Diamond Select Toys and Marvelshop.com Announce Exclusive Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man Action Figure!

Diamond Select Toys and Marvelshop.com Announce Exclusive Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man Action Figure!

In one of the most anticipated scenes in Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark goes toe-to-toe with the Hulk in a massive new suit of Iron Man armor, one long-time comic readers may recognize. Dubbed the “Hulkbuster” armor, this massive suit was designed with one purpose in mind – stopping the Hulk in his tracks ­– and now Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have designed a brand-new figure of the famous armor as it appeared in the comics!

First appearing in Iron Man #304, released in 1994, the Iron Man Mk 14 “Hulkbuster” armor was an add-on to Tony Stark’s modular armor, one that would allow him to stop the Hulk from tearing apart a factory that was manufacturing gamma bombs. While the battle was a misunderstanding, Stark kept the armor in case he ever needed it again, and it has occasionally been shown as part of his “Hall of Armor.”

This new, fully poseable action figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and stands 8.5 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Like all Marvel Select action figures, he comes packaged in display-ready packaging with comic artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

Pre-orders are open now at marvelshop.com, and the figure will ship to customers later this summer. It will also be made available at Disney Stores across North America at that time, as well as on disneystore.com.

Hulkbuster Iron Man joins previous marvelshop.com and Disney Store exclusive figures Avenging Hawkeye, Mighty Thor, Unleashed Hulk, Superior Spider-Man, Unmasked Captain America, Bleeding Edge Iron Man and Electro. All are currently available on marvelshop.com and disneystore.com!

Hawkeye Takes Aim With a New Marvel Select Action Figure at Marvelshop.com!

Clint Barton is often dismissed as “the guy with the bow and arrows,” but as one of the few non-powered members of the Avengers, he stands alongside super-soldiers, armored knights and living gods. To honor a man who regularly fights above his weight class, Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have teamed up to create an exclusive, all-new figure of the avenging archer, Hawkeye!

Wearing his newer Marvel NOW! outfit, Avenging Hawkeye comes with his bow, arrows, crossbow pistol, alternate hand, alternate bandaged head and his canine companion Lucky. Lucky was introduced in the 2012 Hawkeye comic series, by Matt Fraction and David Aja, in which Hawkeye dealt with street-level crime in and around his New York City neighborhood.

This new Hawkeye figure was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios, and stands 7 inches tall with 16 points of articulation. Like all Marvel Select action figures, he comes packaged in display-ready packaging with comic artwork down one side, for handy shelf reference.

Look for the figure to make its debut exclusively on marvelshop.com on March 23rd, and to arrive in Disney Stores and on disneystore.com by April 6.

Thor joins previous marvelshop.com exclusive figures Mighty Thor, Unleashed Hulk, Superior Spider-Man, Unmasked Captain America, Bleeding Edge Iron Man and Electro. All are currently available on marvelshop.com and disneystore.com!


Diamond Select Toys and Valiant Debut New X-O Manowar/Bloodshot Minimates Two-Pack – Exclusively at Toys“R”Us®

Diamond Select Toys and Valiant Debut New X-O Manowar/Bloodshot Minimates Two-Pack – Exclusively at Toys“R”Us®

Two of the greatest heroes of the Valiant Universe have stepped into the three dimensional world for the first time with an all-new Valiant MiniMates two-pack from Diamond Select Toys (DST), now available exclusively at Toys“R”Us® stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com! The alien-armored, Visigoth hero X-O Manowar and indestructible commando Bloodshot make their MiniMate debut in a specially designed two-pack that comes complete with both heroes’ signature accessories, alternate parts, and an exclusive, never-before-seen Valiant comic book insert. Each Valiant MiniMates two-pack also includes a free comic book digital download offer, powered by comiXology. 

“Valiant's fans around the world have continuously requested figurines of their favorite characters," said Russell A. Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment. "We are thrilled to bring two of our classic heroes to Toys“R”Us for the first time with Valiant MiniMates, giving fans old and new an opportunity to get to know our exciting line of characters with value added offerings. And, we are delighted to join the ranks of the top intellectual property characters to be represented in MiniMates form.”

“The Valiant Universe is one of the premier comic book universes, with a history of creative storytelling, detailed  character design and fantastic artwork,” said Chuck Terceira, President of Diamond Select Toys. “The fact that it has not had more merchandise has always been a mystery to me, and when the opportunity arose for DST to create some of Valiant’s first collectible toys, we were all excited to be on board.”

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia, the fifth century Visigoth now called X-O Manowar, has never known peace. Abducted and enslaved by the savage alien empire known as The Vine, Aric finally escaped his captors after stealing their ultra-powerful X-O Manowar armor and then returned to Earth…only to find that more than a thousand years had passed in his absence. Stranded in the modern day, the most primitive man on Earth now wields the most powerful weapon in existence as X-O Manowar.

Brought back from the dead and infused with cutting-edge nanotechnology, Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well. But after defying his programming and escaping his captors, Bloodshot now fights to rediscover to the secret of his true identity – but remains haunted by the past that nearly destroyed him.

MiniMates, owned by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, are two inches tall, with 14 points of articulation, and feature multiple interchangeable parts and accessories. They were first released in 2002, and have grown into the largest and most diverse line of block figures in the world. 

Plus, coming to comic book stores this April, don’t miss the X-O Manowar and Bloodshot MiniMates Battle-Damaged two-pack (below) – a Previews-exclusive offering featuring combat-hardened alternative looks for two of Valiant's most formidable heroes, from the best-selling story arcs Harbinger Wars and Planet Death!
