Spider-Man. Spider-Man. He has the oddest costume variation of any mutated human. Can he look like cringe from 1990? Yes, he can … by crickey? Does that work as a rhyme?
Spider-Man is no stranger to weird costumes. Of course, we’re not talking strictly about Peter Parker’s alter-ego. His clone had a strange costume when he was introduced, too. All red with a blue sleeveless hoodie and ankle pouches? Really?
Today we’re looking at a new Toy Fair exclusive. Hot Toys is going to be giving us a real obscure Spidey suit that had a short run in 1990 and then went more or less forgotten until it popped up in a recent video game.
Over at Figures.com, we got all the details about the Cyber Spider-Man costume. It’s quite retro if you remember the cybernetics obsession in comics during the ’90s.
Cyber Spidey will come with the following features and accessories:
- Newly developed masked head sculpt with LED light up left eye (green light, battery operated)
- (3) interchangeable right eye pieces that can create different combinations of Spider-Man’s expressions
- (10) pieces of interchangeable hands including:
- (1) pair of fists
- (1) pair of opened hands
- (1) pair of web shooting hands
- (1) pair of cobweb swinging hands
- (1) pair of gesture hands
The cyber suit is a callback to Spider-Man issue 21 from 1990. An injured Spidey is “repaired” and fitted with a cybernetic arm and a load of those pouches. Pouches and metal arms were huge in the early ’90s comic books. Artist Erik Larsen could draw some amazing-looking metallic appendages during his time at MARVEL Comics.
The suit showed up as part of a DLC pack for Sony’s exclusive Spider-Man game. This version of Spidey would also show up randomly in various cartoons and toylines. Check out the video below to see the suit in action in the game.
What should other outfits from Spider-Man’s history get their own Hot Toys figure? Multi-arm Spidey? Fisherman Spidey? Yes, it exists. Let us know in the comments.
