The Marvel Select has a more classic deco than the Marvel Legends Retro Card version, which was inspired by the '90s X-Men Animated show with it's purple and blue. At well over 9 inches the Marvel Select towers head and shoulders above the Marvel Legends Apocalypse. I'm mad for both of these!
Below, Apocalypse with my Marvel Select Classic Thanos, which has been in my collection for well over a decade. In my opinion, this Thanos is one of the best out there for many years now- it still holds up against newer Marvel Select figures.
This Super Skrull in Black Bolt/Inhumans outfit was a surprise- Secret Invasion was back in 2008, but Marvel Studios is currently producing a series of the storyline for Disney+. Along with a somewhat inexplicable four sets of hands, a Black Bolt head was included, with sonic effect accessory that fits into SkrullBolt's open mouth. Fantastic!
Among the array of extra hands that came with Super Skrull were a gripping pair with nothing to hold- I remembered the McFarlane Accessory Pack that arrived in February, which included the perfect sci-fi laser pistol for this figure ...!

Super Skrull and Apocalypse with two more recent Marvel Select figures, Red Hulk and Vision...
Marvel Select has released some fantastic new figures recently, which I have been happy with by and large. The Super Skrull has a lot going for it, in spite of some loos joints, but the Apocalypse it outstanding- I was seriously impressed with this big, beautiful figure! Recommended!
