If you’ve not seen Spider-Man: No Way Home, I won’t spoil the purpose of the black and gold suit. I will, however, let you know that the Diamond Marvel Select 7″ tall figure is available right now exclusively from ShopDisney. Peter Parker’s heroic alter ego is priced at $29.99, and these are limited to two-per-customer.
Being a collector myself, I always like to see if “exclusive” figures are genuinely unique or recolors of existing molds. So I checked this Spidey against a few others from the Marvel Select line, and it looks entirely new.
As Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters, the answer to dozens of questions will be revealed. One of the biggest questions is ”What’s up with the new suit?” This sleek, stylish black-and-gold costume is one of the highlights of the new film.
The Diamond Select figures, while sporting 16 points of articulation, aren’t quite as poseable as the Marvel Legends counterparts. This is a little weird considering the black suit version of Spidey is part of the Legends line already with better articulation and a lower price point. Select figures are more for displaying in the box, I guess. So, if that’s your thing, ShopDisney will be your only way to get ahold of this Spider-Man right now.
If you decide to crack open the box, here’s what you’ll be getting:
- Special Collector’s Edition Action Figure
- Detailed paint and sculpting
- Features 16 points of articulation
- Includes eight interchangeable hands and two weblines
- Display-ready Select action figure packaging, with side-panel artwork
- Inspired by Marvel Studios Spider-Man: No Way Hom
Now, what kind of licensing arrangement has to be made so we can get a triple pack of existing live-action Spider-Men? Maybe when the next Spider-Verse film hits, we’ll see this, but I’m not a patient man. I need it now.
