Up Close with Sideshow’s Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format FigureApril 3, 2016
For fans of Marvel’s iconic wall-crawling crime-fighter, the Sideshow Collectibles Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format Figure makes for an utterly jaw-dropping superhero showpiece. It joins an equally craveable line-up of prior releases inspired by characters from the Marvel Comics universe, which includes , and , as well as and comiquettes based on J. Scott Campbell’s vision of the web slinger among others. Sideshow’s Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format Figure bolsters the admittedly noncontroversial claim that when it comes to wildly authentic superhero collectibles there’s never too many.
Once it’s out of the box and assembled, the sheer scale of Sideshow’s Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format Figure makes it a truly imposing collectible centerpiece. The nearly 25-inch tall statue dynamically captures the famously nimble webbed wonder as he evades the Green Goblin’s explosive pumpkins and prepares to flings himself from a collapsing metal beam. The weighty polystone statue combines boldly sculpted contours and a comic book faithful painted finish to yield a piece that’s apt to appeal to even the most discerning Spider-Man aficionados. While there’s no articulation (unsurprisingly), the “Sideshow Exclusive” version does include a pair of interchangeable heads (one standard, and one with a winking left eye) and left forearms so that collectors can display Spidey with a web line emerging from his web-shooter or without.
Sideshow’s Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format Figure began shipping to the doorsteps of collectors in March of this year carrying with it a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $469.99 USD.
