Back in 1999, director Brad Bird gave us a timeless classic with the animated sci-fi, comedy, “Iron Giant.” The film stars the voice talents of Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick, Jr., Eli Marienthal, Christopher McDonald, John Mahoney and Vin Diesel as the lovable Iron Giant. (Is it just us or have two of Diesel’s best roles been voice work?)

Today Mondo has announced the pre-sale info for their “The Iron Giant” deluxe figure and it, as you would expect, is highly desirable. With over 30 points of articulation and standing about 16 inches high, it also comes packed with great features:
– Two interchangeable heads with light up eyes
– Magnets “S” that can be detached from the Seasfood sign and attached to his chest
– Switch-out “War Arm”
– Hogarth mini-figure
– A broken girder for the Iron Giant to snack on
– Sound Feature with favorite quotes from the film
As an added bonus, or to make the frenzy even greater, there will be a special limited edition that comes with the “Hand Under Foot” accessory which is modeled after the Iron Giant’s detached hand that runs amok in the barn.
Mondo shared the fact that they were recently able to show this amazing figure to Brad Bird at Skywalker Ranch. Judging by the photos, I’d say he wants one like the rest of us.
This figure is a must-have for fans of the film and will go on sale at a random time on January, 22, 2015. Follow Mondo on TWITTER for the exact time of the drop and good luck.
