Cyclops is a mutant with the ability to fire force beams from his eyes. Professor Charles Xavier, who had been observing Scott's development, discovered the only way for Cyclops to control the beams is through the use of ruby quartz lenses. Professor X had some special glasses made for Cyclops and took him under his wing to train him in his powers at his special school for mutants. Cyclops is the 19th release in Gentle Giant's popular Marvel animated statues and is based on the art from Giant Size Little Marvel AvX comic book. Cyclops is decked out in his blue and gold X-men uniform with a cool reflective visor. The Cyclops Statue was digitally sculpted and carefully printed on state of the art 3D Systems 3D printers. The high-resolution prints were then used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this animated collectible. Each animated statue is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity.
