Memes are their own form of internet wildlife. Some have short life spans, like fruit flys. But others age just like tortoises. They just seem to live forever practically. Such is the case with the “ Spider-Man pointing” meme. Originally born from the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon series, it has since taken on new meaning in the social media age. And now, it’s become a collectible 1:10 scale sculpture from the folks at Iron Studios.
You can see product photos in our gallery below. And you read the official description for this unique Spidey collectible right here:
Raising his right arm, the friendly neighborhood arachnid superhero points to an identical figure, that repeats the same gesture, in a fun and confusing scene from his first animated series, that became one of the most popular memes on the internet. Inspired by this iconic meme, derivative from the episode “Double Identity”, the 19th episode of the hero’s classic animation from the ‘60s where a villain tries to impersonate the hero, Iron Studios present the statue “Spider-Man ‘60s Animated Series – Spider-Man – Art Scale 1/10”, faithful down to the smallest details, even in the absence of some, to the visual of the beloved wall climber’s original cartoon, with the hero over a pedestal next to a wooden crate, referring to the background scenery of this unusual moment in the animation.
The polystone statue is in 1:10 scale, which means that it stands eight inches tall. They sculpted it to look just like the Spidey of the original animated series. That means the costume has less webbing on the torso, a specific trait of ’60s Saturday morning cartoon Spider-Man. Of course, for the full effect of recreating this meme, you’ll need to buy two identical pointing Spider-Mans. Each of these statues comes priced at $162, so to fully recreate the now-iconic moment will cost a pretty penny. You can pre-order this statue now, but don’t expect it to ship until August 2023.
