Many of you may have already seen the Marvel Select Captain America in our New York Toy Fair 2011 coverage, but we now have an official image along with some new information about Diamond Select’s upcoming first Avenger collectible figure.
A Diamond Select Release! Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios! The best-selling Marvel Select line is proud to add another of the Marvel movie franchises to its lineup! This time the movie Captain America, The First Avenger makes its Marvel Select debut! Based on the likeness of actor Chris Evans from the upcoming summer 2011 blockbuster, this movie-accurate Captain America figure includes Marvel Select’s standard 16 points of articulation. As an added bonus, the figure comes packaged with part of a display stand that can be combined with the base from the Red Skull movie figure (sold separately) to form a diorama, recreating a key scene from the movie!
Look for it to be released by May 2011 with a SRP of $21.99.
Two things of interest to note. Marvel Selects have gone up in price from $19.99 to $21.99 (no biggie). Fans can also expect a Marvel Select Red Skull figure as well. No image of this figure currently exist.
