Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is in theaters this weekend, so what better time to showcase the awesome 7 inch figures from Diamond Select Toys! DST announced the Sin City license earlier this year, and they have a wide array of stuff including drinkware, Minimates, games, and Select action figures. The Select figures follow the Marvel style with large bubble packaging and intricate display bases. These follow the Sin City motif with a black and white theme, though they are actually varying shades of blue-gray which works well. Read on to check our thoughts and photo session with Marv, Hartigan and Nancy after the break!
Diamond Select Toys Sin City Select Marv, Nancy and Hartigan
Blue/Gray tones to mimic the black and white of books/movie pops
Diorama bases are well done
Sculpts are solid, mix of photo real and artistic
Sculpted dynamic jackets limit poseability
These are a nice addition to any Sin City fan’s shrine for sure. Figures are well done and capture the essence of the movie well with the black and white tones. Dios provide movie specific reference points but could easily be used elsewhere. Articulation is above average, allowing for most poses you would need, right in line with most Select offerings from Marvel. The sculpted jackets on Hartigan and Marv look great, but limit posing. Nancy’s face doesn’t really capture Jessica Alba’s likeness, but it does the job conveying the character. The attempt at reconciling a g-string was interesting :). Overall happy, any movie or Sin City shelf will welcome them. The SDCC bloody version of Marv also really pops, throwing in contrasting red splatter. These guys should be in your local comic shops and online retailers now, grab em if you dig em!
