First up we have the Walgreens exclusive Punisher figure.  We saw an early prototype of this figure at Toy Fair 2016, but he did not have his headband at the time.  Here his is in his completed form, loose and carded.

Next we have the two Walmart Captain America: Civil War exclusives: The Winter Soldier and Falcon with wings and Red Wing.   When they were originally announced at Toy Fair it was assumed by many that they would be in a 2-pack.  We can see now they will be individually carded.

The Walmart figures should be the states soon, within the next few months.

The Walgreens Punisher should hit this Fall after the Namor ML exclusive.

Marvel Secret Wars Micro Bobbles – Series 2

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 1980’s Marvel Secret Wars action figures and reproduced down to 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 bobble head feature.

 Sandtrooper Statue

SandtrooperStatuePoster2

Imperial Stormtroopers that were deployed to distant desert worlds, often called Sandtroopers, were specially equipped to survive in hostile environments without close support from other Imperial units. Sandtrooper foot patrols were regularly seen in trading outposts and on the outskirts of small towns, insuring order and loyalty to the Empire on these forgotten outer rim worlds.

SandtrooperStatuePoster3

It was a Sandtrooper garrison stationed on Tatooine that discovered the fugitive droids R2-D2 and C- 3PO just as they blasted off the planet surface in the Millennium Falcon. Their escape with the Death Star plans would ultimately lead to the destruction of the Empire’s super weapon at the hands of the Rebellion.

 

Sculpted by Gentle Giant’s master artisans, the Sandtrooper statue stands 12” tall in 1/6 scale and is depicted on patrol in the harsh landscape of Tatooine. Each limited edition hand painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp injection plastic details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Premier Guild Members will have access to an EXCLUSIVE bonus accessory for this piece – A Tatooine desert scurrier!

 Black Widow Collectors Gallery statue

BlackWidow9inchPoster

Natasha Romanoff, AKA Natalia Alianova Romanova, AKA The Black Widow. Romanoff’s history as a double agent is well known in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What’s better known, is her heroism as an agent of SHIELD, friend and partner to Captain America, and her membership as an Avenger.

 

Using digital sculpting and scan data, Gentle Giant Ltd has recreated Black Widow in this amazing 9 inch statue. The original pieces to be used for manufacturing where then printed on top of the line 3D Systems 3D Printers. These high resolution printed pieces made it possible to capture the intricate details of the character’s likeness, costume and accessories.

The first in a new line of Gentle Giant’s Collectors Gallery statues, the Black Widow is an incredible representation of the character as she appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
