“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Bruce Lee
What can be said about Bruce Lee that hasn’t already been said. Martial Artist, teacher, philosopher, actor, author, you name it. He was the inspiration for generations of martial artists to this day. His life sadly was taken way to soon. He has a legacy that will never be forgotten. From his books, inspirational quotes and yes his films. Enter The Dragon and The Big Boss being my two favorites. Bruce Lee is beloved by legions of fans. Diamond Select Toys have made a few very nice statues in honor of the late Bruce Lee, now their partner Gentle Giant has made a gorgeous resin bust that is a thing of sheer beauty and a must have for fans around the world.
This is the epitome of “spot on: this is Bruce Lee come to life. The hair, the eyes, the lips, you name it. The hair as well as the eyebrows are sculpted and etched in to look real. You can see the hair looks itself like individual strands done just like Bruce wore it. Hanging over the forehead and tight to the ears it looks identical to the man himself. The eyebrows are raised slightly as the lips, which are a dead ringer as well have the pouty look. If you watched any of the films you know Bruce would do his trademark yells before a big punch and this captures the moment before. Its as if he’s got his head tilted and he’s going for one of his knockout kicks. The cheeks are slightly sunken in as Bruce was very lean. You can see all of the modeling done throughout this piece to give it the most realistic facial features possible. The shading is also amazing. When the light hits this, like in this photo you can see how much it looks like real skin.
The torso, which is the final piece of the statue looks spot on as well You can see the trap muscles in Bruce’s neck as well as the slit and indents in his chest muscles. Bruce Lee had no fat on him. He was solid muscle and this piece really shows that off. Not exaggerated to show bulky muscles like say a superhero piece, no this is done to show off real world shape and feel. This is done perfectly. Once again all the muscles areas are not only anatomically correct they match the real Bruce Lee to a “T” The shading is amazing. It helps to really pinpoint all the detail that went into this. This is without a doubt the most lifelike piece I have ever seen and as good as these pics look, trust me when I say the real thing looks even better.
The base is a red pole with Dragons on it.. A black, almost deep brown bottom and top that the torso connects to. The pillar is a deep red that is designed to look like its made of stone. A pillar of sorts, maybe its from Mr. Han’s study. Whatever it is it looks fantastic. The deep red is a fantastic choice as are the golden, almost bronze dragons that run through it. You can see the incredible amount of detail that went into them. Etched, shaded, just beautiful to say the least. These are stunning and really look great on this pillar as Bruce Lee has always been synonymous with “The Dragon: This is without a doubt the best base I have ever seen on a bust. The pillar is as stunning as the bust itself.
This is an amazing piece. It’s the perfect likeness, and has a fantastic feel to it that honors the memory of the late Bruce Lee. If you’re a fan or collector I highly recommend picking one up. Its very limited. Only 1000 of these have been made and they are almost gone. Order yours asap.

Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers -- Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner -- must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos -- the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
Thanos, although not a favorite character of mine from the comics was pretty amazing in the films. Josh Brolin played him to perfection and he really did come across as a villain, more so a force to be reckoned with. The look was different in the films than the books but that was ok. The film look was actually very cool and I like how it was different. Diamond Select has made a number of Thanos pieces both based off the films and comics so when this one came out I knew it needed to be added to the collection. Massive like the other pieces, in fact this is close to 2 feet tall. Its also very wide, and very intimidating.
Let’s look right at this face It’s crafted perfectly. You can see all the lines and indents sculpted into it. The lines are etched and shaded in a combination of black and grey as such to give it a shadow look thus creating a touch of realism. I mean you can tell this is Josh Brolin under the CGI effect it’s so realistic. The nose and cheek bones are formed up and the eye brows are slightly slanted down to give him a menacing look yet his eyes are actually looking upwards at his infinity gauntlet that he is ready to snap.. His eyes are well painted in a bright white and almost feel like he’s looking at you. The lines throughout the face give it a look of pure evil His head is crafted to give his head a dome look. The shading sculpting and painting give this a true film look. His head is not covered with his helmet in this version, but the one thing you definitely notice are his massive teeth. Each tooth individually sculpted and painted. You can see the spaces in between them as well as his red gums. The detail in this second to none and it looks like the movie is coming alive in your house. Having him look at the Gauntlet before the finger snap is a perfect pose as well.
This front shot shows how movie accurate the body is. The dark blue uniform with the golden armor on the top of the neck and around the arms makes look great. It’s painted and shaded to give it a spandex almost metallic look. It’s done in that elephant style that I really like as it gives the piece more depth and really makes it shine under the light. You can see all the muscles under the costume and as I stated at over 20 inches tall it’s made larger than most of the Marvel statues it truly has a larger than life feel. The positioning is fantastic, with Thanos’s big golden gloves arched up give it a real sinister look with his left hand drawn back for balance. I love how the golden parts have the black shading. It really makes them look like dirty gold yet still shine. Add to this that the costume is only, for the most part two colors and it makes everything work. And I have to, like always, point out that each finger is individually sculped and done in such a menacing way it really makes this look evil. You can even see the veins bulging through his biceps and forearms. The pants are very well done, also elephant style might I add, but a very slight different shade of gold. Just enough to separate the armor from it. The boots however are the same color as the pants and match perfectly.
The side shot really gives you a good look at how well the Infinity Gauntlet is sculpted. Shiny, sleek and bright. You can see that glove has all the indents and markings just like it does in the films. Everything is sculpted and etched in to give it a 3D look and feel. The jewels are all represented and sculpted in to make them look like they are sticking out. This is a perfect match to the films in every sense of the word. You get a good view of how gigantic Thanos’s arms are as well. Veins and muscles popping all over. Notice the elbow area. It has the same line indents sculpted in just like the chin area. You can even see, if you look close how the glove is designed to show the “Snap” getting ready to happen. Now if you prefer your Thanos to have a simple fist, you do get an extra gauntlet that you can swap out. I personally prefer this look as the final snap in Infinity War was iconic.
The base is basic rock style, in fact judging by the looks or it is a combination of rock and rubble from battle. A reddish brown on the right are filled with cracks, scratches and markings to look like real rock, and it even has a few patches of grass throw in for good measure. From there it is raised into almost rubble. You can see that same reddish brown but it’s now raised almost staircase style into larger chunks where Thanos has his boots planted. All designed to be fully cracked and damaged throughout. It’s a very detailed piece. It’s also just the right size and color as to not take anything away from Thanos himself. You also get a great look at his boots in this shot. The boots are golden to give to give it that armored look and feel. Like the other armored parts it used the shades colors and shading to match perfectly. This is a very cool choice for a base as Thanos was on the grounds of Wakanda when he snapped his fingers.
As I have said before Thanos although not a favorite villain of mine in the books was one hell of a bad guy in the movies. Josh Brolin played him to perfection and he will go down in history as one of the greatest Big Bads in film history. This statue is limited with only 1000 made so you better “snap” to it and pick one up right away.

Old Man Logan is an alternative version of the Marvel Comics character Wolverine. This character is an aged version of Wolverine set in an alternate future universe designated Earth-807128, where the supervillains overthrew the superheroes. Introduced as a self-contained story arc within the Wolverine ongoing series by writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven, it's also the basis of the Logan film.
Although Wolverine is an ok character to me I never went out of my way to read of collect his comics. His first solo mini series was good, but I never got the appeal of it. I enjoyed the live action X-Men films probably more than I did the books. One comic storyline I really loved however was Old Man Logan. Setting the story of Wolverine long retired and into the future. It heavily inspired the final live action Wolverine film Logan, which was one of the best superhero films ever made in my opinion. I have several Wolverine statues and figures in my collection so I was more than happy to hear that Diamond Select Toys had made a limited edition Old Man Logan Statue.
Looking at the face you can see it’s a dead ringer for the comic book. Old, grey, and giving his trademark sneer, this is bad ass from the start. The hair is meticulously etched to look real. It’s the classic mutton chop style sideburns that this time connect. As you can see the mustache is gone now. His hair is slicked back and grey like his beard. Its comic style but very well done as it combines grey, black, and a hint of white to give it a realistic look. The sculpting that went into the lines in the forehead and around the eyes is breath taking to say the least. Combine the frown with the slanted down grey eyebrows and just a touch of shading around the eye lids and this really has a menacing look about it. I love how the eyes are the cold steel blue color. It really does feel like it’s looking at you. Logan may be old now but he still has a wonderful tan that you can see in the skin tones. This piece has a look of determination on it that’s almost frightening. You also get a great look at how well the brown leather jacket looks. Sculpted to give it a wrinkled look then painted and shaded to make it appear very worn out. It’s a nice combination of various browns and blacks that really does look like real leather. Throw in the tan collar and it really pops. The grey shirt underneath tucked into the jeans give it a classic old Clint Eastwood look. And you can see that Logan is still very muscular.
Looking at the body you can see what a beast this is. The muscles explode from underneath this thing. Wearing a pair of wrinkled blue jeans with a few accents of black this is the classic look, and as it’s the comic book style to a “T” Even though they are more pale type colors this statue really stands out. I really can’t get over how overly muscular it is done. Every muscle in the body is popping out in full effect from under the clothing . The jacket, as you can see it complete with zipper. You can see how the other fist is clenched as well as the claws are fully extending ready to draw blood. The right hand is normal and simply left open. I really cant get over how well the sculpting in the jeans is done. Fully wrinkled and bunched just like a real pair. The shading and painting is done remarkably as well. In fact the entire outfit, especially under the lights looks real.
This side shot gives you a good look at the claws. You can see the sleeve of the jacket has a slight wrinkle around the wrist area where the arm is drawn back. You can see the three claws coming from the knuckles. They look great. Silver adamantium that’s got a hint of speckled painted inside to really make it shine. The positioning of the arms and claws is the key to this piece and these are done great. The right arm hanging down with an open hand, with the left fully extended with the claws coming out is classic Wolverine. The claws are his trademark and these really hit a home run. The fact the knuckles have the adamantium showing really adds to the gritty feel. Like I said I loved the Old Man Logan story and this is a dead ringer for the drawing.
The base is the snow that Logan is standing in. It looks real. White, but not overly bright to make it look like a cartoon, no this is white, grey, and hints of black all complied together to make it look real. I love the shading in spots to give it an iced over look. Everything is uneven like a real snowfall. You can see the rocks from the mountain area in full effect to add a bit of depth. Part of it still sticking up from the snow, the other part lying flat with snow covering it up. The snow looks fresh. You can actually picture it snowing when you look at this. I love all the little rocks and debris buried under the base and painted over to make it look more real. This is a classy base that really adds to the feel of the piece itself.
This is a great wolverine statue. As I keep stressing I loved the Old Man Logan storyline, it’s always been my favorites. This one really captures the anger and sadness of the storyline. The entire design is just amazing and Diamond Select has done another masterful job at putting out another must own Marvel Statue. Pick this one up today, but hurry he’s very limited and moving fast.

A 4-year Vietnam veteran, Frank Castle became a vigilante after seeing his wife and children gunned down for accidentally observing a Mafia "hit". Since then, he has devoted his life to the task of destroying organized crime wherever he finds it. Although he aids many heroes in their quests, they often come into conflict over his way of dealing with crime. At first, the Punisher was conceived by his creator, Gerry Conway, as a potential recurring antagonist for Spider-Man; however, his 1974 debut was critically acclaimed, and he became an anti-hero in the Marvel universe and an uneasy ally of The Wall Crawler. Throughout the years, the Punisher has appeared in the books of other Marvel heroes, such as Captain America, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, and many more.
I love the Punisher he is my second favorite Marvel comics character (Daredevil is number one) He’s the ultimate 80’s badass who is still taking out criminals with a vengeance in 2019. His attitude, methods, and means have not changed. You break the law, he takes you out, permanently. His comic book run has been nothing short of amazing. He has been drawn by multiple artists over the years. His overall look has not changed much. From a blue skull outfit, to a black skull outfit to finally a skull shirt with a trench coat the skull has always been the focal point of the outfit
You can see the frown molded into the face with the chin protruding out. The eyebrows are slanted down to further add to the steel look the Punisher is giving. I love the addition of the band aid on the nose. It adds to the badass factor. If you look you can see the band aids on his arms as well. It’s a cool touch for a statue done in this style. For a sleek piece its got a nice amount of etching and shading to it. You can see the bumps above the eyebrows as well as the frown lines and indents in the cheek area. It actually looks like the bottom lip is being slightly bit by the top lip. The hair is the classic slicked back jet black style with one little curl hanging down to the left. Its cartoon like in essence but it still manages to capture the look and feel of the classic punisher we all know and love
Looking at the body its old school all the way. The skull on the outfit with the teeth being the holders on the belt. Slightly different than the old days where the belt was a series of bullets that made up the teeth. To me this is the definitive version of how the Punisher should look. It’s the classic look that us older guys remember and love. The skull is battle worn heavily with tons of washed out areas. The rest of the outfit is a smooth almost cartoon style . Covered in black and grey wrinkles and speckles you can tell this guy has been in a war. You can see the muscles under the shirt, and the straps of the gun belts on the shoulder as well as the knife strap to the top of the shoulder are well rendered. It looks amazing. The gray and black shading look fantastic as it gives the statue a bit of depth. I enjoy the addition of the gun shot shells . I love how they are gold and red like a real shell. It not only adds to the overall massive amount of weapons The Punisher is carrying.
Moving to the side you get a good shot of all of Franks weapons. Grenades on the belt, shotgun on the back, gun on the leg, a real walking arsenal. You can see the biceps and triceps under the outfit. I love how it’s got the comic book design yet still follows the actual human body. The shotgun over the shoulder is a great touch and its perfectly sculpted. Black with the brown pump handle, all perfectly sculpted to look real. You can even see Frank has another gun, this on a rifle strapped to his back inside a zip up gun bag. The gloves, I want to point out, even have the seam sculpted into them on the side. You can see they are fingerless with each finger being individually sculpted. From the fully designed gun handle on the leg, to the wrinkles and scuffs in the outfit, this looks nice.
The bottom gives a good look at not only Franks dirty boots, which you can see have all the buckles and laces sculpted into them, but what looks to be his work area. Its appears to be like a garage floor. With a front page of the Daily Bugle showing the Kingpin and Matt Murdock, and scattered burned and charred money on the floor. Frank is standing with his feet firmly planted down. It’s a great idea for a base as the punisher has always been apart of the Daredevil and Kingpin world. Its also a great touch to have the entire floor scuffed up and cracked to further add to the grittiness of the piece.
I dig this statue. Old school Punisher with the white skull full of weapons. It’s actually my favorite Punisher piece that I own. I highly recommend picking this one up. With that said, this is a very limited piece and not many are left in stock. Gentle Giant still has a few left, so you better act fast. Grab one today.

I always enjoyed vision, more so his run in the old Avengers comics as opposed to the films. I mean don’t get me wrong, he was fine in the films but he never really resonated with me so to speak. That was until I watched the amazing Wanda Vision on Disney Plus. Quiet possibly the best Marvel show to date. I still sing Agatha All Along to myself randomly for no reason. It was a great show and really brought Vision to light in a different way. Now everyone knows I prefer comic book look statues so why Diamond Select Toys made a comic book resin Vision statue I knew I had to have it to put next to my Scarlett Witch piece.
Staring at the top you can see this is a comic accurate piece. Sleek and smooth just like the books. You can see vision has his trademark maroon colored head complete with mind stone intact. The head is done in a more square shape as he is an android after all. A perfectly square jaw with emphasis on the chin. Even his cheekbones are done slightly bigger than normal. You can see he has the pouty lips that are the same color as the rest of his head. The eyebrow area is slightly raised for depth and his eyes are pure white with only slight black shading around it. In fact the shading on this piece is amazing. As I said the head is basically one color, but all the small shading really make it come to life. You can see all the fair hints of light black used throughout with a deeper shade around his eyes. His green outfit starts at the back of his head and goes down to the rest of his body. Once again perfectly sculpted to give an exaggerated muscle look and feel. You can see muscle after muscle sculpted throughout. The outfit as I said is green with bold yellow cape and trunks. The shading is beautiful. The black shading really makes this piece like an animated drawing has come to life. Everything looks directly from the pages of the comic books. I really cant get over how a piece done in only 3 colors can have so much variation from the shading. This is a beautiful piece and it’s a dead ringer for the comic book likeness, which I have always preferred to the live action version.
This side shot shows off more of the green and yellow outfit. As you can see the trunks are even sculpted to give slight wrinkles to them where they bunch up around the legs. You can see his gloves and boots match the trunks and cape. Take note of the glove as you get a really good look at it from his outstretched hand. Notice how the shading is an orange color to show not only the wrinkles but how the colors would be affected in the light. It’s a great touch. Every finger is individually sculpted and the gloves itself have slight wrinkles toward the back where they would be bent from Visions forearm. You can see the black shading done to highlight all the muscles rippling through the costume. And what can be said about the cape other than simply beautiful. It flows perfectly off the shoulder area all the way down to his boots. It’s a beautiful yellow that matches the boots, gloves, and trunks, as well as the two yellow diamonds on visions chest. The cape really stands out in this piece and helps it all come together.
I can’t stress enough from the back how good this cape looks. Hanging down yet still almost blowing in the wind as Vision is ready to fight . Once again notice all the small etchings and lines throughout all the bends and folds. You can even see the back blow on the cape from where it is hovering above the smoking base. The cape is definitely a huge part of her overall outfit, and this is just spot on. Look at the shoulder area where the cape is lifting up with the body. That’s an attention to detail you don’t see very often. And like the rest of the outfit its bright as can be. It has such a classy look as opposed to the standard superhero cape designs. From flowing up and around the shoulders, to wrapping around the arms, to hanging towards the ground, this is a fantastic cape that really adds to the design. I also love how the shading was done not only in hints of black, but in shades of a deep yellow, almost light orange color. It really helps to add a sense of motion to the cape. The fact it almost is coming forward also adds a great deal of depth to the overall piece as well.
The base is a cloud of smoke that appears to be rising from the ground overtaking Visions boots. It’s very well done. It’s a huge cloud of grey smoke but as you can see there are blue, white, and various shades of black blended under all the grey to show it rising above the ground. The smoke is itself sitting on a standard oval grey base to give the piece a sort of platform if you will. It’s a great base for a great statue making it really stand out. I like how the boots are totally covered by the smoke rising. It adds a mystical look and feel to this piece.
Vision, as I stated is a great character, and with the new fans of WandaVision this will be a hard to get statue. Combine that with the fact only 3000 were made you better act fast. I recommend picking one up today, and fast.
