Each week we get our hands on some of the coolest collectibles and action figures we can find. This week we're taking a look at the recently released Green Goblin from Marvel Select.
Green Goblin is Spider-Man's most formidable villain. Unfortunately he's changed over the years. His death was pretty epic and when he came back years later, there was still some potential. As Green Goblin or Norman Osborn, Spider-Man never knew what to expect. Since he's pretty much given up his Green Goblin persona and has been a villain as plain old Norman Osborn, some of his evil charm has gone away. When Diamond Select/Marvel Select announced this new Green Goblin figure, I knew I had to get my hands on him.
As with all their figures, they somehow manage to cram in so much into the packaging. There's a good amount of detail and you get a little brief bit of history if you need to brush up your Green Goblin history.
The figure has a lot of articulation. The glider has a lot of detail and the figure looks great on display. He also comes with an extra right hand. You have your choice of a menacing fist or a second hand holding a pumpkin bomb. And of course he has his man-purse that would carry his other goblin gadgets.
This isn't the first time Marvel Select released a Green Goblin action figure. The previous version was released in 2003 and inspired from the cover to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #39. It came with the glider, a tied up Peter Parker, the satchel and a removable pumpkin bomb.
That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed these selections. Be sure to look for our next installment.
