The poster, by Rafael Albuquerque, features Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen going up against two of the biggest Spider-foes, Venom and Carnage, on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Sideshow Collectibles Captures The Biggest Characters in Its Biggest Format [NYCC 2016]

Sideshow Collectibles Sixth-scale Daredevil Figure

Sideshow Collectibles doesn't often venture to New York Comic Con, but when it does, the company manages to roll out more than enough surprises for fans. While the booth at NYCC was decidedly smaller than that at San Diego Comic-Con --- which was a bit of a relief, to be honest --- that doesn't mean there weren't some great new statues and figures on display.

Marvel Legends Opens a Hole to the Spider-Verse [Review]

Hasbro Marvel Legends Spider-Man - Space Venom Build-a-Figure Series

Coupled with those three, we also get our first Silk, a fantastic Electro and a delightfully creepy Hobgoblin. In a year when we were fast approaching Spider-saturation, Hasbro found a way to keep things fresh.
