Marvel Select - THE WASP!

Marvel Select - Ant-Man and the Wasp: The Wasp - Diamond Select Toys 2019

This year is set to be a record-breaking year for female figures in the Marvel Select line. Between now and June we should have a Captain Marvel, Psylocke, and Rogue in addition to this terrific Wasp. Up until now, the most females we've seen in a single year has been three (in 2005 & 2017). And considering the 17-year run of the line, 6 years had no females, and 7 had only one. So having four figures in the first six months is a great sign. It's also pretty amazing how far the quality of these figures has come. Back in the day they tended to be fairly pre-posed with limited (and often awkward) articulation. But now they are right up there (and sometimes better than) Hasbro's Marvel Legends. This Wasp figure is great. The Legends figure was pretty terrific so I wasn't particularly eager for another. But in all honesty, I like this second one better. The wings are nicer, the body seems more cinematic, and I love how smooth the ribcage articulation is (it makes for really dynamic poses). Let's check her out below!

The Wasp comes with two miniature PVC accessories: one of herself and one of Ant-Man.

She also comes with an alternate pair of closed-fist hands (I realize I never even put these on for photos).

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her Marvel Legends version.

And with two other Marvel Select ladies: Storm and Lady Deadpool.



  1. I can't believe they didn't make an unmasked head!

  2. The design of that costume is absolutely fantastic. Evangeline Lilly was an excellent choice.
