ASK DST #320: Marvel Select

It’s a new Ask DST, where Diamond Select Toys president DSTChuck answers your questions about the topic of the day! Today’s topic is “Marvel Select action figures,” and everyone has questions about the long-running (14 years!) toy line. DSTChuck took a break from planning out 2017 to answer your letters, so read on, and submit your own questions in the drop-down form above, or by sending him an e-mail!

Spencer X.
will you be making any cosmic dead pool /captain uni-pool /captain deadverse, figure from dead pool vs thanos #4 comic, as a limited or slandered figure.
Were the uni-power gives dead pool captain universe’s powers?
Pic can be provided if needed.
I think this would be a cool idea as in the comic he says after getting told no payment, “I’m a reasonable guy, how about 60% of the profit on my pool captain variant action figure?”

DSTChuck: For sure, there is lots of cool Deadpool stuff out there we could do, but I’m not sure yet what 2017 will hold.


Nicholas G.
You have such a great line of Marvel Select figures, I was wondering (more like begging you) if you could make Bullseye, Kingpin, and Jigsaw to go with your Daredevil, Punisher, and Elektra figures. Also, it would be awesome to get some figures based on the Daredevil TV show. Also, what about the Guardians of the Galaxy. Those would make some awesome additions to your Marvel Select line! I would preorder all of those the moment they were announced.

DSTChuck: With a new GoG movie on the horizon, I think it’s very likely you will see something from Select next year. As for DD, we’ll just have to see.


Eseban X.
I got a pretty decent collection of marvel select but I’m frustrated you’ve never made any x force or more x men figures I REALLY WISH YOU COULD DO A PSYLOCKE FIGURE or also any other one related to the comics or the movies .

DSTChuck: Psylocke and Rogue are near the top of the list of any figure we would consider.


Tomas B.
Hi! I’m a great fan of Marvel Select and I’m wondering if Alpha Flight is in your plans. It would be amazing if you start releasing figures of the classic formation back in the 80’s. And one more thing, have you guys ever considered (for 2017) a repaint of Phoenix with the classic costume / Dark Phoenix variant?

DSTChuck: Right now, sorry, we are not planning a new Phoenix figure or a batch of Alpha Flight.


Felipe X.
Hello Chuck, Any chance of having an extra head of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (RDJ) to the Civil War Select figures?

DSTChuck: We have been able to offer variant figures in the past, but I’m not sure if it will all work out this time. We’ll see.


JJoc X.
First off, I love both your Star Trek Starships and your Marvel figures. Would you consider combining the two and make a Shield Helicarrier? It would be awesome! I think it would be successful enough to make other Helicarriers from Captain America and even the “Bus” from Agents of Shield. I don’t know if you have the rights to make them. Maybe you could toss the idea around? Thanks for all you do and keep up the good work!

DSTChuck: We are not allowed to make vehicles for Marvel, unfortunately.


Ryan S.
Will there ever be a reissue of the Moon Knight select figure? He is my favorite super-hero but I’m not paying $110+ for him on eBay.

DSTChuck: I think we never say never at DST, but it’s not planned at this moment.


Adam Z.
Hi, i was just wondering if you guys will ever get around to making movie and tv show adaptations of any character: the tv show version of daredevil, movie deadpool, movie x-men figures, movie black panther etc.

DSTChuck: Right now, we have no plans to make products for the Fox movies, but you never know what the future will hold. With three new Marvel movies every year, I think in order to cover them completely that would be about all we do.


Martin H.
Hello and greetings from Germany. I want to ask you about some Movie-Based Figures you are planning in the near Future. Is there any Chance for a Movie-Based Scarlet Witch and Vision? I’m sure that lots of Fans would love to complete the Avengers and with all the Movies at the Moment it should be the perfect Time to make you’re Customers happy :-). Sorry for my bad English, I hope you know what I’m talking about :-)

DSTChuck: I think the answer is pretty much the same as stated above. So many cool characters from these movies we could not do, and I’m not sure how we could ever cover them all.


Jose F.
Hello DST am a fan of his action figures and I wonder if in some future project figure of Black Bolt, Sentry or Gladiator, also would like to know if there is the possibility of a Reissue Warmachine or Agent Venom.Por other side I would like to see a version of Logan as Weapon – X as the comic or a Pack of Uncanny X-force.I hope you can answer my questions and continue doing so great figures.

DSTChuck: We do ask Disney from time to time if they are OK with their exclusives being released to other stores, so there is hope for Agent Venom. As for the rest, we have not planned out 2017 yet, so it’s possible I suppose.


Dave C.
Hey DST Chuck!
I just recently got the Disney Store Ant-Man and I have to say this is one of my favorite movie figures you guys have done next to Thor from Age of Ultron. The detail and likeness is just impressive. My wife even asked if that was the Phoebe’s husband!
I am eagerly waiting to get the Civil War figures and build that awesome backdrop!
On to the questions:
1.) I was wondering if there was any chance to see a Scarlet Witch, Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel, Phoenix figures in 2017. I would love to see more female figures in the line.
2.) Any plans for a new Wolverine? Love the old one but you guys have killed the past few years and I would love to see Avenging Hawkeye level brought to Logan. In that same line, a new Daredevil would be awesome!
3.) Have you guys ever considered Prof. X? A cerebro base would be amazing!
4.) Any plans for classic Spidey villains like Vulture, Dr. Octopus and Hobgoblin?
5.) Fantastic Four – any plans to finish them?
Looking forward to future figures and as always thanks for the amazing line of figures!

DSTChuck: High praise from your wife, indeed.
1) More females, yes, but the ones you are asking about I’m not so sure of.
2) Right now there are so many new characters planned from the movies and comics, we are not planning a new Wolverine at this time.
3) WAY back in the day he was considered, but it’s been a bit of a time since he showed up on the short list.
4) We do love Spidey here, but not sure about those in 2017.
5) Sorry, right now we have no plans for Select FF figures.
