You’ve waited a long time – over 30 years, in fact – for him to arrive, and now he’s finally here! Diamond Select Toys’ vintage-style Marvel Retro Spider-Man Action Figure Gift Set is in stores now, inspired by the classic Mego figures of the 1970s, and it’s been warmly received by Mego collectors and Spider-Man fans alike! Check out the gallery for pictures of the figure in action!
Painstakingly designed by the craftsmen at EMCE Toys, the Amazing Spider-Man is dressed as he first appeared in 1973, in his original “circle suit” costume. However, the head and costume are removable, allowing you to use the additional heads, hands, outfits and accessories in the set to turn him into Daily Bugle
photographer Peter Parker, or even a more modern comic version of the wall-crawler!
The 1970s-style Spider-Man figure comes packaged in a Mego-style window box inside a larger collector tray, and the additional outfits and parts are displayed alongside it. The set will also contain a miniature booklet outlining the history of the character.
Future figures in the line will include Captain America, Thor and Wolverine, and each will come with alternate outfits and parts like Spidey. Each set will be limited to just 3,000 pieces, and retail for approximately $80. Pre-orders are open for Spider- Man now, and he will be on store shelves in late 2014.
