The other bounty hunters refer to Zuckuss as “the Uncanny One.” This ammonia-breathing tracker holds a secret though. He has an affinity for The Force. Gentle Giant digitally scanned a mint 3.75-inch Kenner original to act as the basis for this big guy. Using roto and injection molding, this 12-inch bounty hunter has been faithfully reproduced and comes with a blaster rifle. The release also features a 1980 Empire Strikes Back-inspired blister card and “45 back” artwork, along with a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell. Jumbo Zuckuss releases in the first quarter of 2014 or you can preorder here

Invincible recently passed its 100th issue, and Diamond Select Toys plans to commemorate the occasion with a box set of Minimates. Invincible, Atom Eve, Omni-Man and Allen the Alien will each stand 2-inch high and feature 14 points of articulation. Look for these to release in October.
Figures Toy Company will unleash a second wave of “World’s Greatest Heroes!” figures.
