|Review by Stefan Blitz|
Face front, nostalgic friends of the fantastic Forces of Geek! It’s your ole pal, Smilin’ Stefan Blitz with a review of Diamond Select’s Retro Marvel Spider-Man Action Figure!
Here’s the pitch by our friends at Diamond!
The Marvel Cloth Retro line will capture the nostalgia of the
1970s and add a modern-day spin in a series of limited edition 8-inch
figures. The line kicks off with none other than the Amazing
Spider-Man! Spidey will feature a real cloth costume based on his
original 8″ release, as well as easily interchangeable additional heads,
hands, outfits and accessories to turn him into Daily Bugle
photographer, Peter Parker, or a more modern comic version of the
wall-crawler! The “throwback” outfit will come on a standard retro-style
body in a reproduction box based on the classic packaging. The
additional outfits and parts will come packaged on a display tray, along
with a miniature booklet outlining the history of the character.
Spider-man, and future releases in the line, will be limited to only
3,000 sets, so get on board now! Designed and sculpted by EMCE Toys!
