Hasbro is Crowdfunding a Huge 26″ Sentinel

Straight out of the nightmares from my head comes a new 26 inch sentinel that will accompany your figures nicely. That is if you have a big enough shelf for it. Sentinels are those terrifying creatures in X-Men that hunt down those of us with the mutant gene. And let me tell you this new figure they are creating is definitely one for your collection. If only to overcome your fears..

Ever since I saw the first episode of “X-Men: The Animated Series” I have been terrified of these guys. They are relentless and won’t stop until they get their target. The two parter “Night of the Sentinels” really made a big impression, so now I’m going to have to get one of these just to look my fear in the eye and say “I own you”.

But hey you don’t need such a complicated reason to pick one up. Right now they are looking for 6,000 backers for the project with a limit of five entries each. At the time of this writing they have well surpassed that number. The price tag on this is 349.99 but when I tell you what it comes with… well the price is well worth it.

Hasbro

Its body a towering, technological marvel, the Sentinel scans the world for its quarry, a searching light emanating from its chest, its glowing eyes a warning… and a threat. Programmed with only one objective, to destroy all mutant life on Earth, the Sentinel will not hesitate, will not falter, and will never ever stop hunting.

Rising from the pages of Marvel comics, appearing in everything from cartoons to movies to video games, the Sentinel is as a monumental part of Marvel lore, an iconic enemy of the X-Men, and, now, the first-ever Marvel Legends HasLab project.
