Marvel.com breaks the news that Gentle Giant is producing a new series of jumbo figures based on Mattel's popular Secret Wars action figure released back in the '80s. Like their Jumbo Star Wars figures, Gentle Giant has digitally scanned the original figures and reproduced them in a towering 12" scale. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully re-produced lenticular shield. To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with a Secret Wars-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork.
The first limited figure available will be the Black Suit Spider-Man. This figure is available for pre-order now through gentlegiantltd.com priced at $90 and scheduled to arrive third quarter 2015. Use the code SecretMarvel20 at checkout to save $20 off your purchase today only, November 19th!
