Hot Toys' sculpting technology make their figure heads so
incredibly life-like making it difficult to tell in some cases if you're looking
at a photo of the actor or the figure. The James Franco figure
for example is very lifelike for the New Goblin figure while
the black costumed Spider-Man figure from Spider-Man 3
is the only Hot Toys' rendition of Tobey Maguire
with its shading so reminiscent of when Peter Parker started to go
down to the dark path with the alien symbiote having
temporarily consumed him.
The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew
Garfield taking over the role of the web-slinger continues
to maintain Hot Toys' highest standards of realism with its
additional Peter Parker head of Garfield. His
thin body frame will allow collectors the ability to pose
the figure in some incredibly crazy positions.
Spider-Man related figures come with a wide variety of accessories such as removable
heads, multiple hands, webbing & web slingers, Goblin glider, roof-top building
section display and Sandman caricature display.

costumes are cloth like with the New Goblin having a
synthetic leather apparel for his jacket. They come in very nice packaging that
are a collectible in itself with great-looking photos and graphics.
