Dagger's Pics of The Disney Store Marvel Select Classic THOR

Postby Dagger » Mon Aug 22, 2011 7:09 pm

Marvel Select Classic Thor. I was very excited to get this guy in the mail. Now that I have him in hand take a scroll down to see my thoughts if you'd like. :)

Details of the Package. Character art is from a classic comic I believe it's from Thor 272.
ImageImage
One thing I noticed is the art for the card has all Heroic age drawings of Thor except The Thor 272 cover. A little weird since this is the Classic Thor, but whatever it's just the card art.
Image
More previews of what's to come
Image
Moon or Rock base front and Back
ImageImage
Mjolnir, okay honestly I'm a bit disappointed with this version of Mjolnir. It's very simple and basic. Not saying I could do a whole lot better, but (as you'll see in subsequent pictures) there are much better ones.
ImageImage
The obligatory Thor 272 cover shot. :)
Image
Up close and personal of the top half of Thor. I'm really not crazy about the expression. I think it would've been awesome if he was screaming like on the 272 cover.
Image
The Crotcheral region. At least they did a wash on the pants.
Image
Here is where I think the figure is excellent. The cape. They really did a great job on the flow of the cape and just making look very Regal
Image
Here's a pic of all the Mjolnirs I have. maybe you'll catch a sneak preview of my next review
Image
Mjolnirs Unite
Image
Classic and Modern side by side comparison. Very close in size.
Image
Marvel Select vs Marvel Legends
Image
And there puny, but awesome friend joins in
Image
Ultimate Thor wanted to check in.
Image
What the heck. Someone mentioned this in my Hawkeye review. The scale is a bit off.
Image

Even with it's flaws I'm glad it joined in the ranks. I will hopefully be reviewing Cap and Widow once they are released depending on funds, but most likely. :D













If you didn't catch the sneak preview of my next review. I'll be less subtle

I really like your reviews Dagger. I have to say that I am really disappointed with this fig. I think it looks kinda terrible in comparison to some of the others I've seen. How are the joints and such on it?

The Joints are about the same as the Modern Age Thor Marvel Select figure. They're what you'd expect from a figure of this size.

You're reviews are really good. The hammer does seem really basic for such a big figure and that expression is so neutral it could be a 80s heman figure lol

your reviews have been a great resource and talked me out of this fig, no offense to anyone, except the manufacturer (please do better, more quantity is not as important as quality). I really love that ultimate thor hammer, you wouldn't happen to have an extra do you? or want to get yours casted? great reviews keep up the great work.
