While we admit to only becoming excited about the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man” after seeing the latest trailer, but we’ve been looking forward to Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Select versions of Spidey and the Lizard since first laying eyes on them at San Diego Comic Con and Toy Fair 2012, respectively. Since we still don’t have either of these in our possession (yet), we’ll just have to settle for these latest photos of the figures in their huge-ass Marvel Select packaging!
Read on for photos of Spider-Man and the Lizard, along with all the info straight from Diamond Select Toys!
The packaging for Diamond Select Toys “Select”-scale toy lines is… pretty big. Okay, it’s really big. But that’s because it has to be!
Ten years ago, DST designed their packaging to show off their 7-inch scale Marvel figures along with their killer display bases — like the upcoming 6.75″ Spider-Man figure from The Amazing Spider-Man, who comes with a wall-mountable awning to perch on. Nowadays, they alternate their regular figures with larger characters, like the upcoming movie-style Lizard, who takes up most of the space in his blister even without a display base! Plus, because DST’s Select packaging hasn’t changed in ten years, that means your newest Marvel Select figures will look great next to every other Select figure in your collection. They even have side art for easy shelf storage and reference! The movie Lizard figure will be out at comic shops and online retailers next Wednesday — Spider-Man will follow in early June — and they’ll look just as good in their packaging as they do out of the box and standing on your desk!
