Announced today is the pre-order for the Iron Giant Deluxe Figure from Mondo, which goes "live" on mondotees.com from Thursday, January 22nd (Sale announcement to be via Twitter @MondoNews). First revealed at SDCC 2014, now two versions will be made available; The Iron Giant Deluxe Figure (above) - Standing approx 16" in height, and featuring 30+ points of articulation, and includes Sound feature - each priced US$300.
Shown below is the The Iron Giant Deluxe Figure with "Hand Under Foot" accessory - same product stats as the regular edition, but this version comes with the "Hand Under Foot" accessory, modeled after the Iron Giant's detached hand that runs loose in the farmhouse. In an Edition of 250, and priced at US$315, this is a Mondo-Exclusive :)
"The figure features over 30 points of articulation and a variety of accessories allowing you to transform the Iron Giant into all of his notable incarnations. You’ll receive two interchangeable heads with light-up eyes, a magnetic “S” that can be detached from a Seafood sign and attached to his chest, switch-out “War Arm” when things get tense, a Hogarth mini-figure that sits perfectly in his hand, and of course, a girder to munch on. Additionally, the figure includes a sound feature with favorite Iron Giant quotes from the film." (mondotees.com)
Mondo showed Brad Bird (director of the "Iron Giant" animated movie), and you can see a video of him playing with the piece on i9.com.
"We had the amazing opportunity to develop this figure for Mondo. Over the past 20 year we had worked on some amazing projects for so many great clients, I have to say that this project was the highlight of my career, and this video gave me the shivers and a huge teary smile.
I can not wait to have this in my collection and can't wait to see how the fans react to the hundreds of hours of hard work by our team, and the crew at Mondo. Brock Otterbacher you are my SUPERMANnnnnn!" - exclaimed Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks.
