Secret Wars was a 12 part series from Marvel Comics that introduced the character of The Beyonder to the Marvel Universe. The Beyonder, assembles a planet from chunks of other planets and dubs it Battleworld . He then kidnaps several heroes and villains from Earth, and transplants them on Battleworld to fight for The Beyonder’s amusement. Wolverine is transported to Battleworld with many of his X-Men teammates, and plays a huge role in the ensuing combat. The Secret Wars event crossed over several Marvel Comics titles from May of 1984 to April of 1985. The series was tied into the immensely popular Secret Wars action figure collection. The line spawned 2 series of figures, as well as vehicles and playsets. Digitally scanned from the original Secret Wars figures and reproduced in 12 scale, no detail has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics with original articulation, this jumbo figure includes his faithfully re-produced clip on claws. To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with a Secret Wars-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.
