Exclusive Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Figure Set Available at Marvelshop.com!



Exclusive Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Figure Set Now Available at Marvelshop.com!

In 1964, The Amazing Spider-Man #9 hit comic book racks, pitting the newly minted superhero against the man who would become one of his most legendary foes: Electro! For 50 years, the electricity-wielding supervillain has gone up against Spider-Man, by himself and as a member of the Sinister Six. And while his costume has occasionally changed – most notably in this summer's movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – the original, iconic lightning-bolt suit has repeatedly returned to the comics page. Now, Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with marvelshop.com to create an exclusive box set featuring Spidey and Electro in their classic outfits!


Starting today, marvelshop.com will be the only place to order the Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro Action Figure Box Set, featuring a comic-style Spider-Man and an exclusive sculpt of Electro in his classic yellow-and-green costume! Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, who has previously created figures of the Superior Spider-Man, Storm and Silver Surfer for the Marvel Select line, Electro stands approximately 7" inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Both will come packaged in a window box with comic-book artwork on the front.


After September 8, the Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro box set will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.

Marvelshop.com carries a wide assortment of Marvel Select action figures, including the exclusive comic-based Savage Hulk figure, the exclusive Winter Soldier action figure, movie-based Unmasked Captain America and Falcon figures (from Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and an Unmasked Spider-Man figure as he appears in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Diamond Select Toys Teams with Kevin Smith on New View Askew Merchandise

Diamond Select Team with Kevin Smith on New View Askew Merchandise

With his library of cult-favorite films and regular geek-centric podcasts through his company SModCo, director and author Kevin Smith is geek royalty, holding court each year in the legendary Hall H at Comic-Con International in San Diego. At this past weekend's Comic-Con, Diamond Select Toys unveiled a number of new products based on Smith's creations, in two new product categories!


At their booth on the show floor, DST displayed several new items from the View Askew universe, including:
- a plush doll of Buddy Christ, the religious icon who appears in many of Smith's films;
- a Mooby ceramic mug, depicting the famous Golden Calf and fast-food mascot;
- two double-sided Jay & Silent Bob and Bluntman & Chronic mugs, capturing Smith's alter egos (and their respective partners in crime) in the animated style of Smith's recent "Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie!"


"Kevin has created so many great characters, and they still resonate with fans after all these years," said DST President Chuck Terceira. "We're very excited to be making fun products based in the world of the View Askewniverse, and Kevin has been a dream come true to work with."

Banks and Minimates mini-figures of Buddy Christ and Mooby are currently available for pre-order, with ship dates in the late summer and early fall. The Buddy Christ plush and various ceramic mugs will be offered to retailers and consumers in the coming months, for an early 2015 release.
