Diamond Select Toys (DST) today announced it will be launching a new line of limited edition Marvel figure collector sets based on Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line. The new line launches with the Amazing Spider-Man (now available for pre-orders with a ship time of late 2014) and will also include Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine. Each collectible set — limited to a production run of 3,000 pieces — will retail for $80 and come complete with alternate hands and parts.
Painstakingly designed by the craftsmen at EMCE Toys, the Amazing Spider-Man will come as he first appeared in 1973, in his original ‘circle suit’ costume. This time around, however, his head and costume will be removable, allowing you to use the additional heads, hands, outfits and accessories included with the set to turn him into Daily Bugle photographer Peter Parker, or even a more modern comic version of the wall-crawler.
The 1970s-style Spider-Man figure will come packaged in a reproduction window box inside a larger collector case, and the additional outfits and parts will come packaged on an adjacent display tray. The case will also contain a miniature booklet outlining the history of the character.
