I'm a big fan of Diamond's Marvel Select line. Many of their more recent releases have been among some of the best action figures out there. But, that being said, this set is pretty much a giant, steaming turd.
If there's one thing that is very much needed in the Marvel Select line it's a new version of comic book Spidey-- and here was the perfect opportunity for Diamond to do just that, but they didn't. This is the same old crappy Spider-Man that we got years and years ago. And, to make things worse, much of of the Electro figure is based on archaic MS figure parts, too.
While I get that this is mainly an impulse buy item for kids and parents who visit the Disney Store, it would have been nice to see Diamond maintain their upward momentum with the Marvel Select line, but sadly, this is something I would have expected to see on store shelves when the line was still in its infancy.
This set will be out on Sept 9th but is available now on shop.marvel.com for $49.99
