Awesome Toy Collection – ToyBiz Man-Spider, Doppelganger, Alien Spider Slayer

Hi world! Still continuing with the Spider-Man theme, for this month I’m showcasing a couple of ToyBiz Spider-Man figures I have acquired, that which I feel are somewhat compatible with the Marvel Universe figures.

Presenting: ToyBiz Man-Spider, Doppelganger, and Alien Spider Slayer.

Back in the 1990s, ToyBiz produced 5-inch action figures based on Marvel Comics as well as from Marvel animated series. In general, most of these figures are way too big when compared with the more recent 4-inch Marvel Universe figures, but sometimes the ToyBiz figure of a character who is meant to be big-sized will fit right in with the MU figures, as in the case of the above three.

Man-Spider is what happens when Peter Parker’s mutation goes haywire every so often in the comics or in the cartoons. In Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Parker’s original spider-bite that gave him his powers was causing him further mutations. However, his attempts to cure himself resulted in him growing four new arms, and then an accelerated mutation into the Man-Spider.

Doppelganger is an evil, near-mindless duplicate of Spider-Man that was created by Magus during the Infinity War. The Doppelganger possesses Spider-Man’s strength, speed, wall-climbing abilities, and spider-sense, and also has six arms, claws, fangs, and the ability to produce its own razor-edged webbing.

Doppelganger has made appearances in the comics, Spider-Man: TAS, and video games.

The Spider Slayers are a series of killer robots created specifically to hunt and kill Spider-Man. They were made by robotics expert and scientist Spencer Smythe, and later by his son Alistair Smythe. The Alien Spider Slayer, also known as Spider Slayer Mark X, was created by Alistair Smythe possibly by using alien technology. The Alien Spider Slayer is extremely fast and agile. It also had a large amount of spikes and claws sprouting from its body.

The Alien Spider Slayer was originally planned to appear on Spider-Man: TAS but that did not happen. He instead appeared in the Spider-Man (1995 video game) which itself was based on elements from Spider-Man: TAS. The Alien Spider Slayer apparently has not appeared in the comics.

The Alien Spider Slayer somewhat resemble a Xenomorph from the Alien franchise.

“Oh come on!” – Spider-Man finds himself surrounded by these eight limb freaks.
