Toy and collectable maker Diamond Select Toys has a bevy of ‘thunder’ themed items in stores right now from the Thor: The Dark World feature film as well as those lovable mercenaries from the pages of Marvel’s Thunderbolts comics.
Who doesn’t love the Punisher, Elektra, Red Hulk and Deadpool? Nobody? Yep, that’s what I thought. Sure they might not get along the best, or act as a ‘team’ sometimes, but the newest incarnation of the Thunderbolts sure is interesting to watch nonetheless. The new Minimates box set of the group includes the four main characters, well, actually five main characters if you count the fact that you can transform General Ross into Red Hulk with some nifty interchangeable parts.
And if red isn’t your thing, and you’re more inclined towards actual thunder and lightning, you’re probably going to dig the Thor: The Dark World offerings that just hit shelves. Not only do we get Marvel Select figures of Thor and Jane Foster this week, but we also get some awesome looking Minimates from the film and a Mjolnir ice cube tray. Yes, now you too can bring down the hammer… on your favorite beverage. Ooo- or you can make lil’ chocolate Mjolnirs! The possibilities, as they say, are endless.
