Overview

Marvel Select Odin Destroyer Figure

Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select Odin Destroyer Figure 27

 

The Destroyer is an enchanted suit of armor forged by Odin, and is also a weapon that has been used at times by Loki in an attempt to slay Thor, Odin, and other Asgardians in an attempt to claim the throne for himself. The Destroyer was first introduced to fans in Journey Into Mystery #118 (1965) and created by some of Marvel’s greatest creators, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The armor itself is made out of unknown metal and features vast superhuman strength and is invulnerable to all forms of physical damage, which include high caliber bullets, tremendously powerful impact forces, falls from tremendous heights, exposure to absolute extremes of both temperature and pressure, and powerful energy blasts.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2016, we has a chance to catch up with Jean St. Jean, the sculptor of this incredible figure and a well known and established sculptor. In the interview, we praised Jean for sculpting such an incredible Destroyer figure and the amount of detail introduced here truly makes him one of the greatest Marvel Legends figures of all time. It’s not every year that DST releases a bulkier figure (such as Thing, Hulk, Red Hulk, Hulkbuster Iron Man, Abomination and others) in Marvel Select due to the limitations of figures they are allowed to make each year. You can check out the interview with Jean St. Jean HERE, and just know we do not have updates right now for Creatureplica, which could change at anytime in the future.

Thank you to Diamond Select Toys for providing their Marvel Select 7″ Odin Destroyer figure for review.

Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select Odin Destroyer Figure 05

 

The Destroyer stands at 9″ tall and is based on his appearance in classic Marvel Comics issues. The figure is sculpted with very detailed carvings in the metal suit that are painted in black, and the sides of the arms, torso, legs and center of the shoulder and wrist have spikes sticking out. On either side of the spikes are bolts that are located in the front and back of Destroyer’s torso, arms and legs. The paint of the figure is very well done with metallic light grey, with a hint of dark grey at the center of the chest, and along the bolts on the chest, arms and legs, The dark grey is a wash that is painted over the light grey, which brings out a rustic look for the armor.

The articulation is what you would expected of Marvel Select, with a ball jointed neck, ball jointed shoulder pads, ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed torso, hinged swivel hips, hinged knees, and hinged ankles.
