New Amazing Spider-Man toys reveal first look at The Lizard

Dec. 30, 2011by:

"VROOM! VROOM!"

Sometime the marketing teams don't quite work together, and toys reveal story details and character designs that the film guys have been trying to keep under wraps.  

Such was the case last month, when a Pez dispnser (of all things!) gave us the first look at the design for The Lizard in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Today we find out that the design was indeed spot-on, since we have the first real look at him via the remote controller for the above mini-quad. What do you folks think?

Besides this there's another toy that reveals a minor spoiler for the film, so AVERT YOUR EYES, spoiler-phobes!

Below is a Mega Blocks playset that comes with figures of Spider-Man, Lizard, and... Swat Lizard? Yes, it seems that there's some truth to the rumor that there will be more than one Lizard after all, and that Dr. Connor will transform an entire SWAT team into his own leathery-skinned goon squad.

Perhaps we'll have better looks at all these leaping lizards in the next trailer for the film.

It's always amusing to read emotionally distraught fanboys take great personal offense over some folks not liking the latest filmic incarnation of their cherished comic book property; as though they conceived of the character themselves. Truly entertaining stuff.
Here's some more fuel for the fire. The design of The Lizard that we see here, reminds me a lot of this:

Count yourself in the group, buddy. You're forgetting that the "haters" are most likely well informed, and simply do not like the human-faced version of the Lizard.

Awesome!

If Hindu Lizard rides a lizard designed 4 wheeler I will see this 10x in theaters!!! But really, I am willing to give this a shot. Hopefully it will be more cheesy than "realistic" though...

Naysayers...

Please read a comic before you give your amateur opinion. This is pretty damn close to the original design, so I'm down. You people are too hard to please; it has to be how YOU envision it. Make your own version if you're not satisfied, that's what imaginations are for.

The snouty version just plain looks better, and is therefore more popular, and therefore what everyone wants.
The original design doesn't translate well in live-action, because it looks like a cheap Star Trek alien.

Reading a comic shouldn't be necessary to enjoy a film. The film should stand on it's own merits.

Nevertheless, if the comic is no longer using the original design, then there may be a reason for that.

I guarantee this doesn't even come close to the greatness that was Spider Man and Spider Man 2.

Will be better than three (most likely).

They could make Titanic 4000, set it totally in space and have the ship hit an asteroid and it would still be better than SM3. The first 2 SM sucked as well, all be it not as bad at 3.The first one he fought a fucking Power Ranger reject. And in the second one he ran around half of the movie with his mask off and made the people of New York "promise" not to tell anyone.

I love you naysayers

Does it look like a Goomba? Yes. Does it look like Killer Croc? Yes. Does it fit with the original goal/intent to make The Lizard like Ditko's design? Yes. So, what is the big deal? We're seeing The Lizard through stages in his transformation. He's still undergoing changes till we get to the giant snout. I do not think for a second this is the final product especially with the leaked pics from Comic-Con 2011. There will be several Lizard designs having Connors go through a Cronenberg "Fly"-like

Till a second trailer comes then judgment is on the table, but till then... quit getting your fanboys' underwear in a knot. Everything has been just about perfect with the casting (the suit isn't all that great, but it's an update) and Sony seems to have learned their lesson from the Raimi films and correcting the mistakes of the past so I ask again... what are we getting all worked up about? Is it still the big fondness for Raimi's films that people can't looked past them and give someone else a chance? I was and still am a big lover of Raimi's run, but I've accepted Webb and the change that follows. You should all too.

It does look bad, but it's still just a toy. I'll reserve judgement until I see him in the actual movie. BUT, if he looks that bad in the movie too I hope he rides the Lizard scooter just to make it as silly as possible.

Imagine if Lizard actually rode around on that four-wheeler/scooter? I amuse he doesn't, so why create a toy with him on it?

I'm totally serious, that buggy is going to look great at the cinema.
And by the looks of it they've shot the entire climax of the film with MEGA BLOKS, which is a bold choice but I think it could just about work.

They did this with Avatar too... After years of keeping the creature designs and look of the film under wraps, the marketing dickheads blew everything by showing off the toys at Comic Con. This pisses me off. Why waste your time on hiding stuff if they just ruin it jsut to pimp a few piece of crap toys.
Get you're shit together studios.

Simple as they may be, the Na'vi are interesting to look at. So for the studio to release images of the Lizard, who looks like absolute shit, isn't that big of a deal.

The fan boy in me wishes that they used the Lizard from the animated series (90's), he looked so cool then. Aside form that it will be interesting to see this guy on the screen and how he moves around.

Dr Manhattan was naked because he abandoned his humanity, no longer needing clothes to make him fit in. Plus he was naked in the comic, and lizard wasn’t – so that’s that.

Lizard needs to be like the wolfman.
