HALT MUTANT! Prepare for a Sentinel scan!

When it comes to the X-Men, the children of tomorrow have several high-ranking enemies. From Apocalypse and Mr Sinister, to Cassandra Nova and the department in Disney that is really pissed off that they can’t get a slice of the profitable movie pie over at FOX, it ain’t easy being a mutant.

But beyond genetic discrimination, there’s one other big problem with being a mutant: Giant robots. Or more specifically, giant Sentinel robots which can lock on to a mutant power signature and introduce  Homo Superior to Machina Hand Laser. Still think being a mutie is cool?

A symbol of mankind’s fear and hatred of mutants, Sentinels have remained a persistent threat for the X-men since the 1960s. Programmed to hunt and destroy, the immense robot is powered up with technologically advanced weapons, boasting his iconic blue and purple color scheme and brilliant light-up features.

Swap-out head sculpts represent the villain’s classic and modern appearances and the Sentinel’s head can be repositioned to search for targets in every direction, allowing collectors to create the optimal mutant-hunting display. Standing a staggering 32? tall, the Sentinel Maquette is a stunning addition for any Marvel or X-men collection.

That’s a bloody tall collectible. I’d recommend not having it anywhere near your Kung-Fu Snikt! edition Wolverine. Put it near the Blob and Toad inaction figures that grandma got you though. Nobody likes Captain Cankles and his bouncy sidekick. Sideshow says that this bad boy will cost $899 when it is unleashed from the Mastermold to hunt the inferior Sentinel robots from X-Men: Days of Future Past next month.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

      Did they use a guy the size of Rince for scale?

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Just like the ones from the animated series.
    LOVE IT.
    What it does do, however, is remind me how terrible apocalypse looks in the new movie 🙁

      Animated series, cheesy as Gambit and Jubilee were, for the win. FTW

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Loved it.
        Those two were quite cheesy, haha.

        • miaau

          quite? QUITE? does not begin to do it Justice. in a League of their own.

          Look, Storm was SUPER cheesy and speechy and she came off NORMAL compared to them.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            At least the Storm in the animated series was still better than Halle Berry trying to be Storm.
            But yes, fair enough, VERY cheesy. Especially Jubilee. Wow.

          • miaau

            Halle Berry, still better than Cat Woman.

            Who played Mistique, she was cool.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Oh, I never watched Cat Woman, luckily.
            Mistique was good, I agree.
            But Storm is supposed to be a big and strong woman. I just never got that feeling from Halle Berry. She seemed so soft and small. Just doesn’t suit the character imo.

    32? Microns? Meters? Inches? How tall is tall.

    It does look good, no matter how tall
