Twenty-two years ago, The Iron Giant stomped into theatres and delivered one of the greatest animated films to ever come out of a studio that wasn’t Disney. The beloved metallic goliath remains in the hearts of animation fans to this day. Now, the heroic robot is getting his own ReAction figures, thanks to Super7.
Super7, the company well known for producing made-to-order action figures designed after the 3.75″ toys of the 1980s, is producing three action figures based on The Iron Giant. These include the Giant as he appears throughout most of the movie, the “Superman” Giant and the Giant in battle mode.
When a giant robot falls from the sky near Rockwell and is found by a young Hogarth Hughes, a story of discovery, adventure, and redemption begins to unfold. This 3.75” articulated Iron Giant ReAction figure features intricate sculpting and is accompanied by a 1” tall Hogarth figure. Add this Iron Giant ReAction figure to your collection and let it be a link to the movie that introduced us to a giant robot with an even bigger heart.
The Iron Giant doesn’t want to be seen as dangerous or bad, even when playing pretend with his pal Hogarth. Rather than be the comic book robot villain Atomo, he wants to be a good guy. This 3.75” articulated “Super” Iron Giant ReAction figure features intricate sculpting and the large red “S” the Iron Giant wore to show Hogarth he wanted to be a hero like Superman. This Iron Giant ReAction figure is a good reminder that regardless of the pressures and stresses in our lives, we can still be the hero we really desire to be.
Rounding out the trio is the Giant in his battle mode. This comes at the end of the film as the robot’s true nature is revealed, and he goes on a rampage to destroy anything in his path. Who knew that a small bump on the head was all that kept us safe?
The Iron Giant is generally docile and curious as his friendship with young Hogarth develops. However, if provoked, you better watch out! This 3.75” articulated Attacking Iron Giant features all the fearsome weapons that the Iron Giant is capable of unleashing when his attack protocols are activated. Tri-Scorpion cannons, Energy Claw, Spark Spinner Gun, and more…they’re all here!
Merchandise for The Iron Giant isn’t something we typically see in stores. However, recently I saw a “walking” Iron Giant toy at Walmart, which was a cool find. I remember the initial toyline that launched with the film. If I recall, it didn’t sell too well. Since then, there have been a couple of figures or statues here and there. If there were ever a company to do the loveable mechanoid justice, it would be Super7.
The three figures are currently available to order separately via Super 7. Each Iron Giant is $18. Click here to collect all three.
