I wanted to have my picture taken with Spider-Man! Darn it! I have one to match that I got taken with him when I was like 5 or 6 years old. I look different now. I could have posted nice comparison shots, too.
But Spider-Man wasn't actually there at my Wal-Mart. They were taking pictures of kids with a cardboard standee! How lame is that?
I'm sure the kids knew that this 2-dimensional Spidey was not the real superhero. Kids are smart that way.
But I drove to two other Wal-Marts and it was the same thing. No real Spider-Man! Dang it!
What a bummer that turned out to be.
Though I don't collect them, the toys looked really cool. I saw Spider-Man, two different versions of Sandman, the Green Goblin, (the back of the card shows a cool figure of Harry in the Goblin gear but I couldn't find it in the stores), and there was a black Spider-Man and a version of Peter ripping the symbiant off of him. The black Spider-Man is not the official Venom. He might be in the first assortment as well, but I didn't have time to look because I had to go to the other stores to see if Spider-Man would really be at any of them.
