The Amazing Spider-Man: The Toys

USA Today has a preview up of the first figures from the Amazing Spider-Man (movie).  I guess it will be on display at SDCC, possibly at preview night tonight.

I hope we get some comic accurate villians in the line.

I still have yet to get a Marvel U Spiderman.  Looks like I might hold out for these - not too shabby.

From the looks of the Toy Fair pics, the movie line seems to be pretty similar to the current Spidey line (maybe it is replacing it, I don't know).  They seem to have both comic and movie figures, but overall it looked to be various versions of Spidey, and a couple Lizards.  I know I'm in for some figures, at least the best version of Spidey and the Lizard - and anyone else they might make (Gwen? Capt. Stacy?).

Spotted these at Target today for $9.99 a pop (explains the outrageous "clearance" prices we've been seeing at least). About the same as the Avengers figures, articulation wise, although on some figures they cheaped out and only gave them HINGED joints. Totally unacceptable in the year 2012, especially for that price. The best figures were the SA movie Spider-Man and the comic Green Goblin, both of which I almost picked up, but didn't due to the insane price. There's apparently a Doc Ock that looked cool, but they didn't have him in stock.

Wal-Marts in my area put these out about a week ago... they don't seem to be moving.  They are $7.47 there.

I've seen a little bit of this line so far.  It seems to be bumping the Avengers line a little bit further back in the toy aisle.  Which seems odd, since there's been such an immensely positive response to Avengers at the box office.

Finally saw the Lizard from this wave. Look like the aliens in V. No labcoat. Easy pass, though I may pick up an ultra poseable movie costume Spidey.

Went looking for the 6 inch Avengers and found these, picked up posable Spidey and the terrible T-crotch that is the Lizard.

I've seen probably over 100 of the new Spider Man figures this week... about a dozen combined of Green Goblin and Doc Octopus... none of that Lizard though.

I saw some of these for the first time today - Dayum! If you thought the Avengers' figs were bad, wait til you see these. Very disappointed.

I actually checked around for these in town today (and Joe stuff), but didn't see anything.  Our WM had some of the role play and pop up transformer type stuff, but not the regular figures.  I know this isn't necessarily a line people are super excited about, but I'm pretty psyched for the movie and would like to at least pick up the super poseable Spidey and hopefully a Lizard, if they are well done.  Of course, I saw pics over at MarvelousNews of some 6" figures (probably at WM), similar to the Avengers line, which look better too.

I passed on all of them.  They are bad, and $10 at Target and $11.50 at TRU to boot.

There's a couple I'd consider at $5 clearances like Goblin and Ock.

Saw them tonight at a Walmart that had just completed their reset...only $7.47 there. No Doc Ocks but I did see a lab coat-less and thus source-inaccurate Lizard which I have no interest in.
