Marvel Select - Captain Marvel (Movie) Starforce - Diamond Select Toys 2019

The Marvel Select line from DST has had an amazing year. This Starforce Captain Marvel marks the fourth Marvel Select female in 9 months. And I only hope the momentum continues. There's potential for so many more great figures. I know we're very likely to see a new Storm and Black Widow next, but I have hopes for so many more. This Starforce Captain Marvel figure is terrific. She's articulated beautifully and the sculpt is great. The only downfall is the unmasked head has pretty lackluster paint apps and looks almost nothing like Brie Larson. This same issue existed the with Marvel Legends figure from Hasbro. Maybe she has a tricky face to scan or a unique color palette that has to be precise to look right, but either way the problem seems to be consistent across multiple product lines. Luckily (for me at least), I could care less about unmasked alternate heads. If a character has a mask or helmet, that's always the way I will want to display her. And Carol's masked head is perfect. Let's check her out below!

Captain Marvel comes with with five pairs of hands, both a masked and unmasked head, and Goose the flerken.

Captain Marvel also comes with three different figure stand options. She has a 2-piece flame base, a multi-jointed clear flight stand with a back peg, and a standard black base for standing.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the smaller Marvel Legends version from earlier this year.

And here she is with two recent Marvel Select ladies: Rogue and Psylocke.

And with my only other MCU Marvel Select figure, Wasp.
