One of the coolest announcements at Toy Fair 2015 came from our friends at Gentle Giant, who unveiled two new DC Comics 12” vintage action figure toy lines! As you all know The Blot’s a little obsessed with Kenner’s iconic Super Powers Collection toy line from the ‘80s, and Gentle Giant will be taking those original 4” figures and blown them up to a whopping 12” scale. Now I just want to know if these jumbo retro action figures will also recreate the Super Powers Collection’s action feature with the squeeze of their legs.
Gentle Giant’s second new DC Comics 12” vintage action figure line will be based on Kenner’s popular Batman: The Animated Series 5” action figures from the ‘90s. It’s amazing how much Warner Bros’ Batman: The Animated Series cartoon has influenced the Batman franchise overall, and I’m sure Batman fans everywhere will go crazy for these 1/6 scale poseable jumbo figures. Best of all, both DC Comics jumbo vintage toy lines come with removable real cloth capes. Look for both of these exciting releases to debut in 2016!
