Dr. Henry Pym's screw-ups far outweigh his successes, what with that whole spousal abuse rep, and by creating the Ultron A.I. which is pretty much on a course for one day ruling the entire planet. However, there's no denying that Pym Particles are pretty cool and using them for growing to enormous sizes has advantages, and now NECA and WizKids are showing how useful that can truly be-- in the realm of Heroclix, at least! Yep, hot on the heels of the Marvel Galactic Guardians set of Heroclix, comes Chaos War with the advance SDCC-Exclusive Colossal Heroclix figure being none other than Henry Pym a.k.a. Giant-Man!
Read on for all the info and photos of Giant-Man!
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be giving special sneak peaks out our 2012 convention exclusives, and we start today with the brand-spanking new 2012 Convention Exclusive Marvel HeroClix Giant-Man Super Booster! Priced at $39.99, Giant-Man also includes a proportionate Ant-Man HeroClix figure that’s invisible!
No, really, like he’s not there. Set to the scale of Giant-Man, you can’t see Henry Pym when he shrinks all the way down to Ant-Man size. Also, when Marvel HeroClix first premiered way back in 2002, a similar Ant-Man was offered at conventions that year, so this Ant-Man makes a perfect bonus piece for Pym as Giant-Man. As you can see above, there’s a base with Ant-Man on it, and you’ll just have to take our word for it that he’s there. You can’t possibly imagine how hard it was to sculpt something so small that it’s invisible to the naked eye.
Henry Pym AKA Giant-Man first appeared in Marvel’s Tales to Astonish #56 in 1964, having already made his debut as Ant-Man in issue #35 two years earlier. Rumors have been kicking around for a while now about a movie in the works, so we thought no better time to debut this Giant-Man Chaos War HeroClix!
Like all of the figures in the Chaos War collection, Giant-Man is gorgeously detailed and accurate to the comics. He’ll be available at San Diego Comic Con and other upcoming 2012 conventions.
