a cover box so you can lift the cover to display the figure, or you can do what I do and just take him out. My son plays with him, then stand him with his other figures. It’s a really cool piece. If you could not make it to comic con you may get lucky and find one on Ebay. Hurry and find one now though before they shoot up to high in price. A fun toy or a fun statue you take your pick.

The Joker is a serial killer and a super-villain, a dangerous madman who dresses like a clown and commits violent crimes. He is often recognized as Batman's greatest enemy, living in and terrorizing Gotham City, although he spends most of his time in Arkham Asylum. In addition to being a deadly and unpredictable physical combatant, he is a brilliant and ruthless criminal mastermind. His crimes require no motivation other than his sadistic desire to show people the meaninglessness of life through pain and death, and the narcissism to see the world remade in his own image. He is constantly adapting his personality and his psychosis to respond to the world around him, sometimes a harmless trickster and at others a brutal mass-murderer. Batman is his only worthy opponent, and although he has passed up multiple opportunities to murder the dark knight, he has no such problems with killing Robin or crippling Batgirl. Although his origins remain unclear and shrouded in mystery, it is also known that prior to the chemical accident that scarred his mind and body he was the small-time criminal Red Hood.
The Joker movie in theaters is not only amazing but its really helped to bring Joker love back to the mainstream. Not entirely sure that’s good come to think of it. Anyway as good as it is I still like my Joker to have the classic look from the comics. The bright green his, outlandish costumes, and of course the disfigured smile. Well the amazing people at Diamond Select Toys are taking care of this with their new Joker statue.
Starting at the face you can see the trademark look is here front and center. The etched, slick back bright green hair with shades of black to show its combed back nice and neat. That hair matches those trademark bright green eyebrows that are perked up and slanted back to give a truly menacing look to the Clown Prince of Crime. The nose is pointed out like in the books, and the blood red lips are scrunched and opened in the disfigured menacing smile showing off the pearly white teeth. Notice all the detail in having the face smeared. Even though it’s a comic book style statue Diamond Select still sculpted all the frowns in the forehead and around the cheeks and eyes to blend with the smile of the jaw line. Even though he’s smiling he’s still evil. This shot also shows you the depth of color as the green shirt is a totally different shade than the hair and eyebrows. Diamond Select always goes that extra mile when it comes to their products.
Moving to the body its classic joker all the way. Bright purple tuxedo jacket that’s sculpted to show the wrinkles in it from where his arm is outstretched, and shaded in a deeper shade of purple in spots to give it a shadowed look. The trademark poisoned yellow flower on the lapel is intact as well. The wrinkles in the suite are so well done, and added to the fact it’s a comic book style statue that most place just make smooth really helps to set this apart. The gold vest has all is buttons, and is etched to be wrinkled as well. Its even slights bunched up by the waist from the lifting of his hand. The bow tie is a perfect touch to break everything up.
From the side you can see the trademark Jokers card that he’s holding out in his right hand. Perfectly painted to look like an actual card and slid in between his fingers which are all individually sculpted. The purple gloves are perfectly designed as well full of all the wrinkles and you can even see the cuff of his green shirt rising up from underneath the jacket. One other thing to point out, look how menacing he looks from this angle. It’s almost creepy.
From the back you can see the knife he his holding. It’s a detailed silver blade with a black and silver handle being clutched in his hand. The fingers are all individually sculpted as well wrapped perfectly around the handle of the blade. Like the outstretched arm you can also see the cuff of the green shirt from this side of the jacket as well. Notice the back of the jacket, its also all wrinkled and stretched out to mimic the body movement. The tails to the coat are a nice touch as they are sculpted to stick out and flow separately from the body. And on one final note of how amazing the detail is you can even see a bit of his green shirt coming up from his neck. This is such a well done piece its insane.
Before I point out the amazing base, lets look at the Jokers pinstripe purple pants. Like the rest of the design wrinkled to give it a real look with a bit of gentle shading to give it a shadow. Wrinkled around the knee area the most they look great. You can see his white and black shoes, that appear to have some type of scuffing or dry blood on them. The shoes have a bit of shading to give them a shined, yet worn look with looks really amazing in the light. The base itself is what appears to be a piece of damaged street. A black and grey jagged rock design which is cool on its own, but it’s the props that really make the whole thing stand out. From the old school bomb complete with plunger behind him to the dynamite wrapped up in the front this screams Joker all the way. Throw in a few pairs of chattering teeth and some pish with Joker faces and a big mallet and you have a fantastic base to a fantastic piece.
Joker fans, and comic book fans alike will want to add this one to their collection right away. Its one of my favorite Diamond Select pieces to date, and it’s simply a must buy. Go and get yours today.

Batwoman the comic book character, and Batwoman the TV character are slightly different origin wise. So as this statue represents the television version I’ll stick with the TV Synopsis.
Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair, and it's under the watch of Jacob Kane and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. When the Alice in Wonderland gang targets the firm, Kane's daughter Kate returns home, deciding that if she wants to help her family and her city, she'll have to become the one thing her father loathes -- a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her stepsister Mary and the crafty Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises' tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman.
So the first episode of the Batwoman show was as good as I had hoped it would be. I really dig the character in the comics, and her appearance in last years Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover was great as well. I was really excited when Diamond Select Toys announced they would be making a Statue of her based off of the television show (She has a comic version one as well) I was excited. And I was not disappointed. This thing is amazing
I'm going to start with the face. It's perfect plain and simple. It looks like Ruby Rose come to life. From the bright red lips to the eyes to even the eye makeup around the eye you see through the mask eye holes it’s amazing on every level. Lips, nose, cheekbones you name it. It's perfectly sculpted and painted to look as she does on the show under the cowl. As long as we're on the face look at this amazing detail in the hair. It's etched out so meticulously you would swear it was done strand by strand. It flows and curves perfectly around the face, neck, and as you see flowing over her arm. The shading is breathtaking and the bright red with just a very very slight touch of light black is identical to the look of the show. It's by far one of, if not the best hair I've seen on any statue. The cowl is great as if you look close you can see where it lifts slightly from her face. The pointed horns are great as they have more of a tip than Batman’s does. I love how the hair in on the top exposing the right one, but blocking the majority of the left. I also cant point out enough how well the paint job is on her costume. Dark black but it has such a shine to it it stands out almost more than a comic book painted statue would. It’s the brightest
black I have ever seen.
Moving down to the body you really see how this Diamond Select has captured this perfectly. The black costume clings to the muscles sculpted underneath perfectly. You can even see all the little details throughout showing how its more armor than a spandex costume Throw in the bright red bat emblem, and bright red utility belt and everything just comes together. I really like how Diamond Select Toys designs these to show the muscles underneath the outfit. It gives it a real world look. The bending of the right leg gives it a nice touch as well showing she is standing with authority. And lets not forget the cape flowing behind her that you can see front the front. I have to keep saying it, this is just the most colorful black costume on a statue I have ever seen.
This side shot gives us not only a look at the inside of the cape, which you can see is a faded maroon as opposed to the bright red. It actually matches her boots. The gloves still have the bright red around the forearm area with each finger individually sculpted as she clutches a light pole while she looks watch over Gotham. It’s a really simple and effective side piece to this statue.
Before I get to the base I want to point out from the back how good this cape looks. Hanging down yet still almost blowing in the wind as Batwoman prepares to leap into action. The cape is definitely a huge part of the Batwoman costume, and this is just spot on. Her bright red hair flowing to the side combined with the bright black cape bunched and wrinkled behind her knees really look great
Finally we have the base. Its simple and effective. Her maroon colored take on the bat symbol. Smooth and sleek like the rest of the statue. It’s a simple bat with the base of the light pole she is clutching in the center. Her left boot is planter firmly to the base, while her right is crossed and arched giving a hint of animation to the piece.
Batwoman looks to bee the dark gritty show it needs to be and will no doubt fill the void left by the departure of Arrow. With that said Diamond Select has outdone themselves with this one. It looks right at home next to my Arrow and Flash statues. Go pick one up for your collection today.

The Green Goblin is a Halloween-themed supervillain whose weapons resemble bats, ghosts and jack-o'-lanterns. Comics journalist and historian Mike Conroy writes of the character: "Of all the costumed villains who've plagued Spider-Man over the years, the most flat-out unhinged and terrifying of them all is the Green Goblin. Originally the Goblin was Norman Osbourne who after exposure to the goblin formula goes mad and becomes the Green Goblin he also becomes one of Spider-Mans’ greatest foes. Killing Gwen Stacey before he himself is killed, and later revived the Goblin has been a thorn in Spiderman’s side for years
The Green Goblin has always been a favorite character of mine. He has bombs that look like pumpkins, dresses like a Halloween costumed demon, has pointy boots and flies around on a glider. What’s not love about this guy, other than the fact he wants to kill Spiderman. Diamond Select Toys has done a great job with this figure, which is also an amazing display piece as well. My son does Display it, but that’s after he plays non stop with it, like he does all his Diamond Select toys.
Blister packed with a clear front so you can proudly see the figure on his glider, with Peter Parker all tied up. It’s got the name on the left side with a big pumpkin logo on the bottom, not blocking any of the figure, and the backing is a design of Green Goblin splash pages. It’s got the tab on the front in case you want to hang it without damage. It’s a really neat display figure made all the more cooler because the pumpkin has an evil face and fire all around it.
Taking the figure out of the box and setting up you can see how amazing it looks. The shading alone on the Goblin is amazing making it look almost realistic. Rome the leg muscles to the menacing mouth to the purple in the outfit that’s colored in various shaded with black added its just amazing. Positioned on an early version of his glider and carrying a tied up Peter, whose cloths have ripped to expose his Spiderman costume this is beautiful. It’s hard to believe it’s a toy.
Just look at this guy. His big yellow evil eyes with the little black dot in the center and the big pointy ears accented by the purple hat the face is a dead ringer. The entire thing is great. The shading of the purple part of the costume is my favorite. Dark, light, and medium colors of purple mixed with dark and light black give it a battle worn and shaded look, and well as really highlighting the bright green, mixed with touches of yellow and black in the rest of the outfit. The teeth are all sculpted as are the fingers. He has a pumpkin bomb that you can see in the first shot, but it fell off for this one. Now I keep forgetting I’m talking about a toy, so yes he can be played with. The arms head, waist, and legs do move so you can play with him. One thing though the knees do not bend on this figure so his legs although they move in the thigh area do not bend down so it will stay in the crouched position.
The main reason for his legs staying this way are for the glider placement. His pointy boots slide under the plastic straps and mount on little pegs from the holes on the bottom of his boots. The glider, which other figures can fit on perfectly in the old school version which is a simple black goblin head cutout. It’s a very cool accessory that is fun to play with.
Last I want you to get a look at the Peter Parker figure. Now this does not move in any way, but look how well its done. The grimacing face, the ripped up cloths revealing the costume underneath the street cloths, the clutched hands. Its all shaded and sculpted perfectly. Its looks exactly like the Amazing Spiderman 39 comic book cover.
This is another great toy for play or display. Diamond Select makes the best designed, and most durable toys out there today. My son just loves playing with these for hours on end, then setting them up for display in his room. There just amazing products from top to bottom

S - wisdom of Solomon
H - strength of Hercules
A - stamina of Atlas (including his invulnerability)
Z - power of Zeus (including his ability to summon thunderbolts)
A - courage of Achilles
M - speed of Mercury (including flight)
When a mysterious man in a green cloak asks Billy Batson to follow him into the subway station. A magic subway car painted in unusual shapes and colors escorts them to an underground throne room, which is inhabited by a very old man with a long beard and a white robe. As the man in green disappears, the old man on the throne explains to Billy that he is the Wizard Shazam, and has used the powers of "the gods" - Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, hence the name "Shazam" - to fight evil for over 3,000 years. However, he has now grown too old to continue and is in need of a successor. The wizard explains that Billy was chosen due to his misfortune: he had been thrown out by a greedy uncle who stole his inheritance following the deaths of his parents (later retellings of the origin would also note that Billy was chosen for being "pure of heart").Ordered by the wizard to speak the name "Shazam," Billy is struck by a sudden bolt of lightning and transformed into a super powered adult in a red costume with gold trim.
Shazam starring Zachary Levi is DC’s best superhero film to date in my opinion. Fun, bright, colorful, and full of likable characters. The fact it was a family style superhero film did not bother me as it really needed to be with a hero like Shazam. Diamond Select Toys has put out a remarkable PVC Statue to honor this great film and it looks just as colorful and bright as the character in the movie.
The face is awesome. It’s the spitting image of Zachary Levi. The hair stands out to me as its done real style, but slicked back to give it almost a comic book look. The cheeks are especially well done. You can see how they are slightly sucked in and shaded just a bit darker. You combine that with the stern yet almost happy lips and slightly raised eyebrows and you have a truly realistic look.. Take into account that lighting is hitting him, the look in the eyes is almost polarizing. The torso looks great. A combination of Bright and deep maroon with gold, white and blue this is the comic book drawing come to life. Take notice of the rib cage. It’s shaded a bit darker to shadow the lightning that if flowing down and also to show the muscles underneath the costume. It looks great. The entire torso looks great. Making the lightning bolt bright blue with touches of white with some blue that is brighter than the rest looks great. It looks like the lightning is flowing though the costume. The gold belt looks good, as it has the lightning bolts etched throughout
Moving to the side you can the top of the white, almost cream colored cape. I love how the cape curves to give it the blowing in the wind look. You also have to be impressed with the arms. You can see all of the muscles getting ready to pop through the costume. Painted and shaded just right to give it an amazingly real look but still holding the comic book style. The fist flexing and outstretched puts in yet another piece of the tough guy puzzle. I also like how both legs are straight and almost flexing it adds to the feeling that this Shazam is ready for a fight. And last but not least let’s discuss the lighting. Coming from Shazam’s chest as it comes from the sky, it twists and turns to about Shazam’s thigh. It’s bright and cark blue, yet clear at the same time. It goes off in all types of different directions and when light hits it, it looks pretty realistic. It’s the definite sell point of this piece and really makes it stand out
The back pretty much speaks for itself. The white and gold cape flowing in the wind. It's of course painted bright white but if you look you can see the shading done in the areas it sculpted to give it that flowing look. This is a perfect example of why Diamond Select is leaps and bounds ahead of other competition.
The base is simple as it’s a brownish etched up boulder. It flows like a real boulder and it’s designed very well, but the boots are the main feature here. The classic comic book look. Bright gold It catches the eye and really stands out. The way the feet are planted are a nice touch as well. With the both feet firmly planted on the base it gives it a really solid look.
Overall this is a great piece that belongs in your collection. It goes great next to Diamond Selects other DC Comic book line inspired statues. Hurry and pick this one up today.

It's almost time, kids! The clock is ticking!" From Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, this set of clothed action figures includes the three iconic trick or treaters from the 1982 horror movie.
Each is dressed for a night of fun and each comes with two interchangeable heads: one in the distinctive Silver Shamrock mask and one displaying the effects of the triggered mask.
These articulated figures stand approximately 6" tall and also come with trick or treat bags and a TV set accessory with lenticular effect. Window box packaging. These will be arriving in January 2020 with an expected price of $49.99
When you have to kill the boogeyman, you buy a John Wick action figure!
\nThis 7-inch Select-scale action figure captures modern action icon Wick as he appears in his first film outing, dressed in a suit and with multiple weapon accessories as well as his faithful dog, whose death spurs the action of the movie. In scale to all other Select action figures, and featuring over 20 points of articulation, this figure comes packaged in display-ready Select action figure packaging with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. Designed by Yuri Tming and sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
John Wick is packaged in the clear bubble plastic making the figure fully visible. JOHN WICK is on the side and the back card is designed bright and colorful purple and blue. The bottom left hand again has the John Wick name If you’re a collector that does not open these it has the standard hook on the top of the package so they can be tacked onto a wall with no issue if you still want to show it off. As a nice touch you can see his little beagle, guns, and coin with none of them being covered up
John Wick is designed spot on to resemble his film counterpart He’s skinnier that some of the other figures because he’s a pretty small guy in the films. Designed to be athletic more than muscular you can still see all the muscles underneath the suite just not bulging like a traditional hero. His hair and beard match up perfectly. He has cuts on his face to show he's fresh from battle. His eyes and mouth form a sort of blank look taking a bit away from the intensity.
Wearing the trademark black suite, white shirt and tie he looks spot on. I love how the outfit is sculpted to be all wrinkled and worn yet not tattered in terms of color. If you notice the black dress shoes are brighter than the outfit giving it a well polished look. Throw in the black tie and you have a perfect match.
This is probably my favorite in terms of playability. He’s fully posable and able to do battle with any of the villains, or other toys you throw his way. Not only does he articulate the smoothest but he comes packing an entire aresenal of weapons. The addition of the coin and dog are a great touch. This is a great figure to display or to have him battle it out with other toys

Longtime X-Man and Avenger Hank McCoy, a.k.a. Beast, joins the long-running Marvel Select action figure line, adding to the already extensive X-Men line-up. Featuring approximately 16 points of articulation and interchangeable hands, the 7-inch figure comes with a new section of the Danger Room, with climbing bars for the team's resident super-genius gymnast. Combine it with the other X-Men's sections of the Danger Room to forge a larger diorama! Packaged in the famous Select packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. Sculpted by Jeasn St. Jean!
Beast, as you can see is packaged in the clear bubble plastic making the figure fully visible. Like the others the name MARVELS BEAST goes down the left side and the back card is designed bright and blue you can see the background is designed with images of Beast. The bottom left hand where the characters name is features the X-Men symbol. If you’re a collector that does not open these it has the standard hook on the top of the package so they can be tacked onto a wall with no issue if you still want to show it off.
After about 5 minutes of unwrapping this guy, yes he’s in there with those annoying twist ties and bands both I was able to get him out. He’s a very heavy figure, which he should be as he is one of the bigger X-men. The design is amazing. Leaps and bounds above a normal action figure you get at a big box store. You can see in the pics below how well sculpted and shaded he is. All the bulging muscles and a deep color blue with tons of shading and etching for the fur. They really make it look exactly like the character. The trademark black shorts with the bright yellow X symbol belt really stands out. Each toe, and finger on the fist is fully detailed.
The arms and legs move up and down like a standard figure as do the hands and feet. Beast bends in the legs and arms as well as twists in the waist. The head moves as well. He’s a big figure that’s designed to be overly muscular so he moves a bit stiffer than the others my son and I played with.
I took a pic of his head to show the detail that goes into these things. Squinty eyes, etched in hair to seperate it a bit from the fur on the body, the growling mouth it accented by the blood red inside and bright white fangs. This truly is an impressive figure in every sense of the word.
You can see from the side the entire body is designed extremely big and muscular with fur all over. Everything is comic accurate as well as anatomically as all the muscles are spot on. Notice the subtile lines of black and variations of blue to give the figure depth
The base is a piece of the Danger Room. If you get the other Diamond Select X-Men figures it all connects to form a big set. I was not a huge fan of this base. It looks nice but it was a pain to snap together. It took me about 10min to finally line up and get it connected. It's very thin so I didn't encourage my son to smash other figures into it.
My son play’s with these guys every single day. That’s saying something as he is normally not an action figure guy. These are amazing figures that you should buy either to collect or for your kids to play with. There much more durable than any figure I have ever come across. You can beat them like crazy and they don’t break or scratch. Throw in the fact they look amazing and you have a great toy or collectable for any age. And remember. Display base means kids should pick it up.

Sabretooth was originally portrayed as a non-powered serial killer but was later written as a mutant possessing bestial superhuman abilities, most notably a rapid healing factor, razor-sharp fangs and claws, and superhuman senses. He is a vicious assassin, responsible for numerous deaths both as a paid mercenary and for his personal pleasure. Although he first appears in Iron Fist he's most commonly associated with the X-Men in particular as an enemy of Wolverine
This figure is big. Not as big as Hulk, but Big. Heavy, tall, and wide this Sabretooth figure is truly comic accurate. It’s a durable figure that can take a heck of a beating, and dish one out as well. Packaged in the clear covered blister card you can see the Sabretooth Name going down the left side with the giant print of his claw marks on the bottom left. The background of the card is a comic book art splash. Sabretooth is packed fully visible with his his base, and accessories all fully displayed with the tab on the card to hang if you don’t want to open.
Once you remove the ungodly amount of tape and bands, and those stupid twist ties you have a pretty amazing figure. Very big and stiff. He moves in all the main spots. Legs, feet, hand, and arms all bend, the waist bens, as does the head. The head looks great. The steel blue mutant eyes wincing underneath the brown helmet, that matches the outfit and comic perfectly look menacing. Combined with the snarl that you can clearly see his fangs really add to the evil look. Everything is etched and shaded in. The blond hair and mutten chops look great as does the fur collar around the costume. You can see all of the over exaggerated muscles popping from underneath the outfit as well
A quick look at the back shows how the costume all matches perfectly. This is comic accuracy at its finest. I have the hands turned out to show the movement. The figure is articulate, just a bit stiffer than others primarily due to the size
The base is some type of industrial setting. It's features lots of removable mechanical style pieces. The best of those is the "Caution Do Not Enter" sign that is bent and twisted. My son loves using it to beat other figures senseless.
This is another great toy for play or display. Diamond Select makes the best designed, and most durable toys out there today. My son will not stop playing with these and I really don’t mind playing with them either
