Gentle Giant LTD’s Marvel Animated Statue line expands again with the inclusion of Ant-Man! Scott Lang in is a panic and is running for his life in this charming new statue that is based on the variant cover for The Astonishing Ant-Man #001.

Ant-Man is the 16th release in our popular and adorable Marvel animated statue line.

Back in the 1980’s very little was known about the origins of the fan-favorite X-Man known as Wolverine. The mutant from the Great White North was the breakout star of Giant Sized X-Men #1 and even though his past was shrouded in mystery, his popularity with fans continued to grow with each issue. In 1982 Marvel Comics took a chance and published one of their very first limited series comic books with Wolverine as the title character.
In the four-issue limited series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, Logan travels back to Japan to take on one of the largest organized crime rings in Japan, which happens to be run by the father of his former love, Mariko. Through the course of the series Wolverine must duel Mariko’s corrupt, abusive husband, fight an army of HAND ninjas, and he first utters his famous phrase “I’m the best at what I do, and what I do isn’t pretty.”
Gentle Giant celebrates almost 45 years of Wolverine with our newest 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery Statue. The 1980’s Wolverine is the first statue in our newly announced Wolverine Collector’s Gallery series. The 1980’s Wolverine Collector’s Gallery statue comes with real metal claws, his mask pulled back to reveal his face and is inspired by the cover art for Old Man Logan Vol. 2 #22. The 1980’s Wolverine 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.
