It seems like retro-style 8" figures have become all the rage lately, but one license has been noticeably absent: the Marvel Comics characters from Mego's World's Greatest Super-Heroes line.These classic 8-inch, cloth-costume action figures were very popular back in the 1970s, and are as beloved today as they are hard to find mint-in-box. Luckily, Diamond Select Toys has announced a line of deluxe Marvel Retro 8" figures that will reproduce (and add to) those classic figures, starting with the Amazing Spider-Man!

Diamond Select Retro Spider-Man Figures

Only available as part of as special collector set, the Amazing Spider-Man will come as he first appeared in 1973, in his original "circle suit" costume and inside a reproduction window box. Additionally, the set contains all-new interchangeable heads, hands, outfits and accessories so that you can swap out parts on the classic figure to turn him into his alter ego: Daily Bugle photographer Peter Parker, or even a modern comic version of the wall-crawler!

Designed and sculpted for DST by the retro-toy craftsmen at EMCE Toys, the set will also contain a miniature booklet outlining the history of Spider-Man. Future sets in the line will turn the spotlight on Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine, who was never included in the original 1970's line. Each set will be limited to just 3,000 pieces, and retail for approximately $80.

Pre-orders will open for Spider-Man shortly, and he will be on store shelves (although probably not for long) in late 2014! And for more from Diamond Select, visit their website.
