Gentle Giant has sent over details on three new Marvel pre-orders posted in the month of May: the Wolvering Animated Statue, their newest addition to their Wolverine statue collection – Old Man Logan, and the companion piece to their Iron Man helmet desk organizer – an Iron Man guantlet business card holder.

Wolverine Animated Statue
MORE MUTANTS!   You asked and we answered! Wolverine has been one of the top three most requested characters to be included in our line of Marvel Animated Statues and now the wait is over!   Wolverine is here bub and he may be small but he is full of berserker rage in his classic tiger-striped costume! He has his adamantium claws extended and he is ready to “fastball special” into your collection! 

Wolverine is the 18th release in our popular and adorable Marvel animated statues based on the Marvel comic books covers done by fan-favorite artist Skottie Young. The Wolverine Statue was digitally sculpted and carefully printed on state of the art 3D Systems 3D printers. The high-resolution prints were then used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this animated collectible. Each animated statue is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.

Wolverine 08’ Old Man Logan Gallery Statue

Wandering through an alternate future universe designated as Earth-807128 aka “the Wastelands”, where super villains overthrew the superheroes, old man Logan has known heartbreak his whole life. A failure from the past haunts Logan – and to correct his mistakes, he’ll need magical assistance! But, when he faces opposition, the man who was once Wolverine will turn to an unlikely – and potentially treacherous ally! Spiraling through his own living memories, and forced to relive moments both poignant and painful, will Logan be tempted to try to put right what once went wrong? And what might the consequences be?

Gentle Giant celebrates almost 45 years of Wolverine’s history with our newest 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery Statue. The Wolverine/Old Man Logan ‘08 is the 3rd statue in our recently announced Wolverine Collector’s Gallery series. The Wolverine ‘08 Collector’s Gallery statue comes with real metal claws, an attitude of “being the best at what he does” and is inspired by the cover art for Old Man Logan Vol. 2 #24 “Past Lives” story line. The Wolverine ‘08 Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios and every one comes hand numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Funko is thrilled to dive deeper into the world of storytelling and pop culture with our latest line of collectible vinyl figures – 5 Star!

In addition to Funko’s usual attention to detail and characterization, the 5 Star line boasts several unique features including three points of articulation, allowing the figures to be posed, window display box packaging that mimics the opening of a book and situates each character in their unique world, and thoughtful accessories that further the character’s narrative.

Collectors with a passion for creatively displaying their figures can capitalize on the ability to use 5 Star figures’ different poses, incorporating the accessories and even the packaging to create a unique tableau or diorama that continues the narrative adventure.

The 5 Star line launches with the ever-magical Wizarding World with the beloved Harry Potter
and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley with their Hogwarts mentors Albus Dumbledore and Rubeus Hagrid. Each figure is accompanied by an animal companion such as
Hedwig the owl or by an iconic character-defining object such as Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letter or Hagrid’s pink umbrella. Each figure will cost $10. In addition to the figures available in wide release, a number of figures and variants will be available exclusively at Walmart.

The 5 Star line will expand with additional licenses later this year. Be on the lookout for 5 Star in stores near you this summer!

Bored with being the champ of the box office after three weeks on top, Captain America has jumped from the big screen to the small screen with his inclusion in Kabam’s mobile game Marvel Contest of Champions.

If you’ve missed out on the going ons of the MCU the Cap’s background is below:

Since opposing the Sokovia Accords, the super-soldier has lost his shield and been forced underground. But with the help of friends new and old, he’s managed to re-equip and remain under the radar; all the while continuing to do what he believes is right — saving the world one clandestine mission at a time.

Full details on Cap’s powers, stats and abilities in the game are here. And if you’re not playing, you can get it on both iOS and Android operating systems.
