A fan-favorite X-Men gets his own animated statue

Gentle Giant has done it again. Another amazing statue based on the artwork of Skottie Young. This time around is one of my all time favorite characters, the X-Men’s Nightcrawler. 

This line of statues has just been impressive. Each one of them really looks like they jumped off the comic page. This one is no exception. Nightcrawler is taken from the cover of Amazing X-Men #1. You can see from this side by side comparison:

Such an amazing likeness. Sculptor Casen Barnard has done an amazing job capturing Young’s art. It is so uncanny how it looks exactly like the comic book cover.

I didn’t see any paint bleed. In fact, the paint job is pretty darn great. I especially love the separate tone around his eyes. 

This is a must for your collection, whether you are either an X-Man fan or a fan or Skottie Young. If you aren’t collecting this line, I highly recommend that you do.

Marvel Animated-Style Nightcrawler Statue is available at most comic stores or online store.

Many thanks to Diamond Select for allowing us to check out this statue.
