Diamond's Marvel Select Gambit
On one hand, this is THE BEST Gambit figure ever made. Seriously, a work of art by the incredibly talented Jean St. Jean! On the other hand, this is the part where I cry about Diamond Select's 7 inch format being out of scale with all but their own line, so the choice is wasted when there are legions of Marvel Legends fans who would buy hordes of bigger characters like the previously announced Juggernaut figure. Ready?
OK i'm done. This Gambit release comes with a Danger Room Diorama Base that should slide along side the one that came with Cyclops...although they are both corners so this is going to be an awfully small training area unless Diamond makes some center pieces! 16 points of articulation await with alternate hands to increase the action. Expect Gambit to hit the pegs at specialty stores and comic shops this December. I'd also expect Diamond to make a variant with the longer hair head.
