Ever since Hasbro decided to revitalize the 6” Marvel Legends series, longtime collectors have been celebrating the extra attention that the revolutionary toyline from the now-defunct ToyBiz has been getting. New sculpts, better paint apps, a wider selection of characters from the comic books and films, more accessories, and highly anticipated Build-A-Figure offerings have all brought the 6” Marvel Legends line (now known as the Marvel Legends Infinite Series) back into the spotlight.
Unfortunately, for fans of the 3.75” Marvel Legends line – formerly known as Marvel Universe and initially intended to phase out the 6” line when it debuted in 2009 – the 6” line seems to have overshadowed the smaller toyline, with a noticeable decline in overall quality and quantity of figure assortments in recent years.
Thankfully, Hasbro has decided to throw its small-scale fans a bone – and what a bone it is.
Check out the official press photos of the upcoming 3.75″ Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man and Vulture figures, who were revealed alongside two-packs for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the same scale. These new figures are set to hit shelves come Spring 2017.
Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man
This figure is reminiscent of the 3.75″ Spider-Man figure we got for 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man, except with an infinitely better costume this time around. Based on the picture, this figure of Tom Holland’s take on Spidey moves at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, torso, hips, knees, and feet.
Spider-Man: Homecoming Vulture
Regardless of how you feel about the Vulture in the comics, you have to admit that the MCU’s take on our friendly neighborhood arachnid hero’s feathery foe, who will be brought to life by Michael Keaton. It looks like Vulture will have the same general articulation scheme, though there’s a good chance that his wings will be poseable, too.
