Diamond Select Toys has announced that the Superior Spider-Man is getting the action figure treatment – just in time for Peter Parker to return… makes sense to me, and regardless if Doc Ock Spider-Man remains, I think this figure looks great.
Capturing Spidey as he appears in recent issues of The Superior Spider-Man, where he has become the unwilling host body to the consciousness of Doctor Octopus, this 7-inch figure features 16 points of articulation and was sculpted by Sam Greenwell. The figure will come packaged with a detailed display base depicting the aftermath of a battle with the Sinister Six, and will arrive on store shelves in the famous, display-ready Marvel Select packaging, with reference artwork of Spider-Man on the spine.
“It’s a known fact that I’m a huge fan of Spider-Man,” said Diamond Select Toys President Chuck Terceira in a prepared statement, “so the opportunity to make a new, more current Spider-Man figure for the Disney Store was a dream come true. Their support of the line makes great figures like this possible, and Sam really knocked this figure out of the park.”
BOO! It’s only available at Disney and Marvel stores!? That’s okay, both stores are online, and The Superior Spider-Man will be mine.
