Fans of Toei’s Spider-Man series have long awaited for today’s news! As today, Tamashii Nations has solicited a pair of items based on the series; a S.H.Figuarts of the titular hero and a renewal Soul of Chogokin of the mighty Leopardon.
Toei’s interpretation of Spider-Man is classic and legendary among tokusatsu and comic book fans. Whereas, the toy collectors of these fandoms have been asking for years to have any company make Toei’s Spider-Man as an articulated action figure. Bandai’s Tamashii Nations has now taken the title of being the first to produce such a figure.

Back in 2006, Bandai released GX-33 in their Soul of Chogokin line-up. This release was Leopardon and Spider-Man. The set included the Marveller/ Leopardon and a large vinyl of Spider-Man. Today’s new reveal follows in the footsteps of GX-59R: Mirai Robo Daltanious in taking an older SOC release and upgrading it for its new reissue. GX-33R features the same contents as the original release but has swapped the vinyl Spider-Man for a 1:1 scale wearable Spider Bracelet with music and voices from the series.
