Toy Fair reveals the most detailed look at The Amazing Spider-Man's villain thus far

02.14.2012

Ah, Toy Fair, you spoilerific little convention, you. Every year, Toy Fair rolls out the best and brightest that the toy market has to offer, especially in terms of the marketing machines behind the year's biggest films.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is certainly in that category and these new images from Diamond Select reveal a very detailed look at Spidey's nemesis, The Lizard. Up until now we've had some cheesy product shots and some blink-and-you-missed it imagery from the new trailer, but these are some rather in-your-face looks at the reptilian foe, as well as a few peeks at Peter Parker's new webhead duds.

Check out the images below:

I must say, I'm pretty impressed with The Lizard's look in the Diamond Select figures and statues.  Nice detail, scary, but not overly so.  I'm one of those guys who wasn't blown away by the new trailer, but I love when I'm proven wrong about a movie.  It's a win win for me, unless I've bet money on it.  Then, it looks like I'm changing my identity and moving my shit again.

Anyone else bothered by the red-tinted Spider-Man goggles?  They look shiny in the trailer, but all the figures I've seen have a red hue.  I don't get it.  Do not compute. 

So, aside from the figures above, if you're struggling with what to wear for Halloween this year or if you need a new costume for holding up liquor stores, then look no further than this Lizard Halloween costume.  Does not come with a hold up gun.

Oh, and for the ladies.  You are welcome and advised to dress like Gwen Stacy whenever you want and don't let anyone try to stop you!

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN swings into action on July 3, 2012.

i'm an old school spidey fan...

people seemed to have wanted the mcfarlane lizard, all snout and fangs, but this reminds me of the ditko design, minus the coat and pants, which i'm cool with. love the cast, irritated by th suit, but it isnt a huge departure and it can be fixed in a sequal. at least he has webshooters...now for the tidbit, Gwen. but if they do what i hope and cast deborah woll as mj, it would be tough

I kinda dig the look of The Lizard here. I only wish there were some shred of his lab coats here and there. Even The Hulk has his pant on. Why can't The Lizard have some lab coat around him?

You people...

This looks pretty damn close to Lizard's first appearance. I wish people would do some fucking research before they lose their shit. Quit looking at ONLY McFarlane's Lizard. Everyone just needs to accept that Raimi's Spider-Man were fun, but not great by any means. Yes, even Spider-Man 2. Give this film a chance to tell the story a bit more accurately and less cheesy.

Oh, you must be that guy who assumes people don't do some fucking research before losing their shit. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Regardless of the Lizards original design, the snouty version very simply looks better.

What worries me most is that they still have not revealed any Mario or Luigi action figures.

I think all of this bad fan reaction to The Lizard's design is deliberate on Sony's part to distract us from how unbelievably god-awful Spider-man's costume is.

No lab coat, no snout, and no razor sharp teeth? I'm failing to see how this is The Lizard at all...

Sigh, still excited for the movie anyway. Just wish they got the villain design right.

Ummm.....

I know that this is supposed to be the old school look of the lizard, but.... I have to agree that face kind of reminds me of the goombas from the Mario Brothers Movie.

Just something to add...

It' be nice to get scared of being bitten by the lizard. He is a lizard after all. Mostly human face? Not giving me that reaction.

What's his main attack gonna be? Punching Spider man then hitting him with his tail over and over again?

Fully agree with the peeps who want a snout. I'm only 23 so the snout lizard is the one I've known my whole life and the Lizard has been one of my favorite Spidey villans. Really hope they do it a la the fly and he eventually grows one for the climax. If not, his lizard swat team should at least have snouts. Be nice to differentiate them from the head honcho.

Bahaha, thank you for the laugh! And I agree with anomaly7, every time I see pictures of the Lizard in this film I just think to myself, "why you no have snout, Lizard?!!" Purists can say, "well the original design of the lizard didn't have a snout," all they want, but I don't care... give me a snout! I don't hate the Lizard's design, but my

Lizard is starting to grow on me. If we are talking about the movies, I would have to take Gwen, Dunst looks half retard imo. In the comics however, MJ was always drawn waay hotter than Gwen.

I really wish the Lizard had a snout. He just looks strange without it. Anyway, I'm expecting a "Superman Returns" fan reaction to this movie. Some will like it, some won't. I'll admit parts of the trailer look good, but still not excited about seeing the origin story again.
