MEGO Spider-Man Is Reborn In Diamond Select Toys’ Limited Edition Collector’s Set

Diamond Select Retro Spider-Man Collectors Set
Marvel/Diamond Select Toys

Whether a person is old enough to be nostalgic for it from the '70s or simply fell in love with it in the pages of Twisted ToyFare Theatre, for a lot of toy fans the 8" tall MEGO Spider-Man is more or less a must-have. Until now obtaining one has meant shelling out for pricey vintage toys of varying states of disrepair (mine, for example, has half its bare foot sticking out of its jumpsuit), but by the end of 2014 collectors will be able to score a versatile reissue as part of a three-in-one Limited Edition Collector's set from Diamond Select Toys and EMCE Toys.

Sexism Sense Tingling: Emma Stone Challenges Andrew Garfield For Dumb Remark At Spidey Press Conference [Video]

Sometimes good people say dumb things, and in those times it falls to other good people to call them out. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actors Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield seem like good people and a sweet couple -- they've been dating since 2011 -- but in a recent kids' Q&A to promote their upcoming movie, Garfield said a dumb, sexist thing. And co-star Stone coolly challenged him for it. You can watch the video right here.

German Man’s Real Life Spider-Man Web-Shooter Is A Wrist-Mounted Laser-Guided Harpoon Gun

Real-life webshooter made by Patrick Priebe

One of the coolest things about Spider-Man is unquestionably his web-shooters, the devices that allow him to swing around the city to fight crime without having to worry about all the questionable anatomy that would be brought up if he produced webs the same way as actual spiders. They're one of his trademarks, to the point where the new The Amazing Spider-Man series of films has reverted back to the idea of mechanical ones, replacing the previous movies' "organic" web-shooters, and they're the kind of thing that it would be really cool to own in real life.

And if you happen to be Patrick Priebe, you actually do. In honor of the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Priebe has constructed a homemade version of Spidey's webshooter that can launch fishing line out of a wrist-mounted coil and retract it, triggered by the same motion that Spidey uses in the comics. Also, there is a brass-tipped harpoon pointed directly at his palm that is launched out with a surprising amount of force. That seems like a good idea, right?

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Trailer Gets Homemade Movies Makeover [Video]

Homemade Movies Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer

So you remember Be Kind Rewind, where Jack Black and Mos Def made homemade versions of popular movies like RoboCop, a sentence that sounds like the rantings of a madman until you remember that it's an actual movie? Well, it seems that the fine folks over at CineFix's Homemade Movies have taken a page out of that book, only they're doing it one better.

Using costumes, action figures and a whole lot of cardboard, Homemade Movies has done a pretty incredible shot-for-shot recreation of the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

‘Indian Spider-Man’ Political Candidate Climbs A Building For Votes, ‘Daily Bugle’ Declares Him Threat And Menace

Gaurav Sharma, The 'Indian Spider-Man'

 

Like many Americans, I often find myself frustrated with our political system. For me, though, it's not really the two-party structure or campaign finance reform, it's that none of our major candidates ever dress up like Spider-Man and climb up buildings to ask for votes directly through a third-floor window. It is, I will admit, a pretty specific problem, but really, aren't all political beliefs?

What's interesting is that this is not a problem at all in India, as evidenced by Gaurav Sharma, an independent candidate running for the South Mumbai Constituency, who did exactly that, scaling a local apartment building in a bid to get voters on his side.

Movie Spider-Man Has A Dance-Off With Strange Baby Spider-Man In An Ad For Water [Video]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Evian ad screenshot

We've known for a while that the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was going to feature Electro, the Rhino and the Green Goblin, but I think I speak for all true fans of the web-slinger when I say that we've been waiting for months for the answer to a far more important question. Sure, Spidey's going to fight super-villains, but will he also be confronted with a horrifyingly misshapen baby version of himself that he will inexplicably battle via dance-off?

Well, now we know: Yes. Yes he does. I mean, it might not happen in the movie, but it's definitely what happens in an ad for Evian bottled water, which is somehow even stranger. Watch and be mystified below.

Medicom Reveals Its ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Deluxe Edition MAFEX Action Figure

When Medicom opened up preorders for its The Amazing Spider-Man 2 MAFEX action figure earlier this year, a teaser image depicted a pretty straightforward addition to the 6.3" tall toy line. Sure, it was cool to see a new take on the film's updated Spidey suit, but otherwise it was pretty similar to the first ASM figure, right? Well, not completely. While the basic figure is similar in some regards, there's going to be a deluxe edition of the Spider-Man figure that has accessories enow to make it look like he may or may not enjoy seductive convos on his smartphone. Oh, and a friggin' skateboard!
