Gentle Giant Jumbo Super Powers Wonder Woman & Batman: TAS Joker

In 1984, Kenner began to release the next on their extremely popular action figure lines, the DC Super Powers Collection! This line included heroes such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and many, many more. Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to announce the Wonder Woman Jumbo Figure as the first of this stunning line of retro figures.

This Wonder Woman Jumbo figure was developed using state of the art 3D technology. Gentle Giant Ltd. has taken the original DC Super Powers Wonder Woman and created a highly accurate digital model with the use of 3D scanners. This digital model was then scaled to 12 inches tall, and then printed using top of the line 3D Systems printers. These pieces are then used in manufacturing to produce extremely accurate, scaled replicas. The DC Super Powers Collection Jumbo Figures from Gentle Giant Ltd. will be made from high quality vinyl, and some ABS plastic parts. Many of the figures will also include fabric capes and accessories. Finally, these incredible figures will feature retro art packaging, and come in a protective re-sealable blister pack.

In the fall of 1992, a new animated series debuted from Warner Bros. Animation on weekday afternoons. It would go on to leave a lasting impact on one of DCā€™s most enduring franchises. Gentle Giant Ltd. celebrates this much loved television show with our Jumbo Batman: The Animated Series Joker figure.

Based on digital scans of the original 1993 Kenner 5ā€ action figure, this Jumbo figure stands 12ā€ tall in 1/6 scale. Every detail is meticulously re-created from the original figure, capturing perfectly the design aesthetic and tone of the series embodied in the Clown Prince of Crime! Re-live a part of Batman history and afternoon nostalgia with Gentle Giant Ltd.ā€™s Jumbo Batman: The Animated Series figure. Pre-Order Joker at Gentle Giant’s site..

  1. Man I would be down for the Super Powers figures but $80 is a bit more than I can justify. I would get accurately sized recreations in a heartbeat though.

    1. I know! I don’t even understand the resource use! Think about the molds that have to be made, and you can’t re-purpose them. I mean, if they’re using ‘disposable’ tooling made from aluminum powder and resin it’s not so bad, and that stuff is more than able to handle the level of detail required, but still.

      I mean, is there a point to slavishly duplicating the mold parting lines on the parts? Is that really a desirable part of the whole thing? Why not duplicate the sloppy paint as well then?

      And of course no action features.

      I guess someone must be buying them, other than the comic shops looking for that SUPER HOT LIMITED THING that they can sell for triple MSRP because RARE COLLECTABLE.

      feh. I gots me some Kamen Riders I need to unbox and pose. šŸ™‚

    2. I completely agree with the skepticism here. Personally, I wouldn’t pocket dip for the jumbo hype, but after seeing a whole lot of them at Celebration this past weekend, they do have a certain appeal when you look at them in display. I wouldn’t touch it, but I get it.

  2. Thank goodness they got rid of those pesky knee joints on the SP Wonder Woman. I mean, it looks good leaving the appearance of them there – just remove that annoying functionality of actually having a joint there.

    Yeah, that is much better.

    1. *boggle*

      Huh. I think you’re right, those legs don’t have knee joints! Fooled me completely!

      Also, at 12 inches (or so) tall, aren’t these shorter than all the other ‘jumbo’ retro figures done to date? So you can’t have your jumbo Star Wars figures fight the jumbo Super Powers figures.

      Geh. I can’t get Kamen Rider Black RX to look good on his motorcycle. Guess he’s gonna have to do something else. šŸ™‚

    2. Well it does say final product may change so its possible the knee joints havent been put in yet.
