Amazon Exclusive Spider-Man 5-Pack Brings Eccentric Spidey Villains to Figure Form
Many fans know of Spidey villains Green Goblin, Venom, and Carnage, but Spider-Man has a deep gallery of rogues! Marvel is now collaborating with Amazon to bring some of Spidey’s most unique villains to figure form with the Amazon Exclusive Spider-Man 5-pack!
The Spider-Man villains chosen for this exclusive Amazon pack are some of Spider-man’s most unique, not often chosen for figures. In fact, three of the five figures in this pack have never had figures made at all. The characters in this pack include Silvermane, Molten Man, Human Fly, Razorback, and Symbiote Spider-Man!
The first figure we are taking a look at has never been done as a figure, the cyborg Silvio Manfredi also known as ‘Silvermane’! First appearing in Amazing Spider-Man #73 (1969), Silvermane would start out as a Maggia crime boss, it wouldn’t be until years later that he would transfer his vital organs to a cybernetic body!
True to the comics the figure is all cyborg, done in metallic silver the only human part of Silvermane remaining is his head. Intricate details in the body spur the illusion of an almost Ultron-Esque physique. Silvermane is also equipped with two firearms that fit into each of his hands.
The Human Fly is another character who is getting a debut figure after never having a figure before. The nefarious Richard Deacon known as ‘The Human Fly’ first appeared in Spider-Man Annual #10 (1976). Deacon became the Human Fly after forcing scientist Dr. Stillwell to experiment on him.
The colors and costumes chosen for the figure match the design of his debut in Spider-Man Annual #10. While Deacon’s design over the years has transformed into a much more grotesque mixture of man and fly, this early design left largely human elements outside of Deacon’s fly wings and compound eyes.
The last figure to get his first rendition in figure form is Razorback! Perhaps the most eccentric of the Spidey villains in the set, Bruford Hollis or ‘Razorback’ first appeared in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #12 (1977).
Razorback was initially not a villain but a small-time hero of his native Arkansas, inspired by the reports of heroes, Bruford Hollis became the Razorback wearing one on his helmet. The figure is replicated straight from the comics, with the massive hog helmet done perfectly down to the texturing of the hair!
The next character to receive a figure in this 5-pack is The Molten Man. This isn’t Molten Man’s first foray into a figure as he also received a figure for his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, as Molten Man was one of Mysterio’s monstrous illusions!
The Molten Man first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #28 (1965), Mark Raxton was a scientist who specialized in chemical compounds. Raxton created a liquid alloy from a radioactive meteor, spilling the alloy on himself and becoming the Molten Man.
The figure is done in a unique golden yellow plastic similar to his original comic origin. Small flames on his ankles, shoulders, and wrists are scattered around his body, adding to the look of intense heat that The Molten Man gives off!
The set’s final figure is a familiar version of Spidey, Symbiote Suit Spider-Man. The symbiote suit first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #252 (1984). The suit was originally an idea of Marvel fan Randy Schueller who entered a contest held by Marvel, after winning his idea was bought for $220.
The Symbiote Spidey suit was originally a living breathing organism that Peter Parker used in place of his regular spidey suit. The symbiote cared deeply for Spider-Man and granted him enhanced physical abilities. However, the power corrupted Peter who ended up finding out its weakness and separating from it.
While all of the figures in the set are done in the 6-inch scale, this symbiote Spider-Man is smaller than the other figures in the pack, standing at around 4-inches. This makes the villains appear much larger in size and was most likely done considering Peter’s age at the time he fought them.
The figure is done in an interesting style of black that almost looks as though it was mixed with blue or purple.
As mentioned prior, all 5 figures are done on the 6-inch scale. The figures are also tremendously poseable featuring tons of points of articulation allowing the buyer to pose them in whatever way they wish!
