The Superior Spider-Man Swings into Disney Stores as the Newest Marvel Select Figure
January 20, 2014

The new Marvel Select Winter Soldier action figure is officially a hit with collectors, and now Diamond Select and the Disney Store have unveiled their next exclusive collaboration! Starting this week, The Disney Store, DisneyStore.com and MarvelStore.com will offer an all-new Marvel Select figure: The Superior Spider-Man!

Capturing Spidey as he appears in recent issues of The Superior Spider-Man, where he has become the unwilling host body to the consciousness of Doctor Octopus, this 7-inch figure features 16 points of articulation and was sculpted by Sam Greenwell. The figure will come packaged with a detailed display base depicting the aftermath of a battle with the Sinister Six, and will arrive on store shelves in the famous, display-ready Marvel Select packaging, with reference artwork of Spider-Man on the spine.

 

 

“It’s a known fact that I’m a huge fan of Spider-Man,” said Diamond Select Toys President Chuck Terceira, “so the opportunity to make a new, more current Spider-Man figure for the Disney Store was a dream come true. Their support of the line makes great figures like this possible, and Sam really knocked this figure out of the park.”

Look for the Superior Spider-Man at DisneyStore.com and MarvelStore.com now, and in your nearest Disney Store soon!

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.
