Tags: , ,
It’s that time again, the time when Diamond Select Toys president DSTChuck answers all of your questions! This week ,Chuck is tackling your Marvel questions, including Marvel Select and Marvel Gallery, so read on to see if yours is answered – if not, it may appear in a future installment, or you can submit your own new question in the form above. Or you can e-mail us!

Paul D.
When will movie Doctor Strange hit stores? Will there be a Disney Store variant?

DSTChuck: We always aim to get movie toys in stores as close to the movie as possible. However, the development time needed and the reference we need to have makes that a tricky deal. We would love to have it in stores by the end of the year. No variant is planned at this time.

Hi guys. Just wanted to say I love what you’re doing with your femme fatales line; particularly with the marvel heroines. So my question is if you guys are planning to do a femme fatales lineup with the female x-men characters from the animated series at all? I’d particularly would like to see what your designs for a jean grey femme fatales figure would look like. Jean is one of my favorite marvel characters, and one of my favorite x-men in general. Anyways you guys keep up all the good work your doing so far with the marvel femme fatales lineup. You haven’t disappointed me with them. Thanks.

DSTChuck: Right now, the line does not include the older animated shows, but they could in the future. We have not looked into it at this point.

Hello. I see that DST made an exclusive retro Mego styled Captain America for ThinkGeek. Will there be more exclusives from this line? It would be so awesome if DST could make a first appearance whisker-masked Wolverine and add a Mego Hulk. I’m sure many collectors would buy this set if made.

DSTChuck: Our sales team has a list of possible exclusives that they have been pitching since the line began, so it’s certainly possible another one could happen, but none at this time.


Augusto B.
Hey guys, have you wondering about Rogue and Jean Grey ?! It’s time, don’t you think ?
All the best! =D

DSTChuck: Love both those characters, but what product line are you asking to have them in?


Ross H.
First off is like to thank you for making the marvel select line. Amazing sculpt, accessories and paint!
Second, do you guys have a vision planned? A comic vision that is. He seems to be the only avenger I desperately need. Thanks!

DSTChuck: Right now we do not have a vision planned for 2017, but you never know. There was a point a couple years ago when we started to work up some designs, but it didn’t work out. I would think he would happen at some point.


Felipe Q.
Any plans on releasing Loki for the movie Thor 3? Thanks

DSTChuck: We have not seen enough about that movie yet to make a decision. With the movies, though, I can tell you there is NO way we can make every character we would like to make.

Hi, I have just entered the Diamond Select world and have really fallen in love with the Marvel select line. There are some excellent figures. Two I still do not have that I consider top notch figures in the line are Redskull and Rhino. They are great examples of excellent molds along with great attention to detail. I know you said that Rhino was not discontinued so ruling out another release is always a possibility like Carnage and Venom. What about Redskull? Is he a possibility or will we have to wait on a future Captain America movie to get another great example of Redskull? Also, I know you have a limited number of releases per year but are the re-release like Venom and Carnage counted against you on your quota or are those separate? Thank you for your time and effort, I really love your products

DSTChuck: I am sorry to say it’s highly unlikely we will ever re-make any of the past movie figures – but never say never.


Luke D.
I do not remember if this question has been asked but is there a chance for a rerelease of Mephisto?
Now for general questions about possible future releases.
I know with the Cinematic Universe and the comics there are tons of possibilities when choosing what figures to create and put out. With Spider-Homecoming, I bet we are going to see at least a MCU Spidey, with Guardians maybe one or 2 Guardians, and Thor Ragnorak maybe the new version of Thor and Hulk. I guess my question would be concerning the movie based figures but of some of the comic book versions that will appear in these films. For example:
Has there been any talk or is there a possibility of seeing a figure for Executioner in his comic book form?
And what about a Planet Hulk?

DSTChuck: A possible re-release of Mephisto has not been ruled out. We have released comic versions around the same time as movie releases in the past, and I would think we might do that again BUT it would not likely be a character like Executioner.


John Z.
Are there any plans to re-release the Marvel Select Spectacular Spider-Man?

DSTChuck: I would expect at some point there will be another production run.


Boogeyman R.
