Samurai Spider-Man From Bandai and Tamashii Nations

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.

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!!

Iron Man Goes Nendoroid

We witnessed earlier this year how everyone’s favourite web slinger, Spider-Man, received his very own Nendoroid model. Now it’s the turn of another Marvel stalwart to join the rans of being immortalised by Nendoroid maker, Good Smile Company.

Iron Man will be getting an Iron Man Mark 7: Heroes Edition model later this year which is completely posable and will be similar to the Iron Man seen in Hollywood hit, The Avengers. There’s some pics just below if you want to see just how cute he’s going to be.

The video tends to load an ad before playing the trailer and for some reason the ad tends to not load, if this happens just reload the page and the trailer should load.

I don’t normally blog about Western things but I’m a huge Spider-Man fan as I could relate to the Peter Parker character when I was a young teenager. Skinny, unpopular, invisible and getting picked on. Yeah, I know…cue the violins 🙂 But it’s all good now though, competely different person!
