The Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie Statue

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-Crawler’s likeness from 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” with remarkable fidelity. Spidey’s surface has the textured appearance of fabric despite being fully resin cast and features the unique design details of that movie’s updated costume.

Although the Diamond Select Toys Amazing Spider-Man Movie Statue has no articulation, the illusory sense of action and depth that the figure’s 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 it’s 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, it’s another Marvel piece that will likely find its way into the webs of many collectors.
