When I receive messages from new Junkies asking what action figure line is a good one to start with, I have found that I am always pointing them to Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Select line. Why? You simply cannot get more bang for your hard earned buck. DST’s signature oversized library book spine packaging (amazingly helpful for storage) and some of the best sculpts in this price range make the Marvel Select line a must have for collectors. But here’s the kicker: most of them are just $25 on MidtownComics.com making them the ultimate starter kit figures for the “Make Mine Marvel” crowd that is looking for a little something extra in their Select choice.
