Captain America is about as iconic as they come. He represents the best of humanity and is a hero in every respect.

The Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select Infinity War Captain America figure is very well done. He is a hero in his own right.

He comes in the Marvel Select bubble packaging that we are accustomed to. The figure is well displayed in the packaging and most of the accessories are visible as well. The back of the card gives us a synopsis of Infinity War and a brief description of the figure.



The figure itself is rather nice. The face sculpt is decent, but is a little soft. The bearded face is a new look for Cap in this movie and I think Gentle Giant did a good job sculpting the facial hair. I also like the little details like the battle damaged areas on his uniform.


I really like the articulation on this figure. The packaging states 16 points of articulation, but I am going to be a bit more generous as some of the points are double jointed. I am saying 23.

  • Ball-and-socket joint at the neck (x1)
  • Swivel hinges at each shoulder (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each shoulder (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each elbow (x4)
  • Swivel hinges at each wrist (x2)
  • Ball-and-socket joint at mid-torso (x1)
  • Swivel joint at waist (x1)
  • Swivel hinges at each hip (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each thigh (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each knee (x4)
  • Rocking hinges at each ankle (x2)


Accessories are fairly standard here, but there are a few character specific items that are really cool. He comes with four sets of interchangeable hands, two retracted shield cuffs, two expanded shields, and a stand.


The expanded shields are kinda cool as they have can extend and retract as well.


He can be displayed without the shields and shield cuffs, too.



  • Playability – 5 out of 5. I think Cap has some really great playability! He does run a bit on the collector end of things, but I can totally see him battling Thanos.
  • Packaging¬† – 5 out of 5. The bubble packaging is fairly standard for Marvel Select, but everything is well displayed within the bubble, the images are nice, and the breakdown on the back is neat.
  • Paint and Sculpt – 4 out of 5. The face sculpt is a bit soft. He reminds me more of Jake Gyllenhaal, but the likeness is almost there. I do like the facial hair sculpting and the little details in the uniform.
  • Standability – 5 out of 5. I am happy to say this guy has some good standabillity. His legs are solid and the ankles are tight. Plus, he comes with a stand.
  • Articulation – 5 out of 5. 23 is a good number. It makes for some really nice displayable poses.
  • Accessories – 5 out of 5. While fairly standard, the swap-ability of the shields/cuffs and the expandability of the shields is really cool.
  • Affordability – 5 out of 5. $23.99 is a nice, affodable price point for such a detailed figure.

Overall impression: 34 out of 35 is a home run for DST on this figure. I would highly recommend it for collectors and players.

Action Figure Maniac Review: Diamond Select Toys: iZombie: Liv Moore

iZombie: Liv Moore

I have never read the comic, but I am definitely digging the show. If you haven’t seen it, iZombie is about an up-and-coming young doctor turned zombie named Liv Moore. She isn’t your typical zombie though. She is smart, she works in a morgue for cover, eats the brains of the cadavers, and absorbs the memories and personality traits of those whose brains she eats. Its a lot of fun!

The Liv Moore figure from Diamond Select Toys is pretty nice!

She is nicely displayed on blister card packaging with all of her accessories prominently visible. The back of the card gives a great character description and photo of the figure itself.


She is a fairly detailed figure and has 20 points of articulation:

  • Ball-and-socket at the neck (x1)
  • Rotating hinges at each shoulder (x2)
  • Rotating hinges at each elbow (x2)
  • Rotating hinges at each wrist (x2)
  • Rotating waist (x1)
  • Hinges at hips (x4)
  • Rotating thighs (x2)
  • Hinges at knees (x4)
  • Rotating hinges at each ankle (x2)


Her face is beautiful and painted in her pale skin tones, the hair allows for amazing head positioning, and there is some great detail on her shirt and jacket.


She comes equipped with two extra sets of hands, a hand holding chopsticks, a cup of pricey coffee, a bottle of hot sauce (its the only way she can taste her food), an emesis basin full of brains and ramen, a lead pipe, and a base.



  • Playability – 5 out of 5. She is pretty awesome. Her articulation and accessories make for a very playable figure.
  • Collectibility – 5 out of 5. The packaging is highly displayable. The colors are a little subdued, but it fits the character.
  • Paint Applications – 4 out of 5. Overall, the paint apps are really good. There was a bit of clumping at the face and the lines on the clothing could be cleaner. Also, there was paint wear at the elbow when I articulated the arm.
  • Standability – 5 out of 5. Static and action poses are totally do-able, especially with her base.
  • Articulation – 5 out of 5. 20 points makes for a solid, highly poseable action figure.
  • Accessories – 5 out of 5. DST surprised me on this one. She is chock-full of fun accessories.
  • Affordability – 5 out of 5. $17.99 is pretty affordable in the collector realm these days. No complaints.

Overall impression: 34 out of 35. She is pretty impressive overall. She could easily be a display piece or a fun action toy for the more imaginative.
