figma Spider-Man shows off his sparkly outfit
by Tianxiao Ma

figma Spider-Man is coming out later this month, so the figma blog has a preview of what you'll be getting. Generally I like the aesthetics of figmas, but this is not my favorite figure ever. He's too sparkly and that outfit just looks too busy. Superhero costumes have gotten the ultra-textured treatment for the big screen but I'm not a fan of it on this scale.

The figure comes with a few accessories such as a cell phone, backpack, and pieces to simulate him shooting his webs. As you can see from the gallery, he's also a natural candidate for use with the Nendoroid more suction cup stands.

DST announces Marvel Select photo contest winners photo
DST announces Marvel Select photo contest winners
by Scarecroodle

Back in August, Diamond Select Toys announced that it would be holding a Marvel Select-themed photo contest with a number of prizes which included MS prototypes, rare variants, and the such. The results are in and apparently the Rhino has charged to victory, being the subject of both Ryan Vasquez's winning photo (see header) and first runner-up (a.k.a. second place) Earl E. Ware's photo which depicts Rhino stomping on Spider-man. Second runner-up (or third place) went to Geof Le Baron, who shot Marvel Select's Agent Venom being overpowered by the fan-favorite Classic Venom.

Additionally, DST has recognized a number of other entries as being worthy of mention (they're also in the gallery). Personally I was impressed by Emmanuel's beach scene although, given it's an absurdly wide panoramic shot, I can understand why it didn't win for practicality reasons. However, I'd encourage you to download that one and just zoom in on each section since it's pretty creative. Fred also deserves some props for going all out with his rogues' gallery scene since he has NINE figures in there (including Deadpool peeking through a window) and it looks like it's all just DST-created Marvel Select merchandise which makes it a great showcase for the line's offerings.

Be sure to check out the gallery for all the photos and let us know who you think should have won.
