Bandai are now going above-and-beyond with their latest announcement of several new products from the classic 1978-1979 Toei Spider-Man show from Japan which saw a very different take on the wall-crawler. Very much a Japanese production, the show saw “Supaidāman” doing battle with a variety of enemies more akin to Power Rangers foes then any seen in Spidey comics and the show even featured the Leopardon, a giant robot that could be summoned and was very much their version of a MegaZord.
Included in this product line is a S.H.Figuarts Spider-Man, a wearable Marveler Summoning Device with a Soul of Chogokin Leopardon & Super Minipla Leopardon.
The SHF release is the usual 1:12th scale with various interchangeable hands, portraits, webbing effect pieces and a the Marveler Device sculpted onto the figures wrist with an August 2020 release date. The list price for this is set at Y7150 which roughly converts to $65.
The wearable Marveler Summoning Device with a Soul of Chogokin Leopardon is also a great addition to any collection with the life-size summoning Spider Bracelet featuring a flip-up screen and buttons. The Soul of Chogokin robot stands in at 6.7″ tall and can be articulated and transformed into the Marveler and featured swappable hands, a stand, sword, Spider Protector, a miniature model of Spider-Man, and a Diecast Spider-Machine GP-7. Also of note is the fact that the Leopardon features music & sound effects and should be releasing this September for a premium price of Y22,000 which is just under the $200 price point.
And finally, in the budget price point is the Super Minipla Leopardon which is smaller scale plastic kit which stands in at just under 6″ and can be transformed from Leopardon to the Marveler. Look for this to release in August with a price point of Y4500, thats around $41.
