same here. SS seems to enjoy creating the same characters over and over again. may be it is because they do not have the licence for other characters. regardless, I will buy this diaroma as well. because I am still angry to myself for cancelling Sentinel exclusive in March

That Silver Surfer piece from Sideshow is looking to be out veeeeery soon I think.

Needless to say, I am all over this one. I am glad I don't collect any other Marvel line. These dioramas are the best and they are coming out at a faster pace.

I'm no expert--was there a time when Symbiote Spidey fought Venom? I thought that the symbiote stuff left Spider-Man and attached itself to Venom instead. Were they ever both hosting the symbiote at the same time?

TheObsoleteMan
08-31-2006, 09:36 PM
I'm pretty sure Spidey wore a non-alien version of his black suit after he lost the symbiote, but I don't know that he ever fought Venom while wearing it. It's been an age since I've read any comics though so I could just be talking out of my backside.

SolidLiquidFox
08-31-2006, 09:44 PM
he did wear an non-alien version of the suit.

the other memorable battle when he wore this suit is during the whole Kraven the Hunter saga.

When Spidey realized that the alien symbiote was trying to permanently attach itself to him, he seeked the help of Mr. Fantastic. They figured out that very loud noise had the only affect on the symbiote. Spidey went to a church tower and with the ringing of the church bell was able to free himself from the alien. Spidey didn't know that Eddie Brock was in the church and the alien found a new host in a weak minded Eddie that was about to do himself in.

GSRJedi
08-31-2006, 10:42 PM
Can't Peter's new suit transform itself into any of his old costumes? Then he could be wearing a version of the black costume and fight Venom. But haven't we had enough black on black violence?

This Spidey Vs Venom is a movie related release as is most Sideshow product from Marvel. They may be comics versions of characters but there is an obvious movie corelation on 90% of the stuff on the Sideshow Marvel catalog. That said, we got a Fantastic 4 released already, a Doom PF so a Silver Surfer comiquette or any other kind of Surfer product is highly possible. I am sure you know the title of the next F4 movie...

Gore Group has been money on all these dioramas. I can't see Sideshow changing their winning formula on this high profile piece so get your wallets out right now.

Venom is not going to be as large as Hulk. He is usually shown as a large guy of may be Thor-like proportion but he is no Hulk.

Regarding what artist this will be based on, if it's Spidey in his black suit then I agree it should be Todd McFarlane based. If it's Spidey in his regular red/blue costume then I hope is Erik Larsen based. He is the one that gave Venom his popular look with the tongue and his Spidey is one of the most underrated out there.

This auction has some pics of interior Larsen art:

Personally, I'd like to see the McFarlane style Venom, but I'm 99.9% sure it'll be the huge jaws, long slobbery tongue one. Either way, I'm expecting a very energetic and dynamic scene with these two characters.

SolidLiquidFox

Spidey Vs Carnage means Mark Bagley based for sure. I don't mind it for Carnage but I do for Spidey.

Unlikely most people I like Carnage alright but I'm not crazy about the character. On the other hand, I love Venom as a bad guy (not the lame "Lethal Protector").

TOE
09-01-2006, 05:09 PM
if Carnage will be part of the fight, might as well make it a trio fight. Spidey, Carnage, vs. Venom.

...or Carnage vs. Venom since they really don't like each other as oppose to Spidey vs. Venom, or, Spidey vs. Carnage. Just my thought. :monkey3

I like that Spidey has grabbed his tongue. Makes him look less passive or trapped. But for those of you wanting to see the rest, I just don't see how much more there can be to the thing. It's clear that venom is busting through the floor, so we won't be seeing his legs. I think that we are pretty much seeing all there is to see, unless they have intentionally Photoshopped out the larger base for purposes of suspense. I just doubt that there is any more to see of the characters other than what is there in the preview. In general, I was thinking that the Fantastic Four "bustorama" might not fit in with the rest of the VS. line and it seems that this one is a nice piece that bridges the gap between the two, as you have conflict (VS. line) but no legs (bustorama).

I wonder what the exclusive is going to be?

I was a BIG fan of the McFarlane Spider-Man era (my early teen years). Unfortunately, I don't see anything in this piece at all that says "McFarlane Spidey and Venom". Erik Larsen, maybe. But, Todd McFarlane? Nope.

All I can pitch in with at this time is that this piece comes from Martin Canale and the Gore Group. If you have some questions, you can pose them by submitting to our Ask Sideshow form, and we *may* be able to get them answered by Martin and post them as part of a Q&A in the production blog (depending on what the questions are of course LOL)... see this thread for more info:

http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12061

As for my personal preference regarding this piece, I must admit that I'm not a huge comic/statue fan to begin with (I prefer the Premium Formats), but I really like that Spidey's grabbing Venom's tongue :lol And Venom's claw hands are cool!

Same here.

But imo there are enough nice Marvel Char. which i would like to have in my house than 10² Spideys.

Finally a Vs. I don't have to get! Unless of course it's awesome looking...

com'on SSC, make it look terrible!

Looks like you got your wish Dave. :(

I really wanted to LOVE this diorama, but Venom's pose, and lack of legs
totally ruins it for me. I'll reserve final judgement until I see the full diorama,
but so far, it is a pass for me on this one unfortunately. :(

I like SpiderMan, but the Venom is questionable.

Im hoping that when the entire piece is revealed there will be much more to it. Im also hoping that with different views it will become obvious that Spidey has a hold of Venom's hand bending his arm backwards like that.

.. like most, Im still on the fence though :monkey1

Fully expecting this to go up for order tonight. I really hope it sucks becuase if it doesn't, I'm going to have to get it.


I won't say that is sucks, gotta wait to see the full piece. But I don't know how this can hold a candle next to the Hulk vs Spiderman dio. It doesn't appear to even be in the same class.

I hope the photoshop is misleading us to believe it looks a certain way but it's in fact a bigger sculpt.

Unless Venom has legs, the base is very detailed/elaborate and we see some symbiote action underneath (to give Venom a fighting chance...as it is he's getting it handed to him) this sculpt may look better as a Bust Diorama.

What can I say...I was reading the latest issue of Flash: The Fastest Man Alive last night and I was feeling in a "flashy" mood today. :D

For those closet Flash fans out there that have been away for a while, Bart Allen is now the Flash. He's the grandson of the most famous and recognizable Flash that most of us grew up with (Barry Allen).

At this point, a change-o-head for Spidey seems like the most likely exclusive.

Or a black costume Spidey.

From CKinSD on Statue Forum:

"dudes I'm gogin to try to get permission to post the pre-paint sculpt pics or get Martin to. This is a diorama bust, like the FF piece. it is a new line for Sideshow.

the sculpt on this is fantastic. the details are just superb. this is a must get for me for sure. you really need to see the unpainted pics. I've already sent out emails to see if we can show those to you here."

Sounds like Venom is legless.

it would be very cool, but I dont think we'll ever see that as an exlusive. The web lines are always sculpted into each spidey piece to give the painters something to follow. A symbiote costume would have to be a completely different sculpt.
now if there was a $100 increase for the exclusive it may cover the cost of casting a differnt spidey.

.. all that said, i do think that would be one of the best exclusives offeredby SS to date

Sounds like exactly what we are seeing in the preview picture. I'm still not sure why some are expecting more of Venom than what we see in the pic. His legs are clearly not going to be there. I also doubt that there is much more to the base--I think it is made to look like Venom is busting out of whatever surface you set it on. After the amazingly detailed bases of the previous VS. dioramas, I am more bummed about not getting a cool base than about not getting legs on Venom. So I am holding out hope that the base will be more complex than what we see, but not that we might somehow get legs on Venom.

And if every VS. piece was as large as Hulk VS. Spidey, I would run out of room really fast...

Toms right, it's a bust. Actually looks like Spidey has Venom stuck in a hole and is taking advantage of him. I wonder just how small this will be? I am gonna pass, this does nothing for me. I just don't like busts as dioramas. I bet the Ex will be Spidey in GRAY armor.

I must just the ranks of those underwhelmed by this piece. Of course I said the same thing about the FF bustette?? until I saw the exclusive, which I liked much better.

Also can this be the last Spidey piece for a while. 2 VS and a PF are enough. Marvel has thousands of characters some of which are even popular(Speedball) with the masses, lets see some of them.

Wait I didnt mean Speedball, No really I didnt.

That's a great little piece, looks as if it was a sideshow piece. I think Venom's size is fine, he's not massively big. Great pose as well.
