Shining a spotlight on this figure is a highly desirable and appropriate thing to do. 2014 witnessed the release of Gentle Giant’s own take on the Classic action figure. Their release was fully 25% larger than the original figure presented in a large black box featuring white artwork.
This enormous 24 inch tall figure is cast in luminous green plastic and will glow in the dark once held under bright lights. It was the first of 4 variants produced by Gentle Giant between 2014 and 2015, each of which stands exactly 2 feet tall. All articulation present in the original figure is mimicked in this release, including the fully functional trigger operated mouth and tongue.
Gentle Giant delivered a remarkable figure with this release, one that could stand out in the crowd and be visible 24 hours a day.
