While Marvel showcased many action figures from both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger at this year’s Comic-Con, you knew they had to be holding at least a few things back. Now, thanks to the magic of eBay, the first image of a Frost Giant action figure has been released. If you’re not familiar with the universe of Thor, here’s what wikipedia has on them:
These giants, also known as Etins are enormous beings who reside in the other-dimensional realm of Jotunheim, one of the Nine Worlds in Asgardian cosmology. They are the traditional enemies of the gods of Asgard, with whom they have fought with for millennia, trying to bring eternal night to Asgard.
