This Giant-Man figure stands tall at a whopping 24-inches in comparison with many of the 6-inch-scale Marvel Legends Series figures.

MARVEL LEGENDS HASLAB GIANT-MAN

(HASBRO/ Retail Price: $199.99 / Backers Needed: 10,000)

For 60 years, Hank Pym has been Marvel Comics’ resident inventor. As the inventor of Pym Particles, he’s fought dangers of all sizes as the tiny-but-mighty Ant-Man and larger-than-life Giant-Man. In 1963 Pym co-founded the Avengers team and was one of the original members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, alongside his wife Janet Van Dyne (aka The Wasp), Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor.

From the laboratory that created Pym Particles and the android Ultron, & the crowdfunding program that brought you Sentinel and Galactus, comes a larger-than-life Avenger. Pym Labs partners with HasLab for the biggest Super Hero to hit the Marvel Legends Series: Giant-Man!

In honor of Marvel Comics’ 60th anniversary of the Avengers, we are proud to present one of the original members of the first Avengers team. In 6-inch Hasbro Marvel Legends Series scale, Hank Pym is 24-inch tall Giant-Man, making him the tallest hero yet designed for the Marvel Legends line and the perfect compliment to the even the most impressive Avengers collection.

This crowdfunded project will run from September 8, 2023, to 11:59pm ET on October 23, 2023 and requires 10,000 backer orders to begin production. If successful, the project will begin shipping around Fall 2024.

When it came to concepts for the next Marvel Legends HasLab, we knew that what fans needed was to complete the most iconic and mightiest team on Earth — the Avengers. In honor of the 60th anniversary, we looked to the original team of Marvel Comics Avengers. This figure is inspired by Giant-Man’s first comic appearance in Tales to Astonish #49 (1963), with details that pay homage to his long comic history and history with the Avengers.

Inspired by the classic Jack Kirby Giant-Man design, this item has an entirely new sculpt and premium deco. To really pop on your shelves, figure has his iconic red and blue outfit, silver belt, and fine detailing designed to look like leather seams and spandex texture.

Display this expressive Marvel Legends Series figure with 2 different faceplate pieces. Figure has a stoic expression, which can be swapped out for either a smiling faceplate or angry faceplate. Multiple looks fit a multitude of poses and display scenarios.

Giant-Man has 91 points of articulation and is fully poseable, making it the ultimate display piece for the collector’s shelf.

 

The Giant-Man base offering needs 10,000 backer orders to begin production. Orders beyond that will help unlock tiers that enhance your Giant-Man figure and display.

Daniel Pickett

AFi founder and Editor-In-Chief 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 Bloomberg News, MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
