Was in Walmart today looking for Star Wars (nothing..... Big Shock) and happened to see Spiderman 3 toys sitting on the shelves. They had the new Spidey Walkie Talkies with all 3 villians partnered of course with Spidey. The New Spidey Web Shooter, Spidey 3 Monster Truck Assortment and a Spiderman 3 Monopoly.
The Walkie Talkies were alright with Venom being painted in a Dark indiego Blue coloring.
The other sets with Sandman and the new Green Goblin named Harry Goblin in which Harry has a wierd looking facemask instead of the original Goblin gear.

Harry's goblin suit reminds me of the Yellow and Black suit of Kamakura from Sigma 6 mini figures.

I haven't seen the actual figures yet but I would imagine that they will be hitting the shelves soon. Afterall the figures for Spidey 2 came out about a month before the movie. I think that once April is here we will see the figures for all of the new summer movies hitting the shelves.

A buddy of mine spotted cases of the figures at 2 different Vegas-era WMs last night, the cases had "no earlier than" shelf-dates I believe he said of March 23rd.

I was in WalMart earlier tonight and spotted some Spidey 3 stuff. They had some of the small 2-packs, like the SW galactic heroes. I tried to buy one of them just for the hell of it but they came up as "do not sell". The lady at the register said they had been recalled due to small parts.

Yeah, whatever. :)

I've seen the Spider-Man 3 Superhero Squad figures at TRU. I believe the sets go something like this: Classic Spidey and Venom, Black Spidey and Sandman, Peter Parker and New Goblin. I didn't buy any, though. I've decided what I'm going to pick up from this line. Just Black Spidey, Sandman, Venom and the New Goblin. The scale thing bothers me a bit. The Toy Biz figures were 6 inches, but the Hasbro figures are 5 inches, right? So far, the Black Spidey looks the best out of this line.

Yeah, they did shrink them down to 5''.

I'll probably do the SM3 figures this weekend. I got the figures from 1-2, so I need 3 to complete the line. I'm a completist. God help me.

I was a completist of the Spider-Man movie line until they came out with 50 Spideys for the second movie. Then I just got the Super Posable Spider-Man and Doc Ock. Now I just have at least one of every character. From the first movie I have SA Spider-Man, SA Green Goblin, Battle Damage Spider-Man, Battle Damage Green Goblin, Peter Parker, Mary Jane, JJ Jameson and Norman Osborne. From the second one I just have SA Spider-Man and Doc Ock. And as I said before, I'm going to try to get Black Spidey, Sandman, Venom and the New Goblin from "Spider-Man 3".

I was at a different WM earlier tonight and they had some SpiderMan 3 toys also...I scanned them at the price finder thing and it came up as "sale not allowed."

I am getting some serious flashbacks of EP3 toys.

Black Spidey there doesn't do it for me, the articulation looks funky at the elbows and knees, and the head is way underscaled. This line is going to be a hard sell for me at this point, but I'm a sucker for Spidey and probably will partake.


I was a completist of the Spider-Man movie line until they came out with 50 Spideys for the second movie. Then I just got the Super Posable Spider-Man and Doc Ock. I was more selective with both films, but SM2 has an awesome figure that has magnets in his hands and feet, and is articulated enough to use it nicely, I have it on my lamp now and it looks awesome.

Was that the one that came with the top of a building? If so, I had that one too, I just forgot that I had it until now. I remember I had it on the fridge and it looked kind of cool.

Yeah, top of a building and a fat flagpole - the accessory didn't work out that well, he's supposed to spin down it, but the metal's light and he falls off easily. Luckily, he sticks to fridges and lamps and such beautifully, glad to hear you've got him, IMO that's a figure that really works perfectly with the idea of Spider-Man: it's fun, it's accurate, it's sculpted neutrally, it's very poseable, and it's affordable.

I've seen the figures at Kohls but didn't bother scanning them. I saw two Spidey 3 Mega Bloks sets at K-Mart today. Both sets build a two-legged mech and you can choose between the classic red or symbiote Spider-Man.

I saw a couple Spidey toys at Target in North Hollywood tonight, the first was the new 5" sized figure with a spider-car, not a particularly cool-looking one but ok I suppose. The other was a Target-exclusive battle pack of Spidey versus Sandman, the top of the box was partly sandy too, they were repaints - Spidey was shiny with some sand splotches and Sandman was more sandy than the regular version. The headsculpt on Sandman was decent, but the figures didn't really look all that great to me, the new scale bodies don't quite work and the missing and alternate articulation is questionable - the feet can't move at all!

They're up here at TRU en masse, with huge cardboard displays at the front of the store. The packaging is all very nicely "unified", no matter which type of toy you're looking for.

The 5" figures look nice at first, but upon closer inspection they're all gimicky, and suffer from "cartoon-face-itis".

The closest I came to buying a figure (and it wasn't close) was the deluxe Venom - he's an interesting blackish bluey purple color, not black by any stretch.

Picked them up this morning!! While the scale thing does irk me, I'm enjoying the look of the figures and am pretty pleased. I don't open them mind you, but in the package, I like them! Picked up the Goblin without mask (rolling attack) at Wal-mart, which I was REALLY surprised to see as I didn't see him on any online stores or anything, not even at Hasbro's online store. I ran into a fellow collector at a TRU and he said he helped set up the SM figures last night at a wal-mart and that they were only on the aisle displays, a few to a display. Dunno what this means, but it's still something to consider. I picked up all the figures I wanted and am pretty content! HH! :thumbsup:

wasn't impressed with the selection and the prices turned me off all together. $9 for the basic and $15 for the deluxe, no thanks. was going today to get a black costume spidey and venom but passed. would rather take the $18 bucks and get three more Galactic Marines or Airborne Troopers or even Concept Stormies.

I went to Wal Mart this morning and picked up a few of them. They had a huge display that took up half the toy aisle. They even had a guy dressed up like Spider-Man there for the kids. I got the SA Classic costume and Black costume Spideys, the Capture Web Venom (this is the exact same as the Deluxe Venom, but $8 cheaper), Punch Attack Sandman (the only good one in the line), and the Rolling Attack New Goblin with removable mask (like Guyute, I was also surprised to see this since I didn't see pictures anywhere). And that's all she wrote for the Spider Man 3 line. Those were the only figures I saw that were worth getting. Some of the figures looked like trash, like the Peter Parker figure that quick changes into Spider-Man. There was so much stuff, though. I started getting flashbacks of April 2, 2005.

Both Target & TRU have the figs for $8 instead of WM's $8.63, and TRU may have some sort of deal going until the end of the month if you spend $25 on Spidey items. But WM has more variety of figs than the other guys, like a whole wave more.


First, let me say that the new scale is a disappointment, going from the awesome 6" line to a limiting 5" line while staying at the same pricepoint is a wasted effort. That said, this smaller size does have more of a "fun toy" feel than the 6-inch line, something to be played with above all. The launch at Wal-mart had probably 3 waves of basic figures, every movie character had at least 2 figures including the villains which is a little crazy, many were gimmick figures, and they knew to include movie-1 Green Goblin, movie-2 Doc Ock, Kraven the Hunter, Scorpion, and Rhino as well as just the bland "New Goblin" figures, Sandman figures, and (blue, why?) Venom figures - unfortunately for Scorpion and Rhino, their figures got less quality treatment so they're a tad cartoony-looking and limited in articulation.

I'm going to try to review the new figures in a vacuum, ignoring the previous larger-scale movie lines as much as possible, I'm sure I'll slip but I'm trying to take these as their own thing because these are what they are and there's no way to turn this bus around (but hopefully at some point Hasbro will revisit these movie characters in the Marvel Legends line).

Black-costume Spider-Man (super articulated) - Unlike Hasbro's Venom figures which are all blue, Spidey here is a shiny, dark charcoal gray with slightly lighter webbing, a light-gray spider emblem front and back, and silver eyes - this is a good approximation of what the trailers have shown of this movie costume. Unlike most of the Spidey and Venom figures I saw with sloppy paint, this Black Spidey is very neatly painted. Black Spidey's body is a different sculpt from the other Spider-Man figures in this line, and that presents a problem as here he's half a head taller than the other Spider-man figs and the New Goblin. The sculpt's other failing is that, while he's bigger than the other Spidey figs, his head is slightly smaller than theirs (which are small to begin with). One pro in the sculpting is the scale-like pattern on every piece, this works great with the shiny gray plastic. The body is a little more pumped than the red & blue Spidey, that I suppose fits with "more power" aspect of the black suit. Spidey's left hand is an under-handed gripper, while his right hand is an under-handed web-shoot with very long fingers. Spidey's sole accessory is a black rubbery web with 3 suction cups, this is a totally different web from red & blue Spidey's web at least, but why Hasbro has a call-out of "super poseable web!" when it's just rubber is beyond me, and the cardback makes a big deal out of the fact that Spidey can grab the web. The suction cups on the web can be removed and replaced easily, there's no mention of that on the packaging.

Hasbro defines "super articulated" a little loosely here, while he does have a ball-jointed head it has limited range; the arms have universal-jointed shoulders, double-jointed elbows, hinge wrist, and swivel upper arm, but no swivel wrist which is very limiting; the mid-torso is a universal-joint, but again with limited range; the legs have universal-jointed hips, double-hinged knees with a swivel at the top, and hinged ankles but no swivel there which is another big limitation. This figure integrates the articulation into the sculpt far better than the super articulated red & blue Spidey, that's not to say it's perfection because it's not even close (the arms are especially bad in this respect) but the mid-torso, hips, and that new style of knee joint (it's now inserted into a "cup" in the thigh) are superior to regular Spidey.

Overall, this might be a fun toy for kids, but the smaller size means less-subtle articulation, and removing 2 of the most important joints is tragic. The body sculpt is pretty nice and the paint work is surprisingly solid, but the figure being slightly bigger scale than the others and having a tiny head hold him back again. Finally, if you're going to charge a painful $8 a pop, include not just a web but another accessory like a clip-on web-blast or something. Grade: C


New Goblin (disk launching sky stick) - This is the first Harry as Goblin figure, the second one I saw had a removable mask showing Harry's face, and a better sky stick (that claimed to have rolling action but I couldn't see it in package), but significantly less articulation and I think a body action gimmick. This New Gobby I have here is "super articulated" and his sky stick has a permanent orange flame out the back and launches disks. Gobby is pretty much what you see in the trailer - a basic black body suit with light web-gear belts here and there, a green full-face mask and exposed head of hair; one cool touch is the separate-piece belt with (non-functional) holster that plugs onto his leg. Goblin Harry's build is a little muscular but not ridiculously so, it's a good in-between. You could say the sculpt is soft and to a degree it is (I picked him in part due to his articulation and high number of accessories, but also because his generic look can fit in with other lines in this 5" scale) but looking closer it seems to be intentional to make the bodysuit look a little padded, the other details like (non-functional) scabbard on the back, the gauntlet claw, and the boots have real depth to them. The only real complaint I have in the sculpt is the left hand which has been enlarged slightly and opened wide to accommodate the pumpkin bomb (yet it still doesn't fit!).

Articulation starts with a ball-jointed head which has a little more range than Spidey's but still could be better; the arms have universal-jointed shoulders and double-hinge elbows, but lack swivels on upper and lower which limits posing a little; torso sports a front-bending hinge and below that a standard waist swivel; legs have universal-jointed hips, double-jointed knees with rotation at the top, and hinged ankles. The elbows and knees are the same kinds of joint as on Spidey, but both are a little more restricted, though they still do a pretty decent job.

Accessories are decent in number. The sky stick board is white with black and the aforementioned translucent orange flame which also weakly pops out the large black disks that can be loaded into the middle, the disk-launching feature puts a gap in the midsection at one side and an extra bulge in the back, but neither bother me; the board has 2 pegs to accommodate the holes in Harry's feet which work well, and the flame keeps it from tipping backwards when set down. There's also an orange pumpkin bomb, decent sculpt and green accents, but is a little large for the hand. Then there's the blade-bomb which is all-silver and a bit wider than it should be but it looks plenty nasty. Finally, Harry's sword which is an unusual techno shape, silver with a dark green handle, and fits great in the figure's right hand.

Overall, New Goblin is not the most visually exciting villain, but this figure does capture the character pretty well and delivers most of the articulation you'd ever want for this guy alongside some decent accessories. I think I like him more as a generic villain figure than as the character, which I suppose means he's got the toy thing working right. Grade: B-


Spider-Man (super-articulated, red & blue costume) - this is the main Spidey of the line for me, if a Spidey toy can't do the cool spine-bending acrobatics iconic to the character then he's just not Spidey enough for me. Unlike Black Spidey above, this figure is the right height scale with the other characters in the line, and he's not quite as beefed up either. But all is not right in Marvel's New York. First, the paint: be DILIGENT about selecting the deco, I saw so many of this figure that were painted badly - watch the web and emblems especially. The figure's got silver webs painted over sculpting, the silver's thick and lacks subtlety, and it's far too easy for it to go astray and miss the sculpting. He's sporting the pearly eye pieces which are cool. The black spider emblem on the front is raised and painted, again here's a department where I saw the majority had some of the black missing. The figure's main colors are red and dark blue, the red is not nearly dark enough though so it's more like comic or cartoon Spidey than movie version; the spider emblem on his back is painted in a darker red.

The figure's sculpt is a tad iffy. The figure's defined but not overbuilt except a little in the thighs. The head is a touch small but not as bad as Black Spidey above. The hands appear to be the exact same as Black Spidey's, so under-handed cupped left and long-finger web-shooting right. The lower torso unfortunately is a narrower piece than the upper chest, it steps in at the articulation, this detracts from the movie character and looks more like something out of the comics. The hips stick out from the waist a little mainly because the lower torso is overly narrow. The knee articulation looks a little odd but no issue until the upper joint bends, then the thigh becomes a sleeve for the knee which is too bad (especially since it works on Black Spidey).

Articulation is identical to Black Spidey above, though this Spidey's joints are a little less tight in some areas and feel a tiny bit frail. The articulation really is too limited to do all the great stuff the Toy Biz Spidey figures can do and it makes a big difference to me. Spidey's only accessory is a similar suction-cup-sporting web that he can grab, this one looks a little better to me as it's silvery translucent and has a 4 corner shape. The packaging calls out "super stretch web!" but it's not all that stretchy.

Overall, this one has a very "toy" look but also feels frail (not like it's going to break though). The look is pure Spidey, but not quite enough of the needed movie styling. The articulation limitations and missing articulation hamper the playability of this guy which sinks it. And again we're an overpriced figure with not enough accessories. It's the same grade as Black Spidey but for different reasons. Grade: C


Green Goblin (first movie) - I didn't really care for the costume on the first movie's Gobby, some have dubbed it the "power rangers' armor Goblin", I didn't even buy the movie figure back in the day, but when I saw this green sucka on the pegs, I dunno, it's not even totally accurate but this figure clicked with me. The figure's cast in shiny metallic green from the film, the only other paint details are a few gold elements on the legs, the yellow eyes, the black mouth and white teeth - visually though, the shiny green plastic works great with this sculpt. The sculpt has the details down pretty well, they're not as tightly sculpted as Toy Biz's - in fact it's darn plain from the back - but the sculpt overall conveys the look well even through its inaccuracies. I don't remember the helmet being that long.

Articulation is interesting in that it's pretty well integrated into the sculpt, minus the hips which are usually the weak spot for every Marvel figure with universal-jointed hips. There's the ball-jointed head; standard swivel waist; the arms have universal-jointed shoulders and shallow-angle diagonal swivel elbows (aka the "cut joint"); and the legs sport universal-jointed hips, double-jointed knees with the in-cup swivel at the top that this is common to this line, and universal-jointed ankles -- yes, the only figure in the line I've seen so far with this vital type of articulation and he's not even from this movie! Although the shoulder joints are a little limited and there's just that dopey cut joint in the elbows, the arms actually end up getting the job done for the basic menacing and flying poses. The helmet sculpt allows the ball joint to get used to its finest potential, it's got a decent range of motion and it's almost invisible to the look of the figure.

Gobby's got 3 accessories, 2 orange and green pumpkin bombs (which he can't actually hold) and his Goblin Glider. The glider lacks many of the movie details, is simple silver with lavender, and is probably 75% too big, but it sells the idea pretty well. Mine was assembled backwards at the middle piece, with the pointy bits pointing forwards (they're the jets at the back), but this is easily remedied since the wings are just pegged on. It's got articulation at the strut that connects it to the middle, but not where the strut meets the wing. Instead of the small missiles under the wing, it's got holes to accommodate the pumpkin bombs, the idea being you push them from the top and the drop, but it's too easy to drop them by accident to use this as storage, thus you end up with an oversized, inaccurate glider that's got a big hole in each wing. The one thing that disappoints me about the glider is that the pegs are in the middle of the footpads, but Gobby's pegholes are at the BACK of his feet - d'oh! Still, he interacts with the glider pretty well.

Overall, it's clear Hasbro's trying to cover the entire Spidey movie franchise with this line rather than covering just the newest movie, and as crass as that may be, it worked on me with this figure (and I'll admit I'm tempted to get Doc Ock too). While the glider is phoned in, the figure works surprisingly well in both deco and sculpt, and even has a vital type of articulation that none of the other main character figures in the line have. The pricepoint holds this one back a little though. Grade: B-

In my neck of the woods, Target put all spidey figures on sale for $5.99 with the deluxe figures for about $8.99. I went back to wal-mart and got a price adjustment, getting about $35 bucks back. Just a heads up! :thumbsup:

After reading JT's review, I think I'm going to pick up a Green Goblin. I might as well get a Doc Ock, too...for the sake of completion.

The rare figures in this line (around my area, at least) seem to be the New Goblin with removable mask (I only saw one, which I bought) and Kraven the Hunter (I only saw one at Toys R Us).

The rare figures in this line (around my area, at least) seem to be the New Goblin with removable mask (I only saw one, which I bought) and Kraven the Hunter (I only saw one at Toys R Us).Yeah, I only saw a couple removable-mask Rolling New Goblins at WM and none anywhere else. I saw a bunch of Kravens at WM and a couple at TRU I think, could have been Target though. Rhino was very rare at WM, I saw 2 or 3 there, but then I saw one at another store.



It's funny, with this line, Hasbro seems to be going right for the kid buck, but they're pricing it pretty high for that. The marvel (pun intended) of the Toy Biz movie lines was that they went for the kid buck pretty hard, but they also were very eager to get the collector dollars as well.

Oh, the CSM'S were giving me a tough time as well. Told me that since i bought the figures yesterday, I would have to bring them back and return them, and THEN GO BACK TO TOYS and find them all over again. I told them not a snowball chance in hell and talked to a manager, who said, "well, yeah, just take care of him." And this is considering I'm an employee with the Wal-mart corp when i'm not in school and it was still a hassle. Good luck with that! :thumbsup:

and I did pick up each one of the villians to display, but I just can't convince myself to open them. Sure, I had them all price matched at $5.99, but I already have them all MOC (and in larger scale for Gobby and Ock!) and that's like, 40 bucks that I could spending on something else. Plus, I already have a lots of figures on display and that'll only get worse. Probably take them back later in the week. The folks at the wal-mart service desk are going to be uber happy to see me........AGAIN. hehehe :crazed:

I just picked up the Green Goblin and Doc Ock at TRU. Ock's actually a lot better than I thought he'd be. The sculpt is okay, but a little more arm articulation wouldn't hurt. His lower tentacles bend, and the upper tentacles' claws snap shut when you squeeze his legs together. A bit lame, but believe it or not, the action feature actually works better than the first Toy Biz Spider-Man 2 Doc Ock figure. The only bad thing about the figure that comes to mind is the paint job. Not so much on his body, as the paint there is fairly accurate, but the tentacles look pretty bland. The claws could have used some paint touch-ups instead of just being a plain gray. Overall, a decent figure. It's not the worst in the line. Green Goblin, on the other hand, is right on the money. It's probably the best in the line, or one of the best.

BTW, the body on the New Goblin (with removable mask) is terrible. It has minimal articulation. When I saw the other version of the New Goblin (the disk launching one), I noticed that it was practically SA. I thought about buying that and swapping the heads so I could have a fully articulated Goblin with a removable mask.

I was more selective with both films, but SM2 has an awesome figure that has magnets in his hands and feet, and is articulated enough to use it nicely, I have it on my lamp now and it looks awesome.

HA! i've got that one, too. other than him, the doc ock with the poseable arms was the only other guy i have from the spider-man 2 line. i didn't get any from the first one.

he's in my cubicle at work right now, hanging upside-down.



First, let me say that the new scale is a disappointment, going from the awesome 6" line to a limiting 5" line while staying at the same pricepoint is a wasted effort.


the pricepoint would've gone up just the same as it did with the marvel legends.




The launch at Wal-mart had probably 3 waves of basic figures, every movie character had at least 2 figures including the villains which is a little crazy, many were gimmick figures,

it seems there was a straight-up articulated version and an action feature version for each character from the movie, save for sandman.


and they knew to include movie-1 Green Goblin, movie-2 Doc Ock, Kraven the Hunter, Scorpion, and Rhino

while the above are in similar packaging, they're not considered part of the "spider-man 3 series" but the "classic series" - on the new movie figures, across the bottom of the bubble it says "spider-man 3" whereas on the guys noted above, the "3" is replaced by the spider-symbol.


as well as just the bland "New Goblin" figures, Sandman figures, and (blue, why?) Venom figures

he seems more purple than blue to me, which is a combination of red and blue - not sure if that means anything, just something that got me thinking...

also, the "black" costume spidey is really gray in plastic form, so that one's not too accurate, either. in all the trailers, the spider-symbols are no different from the webbing, but on the figure they're lighter. i'm not bothered by it, as it looks cool, but it's not necessarily accurate.

anyway, i have a comparison review of the two spidey's on my site:

http://www.wallcrawlersweb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=535

at the end of the day, i ended up with both SA spidey's, "new" harrygoblin, venom, and the green goblin.

EDIT: forgot to mention that the walmart that i went to DIDN'T have the exclusive on saturday morning. i was ****ed.

I was just browsing at a Toys R Us and I noticed that all of the SA Black Costume Spider-Man figures were sold out. I then went to Wal Mart to look around (for a Saleucami battlepack, which I didn't find) and there were none to be found there, either. Is this a rare figure? It would figure that Hasbro would shortpack the most popular figure in the line.

Super Articulated.

And I've seen them in decent numbers around here (Toledo, OH). Then again, I haven't checked the SM3 areas as I know there aren't any new figures due out for a bit.

Still looking for the WM exclusive Venom to go with my WM exclusive Spidey. Some stores have him now, none around here though. I'll keep lookin'! :thumbsup:

EDIT: a little searching and i found this:

the venom exclusive was NOT part of the 3/24 release, and will be available in the "upcoming weeks".

I just picked up the Green Goblin and Doc Ock at TRU. Ock's actually a lot better than I thought he'd be. The sculpt is okay, but a little more arm articulation wouldn't hurt. His lower tentacles bend, and the upper tentacles' claws snap shut when you squeeze his legs together. A bit lame, but believe it or not, the action feature actually works better than the first Toy Biz Spider-Man 2 Doc Ock figure. The only bad thing about the figure that comes to mind is the paint job. Not so much on his body, as the paint there is fairly accurate, but the tentacles look pretty bland. The claws could have used some paint touch-ups instead of just being a plain gray. Overall, a decent figure. It's not the worst in the line. The tentacles looked very plain in paint and sculpt, and the arms did indeed look under-articulated but I'm glad to hear you dig this figure, next time I see him I'll pick him up.


Green Goblin, on the other hand, is right on the money. It's probably the best in the line, or one of the best.Yeah, I figured that was the case when I first saw him, he stood out fast, I raised my opinion from "B-" to "B".


BTW, the body on the New Goblin (with removable mask) is terrible. It has minimal articulation. When I saw the other version of the New Goblin (the disk launching one), I noticed that it was practically SA. I thought about buying that and swapping the heads so I could have a fully articulated Goblin with a removable mask.New Goblin v1 with the permanent mask is SA, as much as Toy Biz's first Spider-Man Classics figure was back when they started that whole new Marvel Legends trend.

I thought about doing that head swap and swapping the sky sticks too. The ball-jointed heads are very easy to remove, hopefully they fit each other but the Spidey red and Spidey black heads are slightly different joint sizes so they don't. But I couldn't justify buying a second Harry just for the exposed face.



HA! i've got that one, too. other than him, the doc ock with the poseable arms was the only other guy i have from the spider-man 2 line. i didn't get any from the first one.

he's in my cubicle at work right now, hanging upside-down.Right on! I think that Spidey may be the very epitome of Spidey.

I never got any of the SM or SM 2 line's villains, but I did consider getting Doc Ock both when I first saw him and a couple months ago when there was one they got in on clearance from Amazon.com's sell-out.


the pricepoint would've gone up just the same as it did with the marvel legends.Which I complained about there as well. Like I said about Hasbro's ML: two bucks forward and two steps back.


it seems there was a straight-up articulated version and an action feature version for each character from the movie, save for sandman.I think the Sandman with the big hand, the first version, is the one you could call the articulated one, the second version was more gimmicky and had an angrier face.



while the above are in similar packaging, they're not considered part of the "spider-man 3 series" but the "classic series" - on the new movie figures, across the bottom of the bubble it says "spider-man 3" whereas on the guys noted above, the "3" is replaced by the spider-symbol.Ah, I didn't notice that when I bought them, I see it now in the HasbroToyShop photos, they're not listed over there in the Spider-Man 3 section of the site either. Still, my point I think is valid.


he seems more purple than blue to me, which is a combination of red and blue - not sure if that means anythingSeems like a reach to me, plus the articulated version I paid the most attention to was more of a navy blue or slightly darker, not much red, but I didn't buy him and open the pack up either to examine.


also, the "black" costume spidey is really gray in plastic form, so that one's not too accurate, either. in all the trailers, the spider-symbols are no different from the webbing, but on the figure they're lighter. i'm not bothered by it, as it looks cool, but it's not necessarily accurate.The gray seems accurate to the trailers to me.


EDIT: forgot to mention that the walmart that i went to DIDN'T have the exclusive on saturday morning. i was ****ed.Exclusive??? I didn't know, just saw your link, I don't see a huge difference between that Spidey and the regular gray one, just darker and shinier.



I was just browsing at a Toys R Us and I noticed that all of the SA Black Costume Spider-Man figures were sold out. I then went to Wal Mart to look around (for a Saleucami battlepack, which I didn't find) and there were none to be found there, either. Is this a rare figure? It would figure that Hasbro would shortpack the most popular figure in the line.I think it's Darth Maul syndrome, even when Maul was overpacked in a case he sold out faster than any other figure. Anyway, the wave 1 case is even-packed: 1x each figure, 12 figures total (crazy!). http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HMV69100A


BTW, how dinky and sad are those 3" Titanium Series movie figures, the $5 ones? They look awful, I was expecting them to be twice as big and way better detailed.

Kind of surprised you liked the gray Spidey over the red Spidey of the 2 SA figs, Vyn.

yeah, it's definitely a reach, like i said - just something that was bubbling i my mind. mine is definitely purple, though. funny thing is, in artificial light at night, the purple all but vanishes, and he looks more black. weird.

I almost bought it too which would have given me a chance to see it out of package and determine, but I just couldn't pull the trigger on it, I don't really like Venom and I certainly won't bother with one that's the wrong color.


to each their own, i just thought that the gaps in the red-and-blue was a detriment. plus he's just a bit too thin...I agree with you on all that, but the gray one's head is SO small and the figure is out of scale with the rest of the line.


his web pattern also goes astray from the pattern on spidey, so i guess he puts his own spin on the motif.Yeah, I noticed that on the webs on the boots of the figure I had in my hand today, I guess Topher's Eddie Brock reboots the look of the character based on his own take on things.

Oh, and on this matter:

while the above are in similar packaging, they're not considered part of the "spider-man 3 series" but the "classic series" - on the new movie figures, across the bottom of the bubble it says "spider-man 3" whereas on the guys noted above, the "3" is replaced by the spider-symbol.There's also no 3 on the right side spine, but they say "more Spider-Man 3 figures" on the cardback about all these villains - my guess is that's the error. Also, I picked up Doc Ock today at Target, the movie figures are on sale for $5.99 but the non-movie figures are $7.19, so there's another difference right there. They have different assortment numbers since they're "collection 2" in Hasbro's assortment system.



Jedi it isn't the lighting, if you look carefully at the other LE Spidermans you can see the same purple tint, in some pictures it is very hard to see but you can see it.It was the first and only one I saw, so no way to compare it. My thinking was cameras sometimes have trouble picking up black correctly which is why sometimes in the movies they'll make something purple to look black in the camera lens, it could be that it's really black and the camera sees it wrong as purple. I doubt I'll see it in person to verify this though, so for now it looks like it's really purple.


So, as I mentioned, I picked up Doc Ock today. This figure is alright, and the gimmick is more fun than I expected. The claws all move, the lower ones have 2 sets of hinges per "finger", and the lower tentacles are poseable via a wire inside. The figure's got the basic look of the character down, and the shoulders are surprisingly universal-joints instead of just swivels which they look like they'd be - nice hiding job Hasbro! :thumbsup: He's also in scale with Spidey which is keen. There's plenty to complain about too, though: the head is ball-jointed but designed so it can only swivel, waist of a ball joint, and the ball jointing for the head makes the neck look wrong for the character to boot. The paint scheme is too simplistic and the sculpt is a tad simple and soft. The upper tentacles aren't poseable, they're rubbery so you can move them but they won't stay put. The wrists really need articulation, I can live without elbows here but he needed at least that left wrist goin'. The left hip is not articulated due to it activating the gimmick, this wouldn't be a big deal if the figure weren't so damn hard to stand upright (the trick is to lean him slightly forward). And more of a nit, but I would have liked to see him come with an accessory, perhaps a ball of precious tridium and a money bag. Oh, and the packaging bio claims his tentacles are adamantium, but the movie never said that (though Doc Ock in the comic did have an adamantium set at one time). Overall, this is a decent and fun figure that could be better and shouldn't be so expensive, a tiny bit more work and he'd be a significantly better figure. Grade: C+

Another nifty thing about the gimmick on Doc Ock, when activated it makes the tentacles move forward slightly - probably a side-effect more than an intended gimmick, but still keen.

The card back photo shows the tentacles looking pretty different, and they attribute the gimmick to the lower claws which is incorrect.

He is that purplish color in person, his web trim isn't silver either it's more of a faint pale sky blue. They had a couple of cardboard displays of him they weren't huge but they had maybe 7 or 8 more. If I feel the need I may get another or a couple more chances are these won't be super rare. I have the normal version on this figure which is gunmetal grey with silver trim. I like the figure but he is definitely not black. His web accessory is chocolate brown oddly enough.

which is actually a cool thing, as recently the venom symbiote has had two other hosts in the comics, and each time the costume has appeared a bit different, giving the impression that the host plays a part in the design of the costume.

"Spider-Man (Transforming)
Faced with a raging New Goblin and the nearly invulnerable Sandman, Spider-Man is more than happy for the extra power granted him by this new costume. He doesn't know where it came from, and he doesn't care, as long as it helps him win. Little does he know, however, that what he thinks of as some kind of enhanced costume is actually an alien that is slowly taking over his mind!
Articulated action figure changes from red to black. Just attach the snap-on symbiote attack pieces! There’s even symbiote fluid that “flows” across Spider-Man’s chest! Detailed and posable, this is one friendly neighborhood action figure to add to your collection!"

I was tempted to buy the LE Venom figure since I loved how they handled Venom so much...then I scanned it and it showed $9.99. What makes this so special aside from black paint?

Thats basically the only reason, it's metallic black/navy and it's Walmart only.

Ah darnit, that deco looks pretty good, darker than the current version of that SA mold. He should really have another accessory though, clip-on webs would be my choice.


Spider-man with retractable webline- http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS13460&mode=retail&picture=out

Looks like he fought in a tar pit, looks awful. I don't think this is the transforming one with the color change.

I have a question about the Burger King Spidey toys...

so they are in foil packaging which led me to believe that perhaps they're blind packaged. however, on both visits i made this week, i got the Fists of Fury Sandman. Either they're not blind packaged and there's only 1 or 2 different toys per week or else i defied the odds by getting the same one twice.

I have discovered it's two a week, 10 toys divided by 2 a week makes sense. 5 weeks 2 toys per week equals 10 toys.

Steve just posted pics of Black Cat and Shocker:
http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?categoryid=18&p2_articleid=1341

Shocker looks pretty good, no yellow on his pants and the yellow they used is really vibrant and he has no lenses in the cowl, but the sculpt looks nifty none the less. I'll likely get this.

Black Cat is a weird one, she has a tiny mask, creepy open eyes, her hair is in a bad-looking pony tail, she's kinda saggy for this character, and they messed up her outfit at the boots, collar, and gloves. Never the less, this is one of those characters you almost can't not like and the figure should fill out the Hasbro Spideyverse nicely, so I'll probably get her too.

darthvyn
05-22-2007, 06:38 PM
huh... interesting...

i have the shocker from the amazing spider-man line, (which despite the limited arm articulation is an AWESOME figure...) so i won't need this one, although it is a different scale, which must have been part of their reasoning.

black cat is dissapointing. she should be much hotter than that, but of course, we're talking about has"monkeyface leia"bro here. oh, well.

The info about the 6" Marvel Legends Spider-Man Series has finally been released. :)
No pictures yet, but I bet we'll be seeing them in the next couple days. :D

The 411: Marvel Legends Spider-Man Movie Figures
Posted by D_Martin on June 4, 2007 at 03:45 PM CST:
Back when we reported about this wave back in February, we had it a little tiny bit messed up. Back then we were under the impression that the build a figure was a mystery and the list of figures we had needed to be collected in order to build this mysterious rogue. Well, we were partially right anyhow. You do need to buy them all in order to build the figure, but it isn't such a mystery in the sense of who the character is. Turns out he was right there in front of our faces the entire time...

Sandman
Sandman looks fairly standard for the character. The likeness is close and passible, but is more Sandman than Thomas Hayden Church. THe figure features a ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, double pivot elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, double pivot knees, and ball jointed ankles. In the image we've seen, he has sand arms. The left hand is a big sandy fist and the right is a spiked mace.

Venom
Sorry kids, the Marvel Legends scaled Venom is purple. Beyond that, the figure does look better than the smaller version. The web deco is a bit more scattered like it was in the film, and the costume texture is much more subtle. Venom features a ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, double pivot elbows, ball jointed wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double pivot knees, ball jointed ankles, and a huge tongue.

New Goblin
While it is hard to tell, there is a good chance that this figure features a removable mask and removable arm blades. Harry comes with his hover board and a loose fit belt that displays nicely over the leg articulation. The New Goblin figure features ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, double pivot elbows, ball jointed wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double pivot knees, ball jointed ankles, and possibly a ball jointed head.

Mary Jane Watson
The MJ figure, like the Sandman figure, is easily passible as the character, but doesn't have a perfect Kirsten Dunst likeness (which isn't a bad thing). The figure comes on a small circular display base that is sculpted to look like a wooden floor with piles of sand on it. Also, she comes with a large plank of wood. The character is sculpted in a dark brown go-go boots and a light brown dress that falls about mid thigh, making it impossible to judge what sort of hip articulation it has. Of what articulation is visible, MJ features a ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, ball jointed elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed torso, double pivot knees, and ball jointed ankles. Like other figures in the line with long hair, chances are good the head articulation will be limited.

Spider-Man (symbiote)
This figure looks really cool. While not 100% film accurate, it does pull off the costume pretty well, and the body sculpt is very well done. Think Quicksilver's body type, but completely re-sculpted to match the Hasbro articulation. The black Spidey features a ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, ball jointed elbows, ball jointed wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double pivot knees, and ball jointed ankles.

Classic Spider-Man
This is where trouble comes into paradise. THis figure is a rehash of what was originally Toybiz's Super Articulated Spider-Man from their Spider-Man 2 line. This version of the figure is identical, save with black where the former was blue. All things considered, it is a great sculpt though, so it's ideal for anyone who missed out the first time.

Dr. Octopus and Green Goblin
Fear not true believers, this isn't a two pack. These will both come out single carded, but they are both rehashes based on the Toybiz sculpts that Hasbro used in the Spider-Man Origins two packs. Expect them to be repainted, but beyond that not all that exciting. The kids will love 'em though, and really that is who toys are made for...

BUILD A FIGURE Sandman
OK, now this is really cool. This is a figure of Sandman in action. THis thing could not fit into a blister-card. No way. This version of Sandman isn't quite humanoid, but close. It looks like the scene where he's putting himself back together. This figure even trumps The Blob when it coms to BAFs.

According to someone I know who works in the industry from another board, it's due to Marvel. They wanted to ensure kids can differentiate between Venom and Symbiote Spider-Man. So they insisted that all Venom merchandise has to be purple instead of black. Remember, cause kids are stupid. They can memorize a few hundred pokemon characters and their powers, but they somehow can't tell the difference between Venom and Black-Costume Spider-Man. Yeah, it's dumb. But what do you expect from the same company that won't allow Beast and Nightcrawler to be in the same movie because it would be confusing. :p

Some kids these days yes are very stupid but when I was a kid I knew which one was which. Venom was the muscular bulky Spider-Man like dude with the mouth and so on. Black suited Spidey wasn't so built. Venom also had a blue "shadow" on him all of the time. I still have my Toybiz 15" Venom and Hulk from the early 90's. I didn't get Spider-Man but later on found a Punisher mail away at a local comic store and still have it to this day.

What peeves me about this wave 4 nonsense is how they're not doing just a new batch of figures, they're repacking them with old ones. Here is the listing for wave 4 via BBTS and what I already have:

Super-Articulated Spider-Man *have*
Zip-Line Spider-Man *have*
Sandman *have*
Retractable Web-Line Spider-Man,
Sand-Hand Breakout Spider-Man,
Spider-Man with web line action
Venom with firing web launchers
Black Costume Spider-Man with suction web *have*
New Goblin with battle damage

and they're not offering BD Goblin solo? Yeah, i'll wait to find him at retail. The new ooze attack figures look decent, but i'm not sure about that Venom. I'll have to go through and change around my pre-orders to ensure I don't get extra figures. I would just wait to find them at retail, but I remember the later waves of SM and SM2 were hard to get at retail as by the time they got released, popularity had died down a bit and they were harder to find. Hm. :upset:

I bought the new 360 Unleashed Spidey. Nice figure fully articulated. I also read on the Marvel forum some people b-tching about these figures. Hasbro can't please some people no matter what apparently. Hey Hasbro read this and make an Unleashed 360 Red to Black color changing Spider-Man HAHAHA.

I plan on getting Venom and Black Spidey. They are even making Scorpion from the Spider-Man 3 game too. As well as an alien looking Mysterio. Vulture might be from Spider-Man 1 game. I hated that level.

I really liked the look of the Unleashed 360 at Comic-Con, didn't know they were out already. They seem to be based on the GI Joe Sigma 6 body, so that'd be around 8". New Goblin on his sky stick was totally sideways by Sunday at the show though, that stand is worthless just like all the other Unleashed stuff, but the footpegs also weren't big enough.

Picked up GITD Venom super-articulated at WM last week in San Diego, the glowing looks really good but the paint is sloppy. Still, glad to have a black-paint Venom instead of purple, and glowing rules. I spotted another Venom there who had been packed with his lower torso completely 180 so his butt was in the front like President Skroob in Spaceballs. :D

From the 5" line at SDCC, they had some new figs but not all, it's a good mix but the Venom with the lifty head looks so bad it's hard to believe it got approved.

What wave is it due in, 4? I would be a little surprised if it doesn't see production, the concept is aiming a little over the line's head but at this stage they have retailers who have prepurchased the product, they're pretty far along in the progress.

It's not listed in any of the lines at all. Hasbro may have realized that beauty is beyond their ability and scrapped it.

I called Hasbro customer service she girl said her computer shows it started shipping in april. I told her I have never seen it in stores or on ebay and that it isnt anywhere to be found and that she may want to inform the execs about it. She asked for my name and number and she'll call me when she finds out more, I'm also not the only one who has called about this figure. Toobad I wasn't the first one maybe they'd send me a few of them. I might have been the person who got the ball rolling though maybe.

so, I e-mailed hasbro this week asking about those two figures and I got the heave ho about how they don't know anything and they can't give out information on new figures. So, I e-mail them back, get snooty, inform them I know they CAN figure these issues out and blah blah blah blah. As i'm awaiting a reply, I check my e-mail and I see I have one from BBTS informing me that those two figures came in and have them. lol oops! :thumbsup:

No sightings of that BD Goblin though. BBTS has the whole set of figures that includes him, but I already have them, so il'l have to wait and find him single carded. :thumbsup:

One of the WMs I hit had a mountain of metalized Spidey, New Goblin, and a few Sandmans. Spidey looked good but it appears the paint comes off easy, the 3 I looked at in person all had issues. WM also had half of the 6" ML Spidey line, none of the good ones though. :p


At TRU and WM, I picked up the SM3 5" Black Cat, Shocker, and Acrobatics Spidey (web lines permanently inside his fists).

Black Cat is alright, but has a few issues - she's sculpted like she has scoliosis or is thrusting her chest WAY out, it works for action poses but sucks for standing poses.
Her eyes are painted WIDE open, it's creepy. They gave her universal-jointed shoulders and hips, and double-jointed knees, but no rotation joints in the arms or legs which is a bit of a drawback, and no waist articulation. Her cat is funny, as big as another figure, push down and his head raises slightly, let go and he springs forward a little.

Shocker is pretty good, well-articulated, and he can actually stand holding those giant clip-on blasters (with a little work).

Acrobatics Spidey, I've been waiting for this one. Basically, it's super-articulated Spidey except the arms are cut joints and out to the sides, no elbow articulation, and there's a string running through the hands into the torso - hold the string and he slides down to the other end. It's not the most exciting gimmick, and the ends of the string are oversized web plastic pieces with large suction cups, but it's kinda fun to swing him about back and forth. The string is about 3' long and they actually did it silvery gray like his webbing usually is instead of giving us black string like they usually do. I'm really glad Spidey's arms can rotate, and his forearms rotate too, it's not perfect but it is very Spidey. Leaving the rest of his body as the SA pieces was a smart call, the SA design for this line isn't as good as 6" but it's vital for a webswinging Spider-man.

Black Cat has big boobies too so she can thrust them out all she wants. HAAHAHAHAHAHA I did see some of the ML Spidey figs last week, they were nice but since spiderman stuff is on my ****-list at this moment I didn't bother considering the purchase.

Yeah, they really amped up Black Cat's chest, the prototype didn't look this ridiculous, and she's arching her back to make it even worse.


Well, I saw even more new figs in this line, Mysterio, Scorpion (v2), and dark Rhino. Rhino is shameful, literally just a darker version of the first pegwarming POS. Mysterio is disappointing, no gimmicks, just a split-up-the-sides robe (what is this, POTF2 circa 1997?) and a base, I passed. Scorpion is 100% different from the previous, which I've still never bought, but I bought this even though it looks more like a GI Joe reject (it makes him an interesting baddie for Spidey to beat up) - I should have saved my money, he's kinda lame.

I saw ML-scale regular Spidey, MAN did Hasbro screw up that figure! I have the original version Toy Biz released, it had a dark paint scheme and could have used more detailing, but it's light years ahead of Hasbro's deco which involves translucent plastics and little paint whatsoever. Bad man!

TRU has a buy.............2 get 1 free this week on those. Or is it buy 1, get 1 free.....I can't remember, it's one of those.

and I found the new random SPIDER-MAN line at a few stores this weekend. They appear to be in the ML size, 6'' and feature primarily repacks of older figures from spider-man 1-3. I also found a figure that was part black spidey and part regular, which i bought as I don't think we'd have that one before. The rest were decent figures, but I have all of those, so I passed. I did attach a pic of the figure I did buy. Sorry for the camera phone pic, but it's all I could do. :thumbsup:
