It’s a testament to Brad Bird’s skills as a storyteller that The Iron Giant still holds a soft spot in the hearts of countless fans, even if the animated film wasn’t as big a blockbuster as Bird’s later Pixar efforts. And if you’ve got an extra $US300 lying around, you can finally bring home your own version of the Iron Giant thanks to Mondo — just not so giant.
The perfectly detailed figure — created using the digital models from the actual film — has over 30 points of articulation, two interchangeable heads with glowing eyes, a swappable weaponised “War Arm”, and even a tiny version of Hogarth that your giant can hold in its hand. Available sometime later this year, the figure even has built-in sound effects and quotes from the film, if you’re feeling particularly nostalgic about the movie. [Mondo via Plastic and Plush]
