I still think it's a little weird to see MARVEL items in The Disney Store, but Disney's ownership of the brand has certainly spawned some cool things, and I'm sure we'll be seeing some similarly-rockin' STAR WARS swag popping up in the Store as time goes on. As for Marvel, the latest offerings are some exclusive figures from the MARVEL SELECTS line by Diamond Select Toys. Check out the full details on the HULK UNLEASHED, Flash Thompson as VENOM, and the LIZARD figures below, along with info on a new box set...
"The first figure ( Available NOW - Get it HERE!) is the Savage Hulk (aka HULK UNLEASHED), a new, modern Hulk based on artist Marc Silvestri's rendering of the character in recent issues of the Incredible Hulk from Marvel Comics. Depicting a more intelligent version of the Hulk than previous Select offerings, this figure was sculpted by frequent Marvel Select contributor Jean St. Jean, and stands over 9 inches tall with 16 points of articulation."
"The next figure is the Lizard, the longtime foe of Spider-Man and his opponent in this past summer's Amazing Spider-Man movie. While the Marvel Select line has given us the Lizard as he appeared in the film, this all-new sculpt by Gabriel Marquez (who did MS Magneto) is the line's first rendering of Dr. Curt Connors based on his classic comic-book appearance. Sporting 16 points of articulation, including double-jointed knees, he stands over 8 inches tall (when not crouching to attack an innocent human) and comes with a New York City street display base."
FLASH THOMPSON as VENOM:
"The third new Marvel Select figure is Flash Thompson as Venom! Flash Thompson is not only the latest host to wear the Venom symbiote, he's also the one with the most training. A decorated soldier before he lost his legs in the Middle East, Flash uses the Venom suit to undertake dangerous missions for the government, and to complete his missing limbs. This 7-inch figure, also by St. Jean, comes with two weapons and 16 points of articulation and comes packaged with a wreckage-strewn display base."
SPIDER-MAN FEARSOME FOES Box Set:
"For those of you just starting your Marvel Select collection, both the Lizard and Venom will also come packaged in the first-ever Marvel Select box set! The Spider-Man: Fearsome Foes box set includes Spider-Man, Lizard, Venom and the Green Goblin, and this set, like the individual figures, is only available at the Disney Store, as well as at MarvelStore.com and DisneyStore.com."
