SDCC 2016 Gentle Giant Animated Magneto Statue Skottie Young Marvel Babies

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!

Captain America Civil War Mini Bust by Gentle Giant!

Lifeless Eyes Zombie Stare Captain America Mini Bust

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…

Skottie Young Deadpool Animated Statue Up for Order!

Close-Up of Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Deadpool Figure

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!

Skottie Young Spider-Gwen Animated Statue Up for Order!

Spider-Gwen Gentle Giant Animated Statue

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!

Daredevil Jumbo Secret Wars Figure Photos & Order Info!

Daredevil Jumbo Secret Wars Action Figure 2016

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!

Gentle Giant Iron Patriot 9 Inch Statue Close-Up

It took a few years, but the long-delayed Gentle Giant Iron Patriot Quarter-Scale statue finally arrived in collectors’ hands this fall!

But gorgeous as this light-up 1/4 Iron Patriot statue is, it’s also 19″ tall and $400, making it an item many collectors simply can’t afford (in both shelf space and dollars). But wait! If you fall into that category and still want this piece, there’s hope: the Gentle Giant Marvel Collectors Gallery 9″ Iron Patriot Statue is now up for order!

Gentle Giant’s biggest smash hit Marvel release of 2014 was one of their very first Marvel quarter-scale statues: a gorgeous Scarlett Johansson Black Widow statue based on the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie!

But for those who missed the boat with this beauty, you’ve got another chance: a 9″ version of the Black Widow statue is now available for order!

Skottie Young Captain America Baby Statue Up for Order!

Skottie Young Captain America Statue Gentle Giant Ltd.

Of all the news articles that I published following San Diego Comic-Con 2015, the one that most surprised me the most regarding the sheer amount of hype and excitement that it drummed up was the preview of the Gentle Giant Skottie Young Marvel Babies statues.

Gentle Giant said at the show that we’d have to wait a while to own these mini-statues–and they were telling the truth–but at least the Skottie Young Captain America statue is now up for order!

Gentle Giant Secret Wars Micro Bobbles Figures Series 1 

Marvel Secret Wars Spider-Man Micro Bobbles Figure

Way back when I was a little tyke, the first Marvel figures that I ever owned were from the legendary Secret Wars line. Even though those figures are, uh… “not the best” by today’s standards, they’ve got a special spot in my heart.

Sadly, I don’t have the space (or hundred dollars a pop) to collect all of Gentle Giant’s Jumbo Secret Wars figures. But what I definitely can afford is the latest Gentle Giant brainchild: Secret Wars Micro Bobbles Figures are now up for order!

Gentle Giant Skottie Young Marvel Babies Statues! SDCC 2015

Gentle Giant Thanos Baby Mini-Statue Skottie Young Comic Con 2015

Of all the Marvel collectibles shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, there was one unexpected surprise that delighted me more than any other. No, it isn’t more Marvel Legends or even new Hot Toys figures–it’s not even a line of traditional statues!

Nope, it’s the announcement of a line that I hope Gentle Giant goes deep into and releases dozens of characters for: mini Skottie Young Marvel Babies statues!

Gentle Giant Black Widow Statue Released & Photos!

Gentle Giant Black Widow Statue Close Up Captain America The Winter Soldier

2014 has been a mixed bag for Marvel statue collectors, as the original Marvel statue producer, Bowen Designs, exited Marvel statue production (possibly forever), while newcomers like XM Studios and Gentle Giant Ltd. entered the fray. No one was sure to expect when Gentle Giant announced their first Marvel Cinematic Universe statues in late 2013, but the Gentle Giant Captain America: The Winter Soldier Black Widow 18″ statue has now arrived, and the verdict is in: this statue is spectacular…

Jumbo Secret Wars Black Costume Spider-Man Up for Order!

Secret Wars Jumbo Black Costume Spider-Man Figure 2015

Yesterday, Gentle Giant Ltd. unexpectedly announced a new line of 1/6th scale Jumbo Marvel Secret Wars action figures are on the way in 2015. That was a surprise announcement in and of itself, but I was even less prepared for the primarily negative response I’ve heard from collectors about the line and its price. The first figure in the line, the 12″ Jumbo Secret Wars Black Costume Spider-Man is now up for order–but is he worth 80 to 90 bucks? Here’s my thoughts…
