Marvel Select Green Goblin Figure Review
Overall I really like this figure and there's really nothing big I don't like about him. His sculpt and paint are well done and he looks fantastic on display on his glider. In a perfect world, I'd have loved to see some articulation on the glider.

Last week we took a look at the Diamond Select Storm review and this week we have the Marvel Select Green Goblin Figure Review gliding right on in. Right from the moment that I had received this guy I was pretty excited about doing a review on him. He’s just got that look, it’s an evil look, but I like it. DST really did a good job on the Green Goblin. Let’s take a closer look.

The packaging that the Green Goblin comes in is the standard oversized collectors packaging. The packaging does a good job at showing off figure inside and all of the accessories. The packaging also has a bunch of Goblin themed artwork on the packaging. On the left side of the package, there’s a big blown out image of the Green Goblin, which is actually my favorite part.
On the back of the package, you get an in-depth bio of the character and a preview of Colossus and Gambit. There’s also a nice image of the figure outside of the packaging.
The sculpting job is fantastic. Like I said before, he has a very evil look to him. His arms and legs feature nicely sculpted scaly looking chain mail, while on his torso is more like a purple tunic with lots of appropriate fabric wrinkles. His body has the perfect slender build to fit the character.
The Goblin has an awesome ear to ear grin that fits him perfectly. It makes him look that much better when he is riding on his glider. The head does seem a little bit too big for the body, but it’s not that big of a deal.
The only accessories that he comes with is an interchangeable right hand and his man purse. He can have either a pumpkin hand or a closed fist. Personally, I prefer the pumpkin hands.
The glider is pretty basic. It’s just like base with a couple peg holes to help him stand up. It would have been pretty cool if you could angle the glider at different angles for alternate posing.
The paint was pretty well done on this figure too. There was lots of shading in the purples of the costume and it was pulled off well. The scales on his arms and legs were painted with metallic green paint, giving them a metal look. I really like this touch and it was pulled off perfectly.
His face has a lighter green color with a wash that seeps into the wrinkles and his teeth look disgusting, almost like they are bleeding. He really looks great.
The goblin actually has some pretty good articulation. He has:
- Ball joint neck
- Ball joint shoulders
- Swivel/hinge elbows
- Swivel wrists
- Swivel waist
- Ball joint hips
- Swivel/hinge knees
- Swivel/hinge ankles
Everything that you could want is there for making him look good on his glider. The only thing that is missing that would help a little bit would be an ab crunch, but you can get away without it.
Overall I really like this figure and there’s really nothing I don’t like about him. His sculpt and paint are pretty well done and he looks fantastic on display on his glider. This guy would make a great addition to any Marvel Select Display.
