I don't collect figures myself, so I don't tend to post any figurine news on the site. However, Mike Fichera is a keen figure creator/collector, who also happens to be the Spider-Man specialist over at Raving Toy Maniac. He saw these new figures being released, and just had to share the news.
Diamond Previews Exclusive Spider-Man Action Figure 2-Pack.
The October 2000 Diamond Previews catalog will offer an excellent addition for Spider-Man action figure collectors. Though ToyBiz's 5- inch Spider-Man action figure line has all but disappeared from the toy shelves lately, Diamond has stepped up to offer a set of 2 exclusive action figures sold directly to comic shops. As part of the "Marvel's Greatest Moments" line of figures (which included last years Cyclops / Dark Phoenix and Bullseye / Elektra 2-packs), this latest set will include Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. Spider- Man appears with his mask torn off revealing the face of Peter Parker to his arch nemesis. Both sport brand new head sculpts in a classic John Romita Sr. style.
Thanks to the Raving Toy Maniac for the close-up images!
