It was the inevitable next step. After reproducing vintage Star Wars figures in a 12″ scale for eighty bucks a pop, Gentle Giant has started with G.I. Joe, though they’ve curiously chosen to start with Rock ‘n Roll instead of, say, Snake Eyes. I guess it’s so that when you do dirty deeds to scrape the money together, you can say you sold your soul for Rock ‘n Roll.
Looks like this is a full-on trend now, with Mattel doing the same thing for vintage Masters of the Universe. Yet I don’t know one person who’s actually buying them.
I’ll consider it if they do Visionaries, though. Giant holograms would be cool.
