Gentle Giant plans for G.I. Joe have been confirmed – Jumbo O-Ring figures incoming!

Just yesterday we reported about the mysterious advertisement on the Gentle Giant Facebook page and hypothesized about what it might mean… now we find those hypotheses confirmed! Gentle Giant is indeed doing jumbo sized versions of the vintage o-ring figures! They’ve revealed a few of them at ComicCon already, with images courtesy of HissTank.com. The following figures have been revealed:

– Zap
– Stalker
– Grunt
– Snake Eyes
– Rock n Roll

My opinions on these? Mixed, to be honest. I love what they’re doing, and it’s a fun idea, but I’m not sure these will draw me in. Eventually I’ll likely end up with a few, but I don’t see myself going whole hog, especially on the straight arm versions. I will admit, though, it’s great that they come with their gear. That’s a cool touch.

Very cool to see someone investing in the brand, though, I hope they catch on with the collecting community! Thanks again to HissTank.com for the images.

EDIT – Big thanks to Matt from Twitter and AwesomeToyBlog for snagging some more great images! They’re added to the gallery below.
