Hey enforcer, I just had a really cool idea for your website since I'm somewhat inspired with all this toy talk. Why dont you dedicate a section on the ben reilly tribute to fan collections? That way people can share photos of what peices they own and maybe write a little essay about the items they treasure the most.

Sure! Sorry, my boss took the work camera on vacation, when he comes back I'll photograph the figure. I think thats a cool idea about the collections.

I've also proposed a cool contest idea to the good people at Spidey-Dude. If something comes of it you all will be the first to know

yeah thats a nice looking figure. probably the nicest manufactured ben reilly figure ever made. too bad none of the 5 inch figures look that good. hell its too bad that even the 5" superposeable figure isnt just a scaled down copy of this figure. The spider symbol on the 5" figure is horrendous looking and it doesnt even come with any web shooters.

Found a pic of the figure I was talking about.

I just stumbled across something very interesting while I was re-reading Andrew Goletz's "Life of Reilly" 35 part saga. The following entry comes from part 26 of the original article:

[ GLENN'S COMMENTS : The Godzilla-like monster also appeared on the cover of the issue, and apparently it looked TOO MUCH like Godzilla, because Marvel was very nearly sued by Toho, the Japanese film company that makes all the Godzilla movies and owns all the rights to the character. They are very protective of the character, and they go after anyone they feel has exploited the property without their permission. That's very understandable and any other character-driven company, including Marvel, would and should do the same exact thing. As I recall, Toho sent a "cease and desist" order to Marvel, and although the issue was already in print and could not be recalled, we had to go back and change the artwork so that if the story was ever reprinted, the monster would look nothing like Godzilla. ]


I thought that this just might be a little relevent with the impending release of the rest of the clone saga TPBS set to be released within the comig year. So when that issue is finally reprinted, looks like spidey wont be facing off against godzilla the second time around.

I think they already have an alternate cover where it has been changed to look less like Godzilla. I hope it won't be all blacked out, but it's only one page of a trade so... I can live with it.

Huh, you know... I have that issue but I don't think I've ever taken it out of the bag to notice it was a special cover...

Yeah that is a really shoddy figure. The 10 inch one was much better done, especially the spider and the eyes... they even painted on the Web shooters. I'll get pics, I promise.

Ah, the ol' lenticular covers. Those offered some creative possibilities beyond the standard variants. Wizard made some nice uses of them on their special reprints.

I actually got the Sensational card without the comic from Marvel back in 1999 when I was part of a group to help redesign their website.

No tis not this is a the prototype for a new scarlet spider figure for the 3 3/4" Marvel Universe line. And this looks like a legitimate scarlet spider figure this time. its not just ben reilly's spider-man costume.

you are definitely thinking of a different figure. You're thinking of the figure that was from the 6" spider-man classics line way back in 2001 which was produced by Toy Biz . It was originally supposed to be a part of series 2 but was scrapped and replaced by daredevil, and was then eventually released as a kb exclusive. this new figure was just debuted this weekend during toy fair 2011 and is for the 3 3/4" Marvel Universe line that Hasbro is producing.

Here are some pics to compare.
