In just a few short weeks, Marvel fans will finally dive into the Spider-Verse with the release of Sony's highly-anticipated animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The movie is set to star Miles Morales' Spider-Man as the main character, with an older Peter Parker playing the role of mentor to Miles as all manner of alternate versions of Spider-Man appear from parallel universes. Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man Noir, SP//dr and Spider-Ham will all join Miles in his fight against some of the biggest villains out there: Kingpin, the Prowler and, of course, the Green Goblin.
The design of Into the Spider-Verse's Green Goblin is unique, mixing both man and winged monster to offer a supervillain that looks not only dangerous but frightening as well. And now, collector's have a chance to own an amazing vinyl figure of the Spider-Man villain courtesy of popular toy and collectible manufacturer, Funko.
The Everett, Washington-based company has recently begun a new event called Funko Fridays, which sees a special new Pop! figure release exclusively on Target's website. Last week saw the release of a 10-inch tall Pop! figure of Pikachu and, today, Funko has unveiled the latest Funko Fridays exclusive: a 10-inch version of Into the Spider-Verse's Green Goblin.
The collectible is actually a giant-sized version of the smaller, three inch Green Goblin Pop! that is currently available at your local Funko retailer. While the original line of Funko's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Pop! figures was revealed a while ago, the company kept the release of this 10-inch Pop! a secret until its surprise release today.
The Pop! figure was made available at 8 a.m. CST, which means that it is already up on Target's website. Given the rarity of the collectible, it's a safe bet that it will sell out rather quickly. However, with so many of us currently busy scouring the Internet for Black Friday deals, the Pop! might go unnoticed for a little while longer.
The figure currently retails for $29.99 US -- a price that is guaranteed to go up on the secondary market. Don't delay, get yours before it's too late.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, Luna Lauren Velez, Lily Tomlin, Nicolas Cage, John Mulaney and Kimiko Glenn. The film opens on December 14.
