The Mighty Thor Returns to the Disney Store and Marvel Shop with a New Exclusive Hulk Figure from @CollectDST!
September 12, 2017

As the highly anticipated film Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok heads towards theaters, fans have been hungry for more Thor products, including more of the Disney Store-exclusive Marvel Select Mighty Thor action figure. Now, with Ragnarok looming, Thor makes his prophecied return, alongside a brand-new, Disney Store-exclusive Marvel Select figure by Diamond Select Toys! That’s right, Thor has brought a friend from work back with him, and Planet Hulk is landing on Earth in October!

This exclusive figure of Planet Hulk depicts him in his gladiator armor from the character-redefining “Planet Hulk” storyline in The Incredible Hulk comics. Rocketed toward an extra-terrestrial paradise by Marvel’s greatest heroes, Hulk instead crash-lands on the cruel planet Sakaar, where he is forced to fight in the arenas for the enjoyment of the crowd. The figure stands approximately 10 inches tall (11.5 inches with his feather crest) and features 16 points of articulation, allowing him to strike a wide variety of combat-ready poses. Accessories include an 8-inch-long battle axe and a 5-inch tall spiked shield.

Wearing his Marvel NOW! outfit, the Mighty Thor comes with his hammer Mjolnir, an alternate unhelmeted head, and a larger accessory piece representing his spinning hammer. Plug it into his hand to make it look like he’s about to hurl Mjolnir into battle – or hurl himself into the air! The Asgardian God of Thunder stands 8 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Both figures were sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and both come packaged in display-ready packaging with comic artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

Pre-orders for Planet Hulk will open on September 12, 2017 at marvelshop.com and disneystore.com, and figures will be available at U.S. Disney Store locations by October 2. Later in October, the figure will also become available in European Disney Stores, as well as through disneystore.eu.

Mighty Thor and Planet Hulk join the roster of exclusive Marvel Select figures at the Marvel Shop and Disney Store, including Star-Lord, Groot, Drax, Gamora with Rocket, Spectacular Spider-Man, Avenging Captain America, Black Widow, Black Panther and Bleeding Edge Iron Man.

Daniel Pickett
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.
