Hey Plastic Addicts!! Over on my friend’s, Jimi Brook’s, site he gave a list of various Spider-men costumes that he would like to see be made into a Marvel Legend. You can check his version here – Suits I’d love to see come to life!
So he asked me what my wishlist for Spider-man was, so I thought I answer his call and I start the first ever Spider-month by making my very first Top 10, with a list of 10 Spider-men costumes and Alternate version I want to see get made. Now some people may be thinking, “Oh. Not another Spider-men” but let face it. Spider-man sells. They will keep making him whether you like it or not and I for one am glad.
Just a few things before we get started:
- This is my list
- This is open to costumes that Peter, Ben and Kaine have worn over the years as well as Alternate universe version like Mile Morales and Spider-UK.
- This will only be doing the Spider-men. The Spider-women deserve their own list, which I have already planned out.
- This is my list. Not Yours.
- Remakes will be included in this list as they have had some crappy figures.
- I will be given body types I would like to see the figure be on.
- THIS IS MY FECKING LIST. GET IT? GOT IT? GOOD. 😀
Let begin with number 10
10. Spider Armour MK I
We begin with a suit that a lot of fans have been wanting to have as a Legend for years. The Spider Armour. The ironically one issue suit has been a fan favourite ever since it first appear. It began to have a bigger fan base ever since it was seen in the 90’s cartoon. It has had a figure before in the TB Spider-man Classic but that was shit. Limited Articulation and a stupid web shooter toy feature. Since this is Peter Parker, he should be on a heavily re-sculpted Pizza Spidey.
9. House of M Spider-man
Taking the 9th spot is the House of M Spider-man. In the event of the same name, Peter Parker had all his wishes realised. All the people who were dead in the main universe were alive in this universe. He was married to Gwen Stacy and had a son. Just one problem. He was pretending to be a mutant in a mutant dominated world. This version had a version in the TB Spider-man Classics line but just like the one above, he had the same problem. There is a rumour he is the Spider-man of the wave after the Lizard one but until then, he should be a straight repaint of the Pizza Spidey.
8. Iron Spider
Next is the Iron Spider. Most people know the story behind this. During the Civil War, Iron Man became close to Spidey and gave him this suit. While it cause a bit of a controversy, it proved really popular among fans. It had a figure made during the Dark Day of Hasbro and like I said before the figure is not a bad figure by any means but a really skinny figure compare to the newer figures. I would love to see this one the Pizza Spidey Body.
7. Six Armed Spidey
We get onto something new now with the Six Armed Spider-man. When Peter wanted to rid himself of his power he created a serum to get rid of his power. However the serum instead made him grow 4 extra arms. Good thing too as he needed them to fight Morbius for the first time. This has been a long requested version of Spider-man for a long while and is a shame we haven’t gotten it over the years. He might need a new torso, but I think the Spider-UK body would work for this. I also think he should come with another set of clothed arms in order for us to have the version seen in the Spider-verse.
6. Insomniac Spider-man
Okay yeah. So the game hasn’t been released yet so we don’t have a clue of whether it is good or not. But you cannot deny that this suit looks awesome. I would love for Hasbro to release him as part of a deal for the release. I think it might need mostly a unique sculpt.
Those who have been visiting this site since it started know that my number 1 most wanted BAF for a Spider-man wave is of course Man-Spider. While it may have been invited for the 90’s cartoon, it has still made it’s way into the comics. Being a much larger figure he needs to be a BAF with a unique sculpt.
4. Assassin Spider-man
Ever wanted to know what Spider-man would be like if he killed villains. Well here he is. After the Death of Gwen Stacy, Peter began training under Wolverine and became an assassin. It should be noted that this design is based on the original Alex Ross design he had for the first Sam Raimi Spider-man. This should be done on the Spider UK build and come with pistols.
3. Mangaverse Spider-man
We enter Top 3 with Marvel’s attempt of making Manga for the Amercian market (and not the Japanese versions) with Mangaverse Spider-man. It could just be my love for Anime but in this universe, Spider-man is the latest in a long line of Spider-ninjas. He has all of 616 power, plus organic webbing, and the skills of a ninja. This also got a “figure” during the Classic line but that was shit. He should use the Teenage mold with New lower arms, backpack, Spider-punk’s shoes and as new grappling webs. I would also like to see Mangaverse Mary Jane, that universes Spider-girl, but that a lit for another day.
2. Spider-man India
The runner up of this list is a Spider-man from India called……………………..Spider-man India. Hmm. Anyhow, this basically a retelling of Spider-man that would bring in alot of India’s myths and cultures. He would prove very popular among fans that he was included in the Web Warriors. He should use the Pizza Spidey mold with new legs, Adam Warlock’s lioncloth and new feet.
Well. we have finally gotten to the number one spot. What could possibly gotten passed all of these guy? Who is so cool I would bypass so many other version? Who could………………… *Sigh* It’s the pig isn’t it?
Okay. Okay. I know what some of you will say. It’s a cartoon pig in a Spider-man costume. That is just crazy. But you know something, that is what makes me want it so much. It’s so crazy and off the walls that I want him for my collection. Hell I takes all the Cartoon verse version of the heroes we all know and love. And it’s just fun. If you can’t have fun, then you’re in the wrong hobby.
Before we finish up, an honourable mention.
Toei’s Spider-man and Leopardon
Long before they created the Super Sentai program (that’s what Power Rangers are based on kiddies), Japan’s Toei tried their hands at creating a live action Spider-man. And boy did they change alot. He was from Japan, fought weekly monster and had a giant frigging robot. I really want to see that Giant robot as a figure at some point, with the Spider-man being with him. However, as for why he is a honourable mention, the rights to the character are shared between Marvel and Toei so the likelihood of use getting it is slim at best.
Well that is my Top 10 Spider-men I want made. What yours? let me know in the comments below. Also I recommend checking out Poundz978 video where you can see all the customs he created over the years, including many (if not all) from this list. Particularly check out this playlist –Spiderman Customs! Might give you an idea for your top 10 list. Will you take the challenge?
