A close-up on the ‘Ant-Man’ box
Marvel’s tiniest hero is going big for Comic-Con. With Ant-Man set to hit theaters July 17, Hasbro will offer two different sets featuring the itty-bitty crimefighter at the geek-friendly fest, and Yahoo Movies has the exclusive reveal.
First up is the 0.75-inch figure — “that’s smaller than a penny (or a really big ant)“ as Hasbro helpfully points out — and is the littlest ever created by the toy makers. The $9.99 mini Ant-Man, which has zero points of articulation, is modeled after Paul Rudd’s character in the film and comes in matchbox-mimicking packaging.
The 0.75 inch Ant-Man figure
Then there’s the more conventional figures in this deluxe pack that highlights the hero’s size-shifting ability in the comics. Five different versions are included: 12-inch Giant Man, 6-inch Goliath, 3.75-inch Hank Pym (who comes in a lab coat with swappable heads), 1.5-inch Scott Lang/Ant-Man, and 1-inch Hank Pym/Ant-Man. They are packaged inside a cardboard helmet (with swiveling antennae!) and will be available for $64.99.
The Ant-Man set open and closed
Comic-con International runs July 8-12 in San Diego. Following the show, a limited number of the action figures will be available via HasbroToyShop.com.
