The assortment includes four different two-packs, including Thor with Malekith, Loki with Heimdall, and two short-packed, specialty-exclusive sets: Selvig with a Dark Elf and Darcy with a Dark Elf. Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall and includes a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories.

Marvel Select Thor

A Diamond Select Release! Sculpted by Gentle Giant! Thor, the Mighty Avenger, returns to the big screen this fall in Thor: The Dark World, and Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with Gentle Giant to capture his new on-screen look! Standing approximately 7 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, the new figure features the latest Thor costume, straight from the set of The Dark World, and an exacting likeness of Chris Hemsworth. The figure will come packaged with a detailed base that combines with Jane Foster's to re-create a scene from the film. Comes in display-ready Select packaging, complete with side panel art.

Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.

Thor comes with a base to connect with Jane? You know what THAT means...

PHASE 2!!!
ruadh - 4/12/2013, 8:42 AM
Awesome....except Antman is Phase 3.
StrangerX - 4/12/2013, 8:46 AM
Really liking this TTDW look. Phase II is coming together nicely. Btw- Marvel/Disney should really be looking at Chadwick Boseman for Black Panther. He's got the young fresh look and everyone is praising his performance as Jackie Robinson.

Ya never know - we might get a taste of him in Phase 2 =]
PsyGuy - 4/12/2013, 8:51 AM
Im glad they're doing Thor AND Jane Foster! Should be awesome.
ruadh - 4/12/2013, 8:55 AM

Probably...but he's still Phase 3.

Cool but strange that we are getting a Jane figure..I really feel we should have gotten one on Destroyer from Thor 1 and I really feel that was a missed hit figure right there..
IronLantern79 - 4/12/2013, 11:56 AM
Another movie that needs to HURRY UP AND GET HERE!!! ARRRGGHGHHHHHH!!!

@ruadh I have a strong suspicion that Ant-man will be moved into the phase 2 group by the time it comes out.
