In 2001 a new line of Spiderman Classics was released which, although in
many places being listed as only one series, in fact consisted of two series.
The first series included the
subtitle Classics on the package, whereas the second series didn’t and as a
result is often mistakenly listed as the
first series in the Spiderman 2002 line, however the official site had it
listed as a Spiderman Classis series.
The original series featured Legends style clamshell packaging and each
figure came with a reprinted comic that was significant to the accompanying
figure.The second series however was packaged with basic backingcard and there
were no reprinted comics issued with the figures.
Also these figures seemed to have been more aimed at children as they
had extra articulation, action features and many of the Spiderman figures wore
costumes that were not featured in any of the comics.
