On May 5th, one of Japan’s largest import toy store, Blister, held an in-store event called “Spider-Man vs Blister“, to celebrate the release of Spider-Man 3. The event had tons of surprises. On exhibit were some of the rarest Spider-Man merchandises & collectibles, including a few Blister exclusives. Some 1000 fans lined up to check out the festivities.
To coincide with the release of the movie, MEDICOM TOY launched 2 special V.C.D. series: Original Version, which price around JP¥ 6,090 (~US$ 50) and the Spider-Man vs. Blister Exclusive, which include Black Suited Spider-Man, limited to 500 figures at a price of JP¥ 6,090 (~US$ 50) and Venom figure, limited to 1000 at a price of JP¥ 7,140 (US$ 60).
The unique deformed silhouettes found on the 2 series were done by Hideaki Hata (aka H8GRAPHIX), known for his designs in many other MEDICOM TOY V.C.D.s, like Storm Trooper, Clone Trooper, Tie Fighter Pilot, Darth Vader, MISFITS, Secret Base’s King Skull Brain, Wolverine, etc… Items provided by MEDICOM TOY, photos by AKI.
