NECA SDCC 2012 Exclusive Reveal #1: Giant-Man HeroClix Unveiled!
June 4, 2012

NECA is starting to reveal their 2012 San Diego Comic Con exclusives over on NECAOnline.com.   They have revealed 3 exclusives so far with the first being:

 

We’re Con Bound!

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be giving special sneak peaks out our 2012 convention exclusives, and we start today with the brand-spanking new 2012 Convention Exclusive Marvel HeroClix Giant-Man Super Booster! Priced at $39.99, Giant-Man also includes a proportionate Ant-Man HeroClix figure that’s invisible!

No, really, like he’s not there. Set to the scale of Giant-Man, you can’t see Henry Pym when he shrinks all the way down to Ant-Man size. Also, when Marvel HeroClix first premiered way back in 2002, a similar Ant-Man was offered at conventions that year, so this Ant-Man makes a perfect bonus piece for Pym as Giant-Man. As you can see above, there’s a base with Ant-Man on it, and you’ll just have to take our word for it that he’s there. You can’t possibly imagine how hard it was to sculpt something so small that it’s invisible to the naked eye.

Size Matters

Henry Pym AKA Giant-Man first appeared in Marvel’s Tales to Astonish #56 in 1964, having already made his debut as Ant-Man in issue #35 two years earlier. Rumors have been kicking around for a while now about a movie in the works, so we thought no better time to debut this Giant-Man Chaos War HeroClix!

Like all of the figures in the Chaos War collection, Giant-Man is gorgeously detailed and accurate to the comics. He’ll be available at San Diego Comic Con and other upcoming 2012 conventions.

For more on HeroClix, be sure to check out the Marvel Chaos War HeroClix collection, and keep it tuned to your favorite action figures wholesaler for other 2012 convention exclusives to come and all the best merchandise from your favorite games, movies, and more!

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.
