Marvel Select Marvel Now! Thor Marvel Shop Exclusive Figure Review

Marvel Select Marvel Now Thor Marvel Shop Exclusive Figure 09

 

Diamond Select Toys released Marvel Now! Thor exclusively through Marvel Shop in February and The Disney Store starting March 2nd.

For those of you that purchased him at the Marvel Shop, and have a Marvel Unlimited Plus Membership with the 10% discount, this can be used on this figure and others. Unfortunately for our membership, there is some kind of technical glitch linked to our account and the Marvel Store has to check the membership status from Marvel (since they are separate divisions) to make sure that we are a Plus Member to get the discount. While at the top of the screen it states that the discount will be applied, it’s not. And we have to go through hoops just to save 10%. Sadly, even after we placed the order after almost two weeks dealing with this, Marvel Shop still has not applied the discount to our order and refunded the difference. To be fair, we have [yet] another call into them so hopefully this will be rectified soon. If you have a membership and are going through a similar experience, make sure that you are logged into your Marvel account when placing an order so they can track it. Otherwise, you’re out of luck.

What drew us to this figure, is not the new costume, since we already have many Marvel Select and Marvel Legends Thor figures from the past two decades, is the spinning hammer effect that’s never been offered before. This accessory alone makes the figure stand out compared to what’s come before and is well worth the $24.99 asking price.

Availability: February 2015 at Marvel Store, March 2nd, 2015 at Disney Store

Sculpt & Paint:

Thor is based on his Marvel Now! costume from the comics and really looks like he’s just out of the pages. His costume is painted dark grey with a rustic look, silver armored legs, and a red cape with some black wash. There are also some more detailed parts of the costume including the leather belt, belt buckle, shoe buckles, spiked wrist guards, helmet, and a highly detailed hammer, and hammer spinning effect. He also includes a second head that’s un-helmeted, with long blonde hair.

The figures face and arms also have a dark wash over the skin, which brings out the details a bit more. The figure is big and bulky, and packs quite the punch with that spinning hammer.

Articulation:

Standard for Marvel Select.

Accessories:

Figure base, alternate head, alternate right hand, hammer, spinning hammer effect.

Overall:

The accessories and detail are the most that we’ve seen from any Thor figure that’s come before, and we have to say that this is The Thor figure to own.

Highly Recommended.
