AFJ’S TOP 10 SPIDER-MAN MOVIE ACTION FIGURES W/ BONUS PICKS!

Junkies, when we lost our found Jarrett Kruse (Head Junkie in Charge) we lost a voice and a perspective on the toy industry that was completely unique. While going through the backend of the AFJ database, we happened to find several pieces that he started and never finished. The toy industry can turn really quick on what is a hot commodity and what is not. Thankfully, top 10s or list articles are always in vogue. With the dawn of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse right around the corner and multitude of characters set to appear, we are thrilled to unveil the Head Junkie in Charge's "TOP 10 SPIDER-MAN MOVIE ACTION FIGURES W/ BONUS PICKS!". The list is complete, visually, however, Jarrett never finished his copy as to why he picked these particular Spider-Men. Our Editorial Director, Robert Trate added some pertinent information.  #ALLFORJARRETT #AFJ4LIFE

10. TOY BIZ SPIDER-MAN (2002) J. JONAH JAMESON
TOY BIZ SPIDER-MAN (2002) J. JONAH JAMESON
Complete with "desk pounding action", this action figure likeness of J. K. Simmons capitalized on casting perfection. What better way to remember this performance by picking up Toy Biz's, now, classic figure.

9. TOY BIZ SPIDER-MAN 2 (2004) DOCTOR OCTOPUS

Alfred Molina, notorious for playing villains, brought to the Spider-Verse a sympathetic Otto Octavius. He might have been the baddy for the film, but he redeems himself at the end.

8. HASBRO MARVEL LEGENDS TECH-SUIT SPIDER-MAN
HASBRO MARVEL LEGENDS TECH-SUIT SPIDER-MAN
When Hasbro really gets it right, they get it right. No alternate maskless head, just hands, a head with eye squints, and all the articulation you will ever need. 

7. TOY BIZ SPIDER-MAN 2002 SUPER POSEABLE SPIDER-MAN
TOY BIZ SPIDER-MAN 2002 SUPER POSEABLE SPIDER-MAN
A fantastic figure that had more articulation than one would ever need. The gargoyle ledge was also a nice touch. A perch, if you will, and it even had a notch in the back so you could mount on the wall.

6. HASBRO MARVEL LEGENDS SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING VULTURE W/ BAF WINGS
The Vulture
An impressive figure with fantastic details and articulation. The downside, the helmet did not come off to reveal Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes. Still, the Build-A-Figure wings just added to the incentive of getting the whole line. 

5. HOT TOYS SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (HOMEMADE SUIT) 1/6 SCALE COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
HOT TOYS SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING HOMEMADE SUIT VERSION 1/6 SCALE COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
Hot Toys really is on another level for collectors. Sadly, that is a financial level as they always go for a high cost. With that being said, when you get it, you will know it was worth every penny. 

4. MARVEL SELECT SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING ACTION FIGURE

Marvel Select figures, by Diamond Select Toys, are usually more for the adult collector, than say a Marvel Legend. Why? The details and the articulation. The Homecoming Spider-Man is a perfect example of that. Wow.

3. NECA 1/4 SCALE SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

NECA's foray into the superhero genre, as it is for Marvel and DC Comics is on the 1/4 scale. We have no problem with this has NECA delivers exactly what we want, articulation, accessories, and plenty of fun.

2. HOT TOYS SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING 1/6 SCALE FIGURE
HOT TOYS SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (HOMEMADE SUIT) 1/6 SCALE COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
Again, Hot Toys... just look at the costume, it is as if there is actually a person moving under there. It looks alive, for Pete's sake!

1. MAFEX SPIDER-MAN (HOMECOMING Ver.)

MAFEX is for the serious collector. The price tag, for me, doesn't go hand in hand with the size. For Jarrett, he wouldn't shut up about each of MAFEX's releases. So his number 1 stands. 

***AFJ BONUS PICKS!!***

Jarrett loved bonus picks. For whatever reason, he could never just pick 10. The following stand as he laid them out.
