Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum have announced the next Marvel Select action figure for the 2012 line-up, a classic version of the Avengers villain Ultron. This could be a Marvel Select figure that will be a definite must-have for me. This is one of those cases where a little taller Ultron figure may still fit in with my Marvel Legends display. I’m still going to have to wait to see it in person before I decide to buy though. What do you think, is this a must-have for you too? Here’s the official DST write-up for Ultron:
Its a fact that Diamond Select’s good friends over at Gentle Giant have been dying to design an Ultron action figure for them for close to two years now. Since the character has always been an awesome-looking villain, DST has been willing to add it to the line, but they could never find the right place for it in their schedule. Well, with everyone talking about the Avengers’ big movie, DST is giving Gentle Giant the opportunity to bring the Avengers’ big bad to life this August. With Jason Wires behind the paintbrush, theyre sure youll be pleased with the outcome although Ant-Man and the Wasp clearly aren’t, judging by the 7-inch Ultron’s detailed display base.
