Get ready webslingers! Once again there will be a Spider-man costume available for 2011′s version of Captain Action. This one will be alot more affordable, as you would not want to pay out $13,000.00 for a 1967 Ideal Toys version. Check it out below:
Feeling stressed? Go ahead and give this Classic Marvel Toy a squeeze. I don’t believe this was released in the U.S.. I guess the company didn’t think that Americans might be a bit stressed too.
I am a sucker for the recent retro looking packaging of some companies such as Pyramid. These pins looked as if they jumped right off the shelf from the sixties, and or seventies. Classic Marvel at it’s best!
There was never much merchandising done for the 1967 Spider-man cartoon, but there are a few rarities that can be found. Here are 3 story books based on the sixties animated series. More on the subject of sixties Spider-man will follow on this blog in the future.
Here is the partner figure to the Doc Ock figure I posted on May 11th. Another great toy from Italy. Mama Mia!
Often there will be a foreign toy that never sees these shores. Such is the case with this Doc Ock figure from Italy. The mechanical claws on the ends of his arms actually spin. Nice design.
It shoots web missiles, and is a cool Italian Spider-Man toy vehicle. It’s about as big as 4 Hotwheels put together, and comes in pieces that snap together. Definately stands out as being one of the best Spider-Man toy cars of 2010. Marvel at this!
Coming soon from Hasbro! Although I am a bit perplexed by the dog “Miss Lyon” from the 80′s cartoon being with MJ, as the dog was associated with Firestar in the cartoon “Spider-man and His Amazing Friends”. Still cool though!
OK, I’ll say it,…they just didn’t make these kind of things when I was little. Of course Marvel was in it’s infancy when I was 3 years old, and Marvel cartoons did not appear on T.V. until I was about 5. This offering from Hasbro is a 3-D pop up playset that folds out, and […]
Spider-man, Iron Man, and the Transformers. Highly unusual to find a toy item that is based on 3 different movies. A nice set produced by Hasbro in 2009.
This Italian “Spider-man and Friends” game looks a bit like the American “Hungry Hippos” game I have seen kids play. I find it odd that the treehouse, or clubhouse has english signs, and yet the game box is in Italian. Also the choice of Storm as the fourth character instead of a more popular one […]
OK, so it’s a good thing these aren’t “radioactive”, but still are headphones with the Spider-man motif. Check em’ out!
Self contained little vending capsule that you can build into a figure. These are at a local vending machine near you now. Spider-man, Hulk, Ironman, Captain America, Thor, and Wolverine funky doo-dads. Collect all 6!
Tech4kids makes a missile launcher based on the latest animated Spider-man series. According to the box there are 2 character rockets, and the other happens to be Venom. No fuel, no batteries, no fuss, no muss, … but you must jump on the base really hard to create the pump of air to launch it. […]
I personally grew up in the 1960s when the first action figures made by Hasbro were of the 12 inch class. Then came the Mego in the 70s, and they were downsized to 8 inches. Following that in the later 70s with the popularity of Star Wars, the toy manufacturer Kenner released the 3.75 inch […]
So now that Disney owns Marvel, and is behind the steering wheel, what will happen to Universal Studios theme park souvenirs? Will Universal still be able to run the 3-D Spider-man ride, and sell Spidey collectibles, or for that matter any Marvel items? This may make the Spider-man Universal knick knacks more desirable to collectors, […]
If you’re ancient like I am, you probably remember a toy from the sixties called the “Kenner Give-a-Show Projector”. Back in the day they were very popular, and it’s not surprising that something similar is still made today. Dynatech makes a toy called “Movie Motion” which looks to be the same thing, but with a […]
The idea of Spider eggs is a little disturbing, but if it’s brightly colored with a pic of your favorite superhero on it,… then it might be a bit more acceptable. Spider-man and Easter go together sort of like mustard on your ice cream, but it happens nonetheless. There are plenty of different Easter eggs, […]
It’s an interactive 3 level Spider-man Hamster House. I’m not kidding. They actually made this, and yes, I know it’s April Fool’s day. This is no joke! I’m serious! Now I have seen everything.
Here comes Peter Parker’s tale, climbin’ down the Spider-Blog! Swingin’ he thwips a Happy Easter web! Enjoy your Easter break, and remember the real reason we celebrate Easter this weekend.
