Art Asylum and Diamond Select Toys have notified us that the following items are in stores this week.
If it’s Wednesday, it must be New Toy Day! Diamond Select Toys has a couple of new products shipping to comic shops this week — both of them Marvel Comics-based — and there’s also an actual comic book they want you to check out! It’s not Marvel, but it’s quite possibly the awesomest comic you will read this week. Let’s see what’s coming out!
Marvel Select Ultron
Watch out, Avengers — Ultron has arrived! Designed and sculpted by Gentle Giant, this 7-inch figure depicts the classic Avengers villain in all his robotic glory. Ultron was built with 16 points of articulation, so he can strike menacing and/or victorious poses over the fallen forms of Ant-Man and the Wasp on his display base. He comes packaged in our deluxe Select packaging, suitable for in-package display and with keen side art for shelf storage.
Silver Surfer Metal Bottle Opener
Galactus may hunger, but he’ll need a tall beverage to wash down that planet he just ate! Luckily, there’s this handy-dandy Silver Surfer bottle opener to pop open the top of his grape Nehi! Standing nearly 6 inches tall, this metal opener depicting Norrin Radd, surfer of the spaceways, has the same chrome finish as Galactus’ most famous herald. Simply holding it in your hand makes you feel like a devourer of worlds!
Battle Beasts #3 (IDW Publishing)
Based on the upcoming toy line from DST, it’s Battle Beasts #3 from IDW! The epic invasion of Earth by the Beasts has turned San Francisco into a war zone, and the army has been called in to deal with the situation. Vorin, Merk and Gruntos take their human charges underground, and we catch a glimpse of how their band of brothers was formed. The last chapter before the whisker-rattling finale! Regular cover by Valerio Schiti; 1 in 10 cover (part 2 of a triptych) by Jeff Zornow.
