Awesome Toy Picks: Marvel Select Thanos

A cool collectible you'll want to add to your collection.

Each week we like to take a cool comic book collectible, open it up and check out what it's really like. Last weekend was WonderCon 2013. If you watched the OmniWalkthrough video, you know I debated over buying the Marvel Select Thanos figure. It's a solid figure. I've been eyeing it for some time. Surprisingly I found a vendor that had a bunch and was selling them for $20. So of course I did finally buy one.

You can see the figure does come with a second 'figure,' Death. Often the Marvel Select figures come with some sort of background piece. In this case, getting a second figure, even one without any real articulation, was the better move.

This figure may not still be sold in stores (comic shops) but you can still easily find it. Even on eBay, they can be found for around $20. It's definitely worth it. Many of today's regular figures cost close to $20 and this one's massive weight shows you you're getting your money's worth.

Even though Death doesn't have any articulation, she does come with a second face so she can look less Death-like.

If you know Thanos, you know he has deep affections for her. You might even say he luuuuvs her.

Thanos has your basic amount of articulation. Because he's a larger figure, there is a good amount of detail. As I mentioned, he is solid. Marvel Select does a great job with their larger figures. They are heavy. You don't have to worry about them breaking as you move them into different positions.

Thanos also comes with a second hand, one with the Infinity Gauntlet. Every Thanos should come with one. And as you can see below, I have a few different Thanos figures. I guess you could say I kind of like the character.

As I was getting the figures ready for their 'photo-shoot,' one of them landed kind of weird. My daughter decided to put them all in dance positions. I mean, why not?

If you like Thanos, it goes without saying you should pick up this figure. For $20, it's a great deal.
