Last year, Sideshow Collectibles released their 1/4 Spider-Man Premium Format Figure, which many collectors are considering the best statue of the character ever. Of course, not everyone has an extra $500 (more like $700-$1200 on the aftermarket now) for the Sideshow Spider-Man. Thankfully, for those collectors who are looking for something a bit smaller–and a whole lot cheaper–Gentle Giant is swinging in with a uniquely cool Spidey of their own: the Collector’s Gallery Spider-Man statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Ever since San Diego Comic-Con 2016, one Gentle Giant Marvel Animated statue (based off of the Skottie Young Marvel Babies artwork) has been missing in action. But after seven months, we can take the Master of Magnetism’s face off of the non-existent milk cartons, because the first X-Men related character in the line has arrived: the Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Magneto statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Today looks to be a quiet start to another week of Marvel Toy News, so let’s step back and take a look at an item that was revealed last week that’s pretty near and dear to my heart. With the Skottie Young Magneto that debuted at SDCC 2016 being the only Marvel Babies statue Gentle Giant hadn’t put up for sale yet, most people (including me) expected Mags to be the next pre-order in the line. But nope! The next character is actually two characters: the Marvel Animated Groot & Rocket Raccoon statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Last week, collectors jaws dropped and their wallets trembled at the beautiful sight of the Sideshow Collectibles’ Venom Premium Format Figure. As beautiful as that figure may be, though, not everyone has $600+ to blow on one. But for those who love Venom and also love not being broken, there is an alternative–the Gentle Giant Venom statue is now up for order! And hey, if you opt for this Marvel Collectors Gallery Venom statue over the Sideshow version, you may even have some cash left to buy some new Spider-Man bookends…Continue Reading →
The success and growth of the Marvel Animated statues line based off of the Skottie Young Marvel Babies artwork has been one of the most delightful surprises of 2016, and this week Gentle Giant announced another new addition to the family coming in the spring! Though we got a convention exclusive Rocket Raccoon Animated Statue in a different style, the first Marvel Babies Guardians of the Galaxy statue is coming our way: the Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Star-Lord statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
September 2016 just may be some sort of unofficial Netflix Daredevil merch month, as after getting close to no collectibles released for the show this year, we’ve gotten a healthy dose of new toys announced in the past week! DST announced the Season 2 Minimates box set last week, with Hot Toys opening pre-orders for their fantastic Daredevil sixth scale figure to open this week. And now it’s time for the first high-end statue of the character: the Gentle Giant Netflix Daredevil mini-bust is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Ever since the Gentle Giant Marvel Animated statues line (inspired by the Skottie Young Marvel Babies artwork) began, Gentle Giant has delivered headliner A-List character after A-List character in it, from Iron Man to Deadpool to Spider-Gwen. But at SDCC 2016, the next entry in the line was revealed, and while he’s never been a hugely popular mainstream character, I’m looking forward to having him nonetheless: the Marvel Animated Gentle Giant Vision statue is now up for order! And hey–there’s something for bookend collectors too…Continue Reading →
Hardly a week goes by this year that we don’t see a new Deadpool collectible premiered by some company, but the one Gentle Giant put up for sale this week is definitely not like any other Deadpool toy that’s come before it!
I am normally not an armless mini-bust collector (at all), but sometimes you’ve gotta make an exception, and this is one of those time–the Caesar Deadpool Classic Bust is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I’ve been so busy the past few weeks discussing all of the news regarding the most popular Marvel toys–such as Hasbro Marvel Legends figures–that I’ve neglected some of my favorite offerings from smaller lines. But now that things have cooled down a bit, let’s take a look at a trio of new entries into one of the cutest and most addictive high-end Marvel statue lines in the land–at SDCC 2016, Gentle Giant debuted Marvel Animated statues of Skottie Young Magneto, Punisher and the Vision!Continue Reading →
The wait is almost over, and the biggest comic book and collectibles event of 2016 is almost here: San Diego Comic-Con 2016 begins just two weeks from tomorrow! At this point, we’ve known most of the exclusive for the event for at least a week… but not all of them! Gentle Giant Ltd. had been holding their cards pretty close to their vest, but their trio of Marvel SDCC 2016 Exclusives now stands revealed: an Animated Rocket Raccoon statue, a Secret Wars Spider-Gwen Micro-Bobbles, and… some crazy-colored Deadpools including neon green Deadpool?!Continue Reading →
We may not even have the first of the Gentle Giant Marvel Collector’s Gallery 1/8 scale statues in our hands yet, but now Gentle Giant has unveiled the first of next year’s additions to the line.
And those expecting another shrunken-down version of a past release are in for a shock, because instead this is a totally-new sculpt of one of Marvel’s hottest characters: the Gentle Giant Deadpool Collector’s Gallery Statue goes up for order this week!Continue Reading →
Just when I thought that Marvel mini-busts were a dead breed, Gentle Giant pulls a Captain America out of their hat and proves that mini-busts are merely “dying” and not totally dead already! In honor of the Captain America: Civil War movie hitting theaters, Gentle Giant Ltd. is releasing a rare entry in their Marvel bust line: the Civil War Captain America bust is now up for order! But while I’m always thrilled to see a new mini bust, this one is not my favorite…Continue Reading →
Last month, Gentle Giant Ltd. revealed their fourth Skottie Young Marvel Babies statue–Spider-Gwen–and the hype generated put that of all the other statues in the Marvel Animated line to shame.
I thought there was nothing Gentle Giant could do to top their Skottie Young Spider-Gwen, but they had a major ace up their sleeves: the Skottie Young Deadpool Marvel Animated Statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
So far, there are two clear Marvel breakout stars in 2016. One has an R-Rated major motion picture in theaters now and decades of comic book appearances. The other… has appeared in comic books for less than two years.
But what Spider-Gwen may lack in history, she makes up for in the sheer variety of merch coming out this year: the Skottie Young-styled Gentle Giant Spider-Gwen statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
The vintage Mattel Marvel Secret Wars toy line in the 1980’s was one of the earliest–and most bizarre–comic/toy tie-ins ever. Mattel offered to produce Marvel figures–but only if Marvel published a tie-in comic. And then Mattel proceeded to produce a bunch of characters not in the Secret Wars comic at all. Cool, huh? And now we can celebrate this bit of oddball trivia once again with another character not in the original comic, as the Gentle Giant Secret Wars Daredevil Jumbo figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
