Toy Biz Spider-Man the New Animated Series Wave 3- 1995

By the time Toy Biz Spider-Man the New Animated Series Wave 3  included one of the most collectible figures of all the Spider-man lines, the original Rhino figure, which was short-packed.

In fact when word got out it sparked off what became known as the great Rhino hunt of 1995 causing prices on the secondary market to soar as collectors feverishly hunted them out.

Over time though the market settled down as more became available and demand began to dip as more collectors managed to acquire him. His price has now leveled off to around the $40-50 mark.

As a result, this series became and probably remains, one of the most popular series of figures.

  • Spider-Man Multi-Jointed with "Super Poseable Action" 
  • Spider-Man Spider Armor with "Super Web Shield”
  • Shocker Shooting Power Blasts 
  • Green Goblin with “Goblin Glider Attack"
  • Scorpion with “Tail Striking Action"
  • Rhino (scarce) with “Head Ramming Action"

Toy Biz Spider-man (Super Poseable)

Super Poseable Super Poseable

was one of the best variants of Spider-Man  ever released by ToyBiz, this figure contained strong articulation but less detailing. He had joints at his ankles, knees, hips (full range of motion), waist, torso, shoulders (full range), elbows, wrists, and neck.

What was nice about the neck was that you can make Spider-man face in almost any direction a normal person could since it worked like a ball-and-socket joint. The fact that he can also twist at the torso lets you pose him is realistic positions.

Toy Biz Spider-man Spider Armor

A heavily armored Toy Biz Spiderman based on a brief appearance of the hero in one of the early comic book series. Great detail and good articulation makes this figure a top pick. This figure had a web shield that could shoot off his arm and had the basic articulation format; its neck, shoulders, elbows, kick out knees.

Toy Biz Shocker

This was the first and only Toy Biz Spider-man action figure released of Shocker and had limited articulation. Shocker (Herman Shultz) was a character from the show who never took of his face mask. His play feature was a shock blast that shot out a little red plastic from his arm. He had articulation at the neck, shoulders, kick out legs, and bendable knees.

 Toy Biz The Green Goblin

Norman Osbourne AKA, The Green Goblin, was a reoccurring villain/enemy of Spiderman, that is included in almost every series.

Unlike the first edition, Toy Biz managed to get Green Goblin’s features right down pat this time, even his evil grin.

This figure came with a couple of cool accessories also, like a pumpkin bomb that can be fitted into one hand with an open palm, and a solid blue Goblin glider with plastic missiles that could be launched by a spring. The goblin could be hooked on placed onto the glider. He had articulation at the neck, shoulders, elbows, kick out legs, and bendable knees.

Toy Biz The Scorpion

This figure is a near-perfect rendition of the character from the show, with the face, backpack, elongated tail, and bright green paint. Scorpion had some great detail, with good articulation and strong sculpting. Posing was rather difficult however, as a result of minimal articulation of the tail. The Scorpions "action feature" was that he could his arm could make his tail strike like a sting when you moved it.

Toy Biz Rhino

Lastly we have Rhino. This was the first release of Rhino and it had its fair share of flaws, including a poorly sculpted head and face. In the show, he was known for his sheer destructive power and love for bashing into things head first. This was taken into consideration in the action figure, as his head could pop up like a head-boot when you pressed a peg in the back of the figure.

However, this was an ultra rare edition in this series, as stated above, and was the one to look out for, as a result of production issues. Probably due to his size.
