On the teeny-tiny heels of Hasbro’s Comic-Con International-exclusive Ant-Man box set, Marvel and Diamond Select Toys have unveiled a new Scott Lang action figure, available only from MarvelShop.com and Disney Store.
Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and based on the upcoming Marvel Studios film, this Marvel Select Ant-Man kinda-sorta looks like star Paul Rudd. Standing 7 inches tall and featuring 16 points of articulation, it comes with two interchangeable heads (helmted and unmasked), six interchangeable hands, a 1.75-inch shrunken version, and a display stand.
Although you may not be ready to save the galaxy, you will be able to save your change in this Green Lantern battery vinyl bank from Diamond Select Toys.
Standing nearly 12 inches tall, the bank is based on the Green Lantern power battery shown in the Justice League animated series. There’s a coin slot and top and and access door in the base. Presumably you’re required to recite the Green Lantern Oath each time you take own money. Set to arrive in October, it’s available for preorder now.
Coinciding with the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Diamond Select Toys has unveiled the Marvel Select Hulkbuster, available exclusively from the Marvel Shop and Disney Store.
Unlike most of the Hulkbuster action figures we’ve seen over the past few months, this one isn’t inspired by the Iron Man armor seen in the Marvel Studios sequel. Instead, it’s based on the comic-book version, which debuted in 1994 in Iron Man #304.
Diamond Select Toys has announced its first wave of action figures based on the Fox drama Gotham, set to debut in July at Comic-Con International.
“We’re doing a line with no Batman,” Diamond Select President Chuck Terceira said in a statement to TV Insider. “We’ll make a Bruce Wayne, but the show’s magic is that its heroes are the civilian or villain characters who have always surrounded Batman.”
Fans of Hawkeye by Matt Fraction, David Aja & Co. at long last can get that figure they’ve been longing for: Pizza Dog. OK, sure, Hawkguy’s included, but … Pizza Dog!
Apparently, this Marvel Select Avenging Hawkeye figuring has been cropping up in Disney Stores, but now it’s available for order online from the Marvel Shop. Fully poseable, the 7-inch figure features “his classic black costume,” a bow, six arrows, a gun, interchangeable left hand, and two interchangeable heads (one with sunglasses, the other with a bandaged nose, of course).
Lumbering into Toys”R”Us stores next month, the new assortment of Walking Dead Minimates from Diamond Select Toys will feature characters from the “All Out War” story arc of the acclaimed comic series by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard.
Inspired by Adlard’s artwork, each 2-inch minifigure features 14 points of articulation, interchangeable parts and character-specific accessories. The assortment features four two-packs, each with a human paired with a walker. Here’s the character lineup:
Diamond Select Toys is continuing its history of Marvel Minimates with figures based on Avengers: Age of Ultron, unveiled this morning by Toybox.
The collectibles will arrives in the spring in two runs, priced at $10 per pack of two: One features Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, two versions of Hawkeye (old and new costume), Ultron and a “Sub-Ultron.” The other, available from Toys “R” Us, exchanges the two Hawkeye figures for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1.

Diamond Comic Distributors and Diamond Select Toys have announced 22 exclusives for Comic-Con International, ranging from limited-edition variant covers to statues and busts to Minimates.
All of the items will be available, while supplies last, July 24-27 at the Diamond PREVIEWSworld booth (#2401):
Thor’s mythic warhammer Mjolnir can level mountains, emit blasts of mystical energy and even detect illusions. But for those swingin’ parties at Avengers mansion, only those who are thirsty shall possess its mighty power.
Early next year Diamond Select Toys will roll out a series of Marvel-based bottle openers, beginning with — you guessed it! — Thor’s hammer, complete with its legendary inscription: “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”
With it, you’ll be the hit of every party. Well, at least those that don’t feature twist-off caps — or Loki.
His costume is already set to appear next month in the Spider-Man: Edge of Time video game, but Miles Morales will follow that with a Minimate of his very own.
The new Ultimate Spider-Man will join Diamond Select Toys’ line of Marvel Minimates next summer with a 2-inch figure that comes with two heads a removable mask, so you can showcase the character with or without his identity concealed. There’s also a “webline accessory.” The figure will be available exclusively at Toys “R” Us in a two-pack with a classic Spider-Man villain that will be revealed later.
