Diamond Select Toys has been out of the Marvel statue game for a little while, but at one point they were steadily documenting every corner of the Marvel Universe, and one of the crown jewels in the line was their assortment of Spider-Man 3 busts and statues. Since they had so much fun working on the movie version of Ol' Web-Head last time, they decided to get back into the game for the new movie, The Amazing Spider-Man!
There are four busts and one mini-statue in the works, and they're all designed by Gentle Giant Studios, based on digital data from the movie. Designed to be displayed individually or as a group, all of the busts stand 9-10 inches tall (The Lizard is enormous) and feature character-specific patterning on their bases; the battle-damaged Spider-Man bust even comes with interchangeable masked and unmasked heads, as well as an interchangeable left hand! The statue is around 8 inches tall, and shows Spidey perched on the translucent wall of a New York City skyscraper. Pre-order yours today online or at your local comic shop, and look for them to arrive this June!
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.
