@GentleGiantLTD Announces #SDCC Exclusive 3 – Gwenpool Animated Statue
June 12, 2018

 Gwenpool Marvel Animated Statue

Pulled from the real world, ordinary dropout Gwen Poole (her real name) retreated from her daily struggles and failures by obsessing over the media that she loved, particularly the Marvel Universe. Somehow, she was accidentally transplanted into the unpredictable world of COMICS! Not sure how to get herself back into her own dimension, Gwen made the most of her predicament. She pulled on the Pink and White Tights and decided to jump head first into the action as Marvel’s newest hero; the unbelievable GWENPOOL!

With the newest entry into our Marvel Animated Statue line we find fan-favorite character Gwenpool skipping, care-free down the street, sipping her frosty “Dead Freeze” through a translucent pink crazy straw.  At her feet lay the carcases of the slashed cups and spilled deliciousness…the horror!

This convention exclusive is next in Gentle Giant Ltd’s long-running line of Marvel statues based on the illustrations of best-selling comic book artist Skottie Young. Inspired by The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1, this statue was digitally sculpted and replicated for production on state of the art 3D Systems machines. These high-resolution prints are used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this well detailed, high-end collectible. Each limited edition animated style statue is hand-cast, painted, and numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

 

The Gwenpool Marvel Animated Statue will be available exclusively at our booth (booth #3513) at San Diego Comic Con July 18th-22nd.   However, we have set aside a limited quantity of them for pre-order.  Even if you are not able to attend  Comic Con 2018 you can still order one (while available) and we will ship it to you after the convention*.    The Gwenpool Animated Statue is available to pre-order today at 12noon pst.

 

* some shipping restrictions apply.

 

 

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
