Armor Wars are Coming to Marvel Next Summer 2015

The Armor Wars are coming next Summer 2015 from Marvel. 

Stay tuned for more details on the Armor Wars series. 

Thor #2 First Look from Marvel

This November, bring the thunder and summon the lightning as the new Thor tests her mettle against an army of Frost Giants in THOR #2 -  the highly anticipated second issue! Critically acclaimed writer Jason Aaron and rising star artist Russell Dauterman continue the epic tale of the new God of Thunder, and her unworthy predecessor. An army of massive Frost Giants have invaded Midgard, sowing destruction and chaos in their wake. The Odinson lays battered and broken at the hands of Malekith the Accursed, unable to wield his mighty hammer. To save us all, a new Thor will rise. And she may be the world’s only hope. Can she stave off the darkness? Or will she be consumed by it? On the bellow of thunder and the crack of lightning, a new Thor is born. See her in action for the first time this November in the highly anticipated THOR #2!

Return of the Jedi Admiral Ackbar Jumbo Kenner Vintage Figure from Gentle Giant

 Inspired by the Kenner vintage Star Wars figures, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the Rebel Alliance’s master tactician, Admiral Ackbar, in jumbo size! Renowned for his situational awareness in combat and for being one step ahead of the enemy, the fan favorite Mon Calamari admiral is just like you remember, only BIGGER.

Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced in 12” scale to the rest of the jumbo Kenner line, no detail has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully re-produced Admiral Staff.

To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with a Return of the Jedi-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.

Your collection can’t stand a figure of this magnitude!

It's A Trap!!!
