Diamond Select Toys is first out of the gate announcing figures for the upcoming Ant-Man movie from Marvel Studies, with the Marvel Select Ant-Man (or should that be Ant-Men?)
Exclusive: Get Your First Look At Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ Action Figures
Small hero, big toys.
Marvel’s newest cinematic superhero “Ant-Man” may be small, but his upcoming movie is getting a HUGE push from the studio. Which means toys, and lots of them. And today MTV News is pleased to bring you the first look at Diamond Select Toys‘ awesome action figure for the film — well, actually, action figures, plural.
MTV broke the news. You can get more details here: Exclusive: Get Your First Look At Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ Action Figures – MTV.

In just a couple of weeks, it will have been two years since Hasbro first showed us the Wrecker and Bulldozer, and gave Wrecking Crew fans the hope of completing that foursome in their Marvel Legends collections. We had gotten Thunderball and Piledriver as variant swaps in an earlier wave, and the plan was to do the same for the remaining pair by the middle of 2013.
But while the Wrecker made it to shelves, retailers threw Hasbro a curveball, necessitating a rebranding plan to tie Marvel Legends more closely to the Marvel movies. And we’ve been waiting for the fourth and final member of the Wrecking Crew ever since.
This begs the question – did Hasbro already miss their best chance to release the Marvel Legends Bulldozer?

Today’s Entertainment Earth Daily Deal is for Marvel Select action figures – they’re up to 40% off, and there’s 29 different figures for sale. I’m a fan of some of the bigger guys in the line, and a lot of them are in the sale. Thor, Colossus, Thing, Juggernaut, Dr. Doom… the list goes on and on.
The sale is for today (January 10) only, so get your orders in while you can. I imagine some of these figures will sell out today. Happy shopping!
Mezco kicks off our weekend with a closer look at their upcoming One:12 Collective Judge Dredd. We got our first look at the One:12 Dredd at New York Comic Con. It’s great to see another look at the details, but I am still wondering how the fabric apps will hold up on the figure with more action-oriented poses. The Dark Knight Batman is further along in development, and that’s looking pretty good so far.
When we talked to Mez at San Diego Comic-Con, he said they were developing a 1/12 scale Lawmaster to go with this figure. I really hope that comes to fruition. The One:12 Judge Dredd is up for pre-order at Mezco for $65.

While we’re talking about 3A Toys, they recently shared pics of the 3A Toys booth at Toy Soul show in Hong Kong. I’ve reposted a few here, including their upcoming 1/12 scale Judge Death. It’s interesting that 2000 A.D. has a couple concurrent licensing deals. In addition to 3A, Mezco showed off their 1/12 scale Judge Dredd at NYCC. It’ll be interesting to see how much overlap there’ll be between the two licensees, both of whose figures I love.
All I can say is that neither company is making these figures fast enough for my liking, although the 3A Toys Judge Death does go up for pre-order next week. While it’s beautiful, I’m not sure if it’s a must-buy for me – I’m still plenty pleased with the Judge Death we got a few years ago in Legendary Comic Book Heroes from Marvel Toys (Toy Biz).
