Join the Secret Wars with These Throwback Figures

Secret Wars

Before this summer’s massive Secret Wars event kicks off, take some time to revisit the original with Gentle Giant Ltd!

The original Secret Wars was a 12-part limited series that crossed over several Marvel Comics titles from May of 1984 to April of 1985. The event introduced The Beyonder to the Marvel Universe for the very first time and saw the omnipotent character assemble a new planet from chunks of other planets,  which he then calls “Battleworld.” Against their will, The Beyonder chooses several heroes and villains from Earth and teleports those chosen to his newly created Battleworld to fight for his amusement. Some of the highlights from Secret Wars include Spider-Man finding the black symbiote suit for the first time, Ben Grimm staying behind in space and Doctor Doom stealing The Beyonder’s powers.

At the time, the series was tied into the popular Secret Wars action figure collection from Mattel. Gentle Giant digitally scanned the original figures and reproduced them in 12” scale, with no detail being overlooked. 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.

Designed with the ultimate Marvel collector in mind, the figures come in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display these limited edition collectibles. The first limited figure available will be the Black Suit Spider-Man that you can pre-order today at this link, but that’s not all! Use the code SecretMarvel20 at checkout to save $20 off your purchase today only, November 19th! The next figure to be released will be the Secret Wars Hobgoblin figure. See pictures of both in the gallery below.

Suit Up With This Screen-Accurate Iron Man Mark II Maquette From Sideshow Collectibles

Mark II

Every great story has a beginning or as Tony Stark so eloquently put it in a way that only Iron Man could, “Jarvis, sometimes you gotta run before you can walk.”

Attention Shellhead fans! Sideshow Collectibles has done it again but this time with some help from Legacy Effects Studios, the FX masters behind every Iron Man film. Together they have created the ultimate screen-accurate representation of Tony’s Mark II armor! This highly detailed quarter scale maquette comes spinning out of Marvel’s Iron Man, the 2008 blockbuster sensation that helped start the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The one of a kind statue stands on an eye-catching Stark Industries base and is a must have for every Marvelite out there. The silver suit, which is destined to one day carry the “War Machine” moniker, is finished with a high gloss metallic paint application and features functioning light-up eyes, chest arc reactor and palm repulsors.

This dynamic Mark II replica statue comes ready for your Hall of Armor with a decorative nameplate and is available for pre-order now at this link!
