Toy Biz Spiderman Guides and Reviews

Toy Biz produced and manufactured Spiderman Action figures between 1994 and 2007. During this period they released more than 20 lines of Spiderman figures with literally hundreds of variations.

Most of these figures were generally massively overproduced with poor sculpting and paintwork and as a result, remain fairly easy to get hold of even 30+ years later. Also, nearly every series, except a couple, had two or three different Spider-man figures, which were essentially the same. The only difference between them was generally the included accessories, the paintwork, or the action feature. Some had a different hand different hands, but on the whole, the bodies and head-sculpts remained the same. The only plus side was that they were great fun to play with and were immensely popular with kids. Each of the figures in series 1-7 of the line also had a Bonus Collectors Pin.

The backing cards were fairly generic also to keep down costs, with a cartoon style Spider-man logo (see above) at the top. Below this the left hand side of the card featured a cartoon style drawing of the figure on the card, and on the right hand side was the bubble containing the figure, which took up approx two thirds of the card.

The top half of the back of the card featured the Spider-man logo at the top and the same image as on the front with a short bio of the character. The top left hand side shows a diagram of the figures ‘action’ feature.

The bottom half of the consisted of photos of each of the characters in the current series and the previous series, e.g. series 4 had photos of series 3 and 4 characters on the back.
