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…

Marvel Secret Wars Jumbo Figures Announced for 2015!

Gentle Giant Jumbo Marvel Secret Wars Figures Announced

Just when I resigned myself that there wasn’t going to be much Marvel toy news to talk about before the holidays, word breaks that Gentle Giant Ltd. is launching their first-ever line of Marvel action figures! Yeah, I know–who doesn’t have a license to make Marvel figures these days, right? But these aren’t just any figures–they’re throwback jumbo 12″ figures based off of the vintage Marvel Secret Wars figures from 1984! And the first two figures coming our way will be Jumbo Black Costume Spider-Man and Hobgoblin!

Exclusive SDCC 2014 Rocket Raccoon Mini Bust Revealed!

SDCC 2014 Exclusive Rocket Raccoon Mini Bust

I genuinely thought that there was a chance I was going to get away scot-free without having to buy any of this year’s Gentle Giant San Diego Comic Con 2014 exclusives. I’m okay living without a mini bust of the Rebel Alliance’s resident butterball, Jek Porkins, and I need a two foot tall, $500 neon green, glow-in-the-dark Aliens figure even less. But then Gentle Giant had to go and do it. They had to make their Marvel exclusive something that I absolutely cannot live without.

He’s about to take the world by storm and become more popular than Spider-Man and Wolverine combined, so this exclusive is gonna be hot: the SDCC 2014 Rocket Raccoon Mini Bust has now been revealed!

Guardians of the Galaxy Star Lord Mini Bust Revealed & Photos!

Starlord Guardians of the Galaxy Gentle Giant Mini Bust Marvel

It’s been a little while since we’ve had a new high-end Marvel sculpture revealed to discuss, and far longer since there’s been a high-end statue or mini bust of a character who has never been given the high-end collectibles treatment before! With the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on the horizon, it’s not a big shocker to see some never-before-done characters getting the spotlight, and the leader of the team will be getting it first–the Gentle Giant Star-Lord Mini Bust is coming in Q4 2014!

We’re less than three months away from the release of the sure-to-be-blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, so it was only a matter of time until the floodgates opened up to let in the tsunami of high-end Captain America 2 merch! While Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles haven’t debuted any of their Captain America The Winter Soldier statues and figures yet, Gentle Giant has drawn first (and second) blood with their Black Widow and Stealth Captain America quarter-scale statues!

Venom Zombie Mini Bust 2014 Gentle Giant

Back in fall 2013 during NYCC, Gentle Giant Ltd. sent out an E-Mail previewing the second entry in their line of Marvel Zombies Villains mini-busts: Zombie Venom! Sometimes it takes the better part of a year (or more) to see a mini bust go from concept form to fully-painted prototype ready to order, but luckily, that’s not the case this time: the Gentle Giant Venom Zombie mini bust photos are out and the sculpture is now up for pre-order!

Gentle Giant Daredevil Mini Bust 2014 PGM Exclusive Announced!

Gentle Giant PGM Exclusive 2014 Daredevil Mini Bust Marvel

2013 has been a tough year for mini busts. The mini bust genre pioneer, Bowen Designs, only released a handful of mini busts this year and has zero (yes, zero) Marvel mini busts in the pipeline. Gentle Giant has continued fighting the good fight, but with low edition sizes the norm and prices far higher than they were a decade ago, mini busts’ days may be numbered. But there’s some hope–at least one more Marvel mini bust is now confirmed for 2014: the Gentle Giant 2014 PGM Exclusive Daredevil Mini-Bust!
