Entertainment Earth and Bif Bang Pow! Introduce Spider-Man Push Puppet for SDCC

When classic, retro-styled toys collide with iconic, beloved Marvel characters, everyone wins! San Diego Comic-Con gets the very coolest things. The only thing cooler than actual, vintage toys are modern toys that recreate a classic retro style. That’s because not only can they capitalize on the classic aesthetic, but they can also iron out the little problems those toys had and make them perform even better. And when those classic, retro toys are made in very limited numbers, then collectors tend to get excited!

Thanks to Entertainment Earth, you can get this amazing Spider-Man Wood Push Puppet—Convention Exclusive, while supplies last. This exclusive puppet lets you control cute little Peter Parker in his Spider-Man getup! Push the hidden button on the bottom and he dances, sways flops, and pops back up! This toy is reminiscent of traditional push puppets, which you might know as Wakouwa.

Have I mentioned that his 5-inch wooden push puppet is a convention exclusive? Created from solid wood, this push puppet features vivid hand-painted artwork and a few decal elements. This is a highly limited production of only 492 pieces, available only to those who come and buy it from the Entertainment Earth booth at San Diego Comic-Con. Each one is individually numbered with a holographic sticker. Hurry down to the booth!

The first opportunity fans can grab this individually numbered and limited edition exclusive will be at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20, 2017, in the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343)!
