I didn’t get into collecting action figures until about a decade ago, and didn’t get into the Marvel Select toys until two years ago. Unfortunately, that means if I want to track down a favorite figure from days gone by, I’m going to have to surf the web and probably pay a high price. Today, Diamond Select Toys announced it is re-issuing some of the more popular figures, and that is a big plus for toy collectors.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures has found its Norman Osborn for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie.
Diamond Select Toys sent over a nice picture gallery of its Marvel Select Green Goblin and Spider-Man figures going head to head with each other.
Diamond Select Toys has announced that it is taking the Green Goblin and turning it into a 7-inch action figure.
Diamond Select Toys has announced that the company is revisiting old Spider-Man foes, and have decided that the Green Goblin will be the next character to get the Marvel Select Figure treatment.
The new Green Goblin figure is based on the Marvel Milestones statue of the character that Diamond Select Toys released back in 2004, featuring a more modern take on the villain than our initial, classic interpretation. When not posed on hie Goblin Glider base, he stands 7 inches tall and features Marvel Select’s standard 16 points of articulation.
This probably has nothing to do with the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie, but it is going to be one of those figures/statues/toys that will look awesome on the shelf.
The hordes have moved on, which means it is time to offer up another Rapid-Fire Roundup of San Diego Comic-Con News, distilled to its very essence; which makes it quite powerful, so use caution when reading.

Writer Randy Jandt makes his “The Spectacular Spider-Man” debut with a tight, exciting, frequently funny script that offers Doctor Octopus entrÃ©e into the series this Saturday, May 3 in the all-new episode, “Reaction.” The episode, directed by Jennifer Coyle, premieres at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT on Kids’ WB! on The CW.
In the episode, the nebbishy Dr. Otto Octavius is painfully transformed â€“ by the meddling hands of the Green Goblin â€“ into the menacing Doctor Octopus. The newest villain to hit town, Doc Ock releases his initial anger on Norman Osborne before turning his attention toward Spider-Man as the pair battle for the ultimate power source to Doc Ock’s extended limbs.
Jandt took a few moments this week to answer three quick questions regarding his thought process in penning the script for the episode.
