DST’s Retro Spider-Man Web-Swings Out of the Past

Retro-Spider-Man1Diamond Select Toys (DST) will release a line of gift sets inspired by Marvel Comics‘ The Amazing Spider-Man’s earliest appearances, including his original “circle suit” costume that dates back to 1973. Crafted by EMCE Toys, this retro Spider-Man will have removable head and costume, allowing additional heads, hands, outfits, and accessories in the set to turn him into Daily Bugle photographer Peter Parker, or a more comical version of the super-hero.

The 1970s-style Spider-Man figure will come packaged in a reproduction window box inside a larger collector case. Additional outfits and parts will come packaged on an adjacent display tray. The case will also contain a miniature booklet outlining the history of the character.

Future DST figures will include Captain America, Iron Man, and Wolverine, each with alternate outfits and parts. Aimed at the collector’s market, each set is limited to 3,000 pieces. Spider-Man will be on store shelves during the latter part of the year, although pre-orders are currently being taken.
