Left coin-holding arm raises to drop coin in mouth
Upper torso tilts back
Right leg raises (the one with Hogarth sitting on)
Says phrase from movie “Crunchy Delicious Metal”
Poseable right arm
The Iron Giant is a 1999 animated film about a boy who discovers a fifty-foot, metal-eating robot. The film is based on the 1968 novel ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, which was published in the United States as ‘The Iron Giant’. The Iron Giant is also the given name of the robot in the film.
Trendmasters were best known for creating licensed toys depicting characters from popular Science Fiction or Fantasy films. It closed doors in 2002, and its IP assets were acquired by JAKKS Pacific.
The Iron Giant Coin Bank by Trendmasters. This collectible toy robot money bank was produced in 1999 and is becoming increasingly rare to find. The Iron Giant is a classic Warner Bros. animated film based on the novel by Ted Hughes. A must watch if you haven’t seen it already!
This Iron Giant animated bank has the robot sitting on a scrapheap, saying ‘Crunchy Delicious Metal’ (a phrase from the movie) as he chomps on your money. Hogarth sits atop his knee and is really tiny in comparison to the 12 inch figure.
