Diamond Select Toys continues their Marvel Zombie villains collection this month with the second release in the series, Sabretooth. Fans of Marvel Zombies know that Disney has put a restriction that no one can make hero zombies such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Thor, and others as the company does not want their heroes associated as zombie villains. While that is their right to do, the fact that not even the heroes were shown in Secret Wars: Marvel Zombies, and Marvel Zombies Vs. Ultron comic book mini-series is what is disturbing us the most about this. It’s as if the heroes were never turned into zombies and only the villains were affected. While toys and busts are one thing, comics are another and Disney have put themselves in the way of allowing the comic creators to do their thing when it comes to zombie heroes. This is what ruined both books for us.
New York Comic-Con is coming up and DST should be revealing the next Marvel Zombies Minimates and Select Figure at anytime. We are anxiously awaiting the reveals and hopeful that one of the characters are Juggernaut. Sabretooth was sculpted by Phil Ramirez.
Availability: September 2015
Sculpt & Paint:
Sabretooth is an all-new sculpted figure and includes a damaged piece of Green Goblin’s Glider sculpted on the base. The figure features a detailed and distinctive sculpt with rotten flesh as shown in the comics, a claw mark on his chest, bite marks on his arms and legs, and a pivoting jaw with blood splattered all over his face. His eyes are white and soulless, and his teeth look razor sharp ready to munch on the living.
Sabertooth is sculpted in his yellow and brown costume, with a beige mane and hair. His lower right leg has the most rotten flesh damage and all you see is the flesh with a some of the costume remaining.
The base is based on the aftermath of the zombies battle with Galactus, and features a piece of Green Goblin’s Glider split in half on the street. The Green Goblin was one of the characters killed during the Galactus fight, and if you recall, Magneto included his arm.
ball-jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, swivel torso, ball-socket hips, swivel-hinged thighs, double-hinged knees, hinged ankles.
Zombie Sabretooth is an excellent sculpted and detailed figure and a great addition to the Marvel Select Marvel Zombies line.
