We know what you’ve been thinking: I know I have the Amazing Spider-Man figure from Diamond Select Toys, but why can’t I have two more? Why can’t I have three Spider-Man figures that are just different enough to be worth me buying them?! Why Odin, why?! Well, now you’re oddly-obsessive prayers have been answered since DST and the Disney Store have teamed up to release two new versions of the great Marvel Select The Amazing Spider-Man figure (that we reviewed here) based on the movie with the same name. The best part? These wall-crawlers will be on Disney Store shelves and online, if previous M.S. releases are any indication, this month!
Read on for all the info, along with some cool street-level pics of the figures!
Like flies caught in a web, everyone is buzzing about the new Amazing Spider-Man movie, and Diamond Select Toys has already put out some amazing collectables based on the film! In addition to a movie-inspired series of their popular Minimates mini-figures, DST also recently shipped their Marvel Select Spider-Man and Lizard action figures to comic shops and specialty stores. Well, now MarvelStore.com, DisneyStore.com and physical Disney Store locations will have two special editions of Spidey, as well!
The first exclusive Marvel Select figure will be a version of Spider-Man with interchangeable gloveless hands, plus an interchangeable unmasked Peter Parker head, featuring the likeness of Andrew Garfield. The other exclusive figure will be an entirely metallic version of the regular Spidey figure, depicting the extra-shiny side of the new, big-screen Spidey-suit! Look for both special editions to arrive on MarvelStore.com, DisneyStore.com and Disney Store shelves in early July!
