A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s Marvel Comics ARTFX+ Statues have brought you Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Avengers as well as the heroic mutants of the X-Men. Now we’re kicking off an all-new series of high quality 1/10th scale ARTFX+ figures based on characters in the world of everyone’s favorite web-slinger, so of course we’re starting with THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN himself! In 1962 Stan Lee created the character of Spider-Man, the teen-aged Peter Parker granted extraordinary powers by the bite of a radioactive spider. With great power comes great responsibility, and Spider-Man would use that power to save lives and protect the innocent. The innovative superhero has gone on to become one of the most popular and famous characters of all time, appearing in hundreds of comic books, television shows, and a huge comic book blockbuster film franchise.

The Amazing Spider-Man is always in the middle of the action, and this fantastic ARTFX+ presentation captures him in one of his most iconic poses. The heroic Peter Parker crouches low to the ground, ready to spring up at a moment’s notice. His left hand is stretched behind him for balance while his right hand is thrust forward in the classic web-shooting pose. Spider-Man wears his traditional red and blue costume, recreated here with painstaking sculpted detail in the fabric’s texture, black webbing design, spider emblem on his chest, and the superhero’s lean muscled physique. Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers and X-Men series, Junnosuke Abe, the Amazing Spider-Man is just under 3 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) while crouched, and he too has magnets in his feet to provide perfect stability on his included display base. Catch Spider-Man before he swings away, and watch out for more Spidey-related ARTFX+ Statues coming from Kotobukiya soon!

Available November 2016.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
