Marvel Select Action Figures
The Select line was introduced in 2002 by Diamond Select Toys, working in collaboration with Toy Biz. After Toy Biz became Marvel Toys in 2007, the line is now designed and produced exclusively by Diamond Select.
The figures were aimed at collectors rather than children, and concentrated on highly detailed sculpts and elaborate display bases rather than articulation.
The figures are made to a strict 7” scale, with each figure presented with a large base on which to display it. Often these bases can also include other figures, and can resemble dioramas including parts of buildings as backdrops.
The character designs were initially based on titles such as the Ultimate Marvel series, making them more realistic and less cartoon-like in their appearance.
Some figures are more articulated than others, depending on their design, and the emphasis for the line in general is on display rather than active play.
