Diamond Select Toys Has Marvel Minimates and Marvel Select from Thor: the Dark World

Marvel Minimates - Thor the Dark World 1 Marvel Select - Thor the Dark World 1

We’re a little over a month away from Thor: the Dark World, and if you’re jonesing for toys, then Diamond Select Toys has got you covered – they’ve got Thor Minimates and Marvel Select figures on the way.

Minimates allows them to go pretty wide – not just the main guys in Thor, Malekith, and Loki, but they’ve got a Dark Elf army builder, Eric Selvig, and and Darcy Lewis represented. Kat Dennings fans rejoice! I’m surprised at Darcy but no Jane Foster – I’m guessing she’ll show up at big box retail, as this series is headed to comic book and specialty retailers.

Jane will definitely make an appearance with Thor in the Marvel Select line. The figures will be sold separately but will each have bases that connect to form a diorama for the figures. Are we supposed to call that BAD (build-a-diorama)?
