Before we look at the weird Namor statue, let’s take a moment to admire how badass this Marvel Select Blade figure is. He’s up for pre-order now at Diamond Select, but he’s missing several accessories, it looks like. This probably isn’t the finalized version of the vampire hunter, but even so, he looks far better than most of the stuff we’re seeing from Marvel Legends right now. Oh, and this figure still comes in display-friendly packaging.
The fearless vampire hunter Blade has arrived in the Marvel Select action figure line, and he is ready for war! Equipped with an arsenal of weapons, including sword, guns, stakes and more, the Daywalker also includes interchangeable normal and vamped-out heads. Standing approximately 7 inches tall, this collector-edition action figure features 16 points of articulation and comes in display-ready Select action figure packaging, with side panel artwork for shelf reference.
I’m sorry, but every time I see the new Namor as far as merchandise is concerned, he looks like he’s not too thrilled to be part of the MCU. The action figure that’s out at Target now looks like he’s worried he forgot to lock his car, which he parked in a bad part of LA.
The awkwardness was there even in this new diorama from Diamond Select. Is that Freddy Prinze Jr. playing a lifeguard who wants to throw hands with some rowdy kids on the beach? What is this?! Well, it’s a $59.99 chunk of PVC. That’s all I really know.
The long wait is over! Not only is the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever, almost here, we’re this close to the debut of Namor the Sub-Mariner in live action! To celebrate, DST is offering a new Gallery Diorama of the crown prince of Atlantis, coming to stores next year! Measuring approximately 10 inches tall, this sculpture is made of high-quality PVC and comes packaged in a full-color window box.
Oh, man. I hope that Namor is better in action once he shows up in Wakanda Forever because all these weird stylistic choices and changes to his origins are adding to some unintentional hilarity.[Source: Diamond Select] [Source: Diamond Select]
