Tonight we are going to take a quick look at some items that aren’t aimed at the hardcore collector but still have some fun angles to them – Sentinel’s Hero Illuminate Gallery figures. These are static mini-statues that come attached to a base and are inside an acrylic box. The box lights up using LEDs in the base, they point upwards and follow the edges of the acrylic making the entire thing glow. You can leave them on, off, or on motion sensor mode, where it will light up as you walk by or otherwise move. The first 6 are based on Marvel characters and include Captain America, Iron Man, Vision, Ultron, Spider-Man and Thor. Each have a name plate attached to their enclosure.
While not for the S.H. Figuarts or Marvel Legends crowd, the light up features are well done and the motion sensors are a nice addition. They’d be perfect deskmates or gifts for a younger fan. Plus, we have some ideas for using them (or something like it) in our style of collecting too. Read on to check the pics and those thoughts!
