Gentle Giant’s New Products for August

GentleGiantLtdLogoGentle Giant has sent out details of their new products for the month of August, three new products including a Jumbo Batman: The Animated Series Catwom, a Jumbo Super Powers Lex Luthor and the first wave of the Secret Wars Micro Bobbles. Check out detailed information below.

Jumbo Batman: The Animated Series Catwoman

In the fall of 1992, a new animated series debuted from Warner Bros. Animation on weekday afternoons. It would go on to leave a lasting impact on one of DC’s most enduring franchises. Gentle Giant Ltd. celebrates this much loved television show with our Batman: The Animated Series Catwoman jumbo figure. Based on digital scans of the original 1993 Kenner 5” action figure, this jumbo figure stands 11” tall in 1/6 scale. Every detail is meticulously re-created from the original figure, capturing perfectly the design aesthetic and tone of the series embodied in Batman’s feline nemesis! To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged Catwoman with a retro-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, each jumbo figure comes in a protective re-sealable plastic outer clam shell. Re-live a part of Batman history and afternoon nostalgia with Gentle Giant Ltd.’s Batman: The Animated Series Catwoman jumbo figure.

Jumbo Super Powers Lex Luthor

In 1984, Kenner began to release the next of their extremely popular action figure lines, the DC Super Powers Collection! This line included heroes such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and many more. Gentle Giant is proud to announce the Lex Luthor jumbo figure as the next release in this stunning line of retro figures. This Lex Luthor jumbo figure was developed using state of the art 3D technology. Gentle Giant has taken the original DC Super Powers Lex Luthor and created a highly accurate digital model with the use of 3D scanners. This digital model was then scaled to 12 inches tall, and then printed using top of the line 3D Systems printers. These pieces are then used in manufacturing to produce extremely accurate, scaled replicas. The DC Super Powers Collection jumbo figures from Gentle Giant are made from high quality vinyl and ABS plastic parts. Many of the figures also include fabric capes and accessories. Finally, these incredible figures feature retro art packaging, and come in a protective re-sealable blister pack.

Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars Micro Bobbles

Secret Wars was a 12 part series from Marvel Comics that introduced the character of The Beyonder to the Marvel Universe. The Beyonder, assembles a planet from chunks of other planets and dubs it “Battleworld”. He then kidnaps several heroes and villains from Earth, and transplants them on Battleworld to fight for The Beyonder’s amusement. Digitally scanned from the original Secret Wars action figures and reproduced in a 2.5″ Bobble Head format, no detail has been overlooked. These Micro Bobbles feature PVC construction, accurate paint applications, and a metal spring for the bobble head feature. To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged these Micro Bobbles with a mini Secret Wars-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the Micro Bobble comes in a mini re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition collectible. 4 Piece Set includes: • Spider-man • Wolverine • Hobgoblin • Black Costume Spider-man
