SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Toys Offer Better Looks at the Villains

Jul 14 2018 -- 3:00 PM

Marvel Studios' good working relationship with Sony provides more than just movie continuity--it also means Hasbro gets better access to early movie looks in order to bring out the best movie toys. And while recent trailer releases for the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse have focused on the web-head heroes, the upcoming toy line revealed today gives us a significantly better look at the villains, including a massively mutated Green Goblin and an amusingly pin-headed Kingpin (Liev Schreiber), who show up in the $39.99 "Super Collider" playset. Speaking of which, how great would it be if Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin could ever show up in a Tom Holland Spidey movie?

We also have a pretty comics-accurate version of Prowler (Mahershala Ali), who looks to have rocket shoes, though those may be a toy-only gimmick.

The 6-inch figure line also includes Miles Morales, Peter Parker, and Spider-Gwen (with more characters possibly TBA). Each figure includes 7 points of articulation and retails for a suggested $9.99.

In order to help fans count down to the release date of December 14th, there will also be a Spidey-themed Advent calendar-ish "Countdown Collection" containing 14 mini-figures, four stickers, and two cardboard builds.

Or you can go bigger with a much larger "Shock Strike" Miles Morales figure controlled by a wrist-gauntlet that makes him move, talk, or shoot web missiles. He'll run you $59.99.

Morales will also be joining Marvel's Titan Hero line-up, which features affordable versions of all the company's heroes in a 12-inch scale. Like the 6-inchers, he will also be $9.99.
