The Iron Giant Collectible Figure The 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.
This timeline was recently published in the LEGO Club Magazine and on it’s website. It has a few flaws - e.g. Jar Jar Bings was released 1999 not 2000 - and the translations have sometimes been a bit weird but generally it provides a nice overview of key events in the development of LEGO minifigures.
