A Look Back at the Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie StatueApril 29, 2014
As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters, we take a look back at one of the collectibles inspired by the first film in the rebooted Marvel series.
Designed and sculpted by the talented creative team at Gentle Giant Limited, the Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie Statue captures the Wall-Crawlers likeness from 2012s The Amazing Spider-Man with remarkable fidelity. Spideys surface has the textured appearance of fabric despite being fully resin cast and features the unique design details of that movies updated costume.
Although the Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie Statue has no articulation, the illusory sense of action and depth that the figures dynamic pose yields is surprisingly captivating. The two-piece sculpture stands just over 7 tall with the crouched Spider-Man figure attached (via foot pegs) to a base that’s sculpted in the form of a skyscraper. The translucent imitation glass of the building segment is nicely done and the foundation’s relatively heavy weight (over 2 lbs) makes the entire statue seem more substantial than its dimensions would suggest.
The Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie Statue is almost certain to appeal to fans of the 2012 film, though its likely to woo the broader swath of Spidey fans as well. With its artful depiction of the beloved wall-crawling superhero and a retail price of roughly $100 USD, its another Marvel piece that will likely find its way into the webs of many collectors.
