It’s over, I’m dead. I want this so bad and I haven’t even seen the price yet. Bandai and Tamashii Nation have a hugely popular line of figures depicting pop culture characters as samurai. And the latest addition to their growing range is the webhead himself, Spider-Man. Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a HUGE Spidey fan so this immediately caught my eye!
The team did an outstanding task last year of converting Star Wars characters to samurai so you should check those out too. This new Samurai Spider-Man is part of their new Manga Realisation line with modeller, Takayuki Takeya from Bandai, performing duties on the Star Wars figures as well. The figure has multiple accessories and body parts resulting is some pretty cool poses for photo opportunities and displaying purposes.
The figure has a beautiful web design culminating in the Spider logo across the breastplate as well as the inclusion of “spider silk.”
He’s a decent size too standing at 18cm or 7″ and comes bundled with the tantō short-blade in front and the long-bladed katana which rests behind him.
On top of all that badassery he comes with, the makers have also thrown in a grappling hook and chain for the full ninja treatment.
Thrown in three interchangeable hands for various web shooting poses and you’ve got one quality figure!
And now the best part, available to buy from today, this gorgeous figure will set you back ¥9,504 or around $US87.50…yep, I’ll be looking into this one for sure!!
