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!
