Ive been debating buying one of these for a while now. The Hulk and Cap PFs were no brainers for me even though I paid double retail for both as these are incredible looking pieces.

As a huge Marvel fan I need a classic red and blue Spidey in my collection. But I dont know if I want to pay double retail. The pose is soso. Looks like they go anywhere from 450-600. I know the comiquette is coming out but not a huge fan of the Olivetti style.

I havent seen one of the PFs in person. Any honest opinions, recommendations, criticisms of the piece by those who own it would be greatly appreciated.

if you have the money,buy it...looks great imo...the exlusive with the classoc spidey is wonderful but it costs too much...

to be honest, I would prefer to buy the BiB or IronSpidey com than the PF.

As with all PF's I think that if you're a real fan of the character you should buy it. I mean, I would really love to have the Hulk PF, because it looks so great, but actually I'm not willing to pay so much money for it, because the Hulk comics aren't my thing. (I do love the Planet Hulk comics so if SS makes a Green Scar I'd buy it.)
I own the Spidey PF and I love mine!

Why buying the PF when a comiquette is about to be released??? I'd wait even if you're not an Olivetii fan

Just wait for the Comiquette to come out. If you dont like it, then get the PF.

I wanted this PF for a while, but the spandex was not for me, so now I'm having something done until they release the final comiquette of the trilogy.

Spidey is a favorite character of mine---but honestly, while I like the pf, it's not as nice as the Wonder Woman museum statue that DC did. Use that as a quality meter. It looks good, and fits in with the others---but it could have been sooooo much better.

Wait for the comiquette because when it comes out and you dont like it, others will probably be selling their PF's. So the price on the PFs should come down a little since there's more supply....

I love it. Even though alot of people don't like the blue fabric with the sculpted red I think it looks just fine. Personally I would wait to see the comiquette and if you dislike it go for the PF.

Thanks guys. I guess I will wait a little while longer til the comiquette comes out.

Jstep makes a really good point here, IMO. I for one really like the PF, despite what a lot of people say. I think you're best bet might be to take Jstep's advice. Wait it out for a little while longer. People might try to dump their PFs on Ebay, once they get wind that a comiquette is coming.

^^ Yep, I would wait for the eventual dumping of the Spidey PF's. You'll probably score one cheap.

Despite what everone says, it is a great piece. Like a lot of this stuff, it has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. This is pretty much the only pic I have of mine, you also need to see some side views to really get an idea of how dynamic the pose is:

Wait for the comiquette to at least be revealed. Price will dip once the comiquette is released.

If not, I say get the Back in Black.

I love this piece and have always wanted one. I won't pay 2X retail though. When is the comiquette suppose to debut? Have there been any teaser pics?

Sorry i'm a total newb when it comes to Sideshow Marvel. :o

No teasers on an actual sculpt, but there is an "unofficial" sketch floating around (I think it's earlier in this thread)

I have the Exclusive version of it.

The pose is dynamic, it really looks like it is going to shoot a web out at you. And it goes fantastic with the Green Goblin PF and the Attakus Green Goblin 1/4 scale.

My knock on it is the symbol on the back could have been done a bit better.

As for the "shine" some refer to of the spandex, IMO, it suits the piece perfectly well.

Some also have said it is in a "poop" pose. I could not disagree more. IMO, the dynamic web shooting pose calls for the piece to be crouched low. IMO, it is nowhere even near what some others have described.

Perhaps the lines on the spidey could have been painted a bit closer also.

I am not sure whether or not there will be more for sale after the commiquette or less. I can only tell you that I will be keeping mine, and buying the commiquette. I also went to the expense of having Stan Lee sign mine, with a pic, this is how much I like it.

If you are a Spidey fan, get it. If you can, get the exclusive, or get the regular and buy a camera toy of that size to poze with it. The camera hanging over the pillar really adds a subtle, yet very noticeable cool touch.

Good luck, let us know what you decide.

I've always liked this piece and at one point had all 4 on display in my case. The 'retro' version was always my favorite, but IMO would have looked much better as a comiquette... the fabric looked a bit off to me. Not bad, just off.

Look for a custom 'retro' version of this in comiquette form in the future :D

I will say that this was my first Marvel piece, and I've ALWAYS loved it...... The pose is pretty accurate depiction of the iconic Marvel character, and my favorite part of this piece is THE BASE! You don't see too many bases now that incorporate many elements like this one :cool:

My 2c

While I'm more a LOTR collector then anything else, I was always a Spidey fan as a kid, be it the cartoon series or the original movies.

Since I started collecting high-end statues rather late, the PF was already long sold out and it just cost too much from oversea's. Then one day, the Reg showed up on local ebay at a price I couldn't believe. As such I jumped on it and am so glad I did.

I know he tends to get mostly opposite opinions from ppl, but for me I think he's great. The mixed media works well, the base is perfect and the pose just screams classic Spidey abut to shoot out a web and leap into action across the cityscape.

I never liked the pictures for this statue and never ordered it, but picked up a reg version for $170 I think not long after it came out. I have a rule that most statues do not look nearly as good in photo form as they do in person and this statue is definitely one of the prime examples.
I have to say I like the statue but it is not worth what they are going for now...
The main problem I have is that it's base - which looks great - is far too low especially for a crouched and already small character. Sideshow really do need to bring some intelligence and consistency to their base heights...Spidey's left leg should have been at least half an inch higher on a taller base.
The fabric/polystone combo is pretty good, but comes up a bit short when you get right up close and examine it. For normal viewing it is pretty neat. The spider on his back is junk.
I took a couple of snaps for you with the other 2 PF's you have already so you can know what it will look like if you decide to get one.
It's a tough choice, you could be waiting for over a year for a comiquette version to be released. If you must have one try for a regular since they are cheaper and the camera isn't the best EX ever.

Thanks I appreciate the great pics.

I think I definitely want to pick one up but one of my concerns is although its technically 1/4 scale, it definitely looks smaller when compared to the other 1/4 pieces. I assume thats mostly due to the fact that Spidey is a little scrawnier than the other characters and the compact pose this piece is in. I still want to see this in person.

Just need to find one for a price I can live with. I just cant justify paying more than $350 for a regular and more than $400 for an ex at this time.

I have him next to the first Iron Man comiquette and they look great together. He is also next to Darth Maul and looks the irght size compared to him too. I think its just that some of the other supers are very large (Cap is massive!) so he looks tiny.
