From The Avengers Movie, Hawkeye is the Next Marvel Select Figure!
January 27, 2012

The Avengers movie is almost upon us, and Diamond Select Toys is building up the team in their Marvel Select action figure line! First up is the Avengers’ newest recruit and the world’s greatest marksman, Hawkeye! Based on the likeness of actor Jeremy Renner, this 7-inch-scale Marvel Select figure comes with his trademark bow and arrows, and will look perfect alongside your other Select Avengers. Plus, he features 16 points of articulation, for a variety of action poses!

Not shown is Hawkeye’s detailed display base — it combines with the base of our mystery movie villain figure to create a scene from the movie, and everything comes in oversized collector packaging, so you can show off the figure without opening it. But Hawkeye is only available on the specialty market, so pre-order him today through your local comic shop or favorite online retailer, and expect him to hit stores sometime in May.

Avengers Movie Hulk and the movie’s mystery villain are also available for pre-order now, and Thor, Loki, WWII Captain America and the Red Skull are in stores now! Info about Avengers Movie Iron Man coming soon!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
