Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro revealed its upcoming tie-in swag to Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie (swinging into theaters December 14).
The film focuses on young Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a version of Spider-Man from an entirely different dimension within the Marvel Universe. Over the course of the story, the young webslinger will discover an entire multiverse of Spider-Men (and women), such as Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), Spider-Ham (a Spider-Man who is a talking pig; no joke!), and Spider-Man Noir (Nic Cage). Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Liev Schreiber, Luna Lauren Velez, and Lily Tomlin also lend their voices to the talented cast.
To celebrate the movie, Hasbro created several new products to reflect the never-before-seen Marvel characters, like an 8-inch Spider-Ham figure, whose eye expressions can be manipulated by pressing on his ear. Introduced in 1983, the character, named Peter Porker (get it?), began his life as a spider in the lab of the scientist May Porker. After one of her experiments went horribly wrong, Peter woke up as a walking, talking pig with Spidey powers.
Other figures include 6-inch models of Peni Parker and her SP//dr suit. Peni, originating from Earth-14512, is yet another resident of the Spider-Verse in a reality where the Spidey suit is an impressive piece of mechanized armor (SP//dr), sanctioned by the government and partly powered by a radioactive spider. After the death of her father, the original pilot of the suit, her Uncle Ben and Aunt May allow her to continue on as the only person capable of bonding with the spider within the armor. It's confusing, and yet so awesome!
The other 6-inch figure is the Scorpion, a classic Spider-Man villain that goes by the name Mac Gargan. While he usually wears armor meant to simulate the look of a scorpion, this version of the character is more machine than man, with a host of metal legs and one terrifying robotic pincer.
And finally, we've got a real-life web shooter inspired by the one wielded by Spider-Man Noir, a hardboiled detective version of Spider-Man from the 1930s. Packaged with a can of web fluid, this blaster can fire both webbing and water.
