I coulc not believe these two new Marvel Select figures that dropped recently, two classic Marvel characters that aren’t really in the forefront of the entertainment/movie industry currently. I was particularly amazed by this oversized Apocalypse with extra fists and three arm/weapon accessories. Sometimes Marvel Select nails it, and this is one of those instances. I had just picked up the Hasbro Marvel Legends Apocalypse, but this figure is another thing all together…
This Super Skrull in Black Bolt/Inhumans outfit was a surprise- Secret Invasion was back in 2008, but Marvel Studios is currently producing a series of the storyline for Disney+. Along with a somewhat inexplicable four sets of hands, a Black Bolt head was included, with sonic effect accessory that fits into SkrullBolt’s open mouth. Fantastic!
Among the array of extra hands that came with Super Skrull were a gripping pair with nothing to hold- I remembered the McFarlane Accessory Pack that arrived in February, which included the perfect sci-fi laser pistol for this figure …!
Marvel Select has released some fantastic new figures recently, which I have been happy with by and large. The Super Skrull has a lot going for it, in spite of some loos joints, but the Apocalypse it outstanding- I was seriously impressed with this big, beautiful figure! Recommended!
More Later- Make It FUN!
