When it comes to Marvel Legends, Spider-Man is about as bankable a hero you can find. As the centerpiece for numerous lines in a given year, Spider-Man's action figure waves have been among the most diverse and impressive in Hasbro's Marvel Legends catalog. The latest Spider-Man series, which features the Sandman as a build-a-figure, is a prime example of everything Hasbro has gotten right with Legends, even if it also includes a few figures that fail to impress.

Superhero Color Theory, Part II: Secondary Characters

week-2

Last time in Superhero Color Theory we explained why our main heroes look the way they do. Now it's time to look at the secondary colors and how they often, but not always, signal the presence of a bad guy.

Spider-Man's deadliest foe will finally join him in the ranks of Sideshow Collectibles' Premium Format Figures. The Green Goblin has been a thorn in Peter Parker's side for decades. Though he's gone through more than a few alterations over the years, none have come quite as close to the menacing majesty of the original purple suit.
