The original Toy Biz versions of Doc Ock and Green Goblin were some of my favorite action figures as a teen collector. They felt like they were close to be as detailed as McFarlane Toys figures, but they also had significantly greater articulation for posing. These both come pretty close to being as great, but of course, they have the aesthetic changes that their characters have in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
Though it’s ever really explained why Doc Ock’s wardrobe is changed ever so slightly into a look we never saw in “Spider-Man 2,” we get that version of the villain here. However, one of the great improvements over the original figure is having the extremely flexible arms on his back for maximum display options. Plus, it’s a pretty good likeness of Alfred Molina, complete with his little sunglasses
As for Green Goblin, he has a bit more of a dramatic change, with some purple elements and tattered textiles adding a little more comic book influence into the green suit’s design. Plus, we get an all-new sculpt of Willem Dafoe, looking menacing as ever. Gobby comes with the full glider, and there’s a full Goblin helmet, too.
Now we just need Jamie Foxx as Electro and Rhys Ifans as Lizard (or at least the CGI version of him), and we’ll have the full roster of villains.
All of the new Marvel Legends “Spider-Man: No Way Home” action figures will be available for pre-order today at Hasbro Pulse and other retailers, though you might have to wait a bit for Green Goblin and Doc Ock pre-orders.
