THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN figures are on their way! Pre-Order now and June will bring the first wave of extremely awesome 3.75 inch figures. Check them out:
Mega-Cannon Spider-Man, Symbiote Strike Spider-Man, Capture Trap Spider-Man, Hydro Attack Spider-Man, Grappling Hook Spider-Man, Symbiote Snap Venom, Glider Attack Green Goblin and Power Arms Dr. Octopus make up the first series of figures and grossly overstate the movie we’re all anticipating this summer– I don’t know how many times Spider-Man will use a mega cannon, but I have the feeling it will be less than once. Still, the figures are pretty rad and you can grab ‘em individually or as a complete set.

Andrew Garfield looks an excellent fit for Peter Parker, while Emma Stone is always popular and Rhys Ifans seems to be having fun as Curt Connors/ The Lizard. Director Marc Webb looks to have woven a decent story, even if the whole thing does look a little CGI-happy. There are a couple of exciting action beats in here, as well as some nice exchanges between the leads. Garfield also gets to crack wise a little, giving us hope that this incarnation might well have fun on the agenda.
The Amazing Spider-Man is out on July 3rd, and also stars Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, C Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan and Chris Zylka.

When they first showed off the new Lizard from the upcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, it was surely only a matter of time before the collectors wanted to snag a figure, statue or any other collectible featuring Spidey’s reptilian nemesis. Fortunately, the wait is over.
Capturing the Rhys Ifans character perfectly, this Diamond Select figure is designed and sculpted by Gentle Giant, whose work has never been anything but awesome. Standing about 7 inches tall, he boasts an impressive 16 points of articulation, meaning that when you set up your inevitable NYC Spider-Man diorama, the options are pretty much endless. Or, if you’re an in-the-box collector, you’ll be pleased with the over-sized packaging.
