Marvel Select - CAPTAIN MARVEL!

Marvel Select - Captain Marvel (MCU Red Version) - Diamond Select Toys 2019

I think the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel suit is one of the coolest modern costume upgrades in a long time. I love how it has all the features of the original Mar-Vell's design, blends it with the classic Ms. Marvel look, then gives it modern edge with a more techy helmet and mohawk. And I also think it's one of the most successful looks to be translated into the live-action universe. It's often hard to tell if a product is representing the comic or MCU style. when we received the Marvel Select Starforce Captain Marvel in her green suit last year, I think we all knew this classic-colored re-issue was inevitable. I was considering skipping this purchase due to sheer repetition in my collection, but when I saw her in person (in the Disney Store) I found her hard to resist. I figure it won't be long until we get a slew of products featuring her Avengers Endgame design (which I think it the same costume sculpt, just different coloring and a bad haircut). I already predict I will cave and buy more. Let's check out Carol below!

Captain Marvel comes with Two Heads, Five Pairs of Hands, Four Energy Pieces, and Goose the Cat.

She also comes with several display bases: Two seemingly identical clear flight stands, and a solid black standing base.

Yet another movie-style unhelmeted head that looks nothing like Brie Larson.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is next to her green Starforce version from earlier in 2019.

  1. Cool figure though I think I'm all Captain Marveled out. Like the character and the movie. Now how about a Carol Danvers Binary figure.
